It has been 100 days since we arrived in Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.  I won’t say that I am very much adjusted and that my family is already settled. And yes, there are still times that I wish I was home. 

I was thinking of writing  about my immigration story until I had a chance to chat with Tatiana Nedelko from English Online, Inc. and I told her about it, she then thought that maybe as an immigrant I should talk about the things that I like about Canada.

I was sick for the past 2 days so I had to stay home, after my kids left for school, I was left alone at home. You won’t hear anything but the sound of the light music playing from my iPod. I was seating at my husband and I’s favorite chair (we have this chair by our bow window in front of our TV that my husband and I will always fight on who gets to sit first)when I realized that even if I love my kids and having them around me, sometimes, it is still good to have some quite time alone…

Most new comers come to Canada with all the zeal and expectations when they arrived – to get a good and stable job, be able to have their own home, to buy a new car and provide a comfortable life for their family. Though I also have high expectations when it comes to getting a better-paying job, a part of me was also prepared with the possibility of not getting the job that is inline with what I used to do when I was still in the Philippines.

“All my bags are packed I’m ready to go…”
Now that you have prepared the stuff that you are bringing with you on your big move, preparing to bring along your funds with you should also be on top of your priorities.

This is somewhat considered to be a “late” post, but because I promised to myself that I will try to at least have one post every month – I thought of using this challenge that I am into for this month.
