OFWs are not just working abroad – they are also investing years and their life into what they want to achieve. However, for some people, these years don’t necessarily translate to accomplished goals.
So whenever we see one of our kababayan accomplish theirs, it’s only typical of us to be proud for what they’ve achieved and for all the years that have not gone to waste.

OFW in Hong Kong Builds Dream House Worth Php 750K
When we see house construction videos, one of the first things that people ask is: “How much did it cost?” As you can imagine, everyone can go on and on with the amount of money they spent to achieve that dream house.
That said, little do we think that the smaller the amount spent, the more creative or resourceful a person has to be. Hopefully, this is the perspective we have when we look at house construction projects next time.
As in the case of our featured OFW in Hong Kong, Janice, it took four years of her saving up and properly managing her earnings to raise enough funds and get her house project started.
She also shared in her vlog that she did not only work as an OFW in Hong Kong but also in Singapore.
Her two-storey dream house may look plain on the outside, but every part of it is a product of her hard work and commitment to her goals and dreams in life.
In the video, Janice shared pictures of their old house, which was made of wood and nipa. And because of her hard work, they now live in a concrete house that’s fully furnished and has three rooms and a bathroom.
Php 750,000 may not be what most people would want to have to start a house project, but believe it or not, it’s all Janice needed to complete her house in the Philippines.
Here are some of the photos of the house project before, during, and after it was constructed:
The house looks quaint yet vibrant on the outside because of the plants that décor the front yard. And when you see it from the inside, the house feels very light as well because of the colors they used to paint the walls and the ceiling of the house.
Janice shares two tips to those who also want to have their own house in the future: work hard and handle your money properly. With these things in mind, she was able to complete her dream house.
Truly, it’s an accomplishment that’s worth celebrating. Anytime she feels like it now, Janice can return to the Philippines with a house that she can call her own home. It’s a great investment that every OFW should aspire to have, too.
