"I gotta feeling... that tonight's gonna be a good night."
This Black Eyed Peas song is applicable for almost every night before my Christmas break. Indeed, the Holiday season is not complete without Christmas parties.
Dec. 13 @ the Medicine Auditorium
All scholars are required to attend this annual event. The theme for this year's Christmas party/ General assembly is Paskolar: Scholars on the Move. We were asked to bring school supplies that we can donate for the children as a part of the Community Development activities.
During the program, we imitated ABS-CBN's Christmas station ID "Star ng Pasko". We held our cellphones up high while singing the song. The program is lively and fun because of the entertaining hosts and the games. It was unfortunate that I was not able to finish the program because I had to leave early.
Dec. 15 @ the Plaza Mayor
Before the mass, we went to Dapitan street to fetch some of our friends who are playing billiards. :)
The Paskuhan Mass is the first day of the 4-day celebration of the countdown to 2011. The mass started late and we were so hungry that after the mass we rushed to our classmates who are holding our food stubs. It is by tradition that there is free food for the students during the Paskuhan. We went to the Shakey's booth because we were expecting some mojos but we were disappointed because the box contains only chicken and garlic bread. Anyway, we had so much fun because we had the chance to get together and forget schoolworks just for one moment.
Section 2-20 Christmas Party
Dec. 16 @ room 311 Eng'g. building
Our class officers organized this Christmas party, together with some of our professors. It was like the usual Christmas parties, with games, food and intermission number.
1-4 (1st year-1st sem) Christmas Party
Dec. 17 @ Aisa's house
This was one of the most memorable Christmas parties I've ever attended. We had the chance to get together, even if we are not all at the same section this semester. We also surprised the birthday celebrants, Kheeme and Flutz and organized a simple debut for them. The night was full of laughter, games and good food.
Dec. 18 @ the UST grandstand
The Paskuhan is the Christmas party of the whole University. The event started with a parade from all the colleges, showing the different eras of the university's quadricentennial existence. The program was hosted by beauty queen Miriam Quiambao, a graduate of Physical Therapy and Kim Atienza, also a graduate of UST from the College of Education. There are also other notable alumni who participated in the program like Archie Aleman, Polo Ravales, Jamie Rivera and many more. The fireworks display started at 12 midnight and marks the start of the 400-day countdown to UST's quadricentennial celebration.
