"OFW LIFE: My 5-year old daughter's love to her daddy! Heartbreaking moment of my daughter and husband at Davao International Airport .Eto talaga ang nakakalungkot sa mga OFW parents pag bumabalik na sa ibang bansa. I hope one day in Duterte's administration, Filipinos will no longer need to work abroad instead dito na mag trabaho sa sariling bansa natin."
The little girl was seen dragging her father towards her and begging him not to go. The girl said: "Uban ko daddy!" (Sama ako daddy) and "Love ko, kiss ko daddy!"
