Just came from the initial staff meeting of the Days With The Lord – Makati Science High School Batch 2. Not many people came, well, that’s expected, but the same fun was there.

Don Bosco Days With The Lord Community started off with the efforts of three people, and over the years we’ve grown to over a hundred already. Okay, we’re incomparable with Ateneo or Xavier in terms of community size (with Xavier having over a hundred batches) but we’re not after quantity naman, more on quality.

Ayun, so as expected, nagkita “kami”. And talagang siya pa yung una kong nakita. Well expected naman yun pero talagang hindi ko kinaya. And what’s worse pa was when I came, the two of us were alone in the living room, no conversations, no sounds at all (you could almost hear the cockroach walk by). So nagpunta na lang ako sa bedroom ni Jason (may-ari ng bahay) at natulog. Rude, I know, but I can’t take it. Not now. I came because I want to serve God, not anything else.

Anyhoo, not letting that get in the way of my service, the meeting went fine. It’s inevitable to miss the old dayzers who are always so makulit and maingay during the meetings. This time, only the new people came, the recent batches. Maybe because of lack of information dissemination, but I think also because of shifting of loyalties and the beginnings of the division of the community into chapters. Sad, I know, but it’s inevitable, I guess.


This is my batch, BuskoDays-Manda 10-5. (Back) Pare kong Ron, (Front from Left) Me, Our Rector Kuya Noel, my best batchmate Leo and our Vice-Rector Ate Kae.


Ito ang Tropang SK (secret ang meaning). Clockwise from Left: Ate Mimi, Kakosang Jason, Kumpareng Eiman, my Rector Kuya Melo, Chodie Marie, Tzuang-Mi Jel, yours truly, Buddy Melvin and cutie-cute-cute Cholo.

To the older dayzers of the BuskoDays Community, you’ll be sorely missed. I do hope the lines that now divide us into separate undertakings would blur as it is daubed by the overflowing essence of Kuya Jess’s love for all His people. Let’s win more souls for God! Let’s split up, gang!

I’d be Vice-Rector for Batch 16 come Summer of 2007. Whoo! Hope I’d be able to do it, for the greater glory of God! (Ad Majorem Dei Gloriem, haha nawala ang pagka-UP-an bigla)


Gaano kalala ang craving ni JM for his own laptop? Hmmm… let’s count the (drumroll please) obsession factors:

  • Kapag pupunta ako sa mall, I would never fail to check out the “techie” section and browse their laptops, hoping that someday I’d run into a real bargain and be able to get mine (haha asaness; geek!)
  • I’d scream at the sight of a real laptop bargain sa school, at palaging mag-uuwi ng brochures para ipakita kay mommy
  • I’d melt at the thought na yung aunt ko bibili na ng laptop (and to think na, arguably, mas well-off kami sa kanila)
  • I’d melt again sa pagsama ko kay Pare kong Ron sa pagbili ng kanyang laptop. (Hmmm… mag-seminaryo na rin kaya ako para i-bribe rin ako ni mommy? Haha…)
  • At eto ang pinakamalupit sa lahat, the other day I actually dreamt na yung little sister ko ay may sarili niyang laptop given by my mom tapos ako wala. (Waaahhh saksakin niyo na lang ako sa dibdib!!!)

It’s worsening, I know. I don’t think it’ll stop. And I think the only cure would be an Acer Aspire 9500 or a dose of Compaq Presario. =P



Morbidly addicted to this song, sorry I just have to post it:
Breakin’ Free
High School Musical Soundtrack

We’re soarin’, flyin’
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying
So we’re breaking free

You know the world can see us
In a way that’s different than who we are
Creating space between us
‘Til we’re separate hearts

But your faith it gives me strength
Strength to believe

We’re breakin’ free
We’re soarin’
Flyin’
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying
Yeah, we’re breaking free
Oh, we’re breakin’ free

Can you feel it building
Like a wave the ocean just can’t control
Connected by a feeling
Ohhh, in our very souls
Rising ’til it lifts us up
So every one can see

We’re breakin’ free
We’re soarin’
Flyin’
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying
Yeah we’re breaking free

Ohhhh runnin’
Climbin’
To get to that place
To be all that we can be
Now’s the time
So we’re breaking free
We’re breaking free
Ohhh , yeah

More than hope
More than faith
This is true
This is fate
And together
We see it comin’

More than you
More than me
Not a want, but a need
Both of us breakin’ free

Soarin’
Flyin’
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying
Yeah we’re breaking free
Breaking free

Were runnin’
Ohhhh, climbin’
To get to the place
To be all that we can be
Now’s the time
Now’s the time
So we’re breaking free
Ohhh, we’re breaking free
Ohhhh

You know the world can see us
In a way that’s different than who we are
