I’m here in the airport, LAX, waiting to board the plane. After many years of wanting to get this project done, it’s finally happening. I’m going home with my family and shooting it as a documentary. All my brothers and my sister, even my parents are coming out. My cousins Alex and Justin are with us shooting the film… This is truly a family affair.
In life, many times we plan things, a lot of times these things don’t come into fruition. When they do, sometimes it amazes me. For people that now me, you’ve heard me talking about this project forever. My dad said its dream come true for him to go home to the country he was born in, and to return with his whole family. It’s a good feeling to know you help fulfill something for your pop.
At this time, we’re all pretty excited to see what’s to happen… It’s been awhile since all the siblings have been together for 24 hours a day, that could definitely bring some drama. We’re going to tour the Philippines, research our roots, find out what it really means to be Filipino.
I’ll try to keep a daily diary…
