Singapore and High Blood
Last Monday night a classmate of mine surprisingly called and told me that it’s the so-called “Free Call”. It was true. I called a very few which included Jesha. We had small and quick conversations (as the line would suddenly cut) and indeed, John Paul is going to Singapore for another on-the-job training (OJT). In fact, he already left last Friday. I already heard this from Joey when we met but I was not convinced. I don’t know ha, but what’s up with the students from MSU having such OJT’s? He’s been lurking in the site lately. Lurking, you ask? Well, he’s not leaving any comment in any post or a message in the shoutbox but instead leaves them in the guestbook. And now that I’ve mentioned it, let me tell you that Ma’am Nonie Dagondon dropped by here. It seems accidental, and I wonder how. Read her message yourselves. 😀
A news that Armando’s father was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) because of high blood reached me. Let’s hope for a good health for him. Health is wealth, guys. Always plant that in your alimpatakans.
Walking the Streets of Manila
Whew, I’ve been waiting to make this post. Last September 1-8 I was in Manila (just like last year) to attend an IT congress called Y4iT. Rubi (Candy) met me at SM North Edsa and from there she accompanied us to the boarding house she negotiated with for our lodging. At around 11:00, the two of us had to go out to fetch one of my companions. We waited at McDonald’s in PHILCOA where she forcefully made me buy her something.
MSU & IIT
I have heard the presence of MILF in Lanao and suspension of classes in IIT. Let’s all hope and pray that our classmates in Marawi and Iligan City will be fine.
Joey Mangadlao in Bali, Indonesia
As of this moment, our valedictorian is out doing research-related (yet again) stuff. He told me all about it when I interrogated him in our chat several weeks ago. However, I totally forgot about it if it weren’t for Mama Corazon who heard the news from Ma’am Mateo. Two nights ago, I unexpectedly caught him in invisible mode in Yahoo! Messenger. And so I learned that he left on the 2nd and will be back on the 10th. He told me that he’s staying in a hotel and that they visited Singapore first before going to Indonesia. Below is our conversation before he left the country.
“Dung hold up ni kung gus2 ka padaun pg.iskwela ambi imu unit. Kuhaa ang SIM kay importante na para makntak nmu imu Mama.”
This is what Philip told me (as usual, via SMS) when I last registered to SMART’s Unlimited Text. For days, he was asking who I am but I only got the chance to tell him at that time. Hehe. Basically, all his contact numbers were saved in the phone memory, so if his tale is true, then I guess he doesn’t know any of you too.
