Walang katapat

Labing-apat, walang katapat

The imagery was almost ironic: men were in a huddle, piecing together various theatrical costumes, pouring glitters onto fabric surfaces coated with glue, and—this is where it gets weirder—enjoying their time, like they were watching an NBA finals game.

I needed to see that scene to make me realize how we've all labored hard—and some labored harder—for this year's Tao Rin Pala. If you have time, do visit Fleur De Lis Auditorium at St. Paul University, right across the street facing the UP College of Medicine. Go there early, around 6:30 5 pm, so you can reserve your seats. Admission is free.

Cheer for Class 2014, too. Our venerable class president Pito shouts, "Labing-apat," after which the entire crowd says, "Walang katapat!" Everyone's so excited I highly doubt if anyone will pay as much attention to the lectures today.

...

Class 2012 won! Their rendition of "Huling Awit" was awesome. It was a sad but hopeful song, dotted with farewells and thanks to their parents, mentors, and patients.

We didn't do so badly either. A classmate got a text from the Med Choir conductor who told her ours was the best performance of a freshman choir he has seen. Coming from someone who has been to countless TRPs, I guess that's something. Congrats, 2014.
