GD Acquaintance Party

Posted on July 9, 2008 at 20:51 Down the Drain

This year’s theme for the program was ABS-CBN’s “The Singing Bee”. The hosts were last year’s Lakan and Lakambini (Mr. and Ms. Dorm) and quite similar to as how the show proceeds, they sang lines of songs leaving out some words blank to be answered by those whom they’ll point their mic to. Basically, they merely left a single word to be guessed. 😯 :sweat: 😆 They then played Wowowee’s “Hep-Hep-Hurray!” in order to choose the winner. :cheerful: The presentations of the new residents followed subsequently.

People were yelling and cheering all throughout. I’ve come to realize recently that there will always be something one can get — entertainment — in every acquaintance party. It only takes the guts to attend. The snack — hotdog and marshmallows on stick, sandwich, bihon, and iced tea — was not as, uh, enjoyable as the previous years, I’d say. *shrugs* Maybe the House Council should really be headed by a senior. It was only during last year (our junior year) in which no senior ran for candidacy. But anyway, I believe things will eventually go with the flow. Ah! I forgot to mention that instead of having dress codes per wing this year, we decided on “profession codes” instead. We were geeky nerds. The others were composed of the dark emos, Sunday dressers, executive forces, and model fashionistas. After the snack was a special number for one of the dormers who recently turned 18 — a little debut party, that is. After a few picture-takings, we left for Omp’s Corner to you-know-what. It was incompletely planned. We went back to the dorm minutes past midnight. I was glad to see that there were still people dancing in the bare lobby (heard the disco lights got broken). From then on, I never rested until 2AM. Got off the bed today at 11.

    Well, acquaintance parties are meant as a get to know each other party to get yourselves familiar with each and everyone. XD

    But, it doesn’t usually work out. XD

    Kind of agree with that. Nonetheless, they’re still fun. 🙂

    I hate Acquaintance Parties, maybe because I’m super anti-social! LOL

    Singing Bee is like one of my faves now!
