This is something I would buy if I don't have a smartphone but since I do it won't make sense to buy a tablet with a much lower specs. If you plan on buying those cheap ass no-name china brands, I'd say just buy this tablet. The 1 year warranty will give you some peace of mind and the facility of customer & technical support.

I like the idea of putting curtains to separate the bed area from the mini-living room area. Every now and then I'll put up some pictures of some design inspirations for some sort of "reminder to self"post.

Here I am working as an OFW and from my early experience, I have nothing but the utmost respect to all my countrymen who worked or still working abroad. OFW's are a "different breed of animals" and to get a deeper understanding of this you need to go through the process yourself. I liken an OFW's life to a soldier that has been sent to war. Like a soldier, you get sent to the "enemy's" terrritory. You only hoped that your life experiences have prepared or trained you to face all the obstacles along the way.
You fight the "war" for 1 or 2 years depending your employment contract. Then you get to go home but at the back of your mind nothing will ever be the same. You're not the same person who left the country for the first time. You came back hardened by the tough experiences you went through abroad. Along the way, you meet people who will try to break your will and people who's will have already broken. You keep yourself sane and balance by thinking about the people you left behind. I see myself as a ranking officer of the platoon, who needs to be strong-minded to lead the other soldiers to war and keeep them safe so they can come back to their families.
Like a soldier, you fight for the "cause" -- to liberate your family from proverty or secure them a brighter future.
We often hear that the OFWs are our modern day heroes. People don't know how much of an understatement this is and why I think like soldiers who fought the war, they are not given enough credit due to them. While the Philippines' economy enjoy the fruits of our labor, we OFWs continue to fight everyday to provide food on the table and roof to shelter our families. Maybe it's about time the government do something more for us.
