Come join the FREE Entrance to 3 - Day Enjoy New Zealand Expo 2016, May 20-22 in Glorietta Mall, Makati

From covering the Great British Festival, to Holi  Festival of Colors India then the 1000 Smiles Thai Festival here in Manila, I am excited to join another event that promotes the culture of another country I dream to visit one day.  I have mentioned in my previous posts that I have a $2500 worth of airline miles all mine to burn so after the whole Southeast Asia, I am definitely conquering the world one country at a time. Who knows, New Zealand is the next? I even blogged about The Government Of New Zealand Is Offering A Working Holiday Scheme To Young Filipinos For Up To 12 Months For 2016 - 2017 way back in January.

Speaking of, the New Zealand Embassy Manila has a big event coming this Friday to let us Filipinos experience a taste of New Zealand right here in our country! Dubbed as "Experience New Zealand 2016", this 3 - day expo will showcase not only the best of New Zealand food and beverage, but will also highlight key NZ travel destinations and educational institutions to be held this weekend May 20 - 22, 2016 at the Glorietta Activity Center, in the Glorietta Mall, Makati City. 

Here is the official press release statement sent over by New Zealand Embassy Manila: 

Get ready to experience a taste of New Zealand in the Philippines! Experience New Zealand 2016 will showcase not only the best of New Zealand food and beverage, but will also highlight key NZ travel destinations and educational institutions. “This Experience New Zealand fair comes at special time, as the Philippines and New Zealand celebrate 50 years of diplomatic ties in 2016,” says New Zealand Ambassador David Strachan.
