#TheSW30 Day 13: Describe how you met the last person you texted and talk about your friendship/relationship


Hi! I am on day 13 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Describe how you met the last person you texted and talk about your friendship/relationship.

The last person that I texted is Iya. She is a daughter, a friend, a neonatal intensive care unit nurse as well, an enthusiast, a courageous and a spontaneous person, Iya, born on December 24, 1989. I met her when I applied as a staff nurse in Manila Med last June 2017. I was hired at Manila Med as a General Nursing Unit Staff Nurse last June 21, 2017 up to August 2017. We both belong to Athena batch 22 training of the hospital together with Mer, Lyza, Claud, Jeff, Carmi, April and Nica. Iya and I did not last long in Manila Med, same with Lyza, Mer, Jeff and April. They took an absence with out leave but I resigned.

Last 2017, we were subdivided into three areas during the first two months of duty. Nica and I were assigned to 7th extension. On the other hand, Iya, Mer and Carmi were assigned at 7th main, while Jeff and Lyza were assigned at 8th main; Then, April and Claud was assigned at 9th Extension, Claud later on became a charge nurse at 9th extension, where I was reassigned after two months of being in the 7th extension after facing an issue at work of being sleepy and unable to completely follow through orders and have had a misunderstanding with a coworker.

Iya and Mer transferred to Pasig Doctors Hospital after leaving Manila Med. However, I went home to Calapan and applied at Children’s Medical Hospital and worked for a week only as a pediatric nurse last September of 2017, which then was the time when I was waiting to be accepted at Philippine General Hospital (PGH) as a nurse. Iya told me to work with them at Pasig Doctors Hospital last year. However, I refused because I was waiting for PGH. After some time, I was accepted at PGH as a neonatal intensive care unit nurse and worked at the institution for only three months because I had an issue again at work. I was advised by my chief nurse to take a break for a while and present a medical certificate that I am fit to work. Until now, I have not given the medical certificate yet, because my doctor told me to just transfer to another hospital.

I reunited again with Iya after I left PGH and during the time that I started my review for IELTS. She will be taking up IELTS as well with Mer this July 2018. I am planning to take the IELTS too with them. I have been reviewing with Iya and she is a nice friend.

One day, Iya asked me to review with her at Coffee Bean, Robinson’s Magnolia 1PM. So, one special Sunday, it was Mother’s day dated 13 of May. I greeted my mom and prepared to go to a Sunday service, wore a blue dress and a J-Hope Socks with my special hiking pink Clort shoes which I used when I went to Mount Ulap, together with my pink back pack. So, on that day I went to Coffee bean after the Sunday service at Victory U-belt. I walked from church to Legarda station, near San Beda College Mendiola, the school where I attended Medicine last 2014. I rode the LRT and stopped at Gilmore station, which is a few steps away from Robinson’s Magnolia.

When I arrived at the place, I opened the door and I was startled to see an old friend who blocked me in facebook, wearing a white shirt and an eyeglasses. He did not change.. he is still good looking. haha. But I turned around immediately and went to the door. When I was about to hold the glass door, I heard him call my name “Jaea”, but I did not look back, because I might be wrong.. (guni guni ko lang siguro) and it is embarassing to look back. What would I tell him? I don’t know what to say so, I walked away. And so, I left coffee bean and went instead to the comfort room, I processed my thoughts because I was still in a state of shock. However, I remembered Iya.. that we are supposed to have our review at the said place. I conquered my fear and went back. I stayed outside the coffee bean while waiting for Iya. I sat down, turned on my portable mini black fan and read few pages from my academic book about grammar. Then, thank heavens, Iya came. I told her about the guy in a white shirt sitting on a table facing the glass wall of coffee bean. Iya and I went inside and chose the table on the right most part at the back part, beside the mirror facing the back of the guy in white shirt, the most distant table from where the guy was sitting. We took our ordered beverages and started reviewing for IELTS.

After some time, Iya told me that the guy changed his sitting position and faced us. I was surprised. He was studying I think and infront of him was his lap top. After reviewing, Iya and I needed to leave the coffeebean because we need to be somewhere else. I asked Iya if I should say goodbye or hello because we will walk past him once we leave. She told me not to call his attention because if he was interested in me, he would approach us, but he did not. So, I did not bid farewell to him when we left.

I thank God for Iya’s life because if she was not around, I would not know what to do, since I am in the process of moving on with the guy. It’s been so long already, in fact I have not been thinking about him for a while because I was busy at work and reviewing for IELTS. However, our paths crossed again.

Moreover, I went with Iya at Benefit and Mac Cosmetics. I accompanied her while she bought an eye definer for the “kilay”, I don’t really know the exact name. I will ask her. And she also bought a makeup for contour. Then, we watched the first song of Hajji Alejandro’s mall show special for mother’s day entitled “May minamahal”, then we went to Dashing Diva and had a pedicure. She chose the light pink color and I chose the black nail polish.

In the next succeeding days after that Sunday, I am meeting up with Iya and Mer, reviewing for IELTS, either at Coffeebean, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts. We also went to a gym at Pine Crest and exercised. We ate chiken inasal together with Mer at J.T’s in the middle of the night after reviewing. Then, we also ate at Pao Tsin, Robinsons’ Magnolia’s food court. Also, Iya, Mer and I had watched already a movie, a horror film about Jigsaw, last 2017 at Robinsons Magnolia too while eating pop corn. Other than that, Iya accompanied me in buying cosmetics of L’oreal Paris. She told me also to watch make up tutorials in youtube for personal development and for me to look prettier. I learned so many things from her, from makeup and enjoying and being spontaneous in life.

We will be having a sleep over at my unit this Wednesday night with Mer to review for IELTS. Thank you for Iya’s life. I found a friend.

#TheSW30 Day 12: Your proudest accomplishment

Day-12Hi! I am on day 12 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Your proudest accomplishment.

I am 27 years old by now and my proudest accomplishment was when I graduated Valedictorian in High School and Cum Laude in the Bachelor of Science of Nursing.

I have been accepted as well in the Master of Hospital Administration (MHA) program of the University of the Philippines Manila. But I was not able to finish my degree and I just had 34 units from the said program, because I failed Epidemiology and got a grade of 5.00. I was devastated but I know UP teaches their students as well on how to be resilient, though some times they might fail their students too. I have been blessed to have attended the MHA program of the university. I am blessed with the colleagues and the professors that I have met.

For God’s glory, I won’t back down. I know I have a wonderful future ahead of me because I have a great God. I am a depression fighter. Carry on Jaea! 🙂

#TheSW30 Day 11: Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date


Hi! I am on day 11 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date.

Well, I have been in to a lot of dates already, with my ex boyfriends and some of my friends; but my worst date was when I had to go to the movies with my ex boyfriend to watch a film which I have forgotten already. I was asleep the entire movie for I was so tired from duty and since my fourth ex boyfriend was a nursing student as well that time, we had difficulty blending in our schedule because he belongs in the other section. He also has duties as well in the hospital. Finding time is one of the most difficult part of being in a relationship especially when the both of you are busy with school requirements and family engagements. We were legal by the way, both of our families know that my fourth ex and I are in a relationship.

So, to compensate with the relationship that my ex and I had, most of our quality time spent together was at their house. His father would cook our food or his grandmother would buy food from the outside so we can eat while studying for the upcoming exams. We study exclusively together at their house. I helped him pass most of the exams by teaching him pharmacology and microbiology. We were on our third year that time.

Nonetheless, my funniest date was when I was invited by a friend to attend a valentine date at a church where I have been involved for three years as part of the music ministry from 2011 to 2013. That was the time when my fourth ex boyfriend broke up with me, year 2011. I was depressed during the college week and I was a fourth year graduating nursing student that time, filled with loads of requirements that needs to be passed. But I still went to the valentine date entitled “Keep Falling In Love”. My valentine date that time was a lot younger than me because there was a draw-lots of hearts and my other pair of heart was with a young boy named Matt. I really enjoyed that night. I found new friends, Christian friends.

I realized that when we give our heart’s broken pieces to the LORD, He is faithful to mend it all again. He will give us a new heart and a renewed right spirit within. Jesus can love us more than we could ever imagine. He knows how being rejected felt like and He knows what is inside of our hearts and minds even if we have not articulated them yet. He knows the past, the present and the future.

Kasi Hindi Ako Ganun Kaganda

“Ang presyo ng isang painting ay nakadepende sa kung sino ang gumawa nito. Kung mahusay ang gumawa, mataas ang presyo. Kung painting ka, alam mo ba kung gaano ka kamahal? Buhay lang naman ang ibinayad para sa iyo ni Jesus dahil sa sobrang taas ng value mo. “-Rigel

I am so blessed after reading this post. It made me realize that I am beautiful too. Just like how beautifully you were created. Jesus Christ loves all of us. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Although, sometimes, I feel insecure.. actually hindi lang some times, most of the time.. feeling ko marami pang kulang sakin at hindi ako ganun kaganda kasi, hindi ako nagugustuhan ng mga guys na nagugustuhan ko. Ano kaya ang problema? Ako ba? Haha. So, ayun, hindi ko sure. Pero masaya pa rin ako kahit ganun. Marami akong realizations sa buhay. Hindi ko makocontrol kung sino yung mga gusto ako bilang kaibigan at kung sino yung mga may hinanakit sakin. Kasi, hindi naman ako si God. I am just an ordinary person. I am striving real hard but my feet are in the ground. Alam ko na malalampasan ko lahat ng pagsubok as I grow into a more mature woman, with the help of God, who gives wisdom and knowledge. Thank you Lord.

A Blog To Remember

Madalas tayong mga babae, hindi natin maiwasang magkumpara ang sarili natin sa iba. Bakit ba iniisip nating masmaganda ang unat kesa sa kulot? Pero nagpakulot na naman ang mga straight? Bakit gusto pang pumayat pa more eh payat na nga. Kahit na magapply ka pa ng smokey na eyeshadows, hindi mo kailanman maitatago sa mata ang mga sagot ng mga bakit. At ang karaniwang sagot, “Kasi hindi ako ganon kaganda”.

Mayroong isang kabataan, “Ate naiingit ako sa kaniya. Halos lahat ng crush niya, nililigawan siya. Bakit ako? Ni isa, wala? Bakit hindi ba ako ganoon kaganda?”

Minsan kahit sa loob ng pamilya. “Mas pinapaburan siya Ate kasi masmaganda siya. Lagi siyang dinadala sa opisina ni Papa. Ako hanggang gate lang. Kasi maganda siya. Siya, laging may pasalubong. Bakit ate? Kasi hindi ako ganun kaganda? ”

“Binigay ko sa kaniya lahat. Pati katawan ko. Hindi kasi siya kuntento sa puso ko…

#TheSW30 Day 10: Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you


Hi! I am on day 10 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you.

My name is Ma. Jaenara Manaog Bitao, and my nickname is Jaea.

As per google my name Ma. or Maria from baby name wizard is a Latin form of Mary, which is derived from the Hebrew Miryām, a name of debated meaning. Many believe it to mean “sea of bitterness” or “sea of sorrow.” However, some sources cite the alternative definitions of “rebellion,” “wished-for child,” and “mistress or lady of the sea.” The name is borne in the Bible by the mother of Jesus, the son of God.

I guess it is quite true that I am a lady of the sea. I love the sea. Haha!

However, I could not disagree that I do wish to become a mom someday. I am not getting any younger now and I hope that in God’s time, it will be provided, when I am ready and when the right man for me finds me. I am quite bitter too, but I surrender all my heartaches to God.

Let’s do an etymological cut of my name to Jae – nara.

I am so glad after I saw this at eBabyNames.com:

Jae means victory, healer, supplanter, Jay bird and respect.

Then the nara name:

My mom told me that she got my name Nara inspired from the Narra Tree (Pterocarpus indicus), the Philippines’ national tree, which symbolizes strength. She said that she wanted me to be strong in handling challenges in life.

Next is my nick name, Jaea.

Jaea means victory in Hindu.

Jea (another version of Jaea) means “Hope” from Guyana, African origin and from Hebrew origin as well which means “Beautiful“.

I thank God because He is my creator. He created me beautifully. 😍 I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

I am inspired by what I learned about the meaning of my names. Yes. I really do want to become successful someday. I claim victory, success and triumph in my endeavors. I hope that I would be able to do them for my self improvement and progress and not just for myself and family alone, but to glorify God.

#TheSW30 Day 9: Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior”

day-9-300x300Hi! I am on day 9 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU and that living alone allows you to do (For example, I sometimes dance around the house with my cat to Frank Sinatra).

Just for you not to be shocked, I am a weirdo. I sometimes feel like an alien in this world. I feel like I am a separate entity that needs to be somewhere else that still I do not know yet. Some of my friends tell me that I have a strange behavior which is different from anything natural or ordinary.

I tend to smile sometimes for no reason and I tend to laugh alone (not the loud laugh, just the giggle). I do not know why, maybe because I have a delayed reaction to a certain thing that happened in the past beyond my control. Is this bad? I tend to have flashbacks in my mind and when that happens, I remember the feeling of being in that situation and I feel like daydreaming, then my mind spaces out from reality and I start giggling or smiling. Some of my family members would ask me why did I smile or why did I giggle for no valid reason. I tell them, I have thought of something and the idea stayed in my mind. But, I do not share to them what I have thought of because I am not comfortable sharing my thoughts immediately. I need to process my thoughts. That is why, they tell me “hindi maganda na ngumingiti o tumatawa ng walang dahilan”. The truth is, I have a reason why I smiled and laughed. However, I just do not want to share at once why I did those things. For that reason, having a face mask helps me cover my lips, in times I have sudden bursts of giggles or smiles.

If you see me smiling or giggling.. just call my attention, because my mind might be spacing out and traveling to somewhere else in my imagination. I am not a crazy person just proud to say that I am insane. lol.

#TheSW30 Day 8: Five things that are most important to you in a future mate


Hi! I am on day 8 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Five things that are most important to you in a future mate.

This is a challenging question. I myself is having difficulty in this matter. The five things that are most important to me in a future mate are:

  1. We both should have the same God. I hope that he is a Christian.
  2. Respect and good relationship with his mother. This is vital since I want to be treated with respect. I also hope that he has a good relationship with his mother. It is because, he might treat me just like how he treats his mother in the long run. I do not want to be pushed over. I want to be respected and I will give that to him as well, with all my heart.
  3. Responsible Leader with a stable career. I hope that he will be a provider to our future children.
  4. Loyalty. I know that couples also have bad nights and when that time comes, I hope that he would be loyal to me, whether we face a petty or a big fight. I hope that he knows how to handle situations like this. I hope that he knows how to handle conflict.
  5. He will support me in my pursuits or goals in life. I hope that my future mate will support me in the things that interests me and I hope that he would accept me. I hope that he knows how to take care of his mental health.

Additional plus points if he is fun to be with or if he has a good sense of humor. Also, it would be an edge if he is musically inclined, because I am a music lover. I sing whenever I am stressed, it helps me to be relieved. Another thing is, I hope he knows how to swim, because I am a swimmer, I love to swim. Most importantly, I hope that he will make time for me despite his busy schedule and I hope that he knows how to communicate with my love language.

#TheSW30 Day 7: Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point

Day-7Hi! I am on day 7 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point.

Right now, I currently live in a small apartment, just a few walking distance from the University of Santo Tomas, Manila. I am a registered nurse and recently have no work. I was a part of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Philippine General Hospital last January 2018, but since I had my sick leave last March 2018.. I am not sure whether I shall go back to the NICU -PGH anymore. Something happened during that phase when I was working in the area. I hope that I could have defended myself back then, because I had an argument with a medical doctor who did not have a trodat during her rounds and was not able to place her license number in the chart. I am typing in front of my laptop now and recalling some things that happened in the past.

My PGH – NICU experience was a memorable one for me. In that short period of time, I was able to learn so many things like OGT insertions, how to tidy a newborn, how to feed a newborn via OGT from a syringe pump and via cupfeeding. I also learned how to regulate IV fluids and concoctions. I learned the interventions to be done when infiltration happens, I have thermoregulated the warmers and the isolettes. I have also done tracheostomy care and I have done a blood transfusion. I learned a lot from my training coordinator Maam Maggie and my senior nurses: Maam Riza, Maam Genar, Maam Kat, Maam Elaine, Maam Japeth, Maam Bing, Maam Aiza, who taught me to do the things that I must do immediately so that I won’t forget. Maam Gwendolyn saved me during the time that I had to suction my patient and my machine was not properly prepared yet. Gwen was a life saver. Most of my other co worker’s name I have not placed here because I cannot fully remember. But I had a good time with my co-job order nurses: Louriane and Janelle, who had been a great help to me, when I was struggling emotionally and I had to let out my feelings. I miss them so much, but I guess staying won’t be healthy for me anymore. I need to go. My headnurse by that time was Maam Daisy and my Chief Nurse was Maam Fe. The clerk assigned to the unit was Deborah, as far as I can remember. Although, Deborah and I had a misunderstanding during the last days of my shift.. I was glad that we worked professionally, even though I had been annoyed one time when she wrote my name without placing Maria or Ma. beside my name.. But it’s just a petty thing.

If I had not failed my epidemiology subject with my Master’s degree, I would have already finished my comprehensive exam right now and I have already defended my management study and would have by now graduated with the MHA degree from the UP Manila College of Public Health. Also, if I continued my med school, I would have been a graduating 4th year medical student this year 2018. I would have been a Bedan doctor of San Beda College of Medicine. If I had already worked after graduation last 2011 at Makati Medical Center as nurse, I would have probably passed already my IELTS exam and have been already working abroad, probably in Ireland or London. I would have had already my own condominium unit, my own car by now.. and I would have been helping my father in Bicol and my my mother in the educational fees of my siblings.

However, there were bumps along the way. It was not a perfect ride for me. I had struggles with my heart problems and heartaches, but I believe I am more strong now compared to who I was back then. I pray that God will open the right doors for me one at a time as I pursue life in the coming years.




#TheSW30 Day 6: Sound off on the quote “Every woman has the exact love life she wants”


I am on day 6 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Sound off on the quote “Every woman has the exact love life she wants”

Love life as defined by Merriam Webster is about a person’s romantic and sexual activities and relationships. While life is defined as the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death; love is more complex.

I remembered a person whom I have met in the year 2014; I will hide him by the name San Pedro. He once answered a question about “What is love?” His answer was, “Salamat sa mga comments. I will do consider doing some of it. I received one question though (and as promised, his identity will not be revealed):

Question: “What is love?”

San Pedro: Love does not exist in Mathematics. In Physiology, love is an abstract concept with contradicting findings in scientific literature. As I have told you, concepts with mathematical proof is a step in becoming a scientific truth. So if love exists… You be the judge… Math and Physiology-wise, they don’t… (Though, I’m not an expert in this topic!).

There are many comments that came along after he posted the question.

A. Nora: Hahaha.. natatawa po ako dito.:))

B. Pacifi: Love is the readiness to get hurt! Ha ha ha! #hugotnohugot

C. Nora: Haha..i-CPC na yan doc Coco. #Hugotpamore. Love is food and love is med.:))

D. Renzo: Sino naman nagtanung nun? anyways..wala po talaga love sa math..kaya hirap na hirap po ang students hanapin ang value ng x eh..kasi walang value ang mga x eh..#hugot

E. Andre: This is a major call for a global conference since it’s pandemic.

F. PLM: (Laughing emoji repeated three times)

G. Jaia: Hindi matanggap ni Manci, na walang value ang X. #Akala mo lang wala, pero meron, meron! HAHAHA.- C. Elefante

H. PLM: ^ hahaha

I. Nora: Basta usapang ganito, mabilis magreact ang tao. Hahaha.. Yan tayo eh.:)) #WhoGoatPls

In as much as I was entertained by the answers to the query, it is true enough that love is an abstract thing, can be existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence; but sex is concrete. They say, abstract love is better than no love at all. It is so complex yet a wonderful intricate in a person’s heart. They say that the ancient Greeks used seven words to define the different states of love. These are the following:

Storge: natural affection, the love you share with your family.

Philia: the love that you have for friends.

Eros: sexual and erotic desire kind of love (positive or negative)

Agape: this is the unconditional love, or divine love

Ludus: this is playful love, like childish love or flirting.

Pragma: long standing love. The love in a married couple.

Philautia: the love of the self (negative or positive)

These are seven different kind of feelings: Storge, Philia, Eros, Agape, Ludus, Pragma and Philautia. In this life, people feel different emotions for different situations and individuals, as depicted from Hufftington post by Adrian Catron’s What is love? A Philosophy of life.

Well, to mark it off.. I believe that love exists. In tennis as a sport, love exists even if it is zero. Though one theory claims the term is a corruption of the French l’oeuf (“the egg”) to describe the shape of the number zero, the Oxford English Dictionary suggests that love really does mean “love.” The only thing keeping a scoreless player on the court is the love of the game.
To answer the question that every woman has the exact love life she wants, I disagree with the given statement. Love is an involvement of more than one person. If mathematically calculated, it is equivalent to one plus one plus plus one equals three (1+1+1=3), which is really equivalent to one (1, if God is added, as what I’ve learned from Janetteikz, a poet who wrote the P4CM’s I will wait for you. If romantically speaking, love I believe is a synergy of two beings. One male and one female plus God. I believe in heterosexuality, that a man is born for a woman under God’s covering.

It is not just for a woman to decide alone in a relationship, because the male or the man should be the leader. No woman wants to be in a relationship with a man whom she can push over all around or a man she does not respect. She wants to be led. It is because leadership in love is a necessity. Love is pivotal in a family, which they will both build in the future, which is portrayed like an umbrella covering a smaller umbrella and another smaller umbrella. It is to be decided that the male should be the leader covering his wife, not the other way around. That is why, males should be covered by God’s grace in order for him to do this. It entails a supernatural power to be able to give love with no fear and no pretensions and no selfish reasons.

God, I believe is not killjoy when it comes to relationships. He knows what each of us wants and He knows what each of us needs. But then, I admire men who can lead their wives despite them facing the art of war in love, even though God gave us the freewill to decide whom to have a relationship with and whom to marry. God gave us the gift of freewill, the freedom to choose between good or evil. Now, to which side do you belong?

IELTS Review

I enrolled for IELTS review for Academic module last May 3, 2018. The program that I enrolled in is intensive good for 2 weeks or 10 days lecture plus coaching, which started last May 7, 2018 from 6-9 PM, from Monday to Friday until May 18, 2018.

The IELTS or the International English Language Testing System is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration.

IELTS assesses all of our English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how we will use English at study, at work, and at play, in our new life abroad.

IELTS is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on-one speaking test to assess our English communication skills. This means that we will be assessed by having a real-life conversation with a real person. This is the most effective and natural way of testing our English conversation skills.

The review center where I applied in is JROOZ located at Adelina street beside España, just a few walking distance away from Carola street where I currently live.

The JROOZ review center gave me two blue books to review and study. The first book is the Book 1 Acad, which is a necessity in the first week of the review. This book covers the pre test questions given during the first few days. Then, the other book is about Book 2 Mock Test Acad, which is important for the mock test during the second week of my intensive review program.

The academic policies of the review center are the following:

  1. Attendance
    • Students must arrive 15 minutes before the start of the PRETEST on Day 1 of review. Students enrolled in the Unlimited Review who abandoned the program have one month to return. After this period, students will have to pay the full amount of the program again. Unlimited Review is valid for one year from first day of attendance.
  2. ID Forms
    • NO ID FORM, NO ENTRY. Only fully paid students will be issued ID forms. Upon the start of the class, the student must submit the ID form to the instructor and must claim it after each review session. Left ID forms can be claimed from the Academic Department within one month only. Those who lost their ID Forms shall pay a replacement fee of P25.00. Gate pass will only be provided once but must be signed by the admitting personnel.
  3. Coaching Reservations
    • Students need to reserve for one-on-one coaching in Speaking and Writing. Students must be aware of the dates time they reserve for. Students are obliged to come 10 minutes before their Speaking and Writing coaching sessions. For the writing coaching, students must prepare their own Task 1 and Task 2 prior to coming to the review center. COPIED written outputs are not allowed.
  4. Mock tests
    • Intensive and Unlimited Review students must bring their Book 2 when attending the Mock Test. No book no mock test. Strictly NO BORROWING of Book 1 & Book 2.
  5. Endorsements
    • In order for a student to be endorsed, the following requirements must be met: two (2) consecutive Mock Test results reaching their target IELTS scores, good attendance and a final evaluation by the Academic Department.
  6. Make up Class Schedules
    • For unscheduled/ unforeseen cancellation of classes the instructor will inform the students of the make up class schedule and venue.
  7. Review Schedule
    • Schedule may change without prior notice.

I have read and understood the Academic Policies of the review center. I will abide by its policies and be responsible enough to monitor my schedules and progress, and to bring the required review materials during the entire course of my review.

Signed by me. 🙂

I am taking up IELTS for educational reasons and as a requirement for Japan. I plan to take the June 23 exam for IELTS together with Mariya and Mer, my former workmates at Manilamed. I hope to pass the IELTS exam together with Iya and Mer. So help us God.
