Not all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) here in Kuwait or elsewhere around the world for that matter, can spend Christmas with their families. Given such a situation, some of us cannot help but feel homesick – this is most probably one of the important reasons why, despite being in a Muslim country, expats like us choose to celebrate Christmas parties / Thanksgiving parties.
The Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers Kuwait Chapter (PSME Kuwait) is one of the Filipino organizations here in Kuwait that has the heart for its members and friends. Celebrating their Christmas Party at Sunrise Restaurant and Catering Services in Fahaheel, everyone felt like having a family here in Kuwait to share the spirit of Christmas with.
From the words of PSME Kuwait’s 2015 Pres. Abdullah S. Guinda to our few questions;
1. How important is it to hold an organization gathering like the recent Christmas party?
It is so important cause it will maintain the camaraderie, unity and brotherhood of the members of the group and most specially to feel the spirit of Christmas even all of our members are all away from home and family.
2. How would you assess the attendance achieved at the gathering?
Since most the members are away from home and family, it is one of the reasons that the event was well attended to celebrate Christmas with fellow mechanical engineers.
3. What is your Christmas wish for the organization?
My wish is to have more members to join with us and continue to grow as a professional organization.
5. How would you like to see PSME Kuwait, 5 years from today?
From Kabayan in Kuwait, Merry Christmas and here’s wishing PSME Kuwait more friendship and more success.
