Best to make up with neighbors and get over it because I have found that holding grudges and adding more rules just makes things worse, both parties over-reacted so next time you have a large party or create one.... have the spouse invite them over eat and drink and get over it and make buddy-buddy it's no fun living with that sort of situation festering after all the neighbors do look after one another.

Reason I love living here is just how friendly neighbors can be and how easy it is to get a party and conversation going, this was a rare event in the US, neighbors keep to themselves, no talking, alway's working and way to private.

I've made some neighborhood mistakes here but the wife fixed for me and I'm glade she did or I would have started to be to private.... BOooo no way to live, neighbors are not perfect either and so they accept that we make mistakes, so we move on and a good thing.

my 2 cents ? Emotionally enraged filipinos have no qualms killing anybody, screw the repercussions ..

So, my advice: take it serious, avoid them .. and don't even try to negotiate .. even negotiations can lead to misunderstandings and fights..

Just an example on how emotionally enraged they can become : in Singapore, years ago, when there was a little commotion among the filipino crowd, a foreigner barged in and tried to defend the pride of his Filipina GF - he said something like "don't imply all pinays are hookers .."

What was heard was "All pinays are hookers .. "

it only took a few minutes for a few broken glasses, broken bottles, bloodied faces .. and cops arresting the whole bunch that had nothing to do with the core issue .. problem starter ..

And this is despite all knowing very clearly and being reminded by the bar owner that rioting / fighting = jail + possible caning in Singapore .. still that didn't stop them from barging in and getting themselves locked up ..

and the non-filipino guy who apparently triggered the blood-shed ? he was not charged .. and he walked scot free ..
