Taghirap

Hay..Looks like kinakalabog na tayo ng world financial crisis..Last year kasi medyo di pa ramdam pero ngayon-kaliwa't kanan ang tanggalan sa trabaho..Sad..=(

I received an SMS from a friend yesterday asking for help-baka daw mahanapan ko sila ng work. Apparently,both of them have been shelved from work..Tsk-tsk..Tough times. As much as I want to help them, I have no fitted opening for them ( I work as a recruitment specialist for an IT consultancy so mostly IT jobs ang meron kami)..

Amazingly, andami din naming nare-receive na applications for work.Dati,pahirapan ang maghanap ng mga programmers,pero ngayon sandamakmak ang mga aplikante. Never kami nauubusan ng ila-line up. This is only indicative na marami na talaga ang walang trabaho.. Ang mga dating OA magbigay ng asking rate nila,nagbaba na rin ng presyo..Mabuti na yun kesa totally wala..Taghirap talaga..

Sabi rin ng mga Marketing Consultants namin,marami daw kaming consultants na tumatawag lately to have cash advance..Ang mga sumasahod ng 40k above ngayon-kinakapos na din.. So,paano na kaya yung alang-ala na talaga?Mas lalong mahirap..Saklap!

What's left in my wallet as of today is P520..Ang hirap, next week pa ang sahod namin.. My alloted allowance usually suffice me naman until the next payday pero ngayon,di ko alam kung paano ko pagkakasyahin ang 520! I have to pay DVR pa for the dinner we had last time.. Spell taghirap di ba?

I was thinking of buying HAVS for our Bohol-Cebu trip next week,pero naisip ko, I can buy 2-3 shirts na sa price ng tsinelas na yan.. So dahil taghirap ngayon,dedma na muna ang mamahaling tsinelas na yan!

I hope I can have a 'raket' these trying times.. Sa hirap ng buhay,kailangang kumayod ng todo..

Every night, I thank God for the many blessings He continue to shower me and my family. Taghirap nga ngayon pero at least, I still have my work..Kaya super thank you BRO!
