Janet Napoles Jeane Napoles Birthday Party

Unfortunately, this is how Janet Napoles and her family spends our hard-earned money for tax payments. According to sources, here are the details for this very extravagant birthday party for her daughter's 21st birthday party, Jeane Napoles:

Table charge per head : $1,000 (Approximately Php 43,000 each!)

Wow! Seriously?! While many of the tax-payers are suffering from serious poverty! Shame on you, Janet Lim-Napoles!

Odesk Clients Looking For Filipino Contractors


Odesk Clients Filipino Contractors

I'm a blogger and a full time Filipino Odesk contractor. I spend most of my free time browsing job offers on Odesk. One thing I always notice about most of the job offers looking for "Filipino Contractors Only" is that they are trying to attract Filipinos with their very high requirements and extremely low bids. Here's the latest I've seen this morning:

Odesk Clients offering jobs to Filipinos

This Canadian client is offering a 40-hour per week job for only $20 per day (like Php840 per week)?! I'd rather get a job in a small fast food chain.

I also found another one yesterday. I wasn't able to do a screenshot but the bid is 0.15 cents per hour (60 hours per week). The job requires the contractor to write high quality 800-word articles (one article per hour) and to work during UK business hours.

Seriously? These Odesk clients should know that even though Philippines is known as one of the third world countries, Filipinos are not illiterate. They are known worldwide to be very smart and talented. Most of the time, Filipino Odesk contractors can speak English better than their Odesk clients / employers.

I also have some experiences when foreign clients treat Filipino contractors like they're dumb. I even had a German client / employer who used to say that the only thing he likes about Filipinos is that they are cheap laborers. I immediately ended my contract with him. He tried to reconcile by offering me a higher hourly rate, but I refused.

I'm not being too sensitive about this subject. But once and for all, I just want to clarify that Filipinos sign up on Odesk to look for decent part time or full time jobs.. and not to be insulted. Before judging these contractors, look at their capabilities first. Don't judge someone by his/her race! Who knows? This Filipino contractor could be way better than you!

Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto: Reason Behind the Divorce

If you're a fan of The Vampire Diaries, then prepare your tissues. Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) and his wife Torrey DeVitto (Meredith Fell) have filed for divorce after two years of marriage.

They first met back in 2007 on the set of Killer Movie. They were married in a private NY ceremony in April 2011 and Torrey soon joined the cast of The Vampire Diaries as Meredith Fell (a town council member and medical doctor who was fascinated by Alaric's recovery powers). Unfortunately, her character also lost its "staying powers" after Alaric died.

According to Paul's representative, they have decided to "amicably split" and will continue to remain good friends.

No word yet behind this heart-breaking split but sources say that distance is a main factor. Paul lives in Atlanta while filming TVD, while Torrey works in Los Angeles.

Paul and Torrey's divorce comes soon after their Vampire Diaries co-stars Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert / Katherine Pierce) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) ended their 3-year romance.

What's happening with these TVD celebrities?
