Time Management!


I was scheduled to meet my thesis adviser to discuss about my paper, after our discussion i stepped out in their office with so many things stock on my mind. You have to change this and that, improve this and that, delete this kind of stuff and everything! that what's my adviser told me.='(, i thought everything was okay but that thought was wrong!! we have to submit our second draft on Nov. 2 at the same time it is also our midterm week, i have pending projects that i have to work on and i need to pass it on the day of our exam, journals, collections, case analysis and reports...ggrrrrr.... what am i going to do? which things i need to do first? while i was walking in the corridor going to my second class a while ago my tears fell because im worrying that much, thinking and wondering how? all i know by now is i want someone to talk to, someone i can share my tantrums and other stuff...hope everything would  be okay..hope i can do this..God please help me and guide me, and can i ask a favor? can you please send me someone who can motivate me, and inspire me in all the things i need to do...please send him to me again just for one time... 

doing thesis alone is not easy, but need to work on this....someday all the efforts, time, money that i spend on this would be worth gonna makes sense someday........

While waiting for the rain to stop the guard in front of me shout "taft!akic!,taft,akic" referring to the school i decided to ride in the ejeep going to the main building, but still i came late in my buslaw2 class, but anyway the flow of the discussion was smooth, my professor is always in the mood to discuss every topic and he always make the whole class laugh every time he notice us that were getting bored about the discussion ooppss except the pabibo students...:) i wont forget this day!! the best ever laugh trip i experience in his class, the first was poch! 2nd was me because of some reason, and 3rd one is azza and the rest is history...i will not forget the favorite line of our prof.

A night in triangle

This was the most awaited week of all the DLS-CSB student, a one week vacation after 3 months of spending our time in doing our projects, term papers, quizes, exams, etc. Since its our term break and we have a one week vacation azza and i decided to run in ayala triangle last night, actually we planned to run last week but since we have a busy schedule and its our final exam in one of our major subject we decided to drop by in triangle and watched the people run in that area. after that we went off to adidas glorietta to ask for the passport. Then last night we push through our plan, and i invited one of my friend to joined with us. When we were there we saw a group from that were supposed to joined but unfortunately were shy to approach them. So we started to run and we followed the pacing of the group. It was fun and tiring though relaxing as well. We find time to relax and released our stress after the toxic days from school. Sad to say but we can’t do it again next week because the second term is about to open on Sept. 20, 2010 and we have class schedule every Tuesday since the session of the adination is every Tuesday only.  But still we look forward to meet the adination ayala peeps and the other takbo peeps...

Lonely but happy Sunday morning!

September 5, 2010..I woke up early this morning to prepare and what stuffs to bring on my scheduled run. The event was a “Heritage Run” a campaign of Department of Tourism to promote the Manila  and attract tourism as well. On my way on the said event i noticed that there were some students waiting in LRT, wearing their NSTP uniform, i found out that there was an Alay Lakad also on that same day. When i reached the V.cruz station it was another big event, i heard drums rolling and yells coming from the front of our school, when i went down i remember  it was the first day of the Bar Exam held in La Salle.  There were lots of future lawyers waiting in the middle of the taft v.cruz, some where busy glancing on their reviewer while others  were waiting on the side of stores. I was with choi that time  he saw also  his runningmates  and other groups when we were in LRT, we ride a shuttle going to PICC when the jeepney stops near BSP the group decided to jog going to Manila film center then i have no choice i joined in their group, for me they were veterans! Veterans when it comes to running! ;D  For them LSD was just a simple run but for  me because im a newbie its not. I can’t go along with their fast paces. In short i left alone and i ran alone from PICC going to manila city hall. Hahaha poor me! :D but still i had fun because it was my first time to run in manila bay area there were lots of joggers, runners, bikers and ageing people who joined in aerobics session there. At the same time it didnt makes me boring because i enjoyed on what ive seen while running,
 especially students who joined the alay lakad that time (oopss i miss my h.s days). When i reached intramuros manila i decided to change route and go home.. now i know i can run alone, but i can’t live alone in this world. :P

Be Happy :-)

grabbed pic. from net =)
I want to share about the book I read last time; one night I  don’t know why my feet pushed me to go to our LRC and brought me into the book shelved where this book(How to be really really happy J) was located. When I borrowed it I don’t even think why that book was in my hand, suddenly while looking in the front and back of the book I realized that it was made by Bo Sanchez. He is also the author of the Christian magazine “Kerigma”. He's an author, entrepreneur, preacher and lay Evangelist in the Philippines..

While waiting the train in Vito Cruz station on my way home I started to read the book that I borrowed. Laugh trip from the first story up to the last at the same time very inspiring, and to think that time I was so depressed because of some reason, God knows how to put smile on my face, I immediately finished the whole book that night and until now it stick in my head each and every story that he wrote on it. I felt quite relieved after reading the book, and I realized that I am still blessed even without  expensive material stuffs on my hand, I am blessed because of so many reasons and I still have my family with me, a very dear friends and colleagues, batch mates, classmates, and even acquaintances that I treasured a lot. Those are the people that I can’t live without.  Ooops don't forget the jeepmates, trainmates, hahah esp. our drivers

Remember And when things go wrong you must not quit, face challenges fearlessly and in the end you will get your reward.

Few weeks ago my classmates encounter the same feeling I felt last time, so I told him about the book, I share it also to my other batch mates and they find time to read it,  after reading it they told me that the book was helpful. So if you want to be happy find time to read this book its great! I’m not here to promote  the book and not also an avid fun of Mr. Bo Sanchez but I’m here to share some happy experiences that we had. Enjoy!!
i think the reason why i borrowed it its because he wanted me to smile and think happy thoughts..=)

Proud to be! wear your green and white! Fight! =)

I attended the scholars fair yesterday in our school and were required to attend coz if not we have to pay for the T-shirt and the food.  Together with my batch mates we had fun on that day! Different people from different type of scholarships from athletes, dancers, singers, pep squad, Basap, SOFA etc. And im proud and lucky coz i belong to BASAP batch 13!.  De La Salle - College of St. Benilde gave me another opportunity to grow to explore and to give my best as a person and as a student. most of us in our department are working, but were eager to learn more, despite of the busy schedule and the toxic days in our working environment we keep on trying to reach our goals. in fact were the luckiest people in DLS-CSB coz were not paying  much high tuition fees and were using a high tech facilities in our school, but being a scholar is not an easy job, you need determination, focus and perseverance to reach the top!You have to know your priority or even set aside your social life for the mean time =( sad but its true. me i gave up my career for this opportunity coz  i know someday im gonna use this to fulfill my dreams! 

Thanks to Saint La Salle and Saint Benilde!
Thanks to De La Salle - College of St. Benilde! i will treasure this until my last breath,  i will never forget that i became part of this program and i will share this to other who are in need...thanks to those people behind this program,  and thanks for the wonderful memories (friends, faculty, staff, batch mates)........



                                                                            ANIMO LA SALLE!

According to our Bro. President Vic Franco FSC, scholars of DLS-CSB are all diamonds! =)

First time runners!

Yat’s and the Gang! On the Run!

I remember the last time I made a blog about running stuff. And now finally I knew what the real thing about joining in this event!

July 18, 2010, nice weather for the first time runner like me, it was a cloudy Sunday and I was in The fort together with my friends to join in the event of “One Run One Family One La Salle” it’s a fun run for the benefit of the “One Million Trees” Campaign of La Salle..

Me, and my friends Azza, Cris, Kux, Paul, Tanya and batch mate karen joined in a 3k run, everyone is excited from different La Salle Schools, students, professors, alumni’s were yelling at the starting lane,6:05 am the 3k run was started. On the half of the race some of them started to get tired, and started to walk, some are thirsty and some are complaining about their legs maybe most of us are first timers....

Anyway the event was fun, the people are friendly and the gang was full of energy though most of us were hungry and last is the great bonding. Thanks to Kux who always make us laugh! =D laugh trip all the way after the run...

and finally after a few months of curiosity about fun run I finally made it together and run with my closest friends! I'm planning it before the last time I made a blog about it, but since I don’t have time and I don’t know who’s the one I could grabbed to joined with me coz most of us are busy, I’ll just wait for the right time to come. And it happened! I love my will power! =)

It was a self fulfilling when we finished the 3k, even though were not that so good, and our legs get hurt for 2 days and I don’t know how to stepped down the stairs of LRT because of the pain  but still we had fun. And were planning again to join in another fun run! Woooohoooo! I can’t wait!

Race Result:

Paul 22.39
vel 24.28
Kux 25.58
Azza 31.56
Tanya 31.57

Brand for many of us is an identity of the product. Before having a good brand name made a good profit for a company. It’s easy for them to promote it in the market, and by using the 3 traditional ads which are Television, Prints, and Radio they invest a lot to make ads for the product. But within this traditional ad campaign they reach limited customers, because not all people have time to watch television because nowadays both men and women are now working, they are the typical people who leave early in the morning in their house and came home late.  Maybe they’ve seen some ads campaign through billboards but it’s limited. Those are some fact that the company didn’t notice. If your product is a well known brand like for example “Bench” they also used the traditional ads campaign but for some maybe the “Bench” company no need to advertise, why? Because it is a well establish brand and people already tried their product and still go back in their store to buy their stuff. They also used a celebrity endorser to endorse their product. But what about the faceless brand? Before if you are a company and owning a product which is not well known in the market your company is at risk. But now because of the new technology there are many things we can do through the use of internet.  And you don’t need higher amount of money to advertise your product; in a virtual world only thing you need is to know how to make an ad in the net, and it’s up to you also as a company owner if you want a paid advertisement or not.  Like in Seven Eleven which is their Big bite” before their Big bite product is not a well known product, you will only know about if someone told you to try to taste it. In that way it is also the way of transferring information to others through word of mouth. Another one is the Bayantel Lola Techie ad campaign in television, now they enter in a new world which is the virtual world they create a fan page for the endorser(lola techie), even the twitter, and plurk, through this campaign they create a big traffic and they reach thousands of people through internet.

Having a faceless brand today is not a big issue, its up only to the company what strategies they will use to promote their product. Especially for those companies who can’t afford to use the traditional ad campaign, they can enter in the internet world and place their ad for free. Great imagination and creativity is the only key to be successful, and entering in virtual world is the answer for those who want to promote their product. And there are many social networking sites which are free, like facebook, multiply, friendster etc. they can even post their product in the other sites which also free and plus the fact that right now the number of internet users here in the Philippines are continue rising.

Cell Phone all in one!

Many of the consumers nowadays depend on a cellphone which have more features.  Promegranate NS08, this phone has lots of features, it is actually a functional phones with coffee brewer, video projector, live voice translator, harmonica and even shave, this are only the additional feature of this Promegranate NS08 where you can't find in any other phone. But the question is is this for real?

Actually the campaign was good, and quite interesting, in this kind of advertisement it caught the attention of thousands of people in the internet world and all over the world, the company spend too much for this ad campaign which became really successful. The Promegranate Phone ad  campaign was part of the Nova Scotia which spend $300,000.
Nova Scotia is one of the small province in Southeastern Canada. The ad was to promote the small province for the tourist, the government of Nova Scotia need to find a unique way to promote their place, and they come up with this kind of ad where people are very into a newest and latest smartphones.

All in all the ad campaign was pure fake but in the end it is really an eye catching campaign. Because thousands of people keep on searching about the phone just to look what's best features about it.
And in this ad they reach not only the people from Canada but all over the world to inform and to promote the place of Nova Scotia.

Nescafe Samalamig

Nescafe Samalamig one of the requirement of our professor in Electronic Marketing or EMARKE, he told us to make a reaction about the commercial, what would be the impact to the viewers and make suggestion about it.There are are two TV commercials launched by Nestle and here is one of the sample of the Nescafe "Samalamig"

as i noticed the first samalamig commercial launched last 2006 with a cute reggae music focused only on the sexy girls on the beach and caught the attention of one guy sitting on the shore and drinking his cold nescafe coffe, the second commercial was launched in last 2009 the shot was still in the beach but it was mixed by a men and women and it was like the models are preparing for the war but in fact they were preparing for the ice cold nescafe coffee.
since it was a cold version of coffee they released it on summer season where people going crazy to go to the beaches to chill and this is also the way of  nestle company to promote their coffee even in hot summer season but they put a twist on the coffee.

another ads by Nestle is the 

1. "LIKE" Nescafe Philippines Fan Page.
2. Email a photo of you with your Nescafe Samalamig drink along with a write-up to
3. Most liked photo entries get a chance to win IPADS!

this ads encourage the facebooks users or the internet users to visit their social networking page in facebook and by clicking the "LIKE" button it also gives impact to the company and to the product itself. because by visiting the page it creates traffic at the same time users will get some info about whats new on nescafe coffee. This page also encourage the people to drink or to try the nescafe coffee because they have the photo contest including the short write ups about their experience in preparing their nescafe samalamig coffee.

The Web Site

Nestle create a website for the nescafe, in this picture you can see here on what their website have, if you are a coffee addict you can visit their website and click samalamig recipe and you will see their different flavors and mixes using nescafe coffee.
but there is one thing who caught my attention,The Pinoytastic adventure of poreyn gerry, a foreigner guy named gerry. a guy who has a pusong pinoy! =)

since nestle come up with the big marketing campaign and spend lots of money for the commercial of samalamig the product has give a good impact to the viewers and same with the internet users especially those people who spend their time online.
Their photo contest and write ups also give them the assurance on how people react on their product, with that they can improve more the quality of the nescafe base on the write ups and reactions of the consumers about their product.
They can also promote a game for summer that will cater to those students who wants adventure since they made an adventure of poreyn gerry, i think it is good also to make a contest like amazing race, and for those who wants to join they will visit the website of nescafe samalamig to know about the mechanics of the said contest. They will only look for the information through online.

UAAP Season 73 Teaser

Side Trip! The Lingayen & Zambales escapade


From Lingayen to Zambales
Finally after 3 weeks! this is how the story goes ;)
Plus the fact that Lingayen is also one of the historical places in the Philippines.

After we enjoyed some stuff under the sun we went to another artist place which was kuya Patrick’s Bacolor place, they prepared food for us *yummy* ;) and exchanged different stories from different people, different ideas about arts. That was a great escape with kaye and the Dagupan Artist. Even for a while we made a short escape but memorable. We wont forget the warm welcome and the yummy food they prepared for us.but sad we didn’t push our second plan which is anawangin because we don’t have enough time and another thing was we have work scheduled for the following day..but we enjoy our stay in Lingayen! Thanks to the Dagupan Artist kuya Patrick, Boni, Jojit and Pats! Until the next BANGUS FESTIVAL!!

Another place to remember was Zambales, when you say Zambales one thing came to your mind was a delicious taste of their Mango*drooling* =p, but some people doesn’t even know about the secluded beach there. So if you want a great escape or sweet escape visit this place!

First stop Camara Island, six in the morning we started the Island hopping getaway together with our bankero manong Rolly our first stop was the Camara Island were the San Marino corned tuna commercial (with marian & ding dong cast) was shot. It was a small island but it has a beautiful and powdery white sand with a huge of different rock formation =)..Near the island was the small camara island too. You can also stay here overnight but remember there are no electricity here and no phone signal. In front of these island was the pundakit a 5 to 10 minutes travel by boat from pundakit proper going here in Camara Island.


Second Capones Island
Capones Island was also a big island a 15 minutes boat ride from pundakit, you can go up there to see the light house and the real beauty of the water and the other Island

It was a relaxing place,great venue for pre-nuptial shoot because of the nice and romantic view. Except for the creepy lighthouse =) but all in all it was amazing! You will appreciate the real creation of God and how creative he is! =)

Third stop Anawangin the place to be.! It was a very cozy place a combination of Boracay and Baguio a white sand beach (mixed of lahar sand and beach sand) the pine tree were you can only seen in Baguio, the clear sea water and the island itself that there are no electricity and no phone signal(like cast away or the beach movie type). 

You can explore in the Island actually there is a river at the back of it were lots of people taking pictures you can stay there if you want or take a walk and go to other side of anawangin but always remember to be safe.
The place was really nice there were lots of campers and beach lovers stayed in the island. If you want to stay there overnight you have to bring your own tent coz there are no cottages or room there to stay.  And if you have problem about the comfort room there are 5 I think comfort rooms there, but the water is came from poso so its not safe to drink bring your own drinking water

How to get there?
You can ride a bus Victory Liner(Caloocan or Cubao branch) going to Iba Zambales tell to the driver to drop you to San Antonio. The fare from Caloocan to San Antonio Zambales was
Php 251(as of May 2010) and From San Antonio ride a tricycle going to pundakit(much better to have a contact person in that place, tricycle fare was Php 100.00 and for you safety don’t travel at night because the road going to pundakit was very dark so better to travel early in the morning or afternoon but not in the evening (better safe than be sorry).. Island hopping is about Php 1200 to 2000 good for 2 to 3 person and you will visit the three islands which are Camara Island, Capones & Anawangin. But if you don’t want the island hop and want to stay only in Anawangin you would pay Php 1000.00 for the boat from pundakit to anawangin back and fort. And you have to pay Php 100.00/each as entrance fee and set up your tent for an overnight stay. Bring your own food coz there’s no public market there only the sari-sari store. But early in the morning there’s someone selling fresh fish in Pundakit Island you can buy there if you want, but it is nice if you could bring your own food so you can save your money.

If you don’t want to stay overnight in Anawangin you can also stay in Pundakit Island, there’s an electricity and phone signal there and you can also avail a room from P1500 and up. There are lots of adventurer also stay and spend their night there and the following day early in the morning they started their island hopping. Until our next trip!

Always make sure that your things are in safe! You can bring sip lock plastic bag so you can put there your e-gadgets while traveling in a boat since the water condition is unpredictable.

forever I will.......

 BY: JRA....
Another night, another day
things come and go so fast
and there you go, you come my way
without knowing how things happen this way

You made me laugh even in a simple way
you also made me smile every single day
You light  up my world when it turns to gray......

Your eyes, your smile makes me weak....
Your voice tickles me every time you speak

I hate to see you with someone else
It makes me jealous and kills me into pieces
Coz you hurt my feelings and throw it away...

Maybe for you I am geek or weird
but all i can tell you what i feel for you is true
no matter what you say I will stay here
but if you want me to leave just say it clear
but before i go i want to tell you

sometimes we have to be alert on the things coming on our way, cherish every moment of our life
treasured everything, every person who touch your life and walk with you in your journey no matter how short or long the time you spent time together.
some may go and take another path, some chose to stay and make sure everything will be okay...
Ive met different kind of people, all of them are became friend of mine, i cherished them and respect their thoughts
they are the people also cherished me and accept me for being who and what i am..
My name is "Jovel"  come and make friend with me...:)

Good night!

I am not a running enthusiast or a marathon addict but one thing i noticed was many people are going crazy about this thing, when im doing my research about my thesis paper I read about the growing population of a runners here in the Philippines, i was surprised because i have no idea with that, i have some friends who's also into this kind of activity, which is actually good to our health. :) but not me.. The only RUN i knew was when our school conduct a Fund raising campaign for scholarship or the so called " One Run, One Family, One La Salle"..but the rest i don't have any clue.. :) i want to share this because  i'm so curious about this kind of activity and i want to try it hope someday if i have time or chance :)..
Me and my friends tried to join in a fun run before but sad to say i'm having a hard time in waking up early in the morning so i decided not to other words TAMAD!!.. :) 
but because of the stress i feel right now i want to release it in some other way or in different way.....hhhhmmmmm should i try it? i think i have to invite first some friends to join me......... :)

lakad ako ng lakad pero parang wala naman akong patutunguhan, nakakaramdam ako ng pagod pero bakit di ako tumitigil? san ba talaga ako patungo? kung sino sino na ang nakakasalamuha ko pero parang wala naman matino? may mga hinahanap ako pero bakit parang di ko naman matagpuan? Minsan gusto ko na rin sumuko pero di ko alam kung paano, habang lalu kong sinasabi "ayaw ko na" lalu naman akong lumalaban nag papatuloy sa mga nasimulan..Hanggang kailan ba talaga ako ganito? hanggang saan ba talaga ang kaya ko? Isa lang ngayon ang gusto ko..makasama ang isang tao na di ko pa nakilala sa buong buhay ko, yung taong handang makinig sa mga sasabihin ko...yung taong handang ibigay ang balikat para iyakan ko..o kaya naman isang tao na kahit kelan di ako iiwan, Pasensya na sa mga kagagahan ko...wala lang ako ng magawa kaya ganito ako..napapagod pero ngumingiti pa rin kahit pano kahit minsan kasabay nito patak ng luha mula sa mga mata ko...
