ang kagila-gilalas at di malilimutang olps linggo ng wika, august 1986

BACKGROUNDER: August 1986, traditional linggo ng wika celebrations nationwide and maski sa seminaryo man. that year, the batch (now 4th year) decided to divide themselves into groups to help the younger batches come up with their own presentations during the culminating night. naubos na ata an inspiration and concepts, because when it came time to do their own number, wara na maisip an batch '87. since the motif of the program was 'pista sa nayon,' the class decided to go wild by doing the one thing na kulang sa okasyon: drum and bugle corps. an props: samhod, tamong, tuwalya, payong, whatever. the result: the one linggo ng wika the seminary will never forget -- even if it would wish to, hehe.

preparing for the start of 'pista sa nayon' parade from the back of the study hall. almost everybody was in costume, because each class had its own prepared number in the program. that left the faculty and some guests as the lucky spectators. :)

HAHAHA! me tatalo pa ba sa picture na itu? henry (now the olps college rector!) as majorette, with gary boy, ian (na naka-earring pa!) and ojee as assistants. si mrs. decano and ma'am nikki halcon on the left, ngiritunon!

hala, iwasiwas an samhod na baton! si joven as miss luzon, me bitbit pa na banga and escorted by gerald.

supugonon si jong nan linuz -- too late!

atchempre me patimpalak ng kagandahan din! eto grand entrance ng miss mindanao, dandy labitag (na ngayon ay isa nang kapita-pitagang pari!), escorted by cho coronel, na bigla na lang sumulpot naka-costume na, nyehehe. hilinga baya expression sa bayhon ni fr. jeffrey sa right. :)

beauty contest proper -- joven as miss luzon, chito as miss visayas and dandy as miss mindanao. si paulo n glenn ang hosts. can't remember the questions na, but they must have sounded like this: host -- 'so ms. so-n-so, why did u join this contest?' candidate -- 'me? join this contest? why did i? thank you!'

kalandi kan mga 'singkil' dancers! ojee, gerald and leo on the left, ian, glenn and paulo on the right. an mga tamong hinuram kay fr. gerry. :) this was on a 'paligsahan' night before the culminating program.

mwahahahaha, si ian naka-backless palan!

yaHOO! si gary boy ang hari, si chito ang reyna -- both also wrapped in kumot and tuwalya! bow!

(MORE pang-blackmail pics still to come! nyahaha -- evil laugh :))

I can still vividly remember how hard I howled and laughed on that evening, pleasantly surprised at the guts and boldness of a communal effort, underscoring a strong desire for 'freedom of expression,' regardless what or how ... as "identity" arises from a hilarious and seemingly chaotic fashion. Ah, youth! I was and still am so proud of you guys.

I propose a batch 87 project: a total reconstruction of the OLPS study hall to be a real Hall for Theatre, Arts and Culture. Kaya?

mayad ngani kay may kalintura ako san final night, kun dili, may kadimalasan kunta na nangyari, like, nag cave -in an study hall, tapos headline : Mga Seminarista, Nagladlad, Hall, Gumuho! (Nagalit ang Diyos?...Bwahaha! Pero diputa talaga kay my fever ako, lain ko ini nakita na kababuyan, haha! I missed one half of my OLPS life!

Sukat san practice, si gibbs an may sakit, ako an nanganaan. Siya lugod an nakakita sadi na once-in-a-lifetime event.... Pero nababati ko sa infirmary an haragalpakan san ngirit... Uritonon baga si Paquito, nag walk -out! (Siguro nagpasimple, nagparangarakngak man sa kwarto niya, Bwahaha!)

Matindi ina na baul mo gibbs, pandora's box ba yan o baul ni Mang Serapio?
