Living in the country for three months already and actively involving themselves in Filipino events, Mayor currently works as a clinical educator in the capital while Bernal is a freelance singer and usually joins at different singing competitions in the UAE.
Bernal was a care coordinator back in the UK.
“I have a very good offer from an American hospital to work here in Abu Dhabi that’s why I’m here. Basically, we are here for a year, or three years, maximum,” the clinical educator Bernal explain.
The duo also entered the ongoing Expat Duets and amazed the audience with their brilliance against their contenders.
“It’s fun that we get to meet incredible talented people like Mau [Marcelo, the first Philippine Idol] for instance,” Mayor added.
