I do not know much about the phillipines , but if what you wrote here is the case, I now have a better sense why pinoys are not looking good in the eyes of SIngaporeans. And you are wrong ..Not only Singapore cares ..In Hong Kong , taiwan people are disgusted and do complain about similar actions by presumably PRCs.

A lot of peole are saying only animals pee and poo anywhere.. Even dogs are toilet trained not to poo anywhere and specific places by their owners..

I got your point, and I reinforced it. Manila is so dirty from industrial pollution, slums, and general uncleanliness that ****ting on the sidewalk is the least of the city's worries. Anyways, this thread isn't about Manila.

LOL, they should feel ashamed. They made my mother traumatized but what she witnessed. PRCs have no concept of personal and public hygiene, it's amazing. When you scratch below the developed world façade, it's still a third world country.

I never saw anyone in the Philippines defecate in public. I used to go to very poor places for our community outreach programs in school before and I never saw anyone doing it. The Philippines may be poor but people aren't that uncivilised to do it in public.

Thank God for that. I was about to totally write off the Philippines if that happened as well. China is probably the last country I'll visit in eastern Asia because of that. It's no wonder people in China get so sick. I can understand why Singaporeans are getting upset over the PRCs migrating over there.

But, the interesting thing is, our PRCs here are not known to do that. I wonder if it's a regional thing in China, too?

It is not ! Being civilised is one of the few things we have to thank the West for.
The Filipinos are one of the cleanest people in Asia when it comes to personal hygiene ( body odour and underarm hair in women are not acceptable ). Everyone takes a bath everyday and most people do it 2 times a day.
I still get a culture shock seeing Parents and Grandparents carrying their crotchless babies and toddlers in public and especially seeing them letting their toddlers pee in supermarket and hospitals.

However pooing in public seems to be acceptable behaviour in Manila according to Your countrymen Kent.

This is one of the things I was referring to the last time when I said the West taught us to be civilised.
We may be poor but we are not uncivilised.
Most coutries in Asia use squat toilets. Filipinos use Western toilets.

I still get culture shock whenever I see toddlers peeing anywhere and last year was the worst when I saw a 7 year old pooping at Disneyland Hongkong just outside of the food stalls.

I don't know why he said that. The Philippines is quite a popular country and Filipinos are quite popular as well. If it is like that, Filipinos would have been famous already by doing that same as the Mainlanders but they are not.

Unless if what he meant was if it is going to happen in the Philippines, it wouldn't be given so much attention as the media has more things to talk about like the corruption in the government, crimes and celebrities than to talk about someone pooping outside.
