About this documentary: “The people in the Philippines are suffering from one of the toughest and longest lockdowns in the world. As the government struggles to deal with the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, the ultra-strict quarantine and social distancing measures which have now stretched to more than half a year, have left the economy on its knees. The move has also left millions of people jobless and hungry. The dire situation has now pushed millions of people to the brink of starvation. Why did the pandemic hit the poorest of poor so hard? With the Philippine economy slipping into its worst recession in decades, can the poor pull themselves out from the crushing poverty? Will their cries for help be heard?”
Many Earl’s Court residents have apparently been complaining to the The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council about ‘odours’ coming from Jollibee’s first London branch.
According to an email newsletter from Cllr. Linda Wade, the Liberal Democrat Councillor for Earl’s Court, Jollibee was served with an Abatement Notice under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The Notice requires Jollibee to take steps to prevent odour. If they fail to comply the Council will take the appropriate action as per their enforcement policy.

A visitor wanted to tell us about his new music site AFIRtayo.com. Take a look:
www.AFIRtayo.com (A Filipino International Radio) has been created with the purpose of “bridging all the international Filipino communities in order for them to have one voice.”
Listeners may ask this question: “What makes AFIRtayo.com different from all the other net radios?”
Aside from the kind of music that matches the liking of majority of the listeners, AFIRtayo.com makes you feel at home, not just because you are listening to music that suits your taste, but rather it helps you build a certain bond with all the other listeners through being able to communicate with them; every listener has a privilege to voice out his or her thoughts, feelings and opinions and be a part of a world-wide community of happy and expressive people. This site, although especially made for Filipinos, is not exclusively for Filipinos. People of every color and race are very much welcome to join this community!
