Skywatch Friday - Pay it Forward

I shot this photo on our way to one of my pupil's house. She's gonna be part of the school's project, together with a non-government organization, to help those kids who are not lucky enough financially.
I shot this while riding on a pick-up and I was glad that it didn't come out blurred. The above photo is the original picture. I like the view of the field, getting ready for the planting of rice. The second picture is the same as the above photos, I just cropped it to emphasize the sky during sunset. :)

Coming Back

Kinder - Love

Grade IV - Saint Lorenzo Ruiz
Grade I Prep - Faith

Today was a very memorable one because I was able (actually, "were", because we are actually two, me and Ms. Bird) to come back to the school where I had formerly teach. I was invited as one of the judges for their Field Demo, it is part of their activity for this month, the Octoberfest (it was formerly the Foundation Day). Each group presented their Field Demo with the theme "Philippine Festival". The presentation starts from the Kindergarten up to Grade VI.
It was so funny because whenever my former pupils saw me, they smiled and waved at me, not minding that it was indeed a competition. :)

I was so proud of them. And even though me and Ms. Bird are no longer part of the school anymore, our hearts will always be with them.

And yeah, I really miss them. :(

I was able to capture some pictures and videos of the Field Demo and some of them are on the above photos.

united colors...

Last Wednesday, the annual West Cavite Sports Unit Meet started with the opening ceremony and a parade. It was held at the Convention Center, since our town, General Trias is the host district for this year. It is a three-day activity wherein the pupils/players will try their best to win and take pride of their schools and shall I say, towns! The winning players/athletes will compete next for the Provincial Meet and then Regional... and so on... and of course... the Palarong Pambansa!
The Western part of Cavite is composed of Naic, Tanza, Ternate, Maragondon, Trece Martirez and General Trias.

Reading Harry

I am not ashame to say that I love Harry Potter!!!!! And I am aware that more and more book lovers are getting hook to the Twilight Series. And now, even some HP fans are choosing vampires over wizards and witches! Honestly, I haven't read the Twilight series and they say that it is addictive! Well, as for now, I prefer Harry Potter. Errr... there's no need for the two books to be compare anyway because they are from different genres... But still, I will watch the Twilight movie this November just to satisfy my curiosity. :)

an autobiography (semi)

As the sun spreads its light, as the flowers bloom and a new day has come... a new life has begun.
It was on the 17th of January year 1983, I was born in a small apartment in Rosario, Cavite. My parents, Victor and Vergie decided to named me Vicky, which came after my father. Then after a month, we moved to my father's hometown., General Trias. After five years, my brother Vergel was born and I was already in kindergarten at that time. I actually forced my mother to send me to school because I was so excited and wondered how it feels like to be in school since all my cousins and playmates were already in school.
I stopped school after I graduated in kindergarten because the teacher in grade one did not allow me for I am too young to be in grade one. Then after a year, they finally admitted me although they're still undecided because I'm only 6 years old. It's just so happened that my birthday falls on January, the start of a new year and its hard hen you're the only pupil who was born in the year 1983 and all of them in the 1982. You're always to be considered as the youngest and my teacher even called me as “saling-pusa” and for that, I have to exert effort to be good in my class. Lucky enough, I became the class first honor. My elementary years had been an exciting and meaningful one. I graduated Salutatorian in elementary.
I went to Governor Ferrer Memorial National High School, the main campus of the only public high school in our municipality. I landed on the section one until my fourth year. After high school, like most of my classmates, I also went to college. I took up BS Industrial Education in Cavite College of Arts and Trades but after one semester, I stopped. I stopped because it wasn't really my desired course and school for that matter. I really dreamed of studying in Manila but our financial situation hinders my dream. And so, I opted to study in Cavite and get a course that I'm not really into.
After two and a half years of stagnation, I'm lucky enough to be given another chance to go back to college. My cousin Joanne actually gave me the idea of taking my chance in Philippine Normal University. Luckily, i passed the exams and so do the interview.
My parents supported me financially and morally. I stayed in Normal Hall Dormitory since first year college. I also take up the course that I want and one of the reason why I went to PNU in the first place. Now, I'm in my fourth year in college and still have months left before the graduation and a couple of requirements to be submitted. And yet, I'm looking forward to graduate, get a job and help my family. Now, I'm getting ready to face the real world.

*I made this during College.. (one of our requirements before graduation!) Hayz... ganun pala ako magsulat... look at the grammar... lolz! :)

and yet... I miss it!

memories of fiesta

Me and Bird before we headed to the church to wait for Ma'amAhlyn and Sir Rodel. :)

Ma'am Jallen, Ma'am Dhee and Ma'am Ahlyn

Of course, the famous tokwa't baboy of Ma'am Jallen! hehe! di yan mawawala! :)

Bird, it's your turn! :)

Syempre ako din! Say cheese! :)

Marvin and Honey, the clowns of the crowd! (haha!) tawa lang kami ng tawa ni Bird sa kanila! :)

It's a memorable day, not only that it is the feast of our patron saint Saint Francis of Assisi, but we got the chance to bond again with our former co-teachers in Parochial.. (di nga lang kami kumpleto! hehe..) Inumaga na nga kami eh! haha! Pero ok lang... minsan nga lang naman. We decided to call it a night (umaga na nga yata eh! haha!) @ 11:30pm and I got home @ 12:30 na yata. :)
