Save Top of Your School!

Someone is trying to set my school on fire.

School Arsony being costly. In recent years there have been on average three arson attacks on schools every day.

Most of the culprits are teenagers - often high on drink or drugs - from problem families in deprived inner-city areas.

Teenagers eh? Here's the greatest solution to juvenile delinquency. [extra: kawaii! BR]

Even if you already tried to fix the source, it is true what he said: You can't have a top floor if you don't have a building.

We can always take the advice of the Koalas.

Or maybe a renovation of the school building's walls and water fountains. Let's make sure we get our own Mr. Benson: In 1912, Simon Benson, lumberman and civic leader, commissioned 20 drinking fountains with a $10,000 gift

If you can't find Mr. Benson, make sure you'll have a 20 minutes to spare during class and have a film viewing of Grief-o. (If you don't have that, excerpts of Waterworld will do). Also, you might want to take care of your firefighters.

Non-Building Post: Autobiography

Sorry for the now infrequent feed of your boring buildings around UP Diliman, which I have to disturb with *something* that might turn out to be annoying, but really, it's worth seven buildings with all the manual labour I had to go through to finish it.

Video embeded on this site:

Gomen for the broken link. And for mediocre quality. My film career is at its infancy. This is *also* my pseudo-editing debut.

UP Vanguard

The third building in the University to start with "V", I once thought that the V-Rooftop on my Form-5 meant Vinzon's Rooftop, resulting to a very embarassing incident that I wish not to recall. The Vanguard Rooftop is on the third level of the building, home to the now optional ROTC programme, the Judo/Martial Arts Sparring Room and the Dance Classes of Professor Mynette Aguilar (coz she finds the dance area in the main gym too noisy).

Church of the Risen Lord

Oi Peyups People! I'm back. Sort of. Consider it the return of the prodigal son. Only I'm a daughter. But if you really want genuine entertainment from A prodigal son, watch Pinoy Big Brother, Celebrity Edition.

My comeback brings topofyourschool on top of the Church of the Risen Lord, otherwise known as the UP Protestant Church. The structure itself is designed by Cesar Concio, the same guy responsible for Palma Hall and Melchor.

The top floor is the second floor, that opens to a huge landing which serves as a good venue for events. The signboard says "Happy Birthday Jesus."

Obviously, still in a hangover from that old holiday. Which reminds me, Belated Happy Valentine's Day. (Consider this a blasphemous gift, but it might bring you to a different floor)

Aside from the wide, spacey venue for events, there's the Gentlemen's Loo, The Ecumenical Ministry Foundation Incorporation Board Room, Christian Education and University Ministries Offices.
