Previous Shipmate of the Month

Call the Mate

If the ship begins to roll, Call the mate
If the cook runs out of coal, Call the mate
If the old man goes to bed,
If you see a squall ahead,
If you need a sounding lead, Call the mate

If the running lights go out, Call the mate
If your latitudes in doubt, Call the mate
If the wind begins to howl,
If the sailors start to growl,
If the whistle string gets foul, Call the mate

If you’re coming into port, Call the mate
If the midnight lunch runs short, Call the mate
If the cargo starts to shift,
If the work boat goes adrift,
If the fog begins to lift, Call the mate

If you want to drop the hook, Call the mate
If you’re looking for the cook, Call the mate
If the Chief can’t give the steam,
If the mess boy has no cream,
If see a light a beam, Call the mate

If you need the crew, Call the mate
If the gangway is a wreck, Call the mate
If the skippers on the blink,
If a load falls in the drink,
If you don’t know what to think, Call the mate

Yeah-that’s who the fall guy is, it’s the mate
All the petty grief’s are his,
Yep-The mate,
And at that the poor old bird,
Never gets a pleasant word,
Thank the Lord I’m just the third,
Not the mate!

State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association-Philippines

SUC Olympic III - Central Luzon

The State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association (SCUAA) is one of the inter-collegiate sports associations in the Philippines closely related to UAAP, is the union of six major state colleges and universities in Metro Manila.

The organization was established as the State Colleges Athletic Association (SCAA) in 1953 encompassing the Philippine Normal College (now Philippine Normal University or PNU), Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC), (now Central Luzon State University or CLSU), and the Philippine College of Commerce (now Polytechnic University of the Philippines or PUP).

SCAA saw itself transformed into SCUAA in the 1970s when PCC and the Philippine College of Arts and Trades (now Technological University of the Philippines or TUP) a member school since 1959, converted into a university.

Despite many years of challenges in the forefront, SCUAA was able to gain ground in various regions in the country through the creation of regional or satellite SCUAA, hence the establishment of a National SCUAA in the mid-1980s. Two years after, the first National SCUAA was held with member state colleges and universities from Regions I, IV, V, VIII, and NCR participating.

"The worst thing that can happen in life is not to fall but not to try and regretting forever the possibility of success. Believe while other doubt; act while other wait; win while other watch."


* Steering Committee * Delta First Platoon Leader * Assistant Section Marcher - 1st cl * Star Cadet - 2nd Sem / 3cl * Best Battalion/ Company - Aquanintance /Valentines Party - 3cl *

In every task, there always be an end. After the long struggle, all the sufferings, pain and loneliness, I am proud to say that half of it is done and the rest is yet to come. Chances brought me into position that I once wished for. In PMMA I learned a lot of things, wherever I may be in the future, it will always be in my heart and mind.

To my parents, I couldn't find the right words to show my appreciation for all the things you've done for me. SALAMAT PO! To my dear brothers and sisters, thank you for your support.

To my mentors, relatives, friends, bunkmates, I am pleased to have met you all. Thank you for everything you share me.

Above all, to our Almighty God for his unending love, that kept me flourishing in my own existence; I wouldn't be in this stage in life without your will.

Visit to Hikawa Maru

Hikawa Maru (氷川丸) is a Japanese ocean liner that was built for the Nippon Yusen KK line by the Yokohama Dock Company. She was launched on 30 September 1929, and made her maiden voyage from Kobe to Seattle on 13 May 1930.She is one of three sister ships, all named after important Shinto shrines, Hikawa Shrine being located in Saitama. The other two, both lost in the war, were Heian Maru and Hie Maru.
The service provided on the ship was famous for combining splendid food and beautiful art deco interiors. She was often referred to as the Queen of the Pacific. Charlie Chaplin and Kano Jigoro (founder of Judo) are amongst the ship's more notable former passengers.

Hikawa Maru as a Hospital Ship, After Japan's entry to the war Hikawa Maru became a hospital ship, and as a result, she ultimately survived the Allied campaign against the Japanese merchant fleet. After the end of the war she was used by the U.S. for troop repatriation until 1947.Afterwards the Hikawa Maru was returned to Japan and carried cargo between Japan and the US.
In 1954 she was taken out of service, but following a refit she returned to carrying passengers across the Pacific. Falling passenger numbers due to the growth of air travel led to the eventual termination of the service in 1960.

In 1961 Hikawa Maru became a floating youth hostel and museum permanently berthed at Yokohama.
In December 2006 the Hikawa Maru museum was closed and doubts about her future were raised. Happily, NYK Line began the restoration of the Hikawa Maru in August 2007, and the ship was reopened to the public on 25 April 2008, the vessel's 78th birthday.
