It is fulfilling to know that in some way or another, what I put up in my blog has helped a few people… I will take it as an assurance that my blog site is serving it’s purpose… when I came out with the very first post about immigrating to Canada,
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.
