Everyone around the world were all busy welcoming the New Year. Some people celebrate New Year’s Eve by holding a party, some attending midnight church services, some gather at home to see loved ones that haven’t seen for a long time and to have fun together, while others prefer to gather around in public venues to countdown and watch the fireworks display.
Being an Overseas Filipino Worker, it is the best time for us to go home as our family tradition we make Holidays and special occasions our family reunion. But sad to say, I wasn’t able to come home for some reasons. I had no annual leave left and besides the airfare cost was tripled and so I decided to stay though I really wanted to. I get a bit emotional but I still chose to celebrate New Year’s Eve happily and full of positivity, for good vibes for the new year. I spent my New Year’s Eve with my special someone and friends. We cooked and ate dinner together in our flat then went to Marina Bay Sand Hotel to countdown to New Year’s Day.
We came down from the house to go to the countdown venue around 23:00hrs. For my almost four years stay in Singapore it was my first time going out to countdown & watch fireworks display. I never expect that would be so crowded that even exit doors were being used by the people to go in to the venue. The most famous and biggest hotel in Singapore filled with a huge crowd, could not even drop a single needle on the ground for being so congested. We reached just on time, the fireworks just started. We couldn’t get in so we just stayed in the area where we get stucked and listened to the fireworks sound and noise of the crowd. We haven’t seen the fireworks clearly but still it made our New Year’s Eve happy. We headed home right after the fireworks display. The trains were also so full. Some of us get lost in the crowd but we managed to catch up each other at the last train station. It was one of a kind experience for me. I just realized that it was so scary if any panic broke out in that crowd, it would have been a disaster. Stampede can happen. Thanks God nothing happened that night and that we all reached home safe and sound.
I get tired from the event so I got up in bed so late but I made it sure not to waste the very first day of the year. It’s a new year and we better get a new start and so it is, my first step to HEALTH this year. I did some exercise to bring in a healthy, happy and peaceful new year. Health is Wealth.
These filled the first blank page of my new year a good one.
Since childhood, I have always been fascinated to work abroad than to work in my own country. This is it! I am leaving tomorrow to start a new journey of my life. It feels very unusual though it isn’t my first time. I don’t know if I gonna go or back-out for definetly I will gonna miss my family, love one and friends and I’m so tired of being alone and hate to be a stranger again. I know it already how hard to work in a foreign country. But of course I need to decide to go considering all the expenses we spent and the effort I made. I believe this would be a greener pasture for me. If I did it before why not this time?. I just need to be strong again and take more courage. God is with me wherever I go. I am standing on His promises as what he said in Jeremiah 29:11-13 “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
I hate saying this…but…to all of you who loves me..GOODBYE! Don’t worry & sad for I will come back home. Saying goodbye it doesn’t mean forever, it’s just GOODBYE.
To my family, thank you for all your supports. You are my inspiration. I love you and I will miss you all. I am so proud you are my family.Please, pray for me and I will pray for you all also.
This Shirt was a remembrance of my previous work. It was Valentines Day when I had a tourist guest from Italy who is so polite & kindhearted.
I had a conversation with him. I gave him the best service which I usually do to every guests. He really had a great dining experience. He left the Restaurant satisfied & happy, in that, He left a Tip for me. Surprisingly, two hours later, He went back and was looking for me. He brought with him a small paper bag & handed it to me. I opened it with so much excitement, it was the “Shirt” with a print “A GOOD HEART IT’S A GOOD MEDICINE.” He got that shirt printed with the words exactly what was on my Tip Tray.
He is so lovely! God bless his GOOD HEART

But i have no worries about it for I know God always keeps His promises to me that He will never leave me nor forsake me. I am happy for I could help my family again in terms of financial & material needs even in a small way. It would be a greener pasture working out there, I believe. I don’t know why I get sad when I knew that our youngest sister will going to settle down. If ever, she will be the second one in the family to be wed. We are still four older than her who is not yet married. She just graduated & passed the licensure examination for Nursing. I am disappointed a li’l bit for I thought she will gonna work abroad. It would be a great help for herself & for our family too. I want her to learn to stand with her own feet, to be independent. I don’t really know why I feel like this, I should be happy for her instead. She is my vibes among sisters and she is close to me. Maybe I just can’t accept the fact that she will going to leave our family and will going to have her own. But, for sure it has nothing with me/us being still single.he..he..he… It’s my/our choice. Just last week everyone in the clan got shocked when one of my cousins revealed her secret that she’s pregnant. We’re all worried about how she and her family will going to raise the Baby for she doesn’t have work at all, her family struggling too much financial crisis and the father of her Baby is not with her. Everyone is praying that God will take care of everything. We all know God is so good & faithful even though sometimes we are not. He is still willing to forgive us to all of our sins. We are glad one more angel will be added to our clan.
I was once their Sunday School Teacher. I worked abroad and that caused me to stop my ministry. They were still very young when I left and now they are all taller than me. I am so happy, proud and thankful that after three years they are still going in the church and serving God. How precious to know that they uses their talents to glorify God. Keep it up Teens! Hope none of you will go astray.
