Ko ahau i whanau a whakaarahia i roto i te Philippines, he iti te whenua i roto i te āhua o te ka huripokitia e-iho Y roto i te Tonga Asia. Ka neke ahau ki New York, i ahau, me tino tamata ki te kitea te toenga i waenganui i toku te ahurea me te hou tauhou ahurea Western. Wāhanga o taua American whakawhenumi whakaurua te teití. Te nuinga o te Filipinas (wahine o Philipino), pērā i ahau, ahu ki te tatari tae noa ki to tatou mutunga o te taiohi ranei, te tīmatanga o s ki te tīmata i te teití, no te mea tatou ve kua whakaarahia ki te whakapono e te utuafare a to tatou rangahau mai i te tuatahi. (I te reira i tauturu e ahau i tae atu te Katoa Girls Catholic High School na reira, ko te iti rawa i te faahemaraa.) Engari ka ahau te mutunga tīmata te teití toku non-Philipino hoa, i reira he torutoru nga mea e hiahiatia ana e ia ki te matau: ko Tētahi uara ahurea e Filipinos whakapehapeha ratou i runga i tata utuafare here. Philipino i te mau utuafare, te nuinga o Āhia hapu e tata rawa. Katoa inoihia i roto i ki te whakaara i te tamaiti mai i ōna tūpuna ki te godparents ki te muri-tatau hoa. I roto i te meka, mua, Philipino faahoaraa kau i te taata i te raveraa i te mahi mo te kotiro o te utuafare (te tiki i te wai, fixing a broken tuanui, etc.) ka rite ki te tinana tohu o to koutou aroha ki a ia, me te whānau. Whānau ko te mea tino nui ki a matou te tahi mau taime nui noa atu ki a matou i a koutou. (Pouri.) Na, ka rite ki te Spice Girls mea: Ki te hiahia koe ki te waiho i tona aroha, ka koe ki te tiki ki a ia hoa, me te utuafare. Me te kore, ake, ake tawai te melo o te utuafare. Tatou Filipinos hoki i te mea: Ki te hiahia koe ki te kooti ki te kotiro, ki te marae i te whaea. A ti’aturi i ahau. Te mahi i te reira. Te taenga atu ano ahau, ka tau nui ki te rā, ka korerotia e toku whaea ki ahau, e kore tatou e tiaki e mea matawaka ko ia, ki te ia o te Katorika. No te mea tatou e i te tino, me te momo Katorika Roma whenua, te nuinga o Filipinas te whakatau ia koe te tino pea te mau Katorika hararei, he mātātoa i roto i te hahi, me te mau faaroo paraphernalia i te ripeka kahoa, hei tauira. I te wa ano, e mohio ana ahau ki etahi Filipinas e kore e mahara ki a ratou, nui atu te he o tetahi karakia ranei e kore e te tāutu i ki te karakia. Engari kia whakatupato i taua ara, ki te kore ratou t tiaki, i o ratou hapu ai, na te takahi te āta. Re koe i tona whare mo te wa tuatahi mo te tina, me te re koe puputu’u e pā ana ki te maunga o te kai i roto i te mua o koutou. E te reira atu te iwi e haere mai ana i? Nope, e s tika, me pehea tatou te kai. A, no toku whanaunga i roto i te interracial relationships kawe mai i to ratou tino ētahi atu ki to tatou kāinga hoki te wā tuatahi, kei nga wa katoa ia taupokina iho e te nui o te kai toku whaea whakahaere ki te faaineine i roto i te rua-ra te wā (Ae, i te rua. Te kai te mea nui). Kore e taea e koe te mawhiti i te karaoke mīhini. I te Philipino ko te utuafare herea ki te ake i te iti rawa i te kotahi (no rerekē i te hunga i rerekē, waiata, wairua). Na, ki te whiwhi koe i karangatia ki te rōpū, me te katoa, ko te inu, me te waiata, te tatarahapa nei au, engari e kore e taea e koe te mawhiti i te mic. Tatou ka te faahepo koe ki te waiata. Takatu nei whakakitea i te moni i roto i te teití ahau i kite i te reira i te wero a, no te kitea e ratou i roto i ahau i tiaki ahau i ahau mo te faaipoiporaa. Ratou whakaaro i ratou e nehenehe e āta te pēhanga i ahau, a ka whati i ahau ki raro, otiia Filipinas e whakaarahia ki te whakapono sex mea mo te tangata te hiahia koe ki te noho i te toenga o to outou oraraa. (To tatou Katorika karakia nui i te wahi i roto i te e, rawa.) O te akoranga, i te tahi Filipinas ahu ki te kia iti iho te moepuku momo atu i ētahi atu, engari ara ka, pea ratou hiahia e kore e ki te kōrero nuitia e pā ana ki to ratou fakasekisualé ngā wheako. Titiro hoki te ngahau te po i roto i. Kei ahakoa koe i te foodie, hītori buff, ranei noa ake mo te iti mōrearea, whakaaro i enei ngahau ki te rā i roto i te Washington DC
