Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown S07E01 – Manila

Renowned Chef, author and TV personality, Anthony Bourdain covers the Philippines for his show on CNN, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. He did a series on the Philippines before but went back to the country and did another series which I think is equally enjoyable to watch as the other one. In this series, he got to try Jollibee, halo-halo, sisig and mingle with the people and hear their stories about their lives and aspirations. The topic of OFW (Overseas Foreign Workers) was also mentioned here in great detail since it affects almost every Filipino family. Going overseas for work is the only way out of poverty for many families in the Philippines but sadly it also separates families. Someday somehow Filipinos would not need to go overseas for work anymore so Filipino families would stay intact. Regardless of any hardships and conditions that Filipinos are in, Filipinos are always happy as you see in this video. Thank you Mr. Bourdain and CNN for the wonderful series about the Philippines.
