By Feyma | June 23, 2007 | 8

I got an inquiry from somebody asking me to post about my experiences of living in the States before. It was quite an experience for me in a nice way.

I traveled by plane just within the Philippines. When I got my visa to go…

Family asking for money

By Feyma | April 9, 2007 | 43

Living here for awhile now I hear a lot of my family members asking for money. The people that really have asked me were the people that are not even close to me.  Honestly, I told them that the only close family that Bob and I would really support would be my Mom.  At that time my Mom was staying with my sister. Even all my siblings knew before we came here that I will…
