The day after the city parade is the traditional D-day of the Founder's Week Celebration. It begins with a morning thanksgiving service at the amphitheater in front of the SU Church. Then there's a breakfast reception for everyone after the Diana Sunrise Service. Batch '78, being a reunioning batch, was one of the sponsors for the food of this morning's university breakfast. However, I doubt if any of us was able to join the Diana and breakfast because, as usual, our previous day ended in the early hours of the next day. The boys particularly had a boys' night out session which lasted until 5 am today. Hmm.
For our girl's spa, I'll tell you more about it when I get back later. Tonight is the Tipon Sillimaniana, the Grand Alumni Homecoming at the SU Quadrangle. It's a big, big university wide party where all the reunioning batches gather together for food, a program and dancing.
Augst 28 is a very important date for Silliman University. It is THE day in Founder's Day. There were a lot of "official" activities in campus today, like the awarding of the Most Outstanding Sillimanian and stuff like that. As for us, we spent the day lounging with some classmates at Bong and Lai's mansion in El Pueblo, where Karen and I helped make the baked prawns in garlic and cheese. Yey! Hehehe. It was a no brainer. Just followed instructions from chief cook, Bong R.
Then in the afternoon we just had to go to Dumaguete landmark Sans Rival for coffee and sweets and raucous stories. Then those of us who were not able to go to the spa last night went for a quick massage at Body and Sole while the rest of us went home to freshen up and prepare for tonight's big event. We're supposed to present a dance number in tonight's program. (!) I don't know if we've mastered it enough to be presentable. Bahala na si Rolito and Susan, our pambato dancers.
So will sign off now, as I've been assigned to go to Basil Tree and order our dinner. :-)
