Last weekend flew by quickly. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Saturday morning only to be advised by my boss that I had to go back to Manila the next day for a short notice, work-related meeting at PICC. I badly needed to rest but the said meeting was crucial in discharging my tasks for our upcoming events so off I went. I told myself to make bawi na lang once all of our five ASEAN-related events are over and done with. Despite my crazy sched that weekend, the hubby and I were able to squeeze in attending the anticipated mass at this new church in Las Piñas and a meetup with Team Accent Philippines (TAP a.k.a the car group he wants to be part of).
I’ve never attended a soirée before. Last night was the first time and it was a pleasant experience for me. Just to be clear, I didn’t go there as a guest. It was purely work for me and for my officemates. But we did get seated in one of tables (this rarely happens) and we took advantage of that opportunity to enjoy the rest of the night.
The cultural soirée was for the participants of the World Economic Forum for East Asia which the Philippines hosted this year. As expected, it was attended by our President (and one more leader), a handful of local and foreign ministers, members from the international business community and media and private individuals representing their respective groups and organizations. It started with cocktails, then dinner and ended with a cultural show.
