If you're Chinese or have an East Asian face, don't go to the Philippines. Majority of Filipinos are racist especially towards Chinese people. I haven't experienced it yet (maybe because I'm mixed race) but my mom (who is a full blooded Chinese) and some of her peers experienced it already.
They want us to "leave" their country when in fact, the Chinese community is creating jobs for them. <sigh>
By the way... if you are an Aussie and you're looking for a coffee machine repair shop or planning to buy refurbished coffee machines, pls don't hesitate to DM me. I can negotiate to give you a discount. ;) We mostly service delonghi, breville, saeco or sunbeam machines. Shop is in NSW. If you're out of state, we can email you Aus Post shipping label (free of charge). We also sell coffee beans. ($39 per bag).
