Ibanag na Filipina ako - ikaw?

I stumbled upon this web campaign here. After browsing through the site I thought what a great idea, something worth supporting - all the way.

My take:
1. Filipinas are more than just mail-order brides. We are great wives to our husbands, mothers to our children, daughters to our parents, sisters to our siblings, girlfriends to our boyfriends, confidantes to our friends.
2. Filipinas are not only good domestic helpers. We are competent accountants, teachers, writers, lawyers, media practitioners, office workers, salespersons, factory workers, market vendors.
3. Filipinas are not only great caregivers but we are also terrific nurses, doctors, medical professionals, social workers, etc.
4. Filipinas are also capable call center workers, baristas, cooks, chefs, sometimes working and grinding the graveyard shift.
5. Filipinas also include self sacrificing OFW's and 'japayukis', striving overseas-based singers and band artists, fashion industry workers, ect.

I believe all these Filipinas no matter who they are, no matter where they come from, educated or not; they have a right to live the life they choose.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.

A Book About Wonderful and Amazingly Written Letters

I found this link and it tells about a book about letters written from the heart. I specifically love this one written by a dying mother to her daughter.
Check it out I guarantee that if you haven't written a snail mail in a long time, this will encourage you to write something again on paper and mail it through the Postal System.
