Lydia Jimenez, one of Palabok House’s owners, said: 25 years ago, the doors to Palabok House were opened by Josie and Kim Yee. Through their hard work and commitment, they paved the way for the restaurant’s success. Thank you Josie and Kim, for trusting us to further the legacy of Palabok House. I am honoured and privileged to have been supported back then, and to be supported now by staff and the community. It has been quite a rewarding journey thus far.
Thank you to the entire staff, you are a huge part of what we do, and your hard work is forever appreciated.
Even though this night marks a special year of growth, of creativity and of success as a business… it would not have been possible without the support of our customers, families and friends. Thank you for your continued faith and loyalty. I look forward to another 10 years of working, dining, and growing with you all!
Thanks to my partners Tita Tina and Tito Eddie Gonzales

THE PILLARS AND INSPIRATIONS
Josie Yee empathically said in her speech: “In order to succeed, we have to be motivated by specific guiding principles and values such as Passion, Drive, and Focus.”
“First and foremost, if we do what we love, success and money will surely be upon the reach of our hands… whatever our reason when moving forward (drive)… if we entertain and blend a touch of passion behind our words; we can naturally inspire others to succeed.”
Success: It’s easy to get there but difficult to stay there.
“This is very true. That is why, we need to be focused or in the long run, re-focused; especially when we seem to be lost… It is suggested to clarify our purpose too and be reminded that our goal freely-certainly sets our passion burning and alive.”
Lesson-Learned: “To love what you do and do whatever you love to do. Simply because, by doing what you love will always keep you focused and alive!”
