Tiring but Worthwhile

I was able to conduct 1st day of lecture at QCPU last saturday for class and DBMS2 class. I had a lot of students and were expecting a class since they haven’t got into class since the start of classes.

I prepared the powerpoint slide and was able to deliver what was expected. I appreciate some students saying they learned a lot of things during that day.

It was tiring but worthwhile. I hope to share my knowledge to them as we continue this semester.



5 months to go

Ifinally passed my comprehensive exam. I still have 5 months to go to graudate. Im taking up Knowledge Management right now. Its quite interesting and new to me. I expect to learn something new in this subject.

Im still trying to manage the busy schedule I have in the office and school.

Im happy that I dont have think on reviewing for the exams again. I hope the next batch this february will have favorable results in the exam.

This is all for now…

Comprehensive Exam at Last

Last Sunday, August 10, 2008 I took my comprehensive exam at UP for my graduate studies. For me, it was the exam of my life. It started 8:15 and I finished at 1:30.

The exam was fine but I’m not saying it’s easy. Im not that confident with my answers until the results will be released. Im praying that I will pass the exam. Of course, I hope we will all pass the exam.

Fortunately, some questions were similar to what we have reviewed in our Study group. At least, I already have the strategy on how to answer the question.

The exam results will be out in a month and Im hoping to get a favorable result.

Will let you know if I pass. hehehe

PHP and MySQL Presentation

I just finished my final presentation in my PHP and MySQL training at UP ITTC. I started working on it last midnight and finished it just this morning. Although I had lack of sleep, I was satisfied with the outcome of the project.

The project is expected to be deployed for the Transcript of Records Section for them to monitor applications of transcript, COG and CAV. Hopefully, it will help the efficiency of the processing of applications.

I am still awaiting for the grades I got from 2nd Semester. I hope I can get a favorable average and take the comprehensive exams next sem.

Time to Go! Til next post!


After the long silence…

It’s been a while since I haven’t updated this blog. I have been busy this past few months after leaving UP and transferred to another Government Agency/GOCC.

Anyway, this might be my destiny. 🙂

Recently, I also had a training in ASP.Net and right now I am finishing my training at UP IT Training Center in PHP and MySQL. Comparing the two web application programming languages, they are both powerful, however, many sites are built commercially using PHP.

I can’t compare their performance since our project in the office is more on Visual Basic 6 which is more on desktop applications and the “classic ASP”.

Last March 12-13, 2008, I got the chance to attend a seminar on Integrated Management Systems (IMS) awareness. The lecture seems to enlightened me more. Although, we had taken this up in TQM Class at UP Technology Management Center, I had a better understanding on the corporate perspective.

I had a tough semester in UP TMC. It’s my first time to enroll 3 subjects which is equivalent to 9 units. For me, it’s suicide mode, trying to balance my family time, work and school. Just last night, I had the last hurdle in my Marketing subject. The final exam which lasted 3 hours was quite manageable. On March 31, we still have some papers to submit for my Technology Acquisition (TM 241) subject. By thursday of this week, I have to submit a paper on my Finance subject. It’s cramming time again. 😀

That will be all for now, I hope I can finish all my papers on or before end of the month.

See you next post!
