The message of the story of The Young Thief and His Mother is somehow similar to that of The Trees and The Axe. Let us read the story, please.
This mother went back to work-away-from-home come August 2019. My mom got an office and hired me as an Accounts Support. So every day, after tending to the needs of the boys and cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner – we head to the office. My four-year-old and two-year-old boys also go with me. They have a small room at the office where they can play, watch tv, and even sleep.
Since we went back to work, one of the adjustments we did was pamamalengke. Unlike before when we do our palengke every Monday, now, we do our shopping every Sunday. And we have to wake up real early to get fresh vegetables and meat because the talipapa near our place is just small that it only caters to the limited needs of a few households. We find this new set up as quite challenging because weekends are the only days we get to sleep an extra hour or two.
Very timely that our good friend Kat of Petite Momma’s World introduced to us Atreena Fresh Market.
Often, it is in mingling with people that we learn about life and whatnot. For example, we learn more about running a business through a conversation with business owners and entrepreneurs. In our case, we learn more about parenting and motherhood from our friends who share their successes and struggles in dealing with their children.
This is the same experience college courtside reporter Angelique Manto had when she got up close and personal with her favorite celebrity Pia Wurtzbach. She recently got the chance to spend a day with the beauty queen and Angeline used all the time to get to know more about Pia.
About three weeks ago, a friend forwarded a free Jollibee meal message. All we have to do is answer a few questions and then forward the same message to friends. I answered the short survey and forwarded the message to friends. I stopped when I felt there was something wrong.
One of my friends to whom I forwarded the message to completed the task. After a few minutes, she got a notification that someone attempted to open her GCash. Another friend had a similar experience. We then concluded that the Jollibee message aims not to give a free meal but to get access to our GCash.
Such fraud act is called phishing.
Many of us imagine that every day will be filled with joy once we find our lifetime partners. We picture the thrill of sharing a family with that special one, and the sheer unending pleasure of a partner who is so very in tune with us.
Sometimes, though, we won’t see our partners eye-to-eye the way we might like. Our lifestyle might differ, too, or we may bicker about things we would have once agreed on.
The Man and the Wood
In our household, we often bake, roast, and steam meat. We believe that fried food is high in fat which may be bad to our health, thus as much as possible, we refrain from frying meat. Fried chicken, pork belly, and tofu are an exemption, though. That crunch as your jaws clamp down on a juicy bite of fried chicken is such a pleasure to behold as my boys enjoy our lunch or dinner. So if we fry meat, we only use palm oil.
The Trumpeter Taken Prisoner
The trumpeter in the story may be considered innocent. After all, he hasn’t killed anyone. His responsibility is to only blow his horn during the presence of enemies. However, his post is very crucial to the success of his team.
The other group was right. By sounding out the orders, the trumpeter guide and encourage his soldiers in battle. That being the case, he was instrumental to the death of hundreds of soldiers of the other camp.
This is what the three videos of BDO Unibank, Inc. would want to portray. The videos are part of BDO remittance service brand BDO Remit‘s campaign featuring real stories of Filipinos abroad engaged in some of the most uncommon jobs. The first one is about a father working in Europe as a celebrated drag performer (titled “Europe“). The second one features a young woman working in Japan as a lonely death cleaner or Tokushu Seiso (“Japan“). The last one is about a father working as a cross-border driver in the Middle East (“Middle East“).
