This would be my goal for the next two years. If you've read my previous entry, I mentioned that this would be the year that I learn to save money. I really don't want to work anymore. I'm tired of waking up everyday and going to the office. I want to own my time and be my own boss.

The way money is coming in here in the Philippines, I guess it will take me more than ten years to save enough money to start my won business. So this is where going abroad will come in. I heard Dubai has some good paying call centers. I'm sure that I'll be able to get in easy if I apply now since I have a good experience with my previous jobs.

Of course I need to have a passport first. That's the first thing I'll get the moment I resigned from my present post. The reason that it's my goal for the next two years is for me to be able to save money to pay for tickets and all the requirements.

I guess my goal for posting tonight is to ask for advise on what kind of job should I look for, and what's the easiest way for me to get a job abroad. I need your help.

2008 a new year, and a new resolution. As this is the year that I enter the last year of being in the mid-20's range, I've come to look back at what I have done since I entered my 20's.


For a brief period of time I finally been on top of the career that I've entered after I graduated. I left pretty much earlier to try and find new things. Spread my wings.
Unfortunately, job hunting is difficult when you don't have the budget. I ended up working in a call center again. Silver lining though is that it's a dayjob.
I may not like where I am at the moment career-wise but with all the decisions in life I've made, I have no regrets.
I'm actually rethinking staying here in the Philippines. Maybe there are better things in store for me abroad.


My parents have achieved one of their dreams in their adult life... going to the States. I'm happy for them.
Last year, my family actually grew.
For 4 months I lived in an apartment and developed a relationship stronger than friendship with some of the people I worked with.
The last few days of 2007 I felt how it is having brothers. And actually for the first time, our house finally had life. Just read previous entry.


Being a yuppie, the last few years I've been able to purchase the things that I really wanted to buy: comics, perfume, XBox360, speakers and DVD's.
The thing is, with all those purchases, I wasn't able to save money. Four years working, and none to show for it in terms of money.
If there is one regret I have in my life, is that I never learned to save money. But more of that in future posts.
Money matter will be something that I'll learn this year.


The last few years have been a roller coaster for me in terms of relationships.
Typical single who can't keep someone for longer than I wanted to. Who knows, maybe it's me or I just have lousy luck in terms of love.
Lovelife may be bad, good thing though, the same could not be said about my sex life.
Other than that, everything's the same with me.

Looking forward to this year, I'm not sure that this will be a good year, but there's nothing wrong about being optimistic. It has to be my new credo in life. Find a good thing in every decision I make. And be happy. Always be happy.

Even if I can't find a reason to.

The main reason why I haven't been in touch with this blog for the past 3 weeks is having a visitor here at home. My cousins from the States came to the country over the holiday to experience Christmas and New Year, Filipino style.

You see Brandon and Drew have never been to the country before, it's their first time here and they haven't met their entire family yet. I think it's safe to say that they were really surprised to find out that they have a huge family in the Philippines.

Christmas was actually the date for our slight family reunion with 4 generations of the clan in attendance. The picture you see here is but only a fraction of our entire family. It doesn't even include the families of my dad's siblings. His siblings aren't even complete in this picture. He has 6 other surviving siblings.

Anyway, they left already today, and I actually am starting to miss them. I'm not really used anymore to have this house quiet. And actually, this might sound cheesy, but for the few days that they were here, I actually felt how it is having brothers, and it's actually fun.

Some other family reunion stories, I have a tip about how to be a good uncle.

"NEVER lend your phone to your young nephews or nieces."

During the holiday, I actually lost all the pictures in my phone on Christmas. I don't know what happened but poof, all my pictures were gone. Good thing that I've already transferred all of it to my pc before that happened. If only my nephew wasn't cute, I may have thrown him out my window.
