back to school!
i went back to my alma mater, the ateneo de manila university, for one reason.. manangs!!!!
welcome to manangs. an institution in the ateneo campus, as much as the blue eagle gym or the gonzaga, kostka, or faura building. this was my most favorite place to eat at when i was a student!!!! alamat ang manangs. located by the college covered courts and right beside the tennis court, manangs is the most delicious, most laid back, most home-y place to eat in when in ateneo.
they are famous for their breaded porkchop! it goes perfectly with papa banana ketchup! and i just recently discovered they now serve binagoongan! super yummy too!
my personal favorite is the liempo. to. die. for!!!! i'm a big liempo person and the manangs liempo is one of the best i've ever had. haha! i also tried their adobo i must say its a winner too!
eating at manangs is happiness! if you ever find yourself inside the campus, you must eat here. :) i felt like i was transported back into time and with my white sando, jeans, and flats get up, i felt like i fit right in! like i was a student all over again! hmm.. pwedeeee!
took the chance to check out the new buildings in the campus and i must say the campus looks sooo different! since i graduated, the campus has changed so much! there's a huge cafeteria by the jg-som building, and there are landscaped gardens and sculptures nicely placed around the campus!
i was so impressed to see the mvp center which is where the org building, colayco, used to be! a place for students to hang out in, this building is insanely nice! in fact, the ground floor has a fully functional bookstore (as in they sell all school supplies you will need, they even have a mini mac center, and a whole area for ateneo shirts!) and even a bo's coffee! whaaaat?!
i wanted to visit my favorite professor who i feel changed my life, dr. leovino garcia of the philosophy department, but he wasn't in at the time. i sat in his class a few years ago and even wrote a blogpost about it (click here to read my nerdy thoughts!) and i plan to sit in again sometime. i vow to visit him soon!
going back to school is refreshing and inspiring. i suggest you visit your alma mater once in a while! it makes you feel the idealism, positivity, hopefulness that you felt when you were a student, all over again!
amdg. go ateneo!
