All over the Philippines, millions of Filipinos are going home for their Christmas season, to spend time with their families in this season of joy and love. And many receive wonderful surprises from their families or are the ones who cook up a surprise for their loved ones.
Recently, a guy proposed to his overseas Filipino worker (OFW) girlfriend as she arrives in the Philippines just in time for Christmas vacation. Lea Lyn Fernandez had spent the past 2 years in Hong Kong as OFW. She left her live-in partner Rodolfo Sullivan and their two children in the Philippines as she worked abroad.
But now that she is back in the Philippines, Rodolfo decided to propose so they can finally get married. As she arrives at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Rodolfo and their two children gave her a big hug. It was clear that they missed her so much.
To everyone’s surprise, Rodolfo suddenly knelt down and whipped out a ring box he hid in his pocket. He asked her hand in marriage – and she accepted! Congratulations! As the couple hugged, their kids also joined in for a happy family hug that’s so full of love. A lot of netizens were curious whether the two would get married soon, particularly because they have been living together and have two kids.
Though the couple are happy, not everyone enjoys the same feeling. As Lea Lyn and many other OFWs come home for the holidays to enjoy the festive season with their families, there were also thousands of Filipinos who are leaving home to work abroad – and the timing sadly coincides with the Christmas season.
Many are crying hard as they bid goodbye to their families, but most of them don’t really have a choice because they know they have to leave the country to give their children a better life.
