Philippines Independence Day

My job presented me with the most amazing opportunity to spend a month working in the Philippines, June 7-July 6. I stayed at the wonderful Somerset Serviced Apartments in Alabang (Metro Manila). Fortunately for me, Philippines Independence Day fell during my trip.

Somerset customized their breakfast buffet with more traditional Filipino foods for the holiday.

The agents at the Alabang office are all such amazing people!

When we returned to Somerset after work, they had a Sari-Sari shop (convenience store) set up in the lobby for the holiday. You could get a free Filipino drink and snack, try on traditional clothing, and play a game. I wore my Wonder Woman skirt that day since it matched the colors of the Philippines' flag.
