When There Is Nothing Left, There Is Always Hope.

Image from:
It has been almost three weeks since Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan ravaged Central Philippines.

Ravage is the closest word. Destroyed doesn't even cut it. The damage wrought by the Super Typhoon is truly unimaginable - and it is! Its strength was unseen by people who had lived for the past few decades - all over the world.

Three weeks since, it has been discovered that thousands have been killed by it, and every day turns up with more. There is a lack of food, water, shelter - all the basic needs of man - lacking in so many ways.

But if there is one thing that is always abundant in the Filipino heart, that is HOPE.

I Was A Call Center Girl - And I'm Proud of It!

I've been wanting to do a blog post about this for so long, pero laging napo-postpone kasi ang dami kong gustong sabihin, pero yung kamay ko ayaw na mag-type. So when I was taking a break from work earlier, browse browse ako ng forums and shared stuff on my newsfeed. Naalala ko yung isang blog post about the call center industry being belittled - and naalala ko na naman din ang feelings ko towards this.

Sa totoo lang, I take offense when people always attach the word 'LANG' sa call center industry or sa call center agents.  As in emosyonal talaga ako pag nakakarinig or nakakabasa ako ng not-so-nice comments about the work I used to do, or the industry that I used to be part of.

Bitstrips. I looove Bitstrips (check out my profile photo on the right side. Hehe. Yan talaga ako!)! Pero hindi yan ang point ng quickie post na ito.
