What they don’t tell you when you leave the Philippines
We are told about the wonderful things that happen when we make it out of our own country, but never once told how much it will hurt to lose our home.
They don’t tell you when you leave the homeland what you’ll actually miss. You’re told what you’ll supposedly gain – a better life, more freedom, and the ability to buy nice things. Wide open spaces, the reliability of service, the openness of city streets.
Cleaner bathrooms, the abundance of toilet paper, and reliable flushing. Unlimited ketchup and mustard on your burgers, plus all the fixings. Warehouse club-sized groceries and glutton-portioned meals. A good job, a nice house, and a car in the quiet suburbs.
