I know. Most of my uncles have to work out in Saudi Arabia every couple of months & sometimes they are there for years. I also have aunties who work in Hong Kong. That's the P.I.s biggest commodity. Their people.

Great article. I first encountered this when I worked on a cruise ship. Our entire hotel staff was Filipino. It was just what they did -- go off on whatever ship was available for ten months and work their butts off and send the money home. Very friendly and humorous men and women -- and very hard workers -- but I remember feeling kinda sad about it.
