I find it hard that you can't find any other Pinays here in SoCal since Filipinos are literally almost jumping out from every bush there is. I am in Pasadena and there is a pretty large amount of Filipinos here and in the surrounding cities. I would start by going around to the Asian markets in the area and you will find some. That's the way we started actually.

Agree.

OP, try heading further inland. Lots of Filipinos around West Covina/Little Manila - there's even a Filipino supermarket, Island Pacific. They have quite a few locations in SoCal:

Though ignore Filipinotown in LA - apparently, that's now mostly a Mexican community, according to my husband.

Yeah I live right outside LA and Filipino town is actually only about 40% Filipino the rest is Latino. You will find more Filipinos in West Covina/Korea town/Eagle Rock than you would in Filipino town. We actually go to Eagle Rock pretty regularly to eat at Jollibee and Chow King. My kids from my first wife have fallen in love with the chicken joy.
