It’s 8 in the morning, 2 hours from now I will be leaving my home country to pursue the next chapter of my career– and my life. Flashback 24 hours, I was up early and busy preparing my stuff. All the planning and preparations go down to this moment.
After replying to the bon voyage tweets of my friends and some chit chats over Whatsapp, I can now have this time to gather my thoughts and write something straight off my head.
I am having a roller coaster of emotions right now. On one turn I am really excited, come second turn I am anxious, and next, astonishment that I still can’t believe that I am actually doing this: risking it all to get what I have been wanting for years.
No risk, no return.
I will leave a part of my life in the Philippines, and will take with me some of it on my way to Singapore. From there, I want to rebuild my life and my career. This is the time that action plans must be implemented. No more waiting, no more relying on chance and luck. I believe this is the right time — I want it to be, because it needs to be.
I hope everything will turn out well. As I always say to my friends, I can feel that this will turn out good but I don’t want to be too complacent. I have been praying to the Lord so hard for this, and I know that He will pave the way for me, for He, and only He, knows what’s best for me. I hope to be successful on my stint, since at my age, there is no turning back.
I want to thank my friends and family who have been very very supportive of me regarding this plan. Perhaps where I am heading is an awesome place after all. 🙂
I am itching to go to Singapore but nevertheless, I will miss Philippines too. The food, the laid-back lifestyle, the “challenging” traffic, etc. I spent my remaining weeks here taking in all the food that my belly can take. It is evident now, lol! Isaw, Jollibee, tapsilog, lechon manok, palabok — it will take a while before I get to taste them again. Singapore has an array of awesome cuisine thanks to its very rich culture, but Pinoy food still raks!
I am pretty much excited to meet new friends in Lah land, and ofcourse to be with my Pinoy friends working there too. I am also looking forward to get back in my workout regimen again — particularly running and swimming. I will try dragon boat, yoga and frisbee too. 🙂
Oops, there goes the boarding gate waving at me. I guess this is goodbye for now. See you in LAH land! 🙂
