Athena of She’s Dating the Gangster-Inspired Costume #OOTD

February 20, 2015
I take costume parties seriously. Very seriously.
 By now, you’re probably used to me posting about costume OOTDs and all that. Who remembers my Valentina moment? Or my Rapunzel of Tangled venture? lol.
Four days before my birthday, I was given the opportunity to represent my batch in this year’s Mr. and Ms. Department of Communications: Cosplay Edition, where all representatives had to dress up in famous Filipino movie characters. Some went as Filipino icons like Darna, Mulawin, Kampanerang Kuba, etc., while our batch decided to head on over to the “jej side” and go as the tandem in the famous Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo movie, “She’s Dating the Gangster”. HAHAHAHA.
Cat-printed sweater: H&M

Headband: A gift from Korea

Gian sent me this photo on my birthday

Beyond blessed and thankful to have our batchmates! They stuck with us through the end and were the most supportive crowd! They even wore checkered shirts to support me and Aaron (my partner!). Nothing beats Orcom 2016 batch love <3 lol.

For our question and answer portion, Prof. Joey Ogatis asked us this question
“Para sainyo, ano ang pinaka malaki? Isang katerba, isang katutak, o isand kadamakmak?”
Watch this video to find out what we chose. HAHAHAHAAHA. Super benta. =)))
Big thanks as well to my favorite person in the world, Ken! Thank you for watching the show! 🙂

This was a different kind of experience altogether. Aaron and I were so overwhelmed with the love and support we received that day. This just made us realize how blessed we are to be surrounded with the best batchmates ever! 🙂
What a wonderful birthday gift indeed!
PS. I have 3 exams lined up for tomorrow and I’m just taking a break now lol……….. ok bye for now internet HAHA.

Why Are Women Beautiful? :) | Happy Women’s Month from the UP Sigma Alpha Nu Sorority!

Women are beautiful. And strong, and brave, and  courageous.
Hershey 2013-B
“The ability to persevere against all odds is what makes women beautiful– standing bright in their 
glory amidst the shadows of oppression.” 
Mara 2013-A
“Women are beautiful because we create our own sunshine of happiness.”
Cess 2014-A
“Women are beautiful because we firmly fight yet gracefully listen.”
Shane 2014-B
Nat 2013-D
“Women are beautiful because they have the power to create, love, and nurture.”
“Women are beautiful. They don’t need to fight for the limelight because they are naturally endowed with it.”
“We are beautiful simply and exactly because we are women.”

“The things she does and the distinct way she acts reflects the genuineness of her heart; her act of kindness that fills the universe with love manifests the pureness of her soul; the inner peace she constantly engulfs gives her the utmost ability to prepare for tough battles and focus on the bright side of life; but above all, it is a woman’s indomitable spirit that makes her prepare for tough battles that makes her shine amidst the darkness that threatens to swallow her– these qualities matter, and it is because of these facets, that she is crowned beautiful.”
