Blogging from Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati. We're here for the night for our flight back to Singapore tomorrow. To be honest this trip to the Philippines was an impulsive yet carefully thought decision.  I was having a lot of personal stress and problems lately that I needed the comfort of home to destress and relax and think about things.

My heart tells me to stay here. For the longest time, I've always wanted to come home. Be with my family. Maybe work here or open up a business.

My mind tells me no. It looks fun and easy but living here is actually tougher... besides I have a stable job back in Singapore. Coming back would be a financial suicide (or the biggest gamble of my life).

This is my longest stay in Philippines after leaving 7 years ago. I don't want to go back. Apart from work. There's nothing to go back to. After a week of "rest" and thinking. I haven't arrived in any decision. My whole family is waiting. I don't know where to go. What to do.

Just as I was about to give up. I saw someone share this on facebook:

5 Rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less

Ha! If only it was that easy.
