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. 😀
