Wow... Summer season in Manila is taking its toll, heavily draining me! It's a lot of fun getting to know more people and knowing my way around more, but this weather is getting me down! Big mistake today of wearing silk. Walking around the business district is really great, especially when you got great company. I'm quite proud of myself knowing something new everyday and I'm learning to love this city more and more. Forget the traffic, forget the pollution. I think I get on more with the foreigners in this place, the expats who actually live here (not the psychological liars who says they're here for good just to get in your pants) ... They teach me things about my country that I had no clue before!
I've been thinking of going vegan like everyone else, it seems to be the trend. But then when I think about all the bacon I'll be missing out on, I change my mind almost too quickly. At least I'm now regular at exercising, I've been pushing myself to get the best shape, being nearly 42, and I think I'm doing really well so far. I'm enjoying life, already got plans to travel somewhere amazing very soon. I've pitched a gold mine idea to my sales manager the other day and his face lit up, and asked if it's been done before. I doubt it but even if it is, I'm still going to strive to be the best. I don't have this name for nothing. My last name in this country means "to win". I plan on living up to that, and successful. Very successful.
The promise I made myself is to make my mark in this city, and to be proud I made the big jump. I'm slowly but surely getting there... One day at a time.
