We are a group of women from the Philippines that are now living in Norway. And since we cannot take part in the celebration of the Philippines Independence Day in our homecountry, we decided to have our own celebration here and share our happy moments with the Norwegians.
And here I am ready for the day!
We rented and decorated this place for our guests.
And here is Jolly, the superwoman in the group who had taken the initiative so that we can share this memorable moment with each other. So she planned all the details, coordinated, and inspired each and everyone of us to be involved.
And after many days of preparation, the guests can now enjoy Philippine's cusines.
And this is my favorite: Salmon with mayonaise, garnished with vegetables and egg made by my sister.
And the entertainment began with these three sweet girls who danced for us.
Followed by a song of Jolly's beautiful daughter!
Song that touched hearts....
"Pandango sa ilaw" dance
Song " I stand by you" by Maria Stella. Dedicated to all the girls in the group:)
And the last: Kuratcha dance
And of course picture taking first, before eating all the cakes that we baked.
And those that washed all the dishes in the kitchen. Thanks to them.
And now time for games; trip to Jerusalem for kids. Just in case you are wondering what I am doing on the stage, I was the emcee:)
For the sexy ladies....
For friends and couples...
The happy guests...
And now time to say goodbye...until next year again:)
Thanks everyone for making it possible that we can share this memorable moment with each other:)
"Thought for the day"
Old friends are gold! New friends are diamonds! If you get the diamond, don't forget the gold. Because to hold a diamond, you always need a base of gold.
