I started this blog on January 2007 so, yes, one year na tayo!

One of the many memorable things that I got to do in 2007 happened during its last week: I was invited as a guest at "Kababayan LA" for its year-ender report, and I had a blast.

Choosing the top 10 Fil-Am stories that made an impact on me as reporter and an immigrant was difficult but ultimately rewarding. I'll post my choices later today.

"Kababayan LA" is the first and only Filipino daily show in LA and it enjoys a wide following so it's an honor to be asked. I couldn't make it last year but this time, I made sure to come.

Here's a link to the video. Here's another link.

Seeing Kababayan's tireless host/producer Jannelle So in action is always a treat. When I started reporting for ABS-CBN more than two years ago, Jannelle was the regular freelance correspondent so I've known her for quite sometime na. The success of her show is a testament to her talent and determination.

Check out her show on KSCI 18 weekdays at 4:30pm, and check out my Q&A with Jannelle this week on this blog.
