Nagpunta ako sa school kanina para magrenew ng scholarship. Kumuha narin ako sa Dean's Office ng Schedule of Fees.

Ang mahal ng tuition. Pero di na ko nagulat. Sanay na.

Sa totoo lang, sulit naman talaga ang tuition fee, kung quality education ang pagbabasehan. Pero ang Miscellaneous + other fees + other charges? Yun ang padagdag sa bayarin. Hindi rin naman masyadong nagagamit.

Kaya eto ang mga tips ko para masulit ang binabayad natin sa paaralan:

1. Laging mag-library- Manghiram ng libro. Hindi ko naman sinabing basahin mo, basta hiramin mo lang. Tapos siyempre ibalik mo. Kapag mainit, tumambay sa library, sa tapat mismo ng aircon. Kapag umuulan, sa library sumilong. Yung iba kasi may phobia sa library eh, malaki kaya ang library fee!

2. Magpacheck-up kahit walang sakit- Alam niyo ba na kasama din sa miscellaneous ang medical at dental services? Kaya kung boring ang klase, magpanggap na nahihilo para makatulog sa clinic/health service. Note: acting skills required.

Sinong may sabi na sa London lang uso ang Royal family? Meron din sa Pinas niyan 'no, kahit Republic/Democratic/Presidential pa ang type of government at hindi Monarkiya.

Kaso sa TV nga lang...

Sino ba naman ang makakalimot sa "Sarah, Ang Munting Prinsesa"?

Naalala ko lang bigla kasi nung isang araw may replay sa Studio 23. Ilang beses ko narin 'to napanood at dati talaga tuwang tuwa ako. Dahil sa palabas na 'yan, buong buo ang paniniwala ko na may snow talaga sa Pilipinas.

At siyempre kung may Prinsesa, dapat may Prinsipe rin. Naalala niyo pa ba ang "Cedie, Ang Munting Prinsipe"?

It's been almost two months since I've last seen my classmates and I really miss them.

I remember during those busy days of project-making, when we have to stay in my house to finish etching, drilling and soldering our circuit. PCB etching is such a long and tedious process and it involves a lot of waiting. While waiting, my groupmates and I play Pusoy Dos in our garage and I have to admit, we got addicted to it.

Monopoly is one of the games in Casino Adelina
Even those from the other groups come by my house to finish the project join the Pusoy Dos fun. It happens almost everyday that's why our garage was named "Casino Adelina" (based on our street's name). The casino was also extended in our classrooms (I hope my profs aren't reading this). We form groups and sit on the floor during breaks or when the prof is absent.

A few days ago, I went to Duty Free with my mom and tita. We finished shopping early so my tita decided to spend some time in PAGCOR before we go home.

They say December 21, 2012 is the scheduled date for the end of the world. Apparently, people are making doomsday an urgent matter.

An evangelical group in California, headed by Rev. Harold Camping, founder of Family Radio Worldwide, believes that the Judgement Day will happen on May 21, 2011. He predicts the world will end that day and only true believers of God will remain with Him.

If that prophecy is true, then we only have 9 days left here on Earth. So why am I not bothered?

As a Catholic, I sincerely believe that there will be a Judgment day and it marks the end of time. The Bible clearly states that the Lord will come and only those who believe in Him shall have eternal life in His kingdom.

But when will that happen? Can we really predict the exact date through the galactic alignment, the Mayan calendar or the continuous war and earthquakes?

Who would have thought hotel heiress and socialite Paris Hilton is a huge boxing fan? Or not?

Paris Hilton became a trending topic not just on Twitter but also in the local media for her I-love-Manny-and-Jinkee tweets during the Pacquiao-Mosley fight.

She is rooting for Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and even joined the post-fight press conference, sitting with Jinkee.

It seems like Pacman gained another avid fan and this event somehow made Filipinos more proud that Paris is very vocal of her love for the Philippines.

She even greeted Charice on Twitter! By the way, Happy birthday Charice and congratulations for a job well done singing the National Anthem!

I know the Philippines is a great place and many international celebrities love the country, but the sudden fuss just feels weird. I was thinking maybe Paris has another motive.

Two great fighters will face each other on the ring again. It's Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley on the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas for the welterweight championship.

Will Pacman do it again? Or will Sugar release his knockout power to beat the eight-division world champion?

Nothing can stop these two men fight for the belt and nothing can stop boxing fans from witnessing this historical event.

Because for mothers, everyday is children's day.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms in the world!

For my first #sentisabado treat, I'd like to feature the Justin Bieber during our time.. Aaron Carter!

Remember this little guy over here?

Aaron is the most popular kid for young girls back in the 1990s. He is the younger brother of Backstreet Boy's Nick Carter (also a heartthrob back then).

I went to YouTube to watch his music video for "Crush On You". I can't believe I still remember the lyrics.

Unfortunately, kids grow up. A few months ago, Aaron Carter entered rehab for some issues he's dealing with. He was once arrested for marijuana found in his car.

If you're a Twitter active user, then you may already be familiar with Senti Sabado.

A few months ago, Pinoy Twitter users reminisce the 80's and 90's using the hashtag #sentisabado every Saturday, hence "Senti Sabado".

It was fun to read tweets on my time line regarding old movies and songs, long lost celebrity stories and other remember-those-days facts.

Now I would like to do this on my blog and I will start tomorrow, of course, because today is Friday Friday (fun fun fun!)

I'm inviting other Pinoy bloggers to do the same. Let's relive those good ol' days!

I had a really great bonding time with my mom yesterday. We've been planning to go out ever since but it was always postponed due to our previous appointments.

We went to Bayan Center to upgrade my DSL speed. I was complaining for the slow internet connection that I'm getting these past few weeks. My DSL plan is just 768kbps so I decided to upgrade it to 1mbps. I really wanted to have at least 1.5mbps but it's too expensive for me.

As usual, choosing the place to eat is the most difficult thing to do when you're in the mall. There are so many restaurants and a variety of cuisines to choose from. Since I'm a Pinoy food lover and I was craving for something grilled that time, I suggested that we eat at Bacolod Chicken Inasal. My mom hesitated and said, "Chicken na naman?". But in the end I convinced her that the food is really great and she should try their bangus.

Bacolod Chicken Inasal is the place to go if you're very hungry because they have combo meals with eat-all-you-can rice at affordable prices. I ordered Chicken Inasal and mom ordered Inihaw na Bangus. We both loved it! I finished my mountain-ful of extra rice in unbelievably fast speed. The chicken tastes really good that I'm not even talking while eating. Mom was glad I convinced her to eat there because she loved it too.

I was one of those who attended the World Youth Day in 1995 and I consider myself very lucky. I was fortunate to see Pope John Paul II, even from afar.

I was very young back then. I'm not really sure what's going on but I know everyone was celebrating. Everyone was so joyful to see the Pope. I felt joyful too.

Now that he's already beatified, I became more proud that I have witnessed his love, his humility and kindness. He was a very well-loved Pope for he had done so many great things to the church and to its people.
