Hello! Welcome to A Momma Abroad. I'm Amber Folkman and AMA is where I share my perspective of life abroad and my love for the Philippines, there is so much to love!
I am a California native, spent my university years in Hawaii (where I met my main man), spent a few years in Seattle and relocated in 2009 to Manila for my husbands job in the BPO industry.
We have three crazy boys ages six, four and two. We refer to them as our #3PinoyBoys as life in the Philippines is all they know.
AMA is where I share my perspective of life abroad and my love for the Philippines, there is so much to love!
My goal for AMA is to chronicle our adventures, cultural lessons and other perks of the Philippines to spread positivity. There is so much to love here.
My goal is to cultivate a community that helps Manila dwellers not just survivor but thrive. We really do have it all here, I'll go find it for you, all you have to do is keep reading.
