asLOVE dinner

February 24, 2011

Last night, some of my ASLA batchmates and I went to Cam Ang’s mansion for a simple yet fun-filled get-together. I thought I’d be super mega early…thankfully not! Β The early birds who were there were Martin, Weanne, Billie and Esa! Martin, pimpin’ haha!

We decided to set up the stuff already so CamAng brought out her extension cord socket thingy and we kept on poking fun at it! We had a fun time trying to further extend it because apparently it could be as long as 4 times the size of CamAng. Haha!

More people started to arrive (Tim, Lauren, Rica, Cheska, Matt). More food arrived as well!

Esa finally got her rice that night! Haha!

We started eating after. First thing we devoured was pizza and finally! I’m in a group shot! haha!

While having dinner we were just sharing ghost stories. Odd topic for a get-together but it was still amusing! To be honest, I was so paranoid the whole time when I got home. Haha! Elijah arrived after some time.

Bigger group shots which Elijah took. Jolo wasn’t there yet that time so he’s not in any of the pictures 😦

let’s have a more complete one next time, yes? πŸ™‚ See you guys around!

Speeches. Platforms. and some Questions.

Ever since High School this time of the school year would always be one of my most anticipated ones (not counting the breaks, of course!) This time of the year would always be filled with discernment and surprises. It’s always nice to see people stepping up but it’s also nice to see people to step down to give opportunities for others.

Yesterday, we had our annual Miting de Avance where the 19 EB candidates presented their platforms and answered some mild, tough and very tough questions by the panel comprised of the incumbent EB (seniors and those not running: Roshni, Fara and I). We started at 4:30 and the presentations began!

Pre Miting de Avance Photos:

JonnDy and Froi! Two of my favorite MEAns! Congratulations for the successful elections!

Bien and MattLee, 2 of the many other ASLAns running for position. Apparently, the ACheS Miting de Avance was just on the room before us!

Miting de Avance time!

Fara and Mindy representing the CorRel Department!

Katz and Mon. Supposed to be a candid shot but Mon saw the camera…well how can you not notice a dSLR if it’s just 4 rulers away from you? Haha!

And now, the 19 EB Candidates!

JR and Isay were the first ones to face the Open Forum!

Krista, Liz, Dawn, Benny, Katie, Angel, Derrick, Ranamae.

Gayle, Gelo, Xea, Jonan, Mia, Ja, Bien, Al, Rem.


Paolo with his notebook filled with questions from cover to cover! Haha! Well not really, he just didn’t ran out of things to ask.

Despite the fact that the Miting de Avance was around 4 1/2 hours (4:30-9:00 PM), I can say that everything was worth it. Almost 2 1/2 hours of questions and answers. Some things were cleared up yet some things were left as is because of the lack of time. And I hope that the intense questions helped the candidates be more truly aware of the positions they’re running for. Hopefully πŸ™‚ So best of luck to all the candidates and to those who will not be elected, I hope that you will not lose passion in serving and leading the organization and its members.

 

And to end this post, I wish to impart you something I learned over the SemBreak:

“God calls you to the place where your DEEPEST GLADNESS and the world’s GREATEST HUNGER meet”

ASLA Party

January 08, 2011

Last Saturday we had an ASLA Party at JQ’s house. It was really cool because there were ASLAns from all batches present; from ASLA 0 to ASLA 9 (woohoo!)!

I was semi-happy that NSTP finished early because kids didn’t show up. I was able to rest and finish some requirements early which I can say is good because I had to go to the party! Around 6PM, my mom and I left the house and went to the venue of the party. We kinda got lost, a bit. Not really surprised since mom is not familiar with the place and I have poor navigation skills. After some time I finally arrived and was very happy I wasn’t the early bird!

Weanne, Jethro, Martin were the 3 early birds from batch 9

We went to the food table and we started eating A LOT of isaw. Funny that Jethro didn’t think twice eating isaw considering it was his first time! Well, usually when I’m with my friends who haven’t eaten isaw and it’s their first time, they’ll hesitate and all pa. Jethro didn’t!

First isaw stick in his whole life!

More ASLAns came and the party started. A lot of fun stuff happened like Weanne’s bad luck burning a table

The older batches also vacated the swings so we carpe diem’d and went to the swings!

Yay for swings! Obviously I didn’t take the picture. Haha! Credits to Jolo! πŸ™‚ Oh and the girl I’m hugging isn’t my girlfriend. Just making that clear. haha! She’s Angelli! She’s one of my closest friends in ASLA. I get to talk to her about anything and everything. Yay for Angelli! \:D/

Oh and I noticed something. Why do people like sticking their tongues out when they want to do a wacky face? Hahaha! Well, I am guilty naman. Haha!

Misha came and since my friends love being photographed and I had a camera, decided to take a picture of them! Hahaha!

Then Myki, Billie, Tim and Matt finally arrived so we had another group pic! Actually this is the most complete group pic of ASLA 9 who went to the party… well Jolo left so 😐 and Cam Ang arrived later 😐

Finally a picture with Cam Ang! But like less people.Β oh and as much as I would love to credit whoever took our group photos, I can’t remember who did…if I even know who the person is, even! haha!

Well it was a great party and super fun. I saw like a lot of ASLAns I never saw in my whole life. ALSO, first time to taste Bacardi 151. One word: LAKAS. Some memorable stuff happened too, but I shall keep them out of the public’s eye. πŸ˜‰ Haha! Well, till next time!
