A very warm welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to OFW Bytes, Shirley Siaton-Parabia‘s blog on the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), expats from the Philippines who live and work abroad. This website contains Shi’s experiences and knowledge as an OFW herself, as well as advice, life hacks, news, stories and tips for OFWs all over the world.
I have been a expatriate career woman based in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman since 2007. I have also been blogging since 2001 and working since I was a child. It is high time I write about OFWs in particular, since this year the Philippines seems to be gearing up in establishing its very own Department of OFW, a government office especially dedicated to this large group of expat workers.
The domain was registered via NameCheap on 21 April 2019 and pretty much activated the same day. The name is a nod to my personal journal’s title, Shi Bytes. The rest of my websites are listed at Very Shirley.
