WATCH: OFW from Dubai shares emotional message in ‘I Can See Your Voice PH’

An overseas Filipino worker from the UAE tugged at the heartstring of the viewers of ABS-CBN’s “I Can See Your Voice” after sharing her story of working abroad.

In the latest episode of the said music game show, OFW Choco Bagatsing joined five other contestants while guest artist Sam Milby attempted to guess who among them are good and bad singers.

As the show’s gameplay goes, Milby had to eliminate one to two contestants in each round based on who he thinks does not have the ability to sing well.

During the earlier portion of the show, Bagatsing, who was dubbed as “Dubai I Hate to See You Go”, was introduced as a band vocalist who works in the UAE. However, she had to go home after her son underwent a medical operation.

Bagatsing was able to reach the final round of the music game show as she was able to convince Milby that she can sing. However, when Milby had to make his final decision at the end of the show, the actor decided to eliminate Bagatsing and it was revealed that the OFW’s story was fabricated and that she does not have the singing chops.

When host Luis Manzano asked Bagatsing for a few words after she got eliminated, she narrated her experience as an OFW in Dubai.

“Hindi ko po kayang i-explain. Five years po ako sa Dubai, katulong [po ako don]. Kakauwi ko lang po pa lang po dito sa Pinas,” she said. She also shared her experience as a single mom who had to go to another country just to provide her children’s needs.

“Mahirap po maging OFW. Hindi po sagot na umalis po sa ibang bansa pero napakahirap po dito sa Pinas. Sorry po pero ‘yun ‘yung pananaw ko eh. Dahil single parent po ako, dalawa po ‘yung anak ko. Uuwi ba ako ng Pinas para makasama ko ‘yung mga anak ko para harapin ko ‘yung problema o mag-i-stay ako sa ibang bansa para merong mapadala?” she shared.

But her last statement made Milby regret his decision. Bagatsing said that in case she will win the music game show, she will stay in the Philippines for good with her children. “Kasi pagkatapos nito, ‘yung sign po na kapag ako po ‘yung napili, hindi po ako aalis ng Pinas,” she said.

Since she was not able to get the grand prize of the show, she said that she will need to go back to Dubai. Her story touched Milby who immediately gave her a hug afterwards.

To make the mood lighter, Manzano even suggested a way on how they can help Bagatsing. “Ikaw na lang ‘yung umalis ng Pinas. Sige na, umalis ka na,” Manzano said referring to one of the other contestants of the show.

Bagatsing was able to still take home P15,000. “Pinakita ni Choco kung paano ka-selfless ang mga OFWs natin. Ginagawa [ang lahat] kahit gaano kalayo sa kanilang pamilya,” Manzano said at the end of the video.
