Bing, my BDO ex-colleague and OFW-mate, will be assigned in Ras Al-Khaima, the northernmost Emirate, out of the 7 Emirates of UAE.
Filipinos are rarely assigned there, usually our kababayans would rather be posted in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi but Bing agreed with the assignment because it’ll be a good career move.
Before she moved, Bing knew what was coming her way: Solitaire; especially that her move will be on the first week of December.
“Anlungkot naman ng Pasko ko. Mag-isa lang ako sa RAK,” she self-pitied.
I needed to cheer her up so I answered, “Lahat naman tayo malungkot eh, basta isipin mo lang…. Mas malungkot ka.”
