To See the World in a Grain of Sand
The general rule in writing about events has always been “Record everything that your memory best serves you.”
But as of Saturday night, UP JMA Adhoc: Eternity in an Hour seemed to have left me so intoxicated that I barely remembered anything. Held at the World Trade Centre, the event that takes place every semester and has been forever anticipated, virtually warped time and made me and everyone else wish that the party could’ve lasted, yes, forever.
At a wholesome Saturday evening, I arrived at the place with JJ and Soo-young and initially bonded with my orgmates before we all get pretty foolish and whatever comes with it. At nine, I helped man the ticket booth plainly welcoming people and telling them to enjoy the night like what I did last year.
And just about eleven, when flair performers, ledge dancers and chillax music entered the scene, I already transformed me tipsy. I was transferring and grooving from clique to clique, including forever-party-buddies Stef and Nick, and the CMC crowd composed of Bia, Nigel, B-an, Jacques, Claire, and Karol Yee to name a few.
As the midnight transgressed, everyone else went zany until the wildest of details materialized. Not to mention, I was apparently the most smashed child in the gang such that people were already freakishly teasing me to make out with God-knows-who.
Sad to blog but aside from the stool dancing, bottomed-up alcohol, and crazy music by DJ Gillette and DJ Henzel, I wish I could elaborate more. Of course, you didn’t just assume I remembered nothing, did you? Cos I’m telling you, the Adhoc EFFECt is still in my veins. The experience, some personally done for first time, is never gonna leave my senses. The love is here: In the Biggest Ever College Party in the Metro.
PS Congratulations to my friends, the UP JMA Ad Hoc Team chairs Lour Miller and Katie Li! I will always love you both for this!
