OFW complains about selfish employer; uses ‘flat iron’ to cook food

by | News

A video of an OFW in Saudi Arabia showcasing her “out of the box” cooking method has gone viral over the internet.

The Filipina overseas worker, identified as Red L Lee, uploaded a Facebook video of her using a flat iron to cook her meal.

In the 3 minutes and 24 seconds video that she uploaded on Facebook, Lee shows how she fries seven pieces of small sausages in a pan placed on a flat iron turned upside down.

The Pinay household worker also vented her frustration with a touch of humor in her post claiming that her employer does not feed her properly.

“Ang hirap maging isang OFW lalo na kung ang amo ay madamot sa pagkain. Kahit itlog lang na lutuin nagagalit pa. Ang saklap pa kahit patago ka na magluto na aamoy nya pa! May pagka pusa talaga ang kamil,” she posted.

Lee explained that she cooks this way to hide it from her employer and to somehow satisfy her hunger.

“Kaya ito ang ginagwa ko para di nila maamoy. Sa kwarto ako nagluluto gamit ang plansa ng damit para lng makakain,” she said.

Then she ended her post, saying, “Namimiss ko na talaga ang pagkain Pinoy. #Diskarte.”

The video was posted on February 15. As of this writing, it already garnered 1,594,191 views, more than 12,000 likes, and it was shared more than 14,000 times.

Meanwhile, Lee’s video earned mixed reactions from netizens. Some empathized with her. Others expressed disgust over her employer and advised her to come back to the Philippines.

Some were worried that her cooking method might cause accident. While many users admired her resiliency.
