Good news, I finally found myself a rental pad. I am in the corner pad 3rd floor by the river. So love the chi, lots of wind and most of all, lots of privacy. Just moved last Saturday and this will be my third night. Had no internet for the past two days and just finally got my prepaid broadband emergency stick working. Still waiting for the internet guy but will have the set-up done in a few days. I have pretty much everything set-up except the living room area. Will leave the walls empty till I start painting again. After all this years, only now I get the urge to paint..I found some oils in the bookstore but not so many choices. However, that will do for now. Lots of space-very ideal for painting and the smell of turpentine will not affect me because of the big window space. Plus, the good side the distance from here to my family’s house is like 10-15 minute walk. No problem commuting there.
I found this place Thursday; made the deal on Friday and moved Saturday. My landlords only wanted me and nobody else. It is so meant to be. When you will it, you find it. Always true!
The sweetest type of heaven is home — nay, heaven itself is the home for whose acquisition we are to strive the most strongly. Home, in one form and another, is the great object of life. It stands at the end of every day’s labor, and beckons us to its bosom; and life would be cheerless and meaningless, did we not discern across the river that divides it from the life beyond, glimpses of the pleasant mansions prepared for us.

As you know, I love this place so much…That day, I was like in heaven..Total happiness.
Nature is what I crave for..Not really a city and mall person, I much prefer to be close to nature than among-st sea of people . So this place helped me decide where to live, I decided today to move to Bicol instead of Manila.
The provincial rate is a lot lower than Manila. However, with my ingenuity and creativity, I will find a way to triple or quadruple my earnings. I find that I am more creative and energetic when surrounded by nature.
Plus, my second blog will help promote an organic Bicol based product. And by living here, I will be able to help and promote Bicol Tourism too by showing all my wonderful adventures.
So the order from my landlord was really a blessing…This could be my calling.
I would like to extend my gratitude to the owners for their hospitality during my visit. I never forget people who treat me with kindness.

Please forgive me for not visiting your lovely blogs as it has been crazy lately for me. I am currently in Legaspi and had a meeting with a trader earlier today. It was a three hour meeting and we both left happy. This meeting is for my second blog which will launch in one month. It is something I am very passionate about for the longest time now so hang on for the big day. A possible way to earn money while blogging.
Plus, deciding where to live whether in Manila or Bicol. Manila cost of living is higher but pay is higher. Bicol cheaper cost of living but lower pay. However, lots of nature and lots to blog about. I miss cycling and I cannot do that in Manila. I have no choice but I need to move by my landlords decision to sell the house and family is coming over too.
Alot to weigh in, can I work and leave on my own? If I decide to live in Manila, who do I stay with..If I decide to work and live in Bicol, can I afford the freedom of being on my own and afford the mini excursions I crave for…In Manila, I could not do outdoor exercises but in Bicol, I can and get back into shape again…
Am I upset? A bit but things happen for a reason . This was not part of the plan but God always makes the planning at the end…
What to do? What to do?
