FRESH from his Qatar visit, OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration) Deputy Administrator USEC Arnell Ignacio shared this on his FB account:
“The New Labor Minister of Qatar Yousef Bin Mohammed Al Othman Fakroo surprised me with a visit . After kamustahan moments he expressed that with the upcoming FIFA tournament in 2022, Qatar will be needing more workers in the skilled sector. In less than an hour of exchanging views about our labor industry, so much were discussed that will certainly bring in more good news in the coming days.
“On a personal level, I am deeply touched by this gesture of the good minister of friendship to the extent of even setting aside protocols. Isang karangalang habambuhay kong pagiingatan at pagyayamanin.”
Doing a good turn daily with his trips to see the welfare of our heroes abroad.
ANOTHER ONE from th hubby of FDCP Chairman Liza Diño Seguerra, Ice:
“Maybe I need to come out quarterly dito sa Facebook.
“Dear Family and Friends,
“I am a TRANSGENDER MAN. Ibig sabihin, pinanganak man akong may vagina, I identify myself as a man. Gets? TRANSMAN po yun. May ilang taon na rin ang nakakalipas when I first came out. Yes, I came out as transman 3 times already. May iba siguro sa inyo ang hindi pa nakakaalam but mas maraming alam na ‘to.
“This is just a reminder. PLEASE REFRAIN from calling me ATE, MISS, TITA, SIS, NINANG (mga inaanak, subukan niyong tawagin akong ninang, I swear wala kayong regalo sa pasko), SENYORA, MA’AM, at ang favorite ko sa lahat MADAME. Huwag din po gamitin ang she, her, at kung ano pa.
“This is how I see myself and I would appreciate if people around me, especially family and friends, will respect that. If you do not understand kung ano ang transman, PM me and I will gladly explain.
“Also, please CALL ME ICE.
“Yun lang po. Maraming salamat!”
Mahirap ba’ng intindihin ‘yun?
ALL ROADS lead to the MMFF 2018 (Metro Manila Film Festival Festivities).
One not to be missed is the love story featuring Kim Chiu, Dennis Trillo and JC de Vera.
“One Great Love” is one kind of love which they say is hard to find and yet most of the time is right before your eyes.
Regal Films Entertainment trusted Enrico Santos to bring out the best in the three actors from the two networks.
Says Direk Eric, “Hindi ako nahirapan at hindi nila ako pinahirapan, especially Kim. Parang siya na nga ang producer ko, eh. Kasi, alam na niya all her requirements. Pagdating sa set nagsa-suggest pa siya when it comes to her character. I wouldn’t be able.to shoot her daring love scenes kung hindi rin siya lumabas from her comfort zone. She knew her limitations which I was aware naman. But from those limitations, she was able to work around it na hindi maaapektuhan what is required of her to give in the scenes. Maninibago ang fans niya, yes kasi nga their idol is taking it to a higher level. Na ikatutuwa naman nila.”
Direk took the part of Kim’s father in the movie.
“Maikli lang naman ang eksena. Do, para ‘di na mahirapan ang production na mamili pa ng magiging tatay ni kim, pareho naman kaming tsinito, sabi ko ako na lang.”
There are things to learn about the love that existed in the life of the three characters.
Have you met your one great love? How do you know if it’s the one-the great love?
