Does your attitude change over time about the Philippines?

When you first arrive in the Philippines everything is shiny in new. To the point you may even argue with people who have been there a long-time. This is often where people go wrong when they first arrive as they put their opinions above other people’s realities. If someone has been there a long-time it is worth taking onboard their advice. It doesn’t mean you have to follow it but often it is worth listening to it.
