Caloocan Mabuhay Ka!!

This post is dedicated to those who want to know the steps in this song. Minsan kagapag nag flag ceremony sa Monday morning, the students are required to do this..lahat gumagawa at marunong nito. ako hindi. So I was really ashamed. Good thing ngayon wala akong subject every Monday morning!
Here a video to teach how to do the steps:

MAPE TV 5’s Talentadong Pinoy Man!!

Matagal na po to pero post ko parin!!
Si JR Mape! I had the privilege to interview him for THE CROSSROADS last …. I forgot the date..really long time ago! hehehehe.It was the first time he won in Talentadong Pinoy. It made to the news around the campus not just in Camarin where he truly belongs but also in the 5 campuses of UCC. He’s an AB Math 3rd year then. He was really fun & easy to talk to. I’m personally amazed with this guy because he was able to develop those talents from scratch. He just got some of his first instruments from junk! He can do dice stacking, rubiks (blindfolded), play the guitar, violin & a lot more. He’s from no musical clan or whatever. He’s just a simple guy who tried his luck to showcase his unique talent on TV. He even played violin for me once & I wa struly mesmerized. Ilokano din pala siya.

Here’s a video clip:

Video Credit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiCD09aZVg

Based on some background research I did on the net about him, I have found out that he joined different rubiks contest locally & internationally he ranked 4th, 3rd sometimes 1st! That was really quite unique for a pinoy isn’t it? He laong with his younger brother also appeared in WOWOWEE, EATBULAGA & SIS. (spell exposure?)
Another video clip from Bulacan Open 2009:

Although most of us UCCians are poor we stil strive & compete with others. We also have talents that if harnessed can be a source of pride for our fellow students.

We are used to doing things from scratch. We are used of getting the best out of the least. We learn to take advantage of every environment we land to improve ourselves & not just wait of what the university can offer. The real world is our training ground! So who said we lack facilities??

BS PSYCHOLOGY Majors in ABS-CBN It’s Showtime

university of caloocan city, working student, buhay working student, phone english teacher, Philippines, http://ucc-estudyante.blogspot.com/,

I was surprised to have a call from my sister & receive the news that my classmastes are on TV!! I quickly looked for a TV but there was none in our boarding house. So I just settled in my sister’s narration of what was happening already on TV.
Last Dec. 15, 15 of my classmates & friends from Psychology department bravely treaded the path to the ABS-CBN office & registered themselves as audiences. They got a little help from a tour guide once assigned there (Moises Fuentes & company). It was such a great exoperience for them so I am really happy & proud!
By the way, ate Realyn Castillo was given the privilege to act as a host of the show for some short while & she did it very well.
To view the said episode of IT”S SHOWTIME click here. But beware, the video is not that clear & it is also kind of blurred. Be patient. I am trying my best to look for a clearer copy but its unavailble from the web!

The Crossroads Sacked for Telling the Truth

university of caloocan city, working student, buhay working student, phone english teacher, Philippines, http://ucc-estudyante.blogspot.com/,

My fellow Crossroads staffer had a meeting with Mrs. F last week then after that I’ve heard that the whole staff is going to be replaced!! I didn’t feel neither remorse nor regret. I don’t have to. I’d prefer not to be a staff there & cling to the truth than blindly follow & adhere to their rules. I don’t wanna be a puppet of the administrtion.
Sour graping??? Oh definitely not!
The inside of the university is higly politicized. It is an emblem of our present government. Press freedom is supressed. If you detract & criticize them you are an enemy. I wonder who will be the new set of staff who will follow blindly the powers-that be.

Phot Credits:www.bulatlat.com/news/5-13/5-13-media.html

I know that the org has some share of blunders also but it is not enough to eliminate them. Just because of an opinionated article implying the truth?? Who are they to tell us what is real?? They are always inside their airconditioned offices. They don’t see the university from our eyes. They don’t experience standing the whole class, they don’t walk along the court with fear that they might be hit by a ball, they don’t endure the heat of the noon sun inside the closely crowded rooms, they don’t experience being clueless about a lot of subjects they are supposed to master, they don’t feel the void being desparately filled with the pageants, activities & programs. They don’t experience reciting & at the same time trying to outvoice the noise outside. They definitely don’t & will ever understand unless they admit that what’s on the paper is true.
Ignorance ends when we try to admit it.
So for now…that our term has ended….I will continue what I promised myself to uphold. the truth. And this blog will be my medium.
Well I’m not just going to stand aside & watch my university sink into the mud. I still can do something!
We all can.
You know we are just a group of people whoe writes what we see. We write the good & bad ones. It’s that the bad ones outweigh the good ones. What can we do? Fabricate it & compromise the truth? NO WAY!!
I’ve read from a shirt print

“Student Journalists should make a headline, not make
them”
