Ang pangarap ko ay ang makapag-abroad. How many times have we heard this as someone’s ambition? The life of an “OFW” is not easy, they work to foreign country and sacrifice. They go and find a job there, so that they will be able to earn money to support the daily needs and give a better future to their family left here in the Philippines. For those OFW that are working days and nights abroad just to give their family a better future, here’s our Tagalog OFW Quotes for you.
1.Walang salitang “Pagod na ako” sa isang magulang na OFW, basta para sa kinabukasan ng anak lahat kinakaya gaano man kahirap.
In the life of a typical Filipino family, this situation is very common because parents would like to give better future to their loved ones especially for their children. Good opportunities in the Philippines are not abundant to achieve most of their dreams. Working abroad is one way of fulfilling their dreams.
2. Nag-abroad ka para guminhawa ang buhay ng iyong pamilya. Hindi para magkaroon ng ibang pamilya.
You left your family here in the Philippines to give them a better life, to provide their needs not to have another family abroad. You promised that you’ll gonna come back. And you should bear your promise with you. Remember all your plans before you’ve gone abroad? Never ever forget that. Don’t let temptation ruined the perfect family you’ve built.
3. ABROAD. Salitang masarap pakinggan, pero dyan mo din mararanasan ang paghihirap na di mo inaasahan.
Some of us thinks that going abroad will cause too much happiness on us. What we don’t know is, when we comes to the point that we’re there, that time we knows that there is no happier place than being with our family. We’ll miss the bond, the smiles and the care of our parents. And that scenario will gonna break us down. We couldn’t help but cry. Homesick is one of the hardest feeling every OFW go through.
4. Hindi mayaman ang OFW. Marami lang talagang nagmamayaman lang at inuuna ang yabang.
Some OFW are working really hard for their family, but some are just egocentric. They show other people what they can afford to buy. Puro yabang ang alam, imbis na tumulong at magpadala sa pamilya, mas inuuna pa ang magpasikat sa ibang tao. That’s why other people think na lahat ng nagtatrabaho abroad maraming pera at mayayaman.
5. Mabuti pa si salary, buwan-buwan umuuwi ng Pilipinas. Ang nagtatrabaho, taon bago makauwi.
This is the sad part of being an OFW. Taon ang bibilangin bago ulit makauwi ng Pinas. Daig pa ng sahod nila, buwan-buwan nakikita ang pamilya nila. But that’s life. If you don’t strive hard, wala kang maipapadala sa pamilya mo. You just have to overcome the sadness. Kasi kung papatalo ka sa lungkot, walang ibang magcocomfort sayo kundi sarili mo lang.
6. Hangga’t may pinay DH na nangingibang bayan na simbolo ng ating kahirapan, kawawang bayan ni Juan patuloy na mapag-iiwanan.
As the number of DH increases the more other countries will think that Philippines is really a poor country. Accept it or not, that’s the sad reality. Jobs here in Philippines are getting harder and harder to find. Yes, many companies are hiring nowadays but only few are given a chance to have a work. And many are forced to leave the country just to have a job.
7. “BUHAY ABROAD” Kung hindi ka marunong magtabi para sa iyong sarili, uuwi kang pulubi..
For the Overseas Filipino Worker, working abroad without saving extra income for the retirement years is one of the biggest mistakes that should be avoided. This is the reason why many Overseas Filipino Workers are coming back to the country for retirement but are not successful.
Having relatives in abroad is such an opportunity because not everyone can go there, work there and live there. Maybe because they don’t have enough money to support the needs and requirements to go abroad. Everyone wanted to work abroad although it is too far and a foreign country, because they know that they can only earn big money if they will work outside the Philippines. Mahirap maging isang OFW. Lahat ng sakripisyo gagawin mo para mabigyan lang ng magandang buhay ang pamilya mo. Kaya sila tinatawag na bayani dahil sa mga sakripisyong ginagawa nila. Kaya sa ibang mga tao na akala nila madali lang ang mangibang-bansa at iniisip nila na pinupulot lang ang pera sa abroad. Mag-isip isip kayo mabuti. Isipin nyo kung anong hirap ang dinanas ng mahal nyo sa buhay para lang kitain yung perang pinapadala sa inyo.
