biyernes busyness

Kahapon pa maraming trabaho (that's why absent ko dito kahapon). 4pm na ako nag-lunch kahapon:

Then I went to Church around 7pm. Pati ang homily e tungkol sa work, particularly about not accepting bribes. And sobrang timing naman sa nabasa ko sa this morning:

RP on top 10 list of petty bribery

BERLIN -- One in every four people has been asked to pay a bribe to the police, and political parties and parliaments are the most tainted by corruption, a Transparency International study released on Thursday shows.

The poor are targeted for bribes in both developed and developing countries, according to the watchdog’s Global Corruption Barometer 2007.

The study found that the countries with the highest level of petty bribery, with 30 percent of respondents reporting paying bribes, were Albania, Cambodia, Cameroon, Macedonia, Kosovo, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Romania and Senegal.

By region, Africa experiences the most demands for bribes, the study found. Transparency polled more than 63,000 people in 60 countries between June and September 2007.

The Berlin-based organization also produces an annual ranking of countries perceived to be the most corrupt.
