Party like it’s 1999

Flashback Friday: Cyberpress (IT Journalists Association of the Philippines) Christmas party. 
I think this was in 1999 because Prudence Orani was the president and I was the VP — I became the president the following year. Anyway, this was the year where Patti Nisperos (who was then with BusinessWorld) and I were the hosts, and then National Computer Center Director General Ike Señeres inducted our batch of Cyberpress officers. Also present as a speaker was then President Joseph Estrada’s ICT (Information and Communications Technology) presidential adviser Chito Kintanar.
So if I’m remembering the date correctly, we were literally partying like it’s 1999 hahaha! Just days before the dreaded Y2K Bug a.k.a. Millennium Bug was supposed to cause computers all over the world to shut down or go haywire.
