1st Ibalong Color Run
As part of Ibalong Festival’s activities, the 1st ever Ibalong Color Run was held earlier this morning, August 24, 2014 at the Legazpi City Boulevard. It was indeed a success because everyone enjoyed the event. The assembly time was 5:00 AM in front of the BFP Station, Puro Legazpi. An opening program was held first.. there was also a warm up dance before the run started. The participants were asked to wear white tees and protective glasses. There were five stations- each station with different color powders. As participants pass the stations, race officials will throw colors at them, it was so fun, I swear!
There was also a raffle draw after everyone has completed the route. The closing program was the best, lol. The “color ceremony” was very cool. Everyone went wet and wild as water and colors splashed. :D
Looking forward for the next fun runs. :)

Anyway, I miss being in the field, hunting and chasing bugs, looking forward to discovering new species of spiders and insects in our backyard. It’s been several weeks of exam and school shits I didn’t have so much leisure time for my self. I’m glad my midterms are over, I have one week (only one week) to enjoy myself. I’d spent it shooting. Hihi :D

Hi. Good day! Can you give some advice (regarding about Medtech), I am Medtech student. Nakakadepress lang kasi eh, kailangan ba dapat medtech yung course mo, dapat matalino ka? Hindi kasi ako yung tao na genius type at may study habits. Thank you!
Hi anon! No, not necessarily matalino at buwis buhay mag-aral, although hindi mo na yun maiiwasan kung ang goal mo talaga ay maging magaling sa field na to. My only advice is to put more passion in what you do. I think when you start to appreciate everything about being a medical technologist, things will fall into place. Just enjoy everything, don’t kill yourself with pressure and stress. Happy happy lang dapat ang mga medtechs! :)
Teaser. Chos! Lol
So my classmates and I came up with this logo (punchline courtesy from my blog hehe). Anyway, we had no internet so we created this from scratch. Medyo nahirapan kami kasi wala kaming magandang ideas, but I’m satisfied with this already.
Excited for Medtech Week! Yey! But first, I’ll have go through my Midterm exams! I know I’ll do good in Blood Banking (hopefully) I
bubuwis ko buhay ko, huhu!
Oh! How I love Macro Photography! Hihi :)
"S t r a y"
Giving Street Photography a try. Hihi. :)
Any study habits?
I am a terrible student with a terrible study habit. Lol.
Anyway, this is what I do - when I read textbooks, I take down notes. I have a separate notebook for each subject giving me enough space to write down important infos. Basta just read and read and have fun. :D
Hiiii! Ask ko lang po if you used steininger (idk if i spelled it right) na hema book po. Thanks! :)
Hello! Sorry for the super late reply! Anyway, hindi po kami gumagamit ng Steininger. I already have Rodak and Brown so sayang naman kung bibili pa ako ng another book (saka na ko bibili pag lecturer na ako sa Hema HAHAHA!), pero sabi nila, Steininger has good discussions on Hemostasis and Coagulation. :)
Typhoon Glenda in Albay
Tuesday afternoon - classes were suspended, I went home straightaway. The weather seemed fine that day, there wasn’t any sign of a bad weather or something, it wasn’t even cloudy. Anyway, when I arrived home, mom wasn’t there. I decided to rest first and catch up with her later because she’s at my tita’s house. We went to a party and went home around 10PM, still, no signs of Glenda.
I slept early that night, I woke up around 6am the next day with strong winds and heavy rains already being felt. Mom told me to pack up all my things. We evacuated to my tita’s house for the threat of flash flood. Signals and electricity were cut around 7PM. It was such a bad typhoon. We can hear metals, aluminum etc being rampaged by the heavy winds, we peeked through the window but there wasn’t anything to watch because of the zero visibility caused by the heavy winds.We can hear it hissing and it was very painful to hear. We couldn’t bear to sleep because the winds were still very strong around 10PM. I finally fell asleep idk how. I woke up 5:30AM and a smile touched my lips because the sun was already shining. The winds and rains have stopped.
No electricity and signal for idk till when. Still thankful because we were all safe, my bro and sis who are both in Manila are safe, thank you. My mom and I are safe, also we’ve already cleaned up the mess..Zero casualty in Albay.. Let’s all go back to business! :)
National Blood Month 2014
- Parade from Rotonda to Ibalong Centrum for Recreational Arts
- Mass @ ICR
- Opening program
- Blood letting
July 11, 2014 - Legazpi City celebrating the National Blood Month headed by DOH, in cooperation with the different local government agencies in Legazpi City - PNP, BFP, BJMP, Coastguard, Navforsol, Arescom, APHO, and with the different colleges and universities - Bicol University, Ago Medical and Educational Center, Aquinas University, Divine College, Don Bosco, Forbes, Mariners and different fraternities and other non-government organizations. With the support given by the Local Government Unit of Legazpi headed by Mayor Rosal, the event was held successfully and peacefully. This month’s celebration emphasizes the importance of donating blood and encourages every capable individual to donate blood and save lives.
I thought that the parade and the event was just a hoax lol bec nobody from our class seemed to care. I was surprised because my classmates arrived earlier than I did. Our call time was 6AM, I went to school around 6:30AM. It was a beautiful day, thank God. We were all happy because we got lots of balloons to play with (anyway, we were awarded as the Most Colorful Delegate). After the parade, a mass was held at the ICR, followed by the opening program. After that, the blood letting began. We were originally told to just observe the blood donation process but then, they allowed us to assist and handle some donors (yeah!). It was a great experience. We were able to apply everything we learned at school, I mean, it’s really a different thing when you’re outside the four corners of your classroom — dealing with real patients and facing real life situations - when mistakes aren’t very much allowed. I admit that I felt a lot of pressure when I was about to stick the needle (gosh it was so huge, 16G, imagine a zest-o straw!), what if I fail? What if I don’t hit the vein? Lol. Aside from hurting the patient, the blood bag will be discarded. Fortunately, everything went well. We were so lucky to be given a chance to observe and assist. I am now starting to imagine myself doing the real work. Hehe. I am so happy. Being in the medical field is so fun! :)
