Live Present, Live Now, Live Well

About the same date in 20 years ago, after my polytechnic diploma final exam, I took a bus with a luggage bag traveling to Kuala Lumpur to look for a job and continue my degree study in UTM, Technology University of Malaysia.

I was very excited, partly was because another new chapter of my life has begun. However the main reason is my girlfriend was studying in KL as well.

I shared a room with another 3 friends in one of the apartment in Cheras for the first 2 months.

I moved out and occupied a room in a double storey linked house.

The quality of life had downgraded so much after I moved out from my home town. The tap water is yellowish, the toilet was always dirty and the toilet drain is always clogged. Worse off is at that time, water supply crisis was haunting the KL residents.

After a few months, I moved to another house with some new friends. I painted my room before I move in. Things got better because we invested a unit of water purifier. No more clogged toilet drain however cleanliness was still far behind what I enjoyed back home.

The stayed in the third  house for 5 years until I got married, and my wife and me moved to a rented house.

The privacy that we enjoyed and customization of stuffs to our liking was the experience we never had when we both stayed at respective bachelor house.

The joy of having a home even though it was built on a rented house is worthy and necessary.

I regretted that for the past 5-6 years, I did not rent a house to build a comfortable home. 

Living life does not means we need to compromise the quality of life in present for future. 

Live now, live present, build a comfortable place called home.

Miascor Lounge at Terminal 1, Ninoy Aquino International Airport

The traffic condition in Manila city is consider very congested. A 5 to 6km distance may take you about 2 hours if you travel by car.

I also heard that travelling from Makati city to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport can take as long as 4 hours, and it is common. Having said that I have never encounter such horrible situation, maybe because I will request to use Skyway instead of let the driver decide which route to go.

Because of the unpredictable traffic situation, my Philippines friends always advise me to depart to airport 4 hours before my flight departure time. I think this is a logical advise, however if the flight schedule is delayed, which is very common in Manila, I will end up having to wait for 3-5 hours before taking a 4 hours journey flight in the plane.

The airport is descent, however with very limited choice of F&B, and the "turtle" speed broadband from Globe or Smart, the waiting time of 3-5 hours are kind of challenging.

The only way out is to find a descent place to chill, work or perhaps a "me time".

The only bet will be the airport lounge.  As Enrich member, I will be able to entity the lounge once I qualify for Gold member. I am 9000 Enrich miles away from getting there, hope by January 2018, when I visit Manila again, this Miascor lounge will be a nice place for me to spend my 3-5 hours time in the airport.
