Living up to it's name, it took a year and 4 months after college graduation.
Yeah baby, I finally got hold of my yearbook! :D
Padayon is a Visayan term which means "to continue".
I have always loved yearbooks. In fact, when fire threatened our abode two months back, I immediately threw my elementary and high school yearbooks into my "to save" bag, especially because the latter is the fruit of my labor (and the rest of the ed-board of course :D). That is why the thought of taking a glimpse of the college yearbook always makes me giddy. And yesterday, the long wait is over. Here is my page:
And here's a closer look at my description, courtesy of my friend, Jejo:
Speaking of, another reason why I looked forward to getting my copy of the yearbook is because I wrote some of my classmates' descriptions. And seeing them on print, and seeing how much they loved it, makes me really really proud :-)
However, much as I wanted my page to be perfect, after minutes of scrutiny I found out that they put the wrong creative shot! :-( This is what's supposed to be in the middle frame:
What should have been just a background photo was the one published. Not creative at all. :-( It was disappointing. And the effort put to editing was wasted. Oh well, I just think that at the very least, they didn't misspell my name (so sorry for you, Noreen) or put "Time is gold" in my description. And I am still pretty in that shot! Hahaha.

graduation studio and yearbook publisher of PLM.
Despite the mistake, I still love my yearbook. It may be a heavy addition to my to-save stuff but it's also a memoir of my glorious college days in my beloved Pamantasan.
