Ang galing mo.
That is the theme of the University of the Philippines' centennial celebration that kicks off today, January 8. I didn't like the slogan much. I thought the UP community could do better than flaunt its tradition of excellence. I'd say that should be quietly treated as a given. But oh well ... it's too late to suggest something more ... uhmmm ... classy.
I don't usually join parades especially one held in the middle of a warm afternoon. But I just couldn't pass this one up. My days at UP are numbered and I am bent to stock up as much memories as I can to last me through the rest of this lifetime.
Anyway, this isn't about me. It's about the parade that will begin a year round commemoration of the 100th year of the school that has cradled heroic types as well as infidels of sorts and those in between; successful people and those not so, given the infinite nuances of the word "success."
Whether or not you identify with UP, enjoy these images of the memorable parade.
