Tuesday - On Enclave by Jeremy Villaluz
After having attended Jeremy's Enclave and discussing even further in class about the issues that are being faced within our community, it left me shocked to find that changes that are going on right under our noses and most of our community isn't even aware of the exact changes that are going on. I personally am disappointed in myself for not being more involved and aware about what's going on around me in our community and it's because I've fallen into that group of people that just wants to leave Daly City. However, I find it sad that when I do leave and come back to visit, it won't be what I grew up with because all of these changes are happening now and more down the road that will leave me to wonder what happened to my childhood?
Daly City was hella dead. -Jeremy Keith Villaluz
For Tuesday's class, we were at a presentation that talked about Daly City and their Filipino origins. We learned that Westlake was the residential area that build homes that appeared to be only for whites. Dawn informed us that the 1968 Fair Housing Act prevented segregation when it came to who can live where.
Why do people think Daly City's dead when there's so much life in the people that live here. There are so many individuals that received fame and stardom coming out of this part of California. For example, The Go Go's, an all female mobile DJ group from Balboa. We also started up the car culture, hip hop culture, and the DJ/turntables culture.
Dawn asked us what we think the percentage of Filipinos that live in Daly City, and we answered around the number range of 50% or higher, but really it's only 33%. I was personally super shocked because I see so many people of my race that it's starting to feel like the second home for Filipinos.
Daly City is known for its people. -Roderick Daus-Magbual
Whether you've lived here all your life, or you just recently moved here. Push yourself to create years filled with magic, and stories that you can tell your future families. Daly City goes on because of the richness of culture that its' Filipino residents have shown throughout the years.

Jeremy's Photo Enclave
Now that Filipino-Americans are able to build a life for themselves, it is being taken away. During Jeremy's Photo Enclave they talked about the geography of Filipino-Americans today. Most of them live in Daly City and some in South San Francisco. In this picture, they were discussing the picture behind them, which is Doelger Art Center in Westlake where Filipino-Americans practice dancing, singing, and other performing arts. It is places like these where Filipino-Americans can go to express themselves creatively, and a way for them to build a life for themselves. Nowadays, as Sonny says "Filipino-Americans are forced to move out because of rent increasing." Rent is increasing because of these new apartment buildings and stores being built. If they were to move out, what is going to happen to some Filipino hangouts and event buildings such as the Doelger Art Center. They created a life in Daly City and made many memories as well, but as rent increases Filipino-Americans have no choice but to leave their current lives as Pin@y living in Daly City, but a Pin@y living in Stockton or Sacramento, where most Filipino-Americans are moving to. It is sad, that they have to turn their current lives into "Remember when we..."
In here, this is a map of countries that are going through remittances. It is hard to picture out, but the Philippines is so small that it has to be depended on other countries for resources and money. With the increase of rent and buildings, Filipinos are moving to other countries and even back to the Philippines because it is more affordable.

My name is Denise Rose Belen, and our barangay is named after all of the first letters of our first names = BRCCD. I'm on my 4th year attending Skyline College with my Art major. I was always so bugged about spending such a long time in school, and not even close to graduating yet but I learned that slowly but surely I will get there. I want to be able to transfer to an art school or get into a really dope interior design program. Our logo, pictured down below, is a broccoli tree.
The word community, to me, means that in one setting people can have a sense of togetherness. They all have specific interests or goals that they may all want to reach and doing it all together helps the motivation come along. I find that growing up in the Bay Area, where so many of our natives are so welcoming to new people, gives us a sense of culture and is probably the best example for the word communication.
"Becoming Really Close and Deeply Creative" is the motto for our barangay for the importance of practicing the core value of Kapwa. It's important that we practice this motto to keep the culture of what it means to be a Filipino alive. GO KAPWA.
The picture above is suppose to be my representation of our broccoli tree but since I had trouble adding a clip art picture from the internet, here is a picture I took on one of my trips.
Name is Chrizelle, pronounced (KRIZ- el). Yes the H silent like when you say the name Chris.
I am currently 19 years young and am in my second year of college and third semester with the Kababayan Learning Community.
Life is hard so we just got to remember to bring our helmet sometimes. - Ate Chanelle
To me, community means being able to be yourself, to be open, to be comfortable and 100 percent real. If life is real then why be fake about what you're about? All positive vibes is important too. So spread love and not hate.
My name is Ronnie Santana, this is my second year of school but my first semester at Skyline. I'm a political science major. I spent my first year at SFSU but sometimes life gets really complicated and it doesn't always go the way you planned. Although, my plan was to transfer back to State after the fall semester Skyline is really starting to grow on me and I think I might just stay for the spring semester. The name of our barangay is BRCCD and it stands for "Becoming Really Close and Deeply Creative." Our logo is broccoli tree.
My definition of community
Originally, I come from a very small town with a population of 13,000 people where there were four elementary schools and one high school. I had spent all thirteen years of school with my graduating class so for me my definition of community is family. It's the people I share all my accomplishments, struggles and memories with. My community supported me by cheering for me at all my games and congratulating me when I received my awards. They helped my family through hard times and never let us feel alone in a time of need. In my community if something tragic happened we all came together to help one another. It was safe and it’s the place I call home.
Haaalloo!! Our barangay group name is B.R.C.C.D, which is an acronym for the members in our group. Our motto is pretty simple, but it means having bright ideas and sharing them with one another to form a community. A community is a group of individuals who share the same ideas and have different ones that can be collaborated to form an even bigger idea. My name is Crystal Afuang and I am full Filipino; however my dad says I am part Chinese due to my last name. My last name is really Apoang, which means strength. I was born in Millbrae, but was raised and still living in South San Francisco. I love to bake, eat, read, dance, and especially sing which is another strength of mine. I believe everyone has their own strengths, we just have to find them.
The name of our Barangay is "BRCCD" which stands for "(Still deciding?)". My name is Brandon Manalaysay and this is my 2nd semester at Skyline College. I'm half Filipino and half Chinese. I'm originally from San Francisco but now I'm living in San Bruno. My current major is Biology as I hope to go into the medical field in the near future. I also hope to transfer to UC Irvine or San Francisco State after my time here at Skyline. In my spare time I like to draw, edit pictures/videos, watch sports, collect shoes. To me a Community is basically a family or a group of people that share common interests/goals. Regardless of what situation, a community will come together for one purpose and in the end hope to succeed in it.
