MARDI GRAS at the Central Colleges of the Philippines!

Last year, I blogged about the schools foundation day although I was quite busy knowing the activities, but since I became more involved with the school this year, we had meetings on how the foundation day will be celebrated and the theme is now MARDI GRAS as it falls near the great celebrations this February. 
The Central Colleges of the Philippines will celebrate its 57th founding anniversary with a lot of activities like battle of the bands, school fair, and a lot of interesting booths! This is one big celebration that you should not miss! I will be posting the schedule of activities in a few days, so tell your friends to visit CCP and have a great party! CARNIVAL!
Remember the date February 10-12, 2011.

Blah Blah Blogs: Ang Tunay na BBB!

Unang una, nais ko sabihin na ang nag-iisa at walang katulad na BBB ay walang iba kundi ang BLAH BLAH BLOGS! Halos malurkey na ang buong blog world dito sa Pinas sa pagsulpot ng issue ng Big Bad Blogger, nung una ay hindi naman siguro kailangang pagusapan pa ang ganitong balita dahil medyo madalas na mangyari na ang  mga ito, ngunit sa pagkakataon na ito, napansin ko sa loob lamang ng kaunting panahon, tulad ng apoy ay kumalat at lumaki na ito hanang nakaabot sa sa iba't ibang sulok. Nahihiwagaan pa rin ang karamihan, kasama na ako sa tunay na Big Bad Blogger (ayokong isulat na BBB dahil blah blah blogs ito, oks lang kahit mag type pa ako ng extra).  


Tila nabulabog ang ang Zodiac universe sa pagsali ng Ophiucus sa horoscope. Pero sa totoo lang, matagal na palang nakapwesto dun ang constelation ngunit hindi na ito na-consider na mapabilang sa super elite group ng zodiac. Ang ibig sabihin ng Ophiucus ay "serpent-bearer" at hawak nito ang Constelation na Seprens. Ngunit kahit kadikit na ito ang iba pang signs ay hindi na ito binilang. 
Kailan lang ito napagusapan muli nang nabangit sa isang pagaaral na nag-'shift' ang posisyon ng mundo sa kalawakan matapos ang ilang dang siglo at dapat na daw ibilang ang Ophiucus sa zodiac. At sa ganitong pangyayari, makaling shift din ang naganap sa zodiac dates at horospope. Pero paliwanag ng mga Astrologers, hindi naman sa posisyon ng mga bituin nababatay ang horoscope at astronomy kundi sa pwesto ng mga planeta na bihira naman magpalit ng pwesto sa labas ng kanilang orbit.
Kung gayunman, nakaktuwang isipin na marami ang nahumaling dito, parang nung isang linggo lamang ay nataranta…

Lyf's Guide to Commuting: Ferry Joy Ride

I love going to new places, however since I'm always busy with a lot of things however I actually got a chance to ride the pasig river ferry service. Yep you heard it right, this ferry goes trough the pasig river. My original location was Intramuros where one station, Plaza Mexico is located. I was very fustrated with the traffic in road at that time and tried to go on a cruise on that ferry service. I was aware that this service is already operational however I never tried to go on board. Well it was really a new feeling knowing that you road is the pasig river. And that one fact is I cant swim, so it was one of my hesistations. But because of the need to go to school I had to take a chance to take the ferry service. I was quite impressed about the station and the ferry itself. a fare of 20 pesos is fair for a student from intramuros to the PUP station.

Traslacion 2011: The Feast of The Black Nazarene

The ageless tradition lives on of the oldest and probably the longest procession in the country happens again in Manila. And today is my 8th year joining the procession. Thank God that the date falls on a Sunday in which I don't have a shift on that day. Most of us would know what happens on this feast, that there will be a lot of people, not just hundreds, not just thousands but millions! This would make manila the most dense place on that day! Amazingly enough that there are people that actually came from near and far provinces. 

The feast of the Nazareno shows faith and prayers can make a difference. I admit that I have never tried to join in the procession walking on my bare feet but I think i will try that on the next years of the feast. This year, I was not able to start the mass at Luneta, but decided to attend mass. It was the most physically challenging mass as I pass through the sea of devotees to get inside the basilica. I took me almost two masses to get in and out of t…

GIRLS! Do Wanna be Discovered?


REEL DEAL: Gulliver's Travels PLUS Scrat's Continental Crack Up!

When you insert Jack Black into a great classic story, the effect is a LOL-a-thon! We have been familiar with the story written by Jonathan Smith centuries ago. And the classic picture of having a man tied up on the beach by hundreds and hundreds of little people called Lilliputians. Though the story is a fairy tale classic, having this one retold with the modern touch is good and absolutely funny.   The setting of Lilliput actually follows the classic traditions and customs, basically Gulliver is the only thing modern. This makes the clash and a lot of laughs with so many things one could relate to. You would definitely like the Royal Family of Lilliput especially the princesses. You could actually learn a classic word from the nobles, something you can add to your vocabulary. I could say it is a family movie since you could realize values with the turn of events. Though if you would compare it to the classic story, it goes to almost a 270 degree turn. I could definitely say that you …

There is Something I Want You to Know about Minute Maid!

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe... there is an exception, there could be a way of having natural juice without adding nasty preservatives... hmmm... I want to take another sip just to sure...
I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I... was surprized with what I have found and feels at ease knowing that what I drink inside is as real as the real fruit itself! I suddenly remembered that through the years I have been drinking preservatives! Now knowing of a healthy option, so its OK to have it everyday!
So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good…

Misa De Gallo Diaries 2010 Day Nine: Long Journey

Day 9: Long Journey 
The last day of simbang gabi was actually the most challenging since I have to search for the last stop for the Misa de Gallo series this 2010. The challenge for me was to find that church in the wee hours of the night as I planned that the final mass should follow the dawn schedule. However, since I do have a shift at 6 am, I need to find a schedule that fits either the 4 or 4:30 schedule to be able to reach the office on time. My first option of course would be the Mandaluyong area but I have explored the nearest parishes and churches in that area. Also St. Francis church in Ortigas masses start at 5:30 am, which is not a good idea. I then decided to go to Makati and check out the churches near Ayala like the Greenbelt chapel but they would start at 5 am. Then also checked the schedules at Don Bosco Makati, it was 4:30 but Makati is along way to go still.  Then I decided to hop to another jeep now going back to Manila and decided to go with Manila Cathedral. Thou…
