Let's face it, leaving the country is tougher than it seems to be. Although there is the promise of a "greener pasture", leaving your rut and practically throwing yourself to a land where you're barely known is quite a scary thought.
Filipinos are known all over the world for their warmth and that "never-say-die" spirit. Filipinos smile despite the adversities they face – no matter how life-threatening or serious the matter, Filipinos find a reason to smile, giving the world a serving of positivism. Provided with this thought, the Filipino braves a whole new world in another land.
"Homesick" is a word mostly heard from overseas Filipino workers (OFW). There's no rice, palabok, bagoong, manggang hilaw and isaw in the land of pasta, french fries and cheese burgers; they miss the Wednesday family lunch after hearing Mass, the fiestas and the lazy afternoons spent getting together with community. And of course, they miss their loved ones.
But a Filipino is not a Filipino without his local entertainment. A night used to not be complete without watching his favorite good guy on TV. Wednesday afternoons are fueled by the latest showbiz tsismis. But he's far off from all that now.
