DARNA-Anti-OFW ?

This is what I have in mind right now....

Chatting through internet between Overseas Filipino Workers and their families back home has become the cheapest and easy tool to combat homesickness. Old folks who have been here in abroad way ahead of us, talked about their dilemma during the early days. Letters took month to get replies that’s why they used to send more than five letters in one sending without waiting for reply. Writing letters had been the common past time of OFWs back then.

Also, they made once a month long distance call to the Philippines since it was extremely expensive, unlike these days where they are just few peso away from each other, wherever and whenever. Communication and staying connected with our families back home is top of the list in OFWs daily life, this helps us prevent experiences of overseas workers in the past, where attentions were diverted.

Today, we have email, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, Skype, MSN, Chikka and many more. Even as our company IT personnel will block these chat machines, we still find ways to get connected through chatting and video talk.

Recently, Astig Pinoys in Iraq were complaining about KBR in Camp Taji blocking their YM and Chikka, but still they found ways and manage to re-connect by themselves (pinoy talents talaga!) and other through soft-hearted IT guys. Staying connected with our families back home improves our performances, unless one will abuse the use of internet during working hours. I could say it is indispensible part of us to be able to overcome fear and loneliness here in abroad. It makes us less worry as we could monitor them all the times and we could even help the kids do their homework, or guide our spouse what is missing in her cooking.

The worse part of working abroad is having no peace of mind. Knowing what’s happening around our dear family back home is important and makes us inspired, which in return boosts up our quality work output. Doing away on this perspective and you are becoming anti-OFWs, as you are putting back the loneliness in our working consoles and it will have a "domino effect" to our decision to better be home and stay happy, which is actually sad ending.

BUT HERE IS THE THING!

These few weeks, as I observe, and it has been a discussion among my peers in the internet that something is eating up our chance to have time with our families online. And even among us OFWs, they don’t have time in the evening for important discussions through chatting, as they have something else focusing on.

It is getting my family’s time for me and makes me feel ignored, as if it is far more important than me. My friends complained the same thing, the same experience and they feel lonely during this time, and homesickness starts to envelope the entire surrounding waiting for them to come back in front of the webcam.

The top rated DARNA is becoming my wife’s "paramour" (lol!) during our chatting hours, even my kids can’t stay longer when the programs starts, they would hang me up until it is done airing. What is with Darna that we OFWs don’t have? Marianne Rivera’s oh-lalah body? Yeah I guess the ever-exciting run of events and suspended climax. Damn! Why GMA7 did not think about putting up a cable TV subscription here in Afghanistan.

Well, I really like Marianne when she hip-rolled in Marimar! Hehehehe! That’s why today, to get even with them, I subscribed to www.noypi-unlimited.com to see Darna.

The next time I face the webcam, I will be in my new two-piece Darna costume too, to get my family back!

Twag nyo po ako? lolzz , eto saluhin mo!!!Wag mo isubo ang bato at may ebak hehehe ...

Hayaan na natin sila pre, ilang minutong masaya silang manuod eh dapat masaya na rin tayo, hanap ka na lang ng ibang oras sa pagcha chat at wag mo sabayan si Darna :D

A-Z-E-L said...

hahahahaha!
can't wait to see you with that costume!

typical filipino lang... masyadong adik sa telenovelas & drama-rama. atleast other than being hooked with those, wala na silang ibang pinagkakaabalahan. mahirap kung sa mahjong o sabong na-addict... baka umuwi ka na sa pinas nun! hehehehe!

ok lng yan.. sabay nyo nang panoorin... mas masaya ang kwentuhan siguro!

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

parang gusto kong maging kotra-bida ni Darna para lagi ko syang nakikita sa sexy nyang costumes....hehehe

Bhing said...

hndi ako mahilig sa telenovela kht pa nun nasa Pinas n ako...gudthing may way ka para maka sabay sa knila...

bakit puro GMA d2??? umapela tlga ako...

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

hehehe! bing maka-GMA7 talaga ako..Kapusong totoo!

Pero Bigatin member ako ng TFC, may ID pa ako..kasi nung nasa Saudi ako madaling magpakabit ng TFC... saka mura ang installation kahit anim na channel lang.

Sa GMA, under ng Orbit, napakaraming channel kaso medyo mabigat ang installation requirements.

Thanks for dropping by, Bhing...

Sexy ni Marianne 'no..pag uwi ko aagawin ko yan kay Dingdong hahahaha!

RUEL said...

OIC..Akala ko kung ano na namang issue meron laban sa OFW..

Darna is fantastic..I am not saying that addict ako, pero gusto ko talagang panoorin ang darna kahit paulit-ulit..it's not because i worship Marian but natutuwa lang talaga akong tingnan siya tuwing lumulunok ng bato..hehe

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

thanks Ruel for dropping by.
Sabi nung brod ko sa Iraq, si Darna raw ang super hero na adik....kasi nagbabato at si Ding pa ang runner hehehe!

The funny thing, ang trip ni Darna pag naka-bato ay mag-two piece at maghanap ng away...salot talaga ang bato, pati mga superheroes na biktima na! hehehehe!

The Pope said...

Wow sobra haba ng pila para makakuha ng bato ni Darna, hmmm, mukhang batong panghilod na lang ang aabutan ko.

Mula nuon magpasa hanggang ngaun, tinatangkilik pa rin ang Darna, isang pagpapatunay na ang teleseryeng Darna ay patok sa panlasang Pinoy dahil ito ay orihinal na likhang Pinoy.

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

Totoo yan, Pope.

May nabasa akong blog thru GMA7, na inilahad nya ang history ni Darna. si Gina Pareño pala ay nag-Darna rin. A certain Rosa del Rosario yata yun ang unang Darna in 1951. According to the blog yang gamit ni Marianne ang closed sa original costume ng unang Darna at base sa orignal na Komiks ni Mars Ravelo...

Kaso yung mga ibang version ni Darna in the 80's nag mukha raw clone sya ni Wonder Woman dahil sa pagbabago ng costumes pati yung power to deflect bullets, which was really bad kasi sariling atin si Darna na may sariling abilidad at power.

Thanks for visting my blog Pope.

wait said...

i think Marian is the most beautiful Darna Ever.... : )

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

I agree, Wait. Sexy 'no.. pati ang face...ang ganda!
