earth hour in cdo 2009

Hosting for Earth Hour 2009 was all fun! I got to be with Chevy again and I also got to meet and work with Maxine. CDO did it! The lights were off but the festivities and fun went on and on.

for the last time

The team got to be together for the last time and even if we never got to where we really wanted to be, we were all present and got to appreciate each other's company for the last time for this year.

lazy sunday

I think I'm going to get more of these. I must try to have more lazy days. I had much of Shiro Inu's wet tongue all over my face. The alpha dog wants me to play with him all afternoon. I always find him quite imposing and demanding. I acutally havent done that much research on japanese spitz but this guy can be very noisy and loud. I wish he was as low key as Max, the terrier in the house. But then again, I guess, just like people and their personalities these dogs have their doggienalities I have to deal with.

may the lord bless you

They always say its the bride that looks the prettiest during her wedding. You can really see how happy and radiant a bride is in a very special day in her life. Thank you very much dear Alice for having me in your celebration. I must say it was one of the most intimate and lovely weddings I have been in to.

i know every mile has been worth my while

I would like to grab that line from this batch's graduation song. I would like to think that this year, that is what I felt throughout the school year. These are just some of the snapshots I got from the graduation.

Jessa and Nicole, Chair and Vice -Chair of the Light Cavalry Leadership Community 08-09. It was a pleasure working with both of you.

Mc, thanks for the inspiration and idea (magis welcome remarks) and the music (bagong umaga).

The parent of the awardee, (joke!) Ms. May is the OIC for the department.

My other boss, Mr. Gomez. Thanks for the compliment. Although you always teased me about my career path, you have always been the most sane person in school.

Lera and Jinny are the best buddies to be with (when I just have so much of work).

The four conductors - on tour (you see the vessel at the background? LOL). Thats actually our school.

on vintage

The senior batch invited me to host their graduation ball. I almost wasn't able to come on time because I couldn't get a cab to take me to the venue. I must say the party went well. Anili here was my co host for the night. I took this picture and I think she looks very pretty in this shot (ehem!). Wasn't able to get to many pictures for the night since I wasnt able to charge my camera.

misoy and sy

These were two separate birthday celebrations but both worked as a reunion with the people of Sanvitores and Mayer last year. These were invitations that were not to be missed. Every year I get to encounter different students and this group is pandemonium (kidding!). These guys are fun to be with and I never had a dull moment with them. Kent is back (minus both left and right eyebags)! Fun nights!

the call that will make a change

I was invited by the KASAMA of Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology to judge the 2nd CineArte Digital Short Film Festival. We had to travel early and arrived at MSU at around 9 am and headed straight to the Board Room. Once we arrived, I got a missed call from Manila and my sister told me to contact PAEF before 1pm.

That got me so worried.

I got to review and judge 6 brilliant works from Iligan. I must say, there is defintinely a promise for film production in Mindanao.

I tried to look for a phone I could use during the lunchbreak. I wasnt that familiar with the Iligan scene and I had to rely with calling using my mobile phone. When I called them I politely said that I couldnt use a landline phone because I was out of town. They said they would call me after 1. That was a relief.

And they did. I excused myself from the judging (we were already looking at their trailers) and picked up the call. Dr. Cunanan told me about my being accepted as one of the Fulbright awardee for this year. I thought the words from the other line cam very slow. She asked if I was expecting it. I told her my superiors were. She said the idea must have given me much pressure (of course it did). Instructions were given. I remeber saying yes and thank you as most of my reply.

I never had this much anticipation. When it came, I never knew what to do.

It is happening.

I never thought that iPod could give me so much stress. I had my laptop reformatted (which everyone knows changes your whole life - good thing my trusted tech support was able to retrieve all my files - bless you!) and now it does not recognize my iPod and all the songs in it. It suggested that I sync and erase which I never succumb to (otherwise I would be miserable now). They say its about piracy crap and so I had to research on the net and found forums to help me out with this predicament (even the apple guys had their explanations in more than one page of long sentences - just help me transfer my files! Argh!).

Good thing I was able to get what I wanted (inquisitive me). If you need help, just ask me.
