Diaspora Journey: Stories of Philippine Migration to Hong Kong
Authors: Leila Rispens-Noel, Heda Bayron, Joy Tadios-Arenas, Cindy Wong
Filipinos will do anything to have a better life – even if it means being away from home. Despite being only a two-hour flight away from Manila, Hong Kong is an entirely different world but still one of the places where hundreds of thousands of Filipinos find solace, redemption, and salvation. To others, a place of misery and torment.
Diaspora Journey is a collection of stories of Filipinos who traveled, worked, and treated Hong Kong as their new home. The question is not to stay or to leave—it’s the journey where migration finds its new meaning that matters.
