We’ve been living in our neighborhood for almost 3 years now. We really like our neighborhood and our surroundings. It’s really new that during night time its so quiet and peaceful. We hardly hear any blowing of car horn and tricycles. We really like it here a lot. It also is convenient for our kids to go to school, just a walking distance. When we first moved in here, right across the street living was the classmate of my youngest son Jared. They lived in the neighborhood for a long time. But just few months after we moved in they are moving out. They moved in to our old neighborhood to be near to their business. They lived there just across the street where we used to live.
The place that they left behind on our new neighborhood had been empty for a long time, until early this year. In that lot it sits 4 houses with I think one bedroom, bathroom and kitchen in every house. Really its like a compound. So I guess the new renter rented the whole compound and he rented out each houses individually. And one of the houses was rented to the workers of S & R wholesale store ( sister company of Costco in the States). These workers were kind of rude and rowdy. Well what do we expect with the drunkards people. They just don’t have the instinct to think that they have to be quiet during middle of the night. They’ve been loud almost every night. We are so looking forward when the S & R will be done and open. Hopefully these workers will be out of our neighborhood in no time. Just by listening to these workers they are not from here locally. I think they are from Luzon. I don’t think they will stay here for a long time. I think they just work here by contract term.
One thing they used to do was hanging out on our front yard sitting on the concrete near the gate. We don’t really like it because sometimes they left their garbage there. So just to avoid confrontation I put my thorny plants there for them to know not to sit there. Once in awhile I saw them sitting on some part of the yard. I will have to plant some more thorny plants again to occupy the whole concrete in our front yard.
When they first arrived on that house, boy they were so loud. They always had karaoke and drinking almost every night. Few weeks after them moving in I noticed that they were not so loud anymore and they are not staying that much outside. I had a feeling that they were told by our other neighbor to be quiet. See the house just across from us the owner, he is a lawyer. I’m not sure if those new neighbors were told to tone down a bit because here in Davao you could get in trouble with being noisy past the wee hour of the night. That was just my hunch since all of a sudden the karaoke was stopped. If they were told by our other neighbor, I’m so happy for that. Really I think they know that our other neighbor just don’t put up with their BS. Most of our neighbors here were lawyers and judge. I’m just glad that I don’t have to tell these annoying neighbor what I think. Somebody already told them what we think of them.
How’s your neighbor? Feel free to share your experience with your neighbor!
