Last friday, we threw a simple despedida (Farewell party) for our friend Tess, Noel, and baby Nathan. We all met with all our Filipino friends for a potluck dinner to bid them farewell and wished them a safe trip.
After working here in Illinois for quite some time, Tess and Noel decided to return to the Philippines to catch-up with family and friends and once more enjoy the wonderful things that our country could offer.
This is the moment that Noel is dreaming for the longest time and I am glad because that dream will soon turn into reality.
It was a simple dinner complemented with some videoke and beer. A typical Filipino party with lots of good smiles and well wishes. Bon Voyage Tess, Noel, and Nathan. We’ll see you soon.
