Monasterio de Tarlac

The main chapel at Monasterio de Tarlac

Last 2009, me and my family went all the way up the mountains of Central Luzon to visit the Monasterio de Tarlac. It was very peaceful and quiet up there and the mass are led by the Monks of the Monastery. The higher altitude gives it a cooler weather.

Together with my Lola, Auntie Neneng, Ate Judy and Choan. We heard mas and took pictures around the Monastery and there were beautiful sites to see anywhere you look. Here are some old pictures taken last 2009

Inside the Monastery Chapel just before the mass

A replica of the Christ the Redeemer of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil was made in the park of the Monastery. It faces the Province of Tarlac from the Mountains of the Monastery. It was huge and looks really beautiful even form behind it.

Ate Judy about 5 years ago. She still looks the same though!

Sometimes, when we look back, we can see the dreams that came true which we did not realize at the time it happened! It teaches us to be thankful to God and also, it makes us realize that if these little dreams came true? Why not the bigger and brighter ones we have at the back of our minds?

Don't stop dreaming!

Forbidden City

The Forbidden City at the heart of Beijing

Last January 9-12, 2013, Another country has been added to my list, another dream came to life! Together with my Dad and my cousin Ate Judy, we went to China. China will always be extra special for us because our grandfather is Pure Chinese. though he is from the south of China, it was still magical to be able to visit his country, and in a way, our country.

I shall be posting more about our China Trip on the coming days but let me start with the first destination we have been to, Forbidden City. Located in the Tienanmen part of Beijing, Forbidden City has been one of the symbols of Beijing and of China. It was the imperial Palace of China during the Ming Dynasty up to the end of the Qing Dynasty. For half a millennium  the palace served as the home for the emperors and the whole of his household.

The Forbidden City has been marked as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 1987. UNESCO listed the site as holding the world's largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world. 

Ate Judy mapping were we are on our way to Tienanmen

The way to the palace is easy from our home in Beijing, the Red Lantern House. With the help of our map, we followed the route all the way to Xidan and then walked our way until we end on a big Major road with a metal barricade. We then headed left until we see the big red walls with many police. The Forbidden City cops are tall, quiet and reserved and they know very few English  But at least, you feel a little bit safer with their presence.

We walked and walk until finally, we saw the Front. It was so cold and chilly even in the middle of the afternoon. But at the sight of the first building in front, it was truly astonishing! As always, it felt like I was in a dream! It was just a picture on my desktop computer but now, with the cold of minus three degrees, I confirmed that yes, I am in Beijing!

There were a lot of tourists both local and foreign taking pictures of themselves together with their family and friends! Some Chinese people are conversing me in Mandarin and I think they are asking me to take their pictures which I cheerfully agreed and took their photos. They were really nice and friendly people.

The guards are standing dutily firm guarding over the palace and looking after the tourists. People were flocking on their way to pass the first gate to get inside. Through the first two gate, it is free until you reach the Meridian Gate. Everywhere you look is picture worthy!

The cold Ate Judy posing for a photo when we got through the first gate

One of the main reasons we went to Beijing on a January is for us to hopefully see snow! For all 5 days we were there, unfortunately, there was 0 snow fall. It was quite sad but experiencing Negative degree temperature was very good enough for me! Maybe it was really not yet my time to see it falling but yes, I did see snow on the grounds! It was slippery as it hardened and started to melt at the heat of the sun.

Beijing really is cold in the Winter but as they call it, the city enjoys a Sunny Winter where the suns rays feel mild and comfortable even in negative temperature. But the nights really are cold, which I LOOOVE! I am always a lover of colder weather than the hot ones we have on Philippine Summers! I Love the Philippines but if I would omit something about life here, it's the very hot Summer nights which is so hard for me personally!

We went through and through and took many pictures until we saw this vendor selling this Thick black People's Liberation Army Hats which I always wanted to have! I talked to him and we got it for 80 RMB. We bought two of the hats, one for me and another for my Dad. But while we were waiting for change for our 200 RMB, the tourist police went straight in front of us and confiscated all the hats being sold by the vendor. It was full of action and I can't help but feel sorry for the guy so I did not get the change. I don;t know if it was a front by the vendor and the police but well, I got the hats so Yey!

Me at the Meridian Gate wearing my PLA Hat.

Oh! Here's a little something about my outfit. I was wearing a cotton undershirt inside my Navy Terranova woven long sleeve cardigan which I got from SM MoA. The gray scarf was also from Terranova and the thick trench coat I wore all five Beijing days is from Esprit. I was wearing black leather work-boots and my favorite brown leather bag which carried most of my things including my Niko the camera which was really heavy. And of course, will I forget this cool looking PLA Hat which I got there at Forbidden City?

We paid an entrance fee at the Meridian Gate of 30 RMB each and went inside the gates. There I did my Travel dance video using my late iPod Touch where the remaining photos of the Forbidden City trip was in. Oh my I miss my iPod :( So we went on and on and visited two more gate until we decided to get back to the front  and go back home for dinner.

The place is so beautiful and that time of the day where the sun is starting to set. The shadows were full and the faint gleam of the sun makes the beautiful reds, beiges and browns glow like it was the Ancient times. I feel like I am on the actual set of Chinese Movies set on olden times during the days of the Dynasties.

Daddy very cold on a bridge leading to another gate inside the Forbidden City

Coming to Beijing was really a dream! Well, everything about the places I travel is always a dream but there at Beijing, it was extra special. Seeing the country where my Ancestors once were at living and fighting for their lives to survive is just awesome to think. While I was there, the magic was so alive that even I was just a quarter Chinese, I feel so connected to that place even if I don't speak the language nor I look like them much. It was a connection that only me and Beijing can ever explain, something that I will treasure for a lifetime!

Some people say, those who have been there, that Beijing people are not that friendly or even at times, rude. But for me, I did not have my share of those Beijing people because each and every Beijing local I talked to, bought to was nice and warm. Though they are not as friendly as the Filipinos, their heart are pure. They may not smile at you usually or even look at you, it was the product of their daily battles in life which made them stronger and wiser as they are today!

A salute to the Chinese people! A salute to the citizens built through honor and respect! I will truly be honored that a quarter of my blood is as red as the flag of China where people are strong at will but with hearts pure. I don't know at the moment if I will ever set my feet back to this beautiful city, but one thing is for sure, I will do my best to make that happen!

Many more dreams to come true!

I will always love you - BCS and BIT Batch 2013

For this Academic Year 2012-2013, I was assigned to teach the subject Professional Ethics. This course is taken by graduating students of BCS and BIT courses and I handled six sections out of all eight CS and IT seniors. I am mostly assigned to major subjects of the upperclassmen and it has been a good thing for me since I get to jive with all my students especially and even if they are close to my age!

They graduated just a week ago, and I, I really do start to miss each and everyone of them! We may say that they are just around, most of them, just a message or a wall post away from facebook but the fact that they left the school just pinches my heart a bit. So to all my students, I may not have said goodbyes this year just as I traditionally do it for the last two years for my graduating students but here's a little more to tell:

To all my students, Thank you all so much for being part of my school year and thus, part of my life! A semester or even a year or two is just so short for people to get along and be called as friends but for me, it is always a magical thing to be "in love" with my students and it happens in just three or four meetings! People always tell me how blessed or lucky I am that I have such loving students and that they love me so much! Lagi naman akong napapatanong sa sarili ko kung totoo nga kaya? Kasi mahirap maniwala nalang sa mga sabisabi ng hindi nanggagaling mismo sa mga taong involved, in this case, mga students ko! Pero natutunan ko na maraming bagay ang hindi na kailangan pang sabihin dahil minsan, sa simpleng pagsasama, makikita mo na ang nilalaman ng pagkatao ng bawat isa kaya naman sa mga texts, messages, bati, greeting ninyo, lalo na yung mga very friendly na students, napapasabi ako sa sarili ko ng "Ay gusto nga siguro talaga ako ng students ko"

Kahit na palagi akong mataas at Outstanding sa bawat Student Evaluation ko, hindi ko padin maensure na gusto nga ako ng mga nagiging students ko! Manhid epek ba? hahaha hindi naman ako kasi ang taong hindi mahilig magassume! Pero siguro nga hindi nalang kasi sa words eh, numbers nadin ang nagsasabi eh! Siguro yung love din ng students ko ang dahilan kung minsan mababa ako sa Peer Evaluation ko na galing sa ibang faculty member! Siguro naiinggit sila kasi mahal na mahal ako ng mga students ko! HAHAHA JOKE! Pero baka diba? Kasi lagi nalang ako mababa sa Peer kahit ang bait bait ko naman!

Kaya naman every end of the semester mula pa man nung kaunaunahan kong semester, Parati kong pinagsusulat ang mga students ko sa isang maliit na papel ng maikling sulat para sa akin! Yung iba malanobela at talaga namang nakakatuwang basahin! Meron namang iba na ilang pangungusap lamang pero di pwedeng di ako kikiligin at matotouch! Mula sa puso kong nababalot ng liempo at leching kawali, maraming maraming salamat sa inyo students!

Bago tayo maghiwahiwalay, isa munang huling hirit mula kay Sir Que! Para sa bawat section na nahandle ko! Kung binabasa mo ito at kabilang ka sa Batch na ito, hanap hanap din ng section mo! May message ako para sa inyo!


BCS41! Ang isa sa pinakamabait kong sections at pinakatahimik to the point na ayaw nadin magrecite kahit alam yung sagot sa tanong ko hahaha! Pero sobra yung tuwa ko talaga nung nakita ko yung BCS41 sa Plantilla ko or yung Faculty Load ko bago magstart yung semester kasi kilala ko na kayo at isa pa, alam kong mababait kayo! Kahit na half lang yung nahandle ko sa inyo sa JAVA class natin noon, everyone is so nice to me kapag napapasub ako kay Maam Azey! Nagpapasalamat akos a Diyos kasi nagkaroon ako ng time na makabond kayo especially yung Tropang One-D kasi sila yung mga nahandle ko noon sa Java and also, yung tropang White Profile noong Exhibit ng Thesis nyo! Grabe yung tinawa ko dun na wala na akong pakialam kung mapagalitan tayo sa lakas ng bunganga ko kakakatawa sa pagokray natin sa mga pictures sa portal! Maraming salamat sa bawat isa sa inyo! Napakababait nyo sa akin! PS Congratulations Roder! Sobrang nakakaproud ka Roder kasi hindi ka lang matalino, napakabait mo pang bata kaya sobrang deserve mo yung award! pareho kayo ni Jailah! I will always be proud na nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na maging student ko kayo!


BCS42! how can this section be any more Special to me? Eh three batches ago, kami yan eh! Kami yung BCS42! Pero alam nyo, masasabi kong decendants namin kayo hindi lang dahil sa name ng Section eh! Kasi sa lahat ng sections na naggraduate this batch, sa inyo ko pinakanakikita yung sarili ko! ayee! Sa inyo ko nakikita kung saan pinakanapapabilang yung sarili ko bilang isang estudyante! Ang term ko nga sa inyo is "Tamang Timpla" Magulo pero nasasaway at nasa lugar! Matatalino pero hindi Dull! Maingay pero pala recite! Mga artistahin pero di mayabang (Pati ba naman yun) Naku tama na! Mamaya kakadescribe ko sa tradeoffs na yan mapunta na tayo sa Trade-off ng Ease of Use at Increased Security! Basta sobra akong masaya at naging students ko kayo kahit na pachugi na kayo sa La Salle! 

Sayang lang kasi sobrang iksi lang ng pagsasama natin, talagang isang Sem lang! Hindi ko kayo mashado nakabonding! Pero salamat kina Rinni, Essa at Kamil na nakasama ko tumambay sa school nung may paexam ako! Doon ko nasabi na mababait pala ang BCS42 at makakasundo ko! Nakakapanghinayang yung pagkakataon na naibigay sa akin at sa section nyo na sobrang iksi! Ang laki pa naman ng potential ko sa inyo (Wow relasyon?!) I mean, mas magiging kaclose ko pa sana kayo given more time kasi sobrang "ako" talaga "kayo" at "ako" ay "kayo"! Gets nyo? Lalo na nung nabasa ko na yung mga letters nyo sa akin grabe nakakatouch na kahit yung mga hindi mashado nagsasalita sa room na nakakaworry baka natutulog na ng dilat sa class, ang gaganda ng sinabi for me! Ah Basta! Pero ok lang yun hindi pa naman dito nagtatapos ang lahat eh diba? May nagsulat pa nga sa akin sa 41 na nakakapagtampo daw kasi mas favorite ko kayo sa kanila! Hahaha Napaisip tuloy ako totoo nga ba? Basta magkikita pa tayong kasi ipapapatent pa nga namin ni Rist yung Scream Pose namin! Thank you very much BCS42, Mahal na mahal ko kayo! Kayo ang nagpasaya at nagbigay kulay ng semester ko na nagdaan!


Hindi ko man kayo nahandle sa Ethics class, naging napakabait kayo sa akin lalo na nung nahandle ko yung half ng class nyo sa VB.NET nung third year kayo! Kayo ang section na masayahin pero magagalang! kapag naguusapusap nga kaming tropa sa CSD, lagi naming sinasabi na "ay BIT41? Very warm yang mga batang yan! Napakabait! Kahit saan ka makita nyang mga yan babatiin ka nila!" At totoo talaga yan! Kahit saan nyo ako makita, ginigreet nyo ako! Maaring napakababaw na bagay nyan pero para sa guro na kagaya ko, doon naipapakita ng student ang galang at kabaitan nito! Nung kinunan nga yang picture na yan sa UP, tuwang tuwa ako kasi sina Kathleen at Jayson ang kasama nyo sa picture talaga jan pero may tumawag sa akin na "Sir! Suplado naman picture naman kayo kasama namin!" Sa totoo lang natuwa ako noon kasi hindi ko naman kayo lahat nahandle pero tinrato nyo akong isang teacher nyo kaya mula sa puso ko, maraming Maraming salamat BIT41!


Sa pinakatahimik kong class, BIT42, pero dito parati nanggagaling yung mga Top students ko sa lahat ng sections! Kasama pa si Jailah eh saan ka pa poporma nyan! Kampante ako sa klase na ito noong mga unang araw ng First Sem kasi nahandle na kayo at favorite kayo ni Sir Jayson! Hangang sa natapos ang semester, never ko natandaan na nanaway ako or napasigaw ako sa pagsaway sapagkat lahat kayo ay behave at talagang mababait na bata! Kahit na konti lang kayo, napasama naman sa inyo yung mga lower years na napakababait din kaya swak na swak! Kayo ang last subject ko noon kaya nakakauwi ako ng walang stress! Maraming salamat BIT42!


BIT43! Well ano pa nga ba? Aaminin ko na kayo ang isa sa sections sa history ng teaching ko na nakapagpasakit ng ulo ko ng bonggang bongga! Hahaha Napakaingay, magulo at may ga matatalinaw pa! Akala ko noon super ayaw na ayaw nyong lahat sa akin! Pwera nalang nung nakausap ko noon si Jed na sabi nya hindi naman nyo daw ako ayaw hahaha. Pero alam nyo, may isa pa palang "pinaka" ang BIT43, isa kayo sa pinakaSWEET na section na nahandle ko lalo na sa last meeting natin, Grabe muntik na talaga ako maiyak nun kasi hindi ko ineexpect yung ginawa nyong way ng pagpapasalamat sa akin! Kahit na magugulo kayo, ang ilan sa pinakamababait na students ko, ay matatagpuan sa listahan nyo hahaha kaya maraming maraming salamat BIT43! Hindi ko kayo makakalimutan!


BIT44! Hindi ko na ikukwento yung mga huling meetings natin, alam nyo na yan! Hahaha pero don't worry, ok na sa akin ang lahat lahat! Sana ay wala naman sumama ang loob sa akin, nasaktan lang talaga ang sir noon (Wow nagdrama na naman) Pero kagaya nga ng sabi ko, ok na sa akin ang lahat! Nagenjoy naman ako na turuan kayo kasi palarecite din kayo at matatalino! Maraming maraming salamat lalo na sa mga naging talagang mabait sa akin kahit after ng sem na naging students ko kayo! Sana maapply nyo lahat ng naituro ko sa classroom hindi lang yung lessons natin kundi yung mga bagay bagay na wala sa books! God Bless you all BIT44!


Grabe paano ko ba ito sisimulan, BIT46, ang isa sa pinakaespesyal na sections sa puso ko hindi lamang sa dalawang semester na naging student ko kayo kundi sa buong kasaysayan ng pagtuturo ko! Nasasabi at nararamdaman ko ito siguro nadin ay dahil sa nangyari noong 3rd year kayo na grabe! Kapag naalala ko yun, hindi sumasama yung loob ko bagamat sumasaya pa ako lalo kasi bigla ko namang maalala yung way ng pagsosorry nyo GRABE! Napakasweet noon kaya naiyak talaga ako! Yung itsura palang ni Caraig at Altis sa Pintuan GRABE pwede ng pang batang lansangan sa teleserye kasi di pwedeng di ka maawa may hawak pang papel na may nakasulat! Pero syempre nung time na yun, naiiyak ako, ngayon nalang ako natatawa kapag naalala ko yung itsura ni Kulot! Pero saan ka pa pagpasok ko ng room patay pa ang ilaw at may nagbubulungan! Pagbukas ko ABA! NAKAPYRAMID PA ANG MGA LOKO! may hawak pang tagiisang papel na may letters ng Sorry Sir Seven! Grabe dun na ako pinakanaiyak! Natatandaan ko pa noon, evaluation ata din yugn araw na yun kaya ang tagal ko sa labas mugto mugtuan pa yung mata ko! Tapos pagpasok ayun sermon at ityakan na naman! Dun lang ako naiyak na hindi lang ako yung umiiyak kaya sobrang touching yung araw na yun! Nung nakita ko nga si Mutya na umiiyak nadin sa unahan ko sabi ko ay tama na nga sermon ko naiyak na si Mutya hala! hahahaha

Pero alam nyo ba kanina lang tinitingnan ko yung resulta ng bawat evaluation ko mula 2010, sa isang section lang nangyari na naka 4.9+ ako na score at sa inyo pa yun kahit after ko na kayo sermunan ng bongga! Narealize ko na hindi mali or sayang yung pagpapangaral ko sa inyo datapwat tinake nyo pa yun positively and for the betterment of yourselves kaya nung second class na natin, Ethics, Wala na tayong ginawa sa classroom kundi maghalakhakan every meeting tapos after pa ng class derecho chismisan na papuntang COS! Parati nyong sinasabi, kagaya pa sa Video Tribute Surprise na ginawa nyo nung Last meeting natin na "Kahit na hindi kami ang favorite section mo Sir..." Pero kung pwede ko lang kayo pagbebeltukan isa isa eh kasi sa Batch na ito, hindi ko ikakaila na KAYO ang favorite section ko! Sa ginawa nyo palang Video para sa akin, pak na pak na eh! ipasok mo pa yung fact na kayo ang pinakaWILD na section! Wild talaga prang animals HAHAHA PS Wag magseselos yung iba kasi Mahal na Mahal ko naman kayo lahat ng sections ko this batch eh :D Tama na nga magnonobela na naman ako dito pagtatawanan na naman ako nina Joanne! CHEERS BIT46! At PS2, SUNGA! Nagiisa ka at wala kang katulad mamimiss kita ng sobra!!!

Hangang Dito na lamang aking mga minamahal na Students ng Batch 2013! Sayang hindi pa ibinigay sa akin yung BIT45 para grand slam ko na talaga tong Batch nyo! Pero kung may makakabasa nito na BIT45, CONGRATULATIONS! Sayang di nyo ako nakilala at natikman (eew!)

Basta parati nyong tatandaan na kahit saan man kayo mapunta at mapadpad ng hangin ng tagumpay, nawa ay huwag nyo makakalimutan ang isang Sir Que na napakapogi at napakaHot! HAHAHA Kasi ako, hinding hindi ko kayo malilimutan! Kahit naka 1000+ na students na ako in 3 years, hindi ko kayo malilimutan kasi may parte na ang bawat is asa inyo sa puso kong tumitibok sa kulo ng mantika! Seriously, I am your teacher and forever will be your teacher kahit hindi na kayo enrolled sa class ko. Ganun ako maging teacher eh, kasabay ng pagiging parte nyo ng taunang class list ko, may kapares ng kontrata yun sa puso ko na magiging kaibigan nyo ako habang buhay! Sana ay hindi nyo ako malimutan kagaya ng parati kong sinasabi sa inyo! Mahal na mahal ko kayong lahat at kapag maisipan nyong dumalaw sa school, sana isa ako sa maging dahilan ng pagbalik nyo! Dahil ikasisiya ko talaga yun ng todohan! Yung saya na level ng Plane ticket para sa akin! I will be there waiting for you, each and every given day, for someone, even just one of you to drop by and say hello! I will always love you all and forever will!

Go on and do your thing! Make yourself and your family and friends proud but ALWAYS REMEMBER, MOST IMPORTANTLY, Make your COUNTRY proud! Kailangang kaialngan kayo ng PILIPINAS! Hindi ko naman sinasabing huwag kayo magabroad kasi kahit naman magabroad kayo, malaki ang maitutulong nyo sa Bansa! Basta lagi nyo lang sana isasali sa mga plano nyo ang PILIPINAS kasi karapatdapat natin siyang mhalain at Ipagmalaki! Kayo ang dahilan kaya naniniwala ako na darating din ang oras natin, ng bansa natin at tayo naman ang titingalain! kayo ang magiging susi nyan mga makabagong kabataan! Hindi na ako magugulat kung galing sa sections na ito ang susunod na Presidente ng IBM or Director ng Microsoft sa Asya or might as well, Pangulo ng Pilipinas! Glaingan nyo ah!

Laging nagmamahal
Sir Que / Sir Steve / Sir Seven

Manaoag's New Clothes

Last Monday, my dear friend Kathleen told me about her new sewing machine and how she is so happy about it! She sewn so many clothes for herself, bags, and even clothes for her saints. So I asked her if she can make a dress for our saint, Our lady of Manaoag since she hasn't had new clothes for a very long time now. She is one of our family's patronesses because she is my Mother's favorite Saint!

So Kathleen agreed! She bought the Felon fabric from Kadiwa market in Dasma just near our University. Felon is the fabric used as inside lining for the clothes of the saints to make it harder and have a good form. Then when I got home Monday evening, I got the clothes Manaoag last wore, which were clothes for my Kuya Erson's Saint in the States which he lent Manaoag. Then I got her Blue fabric from Kuya Erson as well which I decided to use for her veil. Then Kuya Wilson got this beautiful Orange Velvet fabric from an old box and I brought them all to school!

Together on Tuesday morning, me and Kathleen started cutting the patterns and the fabrics so that when she gets home she can start sewing them all which she did that night! The length of the dress was just an estimate since the dress from Kuya Erson's saint is much longer! So after a whole night of hardwork from the talented seamstress Kathleen, here is Our Lady of Manaoag and her new set of clothes

Our Lady of Manaoag and her New Set of Clothes

The Dress itself together with the clothes of the baby Jesus is made of Orange velvet fabric from Kuya Wilson. The Silver lace trimmings at the end of the seam of the dress are from Kathleen herself which added much detail to the dress. And the veil that extends up to the bottom is made up of soft blue metallic fabric from Kuya Erson. I don't really know the name of the fabric but it is beautiful even for gowns and dresses I think. This is the First time our Manaoag wore a veil as big and as grand as that one.

Dressing Manaoag is always Challenging because of all her ornaments and as always, the biggest challenge for me is sticking the baby Jesus on her body! Sometimes no matter how beautiful the dress is, if you don't know how to wear it to the saint, it will look tacky! But I asked for Manaoag's help and I personally think I did a great job placing all the ornaments and pinning this and that over the whole ensemble!

Manaoag on her Altar

I have never seen Manaoag as beautiful and as pretty! Thank you so much to my dear friend Kathleen! She has always been so nice and so supportive in everything I do as we are of her! She is probably the most talented friend I ever had! May God bless her with more projects and fabrics (just as she wants) and successes in life!

OUR LADY OF MANAOAG - Pray for us!

Never Stop Dreaming!

Term 3 Grades

My Computer Architecture Grade was tad low because I was short of 2 points to make it to the 2.5 Mark! So I was really anxious! I need to get at least 3.0 on my other subject, AUTOMATA which made me so nervous! When our Professor Emailed us about the Grades that are uploaded, the Portal went down!

Thank you Lord!!!

PS Yah, my Comp Arch grade was Low :( But My AUTOMATA Grade SAVED me! My Term GPA made it and I can reapply again for Scholarship which is most important! ANIMO LASALLE!!!
