Last August 4, 2018, the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority held the first ever Big Sis Lil Sis Day at Barangay Santol, Quezon City. The event was headed by Alexis Desamparado (Ф2017 Class 2021), Fershell Siao (Ф2017 Class 2021), Patricia Lota (Ф2018A Class 2022), Patricia Sy (Ф2018A Class 2022), Jian Sarsagat (Ф2018B Class 2022), and Cheska Rosas (Ф 2016 Class 2020). Present in the event were sisses from Ф 2016 (PH16ht Club), Ф 2017 (PHIreflies), Ф 2018A (DiversiPHI), and the newest batch, Ф 2018B (UniPHIed).
Prior to the event, sisses were grouped into five teams based on the Big Sis-Lil Sis pairings. The program, hosted by Patricia Sy, Ф 2018A Class 2022, started with booth games, specifically Donut Drop, Pass the Message, Cookie Face, Guess Who, and Taboo. Each team was able to play all five booth games that provided not only opportunities to get to know more about each other but also opportunities to discover more about individual talents, maximize every member’s strengths, and work as a team.
For the second part of the program, all the teams were gathered together to play relay games and charades. The last game, Human Tic Tac Toe, was played only by Team 2 and Team 3, the two teams with the highest points. Team 3 emerged as the overall winner of the event.
Although only one team was announced as a winner, all the sisses won prizes – treasures in the form of sisterhood and fun memories! Big Sis Lil Sis Day will surely be remembered not only as an afternoon that filled the hearts with laughter and joy, and the stomach with food but also as a great new way to start the school year.
The success of the event would not have been possible without our gracious hosts, Editha Carlos Yap-Legaspi, Ф 1982A Class 1985, and Katelyn Edelwina Yap Legaspi, Ф 2018A Class 2022.
