I received this package 2 days ago. It’s the shirt I won from Abe’s Tradeport registration thing. It’s a perfect fit. Thanks! :)

Every Tuesdays, my first class is in CAL. I have to spot this jeep right away to go from CAL area to NCPAG for my PA 141 which follows right after my class in CAL. Good luck to me and to all in hunting this jeepneys down! Php 7.00 savings is a lot, when compounded/ added from June to December. :)

Pinoy Dream Academy scholar Rafael Ting, more known as Inaki, is the 13th pick among the 25 “dreamers” (Pinoy Dream Academy scholars).

Only 16 lucky dreamers will get the chance to be included in the Academy and be mentored and taught by only the best - headed by PDA Headmaster Ryan Cayabyab, Voice Master Kitchy Molina, Performance Master Joey Javier and Voice Mentor Monet Silvestre.

Pinoy Dream Academy is a Philippine franchise from Endemol, the brains behind the Big Brother and Deal or No Deal local franchise. It is their goal, with Pinoy Dream Academy, to give “pop star hopefuls a chance to be a step closer to their dream.”

We can follow them at PDA Überture with Host Billy Crawford every 5:30pm Mon-Fri, PDA Primetime with Host Nikki Gil every 9:30pm Mon- Fri, PDA Performance with Toni Gonzaga on weekends at 7:45 PM.

Xavieran Pride! Woot! :) LUCEAT LUX!

One of my org-mates gave me these coke products from Malaysia. 2 more added to my collection. Thanks a lot! :)

First week in U.P. has been very tiring for me. I have met all my professors already, and I think I will enjoy them except for some few who I think will make me sleep? But in any case I am very eager to tackle all my subjects, and hopefully, get high marks after.

One thing is for sure, the first week was hellish. It was my first time to have a 5:30-7:00pm class, and I just commute going home. That’s not good, at all. It’s really, really, really bad! x.x

After 4 straight days of classes, I just feel tired, and I just want to crash on my bed, and sleep for more than 10 hours. But even if I really want to do that, I have other responsibilities to attend to, which wouldn’t permit me to do so.

Moreover, I have a pile of readings I have to finish for next week. Specifically, I have almost 3 inches of PA 141 - Public Policy class - to read and make a 5 page summary of, plus a 10 slides PowerPoint presentation of the important, most significant points in those readings.

To make it much worse, I had a hard time digging through tons and tons of books and papers in the library to get those readings, and the librarian was a little bit too (hmm) unpleasant/nasty today. I thank Reg because she was so patient and diligent in getting the assigned readings. :)

P.S. I’m now poor because of all these papers I have to photocopy!!!

P.P.S. I hate that this practice kills all those trees! I wonder how many trees per day does NCPAG kill because of photocopying requirements. O.o

I was reading through the posts of my contacts in Multiply, when I saw Kog’s “My Week So Far”. Since Kog is an alumni now teacher in Xavier High School, I was curious enough to take a look on how he has been doing “so far”; also, I knew that a lot of new stuff were added to the classrooms, and I just wanted to have a glimpse of what’s new.

Behold and be Amazed — I consider myself privileged to have studied from Xavier, and to have had a good Jesuit education. But I must emphasize that what they have now is like 5-star-hotel compared to our 3- or 4-star amenities before.

Before, we were situated in the Jesuits Residence Wing, where we had our wooden tables and chairs, and 2 air conditioning units. We were luckier back then; the batch after us were transfered to the high school building, where they all suffered/ endured the heat because they didn’t have air conditioning units. After that year, they reconstructed and did a face-lift to the fourth year classrooms. But now, they were successful in implementing the changes to all high school classrooms.

And here is our classroom, H4B, back then at the Jesuit Residence wing. Focus on the second photo — that’s our adviser, Simoneil Mendoza, using the computer with a tv screen inside a “wooden box.”

This is the new classrooms that they have in the high school building. *drum rolls* Now they all have a locker outside the room. (shucks - we didn’t have those!)

They already replaced all the wooden chairs and tables, and gave them plastic. I say I still love the wooden/ natural/ earthy feel to it. Before, our tables had locks/lockers right below the top of the table. You can put your stuff inside; and now, obviously they can’t anymore.

This is what I envy. Grar! They have a screen and LCD projector built in their classrooms (think: DLSU). For more, they have speakers inside their classrooms. To top it all off, welcome to the winter wonderland — better air conditioning system.

Oh I forgot, have I mentioned, Mac Labs! FTW! (for the win) Okay, I’ll stop here, right? *hehe*

I promise this would be the last. Move your attention to the small piece of paper on top of the MacBook. “Gadget Pass” — yes, you’re not dreaming of hallucinating. During our time (not so many years ago), we brought in our digital cameras/ SLRs/ laptops/ video cameras freely. It seems that they cannot do that as much as they want or as freely anymore. Xavier’s probably thinking of “equality among peers,” which I think is just right.
