We all know that when Ber month comes, lots of parties and drinking events happen. Yes, from the title itself OCTOBERFEST. Well, me and my closest friends (high school friends) have our own little Octoberfest too!
One of my friends is an October celebrant. We started this tradition when we got in to college we took different courses. We have different class schedules and different group of friends. I think that was around 2008 when we started our Octoberfest tradition. That was also the time that we started drinking, I mean our 'walwal session'.
Since we have different schedules, we tried to set up a date wherein we can celebrate Ti's birthday. Unfortunately, walang date na pwede kaming lahat. So what we did was we tried to go to Ti's house every week during that month and just let each other know that we'll go to Ti's. Well, the phrase 'kapag hindi planado laging natutuloy' applies to us, most of the time. You know how college classes go, lalo na sa univesity namin. Madalas on the spot magcancel ng class ang prof. So we were kind of hoping that schedules may change that week or that day. And yes, most of the time our schedule changed. Cancelled classes, CHECK. Rescheduled quiz/project/midterm/finala, CHECK. Cancelled date, CHECK. So we ended up, going to her house every week to celebrate. And so Octoberfesr began. We did this for quite sometime and hell yeah, we did almost choked to kalasingan and baliwan pero walang pikunan.
I can still remember one of us (let's call her Ki) has the lowest alcohol tolerance. After he got so drunk she continued repeating the last 3 questions she asked before she passed out. Everytime na magigising sya, she would repeat asking the questions literally again and again and again.
Si Pao nasan na? Ung pinanonood namin tapos na? Si Ming, (dats me) uwi na kami?
Imagine, all night hearing this and putting her back to sleep everytime. Don't worry we got used to it through the years.
I also remember Tito Marvin (Ti's uncle), na taga buyo ng inuman sesh namin. Kapag nalaman nyang andun kami makikishot dn and minsan magluluto pa pulutan and taga bili syempre all girls kami delikado na lumabas ng kami kami and lasing pa. Then we ended up buying 4 mucho of redhorse. So it's like a whole bottle for each of us. That's the time that we started to level up our drinking game.
Lagi naming panghimasmas is ice cream. :)
I will always remember our drinking moments, habits and kalokohan. Apat na nga lang kami, nagkakalokohan pa kami.
Years passed, we have our jobs and we still tried to do our best to celebrate our Octoberfest until weekly celebrations turned into a not inuman session. At our age, we already enjoy drinking wine (Sign of titahood). I think we are passed the walwalan days, we don't enjoy being so drunk (I mean we still do but not as much as before). We enjoy drinking different types of wine. Chill drinks or even mixing drinks (ung mga patweetums na drinks sa bar) charot more like cocktail drinks. Ganun lang then eating. Ti likes korean food, mahilig dn sya magluto so madalas foodtrip with wine na lang. Good combination daw sa meat eklat char.
We still go to some bars but not to walwal, just to drink enough buckets for us and enjoy chika sesh.
We didn't celebrate our Octoberfest last year as Ti had a fever and she didn't let anyone go to her house. (She didn't get covid, it was just a regular fever due to the weather, she just want to make sure that all people are safe). This year, we just got a small and quick celebration. Potluck of food and chikachika for the last few months that we didnt see each other, I was there only for a couple of hours. For the meantime, tita moments na muna kami since pandemic pa and I have a plus one already.
Aside from our Octoberfest tradition, we also have our year end tradition. I'll share about it soon or on December. :)
Do you have any traditions with your friends? Share mo naman. Pandemic pa, kwento mo yan samin at dito natin icelebrate. :)
