Parang Boracay mix… Akala mo matamis lang na inumin… Maya-maya… tatamaan ka na.
Benedict C. Balberia BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Bonet is rarely in the limelight but it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have any guts or the abilities. He is a silent worker who prefers to work in the background rather than exert effort in competing with other people for recognition. He is very dedicated in everything he does. Bonet may not be the best man for the job, but he will definitely give a lot of effort and passion to get the job done. Because of this attitude many people see him as a reliable person. A simple man with simple aspirations, his ultimate dream is to help a lot of people, especially his countrymen.
Raphaela Marise C. Barba BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
One first look at Ate Raphie, the pretty “ate” of ECE, makes you think she is a typical Maria Clara, a girl of quiet proportions and unfathomable decency. But as you spend days and days with her, you will slowly realize how wrong you are. With friends, she is one happy-go-lucky cowgirl who always seems to get things right. She gets to fool around like a kid, umm, actually, she is a kid at heart. She laughs like there’s no tomorrow, dances ‘till she’s dizzy and hugs everybody with all the Care Bear love. Yet, she still manages to get As and Bs and everything in between. A true ate, she is very concerned about her friends and colleagues. Whenever people are down, she is always present to listen and to comfort. And mind you, she is a serious workaholic when she wants to. That is, if she wants…
Kim Darby G. Bartolome BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
“Still waters run deep.” This is the perfect phrase for Kim. At first, he is seen as someone who is snobbish, very serious with life, always immersed in deep thought and very quiet. But, this is all just a façade. Who would have thought that this serious-looking person would be graced with innate artistic genius? He is the man when it comes to the arts. May it be using pencil and paper or designing software, he is the man to watch out for. He can bring ideas and concepts to life with just a stroke of his pen. This is why he is called The Bart of Art. Not only is he gifted in the arts, he also has wit to boot. In fact, he never seems to run out of corny jokes that would take the average person a few moments to comprehend. But, the most important thing to know about Kim is that he is the best friend one could ever wish for. Not only is he thoughtful, sweet and caring, he is someone that would be there for you no matter what. Kim is definitely like no other. He simply is the best.
James Jesus D. Bermas BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
James, better known, as Bermas, is a guy who can make you smile even during tough times with this great sense of humor. He’s very witty, kind, friendly, and intelligent. He’s also very knowledgeable and handy with computers. He’s a great friend to have who’ll be there for you in good times and bad. James is also willing to go out of his way to help others (he can even help you with your assignment.. hehehe), or when you just want to hang out and share your thoughts with someone. You’re sure to have some good times and laughs with this guy. Oh ya, did I mention that he’s very optimistic? With his charming personality and appealing looks, he’s surely someone you’ll never forget. James also has a great imagination, and his smile sparkles with the beauty of a million stars.
Kristel Anne Rose A. Biliran BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Kristel is one of the most prominent ECE students, thanks to her active involvement in various events. Her leadership skills, perseverance and determination rise to the occasion, especially during critical times. No one can ever forget the time when she single-handedly raised a hundred thousand pesos in one afternoon mostly through her vast network of friends. A well-beloved mentor, student, facilitator, leader and friend, Kristel is one of those persons who have the ability of making a room come alive. Her presence somehow induces others to lighten up and take a break. On times when she’s busy and seriously trying to finish a project, it’s inspiring to see her try to surpass herself. To those close to her, Kristel is also a great adviser and consultant on various matters. A conversation with her always leaves an imprint on one. To most, Kristel seems to be a carefree, happy-golucky girl who merely takes everything in stride. Once you get to know her more, however, you’ll find out just how rich her character really is.
Jose D. Dalino Jr. BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
There are many levels to the persona of Jr Dalino. As a student, Jr is a well-rounded individual. He works hard on his academics while nurturing his guitar skills as well as serving in his church. He is very critical about his work, especially when it comes to music. Although he takes music and his studies very seriously, there is a laid-back, funny, and even eccentric side to this lad because of his weird yet amusing antics. Jr’s eccentric side is also reflected in his music, showing off a fusion of different genres that he has incorporated in a series of technical yet melodious riffs. When it comes to improvisation, his licks never fail to surprise you. That’s also how he is with life. He is one those few intelligent yet practical people who have what they call “diskarte sa buhay”. Whether it’s dodging MMDA’s, cramming for 3 exams the next day, or balancing a gig, Jr knows how to make things work. No matter how bleak the situation, Jr can always find a creative solution.
Allan M. Espinosa BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Allan Espinosa is a superlative of sorts. Academicallyspeaking, he is the quintessential ECE student. He always finds the relationships of things like life from the day-today engineering lessons. Since Allan thinks that every discipline is connected, he likes to talk to people of different fields. He was mistaken for a grad student by some faculty when he was helping them in their computionally intensive projects. He helps them in using Ateneo’s supercomputers for their research work. But there is more to him than all of these technical stuff. He was also mistaken for a freshman during his senior year while playing cards with a group of students in a tambayan. Allan always takes opportunities like these to meet new friends specially in nerd conventions. Once, he lost in a mini-dating game in the socials night of a programming contest because he said that he loved math in one of the questions. In every angle you see Allan, his real passion always stands out: numbers.
Hazel Inessa G. Fernandez BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Matching her name that sounds like a killer martial arts move, (“Cha! Chic!”), her look also screams, “mess with me and die.” And once you get to know her, you’ll really know you shouldn’t. Conviction is an understatement for this person of great principles and resolute tenacity. Along with that conviction is a steadfast loyalty to friends whose lives she fills with laughter and energy. One of the seven roses amidst ECE 07’s mass of thorns, her cheerful smile and funny little anecdotes never cease to lighten up other people especially during times of difficulties. Words need not be said for her to realize the troubles going on inside one’s mind. Though she’s very busy with work, she always has time to listen to anyone’s problems and extends her help to those who need it. Eternally sugar-high, Chachic has the power to turn any boring situation to a stand-up comedy. Anyone can attest that a conversation with her can never die, and in much the same way, it is impossible to put out the fire of passion in her heart.
Liana Karla Joy D. Gador BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
You have to be amazed with Joy’s fighting spirit and determination. Joy is one of the underrated students in our batch. Even though there are times when she is not given much credit for her work, this doesn’t dampen down her spirit to excel. But don’t get the notion of her being thirsty for fame; Joy is doing this to show the capabilities of women. One of Joy’s goals is to show the world that women can excel in everything, even in a course, which is perceived by the society as male-dominated. Joy is a fighter and has a very strong personality. But don’t get intimidated by her for behind that blazing fighting spirit of hers is a heart that is soft and passionate especially when it comes to helping others improve their lives. Joy is thoughtful and caring especially to the people close to her. She is sensitive to other people’s needs and has a great desire to help other people. Joy is definitely a compassionate person and a fighter. So you better not under estimate her, or else she will show you just how valuable she can be.
Raymond N. Garcia BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
I am one of the very few Raymond’s in this world who have a nickname of Mondy. Actually, I don’t even know someone with the same nickname as mine. I am probably the most interesting person in this yearbook. Ehem. I would love to talk about myself, myself and myself but Aegis would just spare me this 15-liner write-up. How sad… There is not enough words to describe my valor and conquests in my college life, so much more my excellence overall. Well, enough of that. It is time to express my deepest “gratitude” to this school that has given me excruciating pain—from speechless oral reports, clueless laboratory experiments, and merciless final exams. Being an ECE student was never easy. Faura Hall really sucks the marrow out of your bones. Unless you are cunning enough, you would be collecting F’s and D’s just like… oh nevermind. And before I end this entry let me say this to all my fellow ECE batchmates: “You don’t have to be an engineer to be able to use your tools.”
Joseph Paolo U. Guanio BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Often times, people come into our lives and pass us by. Sometimes, there are those who come into our lives and leave us changed. And sometimes, when we’re lucky, there are those who come into our lives and stay with us forever. Paolo is one of those special people who come into our lives, stay with us for a lifetime, and change us forever. For this person, in his sincerity and good intentions, can never say “no” to anyone. It is amazing how he can run errands for the family, do volunteer work for the Pentecost Parish Music Ministry, organize activities for the parish community, spend time with the babies and girls in CRIBS, Redeemer’s Home and Laura Vicuña, serve as Tugon’s External Vice-President, and manage to stay in ECE all at the same time. Sometimes, I wonder where he draws his strength from. Sometimes I wonder if he ever gets tired. And it dawns on me that Paolo will never get tired of giving himself to others, for it is in the very act of giving where he draws his strength from.
Reynaldo C. Guerrero Jr. BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
New Webster’s Dictionary Rey (rei) 1 n. a specific member of the male Filipino race who is a math whiz, nerve racking philosopher and a pingpong aficionado at the same time 2. n. short for Reynaldo 3. n. a silent but very efficient operator 4. n. the epitome of perseverance and discipline 5. n. a smile holding so much truth 6. n. the perfect way of being imperfect 7. v. to give the best compliments to anyone who really deserves them 8. adj. serious and sensitive, always willing to lend a hand 9. v. to be strong when his strength is needed and weak when he needs to be 10. n. one of the guys who shared years of fun, mischief, stories, utopia, and of course, the fave game of cards in the lair called Cervini 11. n. being with someone sharing minutes of silence with no discomfort, but a warm sensation reminding you that he is a friend any time. This guy more than rocks. He’s the FORCE!
Norman Jesus F. Hernandez BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
“Finally!”—a word he and all those who know Norman can utter with great pride and exhaustion. At last, this person graduates and prepares for life after the Ateneo. No more will this silent big man be walking through college grounds to share everyone a smile. Gone will be the days when anyone could just approach him for absolutely anything they want to talk about. He takes with him his witty punch lines that make others laugh, and his fun-loving, happy-golucky character that somehow helped him to get through college life (which still baffles his friends the same way it does to him on how this is actually possible). He grew in the Ateneo, as much as the Ateneo had grown into him, both literally and metaphorically, gaining weight with each passing semester, while experiencing and exhibiting love to everyone around. As how he always says it, “it’s not fat that you see… it’s all heart.”
Regina Marie Q. Javellana BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Riches do not exhilarate us so much with their possession as they torment us with their loss. – Epicurus
Real M. Mame BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Bits and pieces of REALity, molded together to form a masterpiece… Resilient is the best word to describe Real. He is always up to the challenge. Moreover, he is gifted with a very investigative and creative mind. You’d surely want him to be your groupmate in the lab or in the thesis perhaps. But above all, he is a winner. One can barely count the medals he got from his previous contests in math, science, chess, and journalistic writing. He enjoys math more than any other subject; yet he also fell in love with Philosophy in his Ateneo days. Playing basketball, listening to music, reading novels, and traveling are his favorite pastimes. Meanwhile, his dislikes include 7:30am classes, typical Pinoy movies and telenovelas, and cramming. Real is a man of few words yet he forges a deep and lasting imprint on the hearts of the people close to him. His vocabulary never runs short of the words “Thank you” and “Sorry” though. A person with a sound mind, an active body, and a sincere heart—that’s Real.
Jonas Krisco C. Mapile BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Being with Jonas means never having a dull moment. Topics of conversation would surely be endless--whether it’s about serious intellectual matter or a pure comical hoax, this boy amazes everyone by his wide array of stories and ideas that he readily shares. He’s endowed with such an energetic disposition and is always up for anything. Just tell him when and where and he’ll be there. But behind that childlike antic of his is a diligent and persevering individual. He never fails to impress everyone with his determination and love of what he does. His sheer optimism shows his unyielding strength of character towards life. Full of kindness, patience and understanding, he shares his warmth of character to every person he knows. (Jacq) With his contagious smile and trademark laugh, Jonas has the ability to make people feel loved and hopeful. Through his affable personality and his kind and generous ways of giving his time, effort and love, he reassures others of friendship that would truly last a lifetime. (Lauren)
Moses Benedict C. Olores BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
To whoever wants to befriend Moses: 1. Give him your best. He will always find time for you and be sensitive to your needs. He will do his best for you, and so should you. 2. Show him respect. He will always try not to find fault in you but rather, see the good in you. He will respect your decisions, and so should you. 3. Trust in him. He will never let you down. He will always guide you and shelter you from troubles and pain. 4. Be proud of him. His brightness & wit is definitely worth recognizing 5. Take care of him. He tends to be emotional or worry too much at times. Never let his problems and failures chip away his spirit. 6. Cherish/treasure him. He’s one of the sweetest and most affectionate men alive! (My life will never be the same without him). 7. Love him. He deserves to be loved. —MG
Luigi T. Onglao BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Faces. tireless Beadle + since time-immemorial Batch rep + caring Officer + obedient Member + conscientious Student + generous Friend + unfailing Loverboy = Luigi Onglao. Groups. Because of his varied interests, boundless energy, and detest for idle time, Luigi joined numerous organizations in Ateneo. Through these, he learned, laughed, perspired, and persevered –to name a few verbs. In short, extracurricular activities greatly contributed to his growth and formation. Models. Luigi will forever be indebted to the countless role models he encountered and came in contact with in his stay in Ateneo. Their lessons and mistakes serve as an inspiration and guidance for his future endeavors. Places. Luigi will forever be traumatized by McDonald’s. Touring different parts of the Philippines and of the world will remain one of Luigi’s favorite pastimes. Events. College marked a number of first’s in Luigi’s life. Dreams. Only time will tell whether Luigi’s dreams will turn into nightmares.

Mary Grace S. Reyes BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
To Grace the singer: I never imagined that rock and alternative could sound so smooth when sang with cool R&B vocals. Thank you for the midnight lullabies. To Grace the achiever: Stop for a while, and with an open mind, look back and see everything you have accomplished. Look through our eyes and for once, stand in awe at the beauty you see in the mirror. To Grace the pessimist, fearful escape artist and seemingly unaffected: Don’t be afraid or resort to hiding. Life is wounding but you will overcome. Your child’s faith can heal all hurts and calm all fears. To Grace the ate: Your presence, understanding and words in times of solitude, confusion and distress are priceless and forever treasured. To Grace bunso: Your hands taught me to trust and showed me how to care. Your silence taught me to listen. Your tears taught me to love. To Grace, my dear friend: Fourteen lines is not enough for someone like you. Thank you.
Dexter C. Santos BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Dex is one of the few genuinely dedicated people I know. Though his exterior might show a carefree and laid back person, deep inside he is a person of deep conviction, compassion and kindness—qualities that shine through— especially to the people who know him best. He may be silent most of the time but every word that comes from him is filled with truth and sincerity. Even with ECE’s hectic schedule, he still has that extra hour to go out with friends and pull jokes when you least expect it. His positive outlook in life gives a lot of hope and inspiration to his companions. A loving son and brother to his family, a devoted kuya to the kids in Tugon, and a caring and thoughtful friend to many. Dex is one true gentleman—always takes good care of his loved ones and puts their welfare always before his own. As a friend, he is someone worthy of trust and respect. As a person, he shows how it is to be human.
Marvin T. See BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Looks and attitude in class can really be deceiving. You may not notice him. You may even ignore him, that’s how he always is. He never shows off, he never even thought of bragging something and letting all the people know how good he is. That’s Marvin all right, all these things he never shows to people he never know. Once you know him, you will surely be shocked on how these things aren’t true after all. He’s all that, but he knows his limitations, he knows when he’s already exaggerating, and he knows what he can and can’t do. One can’t really describe this person, because he’s so unpredictable. He also rants a lot about anything from teachers to government officials, from snacks to restaurants and more. But as one listens to his rants you will see how this person thinks. And mind you he thinks a lot, although it doesn’t show.
Armando James A. Simbulan BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
two decades four communities one path a cloistered programme an intellectual facade a commercial enterprise spews forth disillusion nurtures stagnation an ineffectual machinery almost done on to something worse
Ron Jowell T. Solis BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Heads turn as Ronjo enters a room, wearing his biggest smile but arriving way after the bell in a most dramatic fashion. His array of unheard-of excuses never fails to brighten up any class and infuse everyone with good humor. Ronjo’s a great sport when people tease him on his slip-ups in class and mishaps in life (like love), but he sure can defend himself and others whenever the need arises. Though busily involved in YFC, computer gaming, and certain Ateneo projects, he still can still manage a heavy academic load and even still have time for himself and his friends. He’s blessed with the gift of the arts and gab, which earns him A’s in oral exams and emceeing jobs in events and parties. Yet, he’s also a great listener and counselor to those who approach him for advice. Ronjo is one of the many who wants to affirm that grades alone aren’t enough in one’s student life. He’s a person to watch out for in the future for he definitely has what it takes to fulfill his dreams: Skills, Family, Friends, himself, and God.
Danniel D. Sunga BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Butch was always the boy with a big, goofy smile on his face whenever jokes, no matter how corny, were said or whenever anyone said anything remotely indecent. His trademarks include his denim shorts and sneakers get-up and his stories limited to a few verbs followed by “gets?” and “basta, yun”. He can be so lost sometimes that it would not be unusual to see him coming back to the tambayan 10 minutes after leaving to come back for his cell phone or wallet. Contrary to his being arguably one of the shallowest people on earth, he thinks about and has deep convictions on some topics; he even has his own philosophies that he calls Butchisms (nothing Levinaic, of course, but it helps him get by). He tries really hard to be a good student and officer in Ut… Tugon, where he has been a member since first year. Always a great friend; stubborn but insightful, with rigid values and a one-track mind, though sometimes he doesn’t know the things he gets into. We still have a long way to go, dude. Keep the faith.
Ma. Cristina Claire S. Tiamzon BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
“Damn!” “She’s pretty! She’s brainy!” Responsible. Serious. Dependable. “She’s really a nice person, very approachable.” =) “You complete me!” (Speechless) “Wow!” A genuine leader. “Short, sweet and simple!” =) “Cry baby, spoiled brat, prima donna!” “My inspiration. The only person who gives meaning to my life.” A very beautiful flower among the very thorny bush. “You. The love of my life.” -Comments of different people regarding Claire “I’m really all that?” – Claire’s comment after reading this.
Gimel M. Tomines BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Gimel, at first sight, will just look like an ordinary guy or boy in front of you. But upon knowing him, you’ll see the uniqueness that is his being (even his name is unique). He may just be about 2 inches above 5 foot high but knowing him will make you realize something big about him. He could draw his imaginations directly to a piece of paper, express his mood through playing drums in solo or as a band member or even express his ideas in another language like, say, nihongo. A sad day? Gim, will surely comfort you with his right-timed jokes. Feeling nationalistic? Look at him. Heck, he even looks like Jose Rizal. With all these, one could conclude that he is a true Atenean, who promotes dynamism in life; trying to experience everything to improve oneself and influence others to the same. With all these, Gim could prove to you that big things come in small packages, presenting you his charisma, talents, cheerfulness and dynamic life. So, look out world, here comes Gim.

Mark Davidson N. Wong BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
All people want to achieve something, whether it may be big achievement or a small thing that will only make a few happy, himself included. Due to this, many of us sacrifice other things. For example, we sometimes keep on studying and sleep for only a short time just to get good grades. On the contrary, we are in fact hurting and abusing our own body. If we can balance things between maximizing achievement and minimizing sacrifices, then that is the right way to live. All these years, Mark always tries things out to learn and find this kind of balance. He is someone who is always found inside the electronics laboratory--doing projects, studying major subjects especially about circuits, biasing electronic devices, doing online research, and playing online text-based games, and most importantly helping other students accomplish their laboratory work. He believes the kind of balancing mentioned above is similar to his actions in school—and not just about studying.
Jodison Miguel G. Yacaba BS Electronics and Communications Engineering
Sino ba si Jodison Miguel Yacaba? Kung titignan mo ang taong ito, maaanigan mo ang isang simple, ordinaryo at marahil walang-kuwentang tao. Ngunit huwag magpalinlang sa anyo ni Jong. Si Jong ay bukod-tangi at walang-katulad. Pangalan palang, pambihira na! Sadyang mahirap makilala si Jong sapagkat napakatahimik niya sa umpisa. Ito’y dahil nais niya lang makilala muna ang iba bago ipakilala ang sarili niya. Kung musika naman ang paguusapan, hindi matatawaran ang husay niya sa pagtugtog ng bass. Mr. Suwabass nga ang bansag sa kanya dahil sa kabila ng bilis at tindi ng mga nota ay mahinahon pa rin ang kanyang pagtugtog. Pagdating naman sa pampalakasan, hindi siya magpapahuli sa dahilang taglay niya ang tulin at liksi sa paglalaro ng basketbol. Mahirap man paniwalaan, ngunit mahilig din siya sa pag-aaral. Sa katunayan, mayroon siyang ibang klaseng talino na sandata niya laban sa mga nakasisindak na pagsusulit. Ay… oo nga pala, madalas, mahilig mangarap ‘tong si Jong.
