A Very Long Weekend

September 29, 2009

Photo Shot Before going home around 5:30

First of All thank you so much to Miss Kathleen Lumandas for lending me her camera on this accidental shot. Accidental because we only saw it before going home with a big crowd of students around it. We were wondering what the fuzz is all about but then we read it saying that there will be no Classes till the 3rd of October due to the typhoon. It was quite soothing because we got the week for rest and postponements of our requirements but we dearly hope that the two coming storms will not be as harsh as typhoon Ondoy.

Let us all pray for the victims of Ondoy here in The Philippines and on Vietnam.

After Seven Long Months, This calls for a Celebration!

September 28, 2009

Shot on the road earlier at 14:58

The photo shows a group of elder ladies that participated on the Barangay Fiesta Karakol(Traditional Street Dancing offered for the Patron Saint) of Barangay Tapia, General Trias, Cavite. By the way, Barangays are small divisions of a town here in the Philippines. It's word etymology came from the Ancient Boats called as Balangay which was then the primary source of transportation and shelter of the early Filipinos and other Malayan People. The Karakol lasted for more than an hour so the whole time, we were stucked on traffic but my friend did overtake the Karakol so I was lucky to get some shots!

Well, First of all I would like to thank all my friends who waited for my return, this is it! I really really missed Daily Photo Blogging but I was forced to bid goodbye for quite a while to focus on my Undergraduate Thesis. And the day came, September 8, 2009. The Final defense of my Group (Que, Sanchez, Oliveros) lasted for about 2 hours for our Network Based Payroll system with Biometrics and we were delighted that our System was accepted. Of all the 84 Groups of CS and IT students, we were very blessed to be the first to pass! So thank you so much for all your prayers!

Also, may I ask everyone to please pray for the Filipinos who are suffering with the Typhoon Ondoy Tragedy. A lot of homes, and even people went away with the storm and we are all affected by the loss. But of course, Filipinos are known for smiling in the midst of the storms and I am really sure that we can help each other and move on in no time! All we need is our prayers! God Bless us all!!!
