Google PH Pays Tribute to OFWs, Watch This Very Touching Video

Google Philippines pays tribute to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) this Christmas by uploading a very touching video titled “Miss Nothing” on Youtube.

The 1 minute 40 seconds video features the lives of different Filipino workers all over the world. It shows the sacrifices OFWs have to endure, leaving their family behind and working abroad to give a better future to their kids and families in the Philippines.

The video features OFWs that have different natures of work such as Caregivers, Construction Workers, Laborers, Chefs, and Seafarers to name a few. Meanwhile in the background is the lovely voice of a girl singing “You” a hit single by Filipino Balladeer – Basil Valdez.

Moreover, you can see in the video the different Apps and electronic devices made by Google that help OFWs get connected to their loved ones in the Philippines. Some of the featured applications are Google Earth which helps Filipinos in the Philippines get an idea about the location of their loved ones abroad; Youtube which allows anyone to upload videos online so their loved ones can watch them; Google+ a social networking site to help relatives and friends connect with each other wherever they are; Hangouts a cross-platform instant messaging app. Last but definitely not least Android smartphones and tablets are also present in the video.

Watch the Miss Nothing full video below:

The Filipino culture is known to have strong family ties which is why the video is highly relatable and timeless. Especially to Filipinos who have loved ones who are also OFWs. On the other perspective, OFWs who left their families in the Philippines knew the struggle of being far away. They endure hardship and overcome every setback abroad to make sure their family will have a better future.

The “Miss Nothing” video has received positive remarks from viewers on Youtube. Most of them told that they got teary-eyed after watching it.

For those who are interested, I’ve included in this post the full lyrics of the song “You” used in this very touching video for OFWs. Also to give you an idea, the song is part of the album “Ngayon at Kailanman” by the artist Basil Valdez. It was released in 1994 under Vicor Records.

You (Lyrics) by Basil Valdez

You give me hope
The strength, the will to keep on
No one else can make me feel this way

And only you can bring out all the best I can do
I believe you turn the tide
And make me feel real good inside

You pushed me up
When I’m about to give up
You’re on my side when no one seems to listen

And if you go
You know the tears can’t help but show
You’ll break this heart and tear it apart
Then suddenly the madness starts

It’s your smile, your face, your lips that I miss
Those sweet little eyes that stare at me
And make me say

I’m with you through all the way
‘Cause it’s you, who fills the emptiness in me
It changes everything, you see
When I know I’ve got you with me

You pushed me up
When I’m about to give up
You’re on my side when no one seems to listen

And if you go
You know the tears can’t help but show
You’ll break this heart and tear it apart
Then suddenly the madness starts

It’s your smile, your face, your lips that I miss
Those sweet little eyes that stare at me
And make me say

I’m with you through all the way
‘Cause it’s you, who fills the emptiness in me
It changes everything, you see
When I know I’ve got you with me

It’s your smile, your face, your lips that I miss
Those sweet little eyes that stare at me
And make me say

I’m with you through all the way
‘Cause it’s you, who fills the emptiness in me
It changes everything, you see
When I know I’ve got you with me
