haven't updated in a while because of a very hectic school schedule. but here it is, we won the regional finals and we are going to the national finals in iloilo. the national finals is set on november 22-23, 2008 and we will be facing the champions in the luzon, ncr and visayas legs of the milo-sbp tournament.
before we will be going there, 9 of the sbp boys participated in the mindanao childrens games together with 6 players from the gaisano team. they played for the gold medal against university of the immaculate conception and they got the gold with a 94-64 win. it was a good enough tune up for the 9 sbp boys who will be playing in the national finals.
we will be going to the national finals to enjoy the games, the camaraderie with fellow champion teams but if the chance to get the national title presents itself, we will not hesitate to grab that chance.

congratulations boys!animo ateneo!

got an unexpected visitor yesterday. ms.holly calica, a fullbright study tour participant two years ago, visited me here at the office yesterday. it was totally unexpected since, i never thought that after their tour here, i would see them again. it was very nice of her to visit and catch up with things after two years. to ma'am holly, it was very nice to see you again :D

we are currently having our paascu re-accrediation here in our school. this is my first experience at an accreditation and somebody from their group entered my 9 am class earlier. i got the "jitters" when the accreditor came in but, i calmly overcame the initial shock and spent the next 30 minutes or so delivering the lesson. the accreditor never got the chance to see what the students can really do because he did not stay long enough but i'm prepared with my class, so i have nothing to worry about.

looking back, those trends are slowly coming back. the toys i grew up with are making their re-appearances and catering a new generation of kids who would long for them, just like how we longed for them when we were kids....new generation, same toys...i bet when they reach my age i'm in now, they would also have fond recollections of the days they spent playing with their toys while waiting for the rain to stop so that they can share the joy they have with their friends who also long for the rain to stop so that they can play together.

for some strange reason, i can't compose anything for this blog except this piece that i'm writing now. a lot has transpired since my last post, but i can't really organize my thoughts and express them all here. a case of a writer's block (hopefully, it can't get the best of me 'cause i have a lot to write for this year.)

after 20 years, dad bought me a gi joe figure again. i still remeber my first gi joe, it was duke. it was back when i was in grade 1. last saturday, i finally saw the first available 25th anniversary singles here in davao. i immediately asked dad if he can buy me one.( i wasn't really hoping he would get it for me but i tried.hehe. and it worked, after lunch, he asked where the gi joe was located in the toy department and he brought it for me. i felt like the grade 1 student again. literally, my heart was pounding and i cannot contain my excitement of owning my first 25th joe. thanks dad. i'm very lucky that after all these years, dad still can buy me a toy..hehe).

this seven inch wonder of a laptop immediately caught wifey's fancy. we already saw one for sale in a few computer stores here inthe city and i can feel her excitement in owning one. (sister in law, agreed to help her get a unit when she arrives and it will be another week away from now . she arrives on the 29th and everybody in the family is getting their "pasalubong" from her..hehe. i hope it includes me.)
our classes officially ended some two weeks ago. we are on "summer mode" as i write this entry. aside from our summer work, what kept me busy was the processing of all the paper works for our house. the utilities and the finalization of the details of our house really is taxing. fortunately, the utilities are halfway done with the water utility to be followed up this friday. after the water utility, the house can be livable already which we hope to do on may 11th. (if we finally occupy our house, it will really be a fulfilled dream for wifey and i. we have longged for the house for sometime and we can really live in "our own place".)
to close out this entry, i present to you, two people i love most:
gabby and wifey!

i officially got a haircut after six years last thursday. not that i didn't ever cut my hair for six years but everytime i went to the barbershop, i would let my barber trim my locks so it still has the "long hair" feel.
last thursday, i did ask my barber to give me what they termed as the "barber's cut". it is a close trim and a clean cut. i finally managed to let go of my locks. my brother calls me "boy haircut" after seeing my new do.
well, we do "new" things once in a while and i just did something "new" by having a clean cut.

it's our images, the artco. pioneers. it's been already ten years since we conceived this group....an friendship among artists who love art. what bound us together was our friendship, love for art and anything that pertains to both. (the art sessions, the planning sessions which ultimately leads to some "inuman" sessions. excluding the female pioneers of course.)
as of this writing, pyk has told me that a chapter in another school has been established.
if somebody was going to interview me about this group which we pioneered and how it has survived ten years of existence...i would be proud to say that aside from our love for art, what really helped artco. through the years is the friendship forged by each batch of artco. members.
as long as the bonds of friendship will continue to develop, i will predict that artco. will live for a lot more years. after all, friendship was what helped conceive and bring our organization to fruitition.
