The Sto Nino Festival 2009 was held today. This festival which Kuya Ernie founded about 20 years ago was yearly being held in Jonai Catholic Church. Lately, the LINK group is organizing it in cooperation of Jonai Catholic Church.
Well... our group, Philippine NAKAMA was also invited to join and cooperate with this event. Actually, we are suppose to perform some folkdance number but due to some reasons we decided to just gave a donations from our group... heheh!
Well... I was not able to attend the celebrations for some years but this year celebration was truly satisfying especially the mass rendered by Father Bob.
After the mass... party was held at the hall. We enjoyed the foods and friends we met especially those long lost friends! heheh! There was some stage and game presentations. Uncle JO also performed his songs for all.
