There are quite a few who emailed me about my for good decision, asking me questions on my plans, am I retiring and the like. I feel like those question has a hidden question,"Why are you going home? Wala kang mapapala sa Pilipinas. Mahirap doon."
Am I retiring?
My friends, I am not retiring. I am still young and I am just (turning) 28-years-old. I can still work! The idea is working not because I have to, but because I want to.
I could work there, spend the salary for bills and such without touching my investments and/or savings.
I would continue to live simply. I am use to simple living and I don't worry about lifestyle inflation.
Simple living and my bahay kubo
I will be living in a bahay kubo in the province. I am not a city girl. Province-living suits me much better than the hustle and bustle of a city life, plus the cost of living in the province is way cheaper.
- Buying a Farm
This, I thought, would be my ultimate dream. I want to own a land maybe 5 hectares or less where I could build my bahay kubo and where I could grow my own food. I am also interested in learning about agriculture so I can grow crops. Magbubukid lang ang drama!
* I have been looking for land somewhere in Zamboanga del Sur (I grew up there) . A quick Google search shows that 5 hectares of farm land in that province would range from 800,000 to 2 million depending on the location. I want to see the land personally first before buying so this goal could wait till I go home.
- Real State
• • Since moving in the province is a top priority, I would rent out my townhouse in Cebu. Extra income. Chaching!
•• I also have a small land ( 80 sq.) near newly-built SM in Cebu. I am planning to build rooms there so I could rent it out to the workers. I also heard that they are planning on building a second I.T. Park nearby so renting a room will be a profitable business, if the proposed I.T Park project would push through
