As a Pinay overseas, you feel like you've hit jackpot when you meet someone who speaks your own language. I'm OK with speaking Filipino (or Tagalog), but hearing someone else speaking Cebuano is music to my ears.
This is Lilineth. We work for the same company. She comes from Cebu like me, she cooks "adobo" the right way, and she takes me to Pinoy parties where I get to eat more adobo, puto cheese, dinuguan, sisig, and other Pinoy dishes I can't cook on my own.
