I love reunions; those recollections of pleasant (and even not-so-pleasant) remembrances among families, friends, colleagues, acquaintances. Some are fun, as you get to be acquainted again with the lives and stories of your loved ones; while some were staged to attend and address an impending adversity.
The latter is what happened last May 4, on the roofdeck of Prestige Tower, Ortigas Center. After more or less a year, the alumni of PALS-NCPAG was again called upon, not only for a night of merriment or overflowing of booze, but more importantly, for an emergency party.
I would not go into the details of what transpired during that night. It would take hours for me to write about it and not to mention, a lot of airspace.
But for an overview, it was a crisis meeting disguised as a party. The good thing about it though, that once the ‘agenda’ was unveiled, nobody bailed out and still put their game-faces on. Questions like “Why PALS?,” “Why do you think should PALS continue to exist in the college, in the university?,” and “What do we do about it” were posed to those present during the party, especially the residents.
The night was also paved way for the institutionalization of PALS Alumni Association. With the products of PALS since time immemorial (chos!), we can very well establish our own non-stock, nonprofit foundation. PALS AA is the continuance of the passion, angas and the love of the then, now and would-be members of PALS-NCPAG.
Ok. So a lot has been said and more to be done. Let this photos give you a glimpse on how much we love PALS.
