Two Years as Engineers


(Photo was taken two years ago during our oath taking at Grand Men Seng Hotel, Davao City. The person next to me is my KING, zaina’s father who is working overseas as pinoy Expat in Abu Dhabi)

I was not minding on it when a friend who happens to pass same board exam dated (Nov 18-19, 2006) buzz me at my yahoo messenger to congratulate ourselves *blushes*

Reminiscing the sleepless nights to memorize the formula and practice solving. Making little notes and sticking them on the walls where cartolina papers, manila paper full of formula to be memorized were posted like wallpapers.

Those times when me and my friends at the review center actually doing henna tattoo with our ballpens ink and doing nonsense at the back part of the room instead of listening to our mentor. We were a mess! Even our mentors, make statements like “first timers really don’t pay much attention and when they fail and enroll the second time that’s when they pay attention”. he he he. The reason why we were so noisy is that we have answered the pamphlets/booklets they have given to us ahead of time and that we only listen to things that we have not understood well. Me and my friends live in one place during the 6-months review phase so we do crazy things together.

When we got the result via internet 11pm three days after the last day of the exam, only one friend did not passed, he was always going home, Bukidnon and didn’t had enough time to review more. Me and King passed the exam in oneย  take and so with james lee, so blessed for our efforts paid off. Thank God!


Now the question is: HOW AM I DOING AS AN ENGINEER? A very though question that I have been asking myself lately, I have been in DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways) as programmer/estimator, In MinSSAD Consultants office as Site Coordinator but working like a Technical Assistant in the office because most of the time, I am at the office doing the Project Profile. And now I am absorbed in CPMO Office of MinSSAD (Mindanao Sustainable Settlement Area Development) Project as Quantity Surveyor. Sounds tough but not really sure as per career, if I have gone that far. Still making my way, and exploring the life of a Civil Engineer.ย  Hoping to see its depthness and usefulness in this world.
