I can hardly believe how fast my blogging year went by. I was at iBlog6 last year, attending the annual event for the first time. Now I'm going for the second time - I know a quite a few more people now than I did last year, and so hopefully I won't feel as awkward, haha. :p But do say hello if you happen to recognize me. I promise to do the same...
I am looking forward to seeing some people I already know - Blogging couple EJ and Ginger Arboleda, my friend Roy de la Cruz and former schoolmate Jonel Uy will be presentors at iBlog, and Flow Galindez will be hosting - apart from them though, I really have no idea who else is coming. :p Are you going to iBlog7???
If you are, then I will see you there on Saturday! (I can only go on the 2nd day).
By the way, I will also be performing an intermission number with the UP Concert Chorus (UPCC) again this year. UPCC is the Official Choir of the University of the Philippines and we are celebrating the group's 50th Anniversary in 2012! It's going to be epic! ;)

The Press Release below was issued on March 4, 2011 by Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. in an effort to address questions raised about why prices are increasing based on global oil prices when they still have inventory of crude bought at a lower price.
To summarize the article below the answers are:
1. To ensure price transparency - it is the norm in open markets in other countries as well
2. In response to market competition (i.e. refiners vs importers)
In addition, crude is bought on a continuous basis, and so while the crude bought at a lower price 3 months ago is being sold at a higher price now, say a month from now when the oil prices go down, the crude bought at a higher price today will then be sold at a loss by the oil companies.
Anyway, onto the article. It explains it in more details. I encourage you to remove your bias for a second and try to read objectively and understand...

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2010 Philippine Bar Exam Results as a friend of mine took the exam last year. It was held on all four Sundays of September (September 5, 12, 19, and 26) in 2010 at the De La Salle University (DLSU) in Taft Avenue, Manila.
This was also the Bar Exam of the infamous bombing that injured several people including 2 students who both lost their legs. Raissa Laurel, one of the blast victims needed to have both her legs amputated.
Earlier today, Chief Justice Renato C. Corona held a special En Banc session for the “decoding” of Bar results - the directive to decode “is when the Court orders the Bar Confidant to open envelopes containing the names of the examinees in the presence of the Bar Chairman.”
Here is the complete list of the 2010 Philippine Bar Exam Results...

I've been missing in action for the past week and I'm sorry!
This will also be a short post as I only wanted to let you know why I haven't posted anything since March 4 - it's basically a classic case of Life overtaking Blogging. Hehe. I missed my weekly American Idol fix and my boot predictions - I would've picked Ashthon to go home anyway har har - and I missed posting my Self Indulgent Birthday Blog Post (like last year). :( Here's why...
