When it Rains... it Pours!

It is fiesta at my sister Lita's place. My parents and some of my siblings were there to celebrate. I had a chance to call and talk to them. I even talked to Dad which is very seldom. Dad doesn't like talking to me in the phone because of all in the family he is the most emotional one. When he talks to me, he always ends up crying. Today, I had a chance to just chit chat with him, and it was great. I was also able to talk to my brother Frony whom I basically grew up with. He was my brother, father and friend while I was living in Manila....

Anyway, I just receive a news from them about our youngest brother Jojo, who is an Electrical Engineer by profession and works in an international cargo vessel for a while now. I think 5 months ago, he decided not to renew his contract with his agency because of some unfulfilled promise on the agency's side (promotion and salary increase). After few months of spending time at home, he decided to come back to Manila for some training to improve his skills and at the same time applied for another job in another agency. With his qualification and certifications it is not hard for him to be hired. He signed a contract few weeks ago for a higher salary (almost doubled with the former agency). Everything was great... the agency purchased everything he needs and he was set to work last week of this month.... The other day, he received a call from his former agency offering a job promotion and a higher salary (4x than what they paid him for the last 3 times that he worked with them).... wow can you imagine that! Anyway, Jojo is already committed to the new agency so he turned down that offer.

When it rains, it really pours.... I am happy for Jojo for he found a job that is in line with his profession and he enjoys doing. .... besides, I am so proud of him because he never forgets to help our parents.... Anyway, about the lucrative offer of his former agency, Jojo's new agency will compensate him with the same amount on his next contract....

To my brother whom I called Allen and Tiyo sometimes... I wish you a good journey... I hope that there will be a chance that you will dock in Florida so that we can meet you!
