No Chance to Work Abroad

What if my EPEC had not been approved?  

From the very first time that my EPEC was rejected, my whole world seemed dark and I can't believe what had just happened.  I felt like I'm a useless being, don't know what to do and my options are narrowing.  Staring at the MOM rejection email is so painful.  I told my wife that this I think is my destiny.  Maybe I had been disapproved because I have something to share here in our country, Singapore is not the place where I should be...

This is what I was reminiscing few days ago.  What my life in the Philippines be like if my EPEC was not approved by Singapore?

The fact that I am that paranoid enough to leave my country, I still want to be with my family.  The reason for me to work in Singapore is to earn more money and experience.  What do I mean about MORE is that I was earning in the Philippines, but it's not enough.  My family is expanding, growing the need of financial and taking away my financial freedom.  This is not what I want for me and my family.

Working here is just temporary for me because I know that I'm still hanging on a thread.  I want to be a PR, (Permanent Resident) but still don't know if I will be approved.  What if I'm not...?

So just few hours ago, I started looking for something for my Option B.  This is an option for me if everything about my Singapore Life will not work out well.

I stumbled upon this e-book of Kenny Yap.  He is an entrepreneur who have been able to succeed through selling things and not working with employers.

What I will do is to follow these tips and might as well go back in my homeland and do business together with my family, where I could hug my kids and wife everyday. Showing them the love not in Yahoo Messenger, Skype or Facebook...but through the real hands of a Father and husband.
