In the blink of an eye, I have been in the Philippines for more than three years. This month, I returned to my residence in Manila for a period of rest. The vacation time is one month, and I drove to the suburbs for a drive. The Philippines is a small place, but the people here are really rich, and there are many luxury cars that are rare in China.
The National Museum of the Philippines, when I was driving back, I passed by here and took two pictures. It is the same as a few years ago, and there is almost no change.
Dawson Tomas University, if you have the opportunity to come to the Philippines, you must come here to see it, it is quaint, and the tropical plants in Manila are quite different from those in our country. There are quite a lot of international students here, from the United States and Germany, and sometimes Seeing my smirk, I couldn’t understand what he said, and they couldn’t understand what I said.
Behind this university is my home.
I didn’t plan to settle abroad, but I wanted to live in a more convenient way, so I bought this house. It was the one on the third floor. The house price was not high.
The house I renovated is not big, but it is enough for me to live alone.
Rolex gold yacht, I have no hobbies. I really like to buy watches. I have bought six or seven watches in the past few years abroad. This one is my favourite.
Manila is incomparable to China. The economy is underdeveloped, and high-rise buildings are rare. Except for a few tall buildings in the central area of Manila, other places are low-rise bungalows, and there are no big shopping malls. Know how to spend.
Going abroad can really make money, but it’s also really lonely. As some people say, it’s so lonely. If you have a career in China, you don’t need to come out, but if you don’t have any success in your country, you might as well go out.
In the past few years, I have earned more than 1.7 million US dollars in total, and I will not come out again when I have the opportunity to return to China. There is nothing to say about my personal experience. An ordinary worker in a factory works three shifts without night or day. I have a girlfriend who is also in the factory. Later, the director pried it away. I gambled, but I lost the tens of thousands of dollars I had saved. I really had no way out before I thought of going abroad. The reason why I chose to come to the Philippines is that I met a friend in QQ who worked in CG Group and told me that I could go abroad. I said I had no experience and I didn’t know what to do. He took me to apply for a tourist visa, and I remember that it was the winter of 2018. He helped me with my identity, got a tourist visa, and left immediately. New Year’s Eve was spent in the Philippines.
This is a photo I took when I was working at CG Group. My colleague took it for me. I thought it looked good and left it. In short, the work is very good. When I first arrived, I felt a little strange and nervous. Good. Anyone who knows a thing or two about gaming-type games knows CG Group. Yes, I work from that company, which is in the business department. The employees of the company work in this building, and they also live in this building. The men live on the 8th floor, and the women live on the 9th floor. The work is also very easy. Our publicity department works shifts in the morning and afternoon, from 9:00 to 3:00 in the morning, and the afternoon shift is from 4:00 to 9:00 in the evening.
There is a cafeteria in the company, which is a kind of buffet. I lived in the dormitory for more than half a year at first. There was no private space, and two people lived in one room. So I bought that house in Manila and lived outside, but I still came to the company. Eating is not for saving money but for convenience.
Work is the same thing. No one is urging you. If you have the attitude of earning money, then work hard. At first, when I went there, I could get up to 70,000 yuan a month, which is 70,000 US dollars, which is equivalent to more than 400,000 yuan, which is almost unthinkable in the country.
Colleagues go to get off work and drink every day and then go to sleep. The Philippines is good for everything, except that there are not many entertainment venues. In recent years, I have bought a car, a house, and a few watches. There is not much overhead anymore.
Sometimes I think that money is just a number. I want to make money when I don’t have money. I really don’t think it makes any sense to make more money. After two years of working, I’m ready to go back to China. Live well.
