With this, his term starts, and the general populace are waiting for him to take action as the newly appointed 17th President of the Philippines.

During her time as Vice President, she started many programs to alleviate poverty and the damage of natural crises, such as the Angat Buhay program. Meanwhile, through the use of social media, Marcos organized a historical revisionism of sorts, doing interviews in his social media pages and attracting netizens to increase his cult following.

For all intensive purposes, although it is to be acknowledged that there were many candidates Ping Lacson. Isko Moreno, Manny Pacquiao and so on, there were actually two main leading and opposing individuals, Leni Robredo and the incumbent winner Bong Bong Marcos

The 4th Type

Growing up, I never tried to excel in my studies. I would say it came naturally to me, following the trope of “Filipino Female Firstborn” – the overachiever as they would put it. The final year before college, I encountered my first academicrelated dilemma. I would describe it as the lowest point of my life. At that moment, the realization hit me. I am lacking the 4th type.

Children should be taught to face failures sometimes and make them understand that it is perfectly fine to lose to improvise. Parents should teach children not to chase perfectionism. Let them be aware that success begins when they are willing to move out of their comfort zone and do what others think might be impossible for them. If they are unable to hold out against challenges in life, they may not be able to utilize their potential to its extent. It is known by many names - grit, fortitude, tenacity, and self-sufficiency.

But one thing is for certain.

The 4th type of intelligence teaches people how to swim and free dive in the deepest waters so nobody should ever drown in a puddle again.

Proposed and conceptualized by Dr Paul Stoltz, he described the 4th type of intelligence as Adversity Quotient (AQ), the ability to face adversity and resist setbacks using rational decisions. We are often misguided by the assumption that someone’s success is determined by their smartness. Though it is true that academic excellence is one way to measure someone’s intelligence, it takes more than that to go through a rough patch in life and come out of it with a sound mind.

Adversity Quotient can determine as far as who will give up in face of troubles and abandon their families against those who are resilient to shortcomings and will continue to strive forward in life. Similar to the other type of intelligence, it is advised for parents to help develop their children’s AQ at a young age. They should be taught about something I learned the hard way – to be adaptive to the ever-changing environment.

What’s in the WReality? hat’s in the Reality?

by: Noeme Anonuevo

For a student like me, the Internet has become a necessity, if not the most important thing According to the scholar blogs website, the Internet provides us with endless access to information, entertainment, and distractions at the tips of our fingers Also, the Internet is one example that can provide a supernatural stimulus The said website also mentioned that it can lead one to think that supernatural stimulus or an exaggerated version of reality is better than natural or reality based stimulus FEU Cavite is active in taking their students to come and participate in their organized events that focus on socializing and giving fun activities as well as experiencing university life. Some chose to have fun in a face to face set up, and some chose to stay at home and use devices to participate in the said event. As for my personal experience, being in online based classes gives so much comfort when it comes to socializing and attending events, but it doesn’t mean that I gain experience and perceive much information in my comfort zone. Until now, I am thinking What’s in the Reality?

fb com/Simbuhan7


In James Clear's book, Atomic Habits, he mentioned supernatural stimuli, which are an exaggerated version of reality Maybe you are wondering what it is I was about to get bored but decided to get saved by grabbing the mentioned book and deciding to read it It took me a few minutes to think about what a supernatural stimulus is We perceive through our five senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight And this topic prompted me to lean back in my chair and consider what I had missed inside my cramped quarters I look at my laptop for a few minutes I’ve been using this thing so much that it's become my partner in everything I can attend events and classes by looking at the screen I gain some friends, knowledge, and fun by using it So, what I am saying is that we students from FEU Cavite have had more than two years to perceive an artificial stimulus to study and learn, to attend classes and events, to socialize, to have fun, and so on It also affects our behavior to become more creative and innovative As our university offers limited face to face classes, I was one of the students who stayed in the online class set up and still use devices and the internet to attend classes During the session of one of our laboratory activities, I was thinking about what it would feel like to be in a classroom again What things could my eyes perceive if I was there in the lab? What does the coffee at our university taste like? What does the wind in my university feel like if it touches my skin and I hear those birds outside? And these kinds of feelings that I should feel inside the university have already been induced artificially by this medium sized device, which is my laptop We, as online students, perceive limited stimuli and experiences

sounds so empty. Going back to the better normal, students finally hear laughs and voices. These noises are way different but better from the unwanted construction noises and non stop loud music from the neighborhood.

Inside the café, there were finally students taking breaks from their classes Drinking their hot and cold coffees while talking with each other about stuff In online classes, students can still talk to their classmates, sharing their perspectives about how hard that one subject is for them or sharing how funny those videos for the required subject are while typing the word “HAHAHA” yet

From several events and activities on the campus, students became less anxious than before They start participating in live events, activities,

and even classes, just like in the pre pandemic era Just like how things usually move before Where student laughter can already hear in hallways again, and not in virtual laughing emojis on synchronous classes anymore And the classroom will not be empty again, filled with students not by air alone

During the first few weeks of face to face classes, students are still having second thoughts about going back to school. Fear of risking their health was still one of their reasons. Getting anxious from another adjustment withholds them to stay where they currently are


Students of FEU Cavite Higher Education Department finally have been given the chance to step foot on the campus on this School Year’s Second Semester. It is the first time for some, some are not, but it is no doubt that most of them waited for this moment for a long time.

The Taste of TLaughter he Taste of Laughter

simbuhan@feucavite edu ph fb com/Simbuhan8

It is odd to wear the worn out and tight school uniforms again, or even clothes one usually wears to school Quite strange to receive the daily allowance before stepping out of the house The sunlight against our bare skin is unusual, since we spent most of our time indoors Not to mention the protocols we have to follow from entering the school shuttle to entering the school, the classrooms until leaving the campus It feels new but familiar Different but the same

But fear doesn’t last forever


It was February 2022 when limited face to face classes were back again after staying in class virtually for 2 years. And even if years have gone by, it feels just like yesterday.

It is weird seeing our classmates and instructors to the flesh even if their cameras are off, hearing them talk and make sounds even if their microphones are muted. We are in the same classroom after all. We all have been in a classroom before, no doubt. But why does it feel foreign? Is it the masks? The 1 meter distance we have to maintain? The campus’ silence? The limited movements we are allowed to make? Maybe


Finally, they can identify the flavor of laughter, those voices longing for a company a long time ago. The taste of laughter is sometimes sweet and sometimes strange Strange but not weird, strange like these mixed flavors will make you want to have more

But what’s special is that even though our faces are shielded by our masks, we can see each other’s relief and happiness through our eyes We can feel the buzz of excitement without using words Probably it is the notion that we are already a step closer to the new normal though this is undeniably out of the ordinary we are used to It is the gratefulness that we finally get to cherish this opportunity to make up for what we have missed for the past two years

Fiambrera started with a Hip hop dance number from FEUC’s Dance company which is then followed by Folk Dances that were performed by the HRM Students Both dance numbers were impressive as they all showed their harmony and synchronization of their dance steps Aside from that, many students and professors were seen to be wearing national costumes

I am standing behind my mama while she’s digging in the soil, planting her favorite red flower. She said that she would grow numerous types of flowers and plants to make a wonderful paradise for everyone. Every night, I lit up my lantern to see fireflies wandering around my mama’s garden. I can hear crickets singing that magically puts me to sleep, and the aroma of the flowers wanders through my nose and calms my body. The beauty of my mama’s place shines through the moonlight that I can see in the night sky

As I was walking in the street of Imus, I notice an old man looking at the church. I couldn’t help but walk towards the entrance of Imus Cathedral. There is a wedding ceremony inside the church but here I am standing right in front of the Imus Cathedral having this curiosity of why an old man is crying with a smile on his face. “Do you know how old this church is?” I became speechless when an old man speaks I couldn’t answer him or even ask him, instead I just stood there waiting for him to speak “This church is 168 years old, the wedding of my family and even my own wedding happened in this church Now, seeing my daughter having her wedding in this church became more memorable to me. I just realized that as the church gets old, the people I know also get old. I just wished that the people I know were also stronger as the church is.” I couldn’t help but ask, “May I know why you are crying here outside?” His face is full of sincerity, “Because I remember my wedding, and I see the figure of my wife on my daughter. It makes me sad knowing my wife didn’t make it, but I am also happy that now I can finally be with her.” I smiled at him with tears in my eyes while watching him leave. The church that I was just passing by in Imus became memorable and beautiful to my eyes and heart.

Along the Promenade

Tattiana was ready to give up--- her career, her life, everything. Not until a nine year old girl reaches out to Tattiana and dares for her only to quit when the flowers and grasses in Promenade des Dasmarinas withered. “How is that supposed to happen if it were all artificial and will never wither?” Tattiana asked her, confused while staring at the flowers beside the man made waterfalls, surrounded by colorful lights, perfectly fitting from the darkness of the night. The little girl smiles and says, “Exactly my point!” and starts walking away from her. Tattiana began speaking loudly to ask who she is. The little girl stops for a while without turning towards her and says, “It

Photo Source: Google Images doesn’t matter who I am...” she paused for a second, “...but it does matter to the old version of you who always walks through this promenade to wish for whom you wanted to be who you are right now. So, why would you want to quit when there are so many reasons to keep going?”

They both like spending time after class at their favorite place; Café Agapita. It is the perfect hang out spot for them because they can study there and do their homework or just hang out with each other. They also love the food that is being served and the ambiance there, so they never get bored in that café.

Hang-out Spot

Nathalie and Irish have been friends since high school. Ever since they met each other, something in them just clicked and they knew right away that they would be friends forever. Nathalie is a straight A student and possibly the most organized person in their class. On the contrary, Irish is a free-spirited student, she cares about her grades but as she says most of the times; “come what may.” Although they are complete opposites, they are complemen

Until March of 2020 came, Nathalie and Irish stopped coming by Café Agapita due to the spread of a new virus. They also stopped hanging out with each other because of the new safety protocols. That was two years ago. Fortunately, the two best friends are now able to see each other again since the protocols are getting more lenient. They don’t meet up as much as they did before, but it is still better than not being able to, as long as they both stay careful and safe.

Kadadating ko lang sa Our Lady of Candelaria Church, kapansin-pansin na may karamihan ang tao sa loob ngunit hindi lahat ay naparito upang manalangin. May ilang kumukuha ng litrato sa altar ng simbahan dahil punong-puno ito ng mga santo at ang kakaibang pagkakagawa nito ng altar. Umupo ako sa may bakanteng pwesto, sa katabi ng matandang nakasuot ng belo. Ipipikit ko na sana ang mga mata ko upang magsimula sa pagdadasal nang biglang nagsalita ang babae, “Maganda ang araw ngayon, parang masarap maglakad-lakad.” Pagkasabi nya nito ay tumayo na sya at umalis. Hindi ko na lang binigyang pansin ang matanda at ako ay nagdasal na. Nang matapos ako ay lumabas na rin ako ng simbahan. Naglalakad na ako papunta sa may terminal ng dyip ng bigla kong naalala yung sinabi ng matanda. Totoo nga na maganda ang klima ngayon at minsan lang naman ako lumabas, hindi rin naman ako nagmamadaling maka-uwi kaya nagpasya akong maglakad na lamang pauwi. Pagkadating ko sa aming bahay, sinalubong ako ng aking nanay na nag-aalala, mayroon daw kasing dyip na naaksidente malapit sa amin. Nang marinig ko iyon, ay napatingin ako sa mga litratong nakalagay sa ding-ding. Tsaka ko lamang napagtanto na ang matandang babae sa simbahan ay kamukha ng aking lola na tatlong taon ng pumanaw. Imbis na matakot o kilabutan sa aking reyalisasyon, bahagya akong nalungkot dahil maaaring nagparamdam sya upang ipaalala ang nalalapit nyang kaarawan, matagal na din kasi nung huli naming syang binisita.

It looked like a home that caught the eye of every child and beautifully rested at night under the stars. I entered the house full of excitement to see the inside of the house for the first time. I was fascinated. It was too huge for me to live in this place A lot of stuff and collections are everywhere. The things on the wall fed my eyes. I excitedly run to the terrace where I can see the candy village. It is a playground where children may enjoy playing with their mates. It is an open area for them to play in. This is the playground that I dreamed of when I was younger.

Written by Noeme Anonuevo

I watch my steps as I walk to the staircase leading towards the huge front door. I am fascinated by the gigantic candy canes standing on either side of me. I looked up and saw the terrace. As I stayed in that position, I read the big letters that had assorted colors:

I immediately go outside when I remembered the well that built my dreams. I stare at it as I saw a young girl on her knees with her palms together while her eyes were closed. She desperately utters her wishes into the well. You can see on her face how big her dreams are. I read her lips saying, "I wanted a magical place where I could bring all my playmates, friends, mama and papa, and have the sweet treats that we like. Please give it to me for my birthday”. The young girl stood up and took something from her pocket. It consists of candy cane and spiral candies. She kissed them and threw them down the well.

She is happy to live in the house she wants to have. With just a simple glimpse, she’s standing right in front of the well all grown up and her gingerbread house is loved by many inspiring children and adults. She welcomes everyone, saying, "Everybody is welcome to visit the place that is made of dreams and imagination."

After a few minutes of staring at the place that I made, I go downstairs to see the huge teddy bear that I got from the special person in my life. It is sitting on the huge sofa and still has enough space for everyone to sit beside it. I took a few more steps before I got into the huge bear area I sit beside it and hug it for a long time. I whispered, "I miss my dad, Mr. Teddy Bear."

The Gingerbread House


Why are people suddenly talking to me? “Ah, wala po.”

I was utterly shocked at his words. “Pasensiya na po, ‘di ko po napansin na nagsasalita ako ng malakas.”

I chuckled a bit at the local then returned my gaze on the peaceful sight, but the lady in front of me looked at me as if I’m crazy. “’Te, may kasama ka ba?”

Hala. The chilly weather shivers I already had heightened, preventing myself from looking beside me.

Standing before me and other tourists and locals are two huge boulders perched on the riverbed side-by-side. Locals call it the mag-asawang bato, and I wonder why they were convinced that the weird natural sculpture is a couple. What if they are siblings? One more thing that makes me wonder is as to why the river is called “paliguan ng aso” when dogs can be barely found around the area. Let alone bathing in the running clear water. In fact, you can see more children. Why can’t it be called paliguan ng bata instead? “Neng, ang dami mo namang tanong,” said the local I didn’t realize was sitting beside too. “’Wag mong masamain, magandang may kuryosidad ka. Ang kaso, hindi ba pwedeng gan’yan na lang ang mga bagay-bagay at hindi kailangan ng pinanggalingan o kwento? ‘Di ba’t mas maganda ‘yung may misteryo pa rin?”

Talk about “misteryo”.

“E, sino ‘yung kausap mo? May signal ka?”

Our journeys are all unique, we have our own stories to write Our own ways to pave We can make our own routes to where we want and deserve to be It can be either mysterious, certain, or personalized We do not have to be contained on choosing what the society only tells us we can. Like Malibiclibic Falls and its unexpected hidden beauty under the green plains, we can construct our own direction to bring us somewhere customized, nature and perfectly fit for us. Somewhere we can shine the best.

Malibiclibic Falls’ streams of three rivers of different towns clashing onto one another represent the waves of challenges and opportunities can come from different directions and may cause us to overflow. To get lost and feel out of control, until it will grow us weary and push us to choose a course to take. The birth of this beauty was not because it chose either of those two, like we also can. The trail of running water continuously gushed on the riverbeds, as if it collects everything it needs to have enough resources to support the uncertainty. Until one day, the waters found its own way to pour out its excellence, naturally originating a magnificent outcome.

It seems that our lives all depend on two choices. Thinking about it is pressuring, because life is so broad, and we only get to choose from two directions. But do we?
