The Bisaya Summer Picnic 2011
by May T. Mediano
June 19, 2011
This year’s picnic held at Point Vicente Park in the scenic Palos Verdes Peninsula gathered an intimate group and guests from as far as Florida, Texas, Manila and from our very own Cebu. It was a fun filled day starting with the meet and greet of friends and acquaintances that have not connected over a period of years.
Each family brought their special favorite dish and dessert and not to mention, the two “inasals” specially flavored and distinct to our famous Cebu style of roasting; to the grilled fish and tempura silverfish cooked Cebuano style, a crock pot of Jambalaya soup which was very delicious, and other mouth watering dishes and native delicacies and desserts.
The venue was picturesque, dramatically poised overlooking a surreal view of the Pacific Ocean, the seaside tracing the cliffs and a spectacular view of the Point Vicente lighthouse. The picnic wrapped up with the most beautiful glowing sunset which elicited the photo enthusiasts to start clicking their cameras.
The hat was passed around that afternoon and thank you very much to all the attendees for your support and cash donations to the Dangpanan project--
