    I am brand-new to Glock Talk and Band of Glockers, and this is my very first posting! I am a Filipino-American and by chance came across this forum. My parents are from the Philippines although I was born here in the USA. I speak and read Tagalog very well (even though I've been to the PI only once, when I was 5), and make excellent lumpia (which is important, no?). I love my heritage and want to further enhance my appreciation for our rich culture, while at the same time share a common interest in Glocks. So why not combine the two? ;) I also like the postings here - they remind me of my family. he he he

    I am naturally a pretty good aim/shooter - or so I've been told, and judging from the last set of hostage and other targets I shot. I enjoy going to the local club and shooting a rented Glock 17. Very relaxing. I don't own a Glock yet, but when the time comes for a decision, I am hoping for some guiding and input from this community.

    Salamat po!

    Welcome to the forum, berlin_brigade. I hope you can give us a sample of your lumpia if you get a chance to visit the Philippines :)

    P.S.

    Would those be lumpiang hubad or shanghai rolls that you make very well?

    welcome, but first, you need to prove yourself that youre a filipino in appetite as well as in heart and heritage, a bowl of dinuguan a some balut with beer will do nicely;f

    Thanks to all for such a warm welcome!~woohoo~

    First, I have to say - this is the friendliest forum I've ever visited. And fun too! ;Y

    Second, I am technically a "SIS," or "baba-eh", or "Mrs." - not a "bro" or "dude," although I don't mind being called one - it can be like a term of endearment, like "mare" or "pare," no? :cool:

    My Tatay let me shoot squirrels (not hostages! he he he) with a BB gun. When I was older, we went fishing and to "turkey shoots" which are popular in Texas. We didn't really shoot turkeys, just targets. Whoever was close or got bulls eye wins a turkey. We also shot at "clay pigeons" (skeet). I also went duck and deer hunting. I always skin, clean and eat what I kill, so I have to be picky about what I shoot at. he he

    Finally, to a few of my new friends who had questions or suggestions:
    I can make shanghai and spring roll, both. The secret according to my Visayan mother is partly in the rolling.
    I will eat anything with the beer (I like S.M. dark; the real stuff is hard to find here in the States) - I am practicing for when I go back to the homeland.;c

    Talk to you soon - about Glocks and anything else that comes to mind. Thanks again!;)
