Buhay OFW

Today marks my 13th anniversary here in Qatar. A chapter in my life where home and work environment was far more different than before. I don't want to tell you stuff about my job, how much I like it (sometimes not), how my work environment is, how my past and present colleagues are, and so on...
I always compare Qatar to the Philippines before like it’s kinda safer here, kundi sobrang init e sobra naman lamig at kung anik-anik pa… Basta isip ko lang na as an OFW for as long as I can work here, I can provide and finance our needs and wants, and able to help my family back home kaya GO! GO! GO kaya ko to’!
Isa sa pinakamasaya at laging kong pinakahihintay as an OFW every month ang SMS galing sa BANK na nagsasabing..."Your salary is credited to your bank account"... 😍 Same feeling as txt ng BF mo na kahit minsan lang ang makaalala mangamusta pero HEAVEN ang feelings! Yan message na yan ang nag aalis nghirap, pagod at inis! hahahaha!
I also said before 5 years lang basta makaipon! Typical mindset ng mga OFW ung basta makaipon para makapagpagawa ng sariling bahay + kunting ipon OK na pwede ng umuwi at mag for good. YUN DIN ANG AKALA KO! 😁
Sakto 5 years nakapagpagawa kami ng bahay at higit sa lahat dumating si Juric sa buhay namin! May bahay na diba so, OK na ba un uwian na?! Ooooppssss… Di pa rin kasi need mag-ipon para sa future ni Juric mahal ang milk, diapers, vitamins, medical check-ups, tuition fees at pano pag nagturo pa yan sa grocery? O kaya pag sinabi na nyang “I’M HUNGRY KAIN TAYO, tapos minsan sasabihan ka pa sa video chat ng ”NANAY BILHAN MO KO NG CELPHONE KASI LUMA NA TAB KO GUSTO KO IPHONE..” Imagine 7 yrs old IPHONE ang gusto! Alam nya kayang kami ng tatay nya walang iphone??? So ayun nga hanggang saan kaya aabot ang savings mo?! Hahahaha! 😆😭😳
But wait there’s more… pag tuwing magbabakasyon kami sa pinas mahirap umalis-alis na magcocommute lang kawawa naman si Juric maiinitan sa byahe (korek! Sya rin ang dahilan kung bakit kami bumili ng sasakyan)
Aside from this, being an OFW I'm proud to say na kahit papaano marami na rin naman kaming natulungan ibang tao… 😎
So un po mga ang reason why until now andito pa rin ako (kami) sa Qatar. If until when? Hanggang kakayanin siguro and I thank you! ☺️
Sa mga akala na mayaman na po ako kasi 13 yrs na ko here hindi po baon rin po ako (kami) sa utang! Kaya ung may mga may utang dyan ALEM NE THIS BEKE NEMEN!

How to Make Your Marriage Last

Marriage is not just  saying "I do" in front of God. It is a commitment of  two people with each other. To last forever is one of the biggest challenges marriage will  ever face. It will be a tough commitment, but for a couple who believe that marriage will last longer no matter what  will survive longer than those who don't fully believe in the concept of  forever. But sometimes, falling out of love is out of control. We might wake up one morning not in love with one another or just simply fell out of love.

To make a lasting marriage, the couples should know how to work with it. There is no such thing as one way relationship. This kind of marriage will not survive in a long run. It does need a lot of patience and understanding. Fighting is normal as long as it don't end in  hurting each other. Anger is a healthy emotion as long as you both know how to accept your mistakes, apologize and move on.

A healthy relationship can speak honestly with each other, no lies, no secrets. Marriage is give and take, both need to help around the house no matter how busy each other in their job. Don't stop surprising each other, small or big thing can be a surprise everyday. We don't need an anniversary or occasion to show love with each other. Everyday  can be a special day for the partners. It is normal to be abnormal once in a while. Keep things fun by making your partner laugh and feel love with your natural act like silly song and dance.

If you have any of these things, your relationship will last for a long time.

Burnt Movie Review

“Burnt” is a story of a young Chef’s relapse and recovery. After 3 years of out of work, Chef Adam (Bradley Cooper) returned to Paris and was determined to have the best restaurant in the world.

He started building up his dream kitchen brigade by hiring old friends and enemies. Tony (Bruhl), hands over his present fine-dining establishment to Adam, Sous chef Michel (Omar Sy), Italian ex-con Max (Riccardo Scamarcio), Reece (Matthew Rhys). He also hires new crew Helene (Sienna Miller), chef de partie and David (Sam Keeley).

Chef Adam is a perfectionist when it comes to food preparation. He scolds his fellow chefs for not meeting his standards, “If it’s not perfect, you throw it away!” He is one of the very gifted man behaving very badly. He throw tantrums, smashes plates if his staff did not meet his expectation. He only cares about the thrill of creating explosions of taste, to turn a decent meal into something truly memorable, and mind-blowing. And of course, the fancy dishes and desserts needs a restaurant critic, played by Uma Thurman.

The movie showed how demanding and nerve- wracking the culinary world is. It captures the energy of the chefs inside the professional kitchen. It shows how food had been prepared and cooked to create a superb meal. We learned that the best chefs aren't just great with a knife and passion for cooking, but also have a lot of patience and determination to run a successful restaurant. As a culinary arts student, I can relate to the pressure in the kitchen and of course the “Yes Chef.” All in all, the movie is entertaining and well-acted.

Rating: 4 star.
