“Dear Foreign Retiree, Why you should retire in my town?” by Erica Anne B. Santiago
From the day you graduated College, your thinking about getting the job that you want. You want to work immediately to earn money for yourself, for your family and for you future. While looking for a job that is right for you, you will first experience some challenges or finish some process that is needed like covering letters and interviews before you can work at the job that you want. After getting the job, you have to work hard because you have to excel from the other employees and get a higher position. Sometiemes, you also need to sacrifice just to perform your job very well. For example, sometimes you need to sacrifice the time for your family because your company needs you. Sometimes, you need to go to far places if your work is there. My father is a seaman. In a year, he spent his nine months in the cruise where he works . The remaining three months were spent with us. As you can see, the allotted months for his work is obviously much longer than the months he spent for us. But we cannot blame him for he was just trying to sacrifice for our benefits. Me and my brother are studying and we also have our personal needs. He is sacrificing just to give us a bright future. That’s the reality. I know that all the retirees have experienced these kinds of sacrifices just for their loved ones. And I think that after retiring, they really deserve a place where they can spent those few more years and precious times with their family.
Everytime I heard the word Foreign Retirees, I always taught of the retired workers and employees that gave their life and work hard for their family. Just like the retirees from the Philippines, they are also human beings and they need some time for their family. Before their retirements, as I’ve said awhile ago, I know that they have also experienced sacrifices because they really love their job. Yes, they spent more than half of their life working because they are happy with their professions. Not only Philippines but also the other foreign countries were known to have dedicated and well-trained workers. They are willing to sacrifice just for their job. Everytime I see foreigners here in our country especially the old ones, it makes me feel proud because I know that they are happy to stay here in the Philippines and spent their vacations here. Our country is known for having scenic sites and tourist spots that are really popular all over the world. That’s why there are many foreigners who would comeback here in the Philippines every year just to visit their favorite destinations for their vacation and sometimes they rather chose to buy a place here and stay here permanently. These are just few of the reasons why I believe that the Foreign Retirees should choose Philippines as their second home and retirement destination.
To my dear Foreign Retirees, Why you should retire on my town?. Let me tell you the reasons why you should spent those few more years of your life here in our town. I’m only sixteen years old and as a youth, I would like to share to all of you the beauty of our country. Honestly, I was born hrere in Manila and this is the place where I grew up. Since I’m was still a a child, my family takes me to our provinces. Both in my mother and father side. I just can’t explain the excitement that I’m feeling everytime we had a trip that is out of town. When our family was staying in the province for a couple of weeks, I felt like I was in the other world. A different atmosphere, a different place and different people. I always see the green fields and the animals that ate the grasses. The sound of chirping birds and the cool breeze of the air. Everything was peaceful. We also often visit the beaches that adds a lot to my excitement. Those places were really wonderful! Aside from those beautiful places, I really admire the...
