In memory of AdMU ORSEM

Apparently four years in Ateneo made a bigger impact on me than 16 years in St. Scho Marikina! Ateneans in AIM are totally revamping the orientation Ateneo style. It's gonna be fun and exciting! Lucky for the next batch they have people like us. Well, we'll get first shot at the hotties and the cuties so that's incentive enough. I hope we go down in history as the best party class ever... I think we're doing a good job living that reputation already.

Can't wait for next year and start partying again!!! Oh, and study, of course.

Greetings to all Daddy...

I'm already greeting all the Dads out there... Happy Father's day! My dad is in US right now with my mom so, no family lunch or dinner for us this year. But at least I'll see him when they get back on sunday. Last minute hurrah before the day ends. So... papa... love you! Thanks for sending me to school and loving me even when I'm a brat!

Dial 1-800-Conci-d-Cupid

I took it upon myself to play matchmaker to some of my friends, with the help of Tini of course. To date, I already set up three blind dates. Unfortunately, I could only claim success with the last one. I won’t mention any names. I don’t want to incriminate any of my friends, or even Tini’s. The first couple, the girl was a feisty one and since it was an ambush blind date, she was already resistant from the start. I’m partly to blame. The guy, I guess, felt it wasn’t going to work too so, communication was already strained. One thing led to another…BAM disaster!

Couple number two’s date went pretty well. However, it didn’t go further than that. What happened? It’s what we call in school cultural miscommunication. I’m being diplomatic when I say it was nobody’s fault it didn’t work. They were just coming from two totally different worlds!

The most recent couple dated last Saturday night. It was a success by my standards because after three days, I haven’t heard any bad things from both of them. I can also sense both had fun. Even I had fun hanging out with them! Yup, Tini and I babysat but left about 30 minutes earlier. During the date I tried to get the 411 on what the girl thought of the guy, but we were interrupted while we were in the bathroom. I think Tini was able to squeezed something out of the guy while we were doing our thing.

I continue to play cupid to my friends. So, anybody there willing to be my guinea pigs, just holler!

Partying Harder...Again

MBA2005 in AIM have lived up to the Instituion's unofficial motto, "Study Hard, Party Harder". Last friday, the signal has been sent out to everybody for a get together in Blue Onion. Despite the rains and some of us still taking the CFA exam on sunday, we met up. With a beer in hand, we entered Blue Onion. It was full and no empty table was in sight. We found a place to sit by the ledge and in no time, was dancing for the whole bar to see! Rico Pena and his pretty wife was there swaying to the beat of the music. Jehan Machacon, our respectable class president, was bumping and grinding with Awesh Shreshta and James Tagorda. Even Joao Manikan, still wearing his polo barong, was there. Our buddy Rahul Singh was applauded by the crowd when the Indian sounding club tune was played and he was dancing on the ledge. Sriram Krishnamachari got lost somewhere but I found him amongst the crowd dancing too. Al and Liezl followed too. As for myself, I got hungry and tired and left a little bit early. It was nice seeing everybody. It was really a day for celebration because we just got our grades and we're now full-fledged seniors!

Hooray for the batch! Congrats to all and especially for those who just took their CFA exam. Next weekend I hear there's another get together, this time in Halo in Makati. Hope to see you all there!

Just have a few friends linked here on my site. Have to ask permission from some people to add their sites. Have fun reading!

Blood, Prints, & DNA

If Tini has his basketball...I have my CSI. I'm a CSI junkie. Whether it's Miami or Las Vegas (and hopefully New York), I try to watch every episode. My favorite though, is Las Vegas. I dunno, I just like Gil Grissom's personality better than Horatio Caine. It's wednesday right now and I have my CSI appetizer on Studio 23...later, the main course on AXN. I also watch the double episode every mondays. My fascination doesn't stop there. Every friday and saturday I watch Crime Night on Discovery Channel. Although it's not as dramatic as CSI it's still fun to watch. I'm just a sucker for mysteries.

I have to watch CSI as much as I can before school starts again.
