The very commodious Manila Room was filled with friends of the hosts from the Consular Corps…PROC Consul He Shijing, Consul John Domingo, Consul Jose Sala, Consul & Mrs. Michel Lhuillier, Consul & Mrs. Robert Lee, Consul & Mrs. Grand Benedicto, Ambassador Frank Benedicto, Usec Phineas Alburo, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia, Mayor Michael Rama and former Congressman Raul del Mar, as well as businessmen from the American and Chinese communities.
