...a very impressive for ATENEO and UP.


  1. that was amazing! last year, UP was number 18(?). vast improvement for both schools. i'm from a family of UP grads so that's great news.

  2. i hope it still improves... we are way ahead of that a generation ago... but slowly, nalampasan tayo ng ibang schools dito sa southeast asia!

  3. hmm.. first, that goodnews about oil production, now this... these make me really proud!

  4. I studied in University of Bristol and it is ranked No. 32 this year.

  5. Yosh!

    My university's name was not there. I wonder why...maybe because our university is more on Engineering and doesnt have a lot of courses...


    but, we still the best!

  6. wow congrats sa school ng sis ko. sshool ko wala eh lols. oero kahit na ayos na rin kasi pinas naman nirerepresent nila.

  7. That is great news... and now up to the top!

  8. Puppet-- you really should be proud to be A UPian. Kudos to UP.

    Spoolartist---yeah, bring back the good old days. Bring back the glory. We can do it.

  9. Falcon---great to know that. So you were educated in another country. You should be proud of your school.

    Zara--yeah, maybe that is the reason why. BTW, I think I missed the name of your school. Hope you don't mind.

  10. Kris--a real joy for each and every PINOY.

  11. Its ok dear...

    BTW, the first song in my list is "HERE IN MY HOME" by MALAYSIAN ARTISTE FOR UNITY...

    I can tell you that the song is really awesome, in fact, I kept listening to it everyday~

    Jay Chou's songs are in the tracks as well. Maybe not from this album, but he has a good voice and really talented.

    I hope I can post about it later, but u can try to find those in YouTube.
