"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

PH drops in peace index ranking

by/Angela Casauay, Published Aug 24, 2014

The Philippines is ranking 134 out of 162 countries – a drop of 5 places from 2012 in the 2014 Global Peace Index.

Internal and external threats to peace continue to hound the Philippines, affecting its overall ranking in the 2014 Global Peace Index.

Many netizens online are arguing if Miss Philippines candidates or Filipino celebrities are in European or Indian descents, whereas the real thing is, most of them are pure-blood Filipinos.

Very informative article about the Philippines' culture and society. How Philippines developed as a nation and made its mark as Republic through fighting for independence and wanting to established the Philippines as a nation. Eventhough most of the traditions and beliefs are hand over by the colonialization of Spanish and American, distinct characteristics of the Filipino and exotic traditions were being maintained and practiced like being hospitable with a sense of pride, sharing a candid smile to everyone and the evolution of "Bayanihan" (helping in times of crisis) in todays era.

"Father of the National Language" - Manuel Luis Quezón y Molina

(August 19, 1878 – August 1, 1944) served as president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines from 1935 to 1944. He was the first Filipino to head a government of the Philippines (as opposed to other historical states). Quezón is considered by most Filipinos to have been the second president of the Philippines, after Emilio Aguinaldo (1897–1901).

Quezón was the first Senate president elected to the presidency, the first president elected through a national election, and the first incumbent to secure re-election (for a partial second term, later extended, due to amendments to the 1935 Constitution). He is known as the "Father of the National Language".

EDITORIAL: Playing back old Filipino values

From a regionalist perspective, it is rather impolite for the Department of Education to name its annual celebration of the Philippine languages held every August as Buwan ng Wika, highlighting the Filipino language with utmost importance. If its main purpose is to celebrate the variety and diversity of Philippine tongues, then it should not concentrate on one language only.

The only way to save Chavacano, Zamboanga City's pidgin Spanish language, is to teach and encourage young Zambuenos to speak it up with pride. Much as we admire the rise of many Chavacano-speaking page/groups in FB, we are alarmed seeing few young people joining in. As it is, Chavacano is in danger of dying with the older generation. At the Kristiyano-Islam (Kris) Peace Library, we encourage all Kris scholars and library users to speak pure Chavacano.

The Kristiyano-Islam Peace Library, or KRIS is an award-winning, non-profit, non-government organization based in Manila devoted to making education more accessible to Filipino youth living in poor and conflicted communities. Through its libraries, scholarship programs, and learning projects, it has been giving aid to hundreds of students from Zamboanga City, Zamboanga Sibugay, Davao City, Rizal, and Metro Manila since 2001.

NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION OF FILIPINOS UNDERSTANDING NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION OF FILIPINOS

A Traditional Form of Literacy

by/Brad D. Washington, MA

Fans are called "paypay", "pamaypay", "abaniko (abanico)" in the Philippines.

The abaniko, together with the baro't saya, was once a part of a lady's attire. Read about the various ways of using and holding the abaniko may convey different meanings.

--------

Si la mujer escondía los ojos detrás del abanico, estaba diciendo a su interlocutor que lo quería.

If the woman hid her eyes behind the fan, she was saying to her would-be suitor that she loved him.

Si colocaba el abanico sobre la mejilla izquierda, la respuesta era: No; y si lo posaba sobre la derecha, la respuesta era: Sí.

If she placed the fan on her left cheek, the answer was: No; and if she placed it on the right cheek the answer was: Yes.

Si la mujer se abanicaba con rapidez, significaba que estaba comprometida; y si lo hacía lentamente, le transmitía que estaba casada.

If the woman fanned herself quickly it meant that she was engaged; and if she fanned herself languidly, she indicated that she was married.

Yes, you could e.g.:
Did you know that you can be deported for simply getting angry and raising your voice at a Filipino? It’s true! Let’s say that you are in a restaurant and the service is poor. You loose your cool and get angry at the waitress. She can go to the Bureau of Immigration and file a complaint against you, and most likely, you will be deported!

In the Philippines, children are taught to respect their elders. One way of expressing respect is by "kissing" the right hand of an older person when you greet them. Several symbolic ways in which respect is given to elders is in the use of language by calling older Filipinos “Po” and older siblings, cousins, and family friends “Kuya” and “Atee”.

Local Etiquette - Manila

How to behave in social situations in Manila. Here are a few customs and etiquette to be aware of during your visit to the Phillipines. Filipinos value honor. The concept of hiya or shame requires one to behave in a manner that will not shame the person or the family. Handshake is common when meeting someone. If elders are present, acknowledge them first. Address people formally indicating their profession or using their last names. In discussions Filipinos tend to be non-confrontational. People will not directly say no.

Au Pair programs are banned by the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs. But some still manage to join these programs and end up working illegally abroad.

We take a closer look at the lives of au pairs. Au Pairs normally stay with a host family in a foreign country to learn about language and culture, while helping with daily chores. But for some Filipinos, au pair programs become opportunities to become undocumented domestic workers. While living with their host families for 18 months, they serve as nannies, cooks and all-around helpers.  Look the full description both in English and Tagalog of the video HERE

No More Balikbayans - The truth is, life abroad is hard

They all leave the country burning with desire for a better of life. Yet many return home as cold and lifeless corpses. Wala Nang Balikbayan is about the many vulnerabilities that Overseas Filipino Workers face abroad, at times leading to their death either under mysterious circumstances or through capital punishment. In this documentary, OFWs are victims of abuse and the Philippine governments criminal neglect. They are, however, also beginning to fight for their rights and to question the ultimate folly of the government's labor export program.

Migrant domestic workers in UAE treated like 'animals'

by/Buena Bernal Published 10:00 Oct 23, 2014

'The UAE should reform its kafala system so domestic workers can change employers without their consent and without losing valid immigration status,' says Human Rights Watch.
Sexual violence, isolation and forced confinement, unpaid wages, long working hours with limited food, and regular beating are just some of the conditions migrant domestic workers in oil-rich United Arab Emirates (UAE) endure in the hands of their employers.

Quezon City resident Marelie Brua returned home to the Philippines after suffering maltreatment and a meager 800-dirham ($217 or P9,712) monthly pay under the employ of an Arab family.

A mere animal "bought" at a price is how domestic workers to the UAE are regarded, Brua shared in an HRW clip.

This "seemingly entrenched pattern" of abuses was detailed in a 79-page report by New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) released Thursday, October 23 2014, - "I Already Bought You" - urging the UAE government to enact reforms to put an end to it. (look below link)

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS

NO LONGER SLAVES, BUT BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Look also the article "Pope to shoppers: Don't buy products made by modern-day slaves"
by/Agence France-Presse Published Dec 11, 2014 HERE

His message, published by the Vatican on Wednesday, December 10, slams "the growing scourge of man's exploitation by man," an "abominable phenomenon" covering everything from forced prostitution to child soldiers and slave labour in factories.
"I think also of persons forced into prostitution, many of whom are minors, as well as male and female sex slaves... (of) women forced into marriage, those sold for arranged marriages and those bequeathed to relatives of deceased husbands," he says.
According to the 2014 Global Slavery index, published last month, nearly 36 million men, women and children are trapped in modern-day slavery, the definition of which ranges from forced marriages to people coerced into prostitution, fighting wars or manual labour like picking cotton.

Since then, Migrante International has become an active defender of the rights and welfare of OFWs by raising public awareness on their plight and providing a critical analysis of the Philippine government’s labor export policy program as the main factor responsible for the commodification of Filipino workers.

Look page 78 to 90 incl.

Designing and Building with Bamboo

One of the earliest and, perhaps, the most widespread use of bamboo is in building construction. The cylindrical structure and ready finish of bamboo predispose it as a natural building material. The high strength and low weight add to its utility.

Bamboo in Construction

Since ancient times, bamboo has been in wide usage as a low-cost building material in Asia and elsewhere. It is also used, in countries where it grows abundantly, for building bridges and scaffolding. In recent times, departing from tradition, bamboo has also started appearing in designer homes as flooring, walling and paneling material.

An emergency is something that can be described as an event that occurs which is unexpected. The event could be a natural occurrence such as floods or tornadoes, or it could be man-made events such as from fire or other causes.

The way people react can be the difference between an event that causes serious damage or injury, and one that does not.

Philippine literature in Spanish

1593 to present

(Spanish: Literatura Filipina en Castellano) is a body of literature made by Filipino writers in the Spanish language. Today, this corpus is the third largest in the whole corpus of Philippine literature (Philippine Literature in Filipino being the first, followed by Philippine literature in English). It is slightly larger than the Philippine literature in the vernacular languages. However, because of the very few additions to it in the past 30 years, it is expected that the former will soon overtake its rank.

Francisco Baltazar y dela Cruz (1788-1862)

was the preeminent poet of the Tagalog language and author of the literary masterpiece Florante at Laura. Baltazar is otherwise known as Francisco Balagtas, his original name. He had taken the name Balagtas from a Manila family whom he had served as a houseboy. He was affectionately called Kiko.

Look also about:

Balagtasan

Its name comes from the original surname of Francisco Baltazar, Balagtas, having been created to honor his birth anniversary.

The balagtasan is a debate in poetic verse. It was created during the American Colonization of the Philippines, inspired by old forms of Philippine verse debate like the karagatan, Juego de Prenda and the duplo.
The first balagtasan was held on 6 April 1924. Three sets of poets participated using scripted defenses.

Like The Molave talks about heroes and how they inspire regular Filipinos to be great themselves and join them on the quest to make the Philippines a more prosperous place. The poem states that whilst many Filipinos are achieving great things for their country, there is still much more to be done and more residents must contribute to the efforts. In short, Like The Molave is about inspiring the Filipino nation to improve their country and make it self-sufficient.

This is dedicated to talented amateur writers who contribute literature in Filipino languages. Unfortunately, in many instances, these writers regularly go unheard by the national and international audiences. This website aspires to change this by displaying their works and bringing much needed attention to their works.

Another important goal of this is to also promote indigenous languages of the Philippines and to help save them from the grip hold of language loss or extinction. The idea is to inspire and encourage Filipinos to continue producing magnificent works in their native languages and for people to recognize their talents.

Basilica Del Santo Niño Library

Heeding the wise advice of St. Augustine of Hippo that in every house there should be a library (Possidius 31, 6,8), the Augustinian Friars of the Basilica put up a library in one of the corners of the convent. We don’t exactly know when this library was put up, but it is safe to surmise that it was established when the convent was constructed and completed in 1764.

Libraries in the Philippines

Note: Libraries listed here fall into three categories, namely: Academic Libraries (A-Z), Public Libraries, and Special Libraries.

Academic libraries serve colleges and universities, their students, staff and faculty. Larger institutions may have several libraries on their campuses dedicated to serving particular schools such as law and science libraries.

Public libraries serve the general public, "from cradle to grave". They often have departments that focus on areas of service, such as youth, teens and senior citizens.

Special libraries offer resources and collections in a specialized environment of interest, such as corporations, hospitals, the military, museums, private businesses, and the government. Special libraries can serve particular populations, such as the blind and physically handicapped, while others are dedicated to special collections.

Filipinas Heritage Library website

The Filipinas Heritage Library, a division of the Ayala Foundation, Inc. (AFI), is a one-stop electronic research center on the Philippines. We provide access to the wealth of Filipino heritage through the latest in information technology and telecommunications.

The Library houses over 13,000 contemporary volumes on Philippine history, art, language, religion and the social sciences, and over 2,000 rare titles, rare books on microfiche, maps, and an extensive library of slides and photographs.

It has also ventured into the digitization of its collection, CD-ROM publishing, as well as the development of web pages and electronic databases.

 Oral & Intangible Heritage - the Maranao people - The Darangen

The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge about the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao. This southernmost island of the Philippine archipelago is the traditional homeland of the Maranao, one of the country's three main Muslim groups.

Although other variations exist among the Maranao ethnic communities living in other areas, among the Maguindanao ethnic group, and Manobo groups to the Pacific Coast. The one in Lanao del Sur is considered the most definitive.

This is a segment in the UNFPA 6th Country Programme Video Report which shows the new role of our Traditional kumadrona or hilot. Study showed that, sadly, old practices significantly account for deaths of mothers and/or babies. Thus, our Traditional Hilots or Kumadrona have to be given a new orientation as health partners and are now called Traditional Birth Attendants giving due respect to their role in the community and their age-old knowledge which can still be useful.

Hook-up culture

Dr. Margie Holmes discusses the thrills and perils of the hook-up culture. Published on Aug 30, 2014

A Hook-Up culture is one that accepts and encourages casual sexual encounters as well as casual sexual relationships, one-night stands and other related activity, focusing on physical pleasure without necessarily including emotional bonding or long-term commitment. It is generally associated with Western late adolescent behavior and, in particular, American college culture. The term hook-up has an ambiguous definition because it can indicate kissing or any form of physical sexual activity between sexual partners.

CEBU, Philippines, In a poor shanty in the Central Philippines city of Cebu, a tiny internet café offers broadband connectivity with the outside world. In a place that lacks running water, the opportunities presented by the existence of the internet are boundless. But along with these opportunities are the inherent risks posed by the net. A growing number of youths in the Philippines are being drawn into a dangerous world of sexual exploitation by foreigners they meet online.

Remark: Many of the articles are pdf-files - marked with . If you miss a pdf reader, you can download it HERE.

.....Think of other than yourself.....

We have been married for more than 25 years and having a "network" of foreigner-filipino couples, so we think, we have a good knowledge, so:

First thoughts - advices for both of you before start of dating:

  • FIRST of ALL - IF you are a foreigner, visit Philippines OUTSIDE the tourist places, learn about the life & culture in small cities, municipalities and barangays BEFORE you start a dating, and if you can´t speak ENGLISH, so FORGET everything about dating. Only very very few filipinos can speake more than their own language and English.
  • NEXT - You the foreigner: What do you know about how the rules are for getting an immigrant visa to your fiancee - spouse to your country? Many countries have very special rules, and it can be very difficult to get...... There can be many denials for getting a visa.....Control all the rules in your country before you start a dating!
  • IMPORTANT: Take care not to avoid falling victim to aCatfish” or a "Romance Scams" Look more about that HERE
  • Think about Long Distance Relationship and The Do's and Don'ts on how to survive a Long Distance Relationship
  • Marrying some-one who does not share the same culture with you and grew up with different background in all manners, then it is quite a challenge.
  • Sexuality in Philippines can be much different to sexuality in other countries .... virgin ....
  • What about Children LEFT-BEHIND?
  • How will your families and local societies accept mixed-blood-color children? Think e.g. about the problems for many Amerasians
  • NEXT, don´t think of dating a married person, that will only give problems read about divorce HERE

Thoughts about disabilities:

  • NEXT, think of what kind of problems it will be - give for a relationship, where one or maybe both of you have disabilities of many different kinds, which need a lot of money and maybe do, that you can´t travel??? Look more HERE
  • In most situations, we can´t recommend a dating from a foreigner with disabilities to a filipina, that´s words from our hearts, because many filipina nearly try to run away from poverty, and maybe your girlfriend had hope to get a better life in your country, but would that be possible – better in a situation with maybe a foreigner's hard disability - OR -  maybe – even you - the foreigner - have known her for long time over cyberspace – she know very well that a relationship is impossible, so maybe she just try to use you for getting support….. SCAMS

Thoughts about Why:

  • WHY are you doing it?
  • WHY is the Filipino looking for a spouse abroad? Is she or he knowing anything about the comming foreign country, nature, climate, culture, language etc., OR -- try to read "Flee from Poverty" HERE and Poverty in the Philippines.

SO you - The Filipina - Filipino - HAVE TO MAKE UP  your mind about these:

  • If you are a Filipino - Filipina, so learn so much as possible about the comming country and the life there, best of all if it´s possible, so visit the country, speake with other filipino - filipina in that country and hear from them about the life, religions, laws, climate and ACCEPT of filipinos both in the country and the local area - community, where you maybe will come to live. Take care of countries with "SHARIA LAW"......... NEVER NEVER accept a spouse living after "SHARIA LAW" if you want a life with the HUMAN RIGHTS!
  • Do you know, what Muslims believe about insurance? WARNING - IMPORTANT - WARNING! Read HERE
  • The nature - climate - life - culture - language are maybe MUCH different in the new country, even the "sign of letters" MUCH different.
  • Every Filipina should ask a potential Foreign Pen Pal these questions before agreeing dating with reference to a later marriage & answer these questions to HER from Him. Look the "Questions to HIM and HER" HERE
  • What do you know about be a Balikbayan? Look HERE
  • What do you know about the religion of the comming spouse
  • What do you know about "Violence and Discrimination Affecting Migrant Women and Girls" IMPORTANT: Look and read above "factsheet"

SO you - The foreigner - HAVE TO MAKE UP  your mind about these:

Are you dating for getting SEX? Forget it and find that from your own people and don´t destroy a filipino, who trusted you and hoped for a future!

  • Take care of Romance scams - Marriage scams - via the internet. These are the most common internet fraud types in the Philippines. Look more HERE
  • What do you know about the culture and the different in culture from province to province and language from island to island in Philippines?
  • What do you know about the religion (the catholic) of the comming filipina spouse
  • What do you know about the many tribes in the Philippines, their tradtions and rituals, if you find a partner in one of these?
  • What do you know about Sexuality in the Philippines?
  • Every Filipina should ask a potential Foreign Pen Pal these questions before agreeing dating with reference to a later marriage & answer these questions to HER from Him. Look the "Questions to HIM and HER" HERE
  • WARNING - IMPORTANT - WARNING! Think of the areas with Terrorism & Terrorgroups - Terrorist organizations in the Philippines - Don´t risk to be a part of that because of a "comming family circle"
  • Think about Legal age........Don´t make a Child Marriage....and putting lives at risk!!!!!!
  • Think about and READ the Philippine law "Deportation of Aliens"
  • What do you know about the history of the Philippines?
  • What do you know about family codes & life and traditions in Philippines?
  • Remember that more than 90% of filipinos are Catholics
  • Remember that divorce is not legal in the Philippines, so if....but read about it HERE
  • What do you know about DOs & DONTs in Dating in the Philippines?
  • What do you know about Etiquette in the Philippines?
  • The nature - climate - life - culture - language are maybe MUCH different in your country, even the "sign of letters" MUCH different.
  • What´s the law - rules for residence permission in your country for a comming spouse? Some countries have very strong rules, so control the rules in your country, BEFORE you start a dating!
  • What´s the rules for getting family from Philippines visiting your country?
  • How often will it be possible to go home and visit the family in Philippines - that´s expensive (think of how often you have contact with your family in your country)
  • Marriage for a Filipino means much more, than it does for many foreigners - divorce is not accepted
  • What about adoption of child - children, if the comming spouse already have child - children?
  • What about child - children Left-Behind?
  • If the marriage don´t work, what´s so the situation for the Filipino, what about the residence permission?
  • What about children - maybe adopted, who have got new citizenship - , if the Filipino have to leave your country?
  • Remember, that many countries don´t accept "Dual Citizenship". Are the filipino maybe ready to get only a new citizenship?
  • How will a Filipino be accepted in your family.....Have a serious talk with your family
  • How will your local community react?
  • Are you ready to help with BIG support for the family home in Philippines? So many families need to get support from children living abroad.
  • Maybe the filipino just try to use you - marry you for getting support to the family home AND NOT because of "LOVE to YOU". Many filipina nearly try to run away from the poverty for getting help to the family home.

Thoughts for both of you about Languages - Religion & rituals of Dead, Funeral, Burial etc.:

  • What about the languages in your family after marriage? Try to think..........
  • Maybe the language have quite different "letters" so you don´t understand a word of a written text, and maybe have to sign, a document you don´t understand.... maybe even have to be read in the "wrong" direction.. TAKE CARE of THAT, don´t sign anything, you don´t understand 100 % in your own language.
  • What about religion if you don´t belong to the same, which one will you accept for maybe comming children? What about the Filipino’s wishes?
  • Would you (and your family) accept a spouse practising another religion than yours?
  • Would you (and your family) accept to bring up, educate and keep the children in that religion - church, you and your spouse selected for them from birth untill their Legal age?
  • What do you know about the traditions - rituals of "Death, the Dead, Wake, Funeral, Burial & Mourning, Beliefs, Rituals & Customs - Etc." in both the Philippines culture and the comming "new" country - culture - religion?

Thoughts for both of you about Divorce:

  • If the situation will happen and a marriage don´t work because of ???? so it´s very difficult to get a divorce valid in the Philippines for a filipino citizen, even she - he has got a divorce valid in another country READ HERE

And at last:

WARNING - IMPORTANT - WARNING!

  • If you are a NON-Muslim NEVER - NEVER date a Muslim
  • WARNING - IMPORTANT - WARNING! For a non-Muslim it´s very important to read and hear from other about their experience bad - good in a NON-Muslim - MUSLIM marriage for both them and children, and get accept from own family of such a marriage, before he - she accept dating - marriage. - How will your families and local communities react?  Read more HERE and think many times before... if you are a Non-Muslim - Read also HERE and look video HERE THINK - THINK and THINK!

'Ang yabang mo na!' and other things balikbayans are told
by/Shakira Sison Published Nov 20, 2014

Why do we call balikbayans "mayabang"? Even before they say a word, the difference in their attire, mannerisms, or speech suddenly brands balikbayans as boastful. You came home one day after a few years of living abroad. After the welcome hugs came the comments of who you've become now that you're back from another land.
Overseas Pinoys help when they can, but being abroad where there may be better opportunities does not mean there are no financial struggles. Wearing different clothes or having a different outlook does not make OFWs mayabang (braggart) or hindi na maabot (unreachable). Not raining money on everyone does not make them madamot (selfish).

Look also the article "When OFWs come home"
by/Shakira Sison Published Dec 25, 2014
The OFW will say he or she wants nothing because they can always buy it abroad. The truth is that they'd spend their last money on something that would make someone else smile.

Love on the rebound

In this week's episode of #AskMargie, clinical psychologist Dr. Margie Holmes talks about love on the rebound, and how to move on and avoid being a rebound-er or the reboundee.

Published on Jan 4, 2013

The "rebound" is when a person gets dumped and almost immediately starts dating another person. This other person is said to be the "rebound,". Emotionally, the rebound date is usually to fill a need for affection or attention, or to get the person that did the dumping jealous. Rebounds are always a bad idea.

Hook-up culture

Dr. Margie Holmes discusses the thrills and perils of the hook-up culture. Published on Aug 30, 2014

A Hook-Up culture is one that accepts and encourages casual sexual encounters as well as casual sexual relationships, one-night stands and other related activity, focusing on physical pleasure without necessarily including emotional bonding or long-term commitment. It is generally associated with Western late adolescent behavior and, in particular, American college culture. The term hook-up has an ambiguous definition because it can indicate kissing or any form of physical sexual activity between sexual partners
