I have been living in Norway for 7 years now and I have not attended a single Filipino gathering until last weekend. I hope you do not take this in a negative way. Not that I do not like socializing with Filipinos in Norway, I just did not have the time and energy (getting old. Haha!). Here are some photos of the display of talents during the gathering.
Filipinos in general love music. There was singing and dancing in the party. The program was entertaining especially for the Norwegian guests. I almost forgot, the food was SUPERB!!!!
Filipinana & Barong Tagalog. These are 2 of our traditional clothes. Traditionally, these clothings are made of pineapple leaves or abaca silk. They are used in formal occassions.

By the way, there was an announcement at the party that a Filipino-Norwegian joined the Miss Norway this year. Her name is Kirby Ann Basken.
She joined Miss Norway last year and landed second place. She also joined the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2006 and became Miss Asia Pacific International. and You might want to give your support by voting for her. Click here to vote.
The last few weeks, my neighbor and I started walking 4 times a week (evenings). I am an incurably lazy person but I started liking this activity. We walk on our own pace. It gives me more energy and I sleep much better. Amazingly, I even walk with my neighbor even when it is snowing.

I am looking forward to the spring and walk around Jessheim. It would be really nice to see the trees and plants starting to wake up.
