On 15 July 2016 at the New World Hotel’s Grand Ballroom, the Vietnamese Embassy in the Phils. commemorated the 40th Anniversary of the Viet Nam-Phils. Diplomatic Relations as hosted by H.E. Ambassador Truong Trieu Duong (whom STC had the good fortune of greeting that evening).
On the two days when NRCE and the PAGASA General Meeting were held, a few PAGASA Members decided to visit the 57th Mall of the SM Group> S Maison on J.W. Diokno Blvd under the newly-constructed Conrad Hotel. This upscale mall just opened on 15 July 2016 and as a result of the scarce human traffic for the moment, is a paradise of a mall when compared to the crowded malls in the metropolis. After Day 2 of NRCE, STC together with former VP-Roy Chua (Daily Super Market), Treasurer Myke Teodoro (Cavite’s Vela Mart) and Dir. Arjie Lim (Palawan’s Andrew Grocery) went for their caffeine fix at Café Benne on the ground floor of the SMX in MOA.
