When Maggie Wilson-Consunji moved from Saudi Arabia to Manila, she was surprised to discover that here, hanging out at homes wasn’t so common. “When I first got here, it wasn’t really a thing. I could know someone for five years but never see the inside of their house, which I found very strange,” she muses. “I grew up going to my parents’ friends’ houses for barbeques, having lunches and dinners. So I sort of brought that with me.”
She loves having friends over. More often than not, her guests are her gal pals. Once in a while, her husband Victor Consunji’s training buddies meet up in their home for a swim or workout.
