Filipina Writer says Overseas Filipino Workers smell like air fresheners and other discriminating comments. This is the start of a campaign to boycott The Manila Standard and People Asia Magazine, until they issue apologies and Malu Fernandez is fired! The issue is about bigotry and discrimination in The Philippines.
Lets DIGG it!
Is Morality independent of what God says? Or our morality depends on what God says? Heres my take on this.
I usually do this when i’m faced with confusion, so im not near doing haste decision that ends up with more confusions. Though its hard to be silent for all the things and there will be a time i should speak up to clear up things. Sometimes i dont talk for days.

Ganito naba talaga ang kababaw nyang tingin sa mga OFW? lahat ba naka AXE at Charlie cologne? or ilagay nating lahat OFW ganito cologne nila eh anong paki nya? eh porket isa syang elitista na kaya nyang bilhin kahit anong klasing magagarang cologne ay pde nyang bilhin. Mahiya ka sa sarili mo Malu Fernandez! isang mahaderang matapobre sa OFWs!

Retana dated March 19, 1897) Obra publicada en Madrid en 1667, y que ahora con la colaboracion del P. Pablo Pastells de la misma Compania, Saca Nuevamente A Luz W. E. Retana. Madrid: Viuda de M.

This is the common greetings of Muslim around the globe. Here in the Philippines, non-muslim thought its just a local language but its not. This greeting is an Arabic language.
As-Sal?mu `Alaykum (?????? ?????) is an Arabic language greeting used in both Muslim and Christian cultures. It means “Peace be upon you.” It is also transliterated as Assalamu ‘Alaikum or As-salaamu Alaikum. The traditional response is “wa `Alaykum As-Sal?m“, meaning “and on you be peace.”
This type of greeting is common in the Middle East; it is similar to the Hebrew greeting of shalom aleichem. (Wikipedia)
Did you know that Assalamu Alaikum is a simple prayer?
Everytime you greet somebody, you are wishing that his day will turn out the best in every way.
To all my blog readers – Assalamu Alaikum!
