Arabian employer, eats with his Filipino housemaids in the same table

 An Arab employer’s was kind to his OFW employees and he ate with them at the same table and considering his OFW employees as a family.

Contrary to what we often hear about the cruelty of some Arab people, but this employer is considering his OFW employees as a family.

To be an OFW is very hard, tired, stressed and away to loved ones the most frequent felt by all OFWs just to get the family out of difficulties. Additionally, they are also facing dangers such as mistreatment of employers.

Even there are many news we received about the cruelties faced by OFWs in the hands of their employers, it is not quite fair that we blame all the judgment from the Arabs, because there are others who are kind and considered their kasambahays as a family members.

In a viral video shared by I Love Natividad on their Facebook page, some Filipina housemaids were happy eating with their boss, and its family. Seeing that they had fun while eating.

It will also notice in the video that the Pinay OFW’s are having fun and enjoying their job. There is no trace of sorrow seen in their faces. Their boss may be very kind to them, because they were eating at the same table and considered them as a family.

Lots of netizens amazed on the kindness of the Arab on his Pinay OFWs. Hopefully more employers will be same as him, and hopefully he will be blessed because of his kindness to the Pinay OFWs and some netizens also prayed that hopefully more OFWs will get luck, same as what we saw, to make things better while in their job abroad.

“Magdonate din po kau galing sa yaman nyu di puro fundraising galing sa bulsa ng ibang tao tpos kanino mapupunta ang credit aberrr lamm naa,” komento ng isang netizen.

Paliwanag naman ni Vice inilunsad niya lamang ang donation drive upang matulungan ang mga taong nais magpahatid ng donasyon sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo. Makakaasa raw na siya mismo ay maglalabas ng sariling pera pantulong sa mga nangangailangan.

Taiwan donated US$200,000 to typhoon-hit Philippines for its relief efforts

The Manila Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei (MECO) thanked Taiwan on Friday for donating US$200,000 to disaster relief efforts in the Philippines, as the country works to rebuild from damage caused by three major typhoons in recent weeks.

Since October, the Philippines has been hit in succession by typhoons Molave, Goni and Vamco, which have resulted in the deaths of at least 125 people and left hundreds of thousands homeless, according to the country's National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

On Friday, Taiwan representative to the Philippines Michael Hsu presented MECO with a donation of US$200,000 to go toward humanitarian relief efforts.

The gift was coordinated with the business group Taiwan Association Philippines (TAP), which made a separate donation of PHP70,000 (US$14,504) to those affected by the storms.

Expressing gratitude for the donations, MECO Deputy Resident Representative Gilberto F. Lauengco told CNA that "every time" the Philippines is hit by a natural disaster, Taiwan's public and private sectors have stepped up to provide generous assistance.

In Taipei, he said, multiple civic groups have organized efforts in recent week to donate money, food and clothing to victims of the typhoons.

"We are extremely grateful to Taiwan's government and people, who never hesitate to offer a helping hand in the aftermath of such disasters," Lauengco said.

Hsu pointed out that he had held three diplomatic postings in the Philippines and had never seen such extensive typhoon damage.

He noted that Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) had sent her thoughts to the country and promised to provide assistance in a Twitter post last week. -Central News Agency



Neglectful children let old father live alone and beg for food


A father from Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija has no choice but to live alone and beg for food to strangers despite him having children of his own.

A concerned netizen named Jenny Rose Leonardo Ventura shared the saddening situation of the old man, Rene Banaag in Facebook last Sunday (Nov. 15).

According to Ventura, no one is taking care of Tatay Rene. Other people sometimes just offer food just for him to have something to eat.

"May mga anak po yan hindi Inaasikaso ng mga anak, namamalimos Lang po sa kung Saan Saan. Walang nag aalaga po at mapanghe na nakatira Lang po sa barong barong, inaabutan Lang po ng pagkain," wrote Ventura.

Ventura now hopes that the program Raffy Tulfo in Action hosted by Raffy Tulfo would notice the pitiful situation of Tatay Rene. Tulfo is known for his generous acts to anyone who ask for help in his program.


Taiwan mandates wearing of face mask in public venues anew, violators will be fined


Taiwan will mandate the wearing of face masks at eight types of public venues from Dec. 1, with fines of NT$3,000-NT$15,000 for non-compliance, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Wednesday.

The new rules are intended to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses during their peak season in the winter months, and to prevent the overburdening of Taiwan's healthcare system, Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said at a press briefing.

Under the policy, masks will be required at healthcare facilities, on public transportation, at retail and wholesale stores and at designated educational facilities, said Chen, who also heads the CECC.

It will also apply to "exhibitions and athletics" (including movie theaters, stadiums, museums and concert halls), entertainment venues, religious facilities and locations where personal business is conducted, such as banks and post offices, he said.

According to Chen, those who refuse to wear a mask will be liable for fines of NT$3,000-NT$15,000 under Article 37 of Taiwan's Communicable Disease Control Act.

However, restaurants and bars will be exempt from the mandate, on the condition that social distancing is observed, the CECC said.

In terms of outdoor gathering places, such as night markets and traditional markets, and events like parades, religious gatherings and New Year's celebrations, the CECC recommended that organizers set maximum capacity limits based on available space. -Central News Agency


All people arriving in Taiwan must present negative COVID-19 test 3 days before arrival

All people arriving in Taiwan from abroad must present a negative COVID-19 test result before boarding a plane to Taiwan, starting next month, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced Wednesday.

Any individual set to visit Taiwan or transit through the country, regardless of nationality or reason for visiting, must present an English-language certificate of a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within three days of boarding when checking in, the CECC said.

The only exceptions are people coming to Taiwan for emergencies and crew members on ships, such as fishing boats, into Taiwan, given the difficulty for them to obtain the tests, the CECC said.

At present, only foreign nationals are required to get proof of a negative COVID-19 test when visiting Taiwan, while Taiwanese citizens, Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) holders and Alien Permanent Resident Certificate (APRC) holders are not required to do so.

The CECC said the new policy is part of expanded measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic within the country in anticipation of a new wave of infections during the autumn and winter period. -Central News Agency

Taiwan may obtain and see availability of COVID-19 vaccine by mid-2021

People in Taiwan may be able to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine, developed and produced by international companies, by mid-2021, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Tuesday.

An experimental vaccine developed by the American biotech company Moderna Inc. has yielded striking early results, showing close to 95 percent efficacy, it was announced Monday, one week after Pfizer and BioNTech reported promising results in their joint COVID-19 vaccine trials.

Asked about Taiwan's plans to acquire COVID-19 vaccines, CECC spokesman Chuang Jen-hsiang said Tuesday that while the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are in the third stage of human trials, there are other candidates.

Taiwan will not focus on any one vaccine candidate but rather would try to acquire them through the COVAX allocation plan, domestic research and development programs, and from international drug makers, he said.

Under the CECC's procurement plan, COVID-19 vaccines procured from international suppliers may become available to people in Taiwan by mid-2021, Chuang said.

He said the CECC was in contact with Moderna in August and September, and they talked about the projected supply date for the vaccine and the quantity Taiwan would require.

The CECC has budgeted NT$11.5 billion (US$403 million) for the purchase of 1.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, which works out to NT$700 each, excluding shipping costs, he said.

Under the COVAX global vaccine allocation plan, countries can sign up to purchase COVID-19 vaccines. The project's aim is to accelerate the development and manufacture of the vaccines, as well as to guarantee fair and equitable access to the vaccines in every country.

Taiwan joined COVAX on Sept. 18, but the government has not made public how many doses of vaccine it intends to buy through the plan. -Central News Agency

Sanggol, inilagay sa palanggana para makaligtas sa baha sa Cagayan

Upang mailigtas sa bahang dulot ng bagyong Ulysses, inilagay ng isang ina ang tatlong buwang gulang nitong sanggol sa palanggana habang sila ay lumilikas mula sa kanilang tahanan sa Lal-lo, Cagayan.

Kwento ni Romelyn Tabalno, 25-anyos,  bigla na lamang daw tumaas hanggang leeg ang lebel ng tubig-baha sa kanilang lugar kung kaya minabuti nilang lumikas.

Subalit, dahil sa pangambang mabitawan niya ang kaniyang anak na si Ayla Erin Agnes, inilagay niya ito sa isang palanggana habang sinusuong ang baha.

"Tahimik s'ya. Sobrang bait nung nasa palanggana. Baka po kasi mabasa or mabitawan po namin s'ya kaya nilagay po namin sa palanggana. 'Yun lang po naisip naming paraan para maging safe si baby," sabi ni Romelyn.

Ligtas namang nakalikas ang mag-ina at kasalukuyan sila ngayong naninirahan sa kubo ng kaniyang biyenan na nakatirik sa mataas na bahagi ng Cagayan.

Ilocano group in Taiwan prepared balikbayan boxes to be given to typhoon victims in PH

An international Filipino organization on Sunday called for donations of relief goods to be prepared as "balikbayan boxes" or care packages to be given to victims of Typhoon Vamco, which has caused widespread destruction in the Philippines.

As Filipinos reel from the wrath of Typhoon Vamco, known locally as Ulysses, the Confederation of Ilocano Association, Inc., Samahang Ilocano (CIASI) made the plea to over 1,000 Filipinos living in Taiwan, mostly migrant workers.

CIASI is an international Philippine organization with 13 chapters and a total of about 900 members in Taiwan.

They made the appeal at an outdoor basketball court in Taipei's Datong District where the Filipinos were gathered for the association's Taipei Winter Basketball League 2020 opening ceremony.

The organization called for donations of cash, clothes or dried goods, such as canned sardines, noodles and powdered milk, to be sent back in king-size cardboard boxes as numerous areas in the Cagayan Valley region, northeast of the capital Manila, remain submerged in flood waters.

"Look at my hometown of Baggao in the province of Cagayan," said Rheden Delumen, national chairman of CIASI in Taiwan, as he showed CNA an aerial photo of the municipality submerged in as much as two-story high flood waters, with crop plantations destroyed.

Arnold Kanoy, leader of the CIASI in Taiwan Disciplinary Action Committee and commissioner of the basketball tournament, said the "balikbayan boxes" will be sent out as soon as possible after the donations are collected.

"I have the blood of a Filipino and I have to help my countrymen," he said. -Central News Agency



Ulap na nagmistulang imahe ni Jesus, nakuhanan ng isang netizen

 Usap usapan ngayon sa social media ang litratong ipinost sa Facebook na may hugis ni Hesus sa pamamagitan ng mga ulap, Maaaring sabihin ng iba na nasa utak at iniisip mo lamang ito o ito ay dala lamang ng isang pagkakataon at ang iba naman na naniniwala na ang mga simbolong ito ay may mga sinasabing pahiwatig.

Noong mga nakaraang araw, may isang residente ng San Salvador de Jeyuy sa bansang Argentina ang kumuha ng litrato ng ulap na may liwanag at humugis kagaya ng imahe ni Hesus na nakasuot ng robe.

Isang residente ng Argentina na nag ngangalang Monica Aramayo ang nakakita at nakakuha ng larawan na ito na kung saan may isang liwanag ang lumitaw sa langit na kahawig ng estatwa ni Hesus na naka suot ng puting robe at naka dukwang ang braso na para bang sumasalubong sa kanyang mga tao na naniniwala sa kanya upang bigyan ito ng grasya.

Isang puting may hugis na ulo sa ulap ang makikita sa litrato na ito at maraming mga taong nag sasabi na si ‘Jesus Christ’ ay parang naka suot pa ng korona, Maraming mga tao rin ang nag kukumpara sa litrato na kuha ni Monica sa malaking estatwa sa tuktok ng bundok sa Rio de Janeiro sa Brazil na “Christ the Redeemer”.

Ito ay matatagpuan sa layong tatlong daang libong kilometro kung saan kinuhaan ni Monica ang litrato.

Sinabi ni Monica na dali dali niyang kinuhanan ang larawan dahil naniniwala siya na isa itong mensahe galing sa Panginoon,
Hindi man maliwanag ang mensahe sa lahat ngunit baka ito ang simbolo na kung saan mas lalo dapat natin paghirapang matupad ang kapayapaan sa buong mundo.

Maraming mga kristyano naman ang naniwala sa pinapakitang mensahe at larawang ito ngunit may iba namang nag dududa na ito ay isang pekeng litrato. Itinanggi naman ito ni Monica at sinabing hindi niya ito inedit.

Tumutulong sa mga nangangailangan ang tunay na nagmamahal sa Diyos

Tayo'y umiibig sapagkat ang Diyos ang unang umibig sa atin. Ang nagsasabing "iniibig ko ang Diyos" subalit napopoot naman sa kaniyang kapatid ay isang sinungaling. Kung ang kapatid na kaniyang nakikita ay hindi niya magawang ibigin, paano niya maiibig ang Diyos na hindi niya nakikita?

Ito ang utos na ibinibigay sa atin ni Cristo: "Ang umiibig sa Diyos ay dapat ding umibig sa Kaniyang kapatid". (1 Juan 4:19-21)

Ang isang pag-ibig o pagmamahal sa isang tao kapag hindi mo naipapakita sa pamamagitan ng gawa at puro salita lamang ay walang ipinagkaiba sa isang malamig na ulam--hindi mo malalasahan ang linamnam.

Sa talata kung inyong mababasa, napakalinaw ng mensaheng nais nitong iparating sa atin: "Ang nagsasabing iniibig ko ang Diyos subalit napopoot naman sa kaniyang kapatid ay isang sinungaling."

Ang isang pag-ibig upang mapatunayan na talagang ito ay makatotohanan, kinakailangan din na ito ay ating naipakikita. Hindi lamang sa pamamagitan ng salita bagkos ay sa pamamaraan din ng gawa.

Ang mga salitang ito na nagsasabing iniibig nila ang Diyos ay walang iniwan sa isang biskuwet na kung tawagin ay ampaw. Parang pandesal na puro hangin ang laman.

Kung ang pag-ibig ay mananatiling isang salita lamang, wala itong ng saysay. Sapagkat ang anumang salita na nagsasabing "iniibig natin ang Panginoong Diyos" subalit hindi naman natin naipapakita sa ating kapwa ay isa lamang huwad na pag-ibig.

Dahil kung wala tayong napapala o nakukuha mula sa pag-ibig na ibinibigay natin para sa mga taong minamahal natin, baka isipin na ito'y pag-ibig na "makasarili" o selfish Love.


4 more storms could hit Philippines by year-end, PAGASA says

Before the end of the year there are four more storms could enter the Philippine area of responsibility , state weather bureau PAGASA warned Wednesday (November 11).

Philippines has been experienced by back to back typhoons starting with Typhoon Quinta last month and Super Typhoon Rolly early this month.

Another weather disturbance, severe tropical storm Ulysses, was last spotted 80 km northeast of Virac, Catanduanes or 415 km east of Infanta, Quezon at 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Packing 100 kph winds and up to 125 kph gusts, the storm is forecast to reach 20 km north northeast of Infanta, Quezon in 24 hours.

PAGASA has raised tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) No. 2 over Metro Manila and neighboring provinces. Due to the expected intensification of Ulysses, the weather agency said TCWS No. 3 may be hoisted over several provinces in Bicol Region, Metro Manila and portions of Calabarzon and Central Luzon once the tropical cyclone develops into a typhoon.

The weather bureau said there is a high risk of storm surge with heights of up to 3.0 m over the coastal areas of Quezon including Polillo Islands, Camarines Norte, Catanduanes, and the northern and eastern coastal areas of Camarines Sur, and up to 2.0 m over the coastal areas of Aurora, Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, northern portions of Mindoro Provinces including Lubang Island, Marinduque, Romblon, Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands, Albay, and Sorsogon, and the remaining coastal areas of Camarines Sur.

"These storm surges, which may be accompanied by swells and/or breaking waves near the coast, can cause life-threatening and damaging coastal inundation. Moreover, there is also a moderate risk of seiche or storm surge over the coastal areas surrounding Laguna de Bay," PAGASA warned. (ABS-CBN NEWS)
