"Mr. Karon Mark Ramirez Yee," read
the emcee of today's Parangal sa Mag-aaral. Yes, "Mr. Karon,"
he loudly announced as I got my certificate onstage, my face I could sense,
flushed in a humiliating red. Imagine, approaching the UP President with
a name other than my own? My widest smile couldn't even compensate such
a blunder. By

Actually, "Xaverian" and "Xavierian" are used
interchangeably. Even now, you see the two terms used side by side as
in the "freedictionary.com"
website, i.e., "In 1864, Spalding, then Archbishop of Baltimore, asked
the Xaverians to open schools there, and they did so. Baltimore was made
the center of Xavierian activities in the United States, and in 1876 a
novitiate was opened there."

evening. My father would be extremely happy to see all of you here tonight.
He would be pleased to see the outpouring of so much love and affection,
and how special he was to so many people. On behalf of our family, I would
like to thank everyone who offered prayers and support, and everyone who
came to see him during his time of need.

surprising how fast the weather changes here in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
One day, it's a beautiful sunny day with a temperature of 70 degrees.
The next day, it's 25 degrees and white snowflakes fall from the sky.
I view life to be alot like the wheather, uncertain and unpredictable.

holidays is a perfect time to take a break from one's usual hectic grind.
Unfortunately, for most of us, the holidays also brings with it its share
of errands which threatens to deprive us of our much-needed break, afterall.

never wake up early on a Sunday morning because I just think it's not
right to waste the morning out of bed. In fact, only two things can get
me out of bed on a Sunday morning: a "crazy idea"
or a bowling event. On
one particular Sunday morning though, I was out of bed early, drinking
coffee (and I dislike coffee, by the way) in Jun Lim's (XS Batch '90 )
house and my bowling balls never left my house. By

ang college?" I've been asked a hundred times. To put things simply,
going from Xavier High School to the University of the Philippines is
much like switching time zones: from Greenhills to Diliman following the
Edsa Meridian. There are a lot of perks of being in college, most of them
expected but unexpected. By Karol

In this day and age, immediate access to

price his foreign exchange properly and look outfor opportunities to make
money. By Frederick Tiu (XS '79), School Treasurer
