|Good Food, Great People on the Day of Hearts
by Joy Shute
T'was a memorable and not your typical Sunday at the Filipino Association, where we celebrated our first Valentine's Day Brunch. Guests arrived at 10 AM to enjoy socializing and catching up with old friends while mesmerized by the ambiance of the decor, table settings, and the aroma of food wafting from the kitchen, carefully prepared by Chef Luong Lee and culinary team. President Kevin Bautista welcomed and thanked everyone for coming, while I (as the Social Committee Chair) gave special thanks to my committee for dedicating their time. Board Chair Dr. Mila Tiojanco gave the invocation, and Program Coordinator Maricar Contreras introduced Xhandrey and Myo to play the piano and saxophone, respectively.
