TORONTO, Ontario — The timing for the launch of Winter Escapade 3 on Saturday, September 12 at 3:30 p.m. could not have been better, with Toronto weather at an extremely crisp 11 degrees C, coupled with blustery winds.

In the seventh floor foyer of the Philippine Consulate General offices, colorful Philippine scenes flashed on a screen, alternating with movie clips of Yonge Street buffeted by a blizzard in the dead of winter.  Stark contrast indeed.

And the invited guests were more than ready to feast their eyes on gorgeous beaches, tables laden with food and the prospect of being pampered for ten days, February 3-12, 2016, in choice Philippine resorts.

Consul General Rosalita Prospero presented the highlights of the ten days/nine nights package offered to visitors who wish to join the cavalcade of delights.
