My American Dream!
I was fortunate to visit the US for several times since 1997. My first two travels were business-related undertakings with 3 months visa. Being a Filipino, it is really difficult to get a multiple entry in Uncle Sam’s land, but sometimes persistence, harwork and “lakas ng loob” matter and I was able to get a 10-year multiply entry in 2002 (few months after the New York bombing)!
Ive been there four times already and frankly I dont like to live there, despite my cousin’s encouragement. I dont know, but I still prefer to work in Manila for a 5-digit salary and be with family and friends. The reason why Im living (temporarily) abroad now because of my passion in life-time learning and travelling, and of course my family is the ultimate reason why Im always far far away from home.
