Hello everyone,

 

is there anybody here a member of a Filipino community or maybe a Filipino group that sometimes do a get together, a party or something like that around the City of Santa Clara or San Jose.. I feel so bad about myself lol, I’ve been here for 6 months now and I still don’t have a friends (aside from my husbands’ friends) and I envy my friend in Oregon they have a Filipino Christmas Party. 

 

I just got my EAD, so January I will start working I may probably get and find my own friends, but having a Filipino friend is different.

 

thank you guys!

That would be like standing in the middle of Manila and not able to find a Filipino friend.

Some of the best places to meet Filipinos is at Filipino grocery stores and restaurants. Any of these activities requires you to be the first to start the conversation. So don't be shy. Try and find where there are Filipinos living and then search for churches in the area. Also, hospitals are places for Filipinos work. Here you'll have to be creative in your search. I hope this has given you some ideas in where to begin looking for a new group of friends.

After spending more time in Manila, I feel sorry for the people who live there or are born there.  It's all about the money in that city, and how to get it no matter what it takes.  

 

I would rather grow up in the province than to grow up in Manila area
