Chile's Miners Rescue

Posted by Cielo at 11:20 AM 1 comments

The world has been a witness of the miners rescue trapped in Chile under 2,000 feet of rock to the surface. The 33 miners have bravely endured 70 days of being isolated and trapped down under. The long wait of the family was worth it. Though it takes time to rescue them, the plan was carried out strategically and logistically prepared thus not compromising the lives of the trapped miners. I had seen the outline of their rescue plan and I do admire them for incorporate “Twice-daily prayer sessions” in their daily tasks.

The world has been in awed and inspired by the rescue operation. It was a manifestation of hard work, team work and strategic planning. The support of the Chilean government has been a valuable help in the rescue operation. Based on the live telecast of the Chilean miner’s rescue, Philippines and other countries have lots to learn from them.

I noticed that following that we can take lessons from:

- Few people needed on site are allowed at the rescue areas, families of the miners being rescued and part of the rescue teams, a few medias and some important government officials.
- There were no grandstanding of government officials or other entities taking credit of the rescue.
- They are well-equipped thus they know where their taxes go. The rescuers are provided with proper safety gears like: work boots, overalls and rain gear.
- Apart from the logistics - Planning and unity is the key

What is also admirable is their government’s effort to take care of their miners for at least six months or until they have readjusted.

The Sad State of Employment in The Philippines

Posted by Cielo at 11:27 PM 1 comments

It is very said to note that there are many college graduates who are unemployed and under employed. This is a indicator that the economy is not doing well. Here in the Philippines because of this problems on labor and employment – many Filipinos opted to work abroad to seek for greener pasture abroad. Overseas Foreign Worker (OFW) are seeking for opportunities outside of the country because of the scarcity of jobs. “Unemployment” and “under-employment” are just one of the labor and employment problems in the Philippines.

Wikipedia definition:
“Unemployment occurs when a person is available and willing to work but currently without work.”

“Underemployment describes the employment of workers with high skill levels in low-wage jobs that do not require such abilities.”

I know of someone who graduated with a degree in Management who settled in Singapore to work as a bartender instead of being employed in a management jobs. It is very sad to realize that being a graduate from a business degree does not guarantee you with a business management jobs.

Nowadays, many high school students have turned to be more practical. They are taking a course in Nursing or other medical field hoping that one day they can land a healthcare management jobs abroad.

You can just imagine the current state of the labor forve here in our country. If the college graduates find difficulty in finding a decent job under his skill set, how much more the undergraduates.

Stroller for Our Little One

Posted by Cielo Pagcaliwagan at 1:04 PM 0 comments

Of course money matters especially in this economic crisis but being a Mom myself; we just cannot compromise the safety of our dear baby. Before buying for a baby stroller, we must also be practical especially now that we are in an economic crisis, yet we must be sure that our baby is in good hands.

I had read several stroller reviews over the Internet and I chanced upon a good product which values stroller safety. Stroller.Com offers a variety of stroller brands for different functionalities. The products being offered ranges from reasonably priced (Strollers under $100) to $4000 and up. Apart from that I find the online store as an honest to goodness business since they also included in their site a section for baby strollers and equipment which were already recalled in the market and the reason why it was called off.

At Stroller.Com – you can shop depending on your preferred model, mobility, brand, cost and functionality.

As a parent I know that we will give everything to our little angels. Moms will surely be happy buying a stroller for their kids. Although we must get the value for our money, safety can never ever be a compromise and should never be an issue.

Online Shopping of Anything a Girl Loves

Posted by Cielo Pagcaliwagan at 3:46 PM 0 comments

Practically almost any Metro girl has her own fetish for bags, shoes, belts and just about any other girly stuff that you can think of. Here in the Philippines and even Asia wide many online stores offering such items has proliferated in the internet. Some use the power of social networking such as multiply and facebook, other offer stuffs in online shopping portals like ebay,, while others would really go their way to start their own online website. This is similar to what the shop owner of Best HandBag Whole Sale does.

The online shop offer a whole wide range of wholesale handbags, wholesale belts, wholesale flip flops and many other wholesale stuffs. When we say wholesale – the price is relatively low but definitely the quality is at par. The shop has been in the internet online shopping arenas for 6 years now and has already proven its track record in providing girly stuffs to boutiques, retail shops. I just hope that there will also be similar online shop here in the Philippines offering wholesale price to online shop owners like me. This concept of offering wholesale stuffs online is a good business idea.
I see their design to be modern Mediterranean inspired. For bag hags like me it is just sad that unfortunately, the shop is not offering shipment internationally.
