Hot on Spot: Expat's "20 Reasons Why I Dislike PH" Channelfix video sparks online debate
A YouTube video uploaded by user xharlan03x and titled "20 Reasons Why I Dislike Philippines" featuring an expat identified as Jimmy Sieczka has sparked online debate.

"20 Reasons Why I Dislike Philippines" by Jimmy Sieczka (Note: The name Jimmy Sieczka originally appeared with the YouTube video title. But sometime after 9:24 a.m., March 15, the name was removed. Later that same day, the video itself was removed by the user from YouTube. We later found a version of the video, which is the one embedded on this page now, uploaded on the Channelfix website.)

(SPOT.ph) A YouTube video uploaded by user xharlan03x and titled "20 Reasons Why I Dislike Philippines" featuring an expat identified as Jimmy Sieczka has sparked online debate. In the video, Sieczka takes a walk through what appears to be Cebu City. (In one scene, a Robinsons Cebu sign is visible in the background.) As the video title indicates, Sieczka enumerates the things he doesn't like about the country.

In the video description, the byline Michael Goodman appears and the text reads: "If you think really hard, I'm sure you can come up with a couple reasons not to like something. In the land he loves so much, let Jimmy take you on a lighthearted tour of the negative aspects of living in a crowded country located at the earth's equator." The video also bears the mark, Channelfix.

Sieczka begins his "video essay" with this spiel: "Hi, I'm Jimmy. I've been living and working in the Philippines for three and a half years. In that time, I've seen and experienced all the beauty and wonders that this country has to offer. I've also seen and experienced all the fucking bullshit that this country has to offer."

What's first on Sieczka's "dislike list"? It is, in his words, "a gigantic hole on the sidewalk" that is, for some reason, only temporarily covered up by a trash can. His list also includes vendors who keep pestering him to buy Cialis (allegedly a sexual performance enhancer), the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (as well as its acronym), the lack of proper sanitation in market food stalls, Pinoys' obsession with whitening products, pollution, plastic bags on the street, drivers who ignore traffic laws, lazy security guards who don't really provide security, and so on.

Though there were YouTube commenters who didn't like what Sieczka was saying, there were also those who agreed with him. User Yuusuke020393 said: "I am a Filipino, and I also hate this "side" of the Philippines." User gregycka11 pointed out: "Come on guys, what this dude talking about is true. There's no need to be so pissed [about it]. I LOL'd [at] every f*cking thing he just said. (Criticism) is good, take it and learn from it. Peace." Then again, other users called Sieczka "arrogant," "ethnocentric," and "whiny."

"20 Reasons Why I Love Philippines" by Walter Masley and Jeff Lester (Note: This video was also originally uploaded on YouTube with the names of the men featured in the video cited in the video title. The YouTube video was also taken down on March 15. The version currently embedded on this page is from the the Channelfix website.)

It's worth noting that the same user who uploaded the Sieczka video also uploaded one that's titled "20 Reasons I Love the Philippines" featuring expats Walter Masley and Jeff Lester. Nevertheless, some users have also criticized the Masley and Lester video for being "sarcastic."

    ANG YAYABANG NUNG MGA NAGSASABING "we don't need you if you don't like the Philippines", "if you have so many complaints.. please vanish and don't go back again", "so what if you hate the Philippines". Mga *l*l! Bumubili kayo ng imported, may mga kakilala kayong babae na umaasa sa internet dating para makabingwit ng foreigner, naiinggit kayo sa disiplina ng ibang bansa, tumititig kayo sa mga puti sa mga malls, nanonood kayo ng hollywood movies, idol niyo mga foreign artists. MGA GAGO! Wag kayong IPOKRITO at aminin na bumabagsak na ang kalidad ng pagka-Pilipino. PURO KAYO DENIAL!

    I like his video. He practically summed up much of the visible things in Philippines metropolitan area. Admit-tingly Majority of Filipinos actually share the same sentiments. To all the haters of this video, F@cky@! You Probably Corrupt in Denial! Yeah Pat your self at the back and be naive.

    u know all of the info on the vid is true but why i dont understand is that issues has been a problem for almost eternity here in philippines, and obviously because of our not good history as well, i mean being a slave for a decades? do u think itll be easy to change a very poor country especially our govnt til now is not stopping for corruption, why always say "f*ck" "b*llsh*t" and some strong words that will truly hurt filipinos. but u know even we are poor were still hoping and doing for the growth

    Why would anyone hate him for this?? It's FUNNY. If you find it offensive then something is clearly wrong with you. It's not like he is lying for every bit of information he indicated in the video, everything in the video actually speaks for itself. So why hate him?

    People need to calm down and stop taking constructive criticisms way too personally. Bakit ba ganoon tayo ka-pikon? Why not see the video as a wake up call and and as a way to improve? Mga Filipinos talaga, they see everything as a personal attack. Don't because it's not and he's just being honest. Why take these too personally? I would take these as constructive criticism and I thank Jimmy for taking the time to point out the Philippines flaws because we need to get a grip and put our sh*t together as a country. Filipinos sadly lack the comprehension to understand the message and I'm Filipino myself.

    True, marami ang dapat mabago sa Pilipinas but it is also true that we, filipinos who love this country are hurt and offended by comments of this non filipino. Ganun lang iyon kasimple. We are not denying the fact that some of the things said in the video are true. What we are saying is that it is just annoying.

    OF COURSE, WE FILIPINOS ARE EXPECTED TO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY BUT WE ARE TOO BLIND OR IN DENIAL TO STATE THE NEGATIVE THINGS HERE. THERE'S NOT ONLY 20 REASONS TO DISLIKE THE PHILS.

    OPINION IS AN OPINION. NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY TO MR. Jimmy Sieczka AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND THIS THING--- THE FACT THAT ALL THEY SAID ON THE VIDEO IS DEFINITELY TRUE.

    I'ved watched the video, i do understand his concerns but somehow it seems that he doesn't understand how Filipinos show their hospitality, like the taxi drivers blowing their horn, smiling and waving at him is just a sign of acknowledging him and saying hi to him. I just hope somebody could do a video at the subway train station in New York so that they could see that even here in United States there are poop, trash, rats,cockroach and spit at their subway train station.
    On the other hand, this should serve as eye opener to our government and to our fellow Filipino to work hard in fighting against corruption and be responsible Filipino citizens.

    American sarcasm at its very best. Funny shit, M.C. Duane. Had me rolling on the floor. On a serious note, I can understand why a few Pinoys are offended, but shit, I say this all the time about the Philippines each time I go home. It just so happens it is coming from a white dude this time. The dude loves the country so get off it. Truth matters. Truth hurts. Now fix it so it don't hurt no more! Instead of being offended, open your eyes, and don't settle for how things are, but rather create a revolution. Create a Philippines that is up to your standards.

    There are good things and bad things about any country ... including Philippines. No doubt, Philippines could have been "a pearl of the orient seas", no doubt it could be have a "paradise" tourism always touts about ... but there is no doubt that there are so many things the are so maddening and so *gly about the Philippines. Jimmy, who happened to be in the Philippines, does have the right to make a list of what he dislikes about this country, and I imagine 20 is just a low number. If that is not on the list, make this #1: Driving is horrendous, drivers are undisciplined and f... idiots. Filipinos should not be so thin-skinned about criticism. Instead, learn from it. The truth is Philippines is a beautiful country, but it is presumptuous to assume that "It is more fun in the Philippines". Compared to what?

    Maybe he should try one of those South American countries which also offer easy living and cheap too. Mexico. He probably won't last a blasted minute, with his head cut off or end up in a gurney with multi-stab wounds. This goes the same with the other Latino countries. So, why not the States. The living is easy, free food stamps, welfare, free shelter if you are lucky. You don't have to work. The wetbacks will do it for you.

    I can give 3 reasons why I like the Philippines (during summer; kahit mainit ang summer dito sa amin):
    - ice candy
    - halo halo
    - ice cream
    eating these cold and sweet stuff while reading feeds and comments in spot.ph. You, haters of the Philippines, who unfortunately, do not know how to appreciate our lives and country, be gone and go where you please.

If we really want to boast for our country to be the best lets prove it to them. I'm living in Cebu for over 25 years proper sanitation was one of our deficiency you could see that anywhere in the side-street plastics bags, plastic bottles, spit, and dogshit, lets avoid throwing waste everywhere. lets start doing proper Sanitation.

    hmm what a F*cking video. And i wonder why you lived and worked in Philippines for 3 and a half years with all those annoyances. Shame on you!!! You actually forgot the fact that this country has sheltered you and fed you for 3 and a half years of your wasted life. Why don't you go back to your beloved cage in the jungle where you came from and leave phil. :) i think those things that you enumerated makes the Philippines MORE FUN. Some may say that your just telling the truth, i say you and them are hypocrites. simple lang naman ang solusyon sa mga hinaing nyo eh. umalis kayo nang pilipinas, nang mabawasan ang basura dito :)

    A "film"? posted online by Michael Goodman, Denver, USA narrated by and "starring" Jimmy "the nerdy timmy" Sieczka (aka idiot).

    Jimmy says he's been living and working in the Phils for 3½ years (where have we all heard that before?). The idiot says, while wearing a goofy "nerd" hat and a tee shirt depicting a "young (boy) child" flipping the "finger": I've seen all the f*cking b*llsh*t this country has to offer (later repeatedly refers to "This f*cking country") and then shows:

    1. A hole in a side walk covered by a drum . . .. . . Big freaking deal!

    2. A street "cialis" vender. Jimmy claims that it's "obvious that he doesn't suffer from erectile dysfunction (I beg to differ) and he erroneously thinks only "older people" would need cialis. So you're saying the USA doesn't have street vendors? Wow who knew?

    3. An open market, While saying "f**king" almost every other word. There's a reason it's called an "open market" Jimmy. If you want refrigerated food, do as I do and go to a "super market".

    4. A newspaper article about terrorists "MILF". Hey Jimmy ole boi the USA has terrorists too or don't you read the papers and watch the news there? Have you ever heard of the NYPD, NOPD, CIA, Federal Bureaucracy of low-Intelligence, Hombre Land Security? GWB?

    5. A large ongoing construction site claiming they never finish what they start. Said f**king 4 times. Jimmy I know you have no idea how things are built but big projects takes time. Have a few more San Migs with your faggot and let the real men and women worry about construction.

    6. Whitening creams/lotions and b*tched that Filipinos want to be white. So Jimmy, in reality, is that worse or different from “whites” getting tans and bleaching/coloring their hair or wearing baggy clothing like the "bruthas and Chicanos'"? Or trying to shove "our thinking and way of life" onto others (Filipinos, Iraqis and Afghans)?

    7. Traffic and pollution. In a major city no less. Wow I cannot even imagine such a thing!

    8. Complains about a tiny plastic bag for his purchase of "gum" as being a waste of time and makes more litter. Yet he's walks around nagging and making a nonsense video. Jimmy ole boi pitch the f'in plastic in the trash and forget about it.

    9. A tiny little fender bender then Jimmy complains that no one follows traffic laws. Jimbo you're walking what does traffic have to do with you? Why complain about things you know nothing of?

    10. complains about cr's while showing the filthiest of cr's. Obviously in some trashy shabu ghetto and Jimmy claims all cr's in the Phils are like this. Jimbo try going to a respectable, decent neighborhood to use any number of cr's like a Shell, Total etc., gas station, a major mall, restaurant, Jollibee, Mang Inasal, McDo, etc. Stay out of the shabu distributors places. For that matter, deposit your crap in your own cr.

    11. Complains that security guards are lazy, he doesn't like that they are smiling and talking. He says they don't do anything and should be doing "something security based". Hahahaha that is soooooo freaking funny! Yes security persons, remember your jobs require you do something based on security. WTH does that actually mean? Jimmy the fact that you (a rat faced white zero punk) can stand in the middle of Cebu City openly criticizing the Philippines and Filipinos and no one beats the hell out of you or takes your camera and nerdy sneakers proves the guards are doing "security based work".

    12. Complains about people pissing anywhere and everywhere, while jimmy pisses in public on cam no less. Can you say hypocrite, Jeemmy?

    13. Horns beeping - complains that people are beeping horns while he's (a foreigner) standing beside a busy street waving and filming passers-by. Damn you Filipinos why do you have to be so friendly anyway? (joke lang) Jimmy is an idiot!

    14. Complains about small napkins . Jimmy says they don't come in small sizes; they were cut down to small size. Jimmy never been inside a grocery store in he's life, have you jimbo?

    15. Beggars are annoying. So annoy them back like I do. I ask them for money if they continue to hassle me. Where are beggars not annoying? So beggars in the USA aren't annoying Jimmy? Perhaps it's because in the US beggars can tell you have no money so they don't bother with asking you. IDIOT

    16. Roosters crowing so he can't read a book. I agree roosters should be seen not heard, just like children and radios right Jimboi? We should start a revolution to shut up those damn noisy kids, radios and roosters (oh lets not forget to shut Jimmy up too).

    17. Music playing everywhere in the commercial district in a large city during a Festival. Again SHOCKING, UNHEARD OF, DISGUSTING. Jimmy the music drowns out the roosters but still you're unhappy? You're an idiot.

    18. Cockroaches . . . in a city? 'Shockin" oh noh pack my bags I'm going to NY City, Atlanta or New Orleans to get away from roaches. There are roaches everywhere idiot! There’s even one right there in your mouth, it comes out every time to blab!

    19. People who help you park, back out etc., expecting a tip (even though they don't actually ask for a tip). If you want to give a tip, then go ahead give ‘em, if you don’t, the locals won’t bother you! By the way, you’re on foot, why complain about something you can’t afford?

    20. Shows a close up of a big assed gay in a bar then asks why are all the "hot girls" “ladyboys”? They aren't Jimmy; it's just that you prefer gay men over actual women.

    21. Complains about Koreans hanging out together and can't speak English. Jimmy they just don't want to hang out or talk with you. Who cares anyway Jimbo? If you think there are too many Koreans in the Philippines you should take a trip to Korea. They are literally everywhere! That would blow your mind!

    22. Motorcycles are loud and annoying. Yes because you don't have one and have to walk everywhere. So kill yourself Jimmy and solve all the problems.

    The thing na hindi ako nag agree doon sa Jimmy na yun is the fact na yung mga sinasabi nya is not unique to the Philippines and similar countries. Sa America and even in big European cities, ang pangit tingnan ang dumi sa mga inner cities. Kung wala sanang ganun sa America, then he has the right na sabihin yung dumi sa pinas. Pero hindi eh, so wala siyang karapatan magsalita ng ganun. Hypocrite! Obviously the guy is racist. If he wants a nice and clean place in the Philippines, sana sa business section na lang siya ng Makati or sa Tagaytay kaya mamalagi. In America, he should avoid the inner city neighborhood of Newark, NJ or Baltimore, MD or even Washington, DC. and Los Angeles.

    One thing, that guy's(Jimmy) comments about Cebu and the country in general are not representative of most Americans. Most people, for example, don't find having a lot of security guards around annoying. In fact, it helps them feel safe. That's the same reason that you will find a strong presence of the police in NY's subways and Times Square. I find the millions of graffiti in most big American cities as well as most major European cities a sore to my eyes. What is he talking about? How about the many homeless Americans lying around with their junks in city parks and virtually anywhere? What a hypocrite!

    A nation is set distinct among others not because of an advanced technology...it is UNITY!
    Our country belongs to what we call Le Tiers Monde...isa sa mahihirap ng bansa...and reality wise we need foreign countries to have an opportunity..to have better meals set on our tables...Some Filipinos are already well off & enjoying privileges from foreign countries, good job!!!..well done!!!...but if you agree that our homeland be mocked just because you are already away from the Philippines' hand-to mouth day to day existence, you are someone with NO PRINCIPLE and you DON'T DESERVE a homeland.... We as filipinos have a bad side and we will not contest that, but we amongst other nations are hard-task masters, we perservere and excel in what we do... THAT IS WHY THESE FOREIGNERS PREFER A FILIPINO TO WORK FOR THEM...
    What James had done will have a severe effect on our striving economy, instead of generating income specially for tourism, it all had an impact! But this has already been aired...we cannot cry over spilled milk...but the least thing we can do is to BE UNITED to defend our homeland, not to hide it's bad side, but against mockery from some foolish expat who blabbered against our people while still living in our country to make a living...and "ANG HINDI MARUNONG MAGMAHAL SA SARILING WIKA AY HIGIT PA SA MABAHONG ISDA!"
    this saying connotes mainly to love youR own may it be language or culture....and i will not allow some slob with skinny *ss and eats gum for lunch belittle my country...

    wow! iba ibang opinyon tungkol sa salbaheng tao na nagkalat ng video na ito.
    Filipinos,(totoong Pilipino for that matter) I believe are intelligent enough. Hindi tayo basta sensitive na magagalit na lang ng walang dahilan. The reason why we are having these comments is that we are defending our country. Yung iba hindi pero they just prove na hindi sila tunay na Pilipino.

    We are not blind, we know in all honesty na may mali at hindi maganda sa Pilipinas pero may pag asa tayong lahat kung magtutulungan tayo at hindi magsisisihan at maglalayasan sa Pilipinas. Ano ang mangyayari sa ating bansa kund tayong mga Pilipino ay maaapektuhan ng video na ito negatively. Kung ang sasabihin natin ay: tama sya, pangit talaga sa Pilipinas". Ito ay kahibangan. Yes, may mga basura at mga sirang kalsada sa Pilipinas, alam natin itong lahat, ngunit kung tayo naman ay magtutulungan upang maayos ito, may pag asa tayong lahat. Yung ayaw sa Pilipinas, umalis. Ganun lang naman ka-simple lahat, huwag na lang sabihan ng masama ang mahal nating bansa.

    Wake up call daw ito sa atin, salamat. Pero sana nagawa ito ng mas maayos at magandang paraan. Para hindi nakasakit ng damdamin ng mga Pilipino.

    This Jimmy Sicko says he spend over 3 years working here in the Philippines.If he hated it so much, why did he stay so long?? What work was he doing ?? How much salary was he paid ?? How much taxes did he pay?? And I noticed that he smokes.......how many cigarette butts did he throw unto the streets or floors?? How many times did he have sex with the very people he seems to hate so much??
    I short Jimmy Sicko is a loser in his own country,who could not make a living in his own country. The Philippines gladly took him in for 3 years. Instead of showing gratitude, he becomes the *ssh*l* that he was born as. ENJOY HIS VIDEO BECAUSE WE GET TO SEE WHAT A REAL DUMB LOOKING AND ACTING ASSHOLE IS ALL ABOUT!!

Fire them?..dont forget that the issue here is he posted that video...ayone is ntitled of his own opinion but ohe should be responsible too...have you been out of the country? Did you have bad experiences too, does it mean you are going to make a video a let the world know how bad the place is?.....as a filipino that love the country it is just right to protect and defend the country from people who mistreat it including Filipinos itself

      HATE WAR, i am glad you love the philippines probably as much as i do. my points were directed to the filipinos in this discussion who keep on throwing mud at our country.

      With regard to Jimmy, I have reasons to believe that his inappropriate behavior was triggered by bitterness and failures. since most losers do not want to admit their mistakes, he was probably putting the blame on the philippines instead of admitting his mistake.

      To answer your question, YES, I have been to several countries. While it is true I can name at least 21 points against each of these countries, I will not do that because I prefer to focus on the good points of these countries.

      The Philippines is nice and beautiful. The people are nicer and more beautiful.

        True, the people in the Philippines are nicer and more beautiful. People who are really Filipinos at heart, in action. Hindi ang mga nagpapanggap na Pilipino ngunit nasa ibang bansa at niyayakap ang kulturang banyaga. Once they do that they change attitudes, they change their way of life and they forget how to be Filipinos. Even their reasons would change.

        Mabuhay ka, kahit nakarating ka ng maraming bansa, Pilipinas pa din ang gusto mo. Sana lang hindi mo makalimutang tuluyan ang Pilipinas at ang wika.

      @TIGER, saying so many things against a country that accepted you for 3 years is already bad enough. But supporting this person with misplaced gratitude is worse.

      He mentioned Filipinos are lazy, sloppy, irresponsible and many more. Funny, but Filipinos in the middle east are known to be one of the most hardworking, trustworthy and fastest learner people in the world. American and Canadian employers have also positive things to say about Filipinos. Maybe this is the reason why the Filipinos in America are the 2nd highest earners in America, next to the Indians. Also, the BPO industry in the Philippines is fast growing. Why will this industry grow fast if the Philippines has nothing to offer?

      You are right, he should not give and air a sweeping statement agaisnt a country based on personal experience only. this is irresponsible. Lastly, what did he hope to achieve when he aired his video in the internet? By answering this question, we will already know his character.

      MABUHAY KA!!! SANA MARAMI PANG KATULAD MO!!!

    Drivers in the subcontinent, Pakistan, India, and the mideast are the worst. Our cab, bus, jeepney, and truck drivers drive like nuns compared to those crazies. Have to agree with the American's dig about security guards. Many of them are ill-equipped, badly trained, and won't know what to look for. Lastly, many whitening creams are the worst to put on Pinoy skin because of its high-lead content. Besides, what's wrong with having brown skin? Nothing. Only 300 years of Spanish rule said otherwise.

      tigerbutterfly, you present a very good argument. i just hope people will think harder to get your point. meanwhile, allow me to share my points.

      1. focus on the solution, not the problem. people who badmouth another usually do not provide solutions because their minds are so occupied with failures, they cannot step-up to the next level. this is the reason why they remain in identifying problems. people like you can proceed to the next step (solution providing) because you, like some of the positive thinkers here, have a clear mind.

      2, be postive, and avoid people who brings negative thoughts. while it is true there are areas of improvements in our country, we must also remember the good things that are happening in our environment. we cannot think ONLY of the negative things sorrounding us because this will make us move slower. as a result, negative people accomplish very little.

      negative people bring depression. if we are depressed, we cannot be very progressive.

      there should be more people like you.

    20reasons ...if you are clever enough to read the last part of my comment are intelligent enough to know that i do not despise James Sieczka to air his opinion...but the manner is what i detest...yes you are right that we are the ones to blame seeing our country still strives end in the Third World. But all countries have their own muck to clean...This is not about hurt feelings ...This is about the efforts Filipinos do to compete in Tourism which will eventually aid in our country's striving economy...But every good side has a foul backyard and you can't clean it in an instant, can you 2o reasons? Of course i would defend mia patrida adora because what entails my country drags me as a citizen of it. And I know better because i grew up and lived here all my life...Reality is that wherever you go the 20 things that james hates in the philippines are also seen in each and every country...Air your opinion that is your prerogative but air it with thorough justice and in a manner that is constructive and not in a form of mockery...you should watch the video again maybe you missed how he treated those security guards as they are bunch of ignorants that they don't know what they are doing....behind the smile of a filipino is a stab that can cling to your gut if you have crossed the boundaries...kung pilipino ka alam mo yan!

    Tigerbutterfly et al who fancy themselves so clever in defending their Patria Adorada: Why are you making excuses for the Philippines? Why focus on the hurt feelings of your countrymen? Why personally attack a person, who, despite being a foreigner (and this is based on other videos produced by the same company), actually has a Philippine flag tattooed on his right arm to show his love for the country? Why bash a "foreigner" when our country's economy would collapse had not many of us become foreigners ourselves in other shores? Why not focus your energies on being proactive? Just because other countries have the same problems as the Philippines doesn't absolve us from allowing the country and our countrymen to wallow in filth. In the Philippines, it's always a question of degree rather than kind. And the fact that we are so many degrees below our neighbors is not the fault of some random foreigner. For our country's present-day ills, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

    if you have twenty for my country that you don't like, i only got 3 that i detest in you and you as a whole...

    As you give bad comments about my country and putting all our hard work for tourism to waste, i don't think you and your f*ckin' totality are in the right position to say that.
    one is, if my country is all that bad, you wouldn't last a week...but you lasted for 3 and half long years! meaning that despite the bad side of my country our people has treated you well and considering you are an expat...you have other choices but why my country? you could have worked in some taliban country as a butt wiper cause you look like one damned famished desert rat in shades. you showed garbage, holes in the street, pollution in my country as if the PLANET that you came from don't suffer from that as well? i guess it does! and worst! cuz look what your pollution did to you....it made you patronize a sloppy fashion for this video. honestly, you with how you look...your planet seemed to lack enough water to make you look like your washing your nuts regularly...and that shirt only signifies the rubbish you are learning from your homeland! you think you're cool with that shirt? you looked like "f*cking b*llsh*t!"....yeah those words you use for my country describes you more!!! and the hell you talk about SANITATION...you even look like bin laden son that fleas would love sticking to your beard!!! and your sneakers...goodness...it seemed like you are so destitute to buy a real good one....

    second, the hell it is with your damn business if filipinos would like whitening products. at least we try to beautify ourselves...compared to you...you need a sponsor for a good shaving cream the one that will wear off the hair on your face....include that in your nose, you are damn well magnified now that it sucks seeing hair in your nose so visible that i would make one vomit like hell. And i tell you not to mess with our muslim brothers...cuz you might not feel pestered if our vendors would sell you sexual performance enhancer...i tell you, our muslim brothers can cut your d*ck more fast than you neck! traffic laws? why? you are so ignorant about those? most probably in your country oil hasn't been discovered yet...no wonder your skinny legs looked worn out....you travel by foot...poor guy...

    third, do not f*ckin pretend that you are Donald Trump that you know damn well about being a real estate developer. Every construction site has it's manegerial dysfunction! try to move around the world with your skinny *ss you might get a fair observation. YOU are so st*p*d as to why our market place sells meat that way. have you checked where they refrigerate?nawww...you just practically stood in one of the stalls and whine about how we sell food and you can only afford a gum for your lunch! you need alms sh*t ass!
    Public toilets don't have tissue despenser..it goes use your own kinda policy...if you can afford to go to malls and five star hotels then you have the liberty to have a roll of tissue to wipe you skinny ass....then you go about our "shitty drivers"....every country has one...well i suppose your planet doesn't cuz you have to walk by foot...and so what the hell if our security guards smile...is this some sorta military set that every single soldier has to project a tiger-look.. Filipinos are cordial and our culture suggests all smiles even if our work is damn so hard...and why would you ask for training during breaktime...anyone can smoke, eat or FART during breaktime.
    ANYWAYS...I DO NOT WANT TO WASTE MORE OF MY PRECIOUS TIME TO SUCH A DICK HEAD NO BRAIN BLABBER LIKE YOU JIMMY SIECZKA....YOU ARE NOTHING AND IN NO POSITION TO PUT MOCKERY ON MY COUNTRY...IT IS FAIR TO HAVE YOUR OBSERVATION, EVERYBODY HAS A RIGHT FOR AN OPINION...BUT DOING IT WITHOUT THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AS TO WHY YOUR OBSERVATIONS OCCUR TO YOU THAT WAY...THAT IS JUST SHOWING YOU ARE ONE FUCKED RACIST!!!
    SO GO BACK TO YOUR PLANET, TAKE YOUR RUBBISH WITH YOU AND NEVER RETURN TO MY COUNTRY IF IT PISSES YOU THAT MUCH...CUZ YOU ARE JUST A POLLUTANT IN MY COUNTRY...

Remember what happened to actress Claire Danes? She was disciplined by our very own President when she made that st*p*d and nonsense commentary about Manila. Her words were, it "smelled of cockroaches, with rats all over, and that there is no sewerage system, and the people do not have anything - no arms, no legs, no eyes." Racist b*tch! I was very happy that she got punished for it. She apologized all over the world and lost her career big time!

    TO JIMMY: YOU'RE JUST A FUCKING ANNOYING WHITE THRASH.. YOU MUST BE SO HAPPY THAT YOU BROUGHT THOUSANDS OF HITS TO CHANNELFIX AND THEY'LL PROBABLY GIVE YOU YOUR PROMOTION MONEY AFTER ALL. FUCK YOU!

  • Ano ba ginawa mo
    paflores, responsibilidad mo ring mag-ayos ng bahay kung may bisita di ba? Bakit pag si Lourd ang pumupuna, ang sinasabi nyo, "idol ka talaga Lourd!" o "Tama ka Lourd!". Ito, porket westerner ang nagsabi, racist na? Kayo ba ni-minsan di nag-criticize tungkol sa ibang bansa? Sa pagiging talangka na nga lang nating lahat, kahit tayo masamang kritiko sa sarili nating bansa. "Nu ba yan...[insert reklamo"

    Nasa Cebu pa ba yung Kanong nasa video? Ako ganito ang stand ko. Kung ako may bisitang tinanggap sa bahay ko at magrereklamo sa harap ko habang nasa loob ng pamamahay ko ay palalayasin ko agad agad. Tama man yun mga sinasabi nya pero tama bang pagsabihan mo ang nagmamay ari ng bahay na bisita ka lang? Kahit nga halimbawang nakalabas ka na ng bahay dapat mo bang ipagsabi ang mga nakita mo sa bahay na iyon na tumanggap sa iyo? Respeto na lang, wag na natin pagusapan yun nakita nating mali, bahay nila yun e. Sino ka ba? Diba?

    I think he's right. Everything he showed in the video are true. Filipinos are good but their place are not so good. Maybe it's time for them to change thew whole country and improve it. It can be hurtful but we have to realize that we have to change for improvement and pride of the country

    Hey, may be it's about time all Filipinos write or say something about what we dislike in our country to start accepting that we need to do something about it. We may not like how he said things, but what this guys expressed are true. We've been so used to accepting the things we dont like about the Philippines that we all end up not doing anything about it. A case of collective apathy.

    we pinoys just want to hear the good things about us and when we are criticized about our stinky side, we get resentful. Pinas may not be the only country that has same problems, but why compare ourselves to others worse than us? so our stinky side gets covered up with those others' garbage? why not compare ourselves to others better than us and use them as our examples? let's step on our pride and help our country move towards a better future.

    Everybody has the right to have his own opinion about a country but how can a guy who only spent 3 years and a half in a country can say that he has "experienced ALL the beauty and wonders that this country has to offer". There is more than 7000 islands in the Philippines and all are differents. His opinion is just based on materialistic issues. Of course there is uncovered holes, trafic, polution, but who can name any country which don't have those negative points. People are so eager to always criticize the same things about the Philippines that they never try to look further. Moreover, that video is not even funny so, pointless.

    i admire this expat for being honest and truthful. being a filipino myself, i have been calling not only the government leaders but the filipino people as well start organizing and instill strong discipline to participate in a collective environmental protection, cleanliness and hygene, and all. we have laws but never abide. we have guides but never follow. we have everything in our land, simply move, join and bring back the old glory of our land.

    There's nothing he said that isn't true. Those who get defensive and onion skinned should learn to listen to others' opinions. The truth, however painful, can be instructive.

    Puro akong Pinoy. Nagbabayad ako ng buwis, at mahal ko ang Pilipinas pero hindi ko magawang ma-offend sa video na ito.Totoo naman kasi ang lahat ng binanggit ni Mr. Jimmy Sieczka. In fact, saludo ako sa tapang ng taong ito. Hindi sya tanga; I think aware sya kung gaano tayo ka balat sibuyas pagdating sa mga bagay na ganito.

    It was funny. I was laughing my *ss off while watching it. Para ka lang nanood sa comedy bar kung saan laitan din ang siste. Ang pagkakaiba lang ay dayuhan ang gumawa. Sana wag tayong ma-pikon. Nakatira ako sa Maynila at bago pa dito sa prubinsya. Malinis ang lugar kung saan ako nanggaling, pero dito sa Maynila--araw-araw akong nakikipag-tunggali sa siyudad na ito. Madumi, mabaho, mainit, delikado, napapaligiran ng kahirapan. . . Naiinis rin ako sa siyudad na ito. Hindi araw-araw pero madalas. But that doesn't mean that I don't call it home and would still pick it over the nice sea-side town where I grew up in. Wag nating persunalin. Makakatulong sa atin ang mga makakatotohanang pahayag na tulad nito. Hindi 'yung mga ebak na napupulot natin sa mga mainstream channels natin kung saan distorted ang reality. Eto ang totoong Pilipinas. Now let's stop the hate and DEAL WITH IT. 'Yun lang po.

  • arogante ko
    Reason why we Filipinos (or let me say SOME OF US) won't progress:

    WE DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT REALITY.. WE ALWAYS RATIONALIZE IF SOMEONE'S TELLING THE TRUTH ON OUR WEAKNESSES. WE GIVE ALL THE REASONS AND TRY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT NOTHING'S WRONG WITH US.. DUDE!! THAT GUY'S TELLING THE TRUTH.. LIVE WITH IT.. I'M A FILIPINO, AND I TOTALLY AGREE WITH HIM.. WE KEEP ON COMPLAINING THAT LIFE'S DIFFICULT IN THE PHILIPPINES. TRUE, THAT'S BECAUSE OF OUR ARROGANCE..

    Yes, most of the things he mentioned in the video are true. But it's a no-win situation with this guy. He is obviously a racist, whiny *ssh*l* who wouldn't be happy anywhere in the world he goes ... I think in this instance, it has less to do with the Philippines, more to do with him being a f*cking jerk who likes to nit-pick on every little thing he obviously has the freedom and the power to fix. Yes, it's very easy for you to say "no plastic bag, please".

    This guy is an idiot. If it was so bad why did he stay three fricking years!? I guess he has never heard the saying 'When in Rome do as the Romans do." It is a poor country, they do the best they can. He did give some really good information for visiting the country that I will remember when I visit. Carry your own toilet paper,wet wipes and hand sanitizer with you. And lastly most countries outside the U.S. don't have as much refrigeration. Deal with it or stay home. And yea, make sure the girls are really girls. l.o.l. You gotta do that in almost any big city these days:)

    hmmm...20 reasons why I dislike the Philippines and 20 reasons why I love the Philippines? bakit gagawa lang ng video two sides pa ang ipinakikita. The negative and the positive. What are these people trying to prove? I can see one idea, that is, if there are reasons why you love the Philippine there are also reasons why you hate it, right? This is a reality. But a true Filipino knows what between the two must be magnified, the reasons to love or reasons to hate.
