It seems like we never truly learn, do we?
Just a few hours into Boracay’s 10-day test run, garbage can already be seen littering the newly rehabbed island’s beachfront as shared by netizen Cherie Mercado.
Few hours after the dry run started for the reopening of Bora, a resident took pictures of plastics back in the beach front 😡Seryoso ba kayo? It’ll take two weeks to make it dirty once again! 🤦♀️
The disappointing display opened up talks about the concept of discipline among Filipinos.
Most Filipinos just can't and will never learn the word "Discipline". Kahit anong effort ng government, kung walang pakielam ang mga tao, wala talaga. Kung napuputulan siguro ng kamay yung hindi marunong magtapon ng basura, baka ang linis ng mundo.

How can our country be better if the people living in it doesn't know how to take care of it? It's not about who's the president or governor that can make things better, throwing our garbage at the trash bin is a simple rule that can make a difference!

Ang isang tao na ugaling iskwater kahit patirahin mo sa mansion, ilang linggo lang magiging barung-barong na yung mansion. Discipline starts from within. Ang masakit nyan pag lumaon sa gobyerno na naman ang sisi.

On the upside, there are garbage bags situated throughout the island…
For the love of god, use them.
