AFTER FOUR YEARS our uniforms already possess the dirty patina of time, some remnants of dried blood and smelly bodily fluids which I shall not enumerate here lest you vomit—oops, I just named one. Naturally we welcomed the opportunity to wear something decent other than our uniforms for the topic conference on placenta previa. The consultant was curious why we looked so good, Pinggoy breezed through the slides like a pro—so I take it that we did well that morning.
We had brunch after the conference and before the public health lecture. The restaurant's lighting was perfect for a photo shoot. Like ignorant, noisy high schoolers we took random shots of each other. Thankfully there weren't too many people around. I'm sharing some of the photos.
Some men from my block: Pinggoy Dañguilan, Jegar Catindig, Casti Castillo, myself, and Bryan de Gracia. My friends tell me I looked like an English schoolboy. Meanwhile, look for Crisostomo Ibarra!
With BJ, my roommate/blockmate. I punched him in the face, which explains the Band-Aid.
Forced intimacy between Glaiza de Guzman and BJ, thanks to Denise Dalmacion who likes to play choreographer.
The Most Wanted Clerks. Beware, future clerks and PGI's!
Relaunching the Kalbo, Kalbo, Masamang Tao series, which I began in November 2011. I'm with Pinggers and Casti.
Boxing match! Intense!
With Casti, my partner in crime these past rotations.
We went on to do a lecture on post-partum myths at Ward 16. We were surprised that many mothers still believe it's bad to take a bath after giving birth. The funniest myth we heard was: bawal kumain ng talong kasi mangingitim ang bata.
