Essential Factors That You Should Consider Before Moving Abroad

Wherever we are in the world and whatever we are doing, it is always going to seem like the grass is greener on the other side. In some scenarios, this is true. In most cases, there is somewhere better, but also somewhere worse than we live now and the opportunities are always going to be different. For those people that are not prepared to settle for what they have now, there is the possibility of starting a new life in another country. It’s an exciting prospect; a new country and a new life. It is important to have a clear vision of why you are going and what you hope to achieve when you get there. The realist, rather than the optimist, is going to be much more satisfied when they actually move. Here are some things to consider. 

Language Barriers 

Like business owners have barriers to entry when they enter a new market, people looking to move abroad are going to have similar problems. Depending on the places you are looking at, you might have to pick up another language. This might seem fairly easy, but do not underestimate how important this language might be when it comes to day to day life, not to mention your work. Speak to almost anyone that has moved to a country that speaks a different language and they will say that the one thing they miss (alongside their family of course), is not speaking in their native language. 

Job Opportunities 

Do you have a plan? Have you been offered a job transfer from work? Can you work from anywhere in the world? If the answer to any of those three questions is yes, then moving to a new country might be a great opportunity. The recession might be over, but the world wide economy is still suffering. Most countries will always focus on employing their native workers first before employing foreigners. If you have a skill set that is not particularly sought after, you might want to think about developing some leads for jobs before you go. 


Maybe you are moving country because you are being offered a high paid salary in comparison to the average in that country. So, you’d assume that moving there is going to be cheap. This is not always the case. You’ll need to budget for a few weeks off work, so that’s time you are spending money and not earning. During this time, you’ll find that you travel a lot and pay for hotels by the night, rather than monthly rental. Assuming it takes you 1 month to find a place and get settled, this is probably going to cost 3 times the amount that the average month from there onwards will cost. Make sure you budget not only for the time taken to move, but also things like furniture and clothing that you were not able to bring with you. 


Different countries have different requirements relating to visas. Make sure you know the ins and outs of all the rules and regulations before you actually leave. This will save you a lot of stress and ensure that hassle free immigration is achieved.

Sometimes life will just throw you an opportunity you can’t just turn away. And when you get the grip of it, it devours you like you’re the only one best fitted for the demolition. Soon, you get burned and want to run away from it. But just like any universal transpositions you simply stick as the opportunity gives you venue to feed your stomach and pay for the bills piling up the desk. This is what life is all about I think. What’s important is that we know how to find the best exhaust of all these stresses and more so find the best inspiration to move forward. 

Personally, I find getting drowned with music invigorating. Music is an element of renewal for me. Though, I’m not really that type who would get on the mic and drum my head away, I’m just a regular buddy who rummage old records and chill out at the rooftop with my favourite paper back. 

Life is just so seriously mysterious and if taken more than that, it’d be repulsion I can’t even star in my own picture, so I'm batting the grim out and embrace it with my life’s chosen melody. 

Yeah, thoughts on a Good Friday, some people are just so secular, deal with it.
Drink some water

The first person to discover the fountain of youth is going to make a fortune. Unfortunately, the rest of humanity has to contend with anti-aging tricks to keep themselves from looking old before their time. Here are just four tips for less wrinkles. 

1. Drink More Water 

 It's cliche for a reason. Water keeps your skin healthy and hydrated, so not only will you reduce the appearance of fine lines, but you'll also prevent new ones from forming. 

 2. Wear Sunblock 

 Did you know that some brands of sunblock can actually make your skin worse? Be sure to do your research and find a product that will truly do its job. Look for something that blocks UVA and UVB rays. 


Tanning has exploded in popularity over the past 20 years. It can be said that tanning has never been more popular than it is today. People do not want to walk around looking pale and unhealthy. Thanks to the use of tanning beds and spray tanning, they do not need to. Nowadays, people can look good all year by tanning.

Here are some of the reasons you may want to consider using tanning salons in Springfield, MO

1. Tanning in the sun can be dangerous 

 You have most likely read the articles and seen the stories on TV regarding the danger of tanning outdoors. There can be no doubt that skin cancer is a very real health risk. While it can be treated if detected early, you obviously do not want to put yourself in a position where your risk of getting skin cancer is significant. Putting skin cancer aside for a moment, trying to get a tan outdoors also presents the risk of the person getting a serious sunburn. You most likely have experienced a sunburn at some point in your life and they are no fun at all. A tanning booth is able to regulate how much exposure your skin receives.

How cool is that to see women invading the male domain. It is so inspiring! 

Air Asia Philippines, the country’s low cost carrier has re-launched their Manila-Davao route. Their first flight Z2611 landed at F. Bangoy International Airport on March 27, 2015 and I’m one thrilled blogger I’ll be saving bucks on my next Manila trip with this resumption. 

Other than this excitement, there’s another thing I’m so amazed about. This Air Asia maiden flight was actually flown in by an all-women crew and I happen to meet the women pilot. How cool was that! When I was still doing my Master’s course work on gender studies, it was so difficult to find women invading the male domain this area as we always know men to be the pilot and women are all FAs, as a correspondent. And then years, like yearssss later, I saw this! 

But keeping jewelry organized can be difficult even when you have a jewelry box. Necklaces get tangled together and your earrings get lost and covered up by all your bracelets. But how can you organize your jewelry? 

Here are some ideas. 

1. Think vertically If you have some empty wall space, consider adding some hooks to your wall to hang up necklaces, bracelets and some of your earrings. If you do not want to attach hooks directly to your wall you could attach them to a scrap piece of wood or cork board which you can than attach to the wall. Not only will your jewelry be organized but it will also act as artwork. 

If you are looking at obtaining a more youthful look without going under the knife, then skin tightening may be for you. Through laser skin tightening, infrared light is used to make the collagen in the skin to tighten or contract. Additionally, damaged skin cells are being replaced with newer ones. As a result, you should see immediate changes, without having to go through a recovery period. 

What Is Laser Skin Tightening? 

There are many different systems used in skin tightening procedures. All of these do the same, however, which is heating up the bottom layers of the skin, where the collagen is. At the same time, it cools the outside of the skin, which helps any visible external injuries to vanish. It is very similar to the process used during laser hair removal, as both use intense throbbing beams of light to treat a specific area of the skin. This light goes through all the layers of the skin.

Behind The Rolling Chair, BTS Gift Giving Project

I know we’re still wrapping up this school year. But I know too it’s never too early to prepare for the next. For those who have, buying school things is never a problem, but for many of our ‘kababayans’ who are weighed down to make their ends meet, this situation is a real heartache. For impoverished parents, it breaks their hearts to see their kids feeling sad because they have no means to buy even the most basic of school supplies. 

But thank heavens for people who have big hearts who initiated projects to give school bags and school supplies to our less privileged children; somehow it’ll make these parents heartache a little less painful and these children a lot happier. 

BEHIND THE ROLLING CHAIR, spearheaded by a fellow blogger, Naprey Almario is a group of big-hearted volunteers who have found passion in using their God-given gift to share their time, their effort and resources to send gifts of love to the children in various depressed communities in the Philippines.
