Morning Rush 44 (Yaya Quotes)

You're such a loser, Yaya!
Linggo ngayon, araw ng day-off...day-off ng katulong. Madalas sa bubble gang ko lang napapanood at naririnig ang katagang "You're such a loser yaya!" ng spoiled brat na si Angelina, pero ngayon pati pala sa hapon mapapanood mo na siya at nag ho-host pa (sa hole in the wall - isang walang ka kwenta kwentang show lols). Sa totoo lang against ako sa spoiled brat na iyan! kung sa bubble gang lang sana siya pinapalabas gabing gabi na iyon tulog na sana ang mga bata at tulog na ang ilang bibong chikiting. Ang sinasabi ko lang bakit nila pinopromote iyang si Angelina? okey nakakatawa pero ginagaya tuloy siya ng mga bata at isip bata. "Yaya! gusot gusot ang pinalantsa mo! you're such a loser talaga!" Tigilan na ang angelinang iyan! Di magandang impluwensiya sa mga batang tulad ko!. Tapos may pelikula pang ipapalabas si yaya at angelina, pero I must admit napakagaling na komedyante at aktor nitong si Michael V at Ogie. Commento lang po!

Matapos nating pagtawanan ang ilang yaya/inday jokes, Seryoso naman tayo. Tao din naman sila, respeto ang kailangan nila.
Treat others the way you want to be treated". Some of the tips which might also help are:
  • Day-Offs -have a very considerate in this aspect, she can take weekend day-offs or long holiday offs provided wala kang overtime or lakad. This way, you have your own bonding time alone with your kids. But ofcourse, set guidelines on her scheduled offs, overnight stays, long vacation and expected arrival date.
  • Tokens -apart from the sahod, give her tokens such as small bonus money during special occasions (bday, xmas, etc) or little something like coin purse, tshirt, etc.
  • CellPhones- allow usage of cellphones, for as long as it will not interfere with her job. If you see that it is already affecting her chores, sitahin mo agad sya with authority but not in a rude way.
  • Meal Time - have the same meal time, kung kasya kayo sa isang table at walang bisita, sama sama kayong kumain, sabay sabay.
  • Respect - treat her with respect, the same way you want to be treated. Always remind your kids to give respect to their yaya/maid also. Don't tolerate angil or taray by my kids.
  • Listen to their opinions - don't shun your maids when she has something to say or if she has suggestions. Intently listen to her and weigh things, but ofcourse at the end of the day. It is still your call and decision which will prevail.
  • Room for Improvement - enroll her in a computer hardware vocational course. When she graduated, tell her she can go find a new job, provided she will find a replacement for her.
Maids or yayas should be treated well, most of the times our kids are left under their care. Show them respect and care and for sure this will reflect on their chores and treatment with your kids.
The Tagalog word for 'maid' is katulong, which literally means 'helper.' (The Tagalog word for 'help' is tulong.) In the Philippines, live-in maids are common among the upper classes and are considered part of the family.


Filipina maids follow instructions well. But bear in mind that because they are from a different culture, you have to make clear to them what you want them to do.


An Asian lady once complained : "Do you know what my Filipina maid did when I told her to cook the fish? She marinaded it! Who would think of marinading fish before cooking?" It's a cultural thing. There are "common sense" things that you've always assumed as natural or unnatural, but really aren't universal.


Cash may be incentive enough for some, but the best way to ensure that your Filipina maid does a good job is to show your concern for her. Often ask if she's eaten, check if there's a problem, ask if she's fine, bring her a souvenir from your trip — these are considered thoughtful gestures by Filipinos and will make her feel good about helping you out.

Survivor Tocantins (Sole Survivor)

James “JT” Thomas Jr. was awarded the $1 million prize on Survivor Tocantins over Stephen Fishbach in a 7-0 vote.


Season 18 Finale: I Trust You But I Trust Me More
Stephen, JT, Erinn and Taj return to camp after voting out Coach at Tribal Council. “One in four shot at a million dollars!” Stephen celebrates. Stephen points out that JT voting for Erinn instead of Coach will make him look like the villain. “It got you a lot of jury votes,” says JT. Stephen denies this and instead, accuses JT of making Stephen look bad in the eyes of the jury since he ultimately betrayed Coach by lying to him. “I need to think about who I want to be there at the end with…who can I beat at the end,” Stephen reveals.

STAYING IN THE GAME
The next morning, as the remaining Forza members awaken, JT is mesmerized at how his original tribe emerged victorious. “We were supposed to be gone a long time ago and to come over here outnumbered and now be three-to-one, and the entire jury is Timbira, I mean it’s a masterpiece,” marvels JT. Meanwhile, Stephen and Taj contemplate voting out JT if he loses immunity. “Better him than me,” says Stephen.

JT and Erinn check treemail, which includes a plastic spider. Erinn reads treemail to her tribe, and vows to win immunity at the next challenge. “I would definitely like to win immunity today, otherwise it could very well be me going home,” says Erinn.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: TARANTULA
The final four arrive on their mat, which is the middle of a giant tarantula-shaped obstacle course. Host Jeff Probst explains the rules of the challenge. Each person will race through a tarantula-shaped obstacle course to three different stations where they will retrieve a bag of puzzle pieces from each. Once all three bags have been collected, they will use those puzzle pieces to solve a web-shaped puzzle. The first person to get it right wins immunity.

The castaways race off into different netted legs of the tarantula. JT is the first to retrieve a bag of puzzle pieces, and races out to retrieve his second. The other three tribe members struggle to maneuver through the course, while JT continues to collect his bags of puzzle pieces. At one point, JT actually crawls over Taj when they find themselves in the same leg of the tarantula. Stephen catches up and retrieves his first and second bags while JT begins working on his puzzle. Stephen eventually collects all three bags of puzzle pieces and begins working on his puzzle along side JT. Taj finally makes it to the puzzle stage of the challenge, followed by Erinn in last place. As JT gets closer to finishing his puzzle, Erinn makes a miraculous comeback and catches up with JT. In the end, JT completes his puzzle only seconds ahead of Erinn. JT wins immunity, guaranteeing him a spot in the final three.

LAST CHANCE
Upon returning to camp after the immunity challenge, Erinn, the last of the original Timbira Tribe, makes a suave final attempt to stay in the game. “I don’t want to make it seem as though I’m scrambling,” says Erinn. Erinn meets with Stephen and JT in the river and pleads her case. Erinn states that Taj has a very good chance of winning jury votes if she were to make it to the final two. Stephen and JT contemplate voting out Taj for these reasons and consider taking Erinn with them instead, since she would also be much easier to go up against in the next immunity challenge. “As long as me and you are solid, I don’t give a damn what we do, man,” JT says to Stephen. The duo returns to the fire pit and reassures Taj that they are voting out Erinn. “We’re not sure what we’re gonna do tonight, but Stephen and I are gonna stick together in every decision we make,” says JT before walking out to Tribal Council.

TRIBAL COUNCIL
At Tribal Council, Stephen reveals Jalapao’s game plan of sticking together and systematically voting out the remaining Timbira members. Erinn admits that she would not be surprised if the pattern continues and she is the next to go. Stephen scrambles when Jeff Probst puts him on the spot by asking him if his decision tonight will be based on Coach’s philosophy of taking the best to the end. Stephen is caught off-guard and ultimately reveals that he will base his vote on how to better assure him a spot in the finals. In the end, JT and Stephen went against their original tribe and voted out Taj. With three out of the four votes cast against her, Taj Johnson-George, the 37-year old former pop star from Nashville, Tennessee, became the thirteenth person voted out and sixth member of the jury of SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS: THE BRAZILIAN HIGHLANDS.

A HARD VOTE
The final three return to camp after Tribal Council. JT admits that the decision to vote out Taj was not an easy one. He begins to regret his decision almost immediately when Erinn proceeds to annoy everyone with her non-stop chatter. Stephen clearly has the same feelings as JT when he reflects on being in the final three. “It’s definitely tainted by the fact that we voted out Taj, and that hurts, and also just Erinn just chattering away and that’s annoying and totally ignorant of any sort of emotional turmoil that JT and I are going through,” says Stephen.

RITES OF PASSAGE
The next morning, Erinn forms a pact with Stephen to take him to the final two if either of them wins immunity. “He’s gonna fight like hell to win today,” says Erinn. “We too must fight like hell to win,” replies Stephen. Faced with a difficult decision should JT not win immunity, Stephen struggles to decide whether he should stay true to his word and take JT to the finals, or do what should guarantee him a million dollars by taking Erinn.

Later that morning, Stephen and JT vow to stick together until the end no matter what. They shake hands and wait in excitement for the upcoming challenge. “One of us is gonna win that million dollars, and they’re gonna have to decide between me and you,” says JT. Stephen, Erinn and JT then check treemail, which explains that each of them must cross the river where they will find the torches of their fallen comrades. At each torch they will collect a representative idol of those who were voted out before them. At the end of the journey, they will burn them to pay their respects and will then proceed to their final immunity challenge.

The final three make their way to the top of a mountain where they pay their respects to each of the castaways that had been voted out. After all of the representative idols have been collected, they burn them in a small fire pit and prepare themselves for the final immunity challenge. “There’s no reason why I’ll lose this challenge and it’s gonna take an act of Congress to get me to step down from anything…I mean, I won’t. My body will have to fail me,” says JT.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: SIMMOTION
The final three make their way to the final immunity challenge and arrive on their mat. Host Jeff Probst explains the rules of the challenge. Each person must place a ball in a chute, where it will spiral downward until it drops out of the bottom, where it must be caught and placed back in the chute. Every few minutes, another ball must be added. The balls will alternately fall out of the left and then the right side of the chute, making it more difficult to keep track of which side they will exit from. Each ball must be caught before it hits the ground. As soon as someone allows one of their balls to hit the ground, that person is out of the challenge. In a final twist, Jeff reveals that one hand will be tied behind their back to make things more difficult. The last person standing wins immunity.

The challenge begins using one ball, which everyone gets through with ease. Jeff then orders another ball to be added. All three castaways seem to get the hang of it until a third ball is added. Erinn drops a ball and is out of the challenge. JT and Stephen now battle it out for a guaranteed spot in the final Tribal Council. A fourth ball is added, ramping things up. Stephen slips up and drops a ball, granting JT final immunity.

THE FINAL DECISION
Back at camp, Stephen expresses utter relief that JT won immunity instead of himself because it saved him from having to make the difficult decision of who to take to the finals. Erinn probes JT to see who he is leaning towards taking to the finals, and makes a case against Stephen. She reveals that Stephen made a promise to her to take her to the finals if JT lost immunity. “You would be the more logical person to take…no doubt about it,” JT admits to Erinn.

Stephen begins to worry as Tribal Council draws nearer, and questions JT regarding his decision. “Why take a gamble on me when he can have a lock with Erinn?” ponders Stephen. JT struggles with the dilemma of taking Stephen, his ally and friend since Day One, or Erinn, who would be a better person to guarantee him the million-dollar prize. “If I was to lose because of that decision I made, I think everybody would be pretty disappointed in me,” says JT.

TRIBAL COUNCIL
At Tribal Council, Erinn describes her earlier pitch to JT, in which she argued that JT would have a much better shot going up against her in the final two instead of Stephen. Stephen’s defense is that he and JT have had long-term commitments to each other that were founded on the first day of the game. JT admits that both Stephen and Erinn have made legitimate cases, and he is faced with a predicament either way. Stephen becomes fearful and mentions that JT has made serious promises to him, and he would be severely disappointed if JT went against his word. Ultimately, JT stuck to his word and voted out Erinn, bringing his longtime friend, Stephen, to the end as promised. Erinn Lobdell, the 26 year-old hairstylist from Waukesha, Wisconsin, became the fourteenth person voted out and seventh member of the jury of SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS: THE BRAZILIAN HIGHLANDS.

THE FINAL TWO
As the sun rises on Day 39, JT and Stephen celebrate making it to the end. “Stephen is here with me just like we planned a long time ago. It’s kinda hard to believe,” says JT. The two check treemail and are awarded an abundance of breakfast food including eggs, sausages, pancakes, and orange juice. After devouring the meal, they open a bottle of champagne and toast to making it to Day 39. “Tastes like victory,” laughs Stephen. The duo reveals what their surprising first impressions of each other were. “In spite of our completely different backgrounds, our minds seemed to totally work in sync,” says Stephen. With the final Tribal Council on the horizon, JT and Stephen vow to put their friendships aside as they plead their cases for a million dollars. “I am not going out without a fight,” Stephen pledges.

FINAL TRIBAL COUNCIL
At the final Tribal Council, JT and Stephen give their opening statements. Stephen is quick to point out that, although he is not an outdoorsman or athlete, he has transformed into a better person having gone through this experience and improved on his survival skills. JT bluntly admits that he could have easily won against Erinn in the final Tribal Council but, instead, did the noble thing and took Stephen with him.

The jury addresses Stephen and JT, asking them vital questions to help them decide who is the most worthy of the million-dollar prize. As the questions get tougher, JT and Stephen begin to turn against each other. Stephen’s defense is that, despite his physical weaknesses, he outwitted the other tribe members to get himself as far as he did. JT professes that he was a natural leader, provider, and outstanding physical competitor. Debbie brings up an interesting point when she asks Stephen if he would have taken JT with him had he won immunity. Stephen stumbles on the question, but finally reveals that he is afraid that he would have brought Erinn with him instead. Sierra lashes out at JT for taking weak players with him to the end. “That just might be your downfall and the reason why you’re not getting a million dollars,” Sierra snaps. Stephen is devastated when JT lashes out, saying that he did not need Stephen to get him as far as he did. The final jury member, Taj, becomes emotional as she asks her two closest allies why they turned on her. While JT apologizes, Stephen attacks JT for wanting to take out Taj because she had a better chance at winning the final immunity challenge over Erinn. This comment prompts an argument between JT and Stephen, ending with JT asking Stephen whether or not he would have taken Erinn with him to the finals instead of JT had he won immunity. Stephen dismisses the question. “I just feel like a fool, man,” says JT, shaking his head.

Having given the final two a chance to plead their case, the jury members cast their votes for the winner. Host Jeff Probst reads the votes live from New York City, and with x out of the seven votes cast for him, James "J.T." Thomas of Alabama won the title of Sole Survivor and the million dollar prize for SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS: THE BRAZILIAN HIGHLANDS.
As far as the outcome of the show, I was not surprised. Having sat in on the final tribal council it seemed pretty clear at the time that JT would win. I didn’t expect it would be a total sweep but I think Stephen did himself in when he admitted he wouldn’t have taken JT to the end. Stephen would have been foolish to take JT if given the choice. JT knew that and it poured the “pretend shock and hurt” on thick trying to garner jury votes. It worked.

Final Tribal Councils are quite tricky because the jury is almost always very upset that they are not in the final and so they are looking to get the last word in edgewise. Stephen was a sitting duck next to JT.


No, I don’t feel sorry for Stephen. He played a very good game, but JT deserved to win. In fact, I’d go further and say that JT is one of the best overall players ever to play Survivor. He has it all and he has to come back if there is ever another All-Star season.

i am ninoy

I am a Hero.
I do what I believe is Right.
I do what I believe is Good.
I fight for Justice.
I fight for Freedom.
iamninoy.









There is a Ninoy in all of us. And after 25 years, it’s time we play our part. Everytime you buy an iamninoy item from our retail partners, a portion of its sale goes to various national charities that work for justice, freedom and the well-being of our countrymen.

Welcome to iamninoy. I registered myself to this campaign. I am now a part of a community that believes in the ideals of Ninoy and have the same strength and spirit to fight for freedom, justice and change.

Let the Filipino pride come alive again!
Help uplift the lives of our countrymen who continue to live in hopelessness
because this is what it means to be today's true Filipino hero.

Reposted from iamninoy.com
The year 2008 marks the 25th death anniversary of the martyred national hero Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. In tribute, the Benigno S. Aquino Jr., Foundation (BSAF), together with friends and supporters, will hold a year-long celebration of his life and legacy through a campaign entitled: iamninoy

The core message of the Campaign is the selfless giving of the best of ourselves for our countrymen and women and the advancement of the country as a whole. Hence, the campaign is designed to create innovative mechanisms and systems for the participation of corporate brands and their customers in schemes that contribute to causes and projects that enhance the welfare of the poor and marginalized Filipinos.

Concretely,

Our corporate campaign partners commit to manufacture and sell iamninoy goods and/or services as part of their participation in this campaign. In turn, BSAF grants our corporate partner the non-exclusive and non-transferable usage of the iamninoy brand and logo in the marketing and selling of their Goods & Services.
For the privilege of the grant of this usage, our corporate partner commits to donate a portion or a percentage of the income from the sales of its iamninoy goods and/or services during the campaign period to a worthy cause of their choosing in their name and that of the iamninoy Campaign. The Campaign will run for a year beginning August 21, 2008.
The public as consumer is also an integral part of the Campaign. By purchasing iamninoy items from the Campaign's retail partners during the Campaign period they are directly supporting important national causes and projects. In fact, they may directly choose a beneficiary supported by the campaign and then identify the company that is giving to their chosen cause.
The primary target audience of this Campaign is the youth who were either too young to remember Ninoy Aquino and what he stood for or were not yet born during that period. The Campaign hopes to engage the youth to learn about the values Ninoy stood for and to continue his legacy for generations to come.

The iamninoy brand concept has been developed with multi-awarded advertising agency McCann Erickson to ensure that the Campaign will appeal to today's youth.
