I have been a mind traveler to the Philippines for a very long time. I have been eccentric to the extent of keeping the map of Philippines in my wallet. I have been trying for many years to get a job of a teacher of English in an International School there, but the wheel of fortune remained without moving. Now lady luck has shined for me and I have been asked by an International school to attend the interview and face the test. I have never budgeted my expenses in my life. But this time, I sat down and budgeted all my expenses and the amount came to Rupees 157000 which is approximately 2415 $, not an exorbitant sum and I hope the magic wand of the Fairy God Mother will hand me the money as a gift.
