On Boxing

by Lita Miguel

go!!! ‘pinas go!!!
congratulations filipinos!!!

My husband works in a company that design and install kitchen custom
made cabinets, and some of his collegues are mexicans whom
(according to my husband) would bet who’ll gonna win in the fight of
our contender against theirs. With humility, my husband would
decline, not because he doesn’t trust pacquiao but will rather
say “both of them are good in a way”.

I’ve been out of the country since I was 22 years old in search for a
greener pasteur but never changed my taste of food. A very Filipino
in taste, I feel sad that real Pinoy foods are not well known to
other countries I’ve travelled like Mid East, US, and some asian
countries. Anyway, in our own little way we can always introduce Phil
products to help boost our own market and support our economy. I may
sound funny here but I am always proud to bring extra home cooked
foods like adobong manok, lumpia, puto, etc at work to introduce our
very own food to others. I won’t be surprised the next day they saw
me, they said, “I saw and bought some Filipino stuff from an
English/American store” .Like what? Dried mangoes, guava juice and
mango juice in can, it’s soooooo gooooddd my kids love it!!!!!! I’d
always pack extra food for my husband too so he can share and
introduce it at work like polvoron or whatever!!!

Don’t be afraid to introduce our own products, we have quality
products too!

I just had my interview to a new hospital as my second job here in
the US when the Human Resources Recruiter told me that they prefer
Filipino Nurses because of the QUALITY.

BE PROUD YOU’RE PINOY!!!SEND HOME GREEN MONEY!!!DON’T BE HAPPY WHEN
CONVERTION RATES ESCALATE BECAUSE THAT INDICATES OUR ECONOMY IS
GETTING BAD!!!

    I never forgot were i came from.I ate daeng,alamang,taba ng talangka,manga,kang-kong and the rest of Phil.
    Products.I actually cooked pansit for my american co-workers and they are proud that they taste the Pansit.

    The only thing that i never ate that much is balot,because the customs forbid any unlabelled food products
    that came from other asian countries,because they were so scared of diseases and other type of food bacteria
    that might infect the soil of the USA.
