Moving Forward

In a month's time, I would be transferring offices again. I started from a very technical department, under the administration cluster. A year and about 3 months later, I was given the privilege to transfer to one of the most influential and authoritative departments in the academic cluster. It was still a split engagement, with me going back and forth these two offices.

And for almost 2 years, I improved processes, handled, battled, and took care of hundreds of scenarios, cases, and situations that seem to always come with the university seasons. I became cognizant of academic procedures and with this knowledge came the understanding of many realities that I vowed to try to fix, given the chance, and if I can.

I will miss being up to my neck deep in operations and in SLMIS. But I think I will miss more being in the company of great people who, inspite of erecting a facade of sternness in all their dealings, turned out to be really cool and happy persons. I will always have their friendship and can always count on them even if I would no longer spend most of the day with them.

Movement is good. But moving forward is always better because you can always look back and see everything you've done. :D

Uncle Bong in SG

It's been over two decades since I last saw Uncle Bong. He would usually drop by Diamond Village in Novaliches, Quezon City to visit Lola Magding and my mother's side of the family there. Back then, I was still in college, and I think he had also just started working, in the automotive industry. He has since worked in cruise ships and it was a good stroke of fortune when he told me that they would be dry-docking in Singapore. Mama's side has always been close-knit and could see the fondness in his eyes as he recalled his dealings with Lola Magding and her children, Mama included. He would then share stories of how many of our relatives emigrated off the "isla" to find better opportunities in Manila. Given the brief opportunity, I'm still blessed to have seen him again after all these years. I am also happy that he was able to meet Mae and his "apos". Until we next see each other, Uncle Bong!

Family Visits Singapura

My parents and in-laws traveled to Singapore last September and it was truly memorable! I'm trying out some code to display a Google Photos album and it's quite cool that I'm able to embed the album here. Credits to Pavex for the great tool. He details out how to use it here . Check out the album below!

CDO and Cebu 2019

These are some of the pictures I took during the CDO (Cagayan de Oro) and Cebu legs of our 2019 trip to the Philippines. In CDO, we did a joint birthday celebration for our kids since their birthdays are just a week apart. It was a great time to catch up with extended family and friends. We then flew to Cebu City and spent a couple of days meeting family and close friends. Since Cebu has direct flights to Singapore, it made a lot of sense to make the Queen City of the South as the last stop. Check out the albums below: Cagayan de Oro Cebu
