My Jean graduates from college!

Ha ha! See the pictures? Those are my Jean’s official college graduation photos! My other daughter Tish and I enjoyed the graduation rites, tremendously!

And if you want to see how talented my Jean is, she is actually on youtube, playing on the keyboard the graduation song she composed for her batch. It is entitled Moment in Time!

By the way, in  UP, the candidates for graduation wear the sablay, or Ilo-ilo embroidered sashover a native dress. That’s the rather expensive balintawak my Jean and I splurged on! The sablay is worn on the right shoulder. On the University Graduation, when the UP chancellor has confirmed the degrees on the graduates, the sablay is shifted to the left shoulder without ever removing it from the body. I think UP is the only university which does not use the toga for graduation.

Graduation Rites was held April 16, 2011 at the UP Film Center.
