I come from Zamboanga and she’s from Cotabato. It’s our first time in Manila and there’s so much traffic. Yesterday, we went around Rizal park and we really liked the sunset in Manila Bay. This morning we’re going to the agency to submit some papers. It’s just next door. We’re waiting for it to open. I am hopeful to get a job abroad. We only finished high school and this is the only job we know that will give us income. We want to go to earn money for ourselves and our families back home. Even if it means we that we have to be away from home. We really hope to be in Saudi Arabia before Ramadan and start working.
