Yesterday, there was this Career Caravan at UIC Bajada. We thought it was some kind of a seminar or something but when we arrived hosts from "Kuyaw" a local variety show here in Davao were there and it really did look like it was a variety show and not some seminar.

It turned out that those hosts are supposed to entertain the audience while waiting for "Tito Boboy" to arrive. Honestly, I don't know who "Tito Boboy" (Augusto Boboy Syjuco) was until I saw the mini book they were giving away to the people who were there. It was my first time to hear about him. I even thought it was "Buboy" from the APO Hiking Society. Hehe.

The book given away was "Salabat for the Filipino Soul" which is like "Chicken Soup for the Soul" right? But, the content is different since some of them has jokes before moving forward to a much serious story. (Actually, I did not read everything just yet. Just browsed some of them and laughed at the korny jokes inside.)

Deflate - the plates, Defrag - the frog, Devastation - the bus station.. those kind of jokes.

Oh and yeah the funny REAL NAME of SHOPS.. like

  • Bote Nga Sa Yo (Used Bottle Shop)
  • Candies be Love? (Candy Shop)
  • Common Cents Store (Sari-Sari Store)
  • CrispyPer Minute (Crispy Pata Eatery)
  • Curl up and Dye (Beauty Salon)
  • Dear Hunter (Mail Order Brides)
  • Goldirocks (Gravel and Sand Shop)
  • Juice Co. (Fruit Juice Stand)
  • Mane Attraction (Beauty parlor)
  • Mat & Jeep (Jeep Accessories Shop)
  • Meating Place (Meat Shop)
  • Meatropolis (Meat Shop)
  • Nacho Fast (Nachos to go)
  • Passers Buy (Convenience Store)
  • Saudia Hairlines (Beauty Salon)
  • Scissors Palace (Barber shop which would sound like Caesar's Palace)
  • Susan's Roses (Flower Shop)
  • The Way We Wear (Boutique)
  • Your Best Vet (Veterinary Clinic)
Which reminds me of a certain Barber Shop here in Davao named "Harry Cutter". Where else can you see these names but here in the Philippines. LOL

Oh well, Tito Boboy arrived like 3 pm and he arrived like a politician campaigning. Shaking hands, Beso Beso here and there. You can't help but think he might go and ran for office... or maybe promote someone's party which I would guess would be Pres. GMA's party. Oh well, whatever... we did not finish it since it's already 4pm and some of us still have the thesis defense the next day. We left early.

It's the thesis defense of my classmates (June, Avy, Renel, Giovanne, Pearl, Red, Bordz, Jhunnel, Cedrick, Franco and the rest of the gang). Be blessed guys!! YOU CAN DO IT. :)
