^^ako twice na naka-try. yung una sa bigdeal package tour papuntang genting. wts travel yung agency. sa experience ko medyo matagal sila mag-reply. as in 2 weeks ata bago nag-confirm ng booking namin. ok  naman sa min yung tour. sulit for a short getaway. upgraded ba seats namin paguwi :)

yung second time sa groupon naman. eto na ang kalbaryo. far east travel agency. package tour. so ayun, excited kami, ang aga aga gumising para sa byahe tapos pagpunta namin sa ferry, biglang sabi e wala daw kaming ticket. tawagan daw yung travel agency. may couple din na nauna sa min na nag-cocomplain. tawag kami ng tawag sa far east pero walang sumasagot ng phone. sabi na lang nung sa ferry, kung gusto namin matuloy e kami na lang muna magbayad ng lahat tapos makipag-coordinate sa agency para sa refund. yung naunang couple tumuloy na lang. kami nagpaiwan. takot kasi kami what if pagdating dun e wala ding ginawang pakikipag-coordinate yung agency sa pi-pickup sa min sa tour, pati na din sa hotel.

tumuloy kami sa office nila directly para mag-complain. may isang girl dun tapos sabi sa min may system problem daw kesyo may nag-resign daw na staff kaya nagulo records nila. so ayun may pina-sign na form sa min for refund tapos huminig ng copies ng vouchers namin. tinanong ko anong mangyayari dun sa mga tumuloy sa byahe nila? kung sa ferry lang ba nagka-prob ng coordination? sabi nya, totally wala talagang nagawang arrangements sa mga nag-avail ng promo. balak na lang nila i-refund case by case. (grabe, sana sinabihan na lang nila kami ng mas maaga na may prob. super hassle talaga. nasayang lang mga leaves namin. mas nakakaawa yung mga tumuloy ng byahe)

ang sabi bibigyan kami ng refund after 3 weeks. that was may 2012. anong petsa na? puro excuses lang. actually meron na ngang group sa fb ng mga unhappy customers ng feta. dun lang ako nakakakuha ng updates sa refunds.

buti papuntang batam lang yung package namin. nabasa ko may iba bali, phuket pa yung mga nakuhang packages, until now wala pa kong nakitang nakakuha ng refund from far east. yung groupon mabuti na lang nag-refund sa min agad.

so ayun, before po kayo kumuha ng travel packages, magandang i-research nyo muna yung reviews dun sa agency para safe. :)

so sad naman yung experience nyo sis. parang totally turn na tuloy ako sa mga travel deals na yan.

in other trivial news. may rice na pala ang kfc dito. about darn time!  ;D

and showing pala ang suddenly it's magic dito in many golden village theaters. wala lang. natuwa lang ako  ;D and i hope its the start of regular screenings of filipino films here.

^^naku sis, super super hirap na talaga makahanap ng work dito.

marami na kaming kilalang di pinalad at umuwi na lang ng pinas. meron namang isa pinalad sa dubai after di nakahanap ng work dito ng 3 months.

meron na nga ding ibang umuuwi na lang din for good kasi hindi na na-rerenew yung pass kahit 5 years na working dito. kahit gano ka ka-gusto ng employer mo, kung rejected naman yung pass e balewala din. super higpit na talaga.

actually di ko na ine-encourage yung mga friends ko na magsugal dito. sabi ko na lang, mag-apply sila online tapos pag may sure ng work o interview e saka na lang pumunta dito. para safe.

may iba namang nagta-try at sinsuswerte pa din dito. ayun, usually mga it :)

A lot of my friends are in SG now and are now going there. Some have tourist visa and some dito na nag-apply and pinapunta na sa SG. Okay po ba ang income sa SG? Na-curious ako bigla kasi ang dami kong friends andyan at may mga papunta pa.

^sis, nakapavague ng tanong mo.  Daming factors, sa sweldo, etc.  There's a thread called "Singapore job hunters".  Baka masagot tanong mo. 

Pang SG residents (workers, PR and citizen) thread kasi to hindi queries about finding work here.  This thread is about living in Singapore.

^Ako di pa.  Nahihilo pa rin kahit na more than a year na ako dito.  Sa MRT, I inhale / exhale on the other direction.  Pag both direction, lipat talaga ako ng lugar.  Masakit kasi sa ulo pag tumagal tagal.

^^ after more than a year na-immune na ako ng slight. na-realize ko lang yun nung nag-business trip ako for two months tapos pagbalik ko eh hilong-hilo ako pagsakay ng tren (so back to zero na naman ako).

lagi akong may dalang vicks inhaler. para kunwari may sipon (kasi if mag-spray ng pabango medyo halata). pero if di ko talaga kaya bumababa talaga ako ng bus/train. :p

ako kasi almost 2 yrs na di pa din immune pero feeling ko lumakas yung tolerance level ko. haha ;P

one time nasa mrt kami ni hubby tapos sabi nya lipat kami ng pwesto. sabi ko wag na kasi nakaupo na ko nun. tapos pagbaba namin, sabi nya sa kin, ano ka ba, di mo ba naamoy yung katabi mo? haha may naamoy na pala sya pero ako wala ;P

prob ko lang talaga dito kasi sa opis. grabe, almost everyday na lang yung isang kasama namin ang lakas ng sipa ng amoy. sakit sa ulo. e sa direction nya pa naman galing yung hangin ng aircon. huhu. nagtitiis lang ako kasi pangit naman sa resume na aalis ako ng less than 1 yr stay sa isang company. saka nagiisip pa ko ng ibang reason sa pagalis kahit ang reason ko talaga e di ko na matiis yung amoy. grabe. di ko alam kung once in a blue moon lang ata sya maligo. waaah. kung nasa posisyon nyo ako, titiisin nyo ba?

vicks din gamit ko, yung ointment saka yung menthol na pang intsik na parang oblong yung lalagyan. pinapahid ko sa ilong saka sa ulo ko. try ko nga bumili ng shang oil. lately di na kasi gumagana yung mga pangontra ko ;P

almost two years na din pero hindi pa immune pero medyo nagimprove na ang tolerance ko
merong time hindi ko talaga kinaya eh nagtakip ako ng hanky i know it might seem rude kaya lang better option na yun kesa magsuka ako sa train hindi naman ako makababa kasi nagmamadali na din ako papasok sa work

tapos lagi ko pang fear na kumakapit sakin ang amoy haha so talagang pagbaba ko sa bus or train ay nagspray ako ng pabango kasi kumakapit at susundan ka ng amoy haha

meron din akong katabi ng table na office mate ko na hindi kanais nais ang amoy naku pumupwesto ako as far away as possible ayoko lan minsan pag nakikipagusap yun todo lumapit haha tsaka yung chair ko pinangalanan ko na kasi napansin ko kumakapit ang amoy nila sa chairs
