100 Green Years.. and a lot more ahead :)

My Alma Mater just turned 100 years today. What a milestone. :)


I still remember the day we paid for the reservation fee for DLSU. I wasn't really that decided to go to DLSU just yet but it was a good option to have. I wanted to go to UST, primarily because Mama, Papa and my sister were alumni of UST. We all grew up thinking we'll graduate from the same university our parents came from right? Plus I wanted to be a doctor when I was younger, so UST was the obvious choice. ADMU was also on my list, it was close to home plus I'm pretty sure I'll have friends there and most of them will be from the 'north', really convenient. In the end I chose DLSU.. took up Computer Studies/Science, majored in Computer Engineering and met the greatest group of people ever and created unforgettable memories. :)

So if you ask me now if I think I made the right choice? I won't deny that sometimes I still have certain what-ifs I'd like answered, but most definitely I love being a La Sallian and I thank DLSU for all the lessons learned, friendships discovered, and for seriously teaching me about dealing with life in general. Everything happens for a reason, and ending up spending my college years in DLSU was worth risking all those what-ifs. :)

I bleed green. :) ANIMO LA SALLE! Hail hail hail! :)

CARPE DIEM!

natawa ako sa linya mo na "i bleed green."

ako naman cza, i deliberately did not take exams sa la salle, as i felt it would be an extension of my high school (CSA). feeling ko dun din pupunta maraming augustinians. i wanted a breath of fresh air! He he! kaya sa UPLB ako bumagsak. and yes, i believe i was put there for a reason! :)

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.


I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...


Exploring the resort..




I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....




The Bontoc Musuem!









Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)



So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
