2008 in Review

A lot of things happened to me this year. Here’s a look back of the year that was.

Professional Growth

Year 2008 gave me opportunities to expand my horizon careerwise. During the first months of the year, I worked as a Clinical Instructor and Lecturer for a nursing school in Bulacan. I was assigned in different hospitals, handling senior nursing students. I also got a brief stint to work as a Nursing Board Exam Review Lecturer, where I got to travel to some provinces in the country, for free!

In June, I started working as a staff nurse for one of the most prestigious hospitals in the Gulf region. The department I am involved in is a very busy surgical unit, where I learn a lot of new knowledge and skills.

Official Residences

My wife and I lived in three different places during the early part of the year. We stayed in our house in Antipolo most of the time. But we needed to move to a place near her work during her pregnancy, so we rented a small unit in Ortigas Center, where we experienced the joys of condo living. We also stayed in my parents house in Bulacan for a while.

My last and present official residence is my flat here in the UAE.


Our married life was blessed with an angel, Inigo, in July. Our marriage was redefined. Our life goals and aspirations was reset.

Friends, friends, friends

As I continue to move around, I gained more and more friends. These include my co-clinical instructors, co-board exam review lecturers, my nursing students, new neighbors, new colleagues, new barkada here in the UAE, new blog readers.


Well, what else can I ask for? It was a very blessed year for me. I can say that my life took a 360-degree turn this year. There were lots of major changes and they were all for the better.

I thank God for 2008 and may He continue to shower my life and my family with all the best things in life.
