i am a filipina (from philippines)
i'm hoping that i'm welcome here.
Chii welcome and your native food rocks, I have a friend from the Phillippines and she rocks and don't get me started on her food-yummy doesn't begin to describe it. Welcome and did you bring any spring rolls?
more than plenty...mor like tons of Phil's here in Canada.
Wish you luck in coming here if you so desire...Great country, but lots of time effort and paper work to come. You would find Canadains welcoming and friendly to you, I too have friends originally from your country and they fit in nicely here!!
