Open House 2010

Last August 16, the dormitories (boys and girls) were opened to the public for more than 6 hours.   It is during times like this that the creativity of the students will be seen especially when time is limited.  I will be sharing here the photos i took of the rooms in the girls dormitory.  Will share the pics of the boy’s rooms in later week.

So let me start — here’s of ROOM 1.  Their theme is balloon festival.


so you can find balloons anywhere in there room.


some of the occupants making a pose.  The one in brown making bubbles.  They gave away bubble bottles for a prize.

ROOM 2 —


I think they are theme less.  The flowers they cut that evening was not used the next day.

They just play with colors on their ceiling.


The eye-catcher in Room 2.  Pick one!

I didn’t.  🙂

ROOM 5 – Music Festival



The girls singing their welcome song as soon as a visitor enters their room.


I love this!

The center of their theme – MUSIC!

EXTENTION ROOM — another colorful room!




There were more pics i took that day in every girls room but will share them from time to time in other posts. 🙂

Thanks to Lovely for letting me borrow her Nikon digital camera.

Nostalgia (my 9th)




I was one of the faculty/staff chaperons of an Educational Tour


~~Almost to reach our destination



~~ That’s our first stop. For lunch. The place feels like attending a debu or a formal party. hehehe


~~ After lunch, this was the next destination. A student activity that was suppose to be done in an hour but we stayed there for more than 2 hrs because many students wanted to reach the top.

Do you wanna know how many steps i made? Oh well, only 3 of that 3003. lol!


~~Here’s me after making that 3 steps. lol!


It was during this trip that i met up close and personal the Miss Earth 2008 winner Karla Paula
and the ladies that won Miss Air and Miss Water.
I think Miss Karla is very beautiful.

Next to that peak, we proceeded to Rizal Shrine in Dapitan.


A sunset view i took from the top of the Lovers’ Rock inside the shrine. I can imagine Jose Rizal and Josephine Bracken enjoy the sunset from that spot.


There’s much more photos to share about this trip so maybe i can post them next time as Part II.

I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as i enjoy recalling those moments.

This is one of the memories that brings a smile to my face at the same time sad because this guy here —


left this world unexpectedly (through a vehicular accident. he was hit by a speeding car heeding to the airport catching a flight) 3 months later.   He was one of the persons that made this trip more lively and unforgetable for the students especially.

An Evening at Holiday Pool

It is not always that we spend an evening at a pool here in the place called the City of Waterfalls.  Thanks to the 12th Adventist Health Professionals Association Convention the Saturday evening activity was swimming at the pool.   Luckily the peace and order situation here in the city is good so no one have second thoughts of going out swimming in the evening.

The visitors from nearby places enjoyed the night eating, swimming, chatting, and just bonding with fellow AHPA members.

Dimple also got a long weekend, so she spent two of those nights with me.  She was one of those who enjoyed the cool cold water (flowing spring water) that evening.

Let me share some of our photos:


– there were 3 subdivisions of pools – one for the kids, one for the adults (swimmers) and one for adults who does not know how to swim. –  The place were i enjoyed swimming.


– they are both excited to swim. Ma’am Jaedee can swim.  But dimple can’t but the daring spirit of my daughter allow her to venture even the deepest of that swimmer’s pool. –

If you will ask me where i was, i was only a sidepool buddy.  Holding to the rails because i feel like the water or the heights or depths is sucking me up.

The place is already beautified for the season but my camera did not capture them beautifully.  What attracted me are the bright colors of the handrails on the minibridge and the canopy at the sidepool



– take note of the bright yellow and orange. they are so attractive to the eyes even in the evening.  so i can just imagine the brighth glow it brings to the blue waters during day time.


– this is what you can see at the kiddie pool. 🙂  my daughter says she’s too old for that area.  –

More more pictorials of us:




– i can’t swim like a professional swimmer but i did have fun that night! –

We went home in our wet suits and there was no water in our dormitory.  Luckily the bathrooms in our office got water pouring so we have to bath in the office. 🙂

Had carbonara is our midnight snack before i decided to call it a night.  I think Dimple went to sleep at past 1 am already.

A friend’s final home on earth – Cagayan de Oro Gardens.

It was a nice day yesterday — blue sky, whispy clouds and cool breeze, comforting us that our parted friend and loved one will be in a very comfortable place.

Mapawa Nature Park’s

Camera Critters


This horse is one of the horses for rides at the Mapawa Nature Park. The nature park is a great weekend getaway for anyone. You can go canyoneering, zip lining, swimming, camping, horseback riding and many more i am sure.

The faculty and staff of the nursing department in our school took a one day break from work and we went zip lining and river rafting.

We really had fun that day. One of the unforgetable day in the life of my daughter especially me who has a phobia for heights.

If a chance will come, id like to bring my whole family there.  Check out the next picture on how to contact the place for more inquries:


Sky Watch Friday # 54


This is a sky photo i took last Friday afternoon right after we reached Midway Beach Resort for our Spiritual Retreat. The sun was still up but soon to go down. The beach is still warm from the heat of the sun. The water was also warm that 5 minutes after we arrived, my friend and i went swimming.   Of the 75 that went there that afternoon, only 3 of us had the chance to swim because it was almost sunset when they arrived.

Do you wanna see my comparable shots taken last year and this year from this place?  I posted it here and i would appreciate any comments. 🙂

For more skies from around the world check out the skyley blog.  Wishing everyone a great week-end!

Food Galore Week

This week was a busy week because of several actiivities that happened.  I said food galore because there were many foods served on the table in all those times and i was sure i did taste each of them. :



Hmmm meaty foods!  I guess i need to consider Colonix review so that toxins in my body can be released.  I think one or two pieces of fruits can’t be enough to release all the toxins built up by all these foods.   Anyway, more food photos:



These are all my lunch Wednesday.  When we arrived at the SM Department store after the raftting, dimple and i had some bread and tuna chunksand ice cream twirl.

Our colloquium started Thursday and we have this as our pedantic snack (tuna toasted bread and cassava cake) and the my lunch:



Lunch composes of:  fish sweet and sour, fried rice, fried lumpia and 2 pcs of small maja blanca. :

I hope am not making any of you hungry.

Food sources:

Wednesday – Kayak Resto, Mambuaya, Cagayan de Oro City (Before & After rafting site)

Thursday – Cafe Hermoso

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. 🙂
