2008 Philippine Bar Exam Result


Excitement and anxiety have been surely building up today at Padre Faura in Manila. Across the nation (Philippines), the 2008 bar examinees might already be busy checking on the Supreme Court website.

While I was working with ACCRA, I was mesmerized when a 1997 (?) or 1998 (?) barrister, Macel Fernandez, was taken in by the law firm.  She was just so beautiful. And then, the bar results came out. She was the bar topnotcher. How can she have beauty and brains combined? She epitomizes not just the usual cliche “beauty and brains”. She is celebrity-beautiful. The brain part is not ordinary either. A bar topnotcher!

Since I was working on the executive floor of ACCRA, it was unavoidable to overhear some of the supposedly-private conversations among the partners. It was not a secret that Macel Fernandez was Angara’s protege. A founding partner divulged that Angara told them to get Macel Fernandez to work with ACCRA “at any cost”.

I know she is a rare specie. But tonight, will there be another “beauty-and-brain combined” bar topnotcher? Exciting!

  2. I simply had to thank you so much once again. I’m not certain the things that I could possibly have undertaken without those tactics shared by you concerning that subject matter. Entirely was the intimidating matter for me personally, however , considering your well-written mode you handled that made me to cry for happiness. I will be happier for your service and as well , sincerely hope you are aware of an amazing job that you are getting into teaching the rest through the use of your website. Most probably you’ve never encountered all of us.

  4. hi jo, your daughters are very interesting. hmmm…. i’m intrigued. who is that famous actor? i have to admit though that i’m not into korean actors. only the name daniel henney is easy to remember. but that’s because he has an american name (dad’s from the US?). he’s with the latest wolverine movie.

  5. Thanks for your response. That was awfully nice…I am at home right now nursing a bruise from being reckless this morning. I transferred a heavy fudog and slammed it on my right leg…Thought I was strong enough to carry it to the other side of my garden…

    I haven’t been out this weekend. Two days ago, I planned to attend the Cherry Blossom Festival in downtown Seattle but was so tired to do anything earlier. I was up writing until 4 am…

    What an amazing ejournal you have. I do but the old-fashioned way…

    Congratulations as you are having another baby. I have three myself:Shelby, Rainier and Sierra. Shelby and Rainier are out and about today. Shelby is hanging out with her friends. It’s almost 11 pm but she hasn’t return yet. Trusting her, definitely, was hard, especially since there are so many temptations out in the city but knowing her, she is pretty disciplined. She is 18 now and is going to the university this September. The scholarship that was granted for her will keep me away from working a second job. She managed to get a scholarship and that, alone, is giving me bragging rights nowadays…

    Rainier, my second daughter, went to attend a birthday party in Whidbey Island. She will be sleeping in a yacht of her friend’s parents…This is her second year going to the island…

    My youngest daughter is with me right now watching Harry Potter for the NTH time while my hubby is hiding outside in the cold sneaking to smoke a cigar.

    Glad you are liking Seoul…My husband first wife is Korean and two of his children speaks fluent Korean…From what I know, his ex-wife’s brother is a famous actor in Korea! I met him in Hawaii two years ago but I probably and conveniently forgot his name!!! My first meeting with the family was awkward. They seemed to be focused on material things…I maybe wrong, though…

    Oh well, I have to go now…I have been uploading my pictures and I have about 10,000 to go!!! I just got back from a month of vacation that’s why.

    Talk to you later!

    Jo

  6. hi jo, thanks for dropping by. i visisted your page and admire how you value travel. i’m trying to establish the same for my family, too my son didn’t have a 1st birthday party. we brought him to tokyo, disneyland instead. he remembers china every now and then. hopefully, we can continue:-).

    it is never too late to fulfill your dreams. my law school classmate’s father was reviewing for the bar when we were on our first year. he passed! he was 60 years old. he took up law after resigning from his job. i quit law school when my husband was asked to come over here in Seoul (to work with the HQ). so far, no regrets:-). i do look back. because i made wonderful friends… and we continue to keep in touch:-).

  7. I took the bar exams in 1989. Unluckily, I failed…My classmates who were not even expected to pass then, passed. Those who passed were very lucky…I moved on. In fact, I moved to the United States…Had I known then what I know now, I would have taken nursing…Nurses here make so much money!!! This is the most lucrative job over here in the U.S – they are not even affected by the economic crisis…But, I didn’t go to law school because I wanted to make money. I wanted to go to law school then so I can help poor people who cant’ afford lawyers especially the poor people. I started as a legal assistant here then resigned after a few months because the practice of my boss then didn’t fit my value system…

    I still have nightmares for failing the bar exams – until now. My eldest daughter wants me to go back to law school and gain back my lost confidence and I think I will…Or maybe, come back to the Philippines and retake my bar exams…Hopefully this time, I will pass with the blessings of all those people who wanted to see me as a successful lawyer!

    1. sorry i just read this piece about you now.
      if you have not taken the bar exams again, forget about the word quit. as they say, you dont have to be great to start, you just have to start to be great.

  8. i’ve always wondered WHAT IF i did pursue law school….will i be able to pass tHE bar exams?(I have a feeling the bar exams could make me CRAZY as hell….kkkkk)yikes…scary!!!!!! hats off to all the bar exam takers, they did their best and i hope their best was good enough.

    cher´s last blog post..Too Personal!!!!!!!!!!!
