February 14, 2006. How was the first ever Mr. & Ms. UP competition? It was fine. Ayeen and I didn’t win, but it’s all right. There was an inevitable feeling of loss the first few hours after the winners were announced, but it wore off the next day. We did just start preparing two days before, so no heavy investment there. There were only seven orgs who sent representatives, so it was a pretty small competition. Thank you to our orgmates who went there despite short notice! And to my CAST orgmates who went and cheered despite me representing MCO instead of CAST. I appreciate it.
