Cynthia Villar's answer to question about the Filipino nurses is now a record holder for accumulating millions of haters in just a minute. She is in real trouble and might affect her Senatorial candidacy big time. She irked a lot of Nurses for "generalizing them as a room nurse (caregiver)" on a debate question with only 30 seconds time limit which is “too short’” for her to explain further on the issue.
Mrs Villar's answer just showed that she has limited knowledge about the nurses working or migrated to other countries primarily as nurses and not just a "room nurse". Her carelessness in front of many viewers was offensive and insulting to the nurses who spent a lot of money and time studying, spending sleepless nights for 5 years just to earn a degree for a better life.
I will cancel my work visa and I plan to come back immediately in Qatar on family visit visa to be with my husband. Ayoko na pong mag-exit and pumunta ng Pilipinas, instead I want to exit going to Morocco or Singapore and come back to Qatar from there after I get a print out of my family visit visa kasi ayoko ng maraming cheche boreche sa immigration sa NAIA and ayoko ng magpatatak ng visa sa Qatar Embassy sa Manila. Meron na po bang nakaexperience ng ganitong scenario? Possible po ba na gawin ko ito? Maraming salamat po. Mabuhay!
A restaurant in Beijing displays its sentiment toward the citizens of the Philippines, Vietnam and Japan with which China has territorial issues in the West Philippine Sea and the Sea of Japan. The sign says Japanese, Filipinos, Vietnamese and dogs are barred from the restaurant, presumably in that order. AFP
HANOI—A sign at a Beijing restaurant barring citizens of nations involved in maritime disputes with China — along with dogs — has triggered a wave of online outrage among Vietnamese and Filipinos.
The Beijing Snacks restaurant near the Forbidden City, a popular tourist spot, has posted a sign on its door reading “This shop does not receive the Japanese, the Philippines, the Vietnamese and dog(s).”

It was an absolutely stunning ending to an all-action war.
More Pinoy students will get a chance to learn French in public schools and become more "globally competitive," the Department of Education (DepEd) said, as it announced a renewed partnership with the French Embassy.
A new memorandum of agreement has been signed to continue French as a second foreign language and as an elective offered to some high schools including one in Mindanao, the DepEd said in a statement.
This, as it touted the success of an agreement signed in 2009 which has so far benefitted more than 1,500 students in public high schools in Metro Manila and Central Visayas (Region VII).
