Okay…so we all know that a weeklong break is happening from November 13 to 17, 2017, to give way to the 31st ASEAN Summit. But before you get all excited with planning how to spend it (because let’s face it, hibernating and out-of-town trips can be very tempting at this point), why not consider checking out the activities the summit has lined up for us?
Our generation is big on #throwbacks—so much that we’ll glady take our 90s-loving tribute game to the next level! Think about it. Videos on social media can be edited to appear like they were filmed on VHS camcorders. Filters instantly transform your Instagram posts into seemingly real, vintage polaroids. There are even apps that automatically include the date which you took your pictures (complete with good ol’ fashioned, digital number font!).
But if you’re looking to add even more treasures to your well curated, sentimental feed, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) is set to host the ASEAN Invitational Philatelic Exhibit (ASEANPEx) from November 4-6, 2017. This three-day event will showcase a milieu of collector’s item stamps as well as other philatelic products inspired by the country’s breath-taking destinations, diverse culture, and rich history. Score yourselves PHP100 worth of stamps from ASEANPEx and you’ll get a chance to join another event: the Cosplay Competition on November 5. Participants wearing the most slayin’ costume in their chosen category will receive SM gift certificates!
So, for those of you still figuring out what millennial-approved stuff to do for the next five days, you’re welcome.
