CHRISTMAS PARTY TO REMEMBER FOR THE FILIPINO STAFF OF CHURCH HOMES FOR THE ELDERLY IN MALTA



By Veronica Ugates
Malta
December 21, 2016

 
 


For a change, the Filipino staff of the Church Homes for the Elderly decided to hold a family affair of fun and games instead of the more formal dinner in one of the posh hotels.

It was a rainy, cold and gloomy night outside on the 16th of December 2016 that many were not able to come but it was not a deterrent to the enjoyment felt as inside the third floor of the Melita Band Club there was warmth and a lot of laughter.

The party started a bit late as everyone came from their day duties or those who are able were cooking the fare for a sumptous feast. There were bopiz and lechon kawali from Jimmy, the very cooperative husband of Marietta Talamayan. Miguel Pantua contributed chicken meatballs.The much sought after pancit from Fae Tibayan, sisig and ginataang manok from couple Jofre and BabyLei Lustre, menudo cooked by Lany Estrada, fried rice, stir fried aubergine with oyster sauce, tasty shrimp halabos in sprite and turbo-cooked boneless chicken thighs. There was so much food some of which i can no longer remember. Then there were cakes, leche flan, puto and other native delicacies, gustatory delights contributed by everyone.

The first order of the night was of course to eat as everybody was tired from work and the cooking. Then the game started with question and answer portion concerning anatomy won by Pinky Kris Diola. it is a relief to know we still retain some things in our hard learned classes in nursing.

Migz Pantua won the second game and Jofre Lustre won the banana pushing orange game. Then there was an incongrously named hygiene game involving lifting an ear bud with a toothbrush and placing it on top of a toilet roll won by John Paul, son of Marietta.
