Wine & Cheese Immigration Night

When I say that I would never get used to saying goodbye, it is because my family (siblings) are all living in different countries and places. It is always a sad moment whenever we would say goodbye and would send them to their flights. 



As such, I always get asked if I didn't want to work or live abroad? I know personally I cannot (yet) because I am the only kid here staying with my parents. It is something that I haven't really given much thought of. All I know is, I just wanted to go visit places and be a tourist. I could imagine how hard it is to really live and work in a certain country. Imagine the cultural differences, language (or accent) barrier, work ethics and weather.

The longest I have lived in a another country was for one month. But it was easier because we live in a hotel, we have allowance,  and there's housekeeping to take care of the laundry. 

Personally I know I am not yet ready to live and work abroad, because:

1. I am not financially secured. Moving in another country requires more money than living here.  
2. I am not yet ready to leave my life in Manila. Still having fun here!
3. I am not yet ready to take BIGGER risks. I am still living a risky life now. 
4. I am not yet ready to change my last name (what?). Okay, that's a different story :p

But these points make me feel like I am ready to live in another country:

1. I am open to new cultures.
2. I can live in a really cold country. 
3. I am ready to learn new language. 


For those who wish to live and work abroad and need assistance, they can check out Fil-Global Immigration Services Corporation (FGISC) , a world-class company that started in the Philippines offering immigration and university placement to the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and many others. The company is composed of professionals from many different sectors of industry who provide people from all walks of life  a stepping stone to achieve their dreams to study, work and live overseas.

I got invited to the third anniversary of Fil-Global Immigration Services Corporation held at Roberts Hall of Time Plaza, UN Avenue last August 7, 2017. During the Wine & Cheese Immigration Night, I learned that Fil-Global has helped many workers, students and immigrants in ensuring that their relocation is a smooth process. FGISC got other service offices that includes Fil-Global immigration, FG Creatives, JVB Travel & Tours, and PTE Academic Centre, which offers various English  programs designed to meet the demands of diverse discipline.

JVB Travel and Tours is the official company of Fil-Global Corporation founded in London which is composed of mix-sector in the industry of Nursing Health Care, Socio-Civic, Health Management, Employment, Business Development and Marketing, and Job Placement, Banking and Finance. This ensures that professionals from different fields will receive guidance during immigration. 

While PTE Academic Center offers various English programs tailored to the needs of students or professionals who need to acquire specific English communications skills. Courses and tests are conducted online, and oral tests are scheduled. 

Living abroad is a big change. I know it is the decision that I have to face sooner (or later). At this time, it is good to know that there are people and organizations that could help me once I am ready to relocate.

How about you? Are you ready to live abroad?
