Lunch & Tour at the Manila Yacht Club

We were invited by Ms. Mitch Pellicer board member of the League of Orchid Conservationists of the Philippines for a lunch and a brief tour within the historic Manila Yacht Club, this was after the successful opening of the Flores de Mayo last May 14. His husband family is a member of the yacht club.
