To tell you honestly, I had already made a decision of leaving the Philippines since the day that I had finished my MBA. I feel that I can do more if I'd be given the chance to work in a foreign land.
I had a lot of dreams for my family and I cannot do it if I 'll stay and work in Manila.
My number one reason was to be able to support my family.
My father and mother were getting older by the day and I want to give them the best life possible because they deserve it. I want them to get old without going through hardships because they're done with that. They've been experiencing this for far too long and I want them to have a better life. I want to bring my father to the best doctor as he had been experiencing fainting spells and we don't know the reason behind it.
Also i want to give them their own house because they don't one.
Next is the bigger salary.
Let's face it people who worked abroad are well compensated compared to people who works back home.
The other thing that had made me decide to work abroad was the opportunity to travel.
Who doesn't like traveling?
So why Dubai, UAE and not anyother places like Singapore, Australia or Canada?
Because I was given the opportunity to go here. A friend of mine had encouraged me to try my luck in Dubai and with her help, I was able to get a visit visa and the rest is what they say is history.
Burj Al Arab - one of the most beautiful structure I've seen in Dubai.

And Dubai was and will always be the best choice for me.
Dubai had offered me the chance to prove myself. And through hard work and perseverance I was able to be where I am today.
But it was not as easy as you can imagine, it was not a walk in the park. I went through all the hardship and sacrifices just to be here (more on that on my next post).
