While cleaning out my hard drive, I found this picture. This was originally edited by Jeni (by putting the letters on each picture). With those pictures I stumbled upon, I tried to make it a gif, just for fun.

I miss this band so much.

*PS. Kuya Manny doesn’t have a picture with this. Too bad.

I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who, well, for quite some time now. I’ve known it since David Tennant was still the current Doctor at that time (I think I was still in 2nd year high school and now I’m in 4th year college. Pretty long time already). And now Doctor Who is getting more and more popular and it doesn’t only getting popular with the show itself, but also with its characters, merchandises and even the fashion it demonstrates.

Cosplay is a well-known activity or to other people, it is a lifestyle already. I see a lot of Doctor Who cosplays over the net and I cannot let myself not try it, especially it just uses simple clothes.

The 11th Doctor sytle is very easy to imitate. He just wears simple brown coat, long sleeves, maroon/blue bowtie and suspenders (usually it matches with the same color and he wears it alternately, depending on the episodes), black pants and boots.

Before I show my raggedy style, I’ll show first the 11th Doctor. Matt Smith portrays the 11th Doctor.



For this time I tried the 11th Doctor style, with his simple blue bowtie, suspenders, black pants and dark brown blazer/jacket. To mix with my own style, instead of wearing boots, I wore a slip-on black checkered Vans.






The dark blazer I’m wearing is not really similar with the 11th Doctor. I just improvised with darker brown blazer.




Without the dark brown jacket. The long sleeves I’m wearing, I think, doesn’t suit me. I don’t like my chest being emphasized. Though it compliments the blue bowtie and suspenders.




A close up picture of myself, emphasizing the blue bowtie and blue suspenders.



The 11th Doctor style is very cute and simple, and it can be worn anytime and anywhere. It’s not really obvious as a cosplay outfit. True blue Whovians can recognize the outfit, though. 🙂

Oragon, a Bicolano slang for somebody who is described to be as feisty, determined, unafraid of consequences, fighter and someone who stands up for his principles. These words are to describe what will be the (delegates to) UAPSA Area B Assembly.

The Annual Area Assembly organized by UAPSA (United Architects of the Philippines – Student Auxiliary) for over many years is one of the events where architecture students (especially UAPSA members) have been waiting for every half year. This is the gathering of Architecture students, particularly UAPSA members, with their co-Area universities every October. (depending where their school is located at — so for us UST, we’re located at Area B.) With Area B, we gather with Greater Manila schools (FEU, MLQU, MIT, CSB, etc.,) and Southern Luzon schools (CVSU, BatSU, Bicol State., etc.).

For this year, entitled Oragon, the Area B Assembly was located in Aguirangan Island, Presentacion and Caramoan in Camarines Sur in Bicol for 3-days, 2-nights, from October 25-27, 2012.

UAPSA-UST had 28 delegates for this assembly. Awesome bonding with the chapter delegates.

This assembly was such an adventure.

We tried almost all death defying kinds of transportation in the duration of this event — 10-hour bus ride with the typhoon waiting for us in Bicol and during the course of the ride, we have witnessed 5 road accidents, rough road trip in a jeepney and boat rides (the last boat ride we had was the most scary because it was already dark and we thought the boat is already overloaded thinking that we might sink. :|).

The island hopping with breathtaking sceneries.

Honor Dinner:
Mr. & Ms. UAPSA.
We played with the electric candle lights, and then we got attention with it. :))

Vince, Egbert and I joined the Structural Making Competition. And fortunately, we won the 1st place. Good job team! And of course, thank you! 😀

During the competition.

Our monsterpiece.

Our faces.

We event met our blockmate, Ariel Raquitico, in our stop over in Naga.

Window Chatting with UAPSA-BatSU

This is probably the best adventure in an assembly we had so far.

Until the next assembly & congress! 🙂
