Henri participates in Culture Show preparations

After having gone with Kate to look at the MSE Library, Henri wanted to get an idea of what she does besides studying. As a result, Henri found himself trekking with Kate to Charles Commons’s multipurpose one sunny Sunday afternoon to observe a Culture Show dance practice by the Filipino Students Association.

Img_1349Upon entering the room, Henri took a look at some of the framed photographs on the multipurpose room’s wall, including a photo of two Buddhist monks. After his idyllic museum-like experience, he realized that he and Kate were the only people who had shown up so far.

Once they were laid on the floor, Henri examined the poles up close to satisfy his curiosity. Not long afterwards, more people arrived at the multipurpose room, and Henri had the pleasure of watching them practice tinikling.
