Bihira na akong magsulat ng blog entry in taglish pero hindi ko mapigilan ang sarili ko. Sa tingin ko, sa ganitong paraan ko lang maipapahayag ang tunay kong nararamdaman sa biglaang pagpanaw ng isa sa mga taong naging malaking impluwensya sa buhay ko kahit pa marami ang hindi nakakaalam o nakakaintindi kung bakit ganito siya ka-importante sa akin na naisipan ko pang gumawa ng blog post tungkol sa kanya.

Tara, balik tayo sa taong 1999…
Umuusbong pa lang ang internet noon. Naalala ko pa nga na natuto akong mag-internet dahil may nakita akong website address sa isang Spice Girls memorabilia. Sabi ng kaklase ko, mag-internet daw kami para makakita kami ng maraming pictures ng Spice Girls. Ano nga ba yung internet? Ay, sa kompyuter ‘yun. Maraming nagagawa sa internet pero napakamahal. Sa iskul namin noon, pwede ka gumamit ng napakabagal na dial-up internet sa internet laboratory na makikita sa main library. Php 25 per hour. Bago ka makagamit, kailangan mong pumunta pa sa cashier para magbayad ng itinatawag na ‘internet fee’. Dahil isa akong estudyante na kakarampot lang ang baon, sobrang namamahalan ako. Umabot pa nga sa puntong hindi ako kakain ng ilang araw maipon ko lang yung bente singkong pambayad ko sa isang oras na pagi-internet.
Ang adiksyon ko sa pagi-internet ay lalong lumala (in a good way, i must say) noong isang araw, may isang OJT na naawa sa akin.
Juxtapose and Bangus Ink, two newly-formed groups in Dagupan City recently organized an event called ‘Proud to be Dagupeno’. It is basically a rave party and outdoor photoshoot event. The organizers composed of young and talented Dagupenos aim to promote our city’s tourism by launching cool events such as this one.
Like what I mentioned on my previous blog post prior to the event, I went there mainly to support my friends. I am also curious to see if they can surpass such challenge (majority of the group members are younger than me). Together with a fellow Pangasinan blogger Josh Uy, I went to Venu Bar that Saturday night to witness this event.
I’m currently blogging live from Dagupan City, my beloved hometown. I went here at my original home mainly for an event organized by some people really close to me during the days when I was still a struggling student LOL.
I am PROUD... Are You?
On Saturday, a newly-organized group called ‘Juxtapose’ will be having their first event called ‘Proud to be DagupeÃ±o: Rave Party and Photoshoot for a Cause’. It is a collaboration of photographers, make-up artists, stylists and event organizers who wishes to promote Dagupan City’s tourism through cool events such as this one. This is their first venture and I am quite excited for them!
Most probably you’re wondering why I took the effort to go here for a single party. Let me share why…
