[VIDEO] Going International for Grooms on Kababayan LA

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

English? Blah. We decided to bring a little international flair to the book tour for Be the Man, so we sent co-founder Chris Easter over to LA18 to discuss engagement ring buying strategies, marriage proposals and groom duties. LA18 is the largest Asian language network in the United States (fortunately for us the interview was conducted in English). We do want to say a big Maraming Salamat (many thanks) to Jannelle So for inviting us on. We hope you enjoy the clips.
