These OFWs planned the perfect surprise for their homecoming

by | Feature

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) long for the day they will be able to go home to the Philippines to see their children and family. So it’s no wonder why some OFWs choose to make this day extra special by making it a surprise.

Here are OFWs who plotted the perfect surprise for their loved ones.

It was supposed to be an ordinary day for two kids who did not imagine that they will be seeing their OFW dad that day. The overseas worker came home to the Philippines unannounced and followed his children around an arcade wearing a face mask to conceal his identity. It was only when he removed his face mask that his kids realized they were with their father all along.

Bida nga ang saya!
This OFW father pretended to be a crew of Jollibee to surprise his children who went to the fastfood chain for a quick bite. At first, his kids were not able to realize that it was their father who was taking their orders! When they finally saw through his act, they rushed to give their father a tight hug. Truly, an emotional homecoming scene between a father and his children!

Birthday surprise
There is no better day to surprise your child than by going home on his or her birthday. As shown in the video below, a girl was asked to open her surprise gift on her special day. Lo and behold! When she opened the box, she saw her OFW mom inside!
