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. Around May 2009, I was browsing Facebook’s other Filipino Groups and Pages and realized that there wasn’t really a place in Facebook where Filipinos can mingle and meet others. These Groups/Pages, though promoting Filipino culture and pride, did not have interaction between its members. Their members would simply visit the group in the beginning, then forget about it afterwards and seldom return. This is the basis and philosophy behind this Page. 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!

I am a Nurse. Whether I spend most of the time at the bedside or in front of students, I am still a nurse. Every day, my goal is to influence a nurse to do her very best, as others have done before. I am but one of the fortunate ones given the privilege […] […]
Nagtungo si Dessa sa silid ng anak ng mapansing wala ito. Alas otso ng umaga pa lamang at marahil ay nasa kaibigan lang ito pumunta na nasa subdivision ding iyon. Nakita niyang nakaayos ang mga gamit. Kapansin-pansing malinis ang silid at masinop na nakatupi ang higaan. Sa biglang tingin sa lamesang gawa sa kahoy, ay […] […]
