One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

There are an estimated 1.8 million Philippine OFW (Overseas Foreign workers) in Saudi Arabia.

150,000 are employed as nurses.

many hundreds of thousands are employed as domestic workers in Saudi Arabia

The sad fact is that 350 Philippine OFWs died last year in Saudi Arabia due to industrial accidents and sickness. This accounted for 43% of all OFW deaths in 2013. (http://www.arabnews.com/news/525651)

800 Philippine OFW’s are currently in Saudi Arabia jails, mostly for alcohol and drug posession.

don’t be needlessly worried

Don’t be needlessly worried over the little things, job, money.. There will always be a LIGHT at the end of the tunnel.

 

Image

Although I am a FIRM BELIEVER in the saying “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.  We have to have HOPE and PRAY and know that in our HEART of HEARTS the LORD is with us and will be with us for ALWAYS to make sure that EVERYTHING  is OK!

We always need to keep our OPTIONS OPEN and believe in the POWER of the word!
