“Nasa hospital kami ng Mt. Carmel Pampanga. Bali dapat mag seseven eleven lang kami kaso wala yung bibilhin namin. Parang out of nowhere naisip namin tara mag burger tayo. Dun namin nameet si ate ng Burger Machine. Pangalan nya Agnes Perez, bali PWD may cleft pallet sya 52 years old may 3 anak at hiwalay sa asawa. Natanong namen ate magkano sahod mo dahil mukhang pagod at pawis si ate. 200 daw sya 12hrs taga mexico pampanga pa si ate at eto namang mt carmel located pa siya sa Sanguin Pampanga. So kung magcocommute sya bali 80 pesos kaya 120 nalang daw nauuwi nya. Kaya ginagawa ni ate yung kapalitan nya may tricycle dun nadaw sya natutulog sa tricycle. Sabi namin bat dika maghanap ng ibang trabaho kase napakababa nahihiya daw sya dahil may mga tao na di nakakaintindi sa salita nya. Saka matanda naren daw sya at di nakapag aral.Kaya po pinost koto para mahanapan ng trabaho si ate. Kahit yaya or old sitter lang daw balu may experience nadaw sya as old sitter sa 89 years old bali nagtagal daw sya magwork dun for 8years. Sana po mahanapan ng work si ate sa mga kilala kong CG and old sitter.
P.S ! Walapong phone si ate, Sa mga gusto po mag abot ng tulong sakanya mag direct nalang po kayo sakanya or puntahan po siya sa work niya. As of now po andami napong nagmemessage and nagaalok ng work kay ate. Sana po madamay din sa blessings ni ate yung workmate nyapo dahil same din po sila ng salary. Salamat po”
