California Family

We recently visited Sam's family in San Diego during our June trek back to Texas & while there, we were able to meet up with some of my family from the Los Angeles area. This was my first time to meet several of my family members & I was so excited to finally connect with my cousins!

Our entire clan...

Cousins - Mike, Amberly & Debi

I was thrilled to spend an evening getting to know my family better. I can't wait to see you all again soon & meet even more family members!

I'm a reporter for ABS-CBN in the Philippines. We are doing a feature on what expats like and don't like about the Philippines and if any, interesting stories they may want to share.

I came across your blog, and I really enjoyed reading it.

I know that you've left the Philippines, but I was wondering if you can send me an email with a list detailing the disadvantages and advantages of living in the Philippines, and any interesting stories that you may want to share. If you could also send pictures, that would be great.

Please only do this if you feel comfortable with your content being televised. I don't have to give your name if you prefer not to, and will just use your information for research purposes.

Thanks so much! I am looking forward to hearing from you. My email is

Btw, I noticed that your children attended ISM. I attended ISM for elementary, middle and high school! It really is an excellent school. I just graduated from Georgetown University in DC.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Thank you.
