The German Club, Makati

Last night, I set foot at the German Club in Makati for the first time. I was among the friends of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) who was invited to the "WahlParty" or Elections Party. We watched the elections live.

The place is not very big but cool. Prices of food and drinks are expensive of course, but FNF paid for our limited orders.

I like these different wooden flags of the different states of Germany. I have visited that country twice, in 2003 after my 7 weeks agriculture seminar in Sweden, I visited my friend, the Beil family in Miesbach, Bavaria; then when I attended the IAF seminar in Gummersbach, near Cologne, then I visited again the Beil family after. I like Bavaria/Bayern.

Our group of Filipino observers, friends and some staff of FNF Manila office. It was the biggest defeat for the FDP since post WW2.

Thanks to the FNF and its Country Director, Jules Maaten, for the invite last night.
