To whom much is given, much is expected

When I was in high school, I used to collect all the medals and awards in our school. Be it a quiz bee, on poster making contests, essay writing competitions, journalism contests, and academic excellence awards, I almost got it all. I also joined different organizations like math club, science club, art club, and I even ran and won in student council. High school has been very good for me. I managed to do well during those days, and it gave me the benefit of being known in the school. Yet, believe it or not, my feet remained fastened in the ground.

Yeah, yeah, honestly I really don’t want to brag about this thing. I just can’t think of any good and humble introduction right now. So before any worse things run through your mind, I’ll share a quote to you that goes:

Never explain; your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe you anyway.

Back to the topic. Then when I was about to graduate, I realized that everything would stop in here, that the fame and fortune will, probably, be over. College will be a very different environment. I thought that I have to start all over again. I thought that I’m going to stop in getting achievements. Fear really floated inside me because I’ll have to deal with new different people, all strangers, not even one familiar face. I really thought then that college would be very difficult for me…

But then… to my surprise… everything went okay for me. I entered a course which I really have no concrete idea what it is all about. I know how to use a computer, but the idea of programming, creating software, databases and applications are all foreign concepts to me. But as the years go by, I was able to absorb all the new knowledge quickly. I was able to balance all my abilities in all the major and minor subjects in our course. All things went well. And after the 4 years of consistent hard work, I received a recognition from our department which means a lot to me. I don’t want to be boastful about it, though, but I just want to share that I emerged as the top student in Bachelor of Science of Computer Science Batch 2004 – 2008.

To tell you honestly, I really didn’t expect this thing. I came from the lowest section in our course, though this sectioning in our college has no bearing to the abilities of the students in that section. As I was saying, I really never thought that I’ll rank first in the list. Simply because I believe that there are better computer science students than me. I’m not the best programming student in our batch. I admit it. Though the probable reason why I reached the top is because I was able to excel in all the subjects. I managed to be good in every minor and major subjects that we had, and this was the result of my hard works. But on the negative side of this thing, I’m a little worried on the expectations that it entails. As I said, I’m not the best programming student; perhaps I’m only on the average level of it. But given the fact that you’re on the top of the list, people will probably think that you’re the best. I’m very worried about it.

I’m just very happy that I reached the things that lie beyond my expectations. I’m proud for my self that even in college, I was still able to be good on my studies. I know that this is still not the end of the battle/adventure. It is just the beginning of a much bigger competition.



Should I?

This is one of my oldest compositions. It is inspired by a couple whom I know, but i won’t tell who. Hope you appreciate it, and yeah, it is a song, not a poem

Let go… should i?


couple of years together
in tough and better days
holding hands through any weather
facing what comes our way

you’ve promised me forever
love we feel wont die
our story of ever after
but then it was all lies

what is right?
will i fight?
or free this love,
should i?

walk out a mile,
make you smile,
to let you go,
should i?

when love is so true
you got to set them free
a thought that’s rude
we’re not meant to be


if ever that i do
it’ll end up in this way
leave me hurt and broken down
when you went away


tell me what to do
if i still love you
let go.. is it right?
tell me.. should i?

Harry Potter 7 sliced in two

Harry Potter in two parts

harry potter 7

I recently heard the news that Harry Potter 7, the last installment of the Harry Potter movie series, will be divided into two parts. The first part will be shown on December 2010, while the second part will be on May 2011. I haven’t finished the novel yet, but I heard from my classmates and friends that the last book is really full of important events, and it is really impossible to fit it in a 2-hour movie. It is much better this way, and I’m really excited about it.

Colby Caillat in Manila

Colby caillat

I had the chance to see Colby Caillat performing live in Manila. In case you didn’t know, Colby Caillat is the voice behind the hit ‘Bubbly’ and “Realize’. My classmates and me went to Trinoma last March 12 to see her mall tour in Ayala malls. It was quite a long wait, and we really felt the starvation while waiting for her. And when the show started, we just listened to two songs and decided to leave our place and have our dinner. At least, we saw her, that’s what matters.

David Hernandez being booted out in American Idol

David Hernandez

I’m really disappointed with the result of American Idol last week. David Hernandez, one of the best male vocals in the competition, was voted off in the competition. I personally think that he is not the weakest performer that night, and I truly believe that he deserve to be in the top 5. There was news that it might be because of the rumors about his ‘stripper’ past. But that was unfair for him. But anyway, I think he will still emerge in the Music Industry.

Binibining Pilipinas

janina san miguel

Unfortunately, I catch this show in the television. And I really find it hilarious. And I’m really surprised that she won the title. Personally, I’m not against the contestant. It is okay with me if she messed up in the question and answer portion. I’m not saying that she don’t deserve to win. But the only point is there are other contestants who really deserve it. Anyway, let us just wish her luck. 🙂

Nihongo play, a success

Whootwoot. I’m very happy that our play in Nihongo class was a success! And because of the good flow of the story and the great performances of my group, we emerged as the best group! It was really fulfilling. And I’m happy that it was already finished.

End of classes

aww… this is the end of our college days. And I really feel happy and sad at the same time. I will miss my classmates, and all the treasured memories we shared together inside and outside the school. I won’t forget them… I will miss you guys! Till next time! 😦


This February, I went to…

I’ve been very busy last month. Ending of class is getting nearer so lots of things are being done at school. Lots of different companies conducting job interviews here and there, though still I’m left hopeless. But on the brighter side, we’ve done other enjoyable activities too, which added more treasured moments for my college life.

Every Nation’s Building, Taguig
– We, with some of my classmates, went here to attend an IT Summit prepared by SMART. The event was a spectacle, the speakers were very inspiring, enough to say that we had a lot of fun. There’s a catering service, fun games, and an instant job interview for SMART. Luckily, I passed the initial interview. It was also an opportunity to meet Ms. Roselle Ambubuyog (the intelligent bright little girl-then whom I’ve seen in T.V. many years ago when I was still young) and Mr. Eric Villarama (the husband of the actress Donita Rose).

Market Market, Taguig
– Just besides Every Nation’s Building. We never had the chance to go around the mall coz we’re too tired from walking. We just took some pictures when we were there (for memories’ sake). But truly speaking, it didn’t meet my expectations. 😦 I thought it would be something like S.M., turned out it’s more similar with Robinson’s Galleria. Not bad at all. J

SMART Tower, Ayala
– I went here for my second interview for SMART. Too bad I was so early for my schedule, so I waited outside in the Ayala Avenue while the rain continuously dropped during those moments (don’t worry, nakasilong naman ako hehe). My scheduled floor is at 33rd Floor. When I’m already on the room, I saw the overview of the city, and whoa… yeah, it’s a pretty good view up there. Anyway, the interview went… uhm okay. I guess so.

Zirkoh, Timog
– It was one of my memorable evenings. It was my first time in a comedy bar. We had a free pass courtesy of my friend, Cherrie. Actually, I was still hesitated to come along with them, but then I’m glad I’ve changed decisions. And how’s my experience? All good! (Luckily we ware way too far from the stage). But I must tell you that I’m a little shocked. I never thought that it was like that. We saw Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Philip Lazaro in person. We had a lot of fun that night though.

Star Theatre, Star City
– We watched a ballet show in this theatre. It was a stunning show, very classy, superb moves! I really enjoyed the show so much. It’s really fantastic!

Star City, Pasay
– Well, it’s not my first time, but I had a lot of first time when we went here. It was my first time to ride the Magic/Flying Carpet (See, I lost my memory. I forgot the name of the ride). But I must say it is much better than the Vikings. There are also new rides in Star City and it was my first time to try those new rides. The Surf dance is an h-e-double-hockey-stick ride. I thought it was the end of my life (good thing I survived it). If ever I’ll go there again, I’ll think twice if I’ll try it again. But the Star Flyer (the roller coaster with a twist) is actually the best! I’m so nervous when I was still on the line. But after the ride, I actually enjoyed it! It was not scary at all; I never even closed my eyes. It’s the best ride ever! 🙂

Anong petsa na!?
