Hi! We’re Jamie + Mestelle, and we make up The Ube Way! Short story short, we met through a mutual friend and found that we have a lot in common, from the way we were raised to the types of food we like and to the travel wanderlust we both have. During brunch one Sunday, we thought of how cool it would be to chronicle our personal stories and current happenings as Fil-Ams (Filipino-Americans) living in the big city.
The notion of The Ube Way is so much more than just taking food selfies or covering a cool event we attended—it’s a state of mind. We aim to give you the best of both worlds, a Filipino flavor with an American twist. Stay tuned in as we cover a wide range of topics such as events, food, and travel.
Thanks for stopping by, mga bagong kaibigan (new friends). October is Filipino American History Month so our next set of posts will be our way of celebrating and paying tribute to our culture. Mabuhay!
