Badminton at Whackers

And then we played badminton on Taraflex covered wooden courts... I don't think I'd want go back to cement courts ever again.

Miggy, where's the light?

Here are two pictures of Tita Anna and Miggy playing with motion-sensitive t-shirts (that light up).

Miggy's grown up a lot in between!

June 6, 2009.

Due to the rain, the remaining games of the Dual Meet, excluding soccer, were held at the Baker Hall, UPLB.

Photos taken by various photographers. That's what happens when people swap cameras.

Rice: research to production (2009)

People from different nations dropped by the lab as part of the rice production course. They had a blast with the sensory evaluation of rice varieties.

Greg's birthday party in the Grain Quality Lab

June 3, 2009.
Ana's surprise for the week was ruined when Greg showed up with that delicious cake and the homemade rice-and-pandan ice cream. It turned out that he was celebrating ahead of his actual birthday at work because he wouldn't be in IRRI at the time.

Fiesta in Sta Cruz

June 4, 2009.

Some of my friends went with me to Sta Cruz, Laguna for the fiesta... actually, the DINNER after the chaos of the fiesta. Lola Estay, as usual, was flustered by all her guests.

Thanks to Ana, Lucy, Ferdie, Oliver, and Dennis for going with me to Sta Cruz.

And a bigger THANK YOU to my aunts and Lola Estay, and everyone who cooked for the delicious food. :)


Review: Angels and Demons (2009)

Genre: Action & Adventure

Tom Hanks' hairstyle is certainly better in this movie than in the Da Vinci Code. :)

The movie was a great adaptation of the novel, a story about the "attack" of the secret society called Illuminati during the papal conclave. There were a lot of twists and turns in the plot, which kept me on the edge of my seat. People who have read the book and those who haven't would enjoy the film a lot.

A great movie. :)

Lucy's office birthday party (2009)

May 29, 2009. There was another party in her house, over the weekend, which I wasn't able to go to because I had to go to Makati.

Joke time in the lab

This morning, in the lab:

"Ah, kung wala siya ng alas-tres, ibig sabihin nun wala siya ng alas-dos."

Yes, Tita Dory, that sounds very logical. :)
