"CONCIERBUS" (kohn-tser-booz) to serve/to be a slave

'CONCIERBUS" is a latin word that is about offering service/rendering service or being a slave for somebody.in the olden times of the ceasar, this are done by slaves. the patrician families have different type of slaves, some are for the field and some for the household chores and some for taking care a rearing their children in studies and arts and languages and cultures. this type of jobs is often times delegated to a greek slaves. they are the philosphers and teachers of the romans during the peak of the roman empire.

then it was glamourized by the French and termed it as "CONCIERGE". this type of job now is being undertaken mostly by men at five star hotels. majority of them have to study at some school calle "ecole hotelier". when one became a concierge, you have to achieve the title of "Les Clef D'Or". this means to say you are now part of the creme de la creme of the hotel concierge where you have or been working. I have been a "Concierge" for westin hotel of chicago, hotel nikko of chicago and the swissotel of chicago.

'CONCIERBUS'

i have just finished volunteering to work for the grand rummage sale of our local parish church, Immaculate Conception Parish of Highland Park/Ill. this is alway a big rummage sale in the north shore area of chicago. people comes from so many places to attend and shop in this rummage sale. mebers of the parish donates so many stuff to the church, from clothes to furnishng to home decor and housewares. this year somebody donated two cars for silent auction. the bid started at usd1,000.00 both are japanese car, 1998/1999 models.

'CONCIERBUS'

i think it is inherent with all of us pinoys, that we work hard abroad, and then we still remember the less fortunate back home, even their children. we always wanted our loved ones back home to have the benefit of having the nicer things in llife that we have come to have and have to be accustomed with abroad.

WE BECOME A SLAVE FOR OUR LOVED ONES - - ARE THESE LOVED ONES OF OURS READY TO BE A SLAVE FOR US ABROAD. I KNOW MY FAMILY BACK HOME WILL?

"paano and sa 'yong familia back home? will they be 'CONCIERBUS' in their own way for you also?
