Hello! I recently got accepted for a job and been working for about a month now, it has been a great blessing for both me and my husband. I wonder if there are any other filipinos living bear the San Diego/Miramar/National City area who recently got here or are still adjusting to life in the US? I'm still looking for friends around these parts, most of the Filipinos I know are through my husband who is in the Navy, so I really can't relate sometimes to the conversation :P it would be nice to meet other people who might also be a little homesick like me :) if anyone is interested to meet up, send me a private message! I have work until 5pm and with the horrible traffic we can maybe meet up around 6pm onwards. or if you also work around the miramar area we xan meet up for lunch too! Looking forward to meeting fellow pinoys!

I don't live in California, but do a search on Google for Filipino groups in your area. I did a quick search and found this:

http://www.meetup.com/Pinoy-Pinay-Group/

Not sure if that will help you, but I do know that about half of all Filipinos in the U.S. live in California, so you should be able

to find others that want to meet up.

Good luck.

Hi Rob63! Thank you for your suggestion! I will definitely try them out. Right now, though, I'm looking to meet just a small group of people...it really is hard for me to make friends and I have difficulty being in a large group. I know, this might seem snobbish...believe me i'm not snobbing at all, just very shy :P I hope to meet a few people little by little and make new friends slowly :) how's the Filipino community in your area? Did you make friends quicky?

I believe there is a Jolly Bee in National City. That should give you an idea of how many Filipinos are there. I used to live in that area but not any more

I've been to that jollibee! Not a lot eat there anymore though, maybe only during the weekends...Hopefully I meet more pinoys here :) thank you!
