Labor Day '09

It's Labour Day! It was supposed to be a holiday but most of us, call center agents, still are obliged to work today. We received a lot of calls and it was pretty tiring. But the truth is, no matter how stressful our day went today, it really doesn't matter because the thought of getting double pay definitely brightened our day.

Labor Day is as usual rally day here in the Philippines. With too much going on in our country lately, a lot of people protest about all sorts of things. But today, rallies are focused mainly on wage increase. If my father is still alive, I'm pretty sure he's one of those protesters who parade on the streets. Fighting for the rights of the workers.


Today, the local government also held job fairs on some parts of the country for the increasing numbers of unemployed citizens. I hope there will be enough jobs for millions of them!

To those on vacation, enjoy the rest of the day!

Happy First of May and Happy Birthday to my beautiful Aunt Rose who is Lainy's mom! May you have many more birthdays to come! God bless! I love you Tita!!!

It is a great pity that this is not universal the world over. In England we call it May Day ... traditionally a time when children dances with ribbons joined to a maypole. The dance would make complicated plaited designs as the girls and boys skipped in and out holding their ribbons and going around and around the pole. We do have a celebration bank holiday but this is taken on the first Monday after the 1st of May ... so we are on holiday on Monday 4th May!!!

I am sorry that you haven't had your holiday ...
