A new hide for this cow

I found my way to the blogosphere exactly a year ago on 24 January 2008. Being a new Overseas Filipino Worker then, I was so irked by Memorandum Circular No. 4 (MC No. 4) issued by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) that I had to vent out lest suffer a heart attack. Having very few friends in Hong Kong that time, I decided to publish my frustrations on this issue via WordPress. After a few more posts on the same topic and a dozen or so comments from Filipinos who are scattered around the world, I discovered the therapeutic effects of blogging. Posting my thoughts on WordPress has kept me sane in this foreign land for the past one year. I hope other OFWs would discover this delight as well. Working far and away from your loved ones is really difficult if you don’t know how to deal with it.

Initially, I thought blogging would just be another one of those ningas cogon ventures I am notorious at taking. Ningas cogon is a Filipino figure of speech that roughly translates to “good at the start, but cannot follow through or finish.” But here I am with my 1st year anniversary post. This cash cow is still alive and mooing! Not so bad for an inexperienced writer huh?

…So to mark this humble achievement of mine, I have changed the theme and header of Milking the Cash Cow. I hope you like the alteration. Thus, I bid goodbye to the old format:

...sapagkat ang gobyerno natin ay may "cash cow mentality" pagdating sa mga Overseas Filipino Workers.

(Read On "Milking the Cash Cow")

...sapagkat ako ay isa ring OFW; may mithiin, marunong magisip at nagnanais marinig... Makabagong bayani daw... Sa totoo'y tampok na gatasan ng pamahalaan. (English)
