Weekend activities for May 17 and 18, 2014

It's going to be a quite busy weekend for people as the summer ends and the coming school year is about to start. Some schol have decided to move their calendars to September. Another sly move to be like our favorite Murica.

Anyways here are some of the things that might interest you this weekend.

I think I will be biased with the PATAS meetup so I will bring my book, phone and knitting project because I know the boredom will be grinding hard.

PATAS May Meetup

Location: IMACROM building (do follow the guidelines below)
When: May 17, 2014; 3:00 to 7:00 PM


Everyone, especially the newbies in the group, is welcome to join the meetup! This is our chance to socialize with one another in the offline world. After all, the Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society isn't just an FB group; we're composed of real individuals striving to make a difference in the society. It's not just all debates and online discussions; the bond that strengthens the group is our camaraderie and sincerity to reach out.

Brief guide/directions to the venue:
1) If you're coming from the North, you can just ride a bus along EDSA that is south-bound. Drop-off point is the Mercury drug store in Kamuning road. You can just walk for 5-minutes straight and the Imacron building (which is red and blue in color) will be on your right side, just in front of a tapsilogan.

2) If you're coming from the South, you can just ride a bus along EDSA that is north-bound. Drop-off point is Jollibee at Kamias road. You'll need to cross EDSA to the other side to Mercury Drug store Kamuning road. Walk for 5-minutes straight from Mercury Drug store and the Imacron building (which is red and blue in color) will be on your right side, just in front of a tapsilogan.
