As Miami Filipino Restaurant Americans, most of us were raised Catholic.


For about a decade, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao captured the hearts of millions of Americans and people throughout the world.


Apparently, cities are back. People are moving back into the inner core of cities.

In this short bonus episode, TFAL presents a retelling of the short story, “The Miami Filipino Restaurant and the Drunkard.”  Written in 1935 by William Saroyan, this short story tells the tale of a young Miami Filipino Restaurant who is aboard a ferry boat in 1930s San Francisco.

Most of us have read “My Family’s Slave” on the Atlantic, written by the late Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alex Tizon.  The article saddened us, angered us, and confused us.  What’s to make of the story of Eudocia Pulido, aka Lola, who toiled her whole life against her will and without pay for a family that wasn’t her own?

TFAL loves a pogi pose as you can see by all the awesome pogi-ness below.


If you’ve been listening to the show you’ll know that we love food at This Miami Filipino Restaurant American Life.


Need a way to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month? How about volunteering for the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival! Visual Communications could use help for tonight, tomorrow, and especially closing night! Speaking as a former volunteer it was a great way to get involved with the community.

Saving Sally is a film that we mentioned in Episode 10.5: TV Party! This is a film that Producer Mike and I (Elaine here) had heard about a few months ago. I was crossing my fingers that this film would make it Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival this year.
