Extending this invitation to fellow Vespinoys...

Our friends from the Vespa Club of St. Petersburg who have been vacationing in Mindoro for the past several days are in Manila tonight only. They will be flying back home tomorrow. So tonight is their only free time.

Will meet them at their hotel tonight around 8PM for a round up. They are staying at the Pearl Manila in Malate. We are planning to bring them out to the restos in Malate area. Eric, teritoryo mo ito. Sama ka naman dito. ;D

We are meeting in the Makati Shop at 7PM, then we will ride together to Malate.

Sorry for short notice, but it is also only today that Maria informed me of their free time.

Those who are free to join us are most welcome to do so. Just text me (Wawel Mercado) 0917-831-2582.

If you get to read this, please text others who may be free too.
