The SSEAYP International General Assembly is fast approaching . The start of the month of May will be beyond the usual for former SSEAYP participating youth who will join the gathering in Cebu .

Sadly , I will not go . Being a a former participating youth for the 27th SSEAYP(exPPY as they may call you) , I will be missing a lot . But then again , priorities are priorities .

Here are some basic information about SIGA 2008

SIGA Objectives :
1. To create an opportunity for the reunion of former participants (PYs & NLs) to promote lasting friendship, understanding and goodwill

2. To exchange information on activities of respective Alumni Associations and the Secretariat of SSEAYP International

3. To enhance the network of cooperation among former participants through opportunities in various social and business undertakings

Aside from the SIGA prescribed activities (the usual formalities and discussions) , the Organizing Committee decided to include BEYOND THE USUAL activities. This includes 5 or 7 insti visit packages, amazing race, beach, parties etc. (Thanks Ugin for the info)
