MM-S2E02 – Ayaw Ko Pumasok

Prep ako noon. Hindi ko rin alam kung anong klaseng katamaran ang nakuha kong sakit pero ayoko talaga pumasok sa school. Siguro, ayaw ko lang talaga maligo bago pumasok.

Tanghali na. Mga 10am ata ang klase ko sa Don Bosco Sta.Mesa. Kahit na ALL GIRLS ang school na yun, FYI, co-ed siya hanggang Grade 4. Prep pa lang ako kaya kahit lalaki ako, may karapatan ako pumasok  pumasok sa ALL GIRLS school.

Ewan, malamang may makitid na utak na magko-comment sa baba na may kabaklaan ako.

Anyway, yun na nga. Pinipilit na ako maligo para makakain na at makapasok na sa school. Ang kaso, andami kong dahilan.

Eto lang ang naaalala ko na naging conversation dun sa yaya ko;

http://hillaryaugustine.com/archives.php Ako: Bakit ba kailangan pumasok?
how to get gabapentin online Yaya: Para matuto! (sabay hila sa akin pababa ng hagdan)
Ako: Bakit kailangan matuto?  (hindi naman masakit pero naiiyak na ako, ayoko talaga ng pinipilit ako)
Yaya: Para marunong ka! (Tumaas na ang boses ni ate)
Ako: Bakit kailangan marunong? (Tumutulo na ang uhog at ang luha)
Yaya: Para paglaki mo, may trabaho ka! (Huminahon ng kaunti dahil medyo sumunod na ako papunta sa banyo.)
Ako: Bakit kailangan magka-trabaho? (Huminto ako sa paglalakad)
Yaya: Para may pera! (Nakukulitan na)
Ako: Bakit kailangan ng pera? (Nilakasan ko ang boses ko)
Yaya: PARA MABUHAY! (sumigaw na siya)

Memory Miyerkules ang tawag sa aking proyekto para ibahagi ang kwento ng buhay ko na may kinalaman sa sitwasyon ko ngayon. Bukod sa pagbibigay ng maiksing intro para sa mga susunod na blogpost, layunin din nito na maibahagi ang aking talambuhay.

Where Great Musicians Are Born



A Message from Our Founder

As an institution which strongly believes in holistic learning, Academy Of Rock (AOR) provides a conducive environment for students to build and develop their character, inspire creativity and forge lasting relationships through the process of learning.

In the 5 years that we have been in operation, AOR’s successes and achievements have exceeded all expectations. In 2011, we were awarded the Promising SME 500 2012 from Small Medium Business Association (SMBA), Singapore. We distinguish ourselves from many other music institutions by ensuring that our teachers are internationally certified to conduct music lessons. It is part of AOR’s culture to expose students to a diverse range of musical experiences as such our students are given opportunities to perform at world-class art venues locally as well as abroad.

It was a dream  come true when we launched our very own retail department with the AOR MUSIC STORE which will market our very own AOR range of instruments. These range of instruments have been carefully selected to cater to the beginners and their quality in construction and finish will prove to be the instrument of choice for any new music prodigy.

Experience the joy of playing the music of today as well as strumming to the beats of the past, with a structured learning system that is systematic yet tailored to the individual. Be pampered with the choice to pursue your academic aspirations with the leading Rock Music Examination board in the world – Rockschool UK. And get inspired to showcase your talents on the stage or screen.

In 2012, we were presented with an opportunity to stretch our arms beyond our shores. AOR had the system, the strength and the network of support to share our expertise with the land of musical talents – the Philippines. We hereby proudly present to you, Academy Of Rock Phils, Inc, the latest addition to the AOR family.

Meet the “World’s Youngest Distinction Holder for Diploma in Music Performance from Rockschool UK”!


THERON obtained his Diploma in 2010 and exceeded that achievement the following year with his Licentiate in Music Performance from Rockschool UK. The seasoned performer has shared the stage with many well-known drum stars and looks forward to further his passion Bass guitar where he has achieved his Grade 8.


The AOR Band is the premier student band from Academy Of Rock comprising of talented youths hand-picked from the music school. They started out in 2009 performing for a charity show when the performance bug hit them and they have taken their talents to the stage at world-class arts venues such as The Esplanade and even overseas to Hong Kong Disneyland. For this chapter of their constantly evolving line-up, we have five young souls who are passionate about music as much as getting up on stage and rocking it out.

The AOR event and production team has successfully organized bi-yearly full-scale concerts for our students since 2007. We have seen guest artists as well as students from schools as far as Canada share the stage with our students. This has lead to invitations for our students to perform in Hong Kong Disneyland as well as Singapore’s premier arts venue, The Esplanade.



Rockschool has had the pleasure of working with Academy of Rock for the past three years. The teachers have demonstrated a complete commitment to their profession by taking our teaching diplomas and the quality of teaching is shown by the success in the examinations the students take. Academy of Rock has a professional and exciting approach to contemporary music that is well partnered by Rockschools innovative and unique qualifications. I look forward to working ever more closely with Academy of Rock. –J.Ward © 2011

AOR has been a wonderfully encouraging place for my 3 daughters to fully realise their passion and potential for their musical talents. The out-of-classroom exposure through public performances clearly sets AOR apart as pupils get to really nurture their confidence to showcase their talent. The enjoyable pace is also coupled with a clear aim to prepare their students for formal recognition of their emerging talent, which puts us parents at ease considering the considerable investment. Most importantly, my kids truly enjoy their lessons!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Academy Of Rock. All the staff are friendly and helpful and you are made to feel welcome the instant you walk in. It seems to me that if you’d like to learn music in a professional, friendly environment, then this is the place to go. I can verify that the teachers are of a high, musical standard, having worked alongside them myself and it was an absolute pleasure to meet such talented young musicians during my time in Singapore.

AOR is a really good place for musical talents to grow. I have experienced this growth tremendously, and I really think AOR has strongly established itself as one of the best music schools in Singapore!

AOR is my family! It is one of the few places I really feel comfortable because it is where I go to do what I love – making music! It was through the concerts where I found many friends taught by other teachers, and friends whom I would not have even met if not for the concert, since we all come for classes at different times. AOR Concerts are really awesome! I love AOR!
