We Serve the Filipino Community in Arizona

Founded in 2008, Chikka Magazine highlights various aspects of Filipino culture and life in Arizona. Topics covered include family, fashion, and special events that target the local Filipino population.

One of our primary goals is to showcase the people and events that contribute to the unique character of the Filipino community. As an Arizona business magazine, Chikka also places a strong emphasis on outreach to Filipino groups & organizations, health professionals, and businesses in the western United States and also abroad in the Philippines. As such, we are able to deliver a unique blend of news and information that is particularly relevant to Filipinos in Arizona.

What is the Meaning of Chikka?

Chikka [English definition] is defined as a form of interaction that is often referred to as chit-chat or small talk. This colloquial term is a commonly used word in the Philippines and in America. These discussions typically involve a wide variety of topics, so “chikka” is a very fitting description for this community publication. Read More

Chikka is an Arizona Asian Community Resource

In the Valley, things tend to be spread out and not necessarily on a particular side of town. For example, there are plenty of options when it comes to Filipino Food in Phoenix, Arizona. There are also a significant number of Filipino restaurants in Arizona and a variety of nearby Asian grocery stores. In addition, the ever-increasing pool of health professionals with ties to the Philippines in the Valley make finding a Filipino doctor who speaks Tagalog much less difficult, although the location of these practices are not always obvious. Bottom line, finding Filipino American news and information can be a challenge especially for those new to Phoenix, immigrating from outside the country, or even long-time residents.

Accordingly, Chikka Magazine seeks to fulfill this ongoing need by providing open access to our Arizona Asian Business Directory and Filipino Directory. These carefully curated collections of targeted information are carefully maintained and intended to serve as a comprehensive resource for the entire Arizona Asian community.
