Last June 16, I've read an article from the arabnews.com which is entitled, "Imagine a world without Filipinos". While reading the article, I was so amazed on the words the writer used to describe the attitude of my fellow Filipino workers. The sentence, "They are known for their professionalism and the quality of their work.", made me realized so many things.
If Filipinos are considered good workers in other countries, why is it that Philippines is still a poor country where in fact there are 80 million more Filipinos there? Does this tells us that people running the Philippine government are non-professionals that they failed to uplift the lives of the Filipinos?
If OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) are really considered as heroes, why is it that OFWs are so afraid in facing those thieves in the Philippines? Stop this illusion. I am an OFW and we are not heroes. We just work abroad for our families and not for our country. So we are not heroes at all. That's it.
The arabnews.com's article is a wake up call for OFWs to realize that we, Filipinos, have the ability to clean the Philippines and improve our lives. We don't want to be forever exploited by many countries. We have to do something so we can go home and serve our countrymen. Let's prove to the world that we can change our country and Filipino image.

November 2008 US election is just five months away and people around the globe are excited to know who will be the next most powerful man in the world. Although non-US citizens do not have the power to choose, they are still concerned of the result of the election since the world is being controlled by the US.
But if I have to choose between Obama and McCain to become the new US president, I would definitely choose Obama simply because I don't like war. Republicans are now known to be pro-war as what the Bush family has shown to the world. They failed to address the very essential need of the people of Iraq and the rest of the world which is PEACE.
Now, it's time for a change for the betterment of mankind. This change can only be realized if the Americans will elect Obama. I go for Obama because I believe that the world needs Obama.
