I attended a Luzon-wide KASAMA sa UP (Kasapian ng mga Sangguniang Mag-aaral sa UP) Congress in Baguio this weekend. It was my first time in Baguio in more than five years. It was also my first time to attend a KASAMA sa UP assembly (though attendance was limited to representatives from the five UP units in Luzon; Diliman, Manila, Los Banos, Pampanga, Baguio).
Interesting that I finally get to attend a KASAMA sa UP assembly when I’m no longer a member of the Mass Comm Student Council (which is a member of the alliance). I came as a representative of STAND-UP, with my colleague Che.
We left Manila late Friday night, after attending Hiyas ng Arki, a male cross-dress pageant (similar to Miss Eng’g) in the College of Architecture, where oddly, I was invited to be one of the judges. Anyway, we arrived in Baguio early morning of Saturday. I’ll write about the rest of my thoughts and chronicles in another entry.
