A Smile of Hope

The Pisay ’96 Streetkids Christmas Party is a project of our high school batch, just like the medical missions and other things we’ve done the past year or so. We understand that the long–term merits of a simple party may be questionable, but to put a smile of hope in these kids’ faces is more […]

A blog in photos

My life has now been limited to photos, or at least my blog. For now. At least I’m blogging again. 😉 Hehe. More photos from Mimi’s birthday celebration at Route 196. More photos from our Rocked Radio/NU107 invasion. Too bad we never tried the Airheads idea.

Pisay ’96 Medical Mission

I’m not gonna explain nor justify our efforts, instead I’m gonna plead for support and progressive ideas as we take bolder steps to making a difference. Of course I took photos (mirror […]

Another year…

I just found out I rarely write about my birthday on my birthday, and of the three references to this event on this weblog, only one was actually written on the exact date. And it didn’t make much sense, much like this one. On the eve of my 28th year of existence, we were just […]
