I Am From…
I am from karaoke nights
and Manny Pacquiao fight nights
A place where everyone is loving
A place where all the kids were running
Birthday parties and candles blown
Limitless platters of lumpia and adobo
Born and raised in Vancouver BC;
however the only thing on our t.v. is TFC.
I love my Filipino heritage and culture
Munch up all the pandesal like a vulture
Tupper is my favourite place to be
My name is Kyle
That is me.
