President Noynoy Aquino III Inaugural Speech on OFW

"Layunin nating paramihin ang trabaho dito sa ating bansa upang hindi na kailangan ang mangibangbansa para pakapaghanap ng trabaho ngunit habang ito ay hindi pa natin naaabot, inaatasan ko ang mga kawani ang DFA, POEA, OWWA at iba pang katulad na ahensya na paigtingin ang pagtugon sa mga hinaing at pangangailangan ng ating mga overseas filipino workers" said President Elect Noynoy Aquino.

Isa ito sa mga aasahang pangako ng bagong halal na Pangulong Noynoy Aquino III lalo na ng milyon milyong OFW sa buong mundo. Sabi nya ito na ang simula ng pagbabago at katapusan ng pamahalaang manhid sa mga hinaing at paghihirap ng ating mga kababayan ngunit ito rin ang simula ng kanyang kalbaryo sa pagpasan ng kahirapan at mga suliraning kinakaharap ng ating bansa. Hindi daw siya ang gumawa at nagpasimula ng pagbabago kundi tayong mga mamamayang nagluklok sa kanya sa pagkapangulo. Ipinangako nya rin na sisikapin nya sa abot ng kanyang makakaya na mgakaroon ng pagbabago ang ating bansa. Hindi daw sapat ang pwede na.

Fingers crossed, mataas ag ekspektasyon ng lahat ng OFW kay P.Noy lalo na kaming mga tunay na bayani na naririto sa Dubai at sa Gitnang Silangan. Maasahan mo palagi ang aming suporta sa pagtupad mo ng iyong tungkulin, nawa ay basbasan ka ng Panginuong Maykapal ng sapat na lakas, tapang, katalinuhan at kakayanang itaguyod ang Pilipinas lalo na ngayon nasa kamay mo na ang kapangyarihan. Umaasa kami na ito na nga ang simula ng isang maunlad at may pag-asang bayan, malayo sa kahirapan at korapsyon. Totoo naman kasi ang naging kasabihan nang :Kung Walang Corrupt, Walang Mahirap" sapagkat lahat ng salaping pumapasok sa kaban ng yaman ng Pilipinas ay naipamamahagi sa lahat.

Ipagpautloy mo ang mithiin ng iyong mga magulang. You did not fall far from the tree, katulad ka rin ng iyong ama at ina na nagtaguyod ng Pilipinas na may mabuting layunin para sa ating bayan.

I am proud to be a Filipino. I am happy that I have witness this historic event and that I am looking forward to a better and wealthy Philippines. A place where I can safely return after our hardships abroad, knowing that it is free from poverty and corruption, and live a good life.

Mabuhay ka President Noynoy Aquino III.

  1. I've read the transcript of his speech and I intently scrutinized his "promises" to the OFW. We can only hope for the best things to happen.

How to Apply for Children's Residence Visa Under Mother Sponsorship in Dubai 2019

Dubai, 29/09/2019 For expatriate married women living and working in Dubai especially those earning less than 10,000 dirhams salary per month and whose job description is not allowed to apply for visas for their family, sponsoring their children has never been easy until the recent changes in Dubai immigration rules that took effect mid of 2019 this year. The rule now allows any UAE resident (those who have a valid employment visa) male or  FEMALE can now sponsor family members provided that he or she earns a monthly salary of AED 4000 or AED 3000 plus accommodation according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Back in the day, when I tried to sponsor my husband, my experience was completely different. You can read about it  here . Just this month, a friend of mine applied for her children's visa in Dubai. It was approved, and the visa was issued and stamped on her children's passports. We shared below the documents required and the step-by-step

Sinampalukang Isda (Tilapia/Sea Bream) Pang-alis Umay!

 After Christmas and New Year holidays, do you feel you've had enough of the leftovers? I feel the same way. I needed something to break away from it. The first craving I had was a very Pinoy fish dish.  Sinampalukang isda. Some would think of it as sinigang but it is not sinigang. It is a soup dish of fish in tamarind broth, ginger, chilis, onions, tomatoes, radish leaves or pechay, and of course fish. Okay, it is like sinigang (hahaha). It usually calls for tilapia but I opted for sea bream. It is a completely hearty meal. Of course, to be eaten with hot steaming rice and sawsawan (a mixture of fish sauce and green chili) The original dish calls for fresh raw tamarind but since it is hardly available where I am, I used powdered tamarind. The difference is that fresh raw tamarind gives this dish a thick broth distinct from sinampalukang isda my parents used to cook for us, unlike powdered tamarind. (oh well ex-pat life) So, how to cook it? Ingredients (serves 2) 1 medium-size sea
