StoryCorps: The Manalo Love Story

Manalo_g1_web.jpg

About 16 years ago, San Francisco native Allan Manalo visited Manila, the capital of the Philippines, in an effort to reconnect with his heritage. There he met his wife, Joyce D. Juan-Manalo and recognized that even though they grew up with an ocean between them, they were strikingly similar in many ways. Here they recall the sparks that connected them in the beginning.

This interview was facilitated by Frank Kingman of San Francisco Storycorps.
