    Kumusta, Joe,

    Katuwa itong blog mo, genuine OFW thoughts. Sana may links ng OFW blogs ang government para marinig nila ang boses ng mga ito. Pero sana rin wag maging medyo malamig ang tingin sa treatment sa inyo as heroes or bagong bayani. Cash cows, pero ang pagpasok ng dolyar ang nakapagpapagalaw sa ekonomiya ng bansa kahit papaano. Each to his own, pero may kanya-kanya tayong bahaging dapat gampanan bilang mga Pilipino para sa ikauunlad ng bansa, hindi ng sariling bulsa. At sariling bulsa, I mean, excepts no one.😉

    Keep on writing!

    Warm regards from the Philippines.

    Hi. i’m on the process of preparing for my wedding. and we were planning to have it in filipino. i was wondering if i could have a copy of the misalette and invitation? it would be a huge, huge help.

    By the way, i like your blog. I used to be an ofw and my husband to be is also an ofw. i must say, iba pa rin ang pinas. incomparable. and those foreign employers who continues to put down filipinos but still hire them. what gives? you know what? kasi masisipag tayo. kudos to all ofws. thanks again.

    Joe: Sure Mimay padalhan kita kopya!.. Tama ka… Thanks for dropping by.

    Hello Joe,

    I read your blog… indeed a real eye opener. Thanks for that.

    Anyway, can I ask you a copy of your tagalog misalette. I am an OFW by the way, and going back to the Philippines for my wedding on September. Gusto sana namin ng kasal sa wikang tagalog, but could hardly find any materials. Could you help us please? Can you as well send soft copy of your tagalog invites.

    Thank you so much. Your blog is such a blessing to me. it led me to your tagalog misalette.

    Thanks.
