If we have to based the unemployment rate from 2008 to 2009 in the Philippines, we will noticed that it increased from 7.30% to 7.40%. There are many college graduates in the Philippines yet the job opportunities cannot support all the graduates. Some of them look for a job even it is not related to their profession.

One day, I was walking along Ortigas and I found a group of people who were walking with a billboard behind their back(video). I was wondering what was they're doing and why do they have to do that. First came to my mind is that they were just punished by someone  or maybe it is one of the initiation of the aspirants to be a member of a fraternity. But what I thought is wrong. More days had come, I still noticed the people that I was talking about. They still exist in the streets together with their billboards. Until I became aware that it was their job. Their job is to walk around the city just to endorse a certain product. Then I realize that it was a good idea. Idea to lessen the number of unemployment. Well, it is also advantage to the owner of the product because they will get the attention of the people they were passing because it is a unique style of endorsing.

We don't know what profession they have. Maybe some of them graduated from colleges. Or maybe some of them came from a prestigious universities. But look at they now, they were walking around the streets with the billboards. It is not their profession, they did not enter college to end a job like that but what they can do? The job opportunities in our country is very low. They need a source of income to live and support their family. Whatever their professions, they must also be thankful of what they have right now. We must also be proud of them because they swallowed their pride for that job even they handled a profession that was not suitable for what they have right now.

"Love your Job and be thankful of having it. It is not easy to look for a job at this time."

A great Experience

It was a great experience for me last week. It was my first time to drive a vehicle in Metro Manila. Generally, it was not my first to drive a vehicle for I am already driving in our province, particularly in Davao City. But this time, it is very different.

From that, I learned a lot.First, I find it hard to use a manual transmission kind of vehicle because I used to drove an automatic. I must learn to balance the clutching and the gasoline steps. Second, the traffic I encountered was heavy compared to our province. Additional adjustments for me again for the clutching. The last and the third which almost got the attention of MMDA was the warning signs and symbols from the road. There was so many things to be caution with; the yellow lines (provided only for the public vehicles), the traffic lights, the no entry or one way signs, and the fast, medium and slow lanes.

Because I learned a lot from those experiences, of course there was also problems that I encountered. First, I almost bump the car behind us because I cannot control the clutching well (we are going up to the fly over that time and it was so traffic).  Second, when we were passing through the C5, I happened to used the fast lane and I was trying to move to a slow lane but I find it difficult because there were so many vehicles that were so fast along the road. One van attempted to overtake us which almost hit our vehicle (weow! I got nervous at that time and became more cautious in our way). Third, we got the attention of a traffic enforcer because we entered the lane even the traffic light is already red (stop). Lastly, we entered a counter flow.

Our great experience had a great learnings. Fortunately, we did not caught by the traffic enforcer. I hope the second time will not be as great as these. I must be more cautious everytime I drive and always think that life is very important.

"Life is very important so don't ever try to waste it. And there's a lot of people around who loves you. When driving, be cautious."

Wonder Girls - Nobody

Last Saturday, I witnessed a talent audition at waltermart in Munoz. One thing I observed in the program was among all the participants, maybe 50% of them danced the popular song Nobody by Wonder Girls. I come to think that many of them like the song where in fact they did not understand the song at all because  it is in korean version. Therefore, I searched from the web if there is an english version available of the song in order for me to post here for them to have knowledge of the lyrics of what they are listening.

 Wonder Girls - Nobody ( english version)

You know i still love you baby
and it will never change

I want nobody nobody but you
I want nobody nobody but you

How can I be with  another,
I dont want any other

I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

Why you try to,
to make me leave you

i know what you're thinking
baby why aren't you listening

how can i just
just love someone else

forget you completely
when i know you still love me

Telling me you're not good enough
my life with you is just too tough

you know its not right so
just stop and come back boy

how can this be when
we were meant to be

I want nobody nobody but you
I want nobody nobody but you

How can I be with  another,
I dont want any other

I want nobody nobody nobody nobody

I want nobody nobody but you
I want nobody nobody but you

A message from ONDOY!

If Ondoy have the mouth to speak, what will be its message?

Dear people (victims),

People had suffered a lot because of me. There's a lot of people died and some brought to the hospitals for a serious injury. I destroyed a lot of houses because of flood.

I would like to apologize of what I did to your country. I am sorry for bringing problems. I am sorry for the life that had been taken. I am sorry for the flood. I am sorry for everything.

I don't have the intention to do that. I have no choice. This is my obligations and I cannot control my self where will I be going. I am created simply as a typhoon. I am not created to destroy lives and surroundings.

This is me. A creation of God, just like you. We were created by Him and only Him have the right to take us from this world of living.

Again, I am very very sorry for everything. Things might change, time will pass, but the tragedy I made will always remain in your heart.

I hope you will forgive me.

Bagyong Ondoy left the Philippines but the damage still remains. It is unforgettable experience to our fellow Filipinos who suffered for the unmerciful typhoon. We witnessed how the filipino helped the victims without any doubt but we cannot deny that other just helped for their personal intentions;for political popularity especially national elections is very near.

Whatever may be their intentions, they also deserve to thank them because at least they shared something even they don't have the intention to help.
