Yung nagsponsor na si Bro. Jun Garcia ng dinner sa Shangrila ay sobrang generous. Nagparaffle ng maraming gadgets nung dinner, at nagparaffle din ng 4 na 100,000.
Sobrang galante, sya din nagsponsor ng 50th Anniv sa Manila Hotel ten years ago. At nagbigay pa ng Php. 20,000 tip sa waiter.
UE batch '65 sya. Napangasawa nya yung anak ni Felix Manalo. Sya ang current contractor na gumagawa ng mga sambahan ng INC.
Opo ate kamote totoo daw yan.Php 240million napunta sa bayad dun sa lupa tapos Php 10 million daw yung nagastos sa pag landscape.
Totoo yan pero hindi yan binili, according sa UE Dawn dati on-lease yan sa Buencamino Family. Pero baka nga binili talaga.
Off-topic ka kamote, hindi naman yan news.
UE Trivia yan eh. Talagang pagpipilitan eh noh?haha
So gawa ka ng bagong thread para dyan basta kaya mo imaintain eh haha.
Rouge, salamat sa pakain kagabi! Ang sarap nung menudo! Haha!
Congrats ulit sa tatay mo sa pagpasa sa Bar Exams!

By UE on March 16, 2012
University of the East College of Law Dean Amado D. Valdez was re-elected, unanimously, as President of the Philippine Association of Law Schools (PALS) during its annual convention held at the Marriott Hotel last November 25-26, with Vice President Jejomar C. Binay as guest of honor and speaker.
PALS, a non-stock corporation composed of 112 law schools nationwide, was established in 1967 to be “a primary driving force to uplift the standards of legal education in the Philippines that meet both global standards of excellence and at the same time serve as catalyst for both the economic and human development in Philippine Society…”
According to Dean Valdez, the PALS will hold its general membership meeting on Tuesday, March 20, to discuss ways to sustain the gains of the new BAR Exam format as far as the ability to perform basic legal work in order to contribute to social order as the framework for economic recovery.
Valdez also said that, “The PALS will adopt a strict position on law student fraternities to eliminate brutality in screening membership. Fraternities could be effective instrument in the quality of law practice in the Philippines for as long as the rule of law is given higher consideration over fraternal beliefs”.

UE student-produced “Sana” garners second prize in Senate-sponsored film making contest
By UE on February 29, 2012
The University of the East’s (UE) student-produced “Sana”, a 15-minute short film, was declared second-best winner in the 2011 Senate Short Film Making Competition, after qualifying as one of four finalists, out of 12 entries from twelve schools. The theme of this nationwide competition was, “What do people expect from their parliament?”
The short film centers on a family’s take on current burning issues like poverty, insufficient employment benefits, gender equality and family planning, as the family members gather for dinner.
Acting the roles of the family members are UE students Joseph Paguntalan as “Tatay”, a government employee; Gale Carmona as “Nanay”, a housewife; Christine Buenaflor as “Bea”, the daughter and a college student; Ashcan Gallos as “Jun”, the son and a homosexual; and Princess Sarah Rodilla as “Kekay”, the youngest daughter.
“Sana” was produced by the Kape’t Alak Production, formed by UE College of Arts and Sciences Manila (UE CAS Mla.) sophomore students, namely, Broadcast Communication majors: “Sana” writer and Director Nikolai Alcomendras, Executive Producer Roxanne Garay, Production Manager Maria Evangelista Carlos, videographer Reymart Romero, Light Director Jann Carlo Cardenas, Gladys Abalos, and Kriza Garcia; Journalism majors: Editor Lourence Carale and videographer Razel Roland; and Political Science major: Ariane Telebrico, Consultant.
Alcomendras attributed their win to the dedication of the production staff and the actors under the able supervision of their professor, Ramon A. Nuñez. She also acknowledged the encouragement and support extended by UE CAS Manila Dean Justina Evangelista, Associate Dean Rene Salvania and Prof. Nuñez.
More than the cash prize of P15,000 and a trophy they received, the group considers the feeling of fulfillment and valuable learning experiences as their most important prizes from the competition, Alcomendras relates. According to her, “Representing UE in this commendable competition was already a great achievement, but being recognized as among the best is the utmost accomplishment. I am truly pleased to be a part of this amazing experience. My KAP (Kape’t Alak Production) family, thank you very much and I love you all.”
