  9. Hi Nas :)

    Congratulations and this is definitely inspiring for Filipinos everywhere. I am thinking of giving this a feature at myfilipinokitchen.com

    I am really passionate about letting everyone know about Filipino cuisine. And I am always wishing that someday Filipino food will be a regular option for meals. It would really be good to hear a non-Filipino say, "I think I want to have a Filipino takeaway for dinner". And what you guys have accomplished is a huge step going that way. Cheers!

    by the way, I am linking you in my site. :) Fantastic fantastic job you guys did.

  10. Thank you for the comment on my blog and congratulations on your food truck! It looks wonderful. I'll have to find it next time I'm in L.A.!

  11. I just realized you have your own truck. A big congratulations and I know you will have great success. Just your personality alone will win them over, but I can see the food is really great.
