It’s been a long time since I’ve joined this meme. I miss my MYM family that has been a part of my weekly meme few months ago. I’m back and gathered photos in my archive hoping to share more story in my future post behind Mellow Yellow. Today, I chose 3M products to feature for MYM. Just recently, I was invited for a Bloggers Lunch Tour. The first to discover new product is what I love most attending to this kind of event.
UST launched 400days countdown to 400 years last December 18, 2009. The theme of the grand event is “400 Years Celebration of Unending Grace.”
The first printed book Doctrina Cristiana that is now in the US Library of Congress will be part of the exhibit of Quadricentennial celebration. Jose Rizal’s academic record while he was still student of UST will also be viewed for the first time in 2011.
The university has been visited by Pope Paul VI on Nov. 1970 and Pope John Paul II on Feb. 1981 and January 1995. UST is the only university that has been visited by two popes three times.
The UST Quadricentennial celebrations will run from December 2009 until January 2012, and my daughter is just lucky to be there in time of Quadricentennial celebration.
The miracle fruit, or miracle berry plant (Synsepalum dulcificum), produces berries that, when eaten, cause sour foods (such as lemons and limes) subsequently consumed to taste sweet. The berry, which contains active polyphenols was first documented by explorer Chevalier des Marchais who searched for many different fruits during a 1725 excursion to its native West Africa. Marchais noticed that local tribes picked the berry from shrubs and chewed it before meals. The plant grows in bushes up to 20 feet (6.1 m) high in its native habitat, but does not usually grow higher than ten feet in cultivation, and it produces two crops per year, after the end of the rainy season. It is an evergreen plant that produces small red berries, with flowers that are white and which are produced for many months of the year. The seeds are about the size of coffee beans.

I took this shot last week while walking around the campus. Did you see the yellow? Gold and white are the official color of the university. Growling Tiger is the varsity team, Tigresses for womens and Tiger Cubs for high school team. The Yellow Jackets is the official pep squad and drumline. See the yellow spread all over the campus.
