Agree?We Filipinos Ranked 5th Among Happiest People?

Posted by:

Despite the problems that every Filipinos are facing in their everyday lives, regardless of where they are, the Filipinos have made it to the list of people experiencing positive emotions on a daily basis.

 

happy filipino

 

A research made by Gallup.com last year indexed the percentage of happy people around the world, taking into consideration criteria like how often they laugh or smile, experience enjoyment, treated with respect and feel well-rested.

 

Most people who scored high in the survey was from the Latin American countries, comprising most of the top 10 spots. The Filipinos, surprisingly, made it to the 5th rank. However, the lowest positive emotions were from people living in the Middle East and North African regions.

 

Filipinos in the 5th rank? Well, this may be good news since this is a positive review and we ranked well. But, do we really feel that positive emotion? Are we really happy despite everything?

 

Everyday, in the news, we’ll hear about a government official exposed for his corrupt deed, a crime victim, fare hike, basic utility bills hike, transportation malfunction, and more.

 

Such negative news that you would watch on tv program, hear on the radio car, and read on newspaper or the web. Now I wonder, how the Filipinos made it to the 5th spot?

 

When you ask a Filipino about how well can he or she compare his or her present status, you’ll surely receive complains that its not any better or it had gotten worse than before. But still, they’ll add it can do, they can still survive.

 

Yes, we Filipinos are resilient. How many typhoons had destructed not only our homes, but our lives and yet we continue to fight and survive?  We Filipinos managed to shrug it off and smile, knowing that we can go on with our lives.

 

Because our strong faith is our asset. We always surrender everything to God, knowing that He will not neglect us. He will never forget us and will make a way to help us survive and be strong again to stand and continue our life.

 

Again, do you agree that the Filipinos were among the happiest people in the world? Yes, I do. Just like the campaign slogan, it’s more fun in the Philippines. It’s more fun for Filipinos.

Obvious Signs that the Overseas Job Offer is A Scam

Posted by:

These are the obvious signs that the overseas job being offered to a Filipino overseas job applicant is fake and not existing:

 

  1. An invitation to a 2-day seminar where participants are asked to pay Php3,800 in exchange of guaranteed employment abroad.
  2. May be offered by a “licensed recruitment agency” but the job being offered has no existing job order from POEA.
  3. Job looks promising. A job opportunity looks so attractive because it is open to everyone such as students, undergraduates, housewives, ex-OFWs, etc.
  4. It is complete with tempting offers such as “No placement fee, No processing fee, No salary deduction, No show Money and No experience required.
  5. Offers great benefits such as free accommodation and food allowance and that the only fees that they would collect are Php3,888.00 for visa interview coaching and Php5,000.00 for medical tests.
  6. The applicant is also required to pay Php500 or higher for the application form.

 

To avoid these kinds of scam, POEA Admin Hans Leo J. Cacdac is encouraging job seekers who have received such recruitment emails to forward the same to info@poea.gov.ph for verification and proper action by the POEA.

 

Remember: Immigration consultancy companies are NOT allowed to engage in the recruitment of Filipino workers abroad unless they have a license from the POEA.
