My personal Message -
Magandang umaga, tanghali o gabi to all Filipinos around the globe wherever you are or what time frame you are in. I have been a Filipino overseas worker for almost 10 years now and I never ever encountered a guide for the first time overseas Filipino worker.
I guess it is time for me to share my turbulent experience in my preparation for my first ever contract to work abroad. Normally, Filipinos are adaptable to any climate, location or conditions. We are found everywhere. I have friends in Papua New Guinea, Nigeria, Dubai, Bahrain, US, etc. comfortably enjoying as an ofw. But there are sad experiences and stories to share. For the existing ofw,consider this as a sharing site for all of us around the globe.
I want you to share your ideas as I share my own ideas on how to prepare or help prepare our fellow Filipinos in their quest for a decent life for him and his family through my BLOG. The blog will be a Guide to become an OFW. You can give your feedback or ask any questions. You can share your adopted country through our FORUM section. Existing ofw's, please share with me. Let's Pay it Forward!The OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers) Facts-

Opo, may Chapter para sa mga masasamang Pinoy OFW. Huwag mo isipin na pag nasa abroad, mga OFW are hugging and kissing to the tune of “Where is the Love” of the Black Eyed Peas. Bad Pinoys are worldwide din. It’s a social thing na where there is good there is always bad. It’s like Love & Hate which will always collide. But it is a good thing if we can avoid these bad pinoys.
One thinks na pag abroad ka na, you all have common dreams. Hindi. Some people will really make a way to take advantage of you or lalamang sa iyo. If you are are a first time OFW, you will have a first hand experience sa mga masasamang OFW. Usually, the first person to accomodate you with extra love and affection is the first person to stab you at the back. Not literally ha. Yun yung tao na pahug-hug pa, pakamusta-kamusta at pashare-share pa ng whatever he has.

The Philippines - Why is it that ten percent of the population live outside of the Philippines? Most would respond by saying, 'to seek a better life'. Tens of millions more would like to work overseas - anywhere but home.
Give everyone a visa and Manila would be a ghost town. (WMD. Weapons of Mass Disillusionment.)
The brightest Filipino minds have concluded that it's better to be a foreign citizen than to be a local one. Overqualified doctors would rather work as nurses in Canada. Lawyers would rather work as paralegals in the United States. University professors would prefer a job as an English tutor in South Korea. Some pinays would rather dance in bikini bars in Japan.
