In Lake Charles there is not much of a filipino community, however, there is a pretty good medical field here. Even though there is not much of a filipino community, you should be fine in Alexandra.

Yes there is a filipino community in Alexandria. It's pretty large and it's filled with lots of medical professionals. A good way to connect is to attend the filipino mass at St. Francis Cabrini Church on Saturday's or if you are not Catholic, there is also a Seventh Day Adventist church as well. They will also have different functions like Father's Day or Mother's Day luncheons and serve traditional filipino foods.

No offense but I really don't understand why people leave their own country only to look for their cultural community in a brand new (mostly multicultural) society. What's the point, really?

I've seen and had more Viet freinds in Louisiana than people from Philippines [in BR area]. Not say you won't run into them, as I knew two in HS, but like most minorities in Louisiana [with the exception of Blacks] everybody is kinda sprinkled everywhere with no specific location or region that you could pinpoint where they are more likely to be than others. California we are not, sadly.

No offense... but you have no idea about these people's backgrounds. There are many Philippine-Americans that were born in the states. Many people are proud of their heritage and want to connect to their roots. There is an Irish American Association in the USA founded to promote and preserve Irish culture. I don't see anything wrong with organizations of this nature regardless what countries they or their families came from.

Vanessa, I see the Phil-Am Association of NE Louisiana does have a FB page, but their website no longer works. There is an email contact on the FB page that might be helpful. Or you could contact someone on the Asian Pacific American Society website. You might get some information from them on your local area.
