This photo was taken last September 18 during the District Meet of General Trias 2. It just so happened that SFDMPS also joined (for the first time) the said event. I, together with Ms. Bird were so excited when we first found about the news! And it also happened that Santiago Elem. School (the school where me and Bird are currently teaching) followed after the SFDMPS in the line (we are just beside them! haha!) Of course, we made kumustahan and all. It's as if, we're still with them. (hehe..) I really missed them.. so much! I hope we can have the time to visit again the school.. so that I can see all of them!!! :)
Top photo: me, ma'am alyn and ma'am bird
Bottom photo: jerome, marky, mm, bryan, jannella, ms. ahlyn, janmae, caren and shiela (christian was also there pero wala sa photo.. suplado! peace! haha!)


I captured this unusual rock formation in Pansol, Laguna (where we had, together with my co-teachers in SFDMPS, our night swimming). I was quite amazed with it and I felt a little bit mystical about it. It looks like a head of a horse or tikbalang (a mystical figure according to Philppine myth, having a head of a horse and a body of a man) or somewhat ahedres (chess).

It had been another tiring day for me. I set my cellphone last night to alarm @ 4:00AM. It did alarm @ 4:00 AM but I was too sleepy to get off my bed. So, I continued to sleep. I finally woke up at around 4:59 AM (hehe..). I know that my laziness will get me into trouble so I fetched myself and went to the bathroom. After a few minutes, I hurriedly get into my jeans and the brown tee that I bought a week ago and just slipped on my flip flops. Luckily, I did not wait for over a century for a jeepney going to Tejero. While in the jeepney, I can't help but to look at my wristwatch every now and then... I don't want to be late again in my first class. When I got off the jeep, I was so lucky that the FX is not yet full, so we waited for another 2 more passengers.
After more than an hour, I finally arrived at PNU (I'm taking up my MA @ my alma mater every Saturday) As usual, I am too early for the first period. Its either I'm too early or I'm too late. But I would rather choose the first one. While waiting for my other classmates, I used my remaining time taking pictures (like the one you see on top). I got the opportunity to do that when I'm alone bacause if someone will see me taking pictures, they will give me that weird look as if I'm a looney or something. I really wanted to take pictures around PNU but I don't know how to do that without looking like a weirdo.
So, my class @ SPED 505 with Dr. Quijano starts @ 7:45AM - 9:45AM. Then it followed by SPED 500 with Prof. Vendivel @ 10:00AM-12:00PM.
While going to our next class (SPED 500) me, Jam and Crysel decided to shift course from SPED to Guidance (like a Homecoming... or a Prodigal Son.. our course in College was BS Psychology major in Guidance and Counseling). Crysel already told us that she will shift to Guidance next semester because she needs to have an MA in Guidance for she was hired by their admin as Guidance Counselor and she was encouraged to take Guidance for Licensure. Jam and I agreed that we're going nowhere.. maybe if we are really SPED teachers.. but we're not. And I know my tolerance. I don't think I can manage those kids. "Normal kids" are hard to discipline how much more those kids who needs special care and attention. They say its "sayang!"... well yeah, I already took up 18 units but 9 units can be credited to my next specialization. And the knowledge that I got while taking SPED is worth the time that I spent. And I am so glad that I got Dr. Capulong, Dr. Quijano and Prof. Vendivel as professors.

Belated Happy Birthday...

Last September 8, the whole Catholic community celebrated the birthday of our divine mother, Mama Mary. I remembered when I was still in the Parochial school, we will have this short ceremony for her. Just to let the pupils remember and understand the importance of this event. Even if I was not in the Parochial school anymore, it does not stop me from remembering this very important day.

My Favorite Song

(Moonstar 88)

Oo nga pala, hindi nga pala tayo
Hanggang dito lang ako, nangangarap na mapa-sa’yo
Hindi sinasadya Na hanapin pa ang lugar ko
Asan nga ba ako? Andiyan pa ba sa iyo?

Nahihilo, nalilito
Asan ba ‘ko sa ‘yo?
Aasa ba ‘ko sa ‘yo?
Nasusuka ako, kinakain na ang loob
Masakit na mga tuhod, kailangan bang lumuhod?
Gusto ko lang naman, yung totoo
Yung tipong ang sagot
Ay di rin isang tanong

Nahihilo, nalilito
Asan ba ‘ko sa ‘yo? Asan ba ‘ko sa ‘yo?
Nahihilo, nalilito
Asan ba ‘ko sa ‘yo?
Aasa ba ‘ko sa ‘yo?
Dahil, ‘di na makatulog
Hindi na makakain
Dahil hindi na makatawa
Dahil, hindi na
Oo nga pala, hindi nga pala tayo
Hanggang dito nalang ako

Nahihilo... Nahihilo... Nalilito...

* pansin mo yung photo? nope... hindi napadami blush-on ko! I edited it on nero snapshot! lolz! ;) yeah I know.. it's an okay photo... next time.. it'll be perfect!

yeah... right!

I received this text message from a College friend just a few hours ago. I just wanna share it with you because I found it quite meaningful. Yeah, right! Nakaka-relate ba! (haha!)
Here it goes:

"I don't know why we all hang on to something we know we're better off letting go...
It's like we're scared to lose what we don't even really have...
Some of us say we'd rather have that something than absolutely nothing...
But the truth is...
To have it halfway is harder than not having it at all."

Sana nga di na lang siya... but I cannot control it. Can I? Yeah, maybe... but it will take a while... ; (

*Anyway, the picture has nothing to do wih my mood today. hehe... But that view of Mt. Buntis didn't fail to mesmerize me.. It always give me this mystical feeling.. Although the image of the mountain is not very visible... (pasensiya na, hindi ako professional photographer eh!) lol! ;p

The Irony of Life

I can't believed myself on what I just found out! It's really true that life is full of surprises!
A link will lead to another link that will connect to another and another one... (sigh..)
The thing is that... I got a photo of someone from (I know it's not right.. lol!) but I saw some good pictures of our church etc. and I decided to post it on friendster (and since I miss Parochial!) and even if, there's actually a signature of the photographer on the picture itself, I thought that it's safe to post it since he doesn't know me or he is not connected to me in any way... or so I thought.. and not knowing that he is actually HIS brother! (Malay ko ba eh iba yung name na ginamit niya sa mga photos niya! ;p)
So what I did was.. I immediately deleted those photos that I posted on my friendster account! Nakakatawa ha! Of all the people... Gosh!
The same thing happened when I found that he's the uncle of one of my pupils! Imagined that!
Well, ganun talaga... baka naman may mas grabe pa diyan ha!
* I hope he will be back to his old self... mas malinis tingnan. ;p
as if... (Ok God... I know.)
