  1. Hi Terrie! I can so relate to this post, as in with a capital “R” hehe. Must take photos too of the remittance lines here. The only difference is that there is a separate line for women, which makes the wait much shorter, one of the few odd benefits of gender segregation here. Mabuhay ang OFW. 🙂


    1. Haha! Didn’t realize there were odd benefits to gender segregation over there, Bernice!But I was moved to write about it because that was the first time I’ve seen the queue that long! Sigh.


  2. If you are comfortable with the idea of doing it online, you can send money online to the Philippines by visiting the website of Qwarta Padala. I came across that site when I was looking for cheaper ways of sending money to the Philippines. The prevailing exchange rate that they provide is good and the service fee that they charge is fixed at only P200.00 (4.70 USD). Creating an account was free. Pay it a visit who knows it might provide you what you might need for I also use Western Union before but this is way cheaper.
