Ang Dream Job ko..




And so ngayon alam ko na. na alam na pala nila na aalis na ako. Mangingibang isla na ako. Yes.. balik na ako sa aking home sweet home. Mamumubok at magtatanim ng kamote at kamoteng kahoy. At mag-aalaga ng mga bibe, manok at kambing. Magtatanim ng palay at mag aararo.


Kani-kanina lang ay nagbalak akong mag siesta (tulog actually) sa aking lunch break sa aking desk. Kaso biglang nag spark sa akin si Co-worker (hindi niya tunay na pangalan) na naka base sa Sydney.

Don't leave us.... :'-(
[11:57 AM]  
;)
[11:57 AM]  
I just heard from Syla (hind niya tunay na pangalan)  that you have resigned :'-(:'-(
Me
[11:58 AM]  
hi co-worker.. oh know..  (kinabahan ako mag English, una palang mali agad)
[11:58 AM]  
*oh no..
Co-Worker
[11:58 AM]  
we will miss you
Me
[11:59 AM]  
well. I didn't want to. but i need to.. (may drama pa akong nalalaman, pero it’s true! Ang hirap magi sip ng sagot dito. Grabe. Tagal ko bago naka reply)
[11:59 AM]  
me too! I will miss you all.
Co-Worker
[12:01 PM]  
Will you please tell me if there is something we should be doing differently or better, to keep our smart BA's like you?  (really? Parang hindi naman ako smart e. I can’t feel it. I’m so bobo kaya. Baka pampalubag loob lang ito para kunyari d mo maramdaman na hindi ka smart. hahaha)
[12:03 PM]  
because we hate to lose you...
Me
[12:03 PM]  
well. on my case this isn't an issue about offers, benefits or salary or whatever package that is. my reason is just personal. Like I need to go home to be with my parents especially my mom. That's why I need to transfer.  (hirap ecompose nito! Grabe! Dugo na talaga ilong ko)
[12:04 PM]  
it wasn't really easy by I need to choose my priority. (wrong gramming na naman! Anu vey!)
Co-Worker
[12:04 PM]  
oh well I totally understand and good for you. I bet your parents are happy about it :)
[12:05 PM]  
that will be worth it :)  (bait talaga nito! Hay buti pa sya)
Me
[12:05 PM]  
i already got attached with the company and the people. so it really is heartbreaking for me to leave too.  (true naman at some point. Kahit d ganun ka ganda ang offer nila)
[12:05 PM]  
yes they are happy. especially my mom who leaves there alone. (kinakabahan mag English. Teka google yung spelling. Hahaha)
Co-Worker
[12:06 PM]  
did you already find another job in your hometown? maybe you can telecommute? :)
[12:06 PM]  
or will you be caring for your mo,
[12:06 PM]  
mom
Me
[12:07 PM]  
not yet. but I'm already scounting. :D (may kasinungalingan ito! Hahaha. Magsisimula na pala ako sa June3. Hehehe)
[12:07 PM]  
* scouting.
Co-Worker
[12:07 PM]  
this may be a stupid question but is there good internet access? if so did you ask if you can work remotely for SST still?  (hindi stupid yan. Bundok nmn kasi yun. hahaha)
Me
[12:08 PM]  
yes there is good internet access. and that have not crossed my mind actually. (ah may cross te? Ako na!)
Co-Worker
[12:10 PM]  
If this is something you are interested in, I will ask Melinda and Violet at the Sydney end as well. has a decent infrastructure that we can do this. :) This is what I do - work from home... (decent? No! putol-putol nga network ko lagi L. Ang infra minsan sasagot sayo ng “d ko alam” like what??? Infra ka nga e.. hay naku..)
[12:10 PM]  
maybe it is first time for Manila office but I think we should try to keep you if we can!! :)
[12:11 PM]  
my opinion not official HR opinion hahaha (I know hindi sila papayag! Sila pa., *bitter???*)
Me
[12:12 PM]  
its actually interesting, but I'm not sure if that's possible in here though.. and as far as I know they're already hiring another BA as replacement.
Co-Worker
[12:16 PM]  
well if you are interested it can't hurt to ask... I am not sure how Manila office works but I think good BA's are hard to find anywhere, its not so simple as hiring a new person. :) (true. Mahirap pag-aralan ang isang system)
Me
[12:18 PM]  
i don't know.. it feels like it's too much to ask since I haven't been that long in the company to be able to get such privilege. but it does sound exciting.  ( hindi nga kasi ako umabot ng 2yrs mnlang.. 1 month nalang sana.)
[12:22 PM]  
well there was an instance before, though she was a dev, and asked if its possible for here to work from home, but I think she was not permitted. but I don't know.  (wrong gramming na namn! Ay teka! Typo error yan. Nyahaha. Pampalubag loob)
Co-Worker
[12:22 PM]  
I am going to ask Melinda (HR in Sydney). Developers grow on trees, good BA's don't :P (d nga??)
Me
[12:23 PM]  
that sounds discriminating. hahaha
[12:23 PM]  
thanks co-worker!
Co-Worker
[12:23 PM]  
hahaha yes I am allowed to be biased because I used to be a developer :D
[12:24 PM]  
anyway it doesn't hurt to ask these things... we'll see what happens
Me
[12:24 PM]  
now I know why you were reading codes..
Co-Worker
[12:24 PM]  
yep :D
Me
[12:25 PM]  
i guess so. thanks a lot co-worker!
Co-Worker
[12:25 PM]  
no worries :)
Me
[12:26 PM]

Nawala ang antok ko nito. Hindi dahil interesting, but nahirapan ako mag-isip sa English englishan na ito. Hahaha. To be honest gusto ko rin ng work from home. Hindi magastos, pero I don’t think kaya ko ito. Madali kasi ako ma distract. 

Ano nga ba ang mga benefits ng isang telecommuting worker? Ito ang mga naisip ko:
  1. No need maligo para pumunta ng office.
  2. No need magbihis para pumunta ng office.
  3. No need magmadali dahil malelate na.
  4. No need mag travel para pumunta ng office.
  5. You can work on you PJs or kahit nakahubad pwede.
  6. Walang gastos sa pamasahe
  7. Walang traffic
  8. You can work kahit sa anong position ang gusto mo. Nakadapa, nakatuwad, nakatayo, naka tihaya. OK lang. walang problema.
  9. You can work anytime
  10. Hindi mo narin need magready ng babaonin mo
  11. Hindi mo kailangan mamoblema ng allowance for everyday kasi nasabahay ka naman.
  12. Hindi ka magkaka vehicular accident kasi nasa bahay kalang naman.

Pero ano naman ang mga negative side nito?
  1. Boring nasa bahay lang lagi,
  2. Walang lunch out with officemates
  3. It’s either you are always working or you are not working at all.
  4. Wala biruan sa pantry with officemates
  5. Wala kang makikitang kakaiba on your way to work.
  6. Lagi ka dapat on call pag may kailangan sayo.
  7. Mahirap mag concentrate sa bahay kasi maraming distractions.
  8. Laging nasa chat or telephone lang ang usapan nyo ng officemates. D kaya nasa email lang.
  9. Mangangamoy ka kasi makakalimutan mong maligo.

At maraming pang iba..

But I don’t think possible mangyari ito. Alam ko naman ang mga tao sa company e. at ang mga boss dito. Think negative! Masama mag expect. Hehehe. 1 more week! Pero ang dami ko pa need taposin. :( . Tsaka, may work na nga ako. ahihihi.

Pero kung totoo man ang sinabi ni Co-worker nakakatuwa rin isipin kahit papaano may silbi rin naman pala ako.Naging helpful rin pala ako at some point. Kasi ako mismo sa sarili ko hindi ko masabi na good ako or smart. Kasi hindi talaga e.. But hearing that. No reading something like that (chos! natutu ng english correction ang lola!) It sounds uplifting (me ganun??). sana totoo. :)

Malapit na Friday! Hello weekend!
