Building Bridges

On August 5, 2012, the first ever Acquaintance Party by the new student organization under the Computer Science Department, the Dynamic Communication Society, was held. Coincidentally, it was the first party at the beach – Maribago Bluewater Resort.

surf board decor. appropriate for the beach, eh?
Photowall with the party’s theme…

The theme was Bridging the Gap under the Sun, hence, the title of this post. 🙂

as the festivities were held on a Sunday, a mass was held for everyone who attended 🙂
During the tug of war game… 

the sandcastle making contest. the HIMYM song by Robin Sparkles comes to mind. LOL
some of the members of the blue team who participated in the games 🙂
student bands were featured too 🙂
oodles of prizes were given. mr & miss “head turner” were chosen. 🙂

The party-goers had a great time, right? Looked like they had fun.

Anyhoo, i was part of the team that organized the whole shindig. 🙂

the council with smiles on their faces preparing for a long night of prepping ahead. 🙂

The whole Dynacom Council planned the event and made it all possible. Approaching lots of possible sponsors, getting rejected by some, many council meetings (most of which I couldn’t attend teehee), all the worries (of the weather! of traffic! OF MONEY!), one sleepless night and a day of manual labor – it all came to fruition. (As wrote the previous sentence, I thought “hmm. It became a  yummy fruit salad.” corny, much?)

some of the officers, including myself, joining in on the fun 🙂 notice the matching shirts.
it’s not obvious that we only had a little amount of sleep the night prior, right?

Many things did not go as planned, the specifics of the venue, the flow of the program, the late arrivals… I will not share much of it because i think they weren’t glaringly obvious to the people who attended.

the only solo picture of me from the party. 😦 oh, well.

By the end of the day, I just couldn’t take it anymore. With no sleep at all from the night before, I was finding it hard to walk around near the end. 😦 So, I got on the bus & went home earlier than the other officers… only to go to Handuraw and have an “after party” with some friends. I could never refuse free pizza!

Handuraw Special 🙂
after party 🙂 don’t i look sleepy?

Despite the stress, it was all worth it. When I read all the feedback from the students part of the organization, I was overwhelmed. They had fun. They had a wonderful time. The day was a success! Hopefully, the rest of the events in store for the organization will receive the same reaction, too. *crosses fingers*

*aside from mine, the photos are grabbed from the cameras of Kevin Abad, Cherry Paca, Cyra Gadrinab and Micah Borromeo.
