I went to this UBE thing last November 15, again expecting (and failing) to get free ube jam (and also failing at this corny joke BTW). Last time I went to a similar event, it was like a Talentadong Pinoy free-for-all. This time they decided to make things… uh… romantic. Heck, they even had a playlist straight out of my pang-romansa DOM uncle’s iPod for background music. You know, “Careless Whisper” and other stuff.
And again, I was late, but this time I had to break a horcrux before going. No, actually I came from a photoshoot and a business meeting and dancing with Hermoine cause she’s alone (hirap maging sikat, whew) before going to the UBE and getting surprised with what I saw as I enter. I thought I saw two guys trying to kiss lips-to-lips while this (bit too) perky emcee eggs them on. Yun pala, they’re eating a Pocky biscuit between them, and the catch is that whoever pair ends up with the shortest biscuit left would win. The shortest Pocky apparently came from a (real-life?) couple, with only 0.6 cm of biscuit left. I was like inggit wow so they did kiss?
Then the emcee wanted us to form groups of seven. Next game was card relay where we pass playing cards to the next teammate using our lips. Of course I placed myself in the most convenient position: in between cute girls at the back. Well, the cards never reached my way, and needless to say, the other group won. Napaghahalata kung sino yung mga sanay na…
Then the next game was something about melting ice using you and your partner’s hands. I kinda forgot what happened, except that one couple allegedly melted the ice even before we get to melt just half of ours. And so the UBE ended, quite anti-climactic. It didn’t help that there wasn’t so many of us there, as I can attest na maraming kasabay yung event. But I can say na malas lang nung mga di nagpunta dito, they didn’t get to enjoy a good kinky bonding experience.
And oh, as we were cleaning up the place, there was this fat semi-kal guy who kept on promoting this event he called Singkwenta. He said that it’s an alumni homecoming event and a Christmas party and more. He sounded kinda too eager and enthusiastic, but in fairness, I got what he said and maybe I’ll go to that event’s volunteer GA, and of course sa event na rin. For short, nadaan ako sa salestalk…
Things are really picking up in AEA eh?
(Up next: About this volunteers’ GA thing. Nadaan ako sa salestalk, pero OK naman ba talaga yung Singkwenta na yan? And wait, alumni homecoming di ba, so they’re gonna invite Noynoy?)
