Feeling the economic breakdown
27-Jan-2009 12:16 AM
Since the US credit crunch the Philippines don't really feel the cracking effect of it.
But that's one month ago, the after shock of the shake has just reach the Pilipino pockets.
Going abroad and work as an OFW is only for the brave one. Why? Imagine paying the placement fee of P50,000 to P100,000 for a job abroad for a 2 years contract, after one month you'll wake up and your employer says go home we don't have any job order.
Nobody is immune to the financial tsunami.
What is the good news anyway?
At least you will have lots time for your family.
Just don't mind if your kids want to eat at the local mall and want the latest cellphone.
At the other side of the coin (the political side)
You will notice, while watching the Philippine TV that the presidential volcano is about to erupt. Who will be the presidential winner? Maybe it's too early to say, but the air is politically ripe. It's easy to spot who want to become the president, its called media mileage. The one that has it is most likely to win. So what the easy way to do it?
Special events like donating to a charity
Popularity is the game.
Talk about popularity.
I have talk to a scholar who happens to be a government scholar but did not know they are a government scholar.
Here at antipolo city student at the SPI (Skill-Power Institute) students pay only half of there monthly tuition fee without knowing that the GMA government thru Tesda is paying the half fee. Sad to say this student is ignorance of who is helping them in there studies. If the students don't know it, how about there parents?
Coins of the peso
Also at this school I notice that there are adult students.
Most of them are enrolled and studying to become a care giver.
Every year we have new care giver graduates, but there talents will not be for the Pilipino elderly. They are studying to become a care giver for a foreign country.
