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

I feel so proud this morning, kasi naka-received ako ng email from Servando Delen, ang nag iisang ka-batch ko sa Camp Taji, Iraq. Sabi niya " Wow pare number five ka sa PEBA!"
Natawa ako kasi kahit papaano, nasa top ako sa LISTAHAN... sa listahan lang po!
Just being a nominee actually is already a big deal to me, how much more being a finalist. Nung nasa showbiz nga ako, being a nominee for an award is more than enough to be a fulfillment for career move. Di ko lang talaga kaya ang intriga sa showbiz...madalas akong ma-link sa mga leading ladies ko....(ipapakasal ko kay Gloria ng hindi tumawa)
Nakakatuwa kasi magada ang exposure ng PEBA 2009 mukhang sobrang big event. I am so proud at naging part ako ng PEBA !
Visit nyo ang site ni Ellen Tordesillas, nakita ko roon si Pope nag comment...kaya nag sign-up rin ako para pasamalatan ang butihing si Ellen. Bukod sa magiginig judge sya ng PEBA, binigyan nya tayo ng exposure. I would like also to thank ABS CBN for the exposure na ginawa nila para sa atin.
Please visit these sites:
Mabuhay po kayo!
Down below the news article sa ABS was a comment from fellow OFW from Sudan, Africa. And his sentiment was that PEBA, as he said, is after only for those in developed countries. He was telling PEBA to visit them and see their plight in that part of the world, so the world will know.
I think he misunderstood the cause of PEBA, the fact that we are really pro-OFWs but I think we cannot write about things we never personally experienced. I suggest somebody from that place should start blogging and tell the world how is it going in Sudan.
In my opinion, I cannot write something about a place that I don't have any knowledge about, baka tamaan ako ng kidlat, and if I wrote it wrong.. somebody will rebuke me and start hating me.
Now, if he could send us verified information, with links and really evidential, maybe I could write something for him..pero the best thing he should write it himself and join the PEBA next year.
Wala pong favoritism dito. Nais ng lahat maipalam ang tunay na kalagayan ng OFW sa lahat na sulok ng mundo, and it is up to us to relay the message through blogging.
Sana nga maging blogger din itong si Ed.
Here is his comment on ABS-CBN site:
Nakalimutan yata nyo kami d2 sa Sudan Africa...? Mga kababayan nyo nagta-trabaho d2 sa gitna ng disyerto...? Napuna ako ang mga kandidato nyo ay puro na sa developed countries, maliban lang sa Afghanistan.?
Paano naman kami mare-recognized ng blog award na yan..?
Mahirap ang kalagayan namin d2. Bakit di kayo pumunta dito at magsuri ng kalagayan d2 sa Southern Sudan kaysa sa nakikita nyo ay yun lamang mga nasa developed countries. Pansinin nyo rin kami dito sa Africa
