Mommy and Me Monday; MYM & RT#5: UST Quadricentennial Anniversary


As an alumni of the University of Sto. Tomas, the oldest Catholic University in Asia and to show my gratitude to the school that taught me more than scholastic knowledge, I, together with my family attended its 400th Anniversary.

It was a week long celebration, but since I am a working mom, I decided to join the festivities on the 27th, the eve of UST's anniversary and attended the Thanksgiving Mass on the 28th.

To welcome it's 400th year, UST gave it a bang. At exactly 11:45, the pyrolympic show started which lasted for at least 20 minutes. It was said that the King of Spain donated an amount for this purpose. All of us enjoyed the spectacular show. UST grounds were filled with not just current students but also alumni and their families.

After the fireworks display, we still went around the campus to experience more of UST's celebration.

I'm just so proud to be a Thomasian!

Those are some happy family shots!


Tonight, my dear, I’m seeing red—
Or is it puce or rose?
Whatever’s going round my head
Is tingling all my toes.

My heart, my dear, becomes inflamed
With passion sore ablaze;
Perhaps it is because I miss
Your glowing, crimson gaze.

Whate’er the cause, my face is flushed
Like a ripened cherry,
No longer healthy, but inflamed—
See the vessels serry*?

A certain sanguine aftertaste
Is clinging to my tongue,
For I have kissed your ruby lips—
To which the claret clung.

*serry – (archaic) to crowd closely together
