It was my first time being invited to the Philippine representative office’s Independence Day celebration. We celebrated our 117th Philippine Independence last June 12.
The event was held at Shangri-la and I feel like it could have been organized better especially in relation to the schedule, but who am I to complain right? It’s free food and free drinks for everyone! We got to eat a lot of Filipino food although a lot of the food didn’t taste like the ones we’re used to. I think it probably has something to do with the food being prepared by the Taiwanese hotel chefs. There was also a raffle but we didn’t win anything. The people pictures below are from Patrick’s camera.
After a night of eating, drinking, listening to “classic” Filipino music, we decided to call it a night. We were still a bit hungry so we went to this Greek restaurant near the hotel. They’d already stopped serving food so we ordered drinks instead.
I don’t really have much to say about this evening, just that I was very happy to have been invited and to have been able to spend the night with fellow Filipino friends just enjoying the night away!
