Green mango and bagoong is one of my favorite snacks.  Here in the middle of the U.S., I don't have a hard time finding bagoong, but it has been pretty hit and miss with the green mangos.  Lots of mangos at the store, but not always hard and green!  I've learned to settle for half-way ripe mango and bagoong.

 

Filipino food is pretty cool, because they don't believe in wasting anything.  That old saying, "Everything but the oink" is certainly true.  And, I'll bet that somewhere, some smart Pinoy got a sound bite of the oink and spun it into a hot cut at a club somewhere.  :-)

Green unripe mangos right? Yeah I love that. Especially when it's the right amount of sour. I like my bagoong sauteed.

Filipino food is good, but a lot of it isn't "pretty", so I think that is why you don't see Filipino restaurants popping up - like Thai restaurants - in suburbs across the US.

Hello, mga kababayan :P

Filipino Head-fier living in Dubai. Lived in the squatter areas of Pasay City in Manila for 12 years. Still, my friends say its weird I don't act like one.. I say its all in the parenting :P
Its sad, this emirate is very nice, it has an impressive nightlife and entertainment areas, as well as areas for those who would enjoy a tranquil time, although I haven't seen someone with decent headphones (everyone's headphones are at least Nokia/Sony/iBuds/Beats/Bose/Panasonic/Philips). I'm pretty sure at least people in Downtown Dubai/Uptown Mirdiff/Jumeirah Beach Residences (since those places have really rich people living in them) have at least good headphones, although I have yet to see one.

Lots of Filipinos living here as well. I mean, probably 60-75% of the people here are expatriates.

I am first generation. My mother is from Manila and my father is from Gapan, Nueva Ecijia. Born and raised in NYC.

 

I understand tagalog and can speak it when spoken too. I picked up Rosetta Stone for the wife and I.

I was born here in the states but both parents are born and bred there. They retired back there a few years ago. I understand tagalog to a point.

Better late then never but Miles is Filipino. Born and educated in Manila. Been stateside for 28 years. Feels good to be among kababayan headphone lovers.

Sure, both my parents are filipino and I can understand a little bit of tagalog, especially the bad words and the sexual stuff.  My girl is filipino and she can speak it fluently though.

When I was a little kid, I had Fillipino neighbors and they were great. I know a couple Filipino people and they are great also. I wish I had more exposure to the culture.
