A great collection of stories about growing up Filipino in a different country. There are so many things to pick up from this book: family life lessons, career lessons, friendships, and litmus tests (which the author is so into).

Truly blessed to have a sneak peek to Lim-Moore's family, which has more memories than hearts can hold.

She is a wife, mother, daughter, corporate executive, and writer who is very much a product of her colorful upbringing.
