Just sharing some photos from my recent weekend trip to Manila. No, my trip cannot be summarized in just these 3 paltry photos. I'm just a sad excuse for a "blogger" as I had forgotten my camera. :( Anyway, I attended a Chemical Engineering conference organized by my former org, UP KEM with some of my classmates from Ateneo (UGH I dont even have a pic with them!! How sad is that?).
Anyway, I arrived Friday night. I was supposed to meet Cheyser but my friends' flights were moved to 12:30am! (They were supposed to leave at 9pm, arrive at 11pm and then we could all ride together to QC) The MRT closes at 10pm so I opted to go to QC earlier instead. (Ya I know I could've ridden a cab but it's so expensive and I was being such a spendthrift since I was using my own money) Sad. I really was looking forward to meeting up with Cheys. :( BTW my friends arrived at 3:30am!
The whole of Saturday was the National Chemical Engineering Symposium (NaChES) held at the National Institute of Physics. More than 450 students came that they had to have another room for the walk-in applicants. Uh, how's that for #biggestnationalChEevent? The topic this year was about Catalysts. To be honest, I wasn't really looking forward to the topic since I knew very little about it and I thought it would be boring. However, my misconceptions were cleared as I found that I thoroughly enjoyed the topic. That afternoon, there was a series of parallel sessions and then a workshop followed. I picked Biocatalysts. For the workshop, I was with Vemar and our group was one of those in the top 3. Woot, woot! Then Saturday night, I had dinner with my 10B bitches at Flaming Wings. It's been our go-to place for dinners ever since ever. Oh yeah it rained HARD also Saturday night. I'm so not used to it. Good thing I was able to get a cab.
