    1. Being a foreigner,and having visited the Philippines on at least sixteen occasions,and stayed at many different hotels,Baguio,Davao,Palawan,Cebu,Biliran,and not forgetting Manila to say the least.never ever had I suffered from food poisoning.But ,sadly to say ask me if I have at restuarants,the answer is a resounding ,Yes.Health and safety is something lacking and is something that needs tightening up,these restuarants needs regular inspections,and needs a system put in place whereby,a points or star award is given according to its cleaniness, hygene,presentation,and quality of its food.Shame and name is the order of the day for those failing to come up to certain standard.
