La Concordia Memories – #throwbackthursday

Everybody is making raves on looking back on memory lane with the #throwbackthursday hash tag on facebook and instagram and I thought it’s nice to look at your photographs and reminisce the memories associated with it.

I never dreamed of becoming a beauty queen since i lack many qualifications of being one  but when given a chance and a some persuasion from school administrators and friends, i thought it’s worth joining a friendly competition.

Concordia college

I studied at Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion de la Concordia or for short, Concordia College, a school run by the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul (sister school of Santa Isabel College,)  the same school where the sisters of our  Philippine national hero, Jose Rizal sisters and two loves also studied. ( Saturmina, Soledad and Olympia,  Segunda Katigbak and Leonor Rivera )

This is the same hall way where Jose Rizal used to meet Leonor Rivera and where I also met hubby 13 years ago.  This hall way has a lot of memories to share not just with me but with all the love lost in time.

Ms. Commerce 2001

Here are some pictures of that day!  I didn’t win the title but i grabbed the first runner up and Ms. Concordia’s Choice Award ( i didn’t know that i’m that popular for a very naive and silent lady at that time), so i didn’t come home empty handed and even fave way  for me to become the Senior Concordian’s News Editor and article contributor.












Down memory lane

My college is not as swift and easy,  as I needed to balance my school while working in the morning, after all I don’t have any one to support me at that time but i guess with lots of perseverance and encouragement from people who loves me, makes what I am today!
