  11. 11. “The interviews we did were really an immersion insuch a way that we went to a different place and hadto adapt to the family. It was somehow a strugglegoing to different places because of the weather but itwas a good experience because I was able to showmy skills in doing an interview because some of thehousehusbands we interviewed were really shy sosome of the questioning I did was repetitive just toclarify things.The overall lesson was to bepatient,confident and critical in asking questions.”
  12. 12. “I had no idea what to expect when we start interviewing thehousehusbands. I just had an impression that they would rather be withtheir friends than their children. I also had this impression that they did notget along with their mother in law. Although, for one of the househusbandsthat we interviewed that is the case. Now that we have finished interviewing the househusbands, my littleknowledge of them has now been enlightened. Most of them did not gorunning off to look for a new girl when their wives left. This knowledge hasin fact restored my faith in marriage. I wouldnt say that I would want tomarry a man, but it made me we them in a different light. And how they tookcare of their children was heartwarming it was as if they were the center oftheir universe. I have to say that my view of them is under a new light.”
  13. 13. “The data gathering process was an adventure! It was quite difficult to travel all around the Metro whilecarrying bags of food and equipment in such terrible weather. But at the end of the day it was all worthwhile.Every time we go out for an interview, we come home with so much knowledge and learning.The fathers that we met were such an inspiration to us. They have proven to society that they will face anychallenge, from burnt dinner to a deteriorating self-esteem, for as long as they can fulfill their duties to theirfamilies. The children also served as an inspiration as well. It was an eye-opening experience to hear someof them refer to themselves as househusbands. Someone even coined the term inatay: ina na tatay pa.This shows that they have somewhat accepted this growing phenomenon.If not all, most of the children said that it is hard to have a parent away from home but they understand that itis for their own good and that they are thankful for such amazing parents. It made me think of my ownparents and my own life. I am fortunate enough to be provided all that I ever wanted and needed withouteven asking for it. This experience will be a constant reminder for me to stay humble and grateful for beingblessed.In terms of group work, it made me realize how important communication is. I also learned that you can’talways get what you want. Sometimes in order to make things work, adjustments must be made by bothparties. I was fortunate enough to be grouped with the other four members. Each one was cooperative andunderstanding. We all did our best to make it on time BUT it was definitely not a rushed effort. We managedto lay out a plan ahead of time and worked towards it efficiently. Indeed, it did not feel like a requirement buta journey.”
  14. 14. “It was challenging going to our respondents houses and also due to the unforgivingweather it made it harder. But our respondents were very welcoming and eager tostart the interview. I love listening to them, each of their stories different from theother. It was interesting to know and hear their struggles, how they cope each day andhow they keep the family intact. Actually this experience made me think about acareer in research, who knows right?. Also it made me appreciate my parents more.They dont have to go out of the country to work and leave us to take care ofourselves. They are here with me and my siblings, spending quality time with us andmaking sure to talk to us every night, which I took for granted. But hearing thestruggles and longing for a complete family of our respondents, I truly am blessed.Also this experience tested our groups team work and effort to get our data and makethis thesis the best we can. We worked together as a team and made our datagathering as stress free as possible. Everyone did what is asked of them and supportthe group in anyway we can. Hopefully our team work and team effort helps us finish on time and hopefully presentour thesis in Stanford.”
  15. 15. “The data gathering process was a very eye openingexperience and very different from what I expected. I enjoyedtraveling with my group and viewing how the husbands and theirfamily live their life. This was educational not only for research butfor my personal life as well. I learned how the Filipino language wasused in a different context. I also learned many techniques to useduring an interview. I actually think that I overcame some fearsabout traveling to places of the lower socio-economic class becausethankfully I’ve never been in that situation. Moreover, I am verygrateful and appreciative to my thesis groupmates because theydidn’t mind that I didn’t speak much during the interviews. My groupworks very hard and efficiently and I’m ecstatic that we are on time.”
