This blog and the Facebook Page was born from the idea that we should further our culture regardless of where we are, or where we were born. It is meant to be interactive so everyone can learn from each other.

It’s the place to come, learn, interact and belong…. We were founded July 27, 2009 and has since grown close to 1.1 million members (as of November 2010) – the largest culturally-related Filipino group on the internet!

We think that living in an age where the world has become smaller in the advent of modern technologies makes us smarter and wiser. We think that we know a lot more than o […]
“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” —–Jessica Lange These might be ten small things, but believe me, sometimes, the small things are actually the ones that matter. Being a mother may be […] […]
