I may have overreacted. I misread your subject as 'Okay ka ba dyan (Are you ok?). I need to change my glasses.

You should have said it in such way Mr. Rene-PCSO, since this is an English site. For sure, I'd be delighted to tell you more about the country and the recent Athens 2004 Olympics. I'm very much a Filipino, and I would interpret your initial statement, exactly the way you felt writing it. I intentionally said that 'mentor' thing to make you react. Didn't you expect me to react in the first place?

I love this site. It gives us freedom to express our need to learn, contribute, initiate projects, and sometimes share some humor.

Have a productive day!

Regards,
Bonn

PS: I admire your decision for staying in the Phils. considering that you have experienced working abroad. I hope there could be more opportunities for our OCWs to encourage them use their talent and live a better life back home. I also worked in the gulf and middle east and knew the hardship our fellow OCWs experienced in that region.
