My New Year resolution of promoting earth-friendly celebrations was put to the test when I joined a reunion of some high school friends hosted by Dr. Anabel Bagayas in their lovely and exclusive family compound Villa Violeta. The last time I checked, this was still part of the Menzi Farms, but the place is so beautiful now.
It turned out, Anabel is also earth-friendly. She chose to have the party in the garden, thus saving energy as well as giving us a view of nature’s beauty and abundance. Food was simple but very fulfilling and delicious. Fish was served raw or grilled. Meat for the carnivorous was served barbeque style. The rest was fruits, nuts and vegetables. So, I was happy, aside from the fact that I met friends I haven’t seen for twenty five years.
