#BuhayOFW: The Ups and Downs of being an OFW and everything you need to know.

6 Founder of Mynd Tech Management Services

Ms. Myrna Padilla, Founder of Mynd Tech Management Services.

Bakit nga ba marami sa ating Pilipino ang pinipiling lumisan ng bansa? Isa lang naman ang sagot d’yan – upang kumita ng perang sadyang mas malaki kumpara sa kinikita dito sa Pinas. Sino nga ba namang tatanggi sa oportunidad na ito kung dito nakasalalay ang magandang buhay at kinabukasan ng maiiwang pamilya?

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) – wala man ang bawat pangalan nila sa history books o superhero comic books, whether they save a thousand or a single person’s life, or help their fellow directly or indirectly, sila ang itinuturing na “Modern-Day Heroes”.  Isa na d’yan si Ms. Myrna Padilla.

Ms. Myrna Padilla’s family

Si Ms. Myrna ay panganay na anak ng isang mangingisda sa Bohol, habang ang nanay niya ay mula naman sa Mindanao. Sa murang edad na sampung taon, nagtrabaho na siya bilang kasambahay kasabay ng kanyang pag-aaral sa elementarya.

Sa kasamaang palad, hindi nakatapos ng High School si Ms. Myrna kaya’t nang taong 1988, nakipagsapalaran siyang mangibang bansa para mamasukan bilang Domestic Helper. For almost 20 years, siya ay nagpalipat-lipat sa Singapore, Taiwan, at Hong Kong. She also founded OFW-centered organizations, served the OFW community, and won dozens of awards and certificate of appreciation for her work with OFWs and her
accomplishments in business.

Awarded and recognize in Hong Kong by Philippine Association of Hong Kong
Most Valuable Pinoy in Technology (MVP). 2018

In the year 2006, nagdecide si Ms. Myrna na umuwi na sa Pinas for good to focus on Mynd Consulting, an IT-BPO business which she established using money she had saved from her long service pay. Interestingly, Myrna learned and mastered everything she has to know about the IT-BPO industry thru her own experiences and discoveries from being an OFW.

That being said, Myrna is definitely an epitome of a successful OFW, the one we should be inspired from. Kaya naman our BeamerKada could not have any better guest speaker for BeamAndGo’s Friday program other than Ms. Myrna Padilla, to tackle about the stages of Buhay OFW.

STAGE 1. Ang Paglisan

For first time OFWs, walang hirap ang hihigit sa pag-iwan sa pamilya at sa sariling bayan para mag-trabaho sa ibang bansa.

Topic Discussed 1When asked what urged Ms. Myrna to work abroad, ang numero unong sagot niya ay “para sa edukasyon ng mga anak.” Not being able to earn a college diploma, naging layunin niya na makamit ng mga anak ang diplomang hindi niya nakamtan.

In terms of the challenges our OFWs face when deciding to work abroad, Ms. Myrna enumerated three key factors:

  1. Homesickness – Fighting the anxiety of being away from your family.
  2. Problems with employer – Struggling how to continue working despite maltreatment.
  3. Communicating your plans to your family back home.

To know more of Ms. Myrna’s advice to first time OFWs, watch the first episode of Buhay OFW Special here:

 

STAGE 2. Hanggang Kailan?

Ang tanong na malamang lahat ng ating mga Kabayan ay naitanong na sa sarili –  hanggang kailan ba ako magiging OFW?

quote 1 (1).pngIn the second episode of BeamAndGo’s Buhay OFW Special, the life after leaving their home was discussed. Ms. Myrna also shared the worst and the best part of being an OFW: The fear, pain and anguish of being separated with her family, especially her children, and on the other hand, the learning, earning opportunity that you should take advantage of.

Ms. Myrna also wanted the OFWs to take note of the three (3) motivators when you are at your lowest point: 1. Hope for success, 2. Faith in God and in yourself, and 3. Love for yourself and your family.

To find out what Ms. Myrna has to say on how to guide your children as they grow even when you’re miles away, watch the second episode of Buhay OFW Special here:

 

 

 

STAGE 3. Uwian na, Kabayan!

All OFWs look forward to that day when they can finally come home for good – hindi dahil sa biglaang pagdedesisyon na umuwi ngunit kalaunan ay mangingibang bansang muli dahil hindi pa pala sapat ang naiipon.

Kaya naman Kabayan, kung nasa abroad ka pa at nagpa-plano ka nang umuwi ng Pinas, make sure to ask yourselves first:

  • What do I have to secure before deciding to come home?
  • What should I expect in terms of familial relationship once I come home?
  • How should I handle finances and savings I earned?

Lastly, when can you say that you’re completely ready to come home? Of course, hindi pare-pareho ang sagot ng bawat OFW dito bilang may kanya-kanyang consideration sila. But what does Ms. Myrna has to say about this? Alamin ang tips niya sa third episode of Buhay OFW Special. Panoorin dito:

 

 

We hope this Buhay OFW series became useful for you until you reach the point in your OFW life that you have to prepare for your homecoming. Hindi ka pa man nakakauwi, Kabayan, tandaang hindi natatapos ang pagsubok sa buhay sa pag-uwi lamang. It may be the happiest moment for OFWs’ lives, but know that you will be facing entirely new challenges back home – and you will be able to handle this smoothly.

Ano mang plano mo pag-uwi, always remember: Napakaraming aral at karanasan ang naituro sa iyo ng pagiging OFW. Gamitin mo ito patungo sa iyong tagumpay!

BONUS: Paano ko mase-secure ang pangangailangan ng pamilya kahit na nasa malayo ako?

OFW Advice: The only supermarket in Baguio that will provide all your family’s needs!

Isa sa pinakasikat na destinasyon ng mga turista sa Pilipinas ang Baguio City. Hindi talaga natin maikakaila na dinadayo ng maraming tao ang lugar na ito lalong-lalo na kapag tag-init dahil sa lamig at sariwang simoy ng hangin at higit sa lahat, dahil sa sariwang mga produkto.

And with the aim of helping, BeamAndGo is on the go na maghanap ng mapagkakatiwalaan na supermarket para sa pamilya ng mga kababayan natin abroad. Here we help them provide their family’s basic needs through our digital gift certificates that they can use to buy groceries, medicines, department stores and many more!

Alam niyo ba na sa dami ng mga supermarket na nagsusulputan ngayon sa buong Pilipinas, iilan na lang ang nakakapag bigay ng tapat at magandang serbisyo!

Bilang isang OFW, hindi ba ayaw nating masayang ang perang ating pinaghirapan? Pag dating naman sa supermarket, minsan hindi natin alam na napapamahal na ang pamilya natin at hindi swakto ang mga prudukto na napupunta sa kanila. Ang mas masaklap, minsan yung mga empleyado every month paiba iba.

BeamAndGo_PENCER_CAAA_C&TripleA_staff

The BeamAndGo and C & Triple A teams are all smiles! We’re more than ready to serve OFWs! Trust us to take care of your family’s needs!

Buti nalang may kilalang supermarket sa Baguio City na makakapagbigay ng lahat ng kanilang pangangailangan. Ito ay walang iba kundi ang C & Triple A Supermart! Kung sa pag-go-grocery shopping ang hanap ninyo for your loved ones, then this is the supermarket that fits your family’s everyday needs.

BeamAndGo_C & Triple A Staff (Back)

C & Triple A Supermart is serving our kababayans in Baguio for over 30 years now! Yung iba nga, galing mountain province pa nakatira at duon parin sila nag shoshopping kasi may puso ang supermarket na ito! Imagine kung gaano na kalaki ang na-i-ambag ng supermarket na ito sa buong komunidad. Kahit ang mga staff nila ay nagtatagal dahil sa ganda ng pakikitungo at serbisyo na binibigay sa mga taga Baguio. May mga 7 to 10 years na na nagtatrabaho dito pero walang bahid ng pagod at pagsasawa sa kanilang mga mata dahil masaya sila na nakakapagpasaya sila ng mga customers.

Why C & Triple A Supermarket is everyjuan’s choice?

The maiden branch of C & Triple A Supermart is located along Zandueta St. which is the main road leading to the Public Market and the Jeepney Terminals along Kayang Road. It has a wide array of fresh products in the heart of Baguio. Kung mga sariwang gulay, karne, isda, o kahit ano pang mga pang araw-araw na pangangailangan ng iyong pamilya ang gusto mong ibigay sa kanila, aba’y sa C & Triple A Supermart na sila papuntahin. Fresh from the farm ang mga bilihin kaya masisiguro mong masustansya ang mga ito.

BeamAndGo_C & Triple A Staff Fresh Section

Bukod sa groceries ay meron rin silang bakery sa loob mismo ng supermarket. Pwede nang bumili ang iyong pamilya ng masasarap na tinapay at iba pa. Don’t forget to tell them na subukan ang best-seller nilang ensaymada!

Kung convenience naman ang pag-uusapan ay hindi magpapahuli ang C & Triple A diyan. Napaka- accessible ng kanilang location dahil nasa tabi mismo ng Abanao Square kaya napakadali mapuntahan ng iyong pamilya. Minsan duon nagpaparking mga customer. Familiar sa’yo ang lugar na ito, diba? Kaya naman kahit may dalawang branches lang ang supermarket na ito ay masasabing dinadayo talaga ng mga tao dahil sa mga produkto nila. Isama mo pa ang napaka-friendly nilang supermarket staff na siguradong makakapagbigay ng maganda at masayang serbisyo sa inyong pamilya sa Baguio.

BeamAndGo_C & Triple A Staff Laughing

Talaga naman smile na smile sila kaya happy ang mga customers! Ganyan ang BeamAndGo at C & Triple A Supermart! Customers will never forget how you made them feel!

Isa sa mga nakapanayam namin sa aming pagpunta sa Baguio ay si Ms. Annabel na halos pitong taon nang nagtatrabaho sa C & Triple A Supermart bilang Customer Service Staff. Ayun sa kanya, isa sa kanilang prayoridad ay mabigyan ng maganda at masayang serbisyo ang mga taong pumapasok sa C & Triple A Supermart!

beamandgo_beth_of_c___triple_a

Para kay Ms. Annabel, may forever sa C & Triple A! Everyday, masaya siyang nagtatrabaho para mapasaya ang mga taga Baguio! Kabisado niya ang mga pangalan ng mga customers! First name basis! Punta kayo duon at hanapin niyo siya

Sinisigurado nila na lalabas ang mga ito na may ngiti sa kanilang mga labi. Ika niya, tinuturing nila ang kanilang customers bilang King and Queen dahil sila ang nagbibigay buhay sa Supermarket na ito. Sa ganda ng trato at serbisyo ay halos kabisado na nga nila ang pangalan ng mga customers dahil sa kanilang pabalik-balik na pag-go-grocery shopping sa C & Triple A Supermart.

Sadyang kung iisipin mo ay parte na ng kasaysayan at progreso ng Baguio ang C & Triple A Supermart kaya naman napakagandang mamili dito.

Siguraduhin na bago magtungo sa supermarket ay nakahanda na ang listahan ng mga grocery items na kukunin sa supermarket upang produktong dekalidad ang sa iyo ay mapunta. Remember to focus on the things that your family needs (ex: soap at tooth paste) as opposed to wants (ex: skin whitening at perfume). Kita mo ang difference! Don’t waste your money on expensive potato chips if you can choose healthy fruits. Sa Baguio pa naman, sariwang sariwa ang choices!

OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Dito ka na sa Supermarket na Pinakamura sa Bayan!

Likas sa ating mga Pinoy ang pagiging family-oriented. Laging nauuna ang pamilya bago ang ibang bagay dahil para sa atin, family is everything. Kaya naman sa tuwing may nagtatanong kung bakit tinitiis ng ating mga kababayan ang malayo sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay at makipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa ay ito lang ang kanilang sagot: “Kailangan eh, para sa pamilya.”

Talaga nga namang ‘so close yet so far’ ang eksena sa buhay ng ating mga kababayang OFWs.  Ngunit kahit nasa ibang bansa man sila, they always make sure na ramdam ng kanilang mga pamilya sa Pinas ang init ng kanilang pagmamahal by giving them nothing but the best. And just like them, ito din naman ang hangarin ng BeamAndGo to help them provide their family’s everyday needs through our digital gift certificates na magagamit nila upang makabili ng groceries, medicines, health and wellness kit, at marami pang iba!

We ensure that the control of your pera-padala is in your hands now!  Kaakibat ng aming hangarin ay malugod naming ipinakikila ang merchant partner namin na “Pinakamura Sa Bayan”, ang San Roque Supermarket.  Tignan niyo lang ang dami ng tao sa supermarket nila! Marami namang supermarket pero tila itong San Roque Supermarket ay dinudumog sa dami ng tao!

BeamAndGo_SRS_Busy Counter

Why San Roque Supermarket is your one-stop shop?

Ang pagiging kumpleto ang isa mga bagay na ipinagmamalaki ng San Roque Supermarket. They offer a wide variety of products na talaga namang hindi ka magdadalawang isip na bilhin dahil sa fresh na fresh ang mga karne at isda na swak lutuin sa pang-araw-araw na hapag-kainan ng pamilya. Hindi lang ‘yan! Talaga namang nostalgic ang mag shopping dito dahil kahit mga produktong uso noong ikaw ay bata pa ay available pa rin!

SRS_MEATS_BeamAndGo

Bukod sa groceries, available rin sa San Roque Supermarket ang mga school supplies para sa ‘yong mga chikiting. Alam niyo naman, marami sa ating mga OFW ang nagpapaaral ng mga anak natin! Yun naman talaga ang dahilan natin kaya tayo nag lakas luob magtrabaho sa ibayong dagat.

SRS_SCHOOLSUPPLIES_BeamAndGo

Kahit maraming sikat at malalaking supermarket dito sa Luzon ay wala pa ‘ring makakatalo sa San Roque Supermarket para sa mga OFWs dahil mababa ang presyo ng mga produkto dito. Sa slogan pa lang na “Pinakamura sa Bayan” ay talaga namang hindi mabigat sa bulsa.  Dito sa BeamAndGo, naniniwala kami na wala sa ganda ang basehan sa pagpili ng pupuntahang supermarket. Kung stress-free ang hanap mo, dito ka na sa SRS!

OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Why Bataeños love this supermarket and department store?

Most of the people who don’t know the sacrifices and struggles of an OFW think that working abroad is just a piece of cake. But the truth is, life overseas is not as glamorous as it seems.

The OFW phenomenon has triggered the instant exodus of both skilled and service workers. They are being dispatched to different part of the globe. While OFWs are branded as modern-day heroes because of the much needed dollar remittances that pump the economy, the lush residences, and other earthly amenities from expensive gadgets to alcohol cannot pay off the negative impact of an absentee parent/s to the children left behind. It has influenced these children socially and emotionally.  Kaya dapat parents need to maintain their communication with their children.

Four years ago, BeamAndGo was born with a desire to help OFWs ensure their remittances are spent on basic needs – supermarkets, department stores, and pharmacies. If you use BeamAndGo, you are one step closer to kissing goodbye to all those horrific stories of broken OFW families.

Kaya naman may 24 supermarkets and department stores with more than 350 branches nationwide na ang BeamAndGo at ngayon, hangad namin na kayo ay magabayan sa pag-ba-budget ng inyong padala together with our trusted partner, Vercons and Vergara’s SupermarketThrough our Digital Gift Certificates, your worries will be wiped out dahil sa assurance namin na sa tamang gastusin ito mapupunta.

Ano nga ba ang sikreto ng VERCONS AND VERGARA’S?

Vercons and Vergaras are considered as the “top of mind” shopping malls and supermarket stores in Bataan and Zambales. This merchant was managed by Mr. and Mrs. Vergara since 1987 and proved that the people near their 8 branches will be served well. They are committed to offer their customers “Every Day Low Price” merchandise.

BeamAndGo_Vercons_supermarket

Food is one of the most important needs of our family. Hindi mawawala sa atin na hindi ito paglalaanan. Kung pipili ka ng supermarket for your family in Bataan and Zambales, huwag na magdalawang isip pumunta sa Vercons o Vergaras Supermarket dahil every day, mababa ang presyo dito! No more headaches din dahil sobrang approachable lahat ng staff nila. They have a wide array of goods like vegetables, fruits, baon packs, etc., na sulit ihanda sa hapag-kainan ng inyong pamilya, lalong lalo na ngayong paparating na Pasko!

Kung ang hanap niyo naman ay mga kagamitan na worth it para sa inyong bahay, marami kang pagpipilian sa Department Store. Mapa-damit, appliances, sapatos, school supplies o Christmas decorations ay available rin dito. Reasonable ang price at long-term pa dahil sa quality ng mga ‘to. Bukod sa everyday low prices, everyday new items din.

OFW SHOPPING ADVICE: Why Bataeños love this supermarket and department store?

Most of the people who don’t know the sacrifices and struggles of an OFW think that working abroad is just a piece of cake. But the truth is, life overseas is not as glamorous as it seems.

The OFW phenomenon has triggered the instant exodus of both skilled and service workers. They are being dispatched to different part of the globe. While OFWs are branded as modern-day heroes because of the much needed dollar remittances that pump the economy, the lush residences, and other earthly amenities from expensive gadgets to alcohol cannot pay off the negative impact of an absentee parent/s to the children left behind. It has influenced these children socially and emotionally.  Kaya dapat parents need to maintain their communication with their children.

Three years ago, BeamAndGo was born with a desire to help OFWs ensure their remittances are spent on basic needs – supermarkets, department stores, and pharmacies. If you use BeamAndGo, you are one step closer to kissing goodbye to all those horrific stories of broken OFW families.

Kaya naman may 15 supermarkets and department stores na ang BeamAndGo at ngayon, hangad namin na kayo ay magabayan sa pag-ba-budget ng inyong padala together with our new merchant partner, Vercons and Vergara’s Supermarket  Through our Digital Gift Certificates, your worries will be wiped out dahil sa assurance namin na sa tamang gastusin ito mapupunta.
