  3. What a great event that CCI-France Philippines setup and excellent way to cater and get people together for great family fun. The La Cornue products sound like a great addition to the kitchen product line too.

  4. What a creative way to promote diplomacy and inter-cultural exchanges! I love the idea and wish more countries would initiate programs like this.

  5. The tournament looks like a great event to get everyone together in a healthy sport. Looks like a lot of fun actually!

  6. Sports + foodie= very goodluck health lifestyle! I’m not a playing sports hoWever tennis is good sport! 🙂🙂

  7. The one thing that stuck out to me is the fact that it’s a non-stock, non-profit organization. I think those two things coupled together facilitate world peace in a whole different way. It might be only a fraction of world peace, but still — it’s impressive. I wish other organizations would take note and follow suit.

  8. It’s nice to hear this news, Tennis lovers are really jovial now, I could imagine. But it would be a good relationship between France and the Philippines.

  9. I’ve always wanted to attend a lively tennis match or tournament! They can be so intense just watching from television; I bet they are awesome in person!
