When I was in the Philippines, hindi ako naapektuhan sa economic crisis Sir mel as in parang wala lng sa akin, kahit single pa ako, nagpapadala ako ng pera sa parents ko pero may pero pa rin ako for lakwatsa. When i came here in the US, dito ko lang na pifeel ang effect ng economiya.

Gosh, feeling ko parang ako na pinaka mahirap na tao. kahit hindi masyado naapektuhan ang job ng asawa ko,mahirap pa rin kasi tumaas ang mga bilihin, at gas,

Improtante [pa naman ang car dito, kaya palaging ubos pera pang gas. Pati teaching job ng husband hindi nag taas nga sweldo last eyar due to economic crisis haaay buhay parang life ano.

Kailan pa kaya magiging maganda ang economiya, parang lalong nag hihirap ang mundo. Buti diyan sa pinas, mahirap mn ang buhay may mga oras at araw na palagi kang nakataw, at enjoy all the time. We are used of the economic crisis and yet we know how to enjoy life despite of all the problems. Dito hirap kasi walang friends at kapit bahay na pwedi pasyalan para mag chicka chika buti nlng may blogging.

Buti ka pa Sir Mel, parang hindi naapektuhan ng economic downturn. heeh

nako korek si tsang shy kuya Mel...I completely agree with her...:)

kung tutuosin lang...mas prefer ko pang mamumuhay sa pinas kesa dito sa US...sabi nila land of opportunities daw ang america...greener pastures da....well, I disagree.

Sa pinas kahit mahirap ang buhay ang importante is sama-sama ang buong pamilya...kahit magkandarapa sa utang...na miss ko yung close family ties....siguro ok lang dito pag single ka...wala kang ibang iniisip....pero katulad ni tsang shy...feeling ko dito mahirap ako...lol!

About sa economic crisis...so far so good naman yung stability ng job ni hubby....he works as a computer programmer and at the same time he works part time sa AF Reserves...

Hubby said that if he loses his job, he might feel devastated and of course depression will occur...siguro uwi kami ng pinas...pag mawalan sya ng work...:)

sapat lang talaga yung sweldo nya sa bills, pagkain, at gas....kaya nga wala kaming maipon....buti pa si akesha may piggy bank...lol!

Most state workers here got laid off....and instead na yung work nila is 5 days, ngayon 4 days nalang...kahit regular ka sa govt dito pwede ka pa ring matanggal...yung BIL ko he got laid off from his job...it's already 6 months ans until now wala pa syang nakitang work.....

ikaw kuyaMel, para atang walang crisis jan sa family mo ah....you are living a good life....:)

salamat pala sa mga comments at dalaw...sensya na ngayon lang po nakabalik..busy kasi ako kanina....dami chores pag friday....sige po....have a great weekend...ingat! God Bless....:)

Hi Shy,
Tuwang tuwa ako pag nagko comment ka. Kasi full of sincerity ang mga comments mo. In other words, tutuong tao ka, hindi plastic. At hindi ka rin nagkukunwari na somebody special. Tama ka sa sinabi mo. Ang buhay sa Pinas ay masaya kahit mahirap. Magaling magadjust ang mga Pinoy maski ano pa mang kalamidad ang dumating. Anyway, I am praying for you my friend na sana umangat nang husto ang buhay mo. Mahirap ka ngang magkatraabaho diyan dahil me dalawang anak kang inaalagaan. Yun pa naman ang number one priority mo. Sana mag improve ang attitude ng mister mo para mas maging happy kayong pare pareho. Manalangin ka palagi at ilagak mo sa Panginoon amg iyong mga mahal sa buhay. Siya ang kakalinga sa kanila. Ilagak mo rin ang lahat ng kabalisahan mo sa Kanya at magkakaroon ka ng kapayapaan at kagaanan ng buhay. Ako'y dapat patay na matagal nang panahon dahil sa mga sakit ko, ngunit sa biyaya ng Diyos ay buhay pa rin ako para magpatotoo sa Kanya. Maraming salamat sa iyong dalaw at makabuluhang komento. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Pareho nga kayo ni Shy although sa tingin ko mas malalim ang kabigatan niya sa buhay. Anyway, ipinapanalangin ko kayong mga kaibigan ko na pagpalain kayo palagi ni Lord. Masarap nga ang buhay dito sa Pinas dahil me security ka sa extended family mo at sangkatutak pa ang mga kaibigan mo na masasandalan mo pag dumating ang mga unos ng buhay. Pero ang dapat nyong isipin ni Shy ay inilagay kayo ng Diyos diyan sa America for a purpose at yun ang dapat nyong madiskubre, ano ang purpose na yon. Hindi gumagalaw ang Diyos nang walang kadahilanan. Kailangang magtiwala lang tayo sa Kanya upang bigyan Niya tayo nang kalakasan at pagasa sa buhay. Lahat ng tao ay dumaranas ng mga pabigat sa buhay. Siguro tahimik lang ako tungkol dito dahil inilagak ko na ang buhay ko sa Panginoon at alam kong hindng hindi Niya ako pababayaan o kakalimutan dahil pngako Niya iyon. Nabubuhay ako sa mga Pangako ng Panginoon na pinanghahawakan ko hanggang sa aking kamatayan. Maraming salamat friend sa dalaw mo. Pakikiss naman ako kay Kesh. God bless you all always.

Agree din ako sa inyo lahat.. parang nasabi na nila ang gusto ko sabihin hehe.. Iba pa rin talaga ang Pinas, di mo mararamdaman ang kahirapan dahil sa mga loveones mo na lagi nakatawa. Nakaka-homesick talaga.

Siguro nga when you are finally becoming to care about what's going on with the world that also means na mature ka na.. dati kasi i never cared about politics, economics or whatsoever, basta isip ko lang kung ano magpapasaya sa akin. Life was so easy for me kasi syempre bata pa nun, dependent pa sa magulang..

Pero ibang iba na talaga ngayon.. About sa world economic crisis, affected kami at lahat ng mga malapit sa akin, sa pinas ang dad ko at mga kamag-anak ko. Kahit si hubby, at mga kaibigan nya. Ma-cocompare daw talaga ang economy nuon at ngayon, sobrang laki ng pinagbago. Thank God kasi kahit papano, sakto lang kami. WOrried din ako sa family ko sa pinas pero salamat din kahit papano ok sila. Hanggat sa meron kami maitutulong, tumutulong kami.

I always pray na sana kahit walang luho, wag lang magutom. I feel sad din minsan kasi as of now, sa house lang ako, si hubby lahat. Gusto ko talaga tumulong pero hindi pa pwedi. Kaya bumabawi na lang ako sa bahay.

Thanks sa mga advice mo sir Mel.. Nakakagaan talaga. Keep on inspiring us. God bless

I see so much indecision in my field everyone is afraid to make any kind of decisions.

It's a different time then I've ever known.

Hi Bambie,
All of us are affected by the world's economic downturn. That is why we should pray more and trust God that He will never leave us nor forsake us. There are so few options we can make and many times they fall short of what we want. We should entrust our lives to God and do the best we can through the opportunities God has afforded us. Lilipas din lahat ng ito. Thanks for your visit and honest comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dorothy,
Yes, these are hard times and they call for extraordinary courage and living faith in God. All these will come to pass. We should only trust God that He will always do what is best for all of us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

bingkee said...

Yea we are affected. We limit our dining out, cutting off unnecessary expenses, terminating our credit cards, and re-financing our house.

Pia said...

not at all. in fact i think this year is far better than the last two years for me. it's God's grace!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Bingkee,
I think the US is more affected by the economic crunch than the Philippines. Filipinos are already used to extreme financial downturns, they can easily cope with them . Too bad that you are personally affected by the economic crunch. Let us just hope that this will soon pass away. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi sis Pia,
I'm so glad to hear that. Praise the Lord for His wonderful blessings in your life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Mel,

Sa akin naman I think lahat affected kaya lang iba-iba tayo nang coping up. Sa amin ni hubby wala kaming anak pero we are supporting "as in literally supporting" my nieces and nephew back in Pinas dahil wala nga silang parents na nag-aalaga sa kanila.
Our coping up is we do really pray Mel, we don't forget to read the bible before we go to bed. Kung may kasabihang kapit sa patalim....kami ni hubby kapit sa Diyos...and we beleive in HIS words...and I can attest that God is really TRUE!! At yan ang sekreto sa buhay.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Very well said Kim. Kung lahat ng tao ay katulad mo, walang magiging sigalot sa mundo. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.
