Brigada Eskwela 2017

Before the school year 2017-2018 kicks off, the Department of Education conduct this Brigada Eskwela activity at school.  This is an annual program by the Department of Education wherein teachers, parents, students, interested parties, and other volunteers who give their time in this community service like cleaning the classrooms, doing some repairs, painting, and other things that needs to be done before the new school years starts.  This is a long week event wherein volunteers are encouraged to give their time and efforts for minor repairs at school.  Also, the schools accepted donations in kind such as paints, cements, brooms, rugs, lumber and other things needed at school.

This school year 2017-2018, the Brigada Eskwela starts on May 15-19, 2017.  The teachers, students, parents, and other volunteers are busy checking and examining everything at school.  Minors repairs will be done a week before the first day of school.  This program is a good idea because everybody are helping each other to make the school ready for the school year.  We will be able to see parents, teachers, students and other volunteers doing these volunteer works, also called Bayanihan (cooperative jobs).  My brother and nieces are already participating in their school.  They are now getting ready for the enrollment next week.

The Season 79 UAAP Women’s Volleyball Finals has concluded today.  The defending champion De La Salle University (DLSU) Lady Spikers retains the title as they swept the Ateneo Lady Eagles (ADMU) in their best of three series, 2-0.  It was a good fight and the girls gives their hearts and determination to win and it was the DLSU Lady Spikers emerged.  It was a sweet victory for the archers to win the back-to-back title.  And a sad exit for the Ateneo Lady Eagles.  But there is nothing to be ashamed of for the lady eagles because they give a good fight.  Just that the heart of the defending champion is stronger than them.

I am cheering for the lady eagles and I am sad that they did not win the title.  But to make it to the finals is a sweet victory already.  Better lack next time to the blue lady eagles I must say.  The lady eagles are still young and they can bounce back in the next season.  I hope to see Bea De Leon, Jia Morado, Michelle Morente, Joana Maraguinot, and the Ateneo Lady Eagles team win the women’s volleyball championship.  These ladies will surely rock the volleyball court next season.  Still a huge congratulations to the ladies for the job well done.  You may not bring home the crown, but to us Ateneo fans, you are the winner and you are the champion in our hearts.  Kudos to the DLSU Lady Spikers for winning the back-to-back title.

I am a fan of beauty pageants, local, national and international competitions.  I am amaze watching those ladies who have lots of confidence to stand in front of thousands and millions of people watching them.  I see myself in them even if I do not have the quality to be one.LOL!  Well, I should say they fulfill my dreams.  I have my bets and I am cheering for them.  Sometimes I play as a judge, I have papers and pen and I list down the girls who stand out and nailed in the question and answer, long gown competition, and in the swimsuit competition.

When it comes to beauty pageants, Philippines is one of the powerhouse team.  One of the best contenders.  This is because Philippines bet always stands out.  Their beauty emerges among other girls.  The determination and resilience of the Philippines beauty queen make them stand out.  Last night was the much-awaited coronation night of the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 (Miss Philippines 2017).  And they crowned new queens that will represent the country in international pageants.  The new queens are pretty and surely will make the country proud when they compete internationally.  Unfortunately, my bet was not able to bag any title/crown.  I guess it is not her time yet, I hope she will join again next year.  To all the winner’s congratulations and good luck on your journey to the international crown.

Great gift ideas to give

Between holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries, we humans give a lot of gifts. Gift giving can be a great way to show someone you care and let them know you’ve been thinking of them. Of course, an inappropriate gift can backfire, so it’s important to know what the recipient of your gift likes. All you have to do is listen to ascertain what people like and want. However, sometimes you want to defy expectations and leave an impression. In these cases, here are a few great gift ideas to wow the recipient.

For starters, handmade gifts say to the recipient that you value them enough to work on a gift made just for them. You could write a poem, if that’s your thing, to express to them what they mean to you. Or, you could draw them a picture. You could make something like a pot or a vase. Or, you could build them a decorative box or a piece of furniture. If this sounds complicated, it is, but that’s the reason it’s special, after all. Don’t be afraid to take a class to learn how to make something special.

Another great gift idea is to take someone on a trip. Being surprised with a trip to a tropical destination can really make someone’s day, and it’s something the two of you can share. However, it can be difficult to surprise someone with a trip, as it may not fit their schedule, and then you’ve just wasted money. This gift may also be too much, as it can be seen to be inappropriate outside of a couple or the very best of friends. However, in a case where it seems like a bit too much, consider paying for a solo trip, or for a couple to go together.

Lastly, there’s the crowd pleaser that is personalized swag. A personalized gift, such as a coffee mug with the recipient’s favorite pet on it can be the perfect gift. For gifts like this, shop Personalization Mall to get great personalized items at a great price to make someone’s day.
