My days in Manila started with going around touristic places and sightseeing While I was looking for a job as well.
As our earlier conversation with my Iranian-filipino friend while I was in Iran, we noticed that philippines has too many restaurants and hotels, and people love to eat outside! So we thought with my certificates and experiences would be easy to find a job. More we were looking, more issues came up, first was the language again and the other one was they didnt accept my Iranian Culinary certificates and Diploma.
This is one of the issues I think we should be careful when we study in Iran or any country, if we have plan to move out from there!
On the other hand was myself, even I was looking for a job and my filipino friend of my friend who started to teach me english was helping me, but honestly I was scared.
Yes! Even I have worked in Iran, but I was so scared to hear No from anyone!
Maybe all was coming from the way I grow up. I was the youngest child in our family and even after my dad pass away, everyone were trying to do almost whatever I wanted. I rarely heard No, but I had to face it!
I set again and I started to review my goals. What I wanted to be, etc.
All ended again to be a chef.
After all research, the suggestion from the hotel management or HR was having one of the philippines ‘s schools Diploma.
So after talking to my family, and having their support as always, I decided to look for a culinary school.
I have to add between, my sadness was there with me always as I was far from my family. But they always support me with their words, my uncle was telling: baba just do whatever makes you happy. Mom and aunt who are my hero in life always pushed me forward. My aunt was telling: there is nothing behind you, go forward and fallow your dreams, We are here for you.
My sister and brothers were my biggest motivation and help.
What is your goal in life? Have you ever write them down? Have you ever tru y to be honest with yourself? Write for me and lets talk about it.
