Hi Sam
Dubai is a nice place to live and work (so long as you do have work). Its expensive if you don't get the full expat package at work so check that out. There is a very big Filipino community here and many have them have stayed for a long period of time so it must be pretty good. Come for a visit first to see how you feel. Weatherwise its best to come between now and end of April - summer months are very hot here.
You can come here on Visit Visa and check if this works with you. You just need to 'fight tooth and nails' in the competitive market. Employment this days is a little grim as Dubai has suffered, and still suffering, due to recession. But you can try your luck, you can upload your CV to recruitment website such as website; website or website.
As mentioned, there is a big number of Filipino community here, including me. But you need to be prepared for the worst and the best. Take note that this is a foreign land for you, you need to prepare in advance you money, self and consequences that is ahead of you.
Good luck!
