outward, inward journey 1

I will move into to the next chapter of my life in a couple of months time.As to where I will go next, I haven't really made up my mind yet. Like many years ago, I would probably just pack up and leave and let the wind carry me. Dumaguete was just a wishful thinking 8 years ago but in a twist of fate, I eventually found my way to the city by the sea. Years before Dumaguete, I was also in a crossroad. That was 15 years ago.

15 years ago, I was itching to finish college so I could get a job in Makati.  As a small town boy, the exotic appeal of commuting by train to work and having a cubicle in a steel and glass office building along Ayala Avenue got stuck inside my head semesters before I graduated.

It did happen. I landed a job in a foreign broadcast company and commuted to work from New Manila to the MRT Cubao Station and got off at the Buendia Station every day. Back in the day, the MRT ride during rush hour was decent. While the production studio was located in San Lorenzo Village, the office was in a skyscraper in the Central Business District. Not along Ayala Avenue though but very close, in Gil Puyat, just across the RCBC Tower.
The dream soon fizzled out when I came face-to-face with the reality that my salary could not sustain the hedonistic lifestyle of regular binging and occasional foam parties in a big city. At the time, Makati was a ghost town after 7pm. Tomas Morato and Libis was on its heyday while Malate basked off on its afterglow. 

It came to a point when the big city lifestyle became toxic so I packed my bag and threw caution to the wind.  Where to? Sagada. Baguio. Dumaguete. Or back to Cebu. I eventually got a one-way boat ticket to Cebu where life took a U-turn.
