But first, I personally do wish for an immigration system upgrade. Being on queue for one hour just to get my passport stamped is a serious waste of time.

Having an IC-embedded passport is useless ... the immigration agents still type in every letter into their systems. WTF?

As a Fil-Am who has flown from both Narita and Kansai to Manila a few times, Ninoy 1 & 2 are probably the hands-down worst international airport terminals in Asia. I wouldn't mind paying the stupid airport tax the Philippine government extorts from both tourists and Philippine citizens if it did any good to improving the services there.

Actually amongst the worst in the world. Problem is that the government will earmark huge amounts of money for the upgrade projects, but half of it will disappear in the pockets of corrupt officials. No matter how many structural upgrades they make on terminal 3, it's not gonna make any difference.

The meeting area is a congested chaos, where people have to jump and squint in an attempt to find someone who's forced to stand on the other side of the road. Not to mention the whole area is a security nightmare...I even got into the terminal without any proper bag check....a terrorist could easily get in there and raise hell whenever he saw fit (and believe me; both the NPA and MILF enjoy doing that on a regular basis in these parts).

By the way, when I say "corrupt officials", a big death-stare goes out to the entire Arroyo-administration.
