Reading Mom's a Stewardess feels like reading the woman version of Bo Sanchez.
I travelled to Bohol to do a research on what an Ultimate Tour of Bohol would be. I only planned to spend two (2) days to explore the Chocolate Hills tourist route and Panglao Island. Unfortunately due to airplane flight constraints, I had to extend my stay for another day. I knew that I don't have anything else to do on the third day except wait for the boarding time for my flight back to Manila.
I don't know why I settled for this kind of predicament but I felt that I had to do it. I realized later on that it is God's way of pausing my busy life. In that moment of peaceful existence waiting for my 5pm flight back to Manila, I finished reading Angel Viloria's book : My Mom's a Stewardess.
How I wish that I could write a book called "My Dad is a Steward". I'm still in my "personal searching" stage. In a way, I find myself following Angel's life path...
I decided to quit my CIO job for one of the best multinational company in the Philippines after close to 13 years of loyal employment. It was my first job so it was difficult leave. I felt like a traitor leaving all my stressed friends behind in the front line of the battle for improving consumer's lives.
Angel left her professional career in the Philippine (audit) Rating Services Corporation for 14 years. Like her, I found peace in the company of my family, friends, and OAP friends after resigning. I became more thankful and in constant search for a meaning in life.
