As I was blog-hopping the previous nights (or early mornings), I stumbled upon blogger Faery and I was surprised to read her post. Her cousin's husband Jomer was a passenger in MV Princess of the Stars on that fateful day and, as of today, he still hasn't been found. Nevertheless their neighbor Ruel, one of the ship's crew and one of the survivors found in Quezon, confirmed that Jomer had jumped off the vessel when the captain announced 'abandon ship'.
Please join me in praying not only for the missing passengers and crew of the capsized ship but also for their loved ones. As Faery posted:
I can't help but ask. If worse comes to worse, which would you prefer? Seeing a loved one dead or have them missing for like...forever?It's really disheartening.
Being a Filipino is already exhausting what with the economy and state of our country. Plus the discrimination we get from other nations. My friends in Singapore said that even though they're all Asians there, you can still see some discrimination on Filipinos. Sad, ei? :(
But let's see this article here.
Thanks to emcee for sharing this. :)
It's good to hear that our global presence isn't totally taken for granted. I remember Zafra's previous write-up that we can achieve world domination by using our domestic helpers abroad. Perhaps we have a better chance now for world domination since almost all of the Filipino families have at least one relative abroad. Think about that.
Actually I was inspired to do this post because I'm tired. Physically. (Not yet mentally and emotionally.)
I'm changing my body clock so I can sleep normally like other people do and not like I'm in a graveyard shift. I don't even have a job so why should I do night shifts? I'm going to sleep now and tomorrow morning I hope I can greet you and do my regular visits to my blogging friends. (It's great to know that you can find sweet individuals online.) Also, I'll be going through my job-hunting. Shh. ^^
So I'll leave you with this pretty thought, which I got from Fab.
I know this is kinda girlie, but we can all relate to the general idea, don't we? What's more tiring than to be someone you're not? But then who's tiring you but yourself? ;)
Good night, people. Sweet dreams! ^^
