How to Help My Filipino Friend?
I have a Filipino friend who has been in the States for 6 years and we became friends a year ago. I have noticed lately that he sounds home sick. He misses the Philippines, the food, his friends and family, etc. I was wondering how to help him a little. I can’t send him to visit and he can’t visit on his own. The closest Filipino community is about an hour away and he doesn't like driving our freeways.
I have a possibly odd question. Just wondering if I head to the local Asian grocery store with a food list if that might help or make things worse? I would even be willing to learn how to make a few of his favorite meals if I could get him out of funk he is in.
Basically that's my question. How to help without making it worse?
I do listen to him talk and I couldn't imagine being an ocean or so away from everyone. He does live with his mom and his brother is over here too so he isn't totally alone.
Anyway, any suggestions would be appreciated.
