    This is a very good example of how being an effective ad copywriter does not automatically flow into a talent for literary writing Not very well written in my opinion I found the form and language lacking in depth but at least, one of the few attempts at writing about the cultural adjustment a Filipino faces in migrating to the United States If only for the effort, I must encourage .

    Written from the point of view of a Filipina who immigrates to the USA, this book is a great introduction to Filipino culture and cooking A Filipino dish recipe is the theme of each chapter As a Filipina immigrant myself, I related well with Ligaya, the protagonist This is an account of the struggles and joys of growing up Filipino a in American society Very easy read.
