LIVING ON BORROWED TIME

June 23, 2005

washing machine for sale

this coming august, four years na kami ni jet dito sa singapore. nakakalungkot nga kasi hindi na namin ito aabutin. aalis na kaming mag asawa in a few weeks time. nilipat kasi ako sa opisina namin sa southern california starting this july. good news, bad news… the good news is that mapupunta ako sa lugar na matagal ko nang gustong tirhan. i love southern california. i love the weather, i love what it offers. una ko pa lang ito nakita, humiling na ako na sana one day tumira kaming mag asawa rito. ngayon matutupad na ito. the bad news is, malalayo kami sa lugar na napamahal na sa amin. i love singapore. i love the food, i love the fact that it’s only 3 hours away from manila, i love the security and the cleanliness and most of all i love our dear friends whom we’ve had the opportunity of spending time with these past few years. marami pa akong ikukwento about our big move to the united states pero siguro sa ibang araw na lang.

first things first – binebenta na kasi namin ang mga gamit sa bahay at kung taga singapore kayo, look at the list of items for sale at baka mayroon kayong mga gustong bilhin. halimbawa, yang nasa picture ay brandt na front loading washing machine (SPIDERMAN not included) – 5 months pa lang yan sa amin. bili ko ay $600, ibebenta na lang namin ng kahit $400 para lang ma dispose. o sige na nga $300 na lang, wala nang tawad. bwakanginangyan, palugi na lahat maibenta lang. hekshuli, marami pa kaming items for sale. CLICK HERE to download the full list of items and then send me a note in the comment section with your email if you are interested. pag babae ang bumili, as usual, may libreng halik galing sa akin, labas pa ang dila.

    wow how exciting! bibilhin ko sana ang washing machine kaso di mo naman pala dadalhin dito hehe. nakakatuwa..


  2. oo naman – pang singapore residents lang siguro dahil as is where is ang bentahan. i don’t have the means to deliver the items and the buyer must collect the items from our flat in the east coast of singapore.

  3. trotskybee Says:

    Sayang Tito Jay, mahal ang pa-cargo from Sing. to NZ. Gusto ko kse yung bed and yung printer (nasira na nang tuluyan printer ko). Saka kung ipapacargo mo, di ko makukuha yung libreng kiss – kahit WALA nang dila. Baka ma-bamboo ako ni Tita Jet hehehe.

  4. The Ca t Says:

    bakit mo binebenta yong router mo? You can use that here in the US di ba ?

  5. mari Says:

    gosh huling huli na ko sa balita…i dunno if i would congratulate you or what kasi nga napamahal na sa inyo ni jet ang singapore. pero, new beginning ulit ito and it’s a realization of your dream…congrats fafajay!!! wow, ang layo nyo na. di ko na kayang pumunta dyan hehehe. i would miss you guys whenever i’m in sing. di bale pag bakasyon kayo ni jet dito sa pinas, kita kits pa din tayo.

  6. Linnor Says:

    Playstation2 meron kang pinagbibili? 🙂 Kaya lang baka mas mahal pa ipa-airfreight papunta Cebu no… Hmmm…

  7. Jet Says:

    The comfort I get from this mylab is…

    Nung umalis tayo ng Pinas, ganito din ang feeling natin… malungkot kasi mapapalayo sa mga bagay at tao na nakasanayan na at mahal sa atin.

    But after 4 years, here we are… finding things and people that have become familiar and that we’ve come to love.

    We do have to say goodbye again but knowing this gives me the hope that wherever we find ourselves, we will manage to surround ourselves with things and people that we will come to love.

    On another note…

    Ano’ng libreng kiss sabay labas ang dila? Gusto mo ng ikaw ang ibenta ko?

    hehehe…

    labyu!

  11. hi trotskybee, nabili na ang printer. pwede kong ipadala yung kama sa iyo piece by piece. parang ginawa doon sa “the piano” ni jane campion. diyan sa new zealand din ang setting ng pelikula.

  12. jop Says:

    wow, bagong adventure. good luck sa inyo!

  22. Pepe Says:

    goodluck na lang sayo…kami siguro for good na dito dahil sa mga bata…

  23. vangie Says:

    kahit mapapalapit kayo sa kin nalungkot naman ako. i can tell how you love singapore kasi. anyway, pag nagawi kayo sa norcal, let me know naman, i would love to meet both of you.

    you’ll love it in socal, kahit ako, gustong lumipat doon!

  24. Gigi Says:

    Saan kayo sa So. CA??? As you may or may not know, that’s where I live! Please let me know where you’ll be based (you can email me). If you and Jet need anything, I’ll try to help out in any way I can. Seryoso ‘to! Don’t be dyahe OK — I know if it weren’t for a little help from my friends (and even complete strangers) here, I wouldn’t have adjusted as fast and as completely as I did. So. CA will never be the same once you’re both here — and thank God for that! 🙂

  25. Haring David Says:

    hiya santa gigi!

    of course i know you’re from southern california. i’ve been reading your blog for a while now. thank you very very much. we might take you up on the offer for help one of these days. especially since this will be our first time to live in the US. i could imaging how hard it will be for the first few weeks. i have to get a driver’s license, SSS number, bank account, apartment and car ASAP and i don’t even know where to start. but i take comfort in the fact that there are people like you who are always willing to help. one of my friends from work has already offered her apartment. that’s where we’ll probably stay till we get our own place.

    don’t worry, i won’t be dyahe. we’ll be in touch especially now that we’re almost neighbors.

  26. ley Says:

    congratulations!!! sana maging kapitbahay ko kayo…. malapit na ang pasko, mangangaroling ako!!!.. hehehehe….hey, i know how you love SING, but im pretty sure you gonna love so cal too…. welcome to the “beaches and the bitches”… hehehe!!!! WELCOME to your new home!!!

  27. ley Says:

    And another thing, since i really want your new adventure to be my affair too, i wish to volunteer myself to create an agenda and sched for your MUST DO THINGS ON YOUR FIRST WEEK List… it will be really handy if you tell me at least the city where you are heading to… and dont think of it as a hassle, im anal and i love giving myself some trouble…. hahahha…. and dont worry about the fee, i only charge a smile!!!!

  28. sis Says:

    hope to see you and jet here in southern california soon!!!

  29. ley Says:

    opssy.. i just cant keep myself from going and going and going…. should i make an appoinment with you two now for my carolling?(hehehehe) what day and time will be most convinient to you? which do you prefer, tagalog or english carols?….. better believe it, its simply the american way!!!…. btw, how many mins do you prefer us to sing for you? and hey, should i give you call a day before to remind you? is parking gonna be a problem?….. hahahahaha…….. and more of these scenarios will be a reality in a few weeks…..JAY and JET, again, welcome to your new home!!!

  30. Isip BatJay Says:

    hehey ley.

    i do love so-cal a lot. it’s been in my list of top places to live in ever since the 1st time i was there. thanks for the offer. don’t worry, we’ll have a lot of time to go around southern california. so, what’s the MUST THINGS TO DO ON YOUR 1ST WEEK IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA?

  31. Jay The Vid Says:

    hi sis. thank you. yes, it is going to be very soon.

  32. auee Says:

    steytside na pala kayo ni Jet… You’ll have new experiences for another chapter in your blog… Good lick, este, good luck!

    Sana pede pa-ship dito sa London XBox mo ang cheap hehehe

  33. Y Says:

    That’s so sad to hear that you’ll be leaving Singapore, but – oh well – some stones are really meant to roll. Good luck to you and Jet.

    You’re items are cool, but we have also gathered quite a load of crap in our stay here in Singapore. Our Xbox is even gathering some dust; my husband’s bike hasn’t been touched in like two years. I wonder who would buy your bed, though; just the thought made me laugh out loud, just think of all the naughty things you’ve done there.

    I guess this site won’t be “mga kwento ng isang tambay na engineer sa Singapore” anymore. I’m pretty sure you’ll miss the food, so I’ll eat the chili crabs for you, while my husband will devour all the fish head curry he could consume. Selamat Tinggal! Chai Chien! (sorry no Tamil speaking person around here)

  34. con Says:

    naku batjay, wala ako napili. =p goodluck na rin sa paninda nyo. sana makabenta kayo ng marami.


  35. di bale na lang con. maraming salamat sa pag tingin. sana nga maubos na ang paninda ko.

  36. Lolo Libog Says:

    hello ms Y.

    oo nga, walang moss growing fat on this rolling stone. it has been a great almost four years for jet and i. we’ve enjoyed it so much that it is painful to leave. we love our friends here and singapore in general has been good to us. i will miss the food and the cleanliness and the safety.

    you’re correct, next august wala nang “kwentong tambay ng isang tambay na engineer sa singapore” – perhaps “kwentong orins kawnty”

  37. rd Says:

    congrats and good luck….bili ka na ng surf board dude

  38. rose Says:

    hay! yun nga ang mahirap sa lilipat ano? di lang yung kapitbahay at kaibigan mo ang ma mi miss mo,. nakakalungkot din na ibebenta mo yung mga gamit mo na na pamahal na sayo! hay!

    daan lang! 🙂


  39. hi rose. maraming salamat sa pagdaaan. oo sinabi mo – malungkot talaga pag kailangan mong iwanan ang lugar na napamahal na sa iyo. mahirap.


  40. hi RD. body board muna. hirap mag surf eh.


  41. good lick then sa iyo auee, ang pangalan na puro vowel.

    mwehehe. pwede kong ipa ship ang xbox sa london kaya lang hindi ka na makakabili ng bala kasi pang asian region ang Xbox ko. well, unless ipa tweak mo ang unit.

  42. carol Says:

    huwattt??? hahalis hana sah shinghaphor?? hehehe

    grabe, ngayon lng ulit ako napunta eh, aalis n kau ni ate jet sa sing?? Yu es of ey nman ang titirhan nyo wow, ganda ha..maasaya ito!! new adbenturs sa inyong dalawa sa bagong tirahan and lugar..

    kelangan nyo ng katulong?? shet pedeng pede ako jan hehehe

  43. Renee Says:

    I’m so happy with the way things are working out for you and Jet, Perskasin. I’m glad your company valued your services enough to find you a position here in California.

    Gad has been showering you with blessings indeed!

    Looking forward to being neighbors with you!

  44. DarkBlak Says:

    mag iiba na rin pala yung sub-title ng blog mo.


  45. yup – different subtitle. different everything. akshuli, hiling ko nga eh sana nga may time pa ako na makablog.

  46. DarkBlak Says:

    sayang naman kung hindi na kayo makakapag blog, ang dami pa namang suki ng blog nyo.

  47. Queen Paniki Says:

    hi perskasin pradamama.

    oo nga, maraming mga magandang nangyari this year – jet passed her exam and i got the offer. magiging malapit na kami sa inyo and can visit more often.

    excited na nga kami.


  48. sana nga may oras pa ako, DB. malalaman natin sa august.

  49. Super Supot Says:

    hi carol. oo malapit nang umalis at oo new adventures ulit. kailangan mag aral na akong mag inglis

  50. evi Says:

    What a blessing! Good luck to your move.

  51. ley Says:

    POGING batjay…..my thoughts of “THINGS TO DO ON THE FIRST WEEK LIST” simply means helping you and your gorgeous wife find the locations of SS Office (for your SS #s), DMV (for your license) and the closest public library (for a free internet access/books/etc.)…. aba, there’s no excuse for you not to update your blog, ayaw kong magdyeta sa katatawanan…hehehehehhehe!!!!

  52. Joel Says:

    Unkel Batjay type ko sana ung lampshade mo kaya lang hindi ba libre yung pa cargo dito sa saudi hehe. Anyways isa pang maituturing mo na “good news” ay magkakasama na kayo ni ate Jet por always and always diba. Good luck sa iyong paglipat sa tate, We know God will take good care of you & Jet kahit saang lugar kayo nandoon. Godspeed!
    P.S. We’ll be waiting for spriderman’s california adventure

  53. KIKO Says:

    batjay and jet goodluck!
    mamimiss nyo ang mga amoy langka dyan hehehe, pwede ka na libot dito sa boston, medyo malapit na.

  54. Ubuntu guy Says:

    Unkle Batjay,

    Request lang na sana ituloy nyo ang inyong blog kahit lumipat kayo sa US. Sa totoo lang naging fav pasttime na namin lahat na dumaan muna sa site nyo pag kmi’y stress out. Icebreaker ba. Mga colegues ko mula budapest, praque, slovenia, latvia ay avid fan nyo na (pinoy syempre).

    More power to you unkle and goodluck sa inyong magasawa

  55. Tiyo Pablo Says:

    dear ubuntu guy,

    maraming salamat sa pagsulat mo. hayaan mo, pipilitin ko pa ring magsulat. sana nga pwede pa rin. sana di masyadong maka apekto ang trabaho.

    nasa europa ka pala. isa sa mga pangarap ko ang makatungtong diyan isang araw kasama si jet. gusto ko ring mapunta sa buda at pest, sa prague at sa italia.

    ulit, maraming salamat at hanggang sa muli mong pagdalaw,

  56. rolly Says:

    It takes a lot of guts to leave one’s comfort zone, Jay. And you’re doing it. I salute you. kungsabagay, wala ka naman dapat ikatakot. You are a very talented, intelligent man. You’ll be successful whereever you go. Good luck pa rin, just the same.

  57. Uncle BatJay Says:

    oo nga tito rolly.

    outside of my comfort zone – kaya siguro ako apprehensive ever since naging sigurado na kami na lilipat sa states. i don’t know what’s in store for us when we move. i just take comfort in the fact that we’ve always done well kahit saan kami mapunta. ang dasal ko lang eh sana i won’t screw up. maraming salamat sa encouragement, kaya naman magaling kang kaibigan. you say the right words at the right time.

  58. techguy Says:

    pasensiya ka Jay ngayon lang nakadalaw sa blog, congrats sa new endeavor mo, coming to america, mararanasan mo na rin drinking hot coffee while snowing, bagay sa mountain part lang california me snow, pero dahil nasa cali na kayo everything will be in arm’s reach in north american continent…regards na lang kay Jet

  59. Victory Joe Says:

    hi techguy.

    thank you sa bati. oo nga lilipat na kami ni jet. bagong adventures na naman. hanggang ngayon di pa ako nakakita ng falling snow.

    ingat,


  60. hi kiko.

    oo nga. ang corporate office namin ay malapit sa area mo sa boston. sana isang araw ay madalaw diyan sa inyo.


  61. hi joel. welcome back! maraming salamat sa bati. sana nga mas gumanda pa, pag lipat namin. kung nandito ka lang sana eh di ibibigay ko na lang sa iyo ang lamp.


  62. hi ley.

    galing. sige, hingi akong tulong sa iyo if i have a hard time with my SSS, license and such. maraming salamat!


  63. evi! thank you.we’ll be doing it this july. take care, jay


  64. hi vangie.

    oo nga, jet and i really love singapore. but southern california calls so that’s where we will start to build a new home. we love it there – parati kaming bisita ng socal and i’ve always enjoyed my stay.

    i am sure we will visit northern california. all my relatives are in the bay area.


  65. gandang araw ka pepe. maraming salamat sa bati. good luck din sa inyo. actually parang mas gusto ko rito sa singapore kaya inggit ako sa iyo’t narito ka permanently.


  66. hi gail. oo bagong adverture. thank you sa good luck – sana nga puro good luck.


  67. ate glo!

    hehehe… ibibili ko na lang si raine ng sarili niyang spiderman. tapos maglalaro kaming dalawa. ngyehehe. maraming salamat sa best wishes mo.

    ingat at hanggang sa muli.


  68. hi jon.

    yung $300 na bike. madaling masira yon. if you will use it everyday, sa tingin ko mga less than a year, bibigay na ang mga parts nito – kadalasan yung rim, pedal at plato ang unang bibigay.

    kung gusto mo talagang mag invest sa bike – ie kung gagawin mong hobby ang biking. i would strongly suggest you get a bike that has good body, rims and wheels. yung mga above $1000 ang talagang pang long term. sulit naman dahil hindi ka masisiraan while biking and you will enjoy the extra speed. mas mabilis talaga ang high performance bike sa mga ordinary na mumurahin.

    ingat

  69. Facking Teyp Says:

    hi jop.

    oo tuloy na tuloy na ang paglipat namin sa ‘merika. at mapapalapit na ring matuloy ang ating pagkikita. sana makapunta ka sa west coast. sa amin naman, matagal ko nang balak dalhin si jet sa new york. gusto kong makapanood siya ng mga shows at mabisita ang mga museums.

    tamang tama ang annual comic convention sa san diego. it’s just an hour away or so from where we will be staying.


  70. ang galing ng sinabi mo mylab. actually that’s exactly what i wanted to say but i just couldn’t think of the right words. buti na lang nariyan ka – you always say the right words.

    maraming salamat. lab U!

  71. schatzli Says:

    hoy malandi saan sa south ka? kasi pag punta ko doon mabisita kita… liipat na si spiderman?

  72. tintin Says:

    good luck to your new journey to another country. yeah southern california is a good place to live in, you’ll love it 🙂 i’m from san diego.

  73. Haring David Says:

    hi tintin.

    thanks for the best wishes. i do love southern california and am looking forward to our big move there. i love san diego in particular and have many friends down there.

    take care,
    jay

  74. favel Says:

    batjay, nag-announce na pala kayo =) ang weird ng feeling ng aalis no? nakakalungkot. and syempre may kasamang takot din kahit papano. dati project ko sa blog na i-document yung singapore experience namin. kaso tinatamad ako. haha. wala ako energy these days kahit mag blog-hop, hay. sana sipagin, kasi sarap balikan yun balang araw.
    good luck sa inyo ni jet! =) looking forward to “kwentong tambay sa cali” 😀

  75. Sassy Says:

    Jay, good luck. Ang best news siguro eh magsakama pa rin kayo ni Jet dun. Walang physical separation. And Jet has so much in store for her too.

    I’ll miss your Bumbay stories but I’m sure may mapapag-trip-an kang iba sa southern CA. hehehe

  76. Isip Bata Says:

    thank you sa best wishes mo ate sassy. oo nga, moving to the states gives more opportunities for jet to work as a nurse. i hope we have a good time in california.

    baka hindi pa rin mahinto ang bumbay stories ko. marami akong magiging kaupisinang mga bumbay na transplanted din doon. karamihan ay mga developers. pero siguro iba na nga ang mapapagtripan ko.

  77. Jungian Lord Says:

    hi favel.

    oo nag announce na kami. kasi malapit na talaga ang pag alis. di na talaga mapipigilan. last day ko na ngayon sa office. tapos uwi na kami sa pilipinas ng sunday. balik dito ng end of the month then straight to LA.

    bukas ang party – punta kayo nina jennypeng ha.

  78. Jungian Lord Says:

    hi schatzli. saan sa southern california? after the house of mickey mouse and before the killer whale show.
