THERE WERE at least two choirs (mostly from the Philippine Embassy and the Wellington Pinoys) who sang well enough to be professionals, but were doing it for love; a parol-making contest, and various Filipiniana performances choreographed by QSM awardee Anita Mansell; Pinoy-themed parlor games hosted by Clark and Didith Figuracion but in the end there were many other events that made the whole so much more than the sum of its parts, the whole that was fondly known as the Pasko sa Wellington for the Filipino community in the southern North Island of New Zealand last Saturday Dec 1st.
