Brent’s High School Graduation and Chuck Lidell

Elijah Brent Bautista graduated high school from Sienna College last March 29, 2011. His Social studies grade was the best for the batch. He is the youngest son of Noel Bautista and Zammerly Zamudio who are both working in Wellington, New Zealand. The graduate known as Brent to family and friends, had his grandmother Erlinda Bautista witness the graduation ceremonies. Brent will be attending Ateneo De Manila University majoring in European Studies. He’s the only one to qualify for ADMU in the family so far. His father and uncles are either from U.P., UST or DLSU.

About three years ago (2008), after my dad’s birthday party I was able to bring Brent, his sister Nicole and cousin Alfonso to a meet and greet event with UFC legend Chuck Lidell. Brent has grown much taller now in his graduation pics compared to a couple of years ago. Alfonso Bautista has also recently graduated from elementary at Xavier School. He is the son of my brother Donald Bautista.

Chuck ‘The Ice Man’ Lidell in spite of being one of the fiercest knock out artists of the UFC, was so nice when he posed for pics with my nephews and niece. Thank you to Steven Tan, one of the top executives of SM Mall of Asia for helping us out.

When my mom was cleaning out her closet she found a box of old black and white pics. As a photographer today I was fascinated with them. One of the photos that I saw was Brent’s father Noel graduating from pre-school with eldest brother Tim holding his elementary diploma. I doubt very much if either of my brother have seen let alone remember these photos. For a more recent photo of Tim, Donald, my parents and Alfonso click here.

    OMG! Last time I saw Brent was about 12 years ago! He looks so much like Noel! I had a “moment” there just looking at that picture of Brent now! Wow! I can’t believe that much time had passed!

    Congratulations to Brent! Well done getting into ADMU! You ought to be proud of your achievement! Best wishes to you! xoxo
