    Hi Nas 🙂

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

    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.

    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.
