Wow it's been a while. Apologies for the long hiatus. As if anyone cares haha. I've been pretty busy (obviously), mostly with work, renewal of documentation and other stuff. Last May, I renewed my passport since it's up for expiry on December plus I was up for work visa renewal. I got my passport last June (after a month, ugh) and I finally renewed my work visa in end-June.

It was really a relief to have my work visa renewed for another 2 years. Singapore has been very strict lately with the influx of foreign workers. In fact, some of my Filipino friends got their passes either rejected or demoted to the lower type. I can't blame the government though. I just feel grateful I could stay here longer. Towards the end of this year, I plan to apply for Permanent Residency for the 3rd time.

Anyway, it's been 3 months since I started gym and I'm darn happy I've lost 7kg. Slowly but surely. I've been sick though the past few days due to flu and have been giving in to my cravings but I hope to be back on track.

Earlier this month, I was in Manila and Cebu for a short 4 days. The trip was mainly for the Cebu townhouse turnover. Yey! I'm a homeowner! :-P Huge thanks to my Mom really. She has really helped a great deal, not only financially but more importantly by physically going to Cebu to handle all the admin stuff prior to turnover and minor renovations with the townhouse after the turnover. I love you Mom! :-)

I'll be broke for the next 8 years to pay for the monthly amortization haha, unless we get the place rented out. Either way, it's a great investment. I'm happy my mom influenced me to make this investment :-)

Cebu was the best! Food was not only great but cheap! Cebu is really an island paradise with the modern facilities of shopping and strip malls plus the most pristine and beautiful beaches. It was a quick getaway but truly worthwhile especially with my twin Johann and my parents coming along.

Next month, my trip to Gold Coast, Australia is up! I already applied for the visa last week and hopefully it's approved when I collect my passport this Wednesday. I was supposed to go with an "ex-friend" who booked the trip with me later on but to cut the story short, let's just say I'm going alone as initially planned. I haven't really planned yet what to do but I'm just thinking of taking it slow and just relax. It's just a short 4-day trip anyway, plus I'll only be in Gold Coast.

Next month, I'll also be applying for my Schengen Visa for the Germany trip on late-September. Ugh I'll be so broke this year hahaha. So have to work hardER for the money! so hard for the money! hahaha.
