"My Second Home"
meters away from Asia Pacific College

The 12-storey APC building is a good symbolism: gravity pulls us harder as we go up, the same way challenges slow students down as they move forward in their academic and extra-curricular lives. But when one endures the climb and defies the odds, he or she will eventually reach the top (in APC’s case, the helipad).
APC has helped big-time in making me the person I am now. I said this on Facebook once, and I’ll say it again: as long as I know somebody there, as long as I could help them there in any way, I’ll always come back to my alma mater, my second home.
P.S. With “enduring the climb”, I mean no riding in one of the elevators. XD
"Passage of Time"

The watches I’ve worn since high school. From left to right: “Swatch”, “Adidas”, “Seiko”, and Timex.
The last one, which I’m sporting nowadays, is way more expensive than the first three combined (which were all bought in Guadalupe, Makati City; thus, the quotation marks above).
I didn’t even buy the fourth one; it was a “reward” to us SM Scholars by “Tatang”, Mr. Henry Sy when we graduated from college.
