When the US Embassy deny my visa last September 21, 2006, One of my first question to my
self is "What now" ? I have plans for that day, plans for work, plans for pleasure, plans
for study and plans for family. All gone. We have been waiting since September 1991 for
that day, all gone. In just minutes my plans vaporize up in the Air. It feels like the
whole world suddenly came down on my shoulder.
On that day September 21, 2006 i have been denied not only of my visa. But of my future
Its history now...
In my frustration, one thing i remembered thinking those days is to study. Not in college
but just a seminar like study, i want to work, but here in the Philippines one must have
papers diploma, credentials that kind of thing. I don't have college diploma, it's not on
my plan to study here in the Philippines. My plan is to study in the States.
I went on curriculum hunting, from antipolo, to manila university belt. Scouting a good
school to study with. Then on my hunt, i came across, SPI (skill-power institute)
located at Lores Country Plaza. So i went, and upon reviewing there curriculum decided
One subject have convince me to enroll at SPI. Am a freelance website developer.
Professionally i do website developing, so having a web page developing on my first
semester is what i like. Comparing to other school, they offer website development on
the 4th semester.
My study at SPI ease my frustration on my visa. Study is okay, until the school announces
that there's going to have an activity “acquaintance party 2007”. even on my teen days i
don't want to attend such party. I rather go to the library and read books, but a party ?
Me in a party ? A 42 years old fat guy dancing with the kids the age of my daughters
... but i have to go.
Then i came up of a plan, why not document my self going to the party, using a video cam !
I said to my self, why not document “CSP102” SPI scholars class of 2007. thats nice ...
So i went to the party. Holding a video cam, i went on taping the event.
