Lumpia

2.0

at Bar 1951

-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-

with colleagues

Bar 1951 is a pub.  Drinks and eats.  Live music.  Old school.  Dive vibe.  Popular hang-out among some of the folks at work.  Formerly known as “The Penguin.”

The occasion was a dual farewell party for CAL and JR, both of whom finished their contracts with the regional office this week.   While they will remain within the organization – one continuing to fight the good fight at HQ in Geneva, the other in the Cambodia country office – their departure, each individually and together at the same time, will be a huge loss to us here.  Having worked with them extensively over the past year, I learned a lot from them and will always be grateful for their support.  And of course on a personal level, they’ve become dear friends, so I will miss them very much.
