April 25, 2010 – Seoul, Korea

A Korean lady was about to eat an eggpie. She, among other Koreans who seem to really like our lumpia, happened to walk by the busy and noisy sidewalk of karinderya, tindahan ng mga de lata, kalamay at panligo sa katawan and strings of longganisa.

Hyehwa-dong Rotary is where Filipinos in South Korea come during Sundays to attend a Filipino Mass. Some of them will go here even if it takes 4 hours ride. We happened to know this through 3 Filipinos we met in N Seoul Tower. I was amazed by how my kababayans get through the every day longingness for their family in exchange for few thousands of won.

Pinoy kahit sa banyagang bansa. Salamat po!
