Syempre naiyak ako dito! Being a daughter of an OFW myself, I can feel the pain of being far away from a loved one. This video from Coca-Cola’s Where Will Happiness Strike Next: The OFW Project is so close to my heart.

My mom started to work on and off abroad since I was 6 years old. We would only spend 2 weeks together during the Christmas break and then another year of waiting. I got used to it after a while, and I thank the local airlines like Cebu Pacific Air for the low airfares because I can visit my mom anytime I want. She’s living in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam now and I visited her last February.

Can’t wait to see her on my wedding! I can’t promise that there would be no tears. 😀

About Jenn

I'm Jenn, a 28-year old web developer/newlywed living in Taguig City, Philippines. At the start of 2009, I weighed in at 187lbs. In May 2011, my boyfriend of almost 9 years proposed to me and we walked down the aisle in January of this year. With all the recent changes in my life, I would like to document my journey to become my fittest and healthiest self by the time I am 30.
