An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) shared her experience abroad and how lucky she is to have an employer who is kind-hearted and caring.
Although at first, the OFW admitted that they didn’t click easily with her “madam”. But sooner, she was able to adjust and captured the heart of her employer. Then their good relationship started.
The OFW supposedly ended her contract but her employer extended it. Another good thing about it was that her employer increased her salary because the exchange rate declined during the pandemic.
She was very proud of her madam and sees her as her second mother.
“Sabi ni madam di ka na naman nag iingay, palagi kang nakatulala sa balita, sama ka sakin hanap tayo ng isda. Dahil wala gaanong fresh, nag-ikot na lang kami sa grocery. Iyong tipong lakad dampot na wala sa ayos hanggang nag-counter di ako nag iintindi,” says the OFW.
When they arrived at her employer’s house, it was then that she noticed that most of the items were for her.
“Sa bahay ko na napansin na karamihan ng laman ng basket para sakin; dahil di naman nmin grocery day talaga ngayon, sa Sunday pa,” she added.
According to the OFW, her employer will just say, “I want you always happy”, every time she gives something to her and kisses her on the cheeks.
“Ganito kami palagi basta di gaano busy sa business niya. Para akong nakakuha ng pangalawang ina. Thanks be to God Share lang. Bigat kasi pakiramdam ko. Di ko alam sa awa ba sa mga kababayan natin o lungkot. Tahimik na dasal na lang ang nagagawa ko,” said the OFW identified only as Sam.
