- A Dubai-based Pinay nurse was able to hit the jackpot in a mall in Dubai
- She won around P1.4 million after shopping during the Dubai Shopping Festival
- The Pinay nurse shared her plans with the money she received
A Dubai-based Filipino nurse was one of the lucky winners during the Dubai Shopping Festival. KAMI learned that Angela Mortos won Dh100,000 or P1.4 million after shopping in City Centre Mirdif.
According to the report by Gulf News, the purchases of Mortos made her eligible to join the Million Dirham Wheel campaign. Mortos shared that she could not believe it at first.
“When they first called me, I didn’t pay much attention to it because I was with patients at the medical center that I work for,” Mortos said.
“I couldn’t believe it at first, but when it sunk in, I was happy and overwhelmed all at once,” she added.
Mortos shared her plans with the money she received. In a report by ABS-CBN News, Mortos plans to give a share to the janitor working at her place.
“This sweet man does not know much English, but he makes it a point to say good morning to me every day and it makes my day. He is a complete stranger, but I want to be a blessing to him,” Mortos shared.
The Pinay nurse also wants to fix the graveyard of her parents who already passed away about 10 years ago.
Mortos has been staying in the United Arab Emirates for about five years now.
