SPECTRUM 2018: Explore The Shores
Lance Paolo Lim
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have summer in January? Get ready for some music, games, and fun in the sun because St. Paul College Pasig is bringing paradise to you with their annual school fair entitled Spectrum: Explore the Shores. It will be three days filled with thrilling rides, exciting booths, excellent performances, and many more! Excited? Of course, you are! Here’s what you can look forward to in Spectrum 2018.
1. Carpe Diem
Experience the adventure of a lifetime with your barkada at Carpe Diem, meaning “Seize the day!” Inspired by The Amazing Race, the Center for Sports’ adaptation will take you all over the SPCP campus—running, yelling, and completing fun tasks along the way. One team must be composed of 8 to 10 players, with at least two of them being Paulinians. The first team to complete all tasks will emerge as the winner and take home a cash prize! Participants can choose between the two days allotted for the event, and prizes will be awarded for the winners of each day. For more information, check out the CFS twitter account: @CFSports1718.
2. Hula Kahiko
When looking for relaxation and fun, nothing beats an energy-packed Zumba dance class. Spectrum offers just that, with a Zumba session that features one of the most energetic dance instructors in the Philippines. Invite your friends and come on over on the second day of Spectrum from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Get ready for the exhilarating dance moves that await you. This is one dance class you must not miss!
3. Cafe Tres Artiste
Tucked below the Main High School Building, a quaint café bustles with hungry customers from morning ‘til afternoon. Now on its seventh year, Café Tres Artiste – more commonly known as “CTA” – has become a beloved serene spot to escape the harrowing fair rush outside. The café, spearheaded by the Centers for Culinary, Visual, and Communication Arts, offers affordable home cooked comfort food, live open mic performances, and visually pleasing aesthetics.
This year’s menu offers a blend of Japanese and tropical food. The open mic showcases spoken word and musical performances, as well as anything in between, letting you watch while savoring the delicious food. The café is located at the Pere Chauvet Hall and is open on all days of the fair from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Want a break from the crowded party? Come and Join MAC-I in their annual musical event, Open Jam entitled KANIKAPILA on January 27, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Enjoy the luau and be serenaded by talented performers as they take you away from the busy shores to the serene sea with OPM tunes waiting to be discovered. Featured performers include students from St. Paul as well as other talents. And following tradition, our faculty members will grace the stage filled with energy to keep you all going. Come on over and join the fun!
5. Ma Kai
After exploring the shore and chasing the waves, it’s time to say “Aloha” to the three days of fun under the sun. To cap off Spectrum 2018, Ma Kai, this year’s variety show will include acts like Ben&Ben, IV of Spades, BP Valenzuela, and Legit Status. Also embedded in this year’s variety show is Hoku, a talent show featuring student talents from schools across the metro.
This year's talent show is inspired by the Hawaiian word for “star,” hoku. Hoku will bring together different talents who will rock the stage to become just that– a star! The show will gather high school students, in groups or solo acts, to show their talents and shine their brightest. Look forward to this year's variety talent show, as we anticipate performances of local stars and rising stars.
