Filipinos in the area

I have mentioned that there were several Filipinas living in Mt. Home area. As a matter of fact, three of them just live in the neighborhood. One Saturday, I was invited to a little gathering at Ate Loreta's house. She just lived 2 houses behind us. I had a great time. All of them speak Bisaya. We had some pork sinigang, fried bangus, inun-unan, pork adobo and some desserts. I'm not sure when will be the next gathering but I've looked forward to seeing them again.

This was the week before I realized I was pregnant. Looking back, I think I was already 6 weeks pregnant here.

Meet Brandy, the 5-year old pretty daughter of one of my Filipina friends. She simply loves to pose in front of the camera and I had fun taking her photos.

I'm glad to see that you met some lovely ladies in your area! Are there a lot of Filipinos there? ;)

Also, what was your favorite dish at the get-together?

Hey Jenn! It has been a while. I haven't been around that much because of the toxic sked at work.

I am glad I finally made it here, wheeew! It's a good thing that you're able to bond with Filipinas in your area. At least,you won't get bored.

That little girl sure is an artista material. Makalingaw iyang poses, hehe!

I hope to be more active when the Automated Elections is over.

Hugsssss to you and your baby!
