Ann and Kenn are both licensed dentists in the Philippines who decided to pursue their medical careers in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). One of their goals is to have an apartment rental business that would enable them to earn passive income in the long run.

Abu Dhabi-Based OFWs Start Apartment Rental Business in the Philippines
According to the vloggers, they thought about starting an apartment rental business in 2017, when Ann started to work in Abu Dhabi. They were able to buy a 340-square metre lot for PHP 510,000. After saving enough money, they built an apartment consisting of 5 huge couple rooms, which would eventually be rented out.
