A taste of Singapore in Manila 06/11/2008 12:31 AM

Cora Lelina and her Singaporean consultant HK Tan outside Nasi Lemak

Not regretting past decisions is nothing new to former overseas Filipino worker Cora Lelina. After all, it was almost a rash decision that brought her to Singapore to work as the personal assistant of a Finnish executive 20 years ago.
Today, Lelina, 42, told, she does not regret another move – the one that brought her home to the Philippines to set up a Singaporean restaurant with the best friend of her former boss.
(Some months ago I wrote this story and I was enamoured with Cora and the life she had built. I wish other OFWs could be as enterprising as her.)
