Super Fun TV

I haven’t been to a casino. I just see it on television and movies. Because I am a full time mom, I don’t have time to go there, until I learned about the online casino games and found the website of Super Casino TV that offers different casino games. Here you can play liveroulette TV. This is a liveroulette which is played like every other roulette game. All you have to do is simply switch your TV and play. This is like playing in a casino but at your own convenience. You can add money in your pocket without going anywhere. This is perfect for moms like me who wants to take some time off from household chores and earn extra without leaving the house.

Lesser Opportunity In our Own Country

One of the world’s greatest problems is unemployment. The reason why many Filipinos are leaving the country to sustain their family’s daily needs and to give their children better future is because other countries can offer better jobs and more opportunities than the country of our own. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I am a true-blooded Filipino and I love the Philippines. What I do not like is the bureaucracy or I should say “bureaucrazy”?

According to my sister who used to work in South Korea for 5 years, it is very easy to find a job there. Koreans just have to walk from one factory to another. The employer will ask them how much salary they like. If the employer agrees, then they can start working the next day without even asking for their names. The following day, it’s the only time the employer will ask for their names and other information plus, there is no age limit. Even a 70 year old can work as long as he or she is capable to work.

How about here? When applying for a job, 2 to 3 years experience is a must in most companies and if you are above 35 years old, most likely they will not hire you except of course in call centers. You have to take series of tests, then pass the initial interview and pass the final interview. If you are lucky enough to pass all of these, then you have to complete all the requirements. One is certificate of employment from previous employers which will be the proof that you have experience.

You will be asked then to secure an NBI clearance. Unlikely, you can not get the NBI clearance without the police clearance, you can not get a police clearance without the barangay clearance and you can not get a barangay clearance without the cedula or tax certificate. In short, you have to get them all. Whew!!!

Then, there is the medical examination. Most of the companies are accepting results only from their affiliated laboratories which will cost you more than a thousand. You are looking for a job to earn but seem you will spend much before you can start working.

More often than not, finding a job is like a business. You have to invest before you can earn. How about those who want to have decent jobs but can not meet these requirements? How about those who are qualified but do not have even a single centavo to spend? Result: unemployment, poverty, hunger, theft, robbery, prostitution. It is so sad that this is happening in our country. I am hoping that our government can find solutions to solve this problem in increasing number of unemployed Filipinos and not just focus in 2010 elections.

Be Grateful With What We Have

WARNING!!! IF YOU ARE DOWN AND DEPRESSED RIGHT NOW, DO NOT READ THIS…

A friend sent me an email. It says don’t break the chain and send it to others for them to be aware and be grateful with what they have. I have already sent it to my friends whom I have email addresses. I thought of posting it here for you my friends in blogosphere.

My great friends, let this not come to you as a surprise,

but it’s real, having them living around us and our neighborhood today.

We can change it with prayers and always lend a helping hand to those in need.

Thank God for food and water that you already have.

This is one reason why we have to thank God for the food

that we can have easily…but in the other hand…ironically,

we still waste the food that we buy.

I feel very grateful for what I have today…

We are so blessed for the wonderful works of God’s hand in our life today.

Just think of this…

“I felt very fortunate to live in this part of the world.

I promise I will never waste my food no matter how bad it can taste or how full I may be.

I promise not to waste water.

I pray that this little boy be alleviated from his suffering.

I pray that we will be more sensitive towards the suffering in the world around us

and not be blinded by our own selfish nature and interests.

I hope these pictures will always serve as a reminder to us about how fortunate we are

and that we must never ever take things for granted.

Think and look at this…when you complain about your food

and the food we waste daily…”

May all human beings be free from suffering!!!

Let us make a prayer in any place around the globe

and send this friendly reminder to others.

Let your friends know what God has done in his/her life

compared with these kids’ deplorable conditions.

Everyday 25,000 died of hunger around the world. Very depressing but serves as an eye opener as well. Two things made me cry this week, this email from my friend and the video of Chicken Ala Carte from Mommy Rose’s post.

Sudden Change In Weather

I thought April is still summer. I remember our swimming last year was some time in April. I had asthma attacks these past weeks because it was really hot but now it is raining cats and dogs here in our place for 4 days. My daughter can’t play outside. She’ll sleep this afternoon and I promised her that she can play outside when she wakes up but it is raining again. I am wondering of the sudden change in weather. Is it because of the global warming? If it is raining heavy now, how heavy will it be on rainy days?

Let us start doing our part to fight the global warming. Let us reduce our energy consumption by increasing the efficiency of our vehicles, purchase appliances which advertise energy efficiency, replace the light bulbs in our house with compact fluorescent bulbs, etc. Let us start recycling and avoid using plastic bags, plastic bottles, and the likes. Let us filter our tap water instead of buying bottled water and use eco bags instead of plastic bags every time we go shopping.

Yes, this is easily said than done but I will try my best to do my share in saving the mother earth. By doing so, may be we can enjoy longer summer in the following years and our children can enjoy their vacations by playing more outside.
