PASA History

We’re Kaibigans... Forevermore...
— Blanche Recasata, Spring 2005 PASA Secretary

PASA: Throughout The Years was created to celebrate the history of CSUF PASA Kaibigan. Here you will find an ongoing collection of photos, video links, stories, and milestones from the 1980's to now taken from Chronicles/Kronicles, PCN program booklets, The Daily Titan, and PASA alumni. This is dedicated to all PASA alumni and current PASA members. Enjoy!

fall 1983

PASA is established by a group of friends led by Robert Litorjua and Eloine de Jesus. They started with 6 members with the hopes of getting Pilipino students to unite, to learn more about the Pilipino culture, and to gain representation on campus. (Annabelle Caberte & Esther Gatbonton,"History of the Kaibigans")

spring 1984

From 1983 - Spring 1984, PASA had 20 members where some were from Fullerton Junior College. In the end, About 80% of the members were from FJC. (Annabelle Caberte & Esther Gatbonton,"History of the Kaibigans")

1985 - 1986

A Junior College transfer student, Don Palpallatoc, would rise up and bring PASA to new heights. This would not be possible without the support and help of his friends Gigi Bandelian, Carol Dizon, Eileen Rogan, Bernadette Barrantes, Veronica Chan, Randy Sevilla, and Annabelle Caberte. During this time, Friendship Games was created under president Manny Gaudier and Sports Coordinator Don Palpallatoc. (Annabelle Caberte & Esther Gatbonton,"History of the Kaibigans") It started off as an internal event where CSUF organizations competed against each other and then FG began having external schools compete. The first external FG champions was Mt. Sac's Pilipino club Kasama. Today, Friendship Games is one of the biggest Filipino events in the nation. Also within this time frame, Les Ortiz and other board members coordinate PASA's first PCN.

1987

With PASA growing with successful events such as PCN and FG, the Multi-Cultural Council recognized PASA with the Most Inspirational Organization Award and the Most Promising Organization Award.

fall 1990

PASA members would call themselves The Kaibigans. The Kaibigans would compete in the 1990 Northridge Invitational Tournament at L.A. Valley College playing in Men's and Women's basketball and volleyball. At the first general meeting, over 90 people attended. The Kaibigans held a fall picnic for their members and they got to know each other through "Musical people, the balloon toss, and The Nasty." Friendship Games was held on October 13th where 18 SCPASA schools attended with an estimated 800 attendees. Games that were played that are no longer played were The Bermuda Triangle, The Nutcracker, and Rhythm Machine. PASA also held the Boo Bash Halloween Party. One of the biggest events PASA held this semester was the K Klub Fall Dance. 31 members helped set up the dance and over 450 people attended the dance. Canned goods were being accepted and PASA was able to donate 4 large bags of cans to the SIPA center in Los Angeles. PASA also participated in the 2nd annual Elephant Race where president Shar San Miguel and her elephant placed 4th. Over winter break, PASA held a field trip to San Luis Obispo where PASA and Cal Poly SLO's Filipino club hanged out with one another.

spring 1991

PASA participated in the Annual Asian Week where John Tran hosted a fashion show and was choreographed by Vilma Villaflor. PASA members showcased the fashion and styles of the Igorot, Muslim, and Maria Clara suite. They also performed "Binasuan" and "Tinikling". PASA showed up to Cal Poly Pomona's 2nd annual SportsFest playing volleyball, softball, tennis, and basketball. During this semester's PCN, "A Culture of Many Faiths", SCPASA would comment "That's a Fullerton PCN" because of the dedication and hard work shown on stage by PASA members.

A couple of PASA members would also start up Theta Delta Beta at CSUF in 1991.

spring 1994

Ronald Casino and a group of PASA friends would move their hangout spot from the pool tables in the TSU underground  to a place on the other side of the TSU underground. They called it the "Downstairs" and that name would live on for over a decade. During that time, some members would call "Downstairs" the "Fire-side Lounge" or the "Piano Room" where ultimately it became known as "Fireside" today. PASA's home at CSUF was established.

spring 1999

spring 2000

At Cal Poly's Sportsfest, PASA's alumni football team made it to the championship game and the freshman team was the first frosh team to make it to playoffs. At the end of the semester, some PASA members work together with the Asian Pacific American Resource Center to create P-Grad, the Pilipino graduation.

spring 2001

Downstairs/Fireside is almost lost. There were plans of making Fireside into a computer lab but  PASA members lobbied against it during a formal meeting. Members shed tears because Fireside was home to them. Their argument was lost but the computer lab plan didn't follow through because of regulations. Fireside would live on for generations to come.

fall 2001

Kronicle Editor (it was known as Chronicle Editor at this time), Andrea Alonzo, made the Chronicle interesting with "Dear 'Drea Column". Members could ask Andrea for advice anonymously and her reply would show up in the Chronicle. Members also submitted poems and songs for the Chronicle. It was during this semester where Matt Geluz fell off the back of a Uhaul truck and became a favorite memory for many PASA members in the early 2000's. Having no cell phones or fancy laptops, many members killed time in Fireside by playing games such as Puso'y Dos, L.M.F, Blackjack, Black Magic, Click click Bang bang, and Mah Jong. The semester ended with a Sadie's banquet in the Pub. 

spring 2002

During this semester, PASA went a snowboarding trip in February, watched the new Spiderman movie at Cerritos mall, got free ice cream at Baskin Robbins after PCN practice, and had a bonfire at Huntington Beach in May. Over the past years, meetings were held at TSU Gabriellino at 4pm. This semester, meetings were held at 3:30pm in Gabriellino and would be held at that time for many of years. At Sportsfest, PASA's girl's basketball team (Erin, Susan, Sara, Grace, Amy E., Aimee O., Audrey, Amber, and Nancy) placed 2nd and tennis doubles (Jensen & Tintin) placed 3rd place. The softball team had a lot of fun playing with a neon pink & blue bat, borrowed gloves, and blue shirts with paper numbers. Publicity chair, Dru Wu, started up a PASA website at pasacsuf.tripod.com. The website had pictures, articles, and even a chat room (The PASA website still lives but it is infested with pop-ups and probably viruses. Check it out at your own risk) Within this semester, Kronicle Editor Erika Estrella changes "Chronicle" back to "Kronicle".

Fall 2002

During the first general meeting held on September 11 in Pavilion C, a prayer was held at the beginning of the meeting in remembrance of the victims of 9/11. Also at 1st gen, Team Millenia performed. Over 100 people from PASA and different schools attended TM's first workshop and they practiced Under the Bridge (behind the Titan Bookstore) at 7pm. During this time, there was also the Dreas who were Andrea Alonzo (External Vice President) and Andrea Deguzman (Secretary). Members distinguished them as Drea1 and Drea2. Historian, Ryan F. Rosete, would also create the family known as the Sakit Family. The Sakit Family would ultimately be called "Siopao" so the family had a food name to compete with another family called The Hot Dog Family (now extinct). At general meetings, board would have a box called The "Shoe Box" and members could place their thoughts in the box whether it be feedback or submissions for the Kronicle. The "Shoe Box" didn't get many submissions and was renamed as The "Lonely Shoe Box" and was threatened to be replaced by the "Ugly Wood Suggestion Box". Speaking of Kronicle, the "Dear Drea Column" came back. At one point, Drea took a break and Dru Wu stepped in with "Dear Dru... Dru? What Happened to Drea??" giving advice from a guy's perspective. The popular NorCal Trip was known as the Frisco Trip during this time and PASA went to NorCal during the 2nd week of October. They were joined by De Anza College, Mission College, UC Santa Cruz, San Francisco State, San Jose State, and many more.  One fun social event was the "Pajama Jammy Jam Kickback" held at PASA Advisor Matt Geluz's apartment. Members spent the night getting to know each other while watching movies such as "Shrek" and "Fight Club". Fall 2002 was also the time where the Ate Kuya Ading Program changed its after event from BJ's to Chuck E. Cheese (at the time, it was Diamond Bar's Chuck E. Cheese). Oh yeah and membership back then was $10 a semester and $15 for the whole year! 

spring 2003

One fun event was the PASA-THETA-TM picnic where members of each group hanged out with each other at Arovista park with lots of food and pieing of board members. There was also a PCN Info/Hype Night where PCN Coordinator Randi Lopez showed his high school video of his rendition of Pandango sa Ilaw, Binasuan, and Tinikling. The night ended with watching 2001's PCN, Directions. A bowling tournament with a $150 cash prize for the winning team was hosted by PASA and TDB. Some of the AKA families that were there was the Hotdog Family, Cutie Patootie, AX, and the no name family. In the end of the tournament, it was the EventsCompany team that won the cash prize. PASA went into Sportsfest with a football team, 3 tennis doubles teams, a volleyball team, and a softball team consisting of board and one general member named Jamie. Formal was held at The Reef in Long Beach and those who went single were known as The Stag Party. The Stag Party watched X-Men 2 and carpooled together to The Reef. They danced together including the slow dances.

Team Millenia becomes its own entity at this time but remained as the only competitive hip hop dance team at CSUF and still had strong support from PASA. Alumnus Ross Bascos invites PASA to perform at his wedding reception and PASA came through with Pandango Sa Ilaw and Tinikling. At the Chuck E. Cheese AKA after event, CPP Barkada joins PASA in the fun. Members tried to fit into the three horse carousel ride which they thought they were going to break it! On November 1st, Academic Chair Lyn Gutierrez organized a Thanksgiving Potluck dinner for all the ates, kuyas, and adings.

spring 2004

 To fundraise for PCN, board provided a PCN jar where members donated their spare change to help fund PCN. PASA performs PCN: Pack It back at La Mirada Theater. At Sportsfest, the football and softball team made it to playoffs and Sports Coordinator Roman Castro ranked first for the playoffs. Before formals (it was called "Boogie Nights... PORN"), Kym Lim, Mark Hamanaka, and Manuel Irigoyen go to LA to buy centerpieces. Walking in the fashion district, there was a sus man approaching them. Out of nowhere, the man sucker punches Manuel knocking out the lens of his glasses. They later learn that this man was just randomly assaulting random people and two guys were out to chase after the man. Kym, Mark, and Manuel rushed out of the fashion district and Manuel's message for the members was "Don't ditch class, especially if you're going to LA.". PASA holds a spring break bonfire. Dru Wu creates the summer board games which unites all the Socal Filipino Clubs in SCPASA. Family Games is also created by Mike Adeva but was a one day event.

fall 2004

For the first time in PASA history, the fall 2004 board creates a script for the first general meeting which is still done today. The board members reenacted a day in high school with a pep rally and weird teachers with a main character named "Barrel Guy". PASA goes to the Chuck E. Cheese in Fullerton after AKA. Members went hardcore on karaoke at "Mike Night". On the NorCal Trip, someone connected people's eyebrows into a unibrow while they were sleeping. PASA held a Casino night at The Country's Country Club (Diamond Bar) and a Halloween PASA event at The Hop in Lakewood where there was a $200 costume contest. PASA also had movie nights where one time, PASA members watched "The Grudge" together and they agreed watching a scary movie together was a lot more fun when everyone watching is scared.
