Photo #259: September 16

I went to the College of Human Kinetics today for an interview about being a long-time supporter of the UP men’s basketball team. I also purchased tickets for Wednesday’s games. While waiting, I met a new friend and old ones, and it was so much fun reminiscing about college and high school!!! Nice to meet you, Jasper! Great talking with you, Mela and Ma’m Josie!  #UPFight




2019 Project 365, Day 223: The Great UP Run 2019

Photo #223: August 11

I finished 5k in a little over an hour. Still proud of myself since I’m not really into running. I ran solo because my boyfriend and other friends chose 21k. Here are some interesting conversations I overheard:

A guy to his girlfriend at the starting line: “Okay lang ba mauna ako?” The gf agreed, and they kissed. 
A group of oldies along Katipunan: “Dapat pinasunod natin ung driver!”
Another group of oldies along CP Garcia: “Run tapos eat, but don’t forget yung maintenance! Cholesterol!”
A couple with their kid near the science complex: “Ayan ang college ni mama, at ayan naman kay papa!”
A mother to her kid near UPIS: “What do you want to eat after?” Kid says Yabu. “Ay wow 3k lang tayo, ‘nak, pero pang 42k yung gusto mo kainin!”

I don’t know if I’ll do this again, but two things are for sure: one, I ran on my own, but I didn’t feel alone, and two, whenever I am in UP…. “‘Di rin magbabago ang damdamin!”  #TheGreatUPRun2019
