  • There are some positives na man of working sa Pinas....

    Hindi inaasahan na matatangal ako sa SG (Pass renewal rejected), at ngayon na naka settle na ako ulet sa pinas, etoh lang masasabi ko. For all the obvious reasons why we choose to work in SG (money, safety, efficiency, government, public transport, etc) when I think about life holistically, and purpose of life, and your purpose of being in this world, meron din na man pang bato ang Pinas... these are some of the things i realised

    1. Sa PH, di mo ma f-feel second class citizen ka. Sa work life, home life, social life....
    2. You will uncover new depths of depression in SG that you never thought was possible. Sa pinas truly happy ka and you know it.
    3. Sa SG.. you're always thinking money. money money money. savings. kase pag gumastos ka, parang isip mo palagi should i have saved that. coz if your'e not saving in SG ano purpose na pinunta mo dun.
    4. Hard to envisage 'forever' in the long term sense sa SG. Unless you are PR or Citizen (which is practically so out of reach now), time is always short sighted for you never know when you'll eventually have to leave. Quality of life as a result isn't as 'abundant' as it should be.
    5. You will feel yourself worth more sa Pinas. Daming jobs, you get multiple job offers. Sa SG para kang ewan ko parang you're never good enough. See #1.
    6. Mas mabango at malinis ang mga kilikili ng mga lalaki ng mga pinoy. Mas masarap amuyin at himurin. So smorgasboard galore kung na sa pinas ka. Lalo na pag sumakay sa jeep dami gwapo na ka sando lang kita buhok ng kilikili nila.
    7. Mas marami kang family/friends network support sa pinas. Palagi ka masaya,
    8. You feel like you're living your true life sa pinas. I feel repressed sa SG, kahit na matagal ako dyan, parang di ko feel na sarili ko. Like it's some short fake temporary life I was living.

    I'm still greatful though for my SG experience, and just wanted to write lang that there are also positives din when coming back to Pinas (coz it's the one thing i feared the most the entire time I was there, and now that it's happened.. well.. it's not so bad afterall din pala :-) )

    Obviously na ka ipon ako which is why siguro happy ako sa life sa pinas (choose to live close to work,investments etc) so sa mga bagets dyan encourage ko pa rin kayo mag SG, pero make sure you save your hard earned money lang and be prepared for the emotional side and life adjustment...

  • Investment Opportunities

    Word of Caution on SDMC.. ang pangit ng mga units, at mahirap pa ibenta. Dami din ako friends nag invest sa smdc. kunware tumataas nga pero hindi na man ma benta. Porket tinaas ang developer ng price, as an investor you'll never get that selling price in the public market. so ngayon yung mga frineds ko na nag invest puro empty mga units. saying lang pera na hinulugan nila. ginagamit na lang nila pag uuwi or pa minsan meron din air bnb, pero di sapat ang kita sa nilabas nilang pera.

    Tapos their after service customer service also sucks. I google nyo lang.. madami complaints. Sabi ng friendsk o keylangan mag threaten pa sa HLURB para kumilos. isang malaking head ache lang ang SMDC.

    Payo lang sa inyo before u part with your hard earnt OFW money (tayo kase ang tinatarget ng mga developers na yan, yung may kaya na konte, at wala na man masyadong alam sa true market sa atin kase hindi tayo dun based).

    But yes, go for the free food hehe.

  • What to tell the IO PH to avoid being offloaded

    alam nyo mga tropa peeps.. kahapon sa immigration pag labas ng pinas, meron silang waiver form na nakalagay "I will not hold BOI accountable should I be refused entry in destination country even though immigration suspects documentation presented is not sufficient" ek-ek na ganun... tinanong ko kung para saan yun.

    Sabi nya, kase ayaw naman nila talaga ipa offload mga tao na gusto mag hanap ng trabaho, lalo na kung meron sila pamilya na sasalo just in case things go wrong. Kase they also understand na meron din daw na gusto mag hanap ng trabaho...

    Ewan ko kung bagong policy ito....

  • Racism in SG ?

    tama si @AhKuan hindi lang ditto nangyayari. Basta meron minority sila palagi na may tendency ma a-api.

    guilty din tayo dyan, lalo na sa manila, pag tinatawanan ang mga taga bisaya or taga probinsya, oh diba?
