Hooray! I have received this morning 10 copies of our new PILYA BLOG MAGAZINE, a Filipino-German Lifestyle Magazine made in Germany. Receiving them made me happy. This is the first hard copy magazine I am working on together with the publisher and co writers Mrs. Punk Rock Cielito, @iamshane487, Leah Catherine and Bonet Smile. Special thanks to our graphic designer Alan Valdez for his help and of course to our sponsors.
The PILYA BLOG MAGAZINE is 8 inches in length and 5 1/2 inches wide and has 49 pages. A very handy magazine to put in the bag. The writers are all Filipinos. 3 are living in the Philippines, our publisher, graphic designer and I are living in Germany, 2 part time contributors are living in Indonesia and Philippines.
Nothing seems impossible nowadays. We all live in different countries but we have successfully achieved building a community of writers with one goal. To share our customs and traditions of being a Filipino in our adopted country Germany. Sharing our Filipino German lifestyle to our friends and relatives in our home country Philippines. We let other people “see” our real lives being a Filipino expat in Germany. How we live, we work and what we encountered in our adopted country.
Knowing that plenty of our Kababayans (fellow countrymen) are marrying Germans or at least going to work in Germany, reading this magazine is of great help. “Be prepared!” That´s my motto I got from girl scouting. I wish I was prepared.
Our PILYA BLOG MAGAZINE is show casing about our Pilipino foods, travel places, experiences in our home country and most of all our real Filipino German lives. It is NOT about fancy, celebrity lifestyle of our fellowmen but our real lives working and living in Germany.
I am proud to be a part of this magazine and I am thankful that the publisher contacted me through Skype about her plans of publishing this magazine. It was only a dream of Mrs. Punk Rock Cielito and she included me in her dream of building this magazine. Thank you Maria Ces!
