White hair chronicles LXVI - Taga UP Diliman ka kung...

More than a week after the UPCAT brought down a flood of memories, the reminiscences continue to pour. thanks to the Facebook page Taga UP Diliman ka kung... that has gone viral. Less than a week old, its members has doubled to over 17k over the weekend.

Nostalgic former UP students posted their memories of their Diliman days on topics ranging from their student numbers to their favorite professors. The hottest topic continues to be the one started by Bibeth Orteza. Her post 'E paano namang nabububuko kung matanda ka nang taga-UP Diliman?' elicited close to 2k comments so far.

A very funny post, to UP students at least, is about the acronyms of other schools. To my friends from other schools, please don't take this against UP people. After all, you may say UP stands for Useless People.

Anyway, the newest favorite FB page of UP Diliman people jokes that the acronyms stand for:

ADMU - Ang Daming Mali sa UPCAT;  
DLSU – Di Lumusot Sa UPCAT; 
UST – UP Sana Tayo; 
FEU – Failed Exam sa UP; 
MAPUA – Meron Akong Panaginip: UP Ako; 
PUP – Pekeng UP; 
CEU – Cannot Enter UP; 
St. PAUL – Sana Talaga Pumasa Ako sa UPCAT, Lord; 
    and my favorite, 
UE - UP ng mga ngongo.

    Anong interpretation ng taga UP sa PLM? Fortunately 80 % of PLM profs are or were from UP. President Consuelo Blanco was, or Atty. Adel Tamano was once from UP. Even I went to UP after PLM; my office sent me. Many are and were.
