    So envious of how people can walk freely in Seoul…Sana someday ganyan din dito sa Manila, although there were few out there who have hearts to return things they’ve found…

    I want to call it mind setting. Before the CCTV was used publicly in South Korea, I guess there a lot of issues concerning all kinds of criminality. But when it was installed on almost all places, save your bedroom if you’re lucky, Seoulites were transformed to a robotic estate. Unforgiving of my comment you could be, but come to ponder a little bit. Would you in your right mind take something that doesn’t belong to you for everybody to see, much more of your knowledge that a CCTV is lurking beneath your head? They were aware of the CCTV’s so, why bother taking it? On the other hand, reporting lost items to ‘Lost and Found’ is commendable. I wish the Philippines will follow suit.

      I think it has more to do with economy and even without that experiment people tend to return things here. Sometimes they would even go out of their way to reach you.

      Probably not universally true, I’ve lived here for decades and long before CCTVs became popular, it has been a norm for shops to display their goods unmanned outside their shops, just a few inches away from the road. And guess what? Even kids will get their favorite junk food fix or toys and head inside the shop paying for their goods – sans cameras. It’s just how they are. It is commendable how inherently honest they are even without others watching them.

  3. nakakainggit naman. dito sa amin, mahirap baguhin ugali ng kasambahay namin na hindi naman siguro kinalakihan kundi malakas ang policy o paniniwala sa “finders keepers”. aniya nila hindi daw yun iiwanan ng basta kung mahalaga ang bagay na yun sa may ari haaaay talaga
