Playing the flaneur. I put on my Alice in Wonderland shoes to go down the rabbit hole.
And for this, I receive a gift. A reward of Russian cookies.
I have never attended Parangal sa Mag-aaral. I’ve received this award a number of times as an undergrad. But I took it for granted.
Now, I want to attend it, at least once. So I did.
Fred was an awardee too. Great coincidence.
We even took the traditional shots.
And they took it of me too.
University Scholar for 2nd Semester AY 2010-2011 and 1st Semester 2011-2012. I’m quite proud of it. I worked hard and sacrificed a lot.
1.0 average for two consecutive semesters. Not bragging, just simply happy about it. I found something that I want to do, I have to do. The real certificate is still at the Secretariat, as usual.
ASS (Art Studies Society) orgmate Vera was there as well. She’s a bar passer. Again, another shot, this time, with the College Dean, Elena Mirano.
This would not be fun without supportive friends. Claire and Jeff, LOVE them.
Riding in cars, with Fleetwood Mac.
Italian food and conversations.
Then more Fleetwood Mac.
Coffee and studying at ROC.
And bashing fashion magazines.
Alice in Wonderland and her rabbit hole.
Parangal sa Mag-aaral is an annual ceremony done during College week. This is first and only one I ever attended. I usually just get my certificate after. But I learned that its best not to let experiences pass you by. There is always something more to discover. I had fun.
Congratulations on the award and all that hard work! I’m a teacher and it’s nice to people working hard at something!
Thank you, I really appreciate it. We don’t earn much money, but what we get is so much more rewarding. I’m so happy to hear from a fellow teacher.
I miss CAL! Congrats on your 1.0 average! And I like your dress, its very impressionist!;) Haha.
Hi Sir Jeff!
You should go back sometime! And visit Vargas too! Thank you. And on the dress, its one of my favorites. Jeff was you teacher in undergrad? 🙂
He wasn’t but we always worked under him for the CAL Lantern and DAS Christmas Party and stuff.;)
Btw, the combination of the rain, a soundtrack (Fleetwood Mac, in your case), UP, and car rides with good friends is a so made-for-a-movie-or-novel-type moment that makes you love the little things in life.:)
I miss UP!
Jeff will work on the lantern again this year. He worked on the KAL exhibit too.
And yes, I wanted to write a full article on this one. But when I got the favorite photos together, i just wanted them to speak for themselves. Its one of those near perfect moments you just want to freeze. Which in a way, I did.
UP is one of the best places in the world, really 🙂 I don’t ever want to leave again.
And of course ang bashing ay parating equated sa akin! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha
Of course! Kanino pa?!? Own it! 😀
