Saipan now….

Thinking about David Copperfield on how he keeps on doing his magic. Where does magic came from? How could magic can fool other people’s eye? Well, just wondering about what magic does Saipan have that alien workers, Filipinos, Chinese, Koreans, Bangladesh people would want to stay around even though the economy around here is bad. It’s hard to find a job. Some or most of the employers around here are now taking advantages and abusing their employees. Sponsorship is now rampant, meaning you have to pay $1,500.00 up to $2,000.00 just to have that called legal documents, that you are really employed by a certain employer. How come there are also a lot of illegal aliens roaming around now? Waiting for the federalization of this small island? Waiting for a chance of having a GREEN CARD or become a permanent resident of the island?

A new bill has been passed and starting January 1, 2008 it will become a Public Law. The new P.L. or bill that makes everyone confused and bewildered. There are some who does agree to it and of course, there are also who are against it. It really affects the employer and most of all, the employee.

One of it is, if your one-year contact is finish, there will be no more transfer for the employee. What will happen if your employer doesn’t want to renew your contract, then you have no choice. The employer must give a repatriation ticket and the employee should go back to his place of origin.

Next, if you do have a labor case, by then, you have to go back to your place of origin and can only come back if there would a hearing for the case. Then, the employee who filed the labor case would purchase his own ticket just for the hearing. What would happen next? There won’t be anymore Memorandum or TWA’s around.

If ever the employer renewed your contract, it is renewable up to 3 years and by then you have to exit.

Saipan got it’s magic…a place where people would love to stay…and these is another story……..

TFC show.....

I was bored, finished and done with all the things here inside the house when I suddenly thought of watching TFC show…It was WOWOWIE…..

The contestants are those who are going to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. I was touched and amazed by those kind of people. They stick together for half a century. They all have grown up children and even grandchildren. While Willie, the host of the show asked them what makes them stay together that long?….IT IS LOVE and UNDERSTANDING with the combination of PATIENCE…..being strong in times of hardships and of course putting God in the middle of a relationship.

As I was watching, I can’t help but admire those old ones and wishing for myself that it would happen to me….but alas, it will not….I know that everyone wishes for someone who could be with them through thick and thin, in health and in sickness, till DEATH DO US PART…a line from a wedding ceremony! With a lot changes now, with a lot of temptations, with different belief and minds now….It would be hard to one’s relationship to survive. One will attempt to save the relationship while the other won’t.

Love now easily fades…Some says that life and love is a gamble, be happy now and do whatever it is that pleases you…wherein there are times you are hurting others. If you are not happy and contented with someone, it is easy to find other person to fill in. A philosophy that some people follow nowadays.

I know life should go on with people who are hurting. Don’t lose hope….

December 31, I have a chance to perform again for the New Year Countdown in Hotel Nikko here in Saipan.

At first, i felt the nervousness but as the music flows..I dance with the rhythm and go with the flow of the music...

I was happy and smiling, dancing with the guest in the hotel...a fun filled event it is but when they turned off the lights and start the countdown...10...9...8...the tears just flowed down from my eyes because I know after this event I will be alone again....then I see the firecrackers.....wishing I would get rid these kind of feelings....

New year, new chapter...let's throw away the sadness, bitterness and we better open up our hearts and door for happiness...

my simple wish this new year...that I could possibly find peace.....

MY life...an ordeal!!!

I really don’t have enough time to blog or even post to some of my groups around here these past few days and weeks for my internet connection is so limited. I have so many things in my mind, things that I really love to share with you or just want to write it down for blogging is my outlet….Am I so lazy to do it or I just don’t want to express or open up myself around here because some people do misinterpret me.

My life ordeal here started before I came over last March 2007 and until now and it’s going to be 9 months now these coming December 16…..a very memorable day because it’s my only son’s 19th birthday! Asking myself, will I be in the Philippines then or still here in Saipan???? A question that even me can’t give the answer.

Saipan was good to me on my first few years around, starting November 2000, the very first time that I do step my foot on these small island that was called a US territory and was well known as Commonwealth of Northern Marianas. Culture shocked I am with what I have learned about the culture and people around here. Maybe the reason why this island is called Paradise Island and Temptation Island, well it says it all and I don’t think I should elaborate more about it or maybe this is just another story about Saipan.

I am anticipating things up, imagining and expecting a lot in coming back here. I’ve been out of the island for one year and half and stay away from all the things and people that reminds and hurt me. I don’t have any idea on what will happen but things around has never been good to me for the last 8 months of my stay and it is until now.

Confused I am, wherein I really don’t know what is in store for me. What I really want and need and what has God wants me to do…

December it is now. I will be all alone, by myself these holiday season, Yes, nobody around me….If only I could bring back those times wherein they pushed me to come over here…maybe…maybe I won’t come and will just stay back home to the Philippines. I’ve got no more life here….I have to make a decision NOW or else…….

AND thinking DID I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION OF COMING AND STAYING OVER HERE???? HAYYY….

Iknowthat some or maybe all of my friends are wondering what happened to me for I am not able to go online for quite sometime.

Friends, I am still here in Saipan, alive and kicking and now staying with a friend and her family. I can't go online same as before. If you are worried about my situation, I am more worried....I will let you know then next time.

Right now, I am missing blogging and posting to my groups. I am now out of circulation but for sure I won't ever leave this site for I found all my TRUE FRIENDS here!!!!

Just keep on praying for me....Thanks!

October 5, I received a call from a friend, I was really surprised when he told that he was here on the island for a short visit, which is really short for he came that day and leave the same day and spent just a few minutes with me...

He came and pick me up where I am staying that time. We used those minutes roaming around looking for a place where we could have a bite for lunch. We ordered adobo and tortang talong. He seem to miss those kind of foods. We did talked about few things around.

It was so nice of him to remember me and spend some of his time with me while he was around. He helped me during the time that I badly needed someone and I know until now he will never get tired of it....

Danny, Thanks a lot and it was nice seeing you here in Saipan!Hope I could meet you again....next time!!!!
