“No Smoking” is not just a sign in the Philippines, it’s national law. You’re allowed to smoke in your private property but not in public. Unfortunately, there are lots of European tourists here and they ALL smoke. I have to run to the street to escape their stink. The alcohol tax (aka sin tax) is used to pay for universal health care. So the more people “sin”, the better it is for their health 😜. The red light district in Manila is one of the safest places to be at night. Police is everywhere to protect the foreigners. One of the delicacies is Balut, a boiled fertilized egg at 14-19 weeks, basically a chicken fetus in utero. The bones are still forming so it tastes like egg with a cartilage; yummy!
