Filipinos Abroad

My friend and I went malling today. We met two Filipino couples and got to chit chat with them for a while. They've been here for 30 years. It's really a wonderful feeling seeing some Pinoys abroad. I can't explain the instant closeness when conversation starts. Or maybe it's a cultural thing because we Filipinos are very warm, sociable and friendly. It's like you know one another for a long time already. A simple gesture of saying hello or even just a smile makes me feel home. I thought a great number of Filipinos are mostly based in California or Florida but I can see them here as well. And there's plenty of them!
