UPSCA Choir, 1953 with Prof Antonio Molina
The video below by the UP Madrigal singers performing the Prayers of St Francis reminds me of my college days and the UP Student Catholic Action (UPSCA) choir during my college years from 1952-1956 at UP Diliman, Quezon City Philippines. I do not have videos of our UPSCA concerts, but just photographs( below) of my college days. If you are in some of the photos, I would like to hear from you!
The following are some of the photos during my college years at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines from 1952-1956. My involvement with the activities of UP Student Catholic Action (UPSCA) were the highlights of my college life experiences. At that time I was studying for my Bachelor Science degree in Chemistry. I graduated in October, 1955 then went to US to pursue my Ph.D degree in 1959. The rest is history and for details of my life after my college years, please visit my site at, http://davidbkatague.blogspot.com

Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.
