Graduation Venue



The venue of the 14th Graduation Exercises of MSH College was held at MSU-IIT gym because the place was bigger than what we have in the campus.  The space can accommodate so much without any problem.  It feels ok when you arrived at the place with so much space but if the place is packed with people then you could wish for huge ceiling fans all over the place, i mean including up above you. There were fans around but it was not enough to cool down almost 2thousand people in attendance and not yet settled in their seats. Good thing almost everyone bought a fan with them, so it was ok.

This year is the third time they held the graduation in this place yet this is only the second time i attended the program – because the attendance was checked and because my boss/bosses have parts.  So i need to be there. 🙂

Gaisano Mall Iligan Greetings


This is what greets you if you enter the lobby of the biggest mall in this small city of Iligan.  I was there this high noon to buy a new umbrella (folding).

I lost my big umbrella last night at the paid baggage boys at the front of the mall.  Since i was on a hurry to get in before it closes, i decided to give in to the beggings of a kid to let him watch my umbrella in exchange for some amount he will use for food the next day.  Out of kindness, i gave in though i often left my stuff at the free baggage counter (by the mall mgt).  When i returned to pick my umbrella, it was already gone.  The boy confessed later that he think he gave it to another person.  Oh well i got no choice but to accept it.  I just can’t get mad at the poor guy.

At high noon today, i went out to the post office to pick a package.  It was so hot as in hot that you need a sun umbrella when going out and if you don’t have one, you want to put on a long-sleeved cloth.  So i wore my blazer. 🙂

Yes You Can!

I do not know how much water you consume if you take a bath or get ready yourself for work.  I am living in a country where it just feel so uncomfortable if you go to work without taking a bath because of the hot weather.  So even without water, we go heaven and earth to find water for a bath.

Nights ago, the water flow all over the city was cut off.  It stopped for more than 24 hours so we filled in every container at home.  Since summer is also here, we observed that the water flow is getting slower and slower so it is important we filled all our pails and big basins with water every night to be used during day time.  Daily, every morning, all of us in this household takes a bath.  So i told them that to conserve water, use a small glass.

Yeah use a small glass!  Try it then i assure you, you can wet your whole self and hair with 5 small glasses of water same time you wet yourself with 5 waterfilled dippers.

I can just imagine a week long without water flowing in our faucets — all over the city.  I guess the city will stink even the seasides. Well if that happens then i would just wish that I am off to one of the affordable  European cruises because am sure they have enough water for evryone for some days.

We are using the small glass now when we bath but we still have the big dippers on standby when we need to ease our stomachs. 🙂
