How to Survive College Entrance Tests in the Philippines (ACET + DCAT)

P.S. I wrote this introduction until the ACET portion a few days after the ACET 🙂

College education is one of the best means to a successful career in life. Here in the Philippines, college entrance tests are a big deal, that the exams of prestigious universities even get trending topics on Twitter. I was able to have the opportunity to take up two entrance tests for the school year 2015-2016, namely the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) and the De La Salle University College Entrance Test (DLSUCET). I decided to share with you a very detailed run-through on how each test went for me and some tips that I have used during the test! (Remember, this is how my test went, and the universities can change the content of the test if they want to.)

Afternoon Tea Party

Macarons, Scones, and Club Sandwich

A few weeks ago, me, my parents, my aunt, and my cousin went shopping at EDSA Shangri-La Mall to buy stuff for our upcoming respective trips: my aunt and cousin for Japan and us for the US (I am waiting at the boarding gate right now while writing this!). After a ton of walking and looking around for stuff, we got super tired and hungry so we decided to eat. I suggestef eating at TWG Tea Parlor since I’ve been obsessed with tea lately and I wanted to try the restaurant’s dishes.

Weekend With the Fam

Eastwood, Quezon City, Philippines

 

Hey guys!! I know I haven’t updated in like, forever, but I was so busy that I just had to let school finish before I come back to the blog. After all, it was my Senior year, and I wanted to make the best out of it. So yay I finally graduated! I will be attending college in the fall, so now I have a ton of time to update (hopefully, because I might be out most of the time but I’ll really really try my best). So this post was supposed to be made for Chinese New Year, but I’m going to continue writing it anyway. (In the hopes that I could still recall what we did despite the months that already passed haha). So during the special occasion, we tried to be spontaneous and went to Eastwood for dinner.

Sundate with Dad

About a month ago, my mom went to the northern part of Metro Manila, sprcifically Quezon City, to attend a Christmas reunion with her friends. While she was having fun there, my dad and I decided to go around the shopping centers there, and as well as try the city’s iconic food hubs. Being from the South, it was sort of a new adventure for me and my dad.

Happy New Year

Celebrating the coming of the new year was a blast for me and my family! Despite me starting 2016 sick with colds and literally no voice at all (which I shall explain in this blog post how it happened), I still managed to have a fun New Year celebration.

Releasing My Inner Katniss Everdeen

20150719_152544

A few months ago, my cousins and I tried out a new hobby: Archery! We are huge fans of Katniss Everdeen, Hawkeye and Arrow so we decided to channel these fictional characters and tried to shoot some targets! There was a newly opened archery place here in BF Homes, Parañaque (PH) called Kodanda. It’s located along Aguirre Avenue and I think they also have a branch in Makati. The rates for an hour of archery sessions amount to Php585. This includes the equipment needed to shoot and you get to keep your target paper too!

Hey guys! I know that I haven’t posted anything for the past four months and I’m really sorry! I was so busy because I had a lot of school works. Plus, I’m also the editor-in-chief of our school paper so I have to manage all the articles of our magazine and stuff. Also, our finals are coming up and I’m actually in the middle of studying right now. I’m just taking a quick break and decided to let you know that I’m still here and about to post really soon, I promise. Expect me to be fully active and posting more about my life on October 23, the start of our semestral break! To keep you excited, these are the list of posts you have yet to see:

It was Mother’s Day last Sunday and we didn’t only celebrate it once, not twice but three times! We had a pre-mother’s day dinner, a mother’s day breakfast buffet and a post-mother’s day lunch. Sure enough, these celebrations made my mom feel truly special.

15th Birthday Cake

So last Friday I turned a year older. I have finished another chapter in my life and I’m now 15. It was a typical day in school, well my classmates, teachers and friends greeted me of course. But other than that it was a normal day, or so I thought. When I came to class, they all greeted me and one of my classmates handed me a Hershey’s Kisses Rose. I thought that the rose was her present for me so I gladly accepted it. Then my class adviser handed me another rose of the same kind and it weirded me out.

A Very Special Day for Mom

Mother’s Day is the time of the year where we try creative ways to make our moms feel special. It sort of becomes an obligation, but it shouldn’t. That special something should be a present that she’ll treasure forever. I remember the time when I was about 3 years old and I learned about Mother’s Day then. I always asked my mom to buy beads for me then I would make a bracelet for her though it was either too big or too small for her anyways.

Pre-Mother’s Day Date with Mom
