#BuhayOFW: Here’s the BEST way to surprise your loved ones from miles away!

It has been the habit of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to surprise their families back home with food, whenever there is a special occasion such as birthdays, graduation, holidays, or sometimes, even just on a regular day. Bonding na kasi talaga ng pamilyang Pinoy ang pagkain.

Watch: Isang OFW, pina-iyak ang kanyang magulang sa kanyang sorpresa.

 

This is made possible now because of the internet – where OFWs can select the product they want to send to their families and pay for it as well, all done thru their mobile phones. Isa na d’yan ang BeamAndGo.

BeamAndGo does not only empower OFWs when it comes to taking control of their remittances dahil sagot na rin namin ang salu-salo ng pamilya mo with their most favorite jollylicious, juicylicious, only the best-tasting Langhap Sarap Meals thru Jollibee Padala!

Choose from six Langhap Sarap Meals na pwedeng i-deliver door-to-door sa iyong beneficiary o i-dine-in or i-pick-up sa pinakamalapit na Jollibee sa kanila! Alin man ang piliin mo, tiyak na swak ‘yan sa dami ng pamilya, busog na busog pa sila:

WHAT OUR OFW BEAMERS SAY
Jollibee Padala - Leonida Bayas.jpgThis is Leonida Bayas, isang overseas Filipino sa Saudi Arabia. Dahil sa distansya mula sa pamilya, humanap siya ng paraan upang masorpresa ang kanyang minamahal sa Pasig City sa darating nitong kaarawan, until she stumbled upon Jollibee Padala thru BeamAndGo on Facebook.

From then on, hindi na naging hadlang ang distansya sa pag-papadama ng pagmamahal ni Leonida sa pamilya, ano mang okasyon, wala mang okasyon. Kaya naman very proud ang BeamAndGo to be a part of her family’s celebration dito sa Pinas. 🧡

#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.

Myrna MVP Award HK_a

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?

Gifts Your Children Secretly Want This Christmas

Sa papalapit na Pasko, hindi natin makakalimutan magbigay ng regalo sa ating mga mahal sa buhay. Sometimes, it’s most difficult to think for gift ideas for your children. You provide them their needs all year round and Christmas is just the time to spoil them a bit. Bilang magulang, syempre ang gusto mo lang naman ay ang mapasaya sila. Dahil diyan, ikaw ang itinuturing na Santa Claus ng mga anak mo.

Choosing a gift for your kids might seem like a hard task, which is why we, at BeamAndGo, are here to help.

Una sa lahat, remember that your children love you no matter what and that gifts are just their to remind them of your unconditional love para sa kanila. Kaya dapat, ang mga regalong ibibigay natin ay ang magkakasya lang sa ating budget. Pangalawa, it’s better to gift practical gifts — ‘yung magagamit nila talaga. Kaya isipin mo muna ang mga hilig nila, bago ka mimili. Pangatlo, alam naming marami kang pwedeng pagpilian, kaya hindi mo maiiwasang malito. Heto ang ilan sa mga gift ideas para kay bunso, kay ate, at kay kuya:

Para kay Bunso

Mga laruan na siguro ang bukambibig ni bunso tuwing Pasko. Siguradong magagalak sila kapag natanggap nila ito. Maraming educational toys we can choose from for our kids from toddlers to pre-teens.

Another practical gift idea would be books and fun school supplies. A short trip to the bookstore nearest you will do the trick! Piliin mo ang librong kinahihiligan na niya or something related to it, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction. Kung mahilig naman siya sa art, pwedeng coloring book ang ibigay mo. Magdagdag ka na rin ng fun supplies, like notebooks, pencils, and pens, with pictures ng favorite characters ni bunso!

BeamAndGo also offers Department Store gift certificates para pwede makapamili ng mga supplies, educational toys at iba pa

Para naman maka-download si bunso ng educational games and apps, get him or her a new Kata T mini 3. At dahil maraming features ang tablet na ito, perfect siya hindi lang para kay bunso, para din sa buong pamilya!

Para kay Ate

Screen Shot 2016-12-01 at 5.09.10 PM.png

Magandang iregalo kay ate ang isang diary o planner. Here she can write her notes, reminders, and schedule para sa kanyang mga klase o para sa trabaho. You can find these sa bookstores or even get planners for free sa promotions ng iba’t ibang restaurants o coffee shops.

Pwede mo rin bigyan ng bag si ate, where she can place her valuables and her kikay kit. Choose something in her favorite color! Kung meron na siyang paboritong bag, damit na lang o accessories ang ibigay mo sa kanya, something that fits her style.

BeamAndGo Department Store gift certificates are readily available for Ate’s shopping spree!

Para sa mas praktikal na regalong siguradong magagamit ni ate, you can get her our Special Christmas packages at BeamAndGo from Unilab. May 15% discount ka pa, when you purchase now up to December 5, 2016.

Mag-Noche Buena kasama ang pamilya even while you’re abroad

When you live far away from your loved ones, any form of communication is vital. Bilang mga OFW, we consider technology as our best friend. Ito kasi ang gamit natin to keep in touch with our loved ones sa ‘Pinas! Gamit na gamit natin ito, especially during the moments we can’t make it back home. Kaya para sa ating mga kababayang OFW na hindi makakauwi sa papalapit na Pasko, don’t worry! Heto ang mga paraan para maka-bonding ang ating mga mahal sa buhay, even when we are miles away:

Mag-chat

If there is no need to make a call, sending a text or chat is the most convenient way to relay your message to your friends and family. Hindi mo din kailangan gumastos ng malaki para mag-text sa mga kaibigan at kapamilya mo! Basta may wifi or data connection ka, makakausap mo sila. Okay ito, especially kung iba ang time-zone ng kausap mo. Kung tulog man siya, siguradong mababasa niya ang message mo pagbukas niya ng kanyang cellphone.

Isang paraan para maging updated sa buhay ng mga kapamilya mo ay ang paggamit ng social media. Kapag friends kayo sa Facebook, Twitter, at Instagram, makikita mo ang mga updates sa buhay nila. Pwede mo pang gamitin ito para maka-chat sila, tulad ni Kassy at ng kanyang mommy. They use social media to keep in touch and maintain constant communication. Kaya nga close pa rin sila, kahit nasa Dubai si mommy at siya ay nasa Pilipinas.

wechat-phoneAside from social media, there are a ton of messaging apps you can choose from. Ilan sa mga ito ay Viber, Line, WeChat, at WhatsApp. Iba-iba sila ng special features pero lahat ng ito ay pwede mong gamitin to chat with your friends and family.

Balik-Pilipinas 2: Kain Tayo Dito!

Tunay ngang malaking bahagi ang pagkain sa ating culture dito sa Pilipinas. A lot of our kababayans abroad, or even Filipinos simply away from their hometowns miss the food and the memories that come with it. Food is one of the things that brings us together. Dahil dito, tinanong namin kay Malou, Joelyn, Monica at Francis kung ano ang mga namimiss nilang mga ulam at delicacy sa kani-kanilang mga hometown.

Para sa mga ingredients ng mga paborito mong ulam (at iba pa), nandito ang ating mga partner supermarkets, Beamer!

Magpadala na sa iyong mga mahal sa buhay ng mga Supermarket GCs:

Malou, Ilocos Sur

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 6.53.31 PM.png“Ang puso ko ay nasa Ilocos talaga kasi nandoon ang mga mahal ko sa buhay,” Malou tells us. Her mom is from Davao, where she spent 3 years to study. Lagi siyang nasa Manila, but her heart is in Vigan, where her papa is from. Kaya as soon as she had a chance, she bought a small property in Ilocos Sur. Sabi niya, isa sa mga paborito niyang memory ay ang pagluto ng kanyang papa para sa kanilang pamilya:

“Namimiss ko talaga yung sariling recipe ng father ko, ginisang tahong. Pwedeng ma-preserve ito, kaso matrabaho ang pagluluto. After he passed away, ‘yung brother-in-law ko na ang laging nagluluto. As in sobrang sarap niya magluto! Specialty niya ang sinigang na bagnet at lomo-lomo (soup made with pork and other internal organs). ‘Pag nauwi ako sa Vigan, gusto kong matikman agad yung Vigan longganisa. Halos araw-araw kong almusal yun!”

Aside from these, madami pang food and delicacies ang mahahanap mo sa Ilocos. Malou also loves to eat what they call jumping salad, fresh live shrimp with tomatoes and salt. “Bubuksan mo nang maigi, tapos kakainin mo ng buhay pa!” Naliligo pa nga sila Malou sa Carayan river, where you can catch the shrimp. Their other delicacies include sinigang na bagnet, puki-puki, and the famous Vigan empanada. You can find delicacies in public markets, roadside stores, and even supermarkets in Ilocos, like Johnson’s Supermart

Kung taga-Ilocos Sur ka, sign up na sa BeamAndGo! We’ll be offering Supermarket GCs for establishments near you soon.

Since Malou lives alone in Manila, what she misses the most is her family. “Mas masaya ang kainan, ‘pag kasama ko ang pamilya ko.” Whenever she misses Vigan, she can always cook Vigan longganisa to remind her of her hometown.

Joelyn, Pampanga

Joelyn at Sandbox, Porac, Pampanga

Si Joelyn naman, taga-San Fernando, Pampanga. Tumira din ang kaniyang pamilya sa Middle East dahil doon nagtrabaho ang kanilang ama. Pero hindi nila matiis at bumalik din sila, lalong-lalo na when they remember her mother’s cooking. Joelyn’s mom usually cooks adobo or sinigang. “Sa amin, we add gabi (taro) and  tamarind seeds as part of the ingredients. The soup is more gooey and it tastes better. My mom is a Bisaya so she doesn’t really cook Kapampangan food that much. My dad is the real Kapampangan rockstar.” We asked Joelyn how it’s like to live in the culinary capital of the Philippines. Hinding-hindi ka raw magugutom doon! Madaming restaurants, turista ka man o local. Kahit nga sa kapit-bahay ka lang pumunta, siguradong masarap ang nakahain!

“Nothing beats the original sisig of Pampanga! This recipe is made from pig ears, cheeks, snout, and liver. Whenever we have guests to tour around, we bring them at Aling Lucing located in Angeles City. You can taste the best ever tasting sisig served in a sizzling plate. This delicious dish which was traced as early as 1732.

You can also try eating frogs here! It’s called Batute Tugak, and it tastes just like fried chicken. Another exotic dish, Camaru or cricket is also a must try! It’s a crunchy delicacy like chicharon. And who wouldn’t miss the chance to eat bringhe—a savory rice dish comparable to paella. Pampanga is also widely known for having the best tocino because of Pampanga’s best.”

Joelyn’s family loves to eat. Lagi itong kasama sa kanilang bonding experience. They visit restaurants that offer familiar dishes, like Susie’s palabok and kakanin. She tells us that most of her favorites are just simple, but it reminds them of a lot of memories they have together. The moments with family are what matters — whether at home, at a restaurant, or shopping for ingredients at Jumbo Jenra. Sabi pa nga niya, “what will always make me miss home is the peace of mind I get when I’m with my family in a place that binds us together. The delicious food is just a bonus.”

Monica, Metro Manila

Growing up in the capital of the Philippines gave Monica a chance to try out different food. Since Metro Manila is the hub of the country, lahat ata ng ulam at pagkain mahahanap mo dito! Pero syempre, wala talagang tatalo sa masarap na home-cooked meal. Her family’s specialty is a dish cooked with red beans and pork or beef. We asked if there’s a secret ingredient and she laughingly said, “yes, but that’s a secret!”

Ingredients for Filipino dishes are easy to find! Wherever you go, may wet market o bilihan ng mga ito. Kung gusto mo ng isahang bilihan, dumiretso ka na sa Super 8. All branches offer a wide variety of offerings, from household items, to clothing, and groceries. Pero bago ka mamili ng groceries, basahin mo muna ang aming tips para siguradong kasya ang budget mo. 

Manila offers a wide variety of delicacies, which are specialties of some provinces but can be widely found around the metro. Some of Malou’s favorites are suman, sapin-sapin, banana chips, and pancit malabon. Whenever she has relatives or friends who visit Manila, sinasamahan pa niya ang mga ito para bumili ng pasalubong.

Francis, Davao

Sikat ang Durian na galing sa Davao. Isa ito sa mga hinahanap-hanap na prutas ng mga turistang bumibisita. Francis shares with us how easy it is to find it in Davao, especially during Durian season.

“If its durian season, you don’t need to make an effort to find Durian. To be precise, you can smell it everywhere in Davao which actually what durian is famous for, aside from its heavenly taste. And even if it’s not Durian sason, you can still find a few at Magsaysay Park, one of the places in the city where it is always available.”

Francis’ dad usually cooks for their family. Ang paborito niyang ulam ay ang kinapasayan (whole chicken soup). Para siyang tinola, but with a twist — the secret ingredient: slices of bananas! “It adds a little sweet taste to the usual tinola. It completely changes the general taste of the dish.” Another tip from Francis, when cooking kinapasayan, you should use organic chicken.

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 6.28.19 PM.png

Kinapasayan

“This is the core of the dish. If it’s not then, it will not taste as good as the organic chicken. I’m not sure if others will like it too, but what I’m sure of is that it’s worth trying!

I remember when I was young, my father and I went out of town just to get the organic chicken. By the time we got home, we prepared everything we needed for the dish. He asked me to slice the chicken’s neck but I said “I don’t want to do it because I pity the chicken” My father then said, “Son, this is the chicken’s purpose, to be eaten by mankind. If we eat it, it will achieve its purpose. Then the chicken will be happy, so I did it. As we ate our dinner, I surely knew that I liked the chicken alive but I realized I liked it even better on my plate.”

The food we have been accustomed to is a very significant part of our lives as Filipinos. Pero kung titignan mo, mahalaga ang pagkain natin because it brings us together. We love eating with the people close to our hearts. Kaya sa susunod mong kagat ng paborito mong ulam, remember the fond memories you have eating it with your loved ones. And remember how BeamAndGo is one of the ways you can show them how much you love them.

Hanggang sa uulitin, Beamers!
