College Re-Orientation

A College Re-Orientation was done for the second – fourth year levels on June 28 at the auditorium. As usual the auditorium was not filled up, not even half of the venue. The event discussed about the new management, rules, new faculty and every concern of students. They tortured us because the discussion was very long and it was in time for lunch that everyone was grumbling about being hungry. To entertain myself, I just took photos of stolen shots of some students.



As a requirement in our Music and Art Appreciation class, we have to watch the Jovita Fuentes Vocal Competition at GSIS Complex and here’s what happened.

Arrive the venue 15 minutes before the call time

Never fails me to laugh

Watched Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme at SM Sta. Mesa alone and had fun because Eugene Domingo never fails me to keep on laughing. She is the type of actress that can really do the change of moods all of a sudden with just a snap. She portrayed the three roles very well that you won’t even think that only one person did it. She is very precise on how she act for a certain role.

Kimmy is just like my aunt, her motto in life is WORK.WORK.WORK. They love working everyday and doesn’t even think of resting.

Dora is just like me, happy go lucky person that just follow the flow of life and is always happy of what she is doing.

Charito (mother of Kimmy and Dora) is just like my own mother, who loves her children very much that she would do everything just to save them in any way she can.

The cameo roles were portrayed by big personalities in the industry and seeing them like that was very new to me. Maricar Reyes being Flight Attendant, Slater Young as waiter and many more funny cameo roles.

The special effects was incredible because they really did effort for the editing of the film. Their locations were very nice and it was a good place to visit someday. I really want to visit Korea in the future.

The movie was a bit long but you won’t bore yourself because you will see yourself laughing on every scene. Their properties were for real because of how they took care of it as mentioned in an interview with Eugene.

Congratulations Eugene and Direk Joyce Bernal for having another blockbuster movie that any person would always remember because of its quality.

Senior Year screening

photo credit

Today, I went to the screening of the movie Senior Year and enjoyed the movie. The movie was well written and the characters did a great job. The movie talks about the life of being a senior student, the experiences we have before graduation. The issues about grades, self-identity, relationships, family, college plans, haters and anonymous love letters were part of every high school life and we learn from them. These things make us stronger and learn to stand up on our own. As said in the movie, going to college isn’t entering into an early adulthood but leaving your childhood and immaturity behind. I was struck by these line because up to until this point I still have the attitude of being immature even though I am in college already.  I so missed my high school life way back 2 years ago while watching the film. I could really say that high school is the best years of my life because of the experiences that I had. Thank you to all the people who have been part of my high school life.

I would like to thank Ms. Krissy Cruz for choosing me as her blog giveaway winner for the Senior Year screening.

Here’s the trailer of the movie.


Paco Park presents “Immortal Filipino Duets”

Yesterday, together with Shane, Andrea, Cash and Nery, we went to Paco Park to watch a classical recital entitled “Immortal Filipino Duets”. It was recommended by our professor Polly to watch for our project, review of the recitals we attended.

The said recital was directed by Ms. Maribel Ararao and featured the voice students and alumni of the Sta. Isabel College namely Aimee Ruth Buzeta, Cymbelene Gatdula, Cristina Nibay, Mary Ann Villamor, Mark Elorta, Marissa Francisco, Shiela Manga, John Cruz, Ellen Priela,  Arlene Escultero-Dy, Sarah Francisco and Hubert Tabi.

It was my first time to attend such recital and I had such a great time. The event started at six in the evening and sang 15 songs all through out the night. The songs were performed very well by the best singers.  The venue has a nice ambiance for great singers like them. It was also a nice venue for photoshoots and there is also a nice church. Everyone was in awe with the performance of the singers last night. The singers did a great job on their performance. My favorite performance was the song Sa Ugoy ng Duyan because they did a great version of the said song. I enjoyed every song and their own versions of these Filipino songs.

Here’s a photodiary of last night:
