Last night, ACTM had its Seniors’ Sendoff: Take (it) Off! It’s not a super official project of the org (but I think it should be. Haha!) which we started planning for a few weeks ago. It’s funny because the idea started last year when some of the senior EB would tell us how nice it’d be if we threw a sendoff. Haha!
Vic, Trisha, Nikki, Isabelle, Bit
The girls again with Ap, Dennis and (insert name here) Haha! Didn’t get his name!
The Freshmen! Mikko, Josh, Cheska, Andrea and the diva, JR!
Kim, Trisha and Jackie! Super happy that Jackie is now into photography!
Hans, Mindy, Iyay, Kim and Dennis!
Of course, incoming president, Rem was present! The org will be in good hands this coming school year! 🙂
It’s one of the last moments I’d have with the seniors and I am super regretting not being able to mega bond with them. But I guess that gives me enough reason to go wild and whatever this coming March 5 in VERGE: Lucky Thirteen 🙂 Click the photo for the FB Event page. Everyone can go! 🙂
I can’t go emo for now because of how heavy this coming week is, but just you guys wait. I will try my best to make people at least shed a tear 🙂 See you guys this Saturday!

Bad way to start the day but while the day progressed, total happiness. After 11:30, I was done with all my classes and the fun and all degrees of happiness just came and filled my day.
SWEETS! First time to buy from Candy Corner this morning for the week considering they’ve been in school the WHOLE week. Haha! Strawberry strips thingy. A Jalapeño/Banana shaped thingy. And a semi-ellipse thingy. Should’ve bought more! 😦
Trisha and Nikki manning the elections table! I just noticed that these two women always appear in my blog! Haha!
Greg, Nikki and Paolo before leaving CTC-SOM Walkway.
Water Balloons prepared by Management batchmates! Super festive colors! SWEETNESS.
Cool thing! I saw Martin today while he was checking his seat for his ACC30 Long Test. Accompanied him to the SOM photocopy place. HE’S SO NARCISSISTIC! HAHA! Well he took pictures of me but I look so sabog, as usual, so I won’t post it here. Haha! Anyway, I really think that if one will do a photo shoot with Martin, the photographer will have a fun time because of all the crazy poses Martin will be able to think of. Haha!
Afternoon, SOM CUP 2011 closing. ComTech won in a lot of events (no surprise! haha!) Evening, we went bowling at the bowling place in Eastwood. Fun although it was the worst game in my bowling history. Haha! 35?? It was cool to bowl with a prof though. Sir Zab Jimenez, thank you for playing with us! Really appreciate it!
Oh and ComTech are the champions again for SOM Games! Yay!
To end, just want to share that it was so cool that for the first time ever, I saw the disco balls there in “action”. What a great day! 🙂

Ever since High School this time of the school year would always be one of my most anticipated ones (not counting the breaks, of course!) This time of the year would always be filled with discernment and surprises. It’s always nice to see people stepping up but it’s also nice to see people to step down to give opportunities for others.
Yesterday, we had our annual Miting de Avance where the 19 EB candidates presented their platforms and answered some mild, tough and very tough questions by the panel comprised of the incumbent EB (seniors and those not running: Roshni, Fara and I). We started at 4:30 and the presentations began!
Pre Miting de Avance Photos:
JonnDy and Froi! Two of my favorite MEAns! Congratulations for the successful elections!
Bien and MattLee, 2 of the many other ASLAns running for position. Apparently, the ACheS Miting de Avance was just on the room before us!
Miting de Avance time!
Fara and Mindy representing the CorRel Department!
Katz and Mon. Supposed to be a candid shot but Mon saw the camera…well how can you not notice a dSLR if it’s just 4 rulers away from you? Haha!
And now, the 19 EB Candidates!
JR and Isay were the first ones to face the Open Forum!
Krista, Liz, Dawn, Benny, Katie, Angel, Derrick, Ranamae.
Gayle, Gelo, Xea, Jonan, Mia, Ja, Bien, Al, Rem.
Despite the fact that the Miting de Avance was around 4 1/2 hours (4:30-9:00 PM), I can say that everything was worth it. Almost 2 1/2 hours of questions and answers. Some things were cleared up yet some things were left as is because of the lack of time. And I hope that the intense questions helped the candidates be more truly aware of the positions they’re running for. Hopefully 🙂 So best of luck to all the candidates and to those who will not be elected, I hope that you will not lose passion in serving and leading the organization and its members.
And to end this post, I wish to impart you something I learned over the SemBreak:
“God calls you to the place where your DEEPEST GLADNESS and the world’s GREATEST HUNGER meet”

My org, ACTM, had its Tambay Week this week and may I just say that its really nice hanging out with the ACTeaMers without having the need to go to the 3rd floor of the MVP building. It was super fun because for a week ACTeaMers would go to Colayco Pav and play games, cram papers, talk and stuff, sleep, get LSS to “Pocketful of Sunshine”, flirt with people, know more people, etc!
These are some of the pictures I took while I spent the week with my fellow ACTeaMers.
Kim, Nowee, Trisha, Pao and Bibien being all serious with school work
Nikki and Trisha!
Look at the people from different batches but all in one table. Working. Eating. Playing.
Me, photobombing Kat’s and Kirsty’s photobooth picture. Hahaha!
Katz with a cat coin bank! Super corny/shallow but I wouldn’t let the opportunity to take a picture of Katz with a cat pass! haha!
The Tambay Week made me fully realize how much ACTeaMers love singing and jamming. As in swear to God. If I took pictures of every moment people sang and all that, I would have like at least one filled up Facebook album! Too bad though we didn’t have KTV or something. Maybe we should do that or something. Haha!
Josh playing the guitar while Rem was using the cajón. And yes, I had to Google just to get the right spelling! Haha! Issa on the background playing with a pillow. Haha!
It’s also nice to note that ACTM isn’t only the home org of ComTech Majors and the home of innovation, it is also home of the acoustic pop stars, Trisha and Paolo! Haha!
We had some games throughout the whole week but sadly I couldn’t be present in those due to schedule conflict. Although, there was this basketball hoop thing that was never removed until Friday. A real basketball wasn’t used though. We only had pink and green balls that were fun to throw at people.
Here you can see Josh having fun despite the fail attempts of having a picture taken airborne. HAHAHA!
The cute magnetic fishing thing that is apparently still being sold in stores! This toy is very ’90’s! Super cute fishies! A great part of my childhood before GameBoy came into my life! haha! And the crocodile/alligator toy too where you push the teeth thingy. Too bad no one brought one!
