The Philippines - an Aussie Expat Difinition

This is an open letter from Pete an Aussie who traveled to the Philippines and his letter contained what he likes from the Philippines more.

Hello, this is Pete from Australia,

I think you've done everything right, from a moral perspective
their attitudes, etc. I have just recently holiday in the Philippines
and I can honestly say, I traveled five continents, many countries, more than
three months, and the best memories are from the Philippines people:
their friendship, their prospects, despite the fact that some of the people I met,
their situation seemed hopeless. I want to walk backwards in one night
Manila, and give some money to the homeless on the streets, and that
I would say, "Thank you". Here in Australia, in the wrong area, giving
someone $ 5, and would not say thanks and demand more!

I think in this situation, have met a person of true value, and I
I wish him all the luck in the world!

This is my first response, I am interested in living in Samar in the
future, and would be interested in talking with any American or Australian
in this area.

I sincerely hope their relationship youall flowers and wish him well.

Local execs try to muffle party noise in Boracay

By Nestor P. Burgos Jr.

ILOILO CITY – Party animals in Boracay should be seen, not heard: the island authorities are launching a campaign to muffle noise coming from parties in the world-renowned resort island.

Virtus Gil, interior and local government undersecretary and secretary of the Boracay Eminent Persons Group, said policemen armed with decibel meters would monitor sound levels in popular bars, discos and other establishments on the island to regulate the intensity of sound systems, especially at night.

“I met with the owners of bars and discos and we agreed that music should be toned down to a maximum of 60 decibels by midnight,” Gil told the Inquirer in a telephone interview. The 60-decibel limit is approximately the sound of a moderately strong handclap, according to Gil.

Gil said some guests on the island have complained they cannot sleep because of loud music coming from bars and discos, which are beside resorts and hotels. Partying in these bars and discos usually lasts until dawn, especially during weekends.

He said police would confiscate the sound amplifiers of bars and discos that exceed the limit after midnight.

Noise reduction system

Gil said he would also propose that bars, discos and establishments playing loud music be required to install noise reduction systems or sound proofing equipment to avoid disturbing other guests.

The Boracay Special Tourist Protection Office and Land Transportation Office also inspected all vehicles, especially motorcycles, on the island to check for permits and to check headlights, signal lights and driving licenses.

Emission tests will also be done to reduce pollution.

The growing number of vehicles, especially motorcycles with two-stroke engines, has been blamed for air and noise pollution on the island.

Tests in three stations on the island show noise levels beyond the standard value of 50 decibels (db) for residential areas and 60 db for areas along the road during mornings especially between 8 a.m. to 9 .am., according to data from the draft master plan for Boracay prepared last year by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

The DENR is seeking the abolition or conversion of tricycles with two-stroke engines.

Gil said authorities would strictly implement the ordinance prohibiting yachts and sailing boats from mooring in front of the 4-kilometer white beach, the island’s main attraction.
