Money mistakes of OFWs

(OFW-Overseas Filipino Worker) The painful truth is that many OFWs remain poor despite working abroad for so many years.  Ask typical long-time OFWs about their savings, and if they answer you honestly—they don’t have much, or none at all. So, what went wrong? Here are the top five money mistakes of OFWs. Instant upgrading of…

Leaving with a grateful heart

“You’ll know when it’s time to leave.” Last August 2021, my career as an English lecturer at a state university in Oman officially ended. It also closed a chapter of my life as an OFW for 11 years. Three years in Libya and eight years in Oman. GRATEFUL. That’s the word that best describes how…

Salalah Photo Dump!

I have been working and living in Salalah, Oman for eight years. Actually, the province is officially called Dhofar and Salalah is the capital.

You were expecting that the pandemic would be over by now, and that your life would be back to pre-pandemic normal. Now,…

The hidden blessings of childlessness

It causes so much emotional pain—-not only because your personal desire has not been granted, but also because of the insensitivity of society. Childless couples are often the target of sarcastic jokes…

Till debt do us part

Are you tempted to borrow money to have a special pre-nuptial shoot or a grand wedding reception? Don’t do it! You are putting your relationship at risk. A scroll on your Facebook and Instagram feed will make you feel envious of that couple who had a photoshoot in a posh resort. You gasp in awe…

Middle Age woes

Forty. That’s generally accepted as the start of middle age. And it ends at 60. This is a difficult and challenging period. Here are the reasons. You are starting to have health problems.
