Araullo University

This is the facade of the school where I took up my Bachelor's Degree in Accountancy and subsequently my Bachelor's in Liberal Law.
I love this school. This school gave me so much honors. The school paraded and honored me when I passed the CPA Board Exam. Then, the school gave me recognition by awarding me as their most outstanding alumnus in 2005 for the College of Commerce. That is why to reciprocate from what they have done to me, I try to exemplify and be a role model of the graduates of this University.

Cabanatuan City

Two of my friends from Recoletos Review School went to Cabanatuan City to attend a birthday party. They asked me to tour them around the City. But since they only had limited time coz they are going back to Manila the same day, I could only present only a small portion of what the City could offer.

Courtroom Jokes

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place. Ang kulet!

Q: Are you sexually active?
A: No, I just lie there.

Mahirap Ba?

Naykupo!!! It's my first day back on the job and everyone is already calling me attorney. Sabi ni Jamilton pag may tumawag daw ng ganon sayo dapat i-ow mo na yung title as if nakapasa ka na sa bar. So, with that it mind, whenever they call me attorney, I just smile at them and says "Sana magdilang anghel kayo". But nevertheless, parang lalo yata akong kinakabahan 'coz buong tao yata sa City Hall eh alam na kumuha ko ng exam. Sus.
Then, they would ask me "Mahirap ba ang bar?". My response would be, "Yes, it is difficult and I will never take the BAR again.
Looking back, the six-month review-examination period has been one of the hardest six-months of my life. Eventhough I graduated at the top of my class, there are still some lessons and laws that were new to me come review time. In fact, during the examination period, there are questions that I haven't got any idea on how to answer like a question in Political Law that asked "Who is the President of ICJ and what is his nationality?" or a question in Taxation that asked "What is Tax Pyramiding and what is its constitutional basis?". Moreover, if not for the examination in Criminal Law, I would have smiled more. Grabe. But nevertheless, I think I have given the BAR exam everything that I got. I just hope and pray and pray and pray that come March or April, my name is one of those included in the passers' list. Wish me luck and pray with me.

A Well Deserved Rest

I have been sleeping for ten days now. Whew. Taking the BAR has taken a lot of me - emotionally, physically and mentally. It was definitely one of the toughest six months of my life. Now the waiting game has begun. Six more months. With GOD's help and prayers and wishes from u guys, I know and I feel that those six agonizing months will be time worthly spent.
I will be back to work on Monday, and of course, I will be blogging again by then.
