SAUDI ARABIA: Lifted Ban on Household Service Worker (HSW)

SAUDI ARABIA: Lifted Ban on Household Service Worker (HSW) 

Good news to HSW wanting to work in Saudi Arabia because beginning October 1, 2012, the Saudi Arabian government decided to lift the ban on the hiring of Filipino household service workers (HSW's).

If you can recall, the Saudi Arabian government stopped processing, verifying and authenticating applications from the Philippines domestic workers following disagreements in wages last July 2011.

Saudi Arabia government agreed to grant the following to our HSW:
  • The domestic workers to get a minimum monthly salary of $400 or a minimum salary of SR1,500 (around P17,000) that must be transferred to a worker’s bank account every month
  • A weekly day off
  • 30-day annual holiday
  • health insurance ( In case of  the employer will be the one to pay for the HSW's hospitalization bill.)
  • end of service benefits. 
  • employers must bear all fees related to visa, residence and arrival and departure. 
  • Contracts should also stipulate that maids can only work in a single household and may transfer their sponsorship at will. 
The responsibilities of recruitment agencies to the workers as well as the latter’s benefits are clearly stipulated in their employment contracts. 
The department of labor are hoping that there will be no contract violations such as:
  •  contract substitutions
  •  maltreatment 
  •  abuses in terms of salaries
  •  abuses on work hours 
  •  employers confiscating the passports of workers because the employment contract also states that passports should be in the possession of the workers.

Gangnam Style 2012: Cebu inmates Dance

Cebu inmates dance Gangnam Style 2012

Due to insistent public demand, the world renowned dancing inmates of Cebu had their own version of Psy's Gangnam Style music video.

Despite the heavy rain last September 29, 2012
afternoon, thousands of inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) entertained guests with their ecstatic adoption of the Guinness World Record holder for the "Most Liked in YouTube".

This is part of their rehabilitation program inside the jail. Not all of them are hardened criminals. I know that it is hard to rehearse and make them dance simultaneously. So congratulations to everyone in Cebu especially to the prison's director and staff.

To the kids out there, you can shine better in the outside world so please don't wish to be a part of them inside the penitentiary. Please don't have the wrong notion to do criminal acts just to be a part of the Cebu inmates.

Do good and stay good.

God bless everyone!

FAMAS: Best Actress Award Goes to Anne Curtis

Everybody's favorite actress Anne Curtis won her first Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Best Actress Award in ceremonies held Tuesday night at Manila Hotel.

The Kapamilya star received her trophy for playing one of the lead roles in the box-office hit “No Other Woman". Anne bested the likes of Angel Locsin, Kris Aquino, and Cristine Reyes for the best actress category. Bongga! Congrats Anne!
In one of her Instagram posts on Wednesday, Anne said, “Dreams do come true. Thank you FAMAS for making that dream come true last night. Best Actress for No Other Woman. Mama, this is for you @carmcurtissmith YOU will forever be the BEST dramatic actress in the world for me. I love you.”

She thanked also the board members and jurors for choosing her as the best actress. 

Plus she also thanked “No Other Woman” director Ruel Bayani for “guiding me to be the best OTHER WOMAN I could be.”

“I’m so happy I was under your wing and guidance whilst portraying the role as Kara Zalderiaga. There is No Other Director like YOU. Love you. Thank you!” she added.

Anne spread the cheer to her over 3.4 million Twitter followers, saying, “I tell you, dreams really do come true. Just have the patience, push yourself a little extra in everything that you do and have HOPE. It’s up to you to take that step closer to pursue your own dreams.”

Anne Curtis won her first Best Actress award at the 34th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) for the period drama “Baler.” She was also named Best Supporting Actress at the 29th Luna Awards for “In Your Eyes.” Just this year, she tied with Angel Locsin for Best Actress at the 14th Gawad Pasado Awards.

Angelica thanked Derek and her other friends for their congratulatory greetings.
