Awesome weekend!

It was a good weekend for me.

Saturday - had a haircut and got my comics

This was sent to me via twitter... Cute. They made Ellie from "UP" resemble Lola :)

Sunday

Woke up at 4am to go to "Tatakbo ka ba?" It was an ok run for me. Not really happy with the time I got but I had fun. It was a run where I was actually talking to someone. Thank God for my cousin Jem.

I ran for Rock Ed Philippines with JC Medina, Kat Velayo and Ramon Bautista. My life is changing because people recognize me already. People ask me for a picture, so I politely say "sure! :)" It's still weird for me. For my friends reading this, no, I will not change!!! I promise!!! My lola and parents taught me and raised me well. Saw familiar faces at the run.

The Presidentiables

Went to Times for Lunch. Baby James wasn't there since he has the fever... Poor kid... It's still different. I miss my Lola so much. Especially on Sundays... :( We always have our reunions Sundays...

After that, joined my other relatives to watch the Ateneo-Adamson match. My golly! What a stressful game. Adamson put up a fight! Props to Coach Leo Austria and his boys. I got so tired after the game... Grabe! I do want to point out 2 things in this part of my entry. #1, I met this UAAP Fan, Hector, he's a die-hard Adamson fan but he cheers for Ateneo if it's another game because of Bacon Austria. He's a nice guy and very passionate about the game. It's sad because there were "more passionate" Ateneo Alumni who picked on Hector... I hope the "more passionate" fans would give them some slack. Sure, it sucks when your team's down, but the fans of the other side have the right to cheer. Ito na lang, ang pikon... Talo. So Hector, keep on cheering!!! #2, I really appreciated the Captain of The UST Yellow Jackets for giving a speech after the 1st game, he told the people concerned that the last day of registration for voting is on October 30. Good job! We need more youth votes!

Anyway, I might blab already... So I'm off to rest because I'm tired and sleepy already. :)

yes, UP would be way, way up there in my list of most favorite movies of all time too. it did provide profound insights on life, love, loss, and everything else in between, wow!

btw, nice haircut!:)

oh jiggy, you make me want to take up running, and i would, in a heartbeat, if i weren't so heavy!!

I actually agree it looks like lolo ninoy and lola cory but don't worry there in a better place now also they could have used the little boy as u and ellie as lola cory and the old guy next to ellie as lolo ninoy:)

i love the fact that you stay humble despite the fame that you are getting and i also appreciate it when you told your friends that you won't change... i hope everyone will be as grounded even if they are at the height of their life...

hi jiggy! i've been checking your blog since your Lola Cory passed away and this will be my first time to leave a comment.

anyway, i chanced upon this acronym for choosing the right leaders this coming election. just thought i'd share it with you so you can also share it with the rest.

it's C.H.O.O.S.E.
-CALCULATE (risk of running into an office, or electing the person into office)
-HUMILITY (servant not as a king of evil deeds)
-OPPORTUNISTIC DESIRE (to be rich out of taxpayers' money)
-OATH OFFICE (Serving God, that means serving people and being prayerful)
-SINCERITY (feasible plans for the people), and
-ENERGY (to overcome the pressure of being in the office)

Godbless and continue to inspire other people.

hi jiggy!

I'm not an early riser but I intentionally woke up early to watch the "Tatakbo ka ba?" on GMA 7... It's really nice to see a rare event wherein most of the presidential and vice-presidential hopefuls were gathered together... But know what's the main reason why I set my alarm clock that morning??? It's because I know that you will be present on that event! :) I became a follower of your blogs because of your passion for the country and your personality as well - just as what my mom usually says everytime she sees you on TV: "that child reminds me so much of ninoy and cory"... that does not only mean on a physical level of course, but the overall "package" as well...

"Let's put our country first" - sure, let's prioritize our beloved Philippines! :)

More power and Godbless, jiggy! :)
