Philippine SONA 2016 Fashion: Simpler

Unlike the State of the Nation Address or commonly known as SONA of the  predecessor of newly elected Philippine president Rodrigo, the first SONA of the president was considered modest compared to the red - carpet - Oscar's Awards - counterpart with all the elegant and expensive suits, long gowns that dressed the senators, congress people and other VIP guests.

This year, the fashion wardrobe was rather simple if not spartan.  The nation before would actually drool on how fancy the guests were during any SONA but with the mandate of the President himself who wishes for no extravagance, then, guests were just in their elegant but simple wardrobe.

I guess I commend the initiative of our President for simplicity and to focus more on what makes better public service instead of worrying fancy fashion that just shows off how big they are as politicians compared to faceless Filipinos --- my wishful thinking eh.

Call Center - BPO Fashion Style

Working in a call center has its perks and of course downsides, but let me cite the good stuffs though.

I like the fact that you can meet new set of people especially coming from academe. You simply get amazed by the varying personalities you will encounter from supervisors, colleagues and clients. And, I can only hope for the best.

Another good side is the good pay. It simply has a lot of tangible perks and I cant say more about this though. :)

But, what I love more too is the freedom we get from choosing our clothing styles (non - professional looking though is taboo).

So, at least, I get too wear jeans or dresses, with my favorite casual bags, sneakers or tees and cotton jacket.

It is not a job for everyone though and I am still learning the ropes.  But, the fashion style for call center for most people is just to be yourself within the company fashion bounds.
