    What a good “home brew” documentary about Filipinos in Hawaii and made me appreciate them more and the philippines is a good country and the people are friendly and have that charm. The sakadas paved the way for the new generation

    i'm Filipino from the Philippines, also of Ilocano ancestry and I like his Filipino accent 😁 "pader" (father) "pild" (field) "lab" (love) "porty" (forty). So happy for him and his family that they were able to lead good lives in Hawaii. But for me, I am already happy and content in my life in the Philippines with my own people, my own language, my own culture and my own identity. I don't want to become a minority or immigrant that needs to assimilate to the majority culture.
