It’s my birthday today. The day is about to end actually. But the celebration of life continues.
When I woke up this morning, tons of birthday greetings filled my email inbox and Facebook timeline. I feel so blessed for having so many friends and loved ones. For me, they are the true wealth in one’s life.
What caught my attention and touched my heart was an email from one of my blog followers, an OFW based in South Korea. I remember him getting inspired and commented on my post about an OFW based in Saudi Arabia who never gave up completing his requirements just to start his investing journey.
I’m so happy that this time around he and his family will be the ones to inspire more OFW’s with his decision to improve his financial life and be focused on their goals. This letter is definitely one of the best birthday gifts I received today.
I will not be editing his letter and will keep it as it is in Tagalog so that you will feel more his excitement and happiness for being able to take that first step with his wife and child in achieving their dream of financial independence.
Anyeong haseyo Sir Burn,
Una binabati kita ng masayang kaarawan, more blessings to come and good health. Pasensya wala ako regalo hehehe. Speaking of gift ikaw yata ang may regalo sa akin, kasi after five months na nagmamasid at nagbabasa sa feed e mail mo especially about sa stock market, sabi nga ni sir Fitz,’Due Dilegence’ ba yon hehehe.
Simula ng mapadpad ako sa blog mo at blog ni sir Fitz parang biglang nag iba ang pananaw ko tungkol sa financial subjects, lahat na yata ng mga article mo nabasa ko na. Matagal ko ng gustong mag open ng account ko sa COL Financial kaya lng nahihirapan akong makakuha ng mga requirements dito sa SoKor, especially sa billing statement o bank statement, minsan sa isang article mo may nag comments na pwede pala ang work contract.
Last May 28 nagpasa ako ng application ko sa COL Financial, sobrang exited hindi ko tuloy naisama ung mga requirements ko yung valid ID at yung work contract ko, LOL, ginawa ko gumawa ako uilt application at nagpasa ulit sa COL Financial. Ngayon sinigurado ko na talaga na kumpleto hehehe. And then after one week eto na may email sa akin ang COL Financial, sabi ko eto na unnn. Sabi saken ng COL:

Sa sobrang tuwa ko napa-yehhhhhey tuloy ako na wala sa oras, eheheh. Last friday sabi ko sa asawa ko approved na ung application ko sa COL Financial, binigay ko ung account ko sa COL at hinulugan niya ng 25k. Sana next week ma-credit na yun para makabili na ako ng aking first stocks heheheh.
Congrats sa akin heheh, and of course MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT sa iyo sir Burn. Kung di pa ako napadpad sa blog mo at ni sir Fitz baka hangang ngayon di pa rin nagbabago ang pananaw ko sa financial matters.
Next week umpisa na panibagong paglalakbay sa mundo ng stock market heheheh,eto pa sir ha parang timing na naman ung huli mong article na Should you invest in SIN stocks, sa tingin ko tama ka pa sa alright hehehe, kaya ang bibilhin kong stocks ay ung nakakatulong talaga sa karamihan.
Eto pa ang nakakatuwa, mas nauna pa naka open ng account sa COL ang mag-ina ko heheheh: 15k a month sa asawa ko at 5k naman sa ITF ng anak ko kahit 7 years old lang siya,nakakatuwa, at gagawin namin to maybe ten years hehehehe. 2 months na sila samantalang ako mag uumpisa pa lang.
Pasensya na sir kung bakit ako sa iyo nagkwekwento heheheh. Kasi alam ko na ma appreciate mo ang kasiyahan na nadarama ko ngayon, ang sarap ng pakiramdam na kaming pamilya ay sama samang nag iinvest hehheh.
Happy birthday ulit sir Burn, and Thank you sa Gift.
Congratulations for answering the call of your heart and your determination to secure your family’s future. I really appreciate you sharing a piece of your happiness in this blessing of yours.
I want you to know that I am very happy and that you almost brought me to tears on my birthday. You are so bad. Just kidding.
Seriously, I wish you and your family all the best. The family that prays and INVESTS together, stays together. Forever.
