Hmmm...I'm almost done with my vacation. The company that I'll be joining in in the next few days only gave me 17 days for my vacation but in that 17 days, I was able to accomplish so many things and I owe it to God for giving me such wonderful blessings. Three of the items listed down on my goals for 2012 were started and on it's way to completion. The canopy/awning that I wanted to put up in my current house was already done. Another major project that's part of my goals for this year is the replacement of roofing for my other house which I considered an investment as I am earning from it's monthly rental. This project is quite costly as there are major works to be done. We've decided to replace the entire roofing with steel trusses and install new GI sheets. Due to the high cost of materials now, having renovation works is such a pain in the neck but I don't have a choice coz I have to get it done as the entire roofing was already weak. Well, blame it to the termites. I'm worrying that it could not withstand the endless typhoons in the Philippines.
The project costs me a total of Php113,000 including the materials and labor. However, it is not the end of my expenses as I still need to install the ceiling which could come in a later date. The most important thing is the roof as this is the one protecting the house. It's a good thing that I was able to have it started before the rainy season. Now, the project is still ongoing and expected to be completed before end of this month.
Oh well, it is such a relief that I was able to start with it this early. The third one is the reactivation of my SSS from which I stopped contributing since I resigned from the previous company in the Philippines few years ago. Now, I was able to visit the SSS office to reactivate my membership, this time as OFW.
I'm happy that things are falling into places. My hard work has paid off. Well, I still have few more to go in my list but I am certain that with enough discipline and determination, I would be able to fulfill everything within this year.
I hope! Wish me luck...
