proud to be… ex-seminarians

October 14, 2006

i missed the photo shoot with workmates at “the fort,” by 4:00PM. i was having a second thought joining them cuz the day was gloomy. besides, i also thought of accepting the invitation of eric, my classmate, for a post birthday celebration of his daughter.

eric, was it really your treat? eh, why did we contribute for the bill?! be specific next time so that i can decide whether to come or not… hehe… i can’t take to attend a blind invitation. 😉

luckily, i was able to have a shoot at FJ’s grille in timog, where eric hosted the little party. i was glad, the management never forbid me when i said i’d post the pix on this site.


resto bar along timog ave






tony suggested that i shoot one of the lamps. he portrayed a lamp in a prison cell.


fortunately, there were no other customers yet. but the crews were eyeing on me. i was just like crazy, posing at every angle to have a good shot. imagine my legs apart, back arched, and head twisted ;-)… worth the bad posture!


chili sauce: obvious ba



fr. melchor & boro tony 


parang lake ng problema ah…  


eric, decs, non, tony, extra 




what were you discussing about? if the girl on the bar was chinese or korean? or who would approach her? me? dyahe!


aldin (the one in white shirt at the back-right) texted non, inviting us at his house in cubao. it was his b-day pala! so we proceeded there. seminarians as always, makukulet pa ren!… hehe… thanks tol for inviting us. it was a good gathering!


nothing changes. still funny and humorous ex-sems. kulang na lang ang venue eh sa seminary!… hehe

    Hello Gideon,

    Yes, it feels good being an ex-seminarian. We may not have become priests though, but we have imbibed the culture of discipline. The character that every man or woman may lack on this generation.

    Thanks for visiting!
