Oragon, a Bicolano slang for somebody who is described to be as feisty, determined, unafraid of consequences, fighter and someone who stands up for his principles. These words are to describe what will be the (delegates to) UAPSA Area B Assembly.
The Annual Area Assembly organized by UAPSA (United Architects of the Philippines – Student Auxiliary) for over many years is one of the events where architecture students (especially UAPSA members) have been waiting for every half year. This is the gathering of Architecture students, particularly UAPSA members, with their co-Area universities every October. (depending where their school is located at — so for us UST, we’re located at Area B.) With Area B, we gather with Greater Manila schools (FEU, MLQU, MIT, CSB, etc.,) and Southern Luzon schools (CVSU, BatSU, Bicol State., etc.).
For this year, entitled Oragon, the Area B Assembly was located in Aguirangan Island, Presentacion and Caramoan in Camarines Sur in Bicol for 3-days, 2-nights, from October 25-27, 2012.
UAPSA-UST had 28 delegates for this assembly. Awesome bonding with the chapter delegates.
This assembly was such an adventure.
We tried almost all death defying kinds of transportation in the duration of this event — 10-hour bus ride with the typhoon waiting for us in Bicol and during the course of the ride, we have witnessed 5 road accidents, rough road trip in a jeepney and boat rides (the last boat ride we had was the most scary because it was already dark and we thought the boat is already overloaded thinking that we might sink. :|).
The island hopping with breathtaking sceneries.
Mr. & Ms. UAPSA.
We played with the electric candle lights, and then we got attention with it. :))
Vince, Egbert and I joined the Structural Making Competition. And fortunately, we won the 1st place. Good job team! And of course, thank you! 😀
During the competition.
We event met our blockmate, Ariel Raquitico, in our stop over in Naga.
Window Chatting with UAPSA-BatSU
This is probably the best adventure in an assembly we had so far.
Until the next assembly & congress! 🙂
