Cycle 5 – Item 349
20 (Sat) December 2014
at Bar 1951
-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
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.
