This past weekend, the Filipino Czech Association (FCA) had a successful launching party at the Na Marjance Dance Hall in Prague 6. The party was indeed a fusion of Filipino and Czech culture. Guests from all over CZ came to celebrate with us.
From my experience attending a Czech party, it is normally more subdued, with soft music, and relatively orderly. This one on the otherhand, is more jovial involving a lot of singing, dancing, and loud music.
As an officer in the organization, I had to make rounds making sure that everyone is ok and no one is left at a corner. I was talking to one non-filipino guest who was at the party and asked him if he likes it. His comment was: “Yes! it is typical Filipino. It’s a little bit chaotic, BUT everybody’s happy.” My thoughts exactly. I couldn’t agree more.
