Hetalia Piri - Oblation Run and France... by adventvera16 Hetalia Piri - Oblation Run and France... by adventvera16
Because I'm still laughing..XD.

No offense to anyone on this! Just for plain fun!!
Boy1: Kasama ba natin siya? (Is he with us?)
Boy2: Ewan... (No idea...)

The Oblation Run is celebrated during the last few weeks of December in the UP Campus. The main point is that these men run naked (well, they do wear masks) as a sign of protesting. They give roses to some lucky girls along the way. And who did I think of?? XD

Here's a background (Wiki)
The Oblation Run (sometimes referred to as the Ritual Dance of the Brave) is an annual event held by several Filipino chapters of Alpha Phi Omega (APO) in different universities in the Philippines. The event first organized in 1977 at University of the Philippines Diliman to promote Hubad na Bayani (Tagalog for Naked Hero), a play. It draws its name from the Oblation, a statue of a nude man located in every University of the Philippines (UP) campus, which symbolizes "a selfless offering of one’s self to the country." The event is usually done on December 16, and serves as a protest to contemporary national issues.

Participants of the Diliman Oblation Run are male APO members numbering 24 on average. Women participating in the event, however, is not unheard of. Runners usually bear masks to hide their identities, and may wear leaves to cover their genitals. They usually hand roses to a number of female spectators.

My experience:
1st Year:
I was just casually walking around Palma Hall because my next class was at 1. I was just weirded out by the huge number of people inside the hall. It is common for it to have lots of people. But not that much!
So...I just walked around for a bit and I received a flyer. It was the Oblation Run Day. And I was there at around 1130. The Oblation Run would start at 12.
So for the heck of it, I stayed. I mean, it would be a UP experience, right? So, I waited there and suddenly someone came up to me.
"Ate, busy po ba kayo? (Ate, are you busy? *Ate is the formal or polite term to call an older sister)" the girl with a yellow ribbon asked me. I should have seen that signal.
"Hindi naman. Bakit? (Not really, why?)
"Ah! Kung okay lang, pakihawak lang itong banner. Thank you! (Ah! If it's okay, would you please hold up this banner? Thank you!)" and she left me holding up a huge tarpaulin banner with several other girls holding it up.

Then, there were several security guards and people with ribbons lining us up, like they were making way for a road...but why was I on the very side of that road.

My answer came to me in a few minutes. of the people....and-
OH DEAR LORD. I should have seen the signs! But oh well, I got front view! XD. I even got a rose...woah. :iconblushplz:

But anyway, what's worse was that a camera lady tried to interview the people who were on the frontlines...meaning us with the banners. I can't recall who the reporter was, but I know it was from GMA due to the cameraman. I didn't go for an interview...but I did hide my face. I'd rather not. XD.

And...when it ended. I finally got to let go and the Ate from before came back and thanked me. "Nagenjoy ka? (Did you enjoy it?)" and I could tell her smile was...yeah. She meant to do that...
I just said. "Sobra (So much.) Sa susunod ulit ha~ (Next time again~!)" and I winked at her as she continued laughing. I just left for my next class...

I hadn't gone to another Oblation Run after that. Well, main reasons involve class hours, missed it...or like I already saw one...but maybe I could see another one someday~.

And as for...
1. Running. 2. Man. 3. Roses. = :iconpervyfranceplz: -> my thoughts. And voila! I made this! XD. You can laugh if you want~.

Hahahaha!! I see stuff like this in the news and seeing naked men running is just too unsettling. I would've stopped watching the news if I ever saw France O.O LOL

Oh so that was Oblation run I didn't know that XDD lol France

Pffft. Hahaha! I know this event! XD

If France ever tried to spread his "love" during Oblation run, I bet there won't be anymore Oblation runs after that. XD

In short, na trauma na ung mga taga U.P. XP

Naks ate taga U.P ka pala? :D

Ahehe~. Kabayan pala! :icononionxdplz:

Yep, UPD. Graduating this semester na. Kasi kasi ba naman. Talagang pumasok sa isip ko si France sa Oble. Ikaw ba? Tatangapin mo rosas niya pag nagbigay siya habang tumatakbo?
Feel ko mas magtitili ang mga babae.... Ang lakas kaya ng sigawan nun.

Nah~. Di pa naman yan grabe na makakatrauma. More of...tradition na.

Thanks po~! Psychology student?

Hahaha, Kung makita ko lang po si France sa Oble, naku, hahabol ako. Nyahehehehe. XD

Nakakatuwang isipin na sasabay si France sa pang araw araw na buhay ng mga Pinoy, tulad ng sasabit sa jeep na naka hubad. haha. XD

Congratz ate gagraduate ka na this sem~! Yaaay~! :D

Yes po, BAP ( Bachelor of Arts in Psychology ) po ako sa San Beda College Alabang. XD

Nako, kahit hindi mo na ako i-po. Ayos lang ako na tawaging Ate na lang. Kung sasabit nga siya sa jeep, (huwag naman sanang hubad), hindi ko kakayanin yan.
Salamat sa pagbati~! Pero matagal-tagal pa rin yan~. Hmmm, dati binalak ko magshift sa BS Psych, pero di natuloy. Oh well. Pero maramign field work ang Psych, no?
chocopochi Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes. Medyo flexible ang Psychology in any fields. Mostly para sa H.R sa mga Industrial. Pero ngaun,may balita na magkakaroon na raw ng licensure exam para jan. Para maging official Psychologist na talaga. Kaya pahirap din ung mga lessons namin. :/

Di ko rin yata kakayanin ang Psychology kung tinuloy ko. Masaya na ako sa science at naka-adapt na ako. Pagbutihan mo sa college~!
chocopochi Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
hahaha. Thanks ate. Pagbubutihan ko to para makahabol sa March nxt year. :)

Kayo din ate, pagbutihan mo rin. :)

Kaya natin 'to! Gorabells! XD
