a party with a heart.....

Last Saturday (December 17) we have celebrated our Filipino Christmas Party administered by the Couple's for Christ in Marseille Region, this Christmas Party was open to eveyone even non Christian were embraced. That day it was not just one of those second rate scene but it was an exceptional & remarkable occassion for everyone especially to our Kababayans back home. The CFC (Couple's For Christ) Gawad Kalinga made a TOMBOLA project ( 2 euro / ticket ) there were prizes at stake. A fund consecrated for the poor to finance a small house for every family who cannot afford to have one. Once again, Filipinos working abroad have summoned all together to lend a hand even we are separated by thousands of miles from our country we only have one intention or purpose in mind....to share the Good Spirit of Christmas. Our two cents worth !!!

First Prize : Television Set
Second Prize : Mini Hi-Fi Chain Stereo
Third Prize : MicrowaveGrill 2 in one
Lots of Consolation Prizes


Every group prep…

In the Philippin…

It was Monday afternoon, I was on my way to pick up my son from school when the teacher approached me saying that they can't figured out why my son doesn't stop crying.

We arrived at home, I asked my son " Où tu as mal ? Quest-ce que tu as ? Are you hurt, where? What do you have? I was desperate because he cannot totally express how he feels. But then, it was a mother instinct that came out within me....I hurriedly check his tempera…
