Vicky and Hans Schmid's Visit

During the first two months of the year, Vicky and Hans come to visit Manila.  Vicky's purpose is to play in the Golden Tee Golf  Tournament at the Manila Golf Club and Hans loves to take photos of the different places they go to.  This year they went to Balesin Islands for 8 days where Hans indulged in his passion of photography.  After they arrived from Balesin, they allowed their friends in Manila to host them in their lovely homes. I happened to attend three of the dinner parties- the one hosted by Felix and Grace Ang, the dinner at the Zabartes well appointed home in Valle Verde and the dinner Daddy Manolo Carmona hosted at their cozy home in Urdaneta.

Vicky also attended a Polo match which was a fundraising for the Tacloban victims and hosted by Fila Philippines. A heartwarming highlight of their visit was a visit to Payatas in Quezon City where they joined us, the Angels to Street Kids, feed 200 underfed and sick children. All told, it was a wonderful visit for the Schmid couple.  As our tourism logo goes , "It's more fun in the Philippines!"
