Welcoming 2005!


It's going to be a new year indeed for me!!! I start working Jan 3! My first job in Canada! Yipeee!

Migrating isn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. It takes a lot of sacrifices, a lot of adjustments, and a lot of budgeting especially if one had to stay home with the kids and the family had to live on a single income.

Plus the fact that its not easy to find a job... even for somebody with a very good education, background and previously held a respectable position in a bank like me. I had to take up a 3-month tax course to get this job.

So if you think migrating is easy... think again! If you're not willing to give up some luxury in your life, if you're not willing to make sacrifices, if you're not willing to clean the bathroom or do your laundry, if you're not willing to forego a part of your social life (dating, watching movies, fine dining...) --- then migrating is not for you!

I always tell myself, "Life is what we make it".

We chose to be here in Canada because of the myriad of opportunities that are for the taking. we can do anything we choose to do, well the only constraint is that we have to work for it to get it as well. Nothing comes for free right, Jo?

Enjoy the new work, and the new year!
