I’ll also be starting up the NewsFLASH posts again soon. Gotta stay updated with all the events back home, right?
Have a good one!
News FLASH 1:
News FLASH will be a weekly recap of important news in the Philippines to keep everyone updated with news from the homeland. It’s going to consist of quick summaries and a link to the article. Remember, you can leave questions in our ask box, we’ll be happy to answer as best as we can.
Article 1: Ferry Crash near Cebu City
The MV Thomas Aquinas was en route to Cebu City when it collided with a cargo ship, damaging the Aquinas’ hull and causing it to turn on its side and begin to sink. High numbers of casualties and missing passengers reported.
Article 2&3: Tropical Storm Trami currently moving through Metro Manila and other provinces.
Severe flooding occurring; financial markets shut down for the duration of this storm.
Article 4: “Little Manila” open and supported by Seoul’s mayor.
The mayor of Seoul has expressed his support for “Little Manila”, a Pinoy-popular market set up by Filipinos that has attracted many visitors, with numbers reaching 2,000 visitors on Sundays.
Forgot that FLASH has a tumblr? Probably not, but if you have, then allow this to be your refresher.
FLASH is back on tumblr.
I’m Brian, FLASH’s
webmaster Social Media Director. That’s right, we renamed the position. Anyway, I just wanna take this opportunity to let you guys know that this blog is back up and running and it’s been visually updated. The blog’s got a whole new look and a little music playlist to accompany your journey through it.
The content’s probably the same as the last time you looked on this blog, (by the looks of things, its last update was a year ago) but after today, expect a lot of great new things to be coming from this blog. Event updates and pictures, news articles, and submissions! If you’ve got something you want FLASH to share with their followers, submit it to us. Just click on the link on our blog and send it right to us!
So that’s about all I have to say for now. Send us any questions you have to the ask box.
FLASH Semi-Formal is well on its way!
The festivities begin at 8:00 PM and end at 12:00 AM at the Best Western Regency House Hotel in Pompton Plains, NJ.
Note about the bar: cash bar opens at 8:00 and open bar begins at 9:30 and ends at 11:00.
I’ve got a fun little contest I just made up now. I hope this will work out well, because I’m just assuming more than 5 people read this:
Trivia question: These plants, native to hot, dry regions of the U.S. and Mexico, are grown for ornament, fiber, and food, but more famously, as the main ingredient of tequila. What are they?
The first 5 people to find me tomorrow night (and introduce themselves if we haven’t met before), tell me an interesting fact about themselves, and correctly answer this question will win…the pleasure of seeing/meeting me.
Just kidding, I’ll get you a drink at the bar…anytime between 9:30 and 11:00 PM (hey, don’t call me cheap, open bar still means you have to tip the bartender, so I’ll pay for tips!). Please don’t be obnoxious, run up to me, and yell the answer in my face because I have the right to refuse getting a drink for you if you happen to be a jerk. Genuinely pleasant people only apply.
I will also include a post on the FLASH Tumblr about the 5 winners and their facts. It’ll be cool! Maybe!
Come looking your best and ready to eat, drink, and dance! Hope to see your wonderful faces there!
