Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Congratulations UP Mindanao!

UP Mindanao has just got the 9th place in Top Study Links' Top Colleges & Universities in the Philippines 2011. I'm just so proud! Here's the Top Ten. First column is the World Rank; Second is the Name of School; and the third one is the Country Rank.

Twenty years back, the vision of having UP in Mindanao metamorphosed during the 3rd regular session of the House of representatives on April 30, 1990. That was two months before I was born. LOL! it was 1st District RepresentativePprospero C. Nograles who paved the way for the House Bill No. 30358 known as an "Act to establish the University of the Philippines in Mindanao." Mr. Nograles seemed to foresee Mindanao's success if UP's by its side.

This intense conviction for the endowment of another UP constituent in Mindanao was finally enacted into law on February 20, 1995 through the Bill, Republic Act 7889. On the same year, the Board of Regents submitted an official declaration of the creation of the University of the Philippines Mindanao. Information gotten from this site.

Time has passed so fast and UP Mindanao has retained its undisputed prestige for just more than a decade of existence. It has proven its excellence and dignity in just a short span of period. I believe that it will carry on until the day our country stops needing it, which is totally impossible.

I am one of the proud and honored residents, or Iskolar ng Bayan as they say, who once dreamed of being here, and now I am one of those who made the wisest decisions. Being a UP student is indeed one of the greatest way to make our lives in the future take a notch higher. Fellow UP Min students, let's celebrate our victory together and hope for more fruitful years coming ahead. God speed!
