KuyaChris and Friends
Sharing positivity, thoughts, music, and art—all through a Filipino American perspective. Based out of Daly City—the Pinoy Capital of the United States—the goal is to empower the FilAm community and Pinays / Pinoys throughout the world by profiling awesome people and spreading good vibes. This is a mix of personal journals, interviews, recordings, and whatever can be created. Hope you enjoy!

This is an overview and analysis of Yen Le Epiritu's Asian American Women and Men (Labor, Laws, and Love). An accurate understanding of inequality is a prerequisite for effective social change.
There’s wisdom in letting go and breathing through the troubles. There’s good in being able to let go of expectations.
Wanting to be perfect is based on the desire to look good in the eyes of others. And that's a complete waste of time.
The true disservice is dishonesty with one's self. It's a crime not to live authentically. Stress and confusion is the ultimate outcome of an individual who denies himself the gift of true and honest expression.
Be honest with what you want, where you've been, what you've done, and who you are. Take in all the good along with the disgustingly bad. Be true not only to others, but especially to yourself.
