Nostalgia---Then My Journey in Japan Has Begun...

I lost my stepfather when I was still 9 years old and our Mom raised us up working in our own business, a small canteen. Due to poverty, I decided to work as an entertainer/dancer here in Japan--they called us Japayuki at that time. I stayed at a promotion for a year with a lot of practice, dance lessons, and then passed, received my license and took an audition. Working away from home ain't easy-- halos mamatay ako with all the homesickness. I love my work in Japan and I'm not ashamed from where I came from. Because of that, I have supported my family and they had a better life than before although 'some people' thinked that working as an entertainer in Japan ain't a decent one. Wala akong pakialam sa mga sinasabi nila kasi di naman sila ang magpapakain sa pamilya ko and the fact is nilayuan nila kami. I strived hard to bring bacon at home but still my feet on the ground. Hinde ako nagbago sa pakikitungo sa kanila kahit na dina-down nila ako and my family. I may sound bitter here pero wala na sa akin ang mga nangyari.

I have ups and downs in life but I'm blessed that I have my family--yun lang ang meron ako.

it doesnt matter kung ano ang iisipin ng iba ate izza. ang importante hindi ka gumawa ng masama o naging pabigat sa kapwa para buhayin ang pamilya mo. i aso have friends na nagwork jan sa japan and yet they are helpful at really down to earth. although may ilan daw na pinay na nakatrabaho nila na sobrang mapang api sa kapwa.. well saludo ako sau.. isa kang mabuting asawa, anak, ina at kaibigan :) and im glad to have u as my friend sa ere.. :)
