I work at a construction company in manila and my pay isn't bad. Everyday I get the opportunity to help people by building them new homes and I get to see how happy they are, But most of thetime I see how troubled the peoples lives are in the slums and how they live in little shacks to try and get by. Sometimes life is very dangerous forme, Rebels try to kidnap Foreigners and sell them for ransom and Crime rate is high.
