The ratings war, which is your favourite Philippines TV channel?

1 post in this topic


As tried and seasoned expat veterans (or newcomers) in the land of balut, songs and smiles, which is your favourite Phils TV channel di ba ?

ABS-CBN or GMA ? Who do you back in the exciting ratings war ?

Here in Oman, my wife is definitely ABS-CBN. Mind you, that's the channel used by TFC (the Filipino Channel - Phils overseas tv). But she prefers it anyway over GMA.

Indeed why not, I just love trying to sleep at 2 in the morning while some loud variety show pumps out badly sung amateur karaoke for a prize of shampoo bottles.

I should add that my wife likes to sleep with background noise, something to do with being brought up in Pasay, MM I guess. Me ? I'm a townie from Scotland who is more used to tranquil sounds at night, like my own snoring for instance !

    • Best Place to Live in the Philippines

      Yeah, the traffic is horrendous. I work in Makati. Quite a few of my workmates spend up to 4 hours a day sitting in their car just commuting, and they don't really live that far away. I solved that problem by renting a condo directly across the road from my office. ( And directly above the bar that we frequently visit after office hours )

      I find if you can't speak to strangers in South East Asia then well you really are shy/introverted to the extreme.You certainly do not need a a 2yr old. You probably could have a limb sticking out of your head and still have success.

      In spite of the debilitating heat this week, I decided to go for a long walk with my son today. One of the things I really like is how easy it is here to strike up conversations with complete strangers. Obviously having a cute two year old with me makes that even easier.
    • Only muslims are allowed to say the word "Allah" according to the Malaysian court

      Church asked to take down its cross because worried that young Muslim may get influenced and convert to Christian.   I suggest that that all religion other than Islam being banned in this country. Once and for all solve the problem.
