UPM Indayog Summer Dance Workshops!
Saying Goodbye… UP Manila Indayog Dance Varsity
Thank you Indayog for making my two years in college very… I don’t know. I just can’t find the words to express my gratitude to this dance organization. Indayog has taught me a lot and has helped build my character not only as a dancer but a student, a son, a person, and a son of God. I know that I may not have the closest friends in this group but I still felt that I became part of a family. A family that supports all its members and a family who has molded me into a better person. I may not have shown any emotion during the time when we bid ourselves goodbye (outing sa Laguna) but I will assure you that my heart was already crying inside.
Indayog has taught me to be strong. It has taught me to never show any weakness. It taught on how to have control. This cannot only be applied in terms of the technical aspects of dancing but in real life as well. This is one core value of Indayog: DISCIPLINE. It made me realize that without any discipline, you break easily. If I would translate it to Filipino, TIBAY NG LOOB kung baga.
I would like to apologize. I think I was not good enough for all of you. Indayog was teaching me to prioritize what’s important and to manage time but it seems I failed in doing that. This is the reason why I lacked training or I would not show up in the studio. I guess it was my fault because my studies and Indayog were trying to step on each other’s way. And because of this, I never had the relationship of what other members have to other members. I am sorry JANZY AND KATE for not being a good “kuya” or role model. I am sorry that I never really showed my all out support when you were trainees. I am so proud of you two. You two have grown into great dancers.
I am jealous sometimes. I am not even as attached to my fellow batchmates, Batch LABINLIMA IMBA. I love you batch, I am sorry that I never showed that. Nakakainggit ang mga pinagsamahan niyo sa isa’t isa. I am really missing out a lot. I am still thankful for being part of this batch. Kahit di niyo na ako i-kuya okay lang. Pero ginusto ko talaga na i-kuya niyo ako, kaso nasanay na kayo na tawagin akong LOMA eh.
It’s all my fault why I never had the CLOSE friends. I still think that were just acquaintances. I can’t even talk to anyone for more than 5 minutes because we would both feel awkward.
Well, it’s to late to change all that.
I just want Indayog to know that I AM REALLY THANKFUL.
THANK YOU INDAYOG. From the bottom of my heart.
Kung pwede lang umiyak sa harap niyo, ginawa ko na kaso nakakahiya eh.
Good luck on your future endeavors and I know that the next batches would bring a lot of pride to this FAMILY. Remember to stay humble and to GOD BE ALL THE GLORY.
Dum! Dum! Dum! Just Dance!
Every year, the UP Manila Biology students hold BioNight at the end of the academic year. This would be my first and last BioNight. This is so sad.
It is true. I do have many friends. Haha.
This is part two of my birthday celebration. I would never forget my friends in UP Manila Biology. They’re the best friends you can have. I love birthdays because of one reason: CAKES!!! Cookies and Cream ice cream cake from DQ tastes like heaven. Haha. :)

Dr. Enrique Tayag
We were very desperate for an interview and it seems Ramon Bautista and Andy Eigenman did not reply to our request for an interview. Luckily, we were hitched with a famous public icon, DOH Assistant Secretary Dr. Enrique Tayag. Dr. Tayag is very famous with the media where he promotes DOH projects and he is the one who attends press conferences and appears on magazine covers. LOL.
I was star-struck at first because he was really white (because he has vitiligo). We were hesitant because we set our minds thinking that this man is a highly respected government official. It turned out that he was a very funny person but at the same time he takes our interview questions seriously and answers them very well. The interview did well according to our professor who watched the video.
I can’t post the interview since Dr. Tayag requested not to post it. I don’t know why.
I like how our professor comments on the video. Haha.
A Panel Discussion
This is a requirement for our communications class. I had fun doing this project especially with my groupmates. Haha.
Our topic tackles on sustainable mining in the Philippines. Yes, we’re talking about a serious issue here. LOL.
If you’re curious about the topic or just curious how we discuss things,
