My Malaysian friend and I had an interesting conversation yesterday. We both started on the differences between their educational system with that of the Philippines and ended up our topic with the different jobs available. She was so surprised with the fact that a lot of Filipinos are taking up nursing or a short term 'care giver's course. In Malaysia, they government has to encourage the students to take up nursing and it's quite uncommon to have male nurses too. Then, I babbled on our friends and relatives who are outside the country now and working in hospitals, home for the elderly or centers that caters to people who are on Assisted living or Independent living. They are earning quite a lot and their jobs has really been a great support to their families back home.
Mabuhay ang mga OFW!! :)
