In CIM, Year 2010 is the year for singers!

A good year for singers indeed for CIM.

December marked the return of the CIM choir who had their debut live performance during the CIM Alumni Day 2010 singing the liturgical songs during the Holy Mass, the Pambansang Awit, CIM Hymn and some intermission numbers.

See those smiling faces? That's because a lot in the audience liked their performance.

Well, the CIM choir has good reason also to be happy for one of their physician members is the 2010 Most Outstanding CIM Alumni Awardee (MOCA), the person who is also smiling in the picture, none other than Dr. Manuel Emerson Donaldo.

One of his colleagues promptly referred to him as, "A Doctor with A Song in His Heart".

He is known to have a golden singing voice on top of his other achievements as a rheumatologist, teacher, researcher and as the CIM Clinical Epidemiology Unit head.

He was handed the MOCA Award last Saturday, December 4 during the CIM Alumni Day celebrations.

(Hmmmmm....I'm also into singing...I'm also into research...I'm also into teaching.....Does this mean I'll be a MOCA in the future?Hahaha....Just kidding!)
