Eksenang Agu! The Villa Antonina Edition

By Binibining Bangs


Haym back! Syempre, (Pantene!) dahil katatapos lang ng isang uber sa bonggang-bonggang to the max ibang level na talaga ito na semstarter, kailangan i-share ko sa inyo ang mga kahindik-hindik at katawa-tawang pangyayari na nangyayari lamang kapag nagkaka-sama-sama ang mga members within a few square meters of each other, hehe!

You know the drill, hulaan portion na naman tayo sa mga blind items! Hala!

Da who itong mem-boy na nag-fieldtrip sa kama habang matulog?! So he was sleeping with the rest of the boys in their room. Noong una ay okay pa sana dahil kaunti pa lang silang humihilik at natutulog. Pero nang napasarap na ang pagtulog nitong mem-boy, aba, aba, aba, ‘gewa na ing lub na!’ ika nga. Palipat-lipat at papalit-palit lang naman siya ng posisyon sa pagtulog. Kebs lang siya sa mga katabi niya dahil ginawa pa niyang mga unan ang mga ito, haha! Well, we can’t blame him din naman dahil na-hoard ng 2 other mem-boys ang 2 and only unan sa room. So ayun, may-I-improvise itong si mem-boy at ginawa na lamang unan ang bilbil sa tiyan ng katabing mem-boy, haha!

Da who itong mem-boy na kawawang nasipa-sipa ng isa pang mem-boy sa ulo habang natutulog sa tuwing may-I-turn-over-my-current-position-tuwing-malilingat-ako?! Medyo irregular kasi ang arrangement sa bed na mga mem-boys kaya kaya naman prone talaga sa accidental pambubugbog ang mga itech. Pobreng mem-boy, nagka-amnesia yata siya dahil hindi niya maalala na ginawa siyang soccer ball habang natutulog, haha!

Da who itong mem-boy na wala daw ‘balls’ dahil scared mag-slide sa swimming pool?! Actually dalawa talaga sila na ‘no-balls’. Ngunit nang i-dare nila ang isa’t isa, isa lang sa kanila ang natinag at umakyat sa matarok na slide with the rest of the boys with matching ‘when was the last time you did something outrageous’ pang statement na nalalaman! As expected, huling umi-slide ang naturang mem-boy dahil matagal-tagal rin siyang umipon ng powers at lakas ng loob. Mabuti nga’t hindi nasira ang concrete slide dahil sa lakas ng dagundong ng pag-bounce ng isa pang mem-boy sa slide!

Da who itong mem-boy na tila yata may repressed anger dahil kahit mga girls ay hindi sinanto sa water touching ball!? Batakan kung batakan ang drama ng lolo niyo! Nasapul ang isang mem-girl sa back area at na-bull’s-eye naman sa mukha ang isang mem-boy. Well, sa ‘laki’ ba naman ng mem-girl at mem-boy, malaki talaga ang probabilidad na tamaan sila, ano? Bwahaha! Pero kailangan talaga ganun kalakas?! Antigas pa naman nung plastic ball and not to mention, puno ito ng tubig nang dumapo sa laman ng mga mems, haha!

Da who itang mem-girl na bigla na lang in-unleash ang kanyang inner bitch out of nowhere?? Pinagmamalaki kasi ng isang mem-boy ang cleavage ng na-create ng kanyang hairy man-boobs. Nabigla na lang ang lahat nang biglang binulalas nitong mem-girl: “Ha, ha, ha, funny, funny, funny!” Oha, winner ang lola na akala nating lahat ay demure forever!

Da who itong mem-boy na dumating lang sa ating bonggang-bonggang semstarter hindi para mag-swimming kundi maglaro lamang ng Monopoly?! Hindi na nga siya dumating ng FR, uber late pa nang um-arrive sa Antonina. O dava, VIP ang drama! Haha! Nagbayad pa naman siya ng overnight fee sa gate at nagdala naman ng kanyang swimming attire ngunit subalit datapwat, nakuntento na lamang ito sa pagbabaraha at paglalaro ng game board. Bakit kaya? Siguro dayang-dayang (papilit pang papilit) ang lolo niyo? Eh baka naman walang namilit? Haha! Hindi man niya nasulit ang overnight fee, dahil hindi naman siya nakatulog dahil wala na rin naman siyang pwesto kaya naman maaga na rin siyang umuwi! Huhu, poor, poor, lonely boy.

Da who itong mem-girl na she works hard for the money ang drama?! Late siyang dumating sa whole-day affair dahil may tutor-shift siya. Kasama siya sa mga (engot) na mas piniling maglaro ng Monopoly magdamag kaysa matulog. Habang ang iba ay maagang umuwi para sa bahay na lang magsi-tulog, itong si mem-girl ay may tutor shift pa daw! Whoa! Kaya pala medyo tumaba ang hitsura niya – lumaki ang eyebags niya! Haha! Sige ka, mem-girl, hindi ka na lalaki niyan!

Da who itong mem-boys and mem-girls na back to the 90s ang drama? Pinerform lang naman nila sa videokehan ang mga kantang that defined the boy-band and girl-band bubblegum pop era – As Long As You Love Me by the Backstreet Boys and Stop by the Spice Girls! Talk about showing your true jologs colors, haha! Dahil co-ed, ayun nagmistulang S Club 7 ang mga kachokaran. Take note, with matching choreo pa ang mga ate at kuya!



Da who itong mem-boy na grabe, napapa-Tagalog pala kapag namamangha? Habang nagkukwentuhan ang mga mem-boys tungkol sa glory days (or lack thereof) ng kanilang high school life, bigla na lang um-exclaim ang naturang mem-boy: “Grabe! Napacalaci ng manoc! Sobra!” Kamusta naman at napatingin na lang ang mga kakwentuhan at nagtawanan sa nangyaring pag-sapi ng kaluluwa ni Balagtas sa naturang mem-boy! Bwahaha! True enough, malaki nga naman ang manok. Pero kailangan talaga Tagalog?! Haha!

So there you go for your latest bonggang-bonggang juice from the misadventures of your favorite (and mystery) members. So ano, hindi ka pa ba nag-sisi na hindi ka pumunta?!

Aguman welcomes the new academic year with 2 new members and a swimming SemStarter

By Amateur Pâtissier


Agyuan 2007B Final Rites & Induction
UP Aguman started the new academic year by officially inducting two new members, Carmelo Cortez and Demsen Cosio of batch Agyuan 2007B. The original date of the FR was last March, but due to some cancellation of classes towards the end of the semester, it did not push through. Their Final Rites was held in the morning of May 31 at a family farm at Dayat, Bacolor. The FR venue is owned by an uncle of member Kevin Peñalba and alumnus Mike Peñalba which was attended by 11 members and officers. Their batch Induction was also held later in the evening during the swimming semstarter at the Villa Antonina Resort at Panipuan, City of San Fernando, where more members arrived to participate in the activity.



SemStarter 2008
The incoming officers with the assistance of some former officers organized the semstarter for the new academic year 2008-2007. The food for the overnight activity were sponsored by Kevin (fried chicken), Acey (grilled bangus with tomatoes & eggplant), Cyrille (baked spaghetti), Rex (cheesecakes), Justin & Buduy (chips and other snacks), Marco & Jen (rice, grilled chicken and additional snacks drinks) and Carlo & Demsen (drinks).



Aside from the games in the swimming pool, members also brought playing cards and board games (Monopoly) to keep everyone busy in having fun the whole night. The officers also prepared a variation of the M&M Game, the same group dynamic game held in the youth camp that the officers participated in. Instead of giving out facts about oneself, the members had to enumerate facts about the member next to them. New alumni members Daph Villanueva and Cyrille Bautista grace the semstarter as well.

Indeed, the overnight Extreme Bonding Session (EBS) was a great way to jumpstart the new school year and to rekindle the bond between the members as they face new academic trials and more organization projects.

Aguman officers hold a talk for youth camp participants

By pekepate


May 24, 2008 – In response to the invitation made by the Bayung Abak Foundation for its program dubbed “San Marcelo Youth Leadership Training Camp”, four Executive Council Members, Jenifer Castro (President), Acey Duarte (Internals Vice-President), Aries Viray (Externals Vice-President) and Jeremiah Torrico (Socio Cultural Committee Chairperson) represented UP Aguman and gave a talk about the role of youth in the community to an audience of young people from Angeles City. It was held at Hotel Pat’il Resort, San Antonio Zambales last May 18-24.


The said event was a seven-day camp devised by the Bayung Abak Foundation for the youth of Angeles City, Pampanga. The camp was attended by 24 young people. They were selected from different barangays, specifically from families lying below the poverty line and those considered as problem children.


The Aguman officers, who were first to give the talk on the last day, were accompanied by four other speakers – three guidance counselors and a college dean from Holy Angel University. They arrived at about 10am at the venue and started at 10:45am after some technical difficulty.


The outline of the Aguman’s talk was as follows:

Presentation of speakers and of UP Aguman
Group Dynamics # 1: Nips Game
The delegates were asked to get as much as Nips as they wanted. The number of pieces each individual got corresponded to the number of things s/he would have to say about her/himself.
Talk: An overview about the youth (by Jen)
Statistics about the situation of youth in the world and in the Philippines were presented to the delegates.
Group Dynamics # 2: Helium Rod Game
The delegates were divided into three groups and asked to form two lines facing each other. They held a long thin rod with their index fingers. The goal of the game was to lower the rod to the ground as fast as possible. The activity aimed to strengthen their team work and to bridge the communication gap amongst them.

Other talks: Youth Health Status and Health Related Behavior (by Aries)
Youth Health Indicators and Related Issues (by Acey)
Youth Mortality Issues and Reproductive Health Issues (by Jer)
Substance Abuse Issues (by Aries)
Youth Violence (by Acey)
Importance of Youth in the Community (by Jen)
Group Dynamics # 3: ‘Write something about each other”
The delegates were asked to write their name on a piece of paper which they had to pass around. Then, as the papers rotated amongst them, they were asked to write something about the owner of the paper. The activity served to provide a remembrance of the bonding that the participants formed for the past 6 days and to have something they can look on to during the times when they are down.
Open Forum
Some delegates asked about UP Aguman and for some words of encouragements. Others also gave rants on certain matters.
Closing Remarks
Each of the four UP Aguman officers delivered some final words of wisdom to the delegates.

After the talk, the Aguman officers were given time to rest and stroll around the beach and resort to enjoy the beautiful Zambales scenery. The Bayung Abak Foundation provided the transportation to and from Zambales for the Aguman officers for the whole-day affair.
