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


After few days, less than a week I guess, all tensions had subsided and it seems like everything is back to normal, hopefully. It looks like nothing had happened while bleeding hearts and insulted dignity are the only evidences left, obviously everyone is sharing the same feelings until now.

This war is shorter than the Six-Day Arab-Israeli war in 1967 after its declaration to engage in the act of blog war against a single enemy but with a reckless and dangerous mind. In the name of peace, the supposed blog war was put to a sudden stop before the first shot was even fired. As I understand, there was actually no peace pact achieved or a formal ceasefire declared but only withdrawal of forces back into the jungle, and for sure his crooked ideology still remain. Is it a stalemate? I'm thinking who will wave the white flag first?

"As he hurt too many of our kind around world and he never even care to say SORRY even to only few, he is still at war in the area of Afghanistan and some areas of Iraq. In my opinion, there is a mistake in giving forgiveness so easily without clear term of "surrender" from this enemy. It may send a wrong signal to others of his kind. A manifestation of apology must be posted "- bizjoker

His psy-war operation is to weak. (or is he?) We should have engaged him first in "fierce fight" to show our might and let him cry for ceasefire, after all he's the one started all of this mess. We should have let him ASK for a talk for HIS surrender option before we offer it. Arrogant as he is, he did not even bother to mention about his intention to apologize, so he is not worthy of forgiveness. Otherwise this thing will be repeated again and again.

In his PEACE entry, in the Bilang panghuli paragraph he mentioned about him being not afraid of any legal responsibility since he believes it will never be accepted in court as a legal issue, which only shows his gross ignorance of the law and all the legal processes. Ironically, in this entry, is he really humbly offering a peace?

I would say ,"Yes sir, a class suit can be filed against you for your baseless and libelous entry and don't be so stupid to say that the judge will drop the case for it will hold no water before the court. The National Beaureu of Investigation recently filed a libel case and other cyber crimes against blogger Crazytolits before the Department of Justice. Crazytolits has been so ellusive that not even a single trace of his real identity can be found in his blog page, but the NBI agents are just smart enough to apprehend the real guy red handed. Crazytolits is way far intelligent than the you are, but not to the rule of law, how much more a specie like you. Bisitahin mo ang site niya nang malaman mo sino ang kinakalaban n'ya. He stopped posting entries as of June... for obvious reason."

Another point, PEBA has recently earned its SEC registration therefore making it a juridical entity with rigths duly recognized by law. As it protects and promotes Filipino bloggers' talents, I guess, it impliedly protects also the Filipino bloggers' welfares for being bloggers themselves. PEBA has the locus standi so why wave the white flag first? Correct me if I'm wrong at this point.

I have now a lots of "what ifs".
What if next time it will be the house of PEBA that will be directly under attack by this kind of specie of blogger? What course of action will be taken and how? What if he is just to hard to move and he will keep his libelous post? What if he will keep on insulting most of us, not in anybody's chat box but in his own webpage where he has all the advantages? What if this thing is repeated again by someone of the same specie? What if he strikes again but this time not against OFW but just against one of us? What if he just simply ignore our wishful thinking and go on with his stupidity around the blogosphere?

We need to protect the house and make it stronger in order it can protect us as well. I am not suggesting a class suit be filed immediately as there are hundred ways to kill a cat (kasabihan lang ha). If this will be repeated, we can boycott his blog, block him from our chatboxes, and promote a shame campaign until his inbox gets flooded by violent reactions from millions of readers for whatever article he will post and until he cries and beg for peace talk.

But of course the final solution, as always, is to file a class suit against the erring blogger for crime of libel and other criminal offenses arising from his blog entry. Once filed, let the course of law drag him around in his daily life..everyone knows it's hard to have pending case and derogatory record in our NBI and Police clearances.

The frog with croak of death will just leap from one blog page to another, annoying each and everyone of us and soon enough it will be a part of our daily blogging life until we get used to his irritating style.

Until an article of apology for OFWs is posted, he has no space in civil society, in society of matured and educated persons...ano akala niya..kunya-kunyarian?

OFW Remittances-Sulbabida ng Ekonomiya

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

Hundred percent siguro naman lahat ng bloggers marunong magbasa at makaunawa ng binabasa nya.

Ito na yung bendikasyon sa mga sinusulat na laban sa aming OFWs, mga naisulat na kulang sa tunay na impormasyon kundi punong-puno ng adhikaing sumikat sa maikling panahon. At palagay ko nasa ilalim ng kanyang kama at nagtatago sa kahihiyang napala so mundo ng blogs.

Ayun sa balitang 27 August 2009 na naisulat sa GMANews.TV, kung may time kayo basahin nyo..although nakakasawa na at alam na ng milyun-milyong Filipino, pero tila iilang nagmamatali-matalinuhan ang bulag sa katotohanang ito.

Mga kaibigan, ingles po ang balita,

The World Bank had earlier projected a four percent drop in remittances this year but Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Amando Tetangco said that signs of a global economic recovery "affirmed the positive outlook for steady remittances for 2009." (hango sa nasabing balita)

Nitong nakaraang June lang record high $1.5 billion ang ipinasok na salapi na itinuturing na nanatiling nagpapalutang sa ekonomiya ng Pilipinas. Ang tinutukoy rito ay US Dollars, so gaano kalaki yan sa Philippine Peso mantakin na lang na ito ay kalagitnaan palang ng taon? Paano pa pag dating ng buwang ng aginaldo at kapaskuhan.

Dahil naging naughty kayo, wala kayong regalo sa Santa Clause na OFW hehehehe!

Maibahagi ko na rin, na kasama sa bilyon-bilyong pera na iyan ang remittance ng caregivers at nurses (at lahat na bloggers na OFWs) na patuloy na bumubuhay sa ekonomiya ng bansa. Kasama rin dito ang remittance ng tinatawanan nilang domestice helpers at yung mga gumagawa ng "extra" para kumita pa. Sige husgahan nila at ipakita nila ang kanilang KONTRIBUSYON sa malinis man o maruming paraan. Mabuhay tayo sa katotohan na mayroon talagang gumagawa ng di kagandahan. Accepted ko yan, so sino ba ang unang pupukol ng bato sabi nga ni Kristo?

At kung kaya may access pa ang magagaling ng bloggers sa internet, kung kaya may mga serbisyong gubyerno pa ang nakakarating sa kanila at kung kaya mas maalwan pa kahit paano ang kabuhayan sa gitna ng global crisis dahil yan sa OFW remittances. Sisigla ba ang kalakalan sa SM, sa Robinson, sa Divisoria, sa mga sinehan, sa airport, ang lokal na turismo, at iba pang negosyo kung hindi mamimili ang pamilya ng OFW na ipinalalagay na 10 percent ng populasyon ng Pilipinas? Do your Mathematics! At karamihan po sa mga pamilya ng OFWs ay mga negosyate na rin sa Pilipinas, tama ba o mali?

Aba sa text messages at overseas call na lang....panalo na!

So bago gumawa ng artikulo, magbasa nang matuto. Magsaliksik at magtanong-tanong para magkaroon ng sustansya ang laman ng entry sa blog. Minsan sa kagustuhang mag mukhang matalino lalong lumulutang ang kamang-mangan.


Para sa akin, pasalamat ako dahil OFW ako kasama ako sa kahit paano nakakatulong at di ako kasama sa pasanin at pabigat sa lipunan.

OFW Topic - Ticket to Stardom

An entry of complex ideas, mixed up feelings or whatever. I don't know..nalito na rin ako

More often than not, I have encountered articles featuring Overseas Filipino Workers, their successes, failures and misfits. Some foreign writers touched and shared their personal stories, their momentous experiences with OFWs and their first encounter of the third kind with the Pinoys (parang alien 'no). Para bang kung maka-kwneto ay parang it was the most extraordinary encounter they had in their lives.

Mostly these stories talked about how a Filipino touches one's life, how an OFW rendered above-expectation kind of services, how a Filipino display heroic acts in extreme situation, or commendable no non-sense OFW's performance at the end of his every overseas day. These are all good stories. I am not saying no bad stories were written about us, yes, there are and plenty of them too!

Something about good stuff, however, I can call it "Isang paghanga in totality" to all OFWs by other nationalities in the country where an OFW is working. And mind you, as you go through the reading of these kind of articles, you can feel something inside yourself of some unexplainable of some sort of happiness and pride. The fact that you are not the one being talked about in the article... you can feel the sense of pride... probably you're even vocalizing your thought in soft tone.."ehem... that's us....I am Filipino too"

From those Fil-am Holywood stars, to Manny Pacquiao waving the Philippine flag in Las Vegas, to that Filipino nurse whose name was entered into the book of heroes of 9-11, to that honest OFW in Hongkong, to those extraordinary leadership exerted by Filipino communities in the Middle East which affects the region, to life-saving Pinoy doctors of the UK and the US, to all Filipino seamen and airmen, to all Pinoy desert-settlers working day and night, to all Fil-Am freedom fighters in Iraq and in Afghanistan...up to democratic icon - our very own Pres. Cory Aquino... as a Filipino.. what can you possibly feel...when someone uplifting the spirit of your being a Filipino?

Be honest...ang saya ng feeling di ba? Nakakasama ka sa papuri kahit di naman ikaw ang tinutukoy?

Ironically, while most of them posting articles praising and saluting OFWs, some "Filipinos" who are undeniably gifted in writing wrote non-sense and insulting entries to their blogs and columns about OFW just to shoot themselves to instant stardom. If you want to try it... write something stupid about us OFWs and see for are a shooting star the next day. But where does a shooting star go...most of the time into the quite abyss of the ocean. Dun mag isa ka na lang!

One should undestand and this has been mentioned many times, that OFWs are not just those who do "kadiri" works, or those you guys see in your porn DVD, OFWs are not just women... mostly we are those wearing Levi's Maong jacket upon arrival at NAIA..sporting long hair and mustache... so why play on women OFWs?

In order to educate some little brains of some so-called writers, OFW are not just low-salaried overseas workers, there are those big bosses OFWs whom you used to run to borrow money without any intention of paying them back (kasi inisip mo balato na yun). OFWs are also those you are pretending as friends upon their arrival and you keep on asking them about the date of their arrival...the fact that everyone knows when..and you are actually trying to make an opening line before you will say " pare kelan ka pa dumating, painum ka na naman". Sila rin yung kinukuha mong ninong at ninang kahit wala sa sila Pinas. Pinapa-proxy-han mo pa (tapos ang lakas mong manlait).

OFWs are not just caregivers and nurses, there are scientists, researchers, eningeers, educators, ambassadors, company owners, actors and many more. As I understand, not all OFWs are OWWA members and the term is not limited to those members alone as there are those who entered the foreign countries as tourists before getting their overseas works, without getting through the POEA. So I believe OFW is generalized term of Filipino working abroad. Nonetheless, no one, absolutely NO ONE should judge an OFW on his or her reason of living the country nor about his or her long stay abroad, whether one is categorized as low-salary on not.
(see the photo sila ba yung tinutukoy mong OFWs?)

(or sila?)

Also I am so confused about this, is there any glorifying thing about OFWs' scandals, failures and other "Kapit sa Patalim" decisions made by them? Sino ba ang hindi kumapit sa patalim? Kaya nga ang iba pinupulutan ang OFW sa kwento nila kasi kapit sa patalim na sila para sumikat, I don't really appreciate this style. Although some of these really happened and I am witness to that, if I have my way I would tap and talk with them rather that writing and posting or publishing their stories flowered by vulgar words and made-up lies just to look better as presented. Where is the Protein in your brain? As blogger, we should be aware that all our entries, just like commercial ad posters, should be rated as For General Patronage. Just like sexy billboard, it leaves to your imagination the rest about it.. no need to show its total nudity. And for additional information, what happening abroad is also happening in the Philippines as far as illicit affair is concerned. Self-explanatory yan. Really, whatever you write reflects your personality which also reflects what morality you have in your family.

While it is true, that the good story about OFWs is an exhausting-type of reading material, well my opinion to this is that, we have to accept this a matter of fact and that is the way it is being an OFW.....we cannot go against it, it is cultural, it is in the blood and by that we cannot stop good stuff about OFWs. OFWs are basically best source of overflowing triumphant stories. So more and more write-ups will be written and published, can you stop it?


We are driven by dreams and of love for our family that lead to love of work and extreme display of skills, talents and sacrifices...up to the fact the we are being exploited by our neighbors across our office table..kasi nga masipag tayo kahit trabaho na nya ipapagawa sa 'yo. And this NOT only for OUR DREAMS and of BEING RESPONSIBLE to our families, para kay nanay, kay tatay, kay ate, kay kuya at mga anak... this is ALSO for their dreams that we want them to reach. Paano magiging engineer si Kuya, paano ang bubong ng bahay, paano ang baha sa kalsada na pumapasok hanggang kusina? Pinanganak ka ba para umasa gubyerno, nakanganga at hindi ka kikilos at gagawa ng paraan? Kaya ka nga nag aral so you will have a broader horizon. That is why we are here abroad. Not purely because of money but because other's dream and our immeasurable love we have for them. Kasi kami ang lupon ng hindi madadamot sa katuparan ng pangarap ng mahal namin sa buhay.

But other blogger-vultures see this as an oppurtiny and an enteresting piece of flesh and worth giving a reaction if made a blog entry, so they made stories without personal account.Their chosen way to popularity is a bad taste of pill without curing effect at the end. It's like marrying someone you don't really love by heart but by personal interest. Happiness is ungodly and you are somebody who cries all the time in your solitude... gusto mo ba yun? And easy for you to say sorry...whether you wrote it as only pahaging to OFWs.. masakit pa rin ang tumamang hangin sa amin.

And I tell you this... as we are entitled to our opinion in our blogspace...I am not as forgiving as the others as I live by principle that, "anuman ang sinabi mo sa hangin, di mo na kayang habulin at bawiin" by Nicanor Formilleza, my grandfather, teaching on being responsible to our words we are going to say to others.

"2009 Galing ng Blog Mo Awardee"

First of all, congatulations to all 2009 KaBlogs awardees on different categories. This blog was so fortunate to have been chosen as the right one to grab that "Galing ng Blog Mo" Award for this year. Each award was also categorized for Non-Overseas Filipino Worker and for Overseas Filipino Worker, and I won the OFW award for the galing ng blog mo.

Thanks to all those people behind this award body who had worked for this months ago and to all those who voted for Bizjoker, as they found my page fit for this category. Thanks you guys, I owe you one.

Just like the winners in 2004 Presidential Election, although I never called, "Hello, Kenji", I knew two days beforehand that I won an award since it was me and Jeesa who prepared the list and the badges to be distributed on Monday, 17 August 2009. Nevertheless, rest assured that all the winners are well-derserved for the awards as Garci was never a part of the reviewing committee who went on blog-hopping on all nominated blogs and bloggers.

On my part, the fact that I have been around in bloggershere for quite some times, I am still a neophyte in the field of blog-writing, I will continue writing sensible entries, timely, base on truth, justice and morality to live by the award that I have received.

I just hope that next time...may cash na kasama ang badge hehehehehe! (o kaya gift cheque) joke!

Goodbye, President Aquino

As former member of Philippine National Police and a full-blood Class Kaagapay 1996, PNP- Aviation Security Group I am rendering my last and most snappy salute to President Corazon C. Aquino. My condolences to her family and to the entire Filipino Nation for our great lost of a true freedom fighter and world icon of democracy.

Ten years before our Class passed through the portal of Camp Vicente Lim, in Calamba, Laguna as gradute and as part of full-pledge members of the Philippine National Police, Pres. Cory led the nation to a real democracy and this part of the history is her great gift to our generations.

She lived a great, meaningful and patriotic life. A true insperation to all freedom-lovers and freedom fighters around the world.

Thanks, Pres. Cory Aquino

Kaagapay, Tanghal... na!
