Appreciating free things

YOUTH RALLY, BANGON KABATAAN VOLUNTEERS, HUMAN CHAIN

I just got home from Luneta Park. I was assigned as a Production Assistant for the Prayer Rally and concert for  change.  Other than taking photos and videos, i always wanted to be a part of an Event’s management crew. Our call time was 8 in the morning but i arrived by 10AM.  Blockings, orientation and rehearsals were executed under the scorching and blackening heat of the Sun.

Weird right? Yes it is.

Two down! Dalawa na ang Graduate sa Pamilya namin. Last February lang, bumalik na naman kami sa PICC at umupo sa taas. Di gaya nung October, mas kokonti ang tao, kasama na namin si Dadi, alam ko na ang pasikot sikot ng PICC at panganay namin ang gragraduate.
