La Salle Centennial Commemorative Swatches

This is the year that the De La Salle community gathers together to celebrate 100 years of Lasallian presence in the Philippines.

If you would like to be part of the festivities, go to to see the various activities which have been planned.

Why am I posting this in PHBestDeals? Well, a grand celebration begets souvenirs. =) I'm not talking shirts, bags or stickers. I'm talking watches. Limited edition Swatch watches to be precise.  It's time to show that you'd rather be GREEN than any other color of the rainbow.

Only 1,000 watches of each model will be produced (except the Chrono watch of which only 500 will be produced) so I strongly suggest that you find a way to get your watch soon (TIP: White 2401 & Chrono watches are fast-moving items).  Here's the deal.

1. The watches will only be available by end of October 2010.  Orders and purchases will be accepted as long as the supply lasts.

2.  Download the reservation form HERE.

3.  Reservations will be received at the Centennial Office at LS Rm 102 (DLSU Manila) but the payment is currently only accepted at the Accounting Office, either in cash or card. A 30 % deposit for each kind of watch is requested ranging from P3,000, P1500 and P1050 for the retail costs of Php10,000 (Chrono), Php5,000 (Animo with laptop bag)and Php 3,500 (White strap with Façade print or Green strap with St La Salle Signature print) respectively.

4.  The online ordering and payment facility in the Centennial  website at  is still in process.

5.  All inquiries should be coursed through the Centennial Office Team:

LS Room 102, De La Salle University
2401 Taft Avenue, 1004 Manila, Philippines

Telephone:  (632) 524-4611 to 19 local 102

Project Assistant

Hail, Hail, Alma Mater
Hail to De La Salle
We'll hold your banner high and bright
A shield of green and white

We'll fight to keep your glory bright
And never shall we fail
Hail to thee our Alma Mater
Hail! Hail! Hail!

July 7: Arnold Arre's "Kaye for Komiks" film screening

You are invited to watch Arnold Arre's "Kaye for Komiks"’ premiere screening on July 7, 2010, 7pm at U-view in Fully Booked at Bonifacio High Street. Admission is free!

Frustrated comic book artist Ken de Vera shows his friend Kaye all he knows about making comics while Kaye teaches him patience and the pursuit of artistic passion.

Ken often feels that he's trapped inside a comic book panel. Meanwhile Kaye finds that life isn't as easy as putting ink on paper. But as their relationship grows, both discover that sometimes, all it takes is the flip of a page.

Kaye for Komiks explores the local comics scene: its colorful history, its struggles and triumphs.

Running time: 57 minutes

Mihk Vergara
Cathy Ferolino
Ramon de Veyra
Erwin Romulo

...and more!

comic book greats Gerry Alanguilan, Harvey Tolibao, and Leinil Yu
