KAISA- Nagkakaisang Iskolar para sa Pamantasan at Sambayanan  tomorrow will launch Her Time is Up, a forum series on the 2010 elections, with their first guest presidentiable Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero.

Aptly titled “Tatakbo ka ba?” , the forum will be from 1pm to 4pm and will be held at the Malcolm Theater of the UP College of Law in Diliman, Quezon City. Expected to serve as reactors to Chiz are Dean Marvic Leonen, School of Economics Student Council Chairperson Inna Morillo and National College of Public Administration & Governance Student Council Chairperson Pebbles Sanchez.

Sanchez’s NCPAG-SC is also one of the co-presentors of the event together with the College of Science Student Council, the College of Home Economics Student Council, the Asian Institute of Tourism Student Council, the College of Human Kinetics Student Council, the College of Architecture Student Council, the Alliance of Concerned Dormitories, Alpha Phi Beta Fraternity and the University Student Council – Mass Media Committee.

According to the organizers, either Senator Richard Gordon or Former President Joseph Estrada will be their second guest presidentiable. They are also closely coordinating with the people of Senator Manny Villar, Former DPWH Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane and Senator Noynoy Aquino.

After the presidentiables, KAISA will also allow Vice Presidentiables and Senatoriables to present their platforms or what-have-you’s to the UP community.

Are you tired of just ranting about your company rules?

My friend Nica Dumlao informed me that the Employees’ League in ICT-enabled Services (E-Lites) is sponsoring a Seminar-Workshop for workers in the Business Process Outsourcing industry this Saturday and Sunday (September 19 & 20) at Gems Hotel in Antipolo City.

She also said that the aforementioned event will be about the Philippine Labor Code, International Labor Standards, and Occupational Safety & Health. The event is entirely free of charge.

E-Lites is the group behind the free concert event for BPO employees at the Penguin Bar in Malate last year.

UPDATE: For those interested in reserving a slot, simply proceed to Chowking Cubao (beside Eurotel) 10am on Saturday and text/call me at 09167706376 or email me (nearestcomfortroom@yahoo.com).

I learned from my blogger-friend Brian Ong that The Lobby of The Peninsula Manila turns 33 today, and they are offering their halo halo harana, pancit luglog and schueblig  at 1976 prices (yes, 33 pesos each), the date the hotel opened 33 years ago.

I also learned that the promotion will be strictly on no-reservations and first-come/first-serve basis and that drinks and items not on the rollback list will be regularly priced.They also won’t allow takeout orders and sharing. This will be a one-day only promotion only from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

I hope my Makati-based (either as residents or employees) friends could grab this opportunity since my chances are dim. Haha.
