Like I said before, in many countries, ALL people have rights, but not here and not in most third world countries. The laws are just not meant to be fair, for anyone, let alone foreigners.
There are times when it it really hard not to speak up, like when a neighbor loves loud karaoke, or brings roosters home, or takes the muffler off of their motorcycle, or blasts large fire crackers all night and into the next day RIGHT next to your house..... But always remember, foreigners live at the whim of Filipinos. The phony congeniality the Philippines is known for last only so long. You will see how fast Filipinos will turn on you if you start to complain about anything.
