MEETUP 2021. A Filipino gathering in South Florida.

Last November 21, marked a celebration for all our kababayans in Florida. There we’re different viands of food, new friendships, and a lot of games. The event was hosted by Mary Ann Jones. She encouraged the crowd to network and participate in the parlor games.

In between breaks, the guests enjoyed eating on different viands of traditional Filipino food. It’s so ironic, that the most awaited steamed rice came very late. But all in all, it was fun, food and games for everyone!

Towards the end, the 4 v 4 volleyball competition was changed to 7 v 7. All in the name of fun, the host allowed the move as it resulted in a competitive game between two teams.

While the 7 x 7 competition is ongoing, there we’re games played in the main area. Participants gyrated with a hanging banana to advance the ball towards the mark and back to the start line. It was fun as all participants we’re into winning the games.

In the end, everyone received a prize… new friendships we’re formed… and this event is a reminder that once we unite and support each other, there is no limit in our success.
