A Delightful Evening at SamgyupTa Korean Restaurant: Professors’ Weekend Escape

A Week of Educational Pursuits

As an educator committed to my profession, the demands of the job often leave me exhausted, especially after conducting classes and extra training programs for my clients. Despite my busy schedule, I cherish the weekends as a time for rest and recreation, a break from the hustle of the week. This particular Saturday brought an unexpected invitation from my co-teacher, Dr. Lei Lani Dusaban, leading to a delightful evening escape.

The captured moment reflects the joy and humor that filled the air, showcasing the vibrant personalities and the shared moments of merriment that made the dining experience truly memorable.

Testing Cars and Spontaneous Plans

The weekend began with a private message from Dr. Lei Lani  Dusaban expressing her desire to test her car. Intrigued by the idea, we quickly organized a small group (all professors from the University of St. La Sall), including Sonny Cabahug and Dr. Jojo Bayona, to join the adventure. With plans set, we embarked on a journey that would lead us to Silay City.

Lei Lani Dusaban and Jojo Bayona showcased their modeling prowess, striking their best poses with style and confidence. The duo brought a touch of glamour to the scene, capturing a moment that highlighted both their personalities and the dynamic energy they shared during the photo shoot.
