Every Filipina/Filipino that are married to foreigner or planning to work in other countries should take the CFO counseling seminar. CFO means Commision of Filipino Overseas. They are guiding filipinoes everywhere in the world. If something will happen or you will have some problems with your husband, you can contact them and they will help you do something about it.

Before going out in Philippines, the Airport authorities are checking the sticker in your passport. If you dont have this sticker, then you can't go out in Philippines. They will give you the sticker if you already have your visa.

You can have the seminar in Cebu or Manila. Check their website for more informations. Click here.

Homesick, how to cope up with it?

Everybody of us feels that everytime we are away from the place and people we used to lived with. The feeling of longing is often accompanied by anxiety and depression. This might occur from mild to severe.

Living in different place is so new to me. I feel sad everytime I remember my family and my country. I wanted to cry and cry. I'm not used of being away from them. I choosed this path of my life and I have to deal with it.

We always ask how to cope up with it. I know it is so hard. I found this one over the internet. Hope it will help you all who are experiencing Homesick and will be experiencing it soon.

Once separated from home, children and adults report that the most effective ways of coping include:

  • Keeping a positive attitude
  • Maintaining contact with home, through letters (traditional or electronic)
  • Activity
  • Communication
  • Enjoying what's different about the novel environment
  • Bringing a "transitional object" (something special from home)

why Dutch Language course is Important?

Dutch is the basic language in Netherlands. Every foreigner that have decided to live here in Netherlands for good should take the dutch language course. In this way, you are able to communicate to the people around you. You will learn how dutch people talk and work.
You will take an exam to determine whether you have sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language. This is called the integration examination: when you pass the exam you speak sufficient Dutch to take part in Dutch society.

The Gemeente or City hall will pay your dutch course including the travel expenses. That is a relief for us because if you pay it alone, it will cost you €4600 and travel expenses. It is very expensive. When you are in Netherlands, go to the city hall and talk with the incharge. They will interview you and make an appointment at school.

After taking the course, you will have an Integration Examination for your dutch Citizenship. If you will not pass that exam, they will not approve your citizenship.
The Inburgeren website is ready to answer your questions.

Famous Wooden Shoes of Netherlands

Netherlands is known in the world because of their WOODEN SHOES or KLOMPEN (in dutch). The traditional, all wooden, Dutch clogs have been officially labelled as safety shoes, passing European standards for the CE mark with flying colours. Today, Dutch clogs are available in many tourist shops. Wearing clogs is considered to be healthy for the feet. Dutch are still wearing it during winter. I want to get a pair soon too. hehehe!

The Netherlands!

The Kingdom of the Netherlands consists of three parts: the Netherlands in Western Europe and the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba in the Caribbean. The Netherlands proper has a surface area of 41,526 square kilometres. It is flanked to the north and west by the North Sea, to the east by Germany and to the south by Belgium.
The Netherlands is very flat and nearly a quarter of its area is below sea level. This is where the Netherlands gets its name ("nether" which means low), though the name Holland is frequently used. Strictly speaking, this name refers to the two western coastal provinces, North and South Holland, which played an important role in the country`s history.
The country`s location near the sea also influences its climate. The average temperature is 17 degrees Celsius in summer, and two degrees Celsius in the winter. On average, 760mm of rain falls each year, fairly evenly distributed over the seasons.
The soil in the south and east of the country, where the landscape alternates between woodland and health, mainly consists of sand and gravel. The soil in the west and the north mainly consists of clay and peat. The landscape in this region which is criss-crossed by countless rivers and canals, is made up mainly of polders, such as reclaimed land, protected from flooding by dikes.
