A warm welcome

University of Perpetual Help-MOLINO, CAVITE campus 
August 16, 2012

As a student leader and an ex-participant of the United States Practicum, it is my duty to go on public appearances and promote the summer work and travel program hosted by HR international. So, my first stop is my school's sister school, the UPHR-Molino Campus.

Since it was quite far from home, I took a 350php cab on the way there just to not get lost somewhere haha! So, when I got there, I waited in the deans office for the students to get settled. All i know is that im going to speak to only about 50 people, or only the HRM and tourism students, but when we were called to the venue, which is their gymnasium, I think the whole school was there? there were about 200+++ people from different courses.

My nervousness and stage fright just came over me but my adviser told me to suck it in and be natural so, I did, I went up that stage and presented my speech and showed the video I made about my whole USA work life and I believe I convinced them well. As i stepped down the stage, I felt more confident and empowered especially when my adviser, dean and fellow speaker said there was no sign of nervousness from me.. 

After the speech, the college of Tourism took us on a tour to their mini travel mart, they welcomed us with open arms and gave us souvenirs.! This is sure a day that ill remember, Thank you Perps Molino, and to everyone I was with this day! :)

Visiting Thailand!

Nope this Aint Thailand, Its Denver Thai temple!

Our Thai friends Guy, Piaw, Palm (not their real names ok?) are celebrating their new year and they were on the search for their Thai temple ever since they got to the USA. Luckily, they found one which was 2 1/2 hours away from Granby, the place we work. Since all of us, Me, Sherly, Jane and the Thais need to get our Social Security card already, our Resident Assistant Courtney (Gisele) took us to our social security and since we have about 4 hours free time after getting the SSC, we took the chance to find the Thai temple with the help of my epic GPS, good thing it worked though. haha! Anyway We found the temple and the Thais were happy, it was just simply amazing, the giant Buddha statues and all those Golden things. We also did try our fortune from "Buddha" apparently my fortune isn't that good, so I flushed it down our toilet, haha! After the prayer at the Temple, our Thai journey should never end there, we went out to find a Thai restaurant and so we did, we ate at the Thai house just nearby, the food was great and spicy! :)) after that we went to the mall and shopped :) THIS SURE IS ONE DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET. :)
