Project Heal Manila: An Evening In Manila Recap!

Posted in Events, Outfit, Uncategorized by yoshi on May 16, 2011

For those of you who couldn’t make it out to Imelda Marcos’ old townhouse by Central Park for An Evening in Manila hosted by Project Heal Manila, you missed out on a spectacular affair!

Everyone looked ravishing in their cocktail attire. The drinks were plenty, I myself drinking 2 Pacquiao Punches (rum, pineapple, mango, ginger, and some other goodness) and the hors d’ouevres – both catered by the Maharlika (go Nicole!).

I, along with I’m sure all the other guests, were excited to come together for one evening in support of the already steady movement to raise awareness around Filipino culture to our generation (and I say “our” as in the younger 1st generation). All proceeds from the event went to PIDCI.

I brought Louise as my date and we picked up Rich and Justin on the way up to E. 66th where we found ourselves entering a HUGE townhouse (8 floors) with an amazing interior. I finally got to meet Marissa, one of the founders of Project Heal Manila, I also got to meet new friends as well!

In short, I’m truly inspired and proud to be a part of a growing community of young Filipinos who are striving share our culture with not only the rest of the world, but to our own people. It was truly a wonderful evening in Manila…
