After reading many blogs and comment threads regarding visa application for Korea.. I finally decided not to pursue for now my application. HUHU 😦 Even though I have enough money to sponsor my trip, I still got a high chance to be denied because I just resigned from my overseas job this month. Strict;y. no work – no visa for solo travelers like me. I should have decided to apply for visa before I handed my resignation.. Common self, cheer up! there’s always a good timing and purpose on everything. South Korea, wait for me!!!!

 

Delay gratification for now, even though I really want to travel and explore the world. I have money but I have no travel companion to be with me. My dad too is strict if he knew I will travel alone even in local or overseas. sigh. I know I’m capable to travel alone but why I’m still restraining myself for so many reasons.

 

Hold on, dear self.

 

Maybe I just really need to hibernate soon to focus and know what I really want to do with my life. I know I will get over this.

 

This is my end of entry as July is about to end.

*sorry for almost a week hiatus again.

 

 

 

Always be grateful (even in down moments, yes. coz why not? I’m alive and healthy. My problems is smaller than others. I have a big God and strong faith that everything will fall into its place.)

 

 

Love,

Yes, you are poor but you can dream and work hard. You can get out from that cell that stopping you not to grow or change your life. You have to make a stand. It’s a hard battle and rough path. You gotta be strong. Have faith that your circle will support you in time, the least you expect it. You gotta experience being down before you taste real success. All of these down moments, these will all mold you up. Only way up, and forward to success. No matter how educated or successful you’ll be. Don’t forget your roots. Don’t ever belittle anybody. Nobody has the right to belittle any single human being in this universe. Stay humble. Live gratefully and with grace. Workhard to grow and to never stop learning in this life. I support Education, as equal as I give importance to our Health. 

Learning. Reflections.

I’ve watched today’s episode of #MMKPrideandJoy and Brigada. Both of them shared how essential Education is. I’m very grateful in my life that I’ve gave importance on my studies before anything else, like being in a relationship – for example. My parents really worked hard so I must pay what they deserve. It’s okay to get tired and tired while studying, but you must never ever give up your Education, dears. Education is a gold investment that your parents sacrificed everything for you to get one! 
I got really teary-eyed, when the Father doesn’t support his Son’s dream to be a teacher at first, but then, the father knew the story of his son’s hardwork and how he was belittle by his Auntie (Father side). His father gone mad with his sister. His Father just became proud of his son. Oh, men were not so vocal, but they’re really love and protecting each other. Given fact that your family will always be your source of strength. Strength, to push you towards your goal coz its really fulfilling that your family support you. Huhu. Teacher Roy, Thank you for sharing your inspiring story! #MMKPrideandJoy πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

From Brigada, I was awakened again to my dream to teach kids passionately 😒 Miss Celine was a teacher in Laguna. She was a bookworm ever since. She has a daughter who got influenced too from Technologies but now grown to love books after Celine read a book everyday for her daughter. Celine got motivated to teach other kids during summer season, and since school has started, she has session every Saturday for them. “Kwentuhan sa Wawa.” As I remember the name of her project. She can alot her time, effort, and money just to teach and serve kids. She wanted all kids to learn how to read thru her simple movement. *very inspiring, Teacher Celine!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Two of the episodes I watched today were Teachers. Real talk: I’ve wanted to become a teacher too. Passionate teacher such as Miss Sabrina OngKiko. 

To love and to serve the public. Every student deserves a good teacher. 

β€” Sabrina Ongkiko 

I’m very grateful today: I chose to alot time for my family and friends! Catch-up, done!

Thank you Lord!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Goodnight! 

Always be grateful 🌷

674 – Chasing one of my dream destination |01|πŸ‡°πŸ‡·

27 Jul

I don’t know why I got a sudden jolt of joy and excitement as I heard BTS will have their comeback on September!!!!!! Huhu! As an international ARMY, I wanted to watch you perform live and give you special gift/letter personally!!! I really want to personally thank each and everyone of you for helping me cope with sadness and homesickness while I was in Saudi Arabia!!! Just by watching you from afar, you gave me extreme ride of emotion and intense energy through your music. 

I love to go to South Korea ever since I was a student. The first movie that I watch was My Sassy Girl, I love the couple and their theme song “I believe”, too much emotions!! The time capsule, the tree, their memories. Ughhh ❀️. The first series that I watched was Endless Love : Jenny and Johnny’s lovestory.  Then many more series followed up until this year. I love to see their famous K-drama locations most. esp, Namsan Tower, Nami Island, Petit France, Busan, MyeongDong, Bok Joo’s restaurant, Sunny’s Restaurant, Goblin’s House, Heo Joon Jae’s House, Love in the moonlight set, and Scarlet Heart Ryeo set. And many many more. I want to try famous Korean Foods too and shop for cute stuffs, clothes, dress, shoes, and beauty products!!! 

I watched VLOGs at Youtube on how to get Korean Visa at Korean Embassy (DIY style) and I searched blogs too. Thank you so much for posting everything online, Kabayan! So, I prepared my requirements two days ago, then wrote an explanation letter at 0100H in the morning. Due to heavy rain brought by typhoon “Gorio”, I did not push myself to get out of my bed to go to Korean Embassy today. I slept 0430H to finish my handwritten explanation letter. I’ve explain that my certificate of employment was incomplete based from their requirements. Praying that they will accept it and give me Korean Visa.  

I don’t know why the rain was nonstop all day. 

Then. . . 

I woke up from an another news about BTS’ final leg of wings tour concert in Korea on December!!!!!! As in, OmO!!! I want to go 😭

Now. .

I’m back to questioning again my dearest self on when to travel to South Korea!?? September or December!??? 

I’ve spent 465 Php for processing my documents. 

  • Bank clearance – 100php
  • Bank statement – 100php
  • ITR as an OFW – 100php
  • Brgy. Clearance – 50php
  • Documentary stamp – 15php
  • Picture for Visa (6pcs) – 100php 

I searched flights and accomodations already. Slight expensive for this September. But more expensive on December!! I really want to go as soon as possible before I start to review and focus for IELTS exam in PH. I’m praying for my visa to be granted if I applied this week/next week as a big reward for myself this year. I hope my dad will approve too, for me to have a solo travel in South Korea as a tourist. I’m not that afraid anymore to be alone because I knew some of the basic Korean more than before. Then, if there’s a chance, I will go back again on December!!!!! 🀞🏽 visa granted and approved, please!!!! πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

Goodnight! *thank God I finished updating my blog and journal πŸ’

Always be grateful 🌷

Love,

(Quick doodle from Kita Kita Movie: Heart as Lea / Alessandra de Rossi, Banana as Tonyo / Empoy. “Puso at Saging Story” in Sapporo, Japan)

This movie is a simple story of where your pure kindness goes. How it will grows back to you. πŸ’ž

Life is short. Take chances. Enjoy life. Do what you love. Serve and spread love everyday. Coz we really didn’t know when is our time to go up, yes only way up!!!!! Huhuhuhu 😩 It’s so easy to say these things but it’s difficult to maintain to be happy all the time and do these stuff. Huhu what I’m pointing out there. I’m just so shocked to see “condolence posts” early in the morning. Found out that one of my batchmate/schoolmate in Highschool died due to cardiac arrest. Young, active, and sporty woman that everyone knew. Rest in peace, A.. πŸ•Š
My bff, Iya, we met for a quick catch-up and went to A’s wake to pray. It’s sad that friends meet in a funeral after long months of not seeing each other.. 😞

Before heading home, we had our pagpag time, we ate and had our catch up at Calle Lila. I always admire this woman for being enthusiastic and lovable every time. She’s now the breadwinner of the family at her young age. She juggled everything with grace. I always love how she appreciates simple things too. I hope she allot time also for herself, she must engage too, to skin care and exercise. This woman is selfless, simple, and very warm inside. Thank you for your time spent with me even though you’re so busy(I understand haha), bff iya ❀️ I love you 😘

Always be grateful, simple for being alive and breathing!!!!! Thank you Lord!!! 🌷

Love,

Nj
