Well, it's Christmas time in U.P.-Diliman! People studying and living around the area annually anticipate the Lantern Parade and the Oblation Run. But for the past couple of years, the U.P. Administration has added an additional event: the Belen Contest. The contest is participated by the different local college councils in campus. For this year, Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs, Ma'am Betsy Enriquez wanted former USC officers to judge the contest. I was one of those chosen.
So, I went last Friday and met my fellow judges. Percy Cendana (USC Chairman '97-'98) and Mariz Umali (USC Councilor '98-'99). Nagkita-kita kami sa OVSCA and Ma'am Betsy's GA, Brian, brought us around campus. Of the 25 colleges and schools, only 14 student councils were able to participate. I forgot the exact theme of the contest, but I remember it was about Likhaing Pinoy. Most of the belens used recycled materials. Some had were good. Some looked plain. And there were some na okay siguro on paper pero pumalpak sa execution.
Here are some pictures:

It was nice to visit my alma mater again.
Maligayang Pasko, U.P.!
