    Duterte threatens to shut down Boracay

    He's not mixing his words........

    "You go into the water, itís smelly. Smell of what? ..... Because everything that goes out in Boracay...itís destroying the environment or the Republic of the Philippines and creating a disaster coming,"

    Time also to introduce proper penalties for the residents who are contributing to the vast land-fill site that the Philippines is rapidly becoming... not just Boracay.

    Stop LITTERING !

    The whole place is disgusting . Garbage wherever you look. Tragic.

    The trouble we are having here is that the main dump will not accept anything not bio degradable so no one knows what to do with the stuff!!
    Locals used to burn it with leaves but local bureaucracy is getting stricter about the no burning policy so now the fishermen just chuck it in the sea...
    We burn ours at night so the smoke is not so visible..

    I still can't get used to the locals just throwing everything (litter) on to the floor, wherever they are. They just don't care. I don't like being negative about the place as a rule, but I can't forgive such behaviour, which has fouled up the whole country.

    Where we live,Littering per se doesn't seem to be a big problem..That surprises me given the fact that to this day I dont think I have ever seen a public litter bin that was provided by the authorities..

    I don't need a litter bin Fred.

    In the absence of one, I take my waste home with me.

    I have yet to see a road in the Phils which wasn't strewn both sides with garbage.

    It's down to attitude. Amazing that the locals haven't heard of cleanliness being next to godliness... considering their devotion to the bible.

    I just watched Vinnie Jones world's toughest cops this morning. The Philippine one. They are conducting a raid on Tondo. Across the wall - in huge letters - is, indeed, CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS. The street is a sea of rubbish.



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Haven't been to Boracay for years. You paid the pollution tax before you boarded the boat across. How come the tax hasn't been used to address the problem?
