The French Connection

Filipino workers who dream of one day saying Oui, mademoiselle, Oui mossieur, or those imagining to drink that uppity and classy Bordeaux wines, or perhaps salivating on escargot as in French haute cuisine--- time to make a landing at Charles de Gaulle Airport. And start brushing up on your French. Because Paris here we come. Whopee!

How you say?

French Ambassador to the Philippines confirmed that France is easing up their immigration rules to accommodate more Filipino IT and nursing professionals. It’s been quite a process but finally signing of the formal agreement will happen this year between country representatives.

Fact is, Filipino professionals are known to be one of the most outstanding workers worldwide. Be it an IT line of work, engineering, accountancy, customer service, the fine arts, health care I must say we are among the best. And what country wouldn’t want such type of workers?

France is a country where the words, liberty, equality and fraternity was born, where jus soli and jus sanguinis defines birth right, and where until lately, full citizenship was denied to women. There's only one wish I'd like to make regarding this new development, that more Filipinos learn to speak the French language so there's more guys to practice with :-)

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.
