CCSVDPC Weapons Mechanical Training

Field stripping is a training done yearly for the CAT cadets and officers of Saint Vincent de Paul College. This year, it was held at the Naval Reserve Command. I was able to join this year, not as a cadet, but as an alumna of the school. I helped teach a few cadets how to assemble and disassemble the M16.

The cadets had to learn the assembly and disassembly of the weapons assigned to them. They also had to clean and study the parts of the weapons. After learning the basics, they practiced numerous times, tried to beat their own record time and beat the other cadets in the assembly and disassembly of the weapons.

After helping teach the cadets, I also tried to practice with the M16. Many thanks to the younger alumni (former weapons team) who helped me recall the techniques for faster assembly and disassembly! There was not much pressure to do it really fast compared to the time when I was a cadet. But of course, it would be better if you can still finish faster than the cadets. I was also being careful because I did not want to get wounds and bruises but out of the eagerness to field strip again after a several years, I still got some small cuts on my fingers.

Aside from the M16 Armalite, we were also able to work with the M14 Rifle and the M1 Garand. After practicing in the morning and having a quick lunch, some alumni gathered to do a relay game. One person was assigned to disassemble four rifles and then the next was assigned to assemble all four, so on and so forth. I must say that it was a challenge because the alumni who were formerly part of the weapons team are really good at it. Some of them can disassemble a rifle in 7 seconds! For another relay, we used all three (M16, M14 and M1) and each person has to disassemble and assemble right away, without time to arrange the pieces that are all over the place, before the next person can move. There’s so much pressure but it was really fun! I must say that it’s also a great workout. It takes much effort and strength to be able to assemble and disassemble the weapons really fast. 🙂

Eight hours of that Saturday went really fast but I was glad I joined the training this year. I am really looking forward to joining again the next weapons training of the school.

Unang Yugto: The First AWIT Alumni Concert

When I was invited and asked to take photos of the AWIT Alumni Concert, I did not hesitate. Back when I was in elementary , I used to play classical music too. I played the recorder and the flute. Later on in high school, my brother and I joined the AWIT Youth Orchestra. It feels wonderful to be able to play the classical pieces and play in an orchestra but it requires a lot of practice and discipline.

It was my first time to shoot a classical concert and it was quite difficult to shoot because of the dim lights (I cannot use flash photography). The place was also full so there was little room to move to take photos. Plus I had to be extra quiet because the audience was listening intently to every note of the music.

This was really a challenge but I had a great time watching my friends perform and it was also great to listen to classical music again. I was inspired to listen to classical music again. Perhaps sometime soon, I will pick up my notes and pieces and play my flute again.

Gian & Sarah

My friends Gian and Sarah got married on the month of September last year. Indeed, time flies so fast! I cannot believe that August of the year 2011, we were organizing and already starting to finalize the details for their wedding. The bride and groom chose me to be their wedding planner and coordinator.

Planning a wedding, as some may say, is tedious. It is true but for me, planning a wedding is also fun. I have previously helped coordinate three weddings. It helped me a lot when we planned and organized the wedding of Gian and Sarah. Planning a wedding is not as hard when you know what the bride and groom wants for their wedding. The family choosing the suppliers and weekly discussions also helped a lot. Gowns, fitting, venue, decoration, food, lights, performers, speakers, guests, transportation, photographers, flow of the program and so much more! These are only some of the details that that one should take note of in a wedding. I spite of some of the stressful moments, the bride and groom remained cheerful. There is so much that you can learn from planning, organizing and coordinating an event.

Thank you to Gian and Sarah for this wonderful experience! It will soon be your first anniversary! 🙂

Mobile Phone Photography

Even if I am a photographer, it does not mean that I can bring my DSLR everywhere I go. Recently, I tried using my phone to take photos of what I see everyday. Here are some of the photos that I took this month of June. 🙂

The lady spelled my name right. 🙂
