10th Stop: UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES

in Green


The University of the Philippines in Diliman has a total land area of 493 hectares wherein within this 493-hectare property includes building infrastructures, research facilities, Barangay UP campus (residential) and forested area.










The Oblation is the iconic symbol of the University, a concrete sculpture, which depicts selfless offering of oneself to his country. The statue was based on the second verse of Rizal’s Mi Ultimo Adios;

In fields of battle, deliriously fighting,

Others give you their lives, without doubt, without regret;

Where there’s cypress, laurel or lily,
On a plank or open field, in combat or cruel martyrdom,
If the home or country asks, it's all the same--it matters not.





UP was founded on June 18, 1908 and it is the Philippines ’ premier institution of higher learning, and the country's National University.

So,

Its more fun pag naging ISKOLAR ka NG BAYAN in QC! J




But wait... there's more! J



Do you know that in estimating the value of real estate, appraisers also consider social factors in determining the price of a property?

Many people want to live in neighborhoods with good schools such as the residential areas surrounding the University of the Philippines, however, only few properties are available and as a result, a COMPETITION arises for those pieces of real estate and that COMPETITION RAISES PRICES.

nuff said!


And as for my University of the Philippines Street?? err.. School Style... J


Since UP is surrounded by nature’s beauty, I choose to wear an outfit with lots of green. Green is best suited in any weather, so if you want to look stunning and sophisticated try wearing green J
