Taiwan: An Old Crate of Memories

One of the things you learn when you go overseas is how much a lot of the countries overseas really just like to enjoy life.

– Chris Paul –

I accompanied my friend to apply for Taiwan and unexpected things happen.

A set of tests were given to applicants and the examiner accidentally gave me a set of questionnaires and I took and answered it for fun. After 2 hours, one of the employees from the Manpower Agency announced those applicants who made it and upon my surprise, I was on the top 3, and my friend didn’t make it on her first try. I didn’t expect it that would happen that fast, after three weeks I flew to Taiwan. I even quit my job and school. This was my first travel abroad.

It was May 5, 2000, when I left my country to become an Overseas Filipino Worker. I was assigned to a manual machine to produce chips. From white collar job to blue collar job but no regrets because it was 7x more bigger than my salary in my home country. The only problem is, this job is risky. Every day I inhaled solvent, the company see to it that we were in good condition all the time so we had medical check-ups every six months.

After a year, I was assigned as a line leader and dormitory supervisor. So much pressure that I even quit my job and had a breach contract. I went home in May 2002. At that time, the company, I mean most of the companies in Taiwan were in crisis, so it was just a perfect timing for me to go back home.

In my two years in Taiwan, many memories were created. A set of new friends and friends up to this pointing time. I believe that when you live under the same roof, a more genuinely camaraderie will developed. And I agree because I can confess to them anything under the sun than with my old friends. Friendship is not how long you’ve been together but it’s how you value someone else genuinely. Through fights and being sulky at one another is just a test if you accept not only their good sides but also their weaknesses. I experienced all that, and proud to say we still remain friends.

A Whole Day Affair in Camp John Hay

After five long years in college, who could have thought she would make it, from graduation to the board exam. Of course, I am a proud ate! As a result, we ended up eating the whole day and roamed around the city where we don’t normally do.

An early lunch at Hi Mile Diner, Camp John Hay

If we managed to satisfy our hunger, so with the eyes.

Why do you always have room for dessert?

Can’t resist, the powder room was awesome!

How to end up your day? Another set of a meal!

Congratulations sister for passing the licensing exam for teachers, secondary level. You are now a teacher!
