I am Rowan. I was a preschool teacher for almost 10 years. My job as a teacher had opened doors for me to experience living on my own especially when I first flew out of Manila on 1st of January 2005 to work in Bahrain. After 2 and a half years I came back home and worked as assistant teacher for the International School Manila in Taguig. And then after the school year, I tried and got accepted to teach again in Medan , Indonesia circa 2008-2009 . It was where I learned to enjoy learning to speak like the locals and loving the food culture there. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the job that much. So I went home again. Singapore followed next and as a Childcare teacher .. ( that’s the Marines of Early Childhood field) that was 2010. In 2011, I met a man from Cairo who after 3 years and thousands of miles ( I taught in Germany he got assigned in Dubai and Singapore (again)and then South Korea) got married on Dec 2014 by the only Korean priest in our place who can speak English.
We have been blessed by a beautiful girl on Sept 2015 and she was born in Korea ( she holds a Philippine Passport). And our journey in life had just gotten more exciting as we had gotten an approved visa to live permanently in Australia on 2015 of November. Just in time when the oil and gas industry had reached its low.. we are ready to move out of Korea and ready to set our next steps to one of the best countries to live in.
