‘Hindi ako sanay’: OFW ako umuwi, pero bakit ganun, feeling ko VIP ako umuwi?


A returning overseas Filipino worker (OFW) took to Facebook to write about her experience when she went back to the Philippines from abroad. 

“Naiinis ako kay [Rodrigo] Duterte. OFW ako umuwi ng Pinas, pero bakit ganun? Feeling ko VIP ako na umuwi,” Tanya Arlyn wrote on her Facebook account last January 30. 

She said that she did not even spend a single centavo when she arrived in Mindanao. 

“Wala akong ginastos, ba’t ganun ang administrasyong ito? Hindi ako sanay na libre na lahat,” she added. 

Arlyn said that upon arriving at the airport, she was not used to ‘new things’ including the free wifi at the airport, medical personnel to assist her, OFW prioritization, five-star hotel, food, swab test, among others.
