The Filipino-American

All Things Filipino in San Diego

the filam history 

It's springbreak and I see an suv in front of me at McDonald's Drive Thru, it had a sticker on it that said "Kapatid" and I kid you not it hit straight to my heart. I was already thinking about this website this morning as one of my old friends from the business mixing days called me earlier to reconnect and catch up.  Over the years I have made some unbreakable friendships through The Filipino-American... and yes, life has gotten me so busy with raising my only daughter and career at Wells Fargo but I cannot run away from who I am, a proud Filipino-American. So here I am and I hope to continue to make more friendships and to offer something to our community through here...
