In 2011, my family and I vacationed in Maui for the first time. I planned on getting 'FILIPINO STRENGTH' t-shirts, just as I had done when I had vacationed in Oahu. But I found out, those 'Filipino Strength' tees were only available in Honolulu. A friend did tell me about the brand 'Maui Built.' We went to the store and bought some cool apparel.

Then I thought that maybe I can start a 'Filipino Built' brand. My aunt thought that it was too long of a name. So I shortened it to 'Pinoy Built.' I registered the domain name on March 29, 2011.

I created a few samples of 'Pinoy Built' tees, but being in the IT Consulting business, I got busier with various websites and blogs.  Filam.us was one of those sites.  I envisioned a Filipino-American social network and got several friends to contribute.  Over the years, I've consolidated my technology and personal blogs here so you may find posts by friends.

You're welcome to join me on my blog.  Let's create a Filipino 'social network' so that Facebook doesn't have all the fun and $$$?
