A Wonderful Experience Like No Other

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We used to celebrate Pistang Pinoy every year in our school, Pasig City Science School. Filipinos are considering the month of August as the Filipino Month. Pistang Pinoy is a traditional event that shows the culture of Filipino people here in the Philippines. Each section exert and effort in decorating their classrooms. The banquet or the so called “handaan” is the main highlight of the event. Each section prepared the traditional foods of the Filipinos and some of these foods can only be taste here in the Philippines. In my four years of celebrating this event in our school, this might be the best.

This celebration of the Filipino Month is not only about the banquet. The Filipino Department also prepared contests for the students like Maunawang Pagbasa, Malikhaing Awit, Masining na Pagkukuwento, Talumpatian, Balagtasan, and Basag/Pick-up Lines. Each section has its own representatives for each contest except for the Malikhaing Awit because this contest is for the whole section. Unfortunately, our section wasn’t able to win this contest, IV-Lewis won this contest and I’m really happy for them. On the other hand, our representatives in Balagtasan which are Julius Santos, Leira Tolentino, and Cherry Paramio got the first place and I’m really proud of them. They did a really good job. Our section also got the first place in the contest of Pamilyang Pinoy.

This is the very first time that our batch united in celebrating this event. All of us contributed to rent a sorbestes cart for our batch. This sorbetes cart can only be found here in the Philippines. We also had some games, led by the SSG officers, in each section can participate.  Even though the ice cream is for the whole batch, each section also has its own foods. One of my classmates brought some banana leaves. Some of us, including our adviser, chose to eat the foods in banana leaves together and they called that as boodle fight while the others chose to eat in a normal way, eating in the paper plate.

This is one of the most unforgettable days in my life. I will definitely treasure these memories until my breath runs dry. I’m really thankful for those people who made this event so successful and memorable. I’m so happy to be part of this event. Although this will be the last time that we’re going to celebrate this kind of event with one another, I won’t regret anything.  For me, this is a wonderful experience like no other.
