    We had a blast! Loved the food, the games, the showcase of talents and of course loved the SEVFAF members!

    I want this to be taken in the spirit of constructive criticism from a new person's perspective. I liked the food, but would have preferred if this event was more structured. I think that I would have felt more welcomed if when I came in the entrance to the event a representative of this group would have greeted me and informed me of what to expect with a program of the day's activities. Instead, I was greeted by people promoting businesses. This made me feel like I was more of a customer instead of a member of a group. It felt very commercialized, which is not why I joined the meetup group. I also found it very sad and off putting to see the non-Filipinos answer the Filipino trivia questions more accurately than the Filipinos. I wanted to reconnect with my culture. I left feeling like my culture is all about making money. I didn't gain any new insight into the celebration of Filipino Independence either, which is something I thought I would get by attending this event.

    Thank you Kuya Bill. We enjoyed having you and Congratulations on winning the trivia question. You seem to know more Philippine culture and history than the average Filipino.
