Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of Philippine Independence
Prague, Czech Republic 12 JUNE 2023 — I had the pleasure of attending the 125th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day celebrations hosted by the Philippine Embassy in the Czech Republic, led by H.E. Ambassador Eduardo R. Meñez. The event took place at Mayakovsky Hall of the National House of Vinohrady (Národní dům na Vinohradec) on Monday evening. The event was attended by members of the diplomatic corps and distinguished guests. Guests were invited to try Filipino dishes such as chicken adobo skewers, pork belly, and leche flan to name a few. The event also featured a beautiful exhibit showcasing Philippine national costumes, products and handicrafts. A truly wonderful evening in celebration of our Philippine national day. It was a pleasure seeing familiar and new faces alike. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! A special thank you to the Philippine Embassy for the invitation.
