Last Saturday was the first ever SHRIM Alumni Homecoming and like I said in my earlier entry it was held at the ICC Hotel's Roof Deck. The event was fun, there were a few people from different batches; from the very first batch ID '96 to the recently graduated ID 106, there were representatives for each, some of SHRIM's professors and chefs were also present, regarding the food and drinks; the finger foods were okay although most of us expected more varieties, Iced Tea, water, coffee and the last minute addition of San Miguel Beers (thank God!) were blessings in disguise. I'll stop right here with the critique of the event and focus on my personal emotion. I felt beyond happy during the Homecoming. It was not a formal occasion and thank heavens for it. So anyway, there were only a few of us (ID 104) who attended and it was a little disappointing since this event was made for us to all get together, but it was fun overall cos we were able to talk and hang out with our other batch mates and favorite professors, and it was nice to be back in our school grounds. :)
*The ICC Hotel (or CSB Hotel) is part of our campus and is basically our school's hotel. We are the only 3-star Hotel School in the Philippines and is in partnership with Vatel.

The Homecoming ended way early so some of us decided to head off to Grilla to grab a few drinks, eat and hang out longer.
Thank you to Manong Waiter for this group shot. We had about 5 or 6 shots in different cameras.
The ones seated are Alumni-turned-Faculty and the ones standing were some of the faculty's former students. I excluded myself cos I took up a different major. ALL of them were in Culinary Arts, the Faculty were Chefs and I was the ONLY one who's a Hospitality Management major. Still, we are all friends. :)
Overall it was a fun fun night. I just hope next time an occasion like this occur, at least half of the 104 people would attend.
