This has been the best four years of my life. I don’t wanna make a long speech about all the great memories here. They say high school was the best part of their lives but I think college is. It was truly a learning experience.
And now I shall start my journey in becoming a doctor and hope to make the world a better place. Haha. :)
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!
MagkaBIO Tayo is an inter-university contest for biology majors within Metro Manila. It is a quiz show all about Biology. Biology deals with life so you could imagine the scope of the questions asked.
Comgratulations to all the winners! They got medals, a plaque, certificates, and a cash prize. See you next year!

This just in. The UP College of Medicine just released the 200+ qualified students for their interview. The worst part in this process is, only 120 will be accepted. You could imagine the tight competition in getting these slots. And yes, I’m praying and getting my hopes up. Wish me luck. Inspire me.
A typical Sunday at Pedro Gil. Alone.
HAPPY NEW YEAR guys!
2012 is our year.
2012 is when our batch graduates.
2012 is a year where we explore new horizons.
2012, I will get older.
Grad pic. Raw shot. Yeah. I was so desperate and excited I took a picture of the contact prints. :))
I hope this image does not make people unfollow (is this even a word) me. I just want to celebrate the fact that we finally finished 11 weeks of taking care of 42 mice. Yes, that’s a lot! We killed (although sacrificed is a more appropriate term) each one and excised the gut out to get want we wanted for our thesis. Enough talk about thesis, its just stressing the hell out of me.
It’s almost Christmas and a lot of parties are being planned. This is a photo from our last (literally LAST, we’re already graduating this April, and we won’t be seeing each other for a very long time) Christmas party. Instead for just our block, we invited the other Biology block (since both blocks have already been close to each other as compared to the past years). Yeah, same old parties with food and booze. Talking, chatting, screaming, dancing, singing, and basically more of the drinking is what you expect out of a party. The best part is the gift giving and I received two books written by Stephen King entitled Carrie and Needful Things. Thank you Venus for the wonderful gift!
We crashed by Jonathan’s place and look at his nephew (more like a son)! Geoffrey (reminds me of Game of Thrones, Joffrey Baratheon) is so cute! Haha. We watched horror movies till 4AM. it was my request. These people are my closest college friends if you’re asking. And yes, were three pairs of thesis partners. We just can’t leave each other. Haha. Just look at me pouting. Eeesh. Does it suit me? LOL.
Ang kakulitan mo ang mamimiss ko pag grumaduate na tayo! Haha! I’m happy & grateful for your company. Looking forward to more years of friendship an fun!
This is maybe the sweetest or maybe the message that made me teary-eyed this Christmas. I will miss these people. Of course including all my college classmates and friends. I can’t believe that a few months from now, we will be graduating and be alumni of UP. It’s just a great honor. Haha. I can’t believe we survived Biology in UP Manila.
MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS! :)
