Saturday, November 27
Ma'am Lisa Santos and Ma'am Grace Ramos went here to give lectures yesterday. Academic lectures, not those that we remember in college. Hehehe... It was really a pleasant day, no sarcasm in that! The day ended with good "byes" and hopes of seeing all of us [UP arki grads in Davao] in the upcoming Homecoming. Ma'am Lisa even said something like,"... so we can be proud that there are UP grads in provinces like Davao who still uphold the high standards of teaching." Charing!
So the whole hulabalu started when Ligs and I went to fetch Lisa and Grace at Mandaya Hotel. Oh, btw, they said I can call them that way because we are now "colleagues." Hahaha... We ate our lunch at Kuya Eds and I can really sense that the whole thing is kinda awkward. I mean they're our teachers not so long ago, then we're suddenly given full-chika-chika access now?! Good thing Lisa has a lot of stories to share. Well, we tried to loosen up a bit when lunch was over.
We went to UP SOM in anda to get ready for the lecture. The attendance was ok, but relatively fewer than Dytoc's and Evang's talk (accdg. to Ligs). I learned a lot from the lectures... typical of their lectures in school. After the lectures, we had some "kodakan" and "reminiscing." We had dinner at Harana and more kwento about professional practice and whatnot. Lisa even shared her kwento about Kuya Uly taking arch 58 under her over and over again, trying to prove something. But of course she didn't mention his name. I just figured it out.
So there. A simple, yet pleasant day with my former teachers. I hope I made them proud in a way... 'coz I sure am proud to be their student!
