Well...many things happened but i just want to share the most important things that occurred.
Well, i didn't actually had a plan of celebrating my birthday that's why I decided to join my organization (Economics Society) for an outreach program at Shepherd of the Hills Children Foundation at Camp 7, Baguio City.
The children over there were either orphans or the ones whom their parents are unable to raise anymore. This is a safe and nice place for them.
This project was a joint project of EconSoc and ISIP (Integrated Students in Psychology). We brought some food and played some games to make the most out of this event.
And after that tiring but memorable experience, we went to McDo and had some Sundaes and Fries... It was indeed a day worth remembering.
Before the day ended, my mom and my brother had a surprise visit for me. We went out that night and watched the fireworks display at SM. Then my mom cooked some food for me and my friends at my boarding house as a post-birthday celebration..
So so nice!

First day of December…the month I love the most.
Along the this month’s influx are the events that I’ve been waiting for and wishing to be celebrated with nothing but pure excitement and fun. Among these occasions are:
THE OPENING OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON IN THE SCHOOL
December 3 [tentative date]
(signaled by the lighting ceremony and a short program early in the night at the Oblation grounds)
THE PASIKLABAN in U.P. BAGUIO, or simply PASIK
(the program that starts from a school parade which turns out to be a Session Road and the city district invasion; the anticipated OBLATION RUN; fireworks display night; teacher’s performance – where most of our professors perform like you’ve never seen them before; banda performances all night; and party like there’s no tomorrow! Well, words wouldn’t really be enough.)
(Unfortunately since I’ve been to college, I wasn’t able to complete the simbang gabi anymore - primarily because during these times, sleep late at night because of tons of schoolwork given to us. Plus the fact that it’s so, so cold here in Baguio during this month, given that masses are held at dawn. But now, I will try to rise from my bend and see if I can complete it again this year.)
(One of the happiest days of the year – the birthday of Jesus. Well, iba ang Pasko sa Pilipinas eh. Noong bata pa kami, of course, mas marami pang handa kasi we still had relatively less expenses by those times. Eh ngayon, 3 kaming nasa college tapos Grade VI yung bunso. But we still keep our best in celebrating this day with a brighter attitude year after year. We’re just happy with the fact that we are always complete during this day. And that is one thing to be thankful about.)
I’m sure that this would be a busy month for a junior like me as well. Maraming requirements na tatapusin before the Christmas break. But I hope I can manage myself good enough. Kaya kailangang magsipag. Kailangan ding magtipid kasi time for gift-giving (though it’s not the value of the gift that would matter, it would still be the thought of giving).
Sana, di na lang matapos ang month na ‘to. Well, just praying that this month will be filled with joy. Naturally, di mawawala ang pressure in the things that we are doing but I hope that the outcomes would compensate the hard work and every bead of sweat sacrificed on those things. And looking forward to a better new year ahead.

My first class was Soc Sci 197. Our Prof, Ma'am Lelet, just introduced herself and gave the requirements for the class. It was also an SOP during first days to give our classcards, and that was it. We were dismissed early.
Next class will start by 1 pm. Econ 171.
So i have to go and eat some lunch first.
Since class just began... there would be less time for blogging.

- Advising (matagal kasi and daming inadvise ng adviser namin)
- Getting Form 5
- Back to our adviser
- Checking and Assessment (ang haba-haba-haba na pila!!)
- Payment (ok lang kasi madaming representatives)
- Queue for Classcards

I'm still feeling nervous about my thesis proposal. Hope to handle this semester well.
So yesterday afternoon, I travelled back to Tarlac for a few more days of rest before another sem of academic battle.I'll be travelling back on Monday. Class starts on November 17. Oh no. The days are flying. Prayers are deeply appreciated. Thanks!~

These pictures were taken during Sir Scott "Popoy" M. Saboy, our instructor in Humanities 1, was giving his evaluation for our final performance which was a stage play, by the way. Good to say that he said that what was performed was not what he expected, but we surpassed his expectation.

thanks to everyone who prayed.
Food supply is once again becoming stable. Yet, some prices remain relatively high due to what happened. Many of our faculty and the university administrative staff went off on a Relief Mission to the affected areas after collecting and packing the relief goods to be distributed.
What I'm, facing now is my dilemma on all of my exams, papers, presentations and other requirements. I'm having an exam tomorrow morning in Econ 121 (Monetary Economics). Then the rest of the day would be spent in class practice. On Sunday, we will conduct our final presentation on our Humanities class. On Monday, I have my Econ 141 (International Economics) exam plus another paper due.
I hope I would be able to go home on Monday of Tuesday.
I really wanna go home.
I miss the food, the sleep, the Internet, everything about my home.
But before that, I wish my trip home would be trouble and danger-free.
I'm still scared of how the main roads look like.
Another batch of prayers for this.
(Sorry I wasn't able to reply on comments. Academic obligations first. Thanks! )

The heavy rain and strong wind caused many provinces to sink not only in flood but with a thick mass of mud as well. Many landslides also occurred here at Baguio killing hundreds of people.
Classes were suspended until Wednesday by the City Mayor I think. But when I entered our university, tons of donated clothing and other stuffs. The bad thing is that rescue operations are a bit difficult due to the serious damage of the roads.
Another problem that we're facing here is the food shortage. People are being in panic because of what's happening. Prices of good like veggies also tripled even in the market. My housemate said that some food stores at SM are closed as well.
But my biggest problem is my way back home. The Kennon Road is the only passable way so far, but only light vehicles can pass. Hope they can fix Marcos Highway and Naguilan Road soon. I wanna go home and take some rest. I've been planning my sembreak since last month. But if they won't be able to fix the road, I guess I have to stay here longer. It's better that way than risking my life.
By the way, one instructor in school, Sir Ben Muni, and other friends helped some affected areas here at Benguet. He said that it was totally disorienting. Good thing, they were able to raise around Php25,000 yesterday so they were able to buy some cavans of rice, medicine and other basic needs. He said that there was an overflowing clothes donation and at this time, rice and medicine and blankets are what the people need. Some areas, he said, are difficult to reach but they were still trying their best.
This is such an devastating event. Why is this happening to us?
Hope there would still be more help for those who really need them.
Let's pray for our other countrymen.
And hope this thing won't happen again.

I found these pics interesting so i posted it on my page. These were commented on me by a contact on Tagged.
This just show how talented and creative people are. We all have our own ways of expressing ourselves through art. And i think is is one nice shot!

And just a few moments ago (around 11am today), I received a message from my Mom telling me to text my Dad because he got a new phone. Haha...
I already texted him. Kaso di pa nagrereply eh.
I think I have to wait more minutes. He doesn't like texting much. He prefers calls. Rich!
It's good to be back.
I've been very busy due to loads of school works (exams, papers, reporting, duty).
Hope you all continue visiting my page. Thanks!
