nalaman ko lang na ina-pplyan ako ng greencard ng nanay ko noong 2008. tapos tinanong ko bakit may green card ako? nalaman kong US citizen na pala yung nanay ko noong 2005. tapos tinanong ko kung bakit naging citizen sya, nalaman ko na hiwalay na pala sila ng tatay ko noong 2004 at nagpakasal sa isang US citizen. lahat yan itinago saken!

kaya ayun, dito na ako sa New York nag aral at nagtapos ng college.... pero babalik na uli ako ng pinas. i feel so uprooted from my Filipino tradition and nationalism.

ako pure luck siguro ang reason kung bakit ako naka punta sa US, lalo na wala akong relatives dito.

i applied for a US tourist visa late 2008. Being single and unemployed i thought i would be denied. kung di ba naman luck ang tawag sa pagka approve ng tourist visa sakin. i think kaya ako nabigyan kasi nakita sa passport ko na every year kami nagtatravel ng mom ko.

In 2009, nag travel kmi ng mom for for 3 weeks sa west coast. wala akong relatives sa US tapos yinaya ako ng college classmate ko tumira sa kanya para mag hanap ng magpepetition. ang hirap kasi nakikitira din pala sya sa sis in law nya.  so nagpaiwan ako sa US then 1 month later, nakahanap ako ng employer na nagpetition sakin ng H1B. Wala kami kilala sa company na yun. Filipino yung adminsitrator nag walk in lang kmi ang tinanong ko kung nagpepetition sila. sabi nya why not. nandito ka na rin lang naman wag ka na bumalik sa pinas. lol ang condition lang nya, ako gagastos sa lahat including lawyer and other fees.

Mahirap ma-approve ng H1B pero with luck again, after a few months, na approve yung H1b ko. April kami umalis ng philippines then by november nagwowork na ako full time. sobrang hirap ng first 7 months sa US. wala ako work, naghihintay lang kung ma approve yung h1b tapos nagbabayad pa ako ng rent sa house na tinitirhan ko. nag companion ako sa matanda for 3 hours/day para lang pandagdag sa allowance na pinapadala ng mom ko. wala pa akong car so kung mag grocery ako nag bus ako dala dala madaming groceries. pati pag babysit pinatulan ko na rin noon.

after 3 years of living in the US, i think it was all worth it. got married here and now i have a permanent green card. hubby and i are now about to buy our first house and start a family.

ako sariling sikap. nag-apply sa agency at sinuwerteng natanggap ng walang binayarang agency fee kung hindi walang mangyayari kasi wala akong pera at wala rin ibang maaasahan. I put everything up to God at diskarte na rin. I always thank God for that kasi I know everything happens for a reason and purpose otherwise baka hindi nakatapos mga sis ko sa school :) Kaya sobrang shock relatives ng dad ko nung nalaman nila paalis na ko kasi they've been telling my parents na mukhang mabubuntis lang din daw ako ng maaga like what happen to my cousins  ;) right now after 7 years i am married, no kids yet and still the breadwinner of my family ;)

Ayun oh! I think di yan pure luck, blessings ni God sa yo yan. Naging advantage mo rin yung nagtatravel ka sa ibang bansa kaya na-aprubahan yung visa mo at syempre perseverance mo na rin. Sana magawa ko rin yan sa tamg panahon. Sa ngayon, wala pa talaga akong plan na pumunta at magwork abroad, takot pa akong lumayo sa parents ko hahaha pero nagreresearch na rin ako how to get there.

^ mahigpit na talaga ngayon, ang dami ng narereject ang working pass dito singapore. nagrereklamo na kasi mga locals na inaagawan sila ng work. i heard south korea now okay, kasi dun nagsisilipitan yung mga friends ko from singapore.

hi sis. i know medyo matagal na 'tong post mo. just curious, anong work ng friends mo in korea? and do they speak korean language? curious lang kasi bf is working in korea pero sa factory sya. gusto ko sana magwork din dun pero wala kasi kaming alam kung pano pag professional. thank you sis. gusto ko na kasi talaga umalis sa work ko. mas madali sana kung sa korea kasi matutulungan ako ni bf.

Hi everyone....

indeed true, sobrang pahirapan talaga ang mag hanap ng work abroad...been looking for one actually but still unlucky to find one. Sana meron [textspeak!] makapag share on how they got their job abroad using agency or referrals. May mga legit sites ba na pwede mag submit ng credentials? Waiting in vain na talaga to. Online lang din kasi ako nag aapply since I'm from Visayas ang most of the agencies are from Manila, it would be very expensive if I'd still go to Manila just to apply personally at currently working pa ako. I can't risk my current job naman pra lang makipagsapalaran sa Manila to apply abroad, I have a very limited budget kasi pamilyado na din...

hi sisses :-)

Nung bf-gf days pa kami ni hubby, nagwork sya as factory worker sa south korea for 4 years and 10months, sa pagawaan ng spareparts ng barko sya nagwowork. Nag apply siya thru POEA, sa mga registered companies doon. Nag aral siya ng hanngul (Korean language) since requirement iyon, nakapasa, then waiting for almost 10months before sya lumipad papuntang South Korea.

After ng contract niya, nagpakasal kami last year, then target naman niya Canada, since skilled butcher din siya. Hopefully maging succesful since next next week na interview sa employer  ;)

sis glyzza026, since may work experience na si hubby mo sa south korea, pwede nya magamit experience niya kung gusto nya mag apply sa Canada. Baka may opening na pwede sa kanya. Try mo visit Golden Horizon sa internet, direct employment na iyon abroad.
