in Rockwell.
Written & Photographed by JUN REYNALES.

              Rockwell Tent, Makati City, April 20, 2012 -- No, I’m not talking about when Satan broke loose here. Hehe. Well it was about when the Bolivarian Republic de Venezuela, through their Venezuelan Embassy in the Philippines, organized and presented their 1st Venezuelan Cultural Night, held at Rockwell Tent, Rockwell Center, Makati City last April 20, 2012.

            Spearheaded by their Charge d’ Affairs, Madame Yelitza Ventura Polanco, it was a wonderful night of Venezuelan Music, Dance, Artworks, Gastronomic fete, and their first Painting Competition for some wonderful and talented children from the Holy Family Home Girls. The beautiful Mrs. Ventura Polanco, also a black-belt judo afficionada, was graceful and charming as she led the officials and staffs of the embassy in presenting the different exciting exhibition of music, dances and artwork. 

            It was the Taytay Youth Philharmonics Orchestra conducted by Maestro Delfin Calderon that regaled the local and foreign guests to some wonderful venezuelan music. It was also a night of presentation of the traditional Venezuelan Dance, as choreographed and interpreted with a venezuelan dancer Ms. Dina Mary Berrio de Grieve, and assisted by the beautiful young girls from the Holy Family Home Girls.

            The short program ended with a gastronomic fete of tasteful venezuelan cocktail foods that surprised most of the guests as they all ended up filled to their tummies – empanaditas, croquetas, tortillos, and others.

            Oh well... Heaven can wait.  Life is Good!
