During the countdown to midnight, there was a program on which various celebrities appeared: some sang, some danced, some told stories about their time in UST. Most of them were UST alumni, like Albert Martinez (who was so hot, BTW), Mr. Fu, RJ Jimenez, Sarah Geronimo, and Jamie Rivera. Some, like Gary Valenciano, weren't, but they still got into the whole university's celebratory mood which they admitted was infectious.
Even though Itchyworms wasn't the finale, it still felt like they were, because they energized the crowd and got us all jumping up and down to Akin Ka Na Lang, Beer, and Loveteam, among other songs.
|Feel na feel ang pagkanta ng Loveteam: "Sabi mo na mahal mo 'ko, ngunit di naman seryoso!"|
In my opinion, the best speech came from John "Sweet" Lapuz. He adlibbed a lot, unlike other speakers who read from a script, and he spoke so passionately about his experience in UST that we truly felt how emotional he was, and how proud he was of being a Thomasian.
Here's a video of the fireworks display, though it does not do justice to the actual thing.
It was so incredibly beautiful. I was in literal slack-jawed awe the entire time.

I said it so many times before, but I'll say it again: I'm proud to be a Thomasian!
