“Little Manila: Filipinos in CA’s Heartland”

I must have missed this in my email yeterday…which means I’ve missed watching it last night as scheduled in LA Channel 58. Maybe I’ll find it another time. Thanks M– anyway!

Please check out the documentary, “Little Manila : Filipinos in California
‘s Heartland,” which is going to be aired nationally on select PBS Stations.
We’d love it if you could watch the program on your local station and spread
the news, too.

Narrated by Dean Devlin, famed Filipino-American movie producer
(Independence Day, The Patriot), the program is about the infamous
neighborhood in Stockton, CA, once called, “The City of Gold” by Filipinos.

was once home to the largest number of Filipino immigrants outside of the
Philippines .

  1. Yes you missed it. It’s a great documentary. Check out your local PBS station website to see if you can watch on demand or when it will show again. I think Comcast has in on on demand. Keep in touch!


  2. FilAmPride: Wow…you found my Little Fairview blog. Thanks for stopping by…I don’t have cable, so I guess I’ll have to wait.

  3. I absolutely agree with this !

  4. d3 & authorzz: Are you from the FA pride too? or just google? lol

  5. avarice says : I absolutely agree with this !

  6. conjecturally says : I absolutely agree with this !

  7. necrosis says : I absolutely agree with this !

  8. A, C, & N: Is this a modern way of advertising (spamming?). You all came from Lycos, like ‘d & a’ above from ‘google search???’; it’s getting to be a boring one-liner comment. It makes me think I’m communicating to a machine somewhere.

    OK…I’m checking out Lycos’ free hosting but I’m deleting similar comment from the same place. Do you ‘absolutely agree with this?’ Thank you.

  9. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Gradate

  10. Gradate: Thanks for the kind comment.

    Sorry that something seemed to have been lost somewhere…if you noticed (A, C, & N), the last 3 comments are identical and they are all from Lycos, so I wasn’t sure if they’re spam or what? Same as ddd and authorz. Then the last 3 days, I had 10-13 identical comments of ‘yes+#s’ with no return url and it was from ‘mmm’ so I just deleted them.

  11. does anybody know where to get filipino dresses or clothes in stockton ca?

    • Gee: Sorry, I didn’t get the chance to respond right away. I just googled it, and you could probably try going to Little Manila in Stockton. Hope it’s not too late. Good luck in your search.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
