Life Experience That Helped Me || Daily Prompt #5
Working in abroad gave me good smack on the head. Seriously!
Because I was out of my comfort zone. I cried buckets numerous times. Culture shock and home sickness are real. It took me a year to really adjust. I know I could’ve just gone back home and forget about everything but I can’t. I don’t want to be a disappointment especially when my dad shelled out a lot of money to support me. I tried a lot of diversion tactics to keep myself busy (aside from work).
I learned a lot from this stint of my life. It opened my mind and heart. I learned to be more open-minded, be a bolder decision-maker and dreamer. This nursing career brought me to places I have never imagined to visit.
It was truly a great experience while it lasted. Thus the need to move again.
It was a good one Singapore.
Favorite Drink || Daily Prompt #4
It really depends on my mood. I’m not much of an alcohol drinker, now that’s out of the equation. I recently went home for a vacation in the Philippines and I indulged a lot on Mango Shake (or smoothie). Until now, it’s still on my mind. So it’s my current favorite.
One Of The Best Gifts I’ve Received || Daily Prompt #3
I’ve never really received a lot of gifts especially when I was young. Nito na lang, into my adult life. For me, the most thoughtful gifts na na-receive ko is not really the expensive kind. Yung tipong they observed kung ano yung gusto ko at talagang hanapin pa nila. Effort yun ha. Siguro yung pinakarecent na talagang tuwang-tuwa ako. My Aunt sent me Garrett Popcorn for Christmas 2020. I was so happy. Garrett Popcorn is one of my guilty pleasures especially when I was still working in Singapore.
How about you? What is your most memorable gift? Tell me about it please, on the comment section.
Automobile Accident || Daily Prompt #2
Late last year. My vehicle was rear-ended, I was waiting for the traffic light to turn green then BOOM! I cried like crazy because I’m in shock! I don’t know what to do. Let’s not talk about the guy who did all this because I’m still not happy with what happened. I’m just glad Kulinggit was not with me.
Judge of Character || Daily Prompts #1
Earlier in my life, I could say…NO. Because I try to see the good of the person and just avoid the red flags. There are times, lugi ako. Meaning, I’m on the receiving end of abuso, panloloko etc. End result of being TOO KIND and SHOWING VULNERABILITY to the wrong people that is overshadowed of PAGPAPAKA-TOTOO. Good thing, I tend to realize it early on. Because of that, it taught me how take everything with a grain of salt. I don’t put my trust 100% into everything until I’ve proven the consistency of the “realness” (I’m not sure if realness is the right word thus the quote in quote).
I could say I’m a lot better now when judging a character. 99% of the time, I’m correct. I just don’t put my energy into them. My time and energy are too precious, to waste on those life suckers.
Off topic: I like this daily prompt. Makes me want to actually post something. For now anything stimulating to my mom brain would be a great bonus. A more fitting post as well to the random thoughts tag.
