In the front of the gate of their house, the Pinay OFW pretends to be looking for “Mayeth”.When her mother opened the gate she responded “wala si Mayeth at sa Disyembre pa uuwi rito”.After her mother wasn’t able to recognize her, she introduced herself as “Mayeth”. Her mother hugged her and tears fell.
The reason why her mother wasn’t able to recognize “Mayeth” because of the changes in her appearance. By the time she got inside the house, even her kids are having a hard time identifying her but when the kids heard they immediately recognize that this is my mother.
