2023 Collective: 10 British Filipino Vloggers & Content Creators to be inspired by
We have a bunch of Filipino Vlogger friends that we’d like you to meet. They make detailed unboxing and reviews of the latest happenings and clashes between British and Filipino culture. We’re not only ranking on the usual traffic, social media followers and domain authority; but more so on freshness, delivery and sociable-ness. So yes I am delighted to recommend them as creatives to follow and be inspired by:
Talented and humble in my opinion. The self labelled “Filmmaker. Photographer and Mediocre YouTuber” is Passionate about cinema, creativity, food culture, and reconnecting with his Asian heritage! ✨ It’s been a minute since his last video at the time of this writing but one his content is very engaging and personal. ‘Being Half Asian’ is certainly my favourite. The East London based creative produces various works ranging from narrative to documentary and music video.
Luther shares everything from tips into getting into Oxford University with no A-Levels all the way sharing adventures and thoughts about life. Growing up as a British Filipino, dual-nationalisms and sharing content with other FilSoc Bloggers across the UK; Luther juggles his studies and uses Vlogging as both outlet and intuition to bless his viewers with vibrant content about pretty much everything - including rating every coffee shop in Birmingham. Let’s also remember Adobo, nilaga, tinola, and sinigang. These are four dishes that many grew up with and associated with being Filipino.
British Dad speaking Tagalog and Karaoke; Growing up as ‘halfies’; Filipno vs. English Breakfast and childhood memories ares some of the memorable content Jsamin shares on her vegan friendly platform. Sometimes UK, Sometimes US but the currently based family centred Jasmine shares everything from family quizzes, beauty and skin care and food. Spicy Noodles and starting your own Filipino product business should also be mentioned.
The Maddocks (British-Filipina)
The long-distance love story that will melt your heart away. The Maddocks are a British and Filipina couple who found love in the time of Coronavirus. What started as a long distance relationship is now a weekly content YT channel narrating on all-sorts from camping to cooking to travels and more. Bilingual Lea (Bisaya and Tagalog) along with Matt (English) also practically speak all three languages within all of their videos so don’t be fooled by the often Bisaya and Tagolog titled videos - there’s a language for everyone.
A Filipina in the UK
The channel name pretty much sums them all up. This channel is about giving you an idea how a Filipino can live a simple happy life in the UK. An honest Dem makes it no secret is her dream to marry a foreigner whilst she was young and in the Philippines. The dream came true when she met Spence in 2009. The romance and travels continued when she moved to the UK in Jan 2010 and married a few months later. Their son Jack was born in December the same year. Dem speaks about the differences between both sets of cultures; food; gardening, migration topics and more. There is always an honest and hilarious conversation between the both of them. The ‘How We Me’ video illustrates this very much. Dem spends her time looking after Jack when Spence is a fork lift truck driver. They have a small multi-acre site holding with Chickens for eggs and meat. Also a few Sheep and a large organic vegetable garden. They grow most of their own food naturally without chemicals. “What we like doing is eating food we grow ourselves.”
