Muni Munis Independence Day Edition


1. It must be the Thai massage last night and I was feeling lazy the whole day. Pakiramdam ko gulay ang katawan ko. It is as if the massage had sucked up all my energy. I liked the massage to be fair and I will go back again.  But today is one of those days where your body tells you not to do anything and just lazy around. So what have I done so far? reading, sleeping, listening to some kpop even I do not know what it means, and wandering my thoughts to as far as home. Somehow it feels good. Saturday has always been a free day for me. But I hope to be feeling 'productive' before the end of the day.

2. I have been thinking of a new personal project. Another blog where I can hone my writing skills. I have been inspired to 'write'. I have been drawn to this idea to go back to 'writing seriously'. I bought two books on writing! And I am reminded that this is one of my resolutions for this year.  I still write in my job. I still want to keep this blog because this is my no-holds-barred blog. But I am excited by the prospect. No grand plans. Just trying to be consistent and cultivate a writing habit. All my work-related and experience can be posted there.

3. Philippine Independence Day bukas at meron isang araw na kasiyahan at programa sa Banpo Hangang Park para sa mga Filipinos dito sa Korea. Maraming Filipinos dito sa Korea. Iba't ibang klase ang mga dahilan kung bakit sila nandito. Excited din naman ako bukas. Nagpakilala na ako sa ambassador dito noong isang book reading session with Butch Dalisay dito. And I intend to be a familiar figure in the embassy for the next months to come. Gawin nating goal yan. haha.

Karamihan sa amin ay mga EPS workers (under the Philippine-Korea worker's program) o may mga blue-collar jobs. Nakakatuwa din naman silang pagmasdan. Mga makukulit. Mga maiingay. Yung iba OA. At ilang beses na rin ako natanong kung magkano ang suweldo ko at paano daw ako nakakuha ng visa ko. Para bang minsan sa tono ng pananalita nila ay may ginawa akong kakaiba. Do not worry, naovercome ko na yan. Haha. Ang visa ko naman kase ay iba sa kanila. Sabi ng Filipino desk officer sa office namin ang visa ko daw ay isa sa mga sought-after visa status since puwede kang magpalipat lipat ng trabaho at mabilis ang permanent residency. Akala ko naman may discount sa mga pamilihan at sa buwis. Yeah, I paid tax to Korean government. Sa totoo lang, I don't get to privilege my visa status. For what? Wala naman akong balak mag permanent resident dito maliban na lang kung magkajowa ng Koreano at kung dito ako magsettle, eh di effortless. Char.  Gawin din nating semi-goal yan. haha

4. Nitong buwan, naramdaman ko na parami ng parami at pabigat ang trabaho ko. Parami kase ang bossing ko ay tila walang konsepto ng sharing the burden. Pasa sa akin ang ilang trabaho niya pero hindi naman ako overworked to be fair. Sa linya ng trabaho ko, importante ang outcome. At kung hindi maconnect ang ginagawa mong output sa outcome. Medyo source of stress sa akin ito. Ayoko sa lahat yung pinipilit na maidaos lang. May konting diligence naman dapat. Well, I have my own program to manage so kebs. So focus na lang muna. Work hard, play harder.

Thank you 2017.

Few days left of 2017. Where have all the time gone? Since I have a forgetful memory, I look back at my Instagram and rekindle the fondest o...
