i found a perfect location for my so-called unplanned photo shoot last january 10, thursday.
this is the fidel v. ramos research center at san beda college alabang library which sarah jeon, my lone student in the education department, and i use as our classroom for english214R (teaching strategies in communication arts) every tth at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
initially, it was just a whim for me to have myself be photographed there but later on saw the perfect opportunity of “modeling” my new pashmina shawl which was a christmas gift of miss merly, one of my good friends in san beda. to add, i have something to write about aside from giving you a partial tour of this center. hahahaha…
honestly, sarah and i have been looking for a more conducive room but to no avail. you see, ever since the population in the college of arts and sciences has ballooned, the lack of classroom has become the number one concern of the college department. this is one problem which should be fully addressed by the administration come academic year 2013-2014.
anyway, our occupying the center is still a blessing in disguise. everytime sarah is doing a written work in my course, i would fight boredom and sleepiness by looking at the different memorabilia, books, magazines and pictures about the 12th president of our country. in fact, i have learned that his father, narciso rueca ramos, was also very much into politics having become an assemblyman and ambassador. a journalist and lawyer by profession, i would no longer be wondering why his son trod the same path when he decided to be the top man of our country.
i am no fan of this president but i would stay grateful to him as he was also instrumental for the success of the people power revolution in 1986.
