The Foreign Wish List

Real Ways To Earn In Forex Trading Online Stock Trading Tutorial Pdf London Stock Exchange Program Panther For Forex Binary Option Forex Trading Program

The ones who can save are the people who have high paying jobs, are privileged to be given an apartment, free of charge from utilities by their employers. Who are consistently paying Italian taxes, up until they are 65 years old or more, so they can earn pension. Saving is very hard to do in Italy, and if this is the primary reason you are going here, then be ready for the challenge. It would depend on your situation. A lot of factors will also cascade because of your style of living. So if you think a person has a stack of money because he is working in Italy, think again. They can get a loan or set aside their liquidation or 13th month pay, but it still boils down to the situation of the person if one can save or not.

Building a home is actually easier than saving, why, because there are a lot of rent-to-own houses in the Philippines. A lot, that it actually adjusts to your needs. It forces you to put down and set aside for the amortization. After working for an abundant number of years in Italy, you are now able to cool down your heels in your very own home. Most Filipinos working here in Italy have mansion-like homes, and it is where a lot of their hard-earned money goes. No savings? At least you have a big house, which by the way, was inhabited by relatives while you are working your butt off in Italy. There is the question of maintenance, but that is another story.

The assurance of giving your child the best education abroad, can be true in other countries, such us the U.S., Canada, or Australia, not here in Naples. First, seldom do they speak English, nor do they incorporate it correctly on their curriculum. Next, most kids here are not disciplined enough to make a difference in society. That’s how Naples ranks rock bottom in terms of good vibes between its citizens, and how they treat non-Italian citizens in return. This definitely goes against the Filipino attitude of respect for elders, as well as within their fellow peers. Raising a child here, and making them go to a school with a bunch of non-respecting and liberal-toting- point-of-view-of-the-world Italian children, will really put your patience of disciplining to a test.  This is just the first phase, and I’m not talking yet on the stage of puberty, where teenagers can experiment to the maximum limit. Last but not the least making money to have enough capital to raise a business. Hello?!?!?

If you can’t save and all your earnings have gone to love ones or home amortization, then how in the world can you set aside for capital. That’s your 700 Euros in Italy, hard-earned, coupled with sweat, homesickness, and tears and it still not enough to complete your hopes and dreams. Might as well be a call center agent in the Philippines where the earnings can be a little bit close to 700 Euros (in some call center establishment). But without blue-collar work and the other factors that make living overseas a roller coaster ride, (wishful thinking).
