THE DARK Knight Rises, the movie, is yet to hit cinemas this coming July 2012. But the real Dark Knight in my life, my best friend Batman, has risen above all others in his latest endeavor in life.
The Dark Knight and I, somewhere in Greenbelt 5!
He just finished his Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of the Philippines Diliman, arguably my country’s foremost educational institution. He graduated with a general grade point average of 1.1548! As a student I’m used to getting “flat ones” – grades of “1.00” – myself, but that kind of average is just beyond my wildest dreams. I graduated at the top of my class. But not with that kind of grade.
What is more remarkable to me is that he did this while keeping a full-time job, and at a time when he welcomed his and his wife’s first bundle of joy into their lives. How he juggled all of those aspects of his life, I really couldn’t imagine.
Some say you can’t have it all. But I guess, in Batman’s case, you can almost. He does almost have it all – if not already.
Congratulations, best friend. I’m so proud of you!
One of my send-off lunches before coming to Singapore was with Batman.
He presented me with yet another one of the toys from his personal collection. This one was specifically tasked to watch over me in the Lion City. Haha!
eNTeNG and Batman. For the record, that’s my happy face. Hahaha!
See, he was already doing what he was tasked to do. Watch over me! Haha!

See Batman, you’re even the image on my MRT card! Haha! (Photo taken by Yong Run, who has always been so patient and gracious to snap my likeness whenever I strike a pose… and not scream at the top of his lungs at me and say, “eNTeNG, would you please get yourself an iPhone4?! Geez!”)
