6 affluent Emiratis embark on a life changing journey to the Philippines. Stripped of their valuables - including credit cards, money and their phones, the 6 young UAE locals flew to the Philippines to live with Filipino families and gain valuable insights from the realities of this side of the world. Check out BEYOND BORDER's episode 1 here

Great Show to understand other people's culture and to understand people. I guess they learn something why most Filipinos work abroad.

Thanks for this link! Definitely one of the more interesting video series I've seen.

I hope to watch quite a few more of that series now.

I can't watch it either but I want to. Maybe because I'm in the US while Pinai and Tiger Beer are not?

I guess it's not allowed in the US?

Here is the 2nd episode

شا‡د.†ت - Beyond borders ا„…ˆس… 1 ا„*„‚ة 2

It is actually nice to watch to understand each other's culture more. hahaha some of them they learnt our language because there's too many Filipinos in UAE. I encountered a lot of Arabs that spoke Filipino and learnt few words of Arabic. They started to work in Sarao Jeepney on how to design and assemble the parts and ride in Jeepney public transport. They started to greet Filipinos that they encountered by greeting them 'Kamusta Ka?' (How are you?), Greetings! which mostly used here in Middle East. 'How are you?' 'keef Halak' in Arabic.

Their Filipino family teach them how to sing a Filipino folk song 'Bahay Kubo' and they teach their Filipino family a folk dance of Emirati. They also teach the tradition of Emirati on how to eat etc.

I watched the first two episodes. It's interesting to see everyday Emiratis, just like young people in any country, and how they are so keen to learn about another culture and forge connections that transcend culture or religion. I was expecting more about how it was to experience life in poverty, like if they stayed in a slum dwelling or something, but maybe that will come in later episodes.

I actually want to see that too, maybe they don't want them to experience that at once.
