Dr. Marilen Parungao Balolong (1974-2022)

We are deeply saddened to have lost the core of our office. To our AD Lhen, the literal beauty and brain of our team, just listing the things you do with the office, as a professor, a university scientist, among many others, is already tiring. But is “tired” even in your vocabulary? We always see you smiling brightly, leading and guiding us to the next steps the office will take.

We always wonder how you do it. You are the epitome of “babaeng walang pahinga.” yet you always give your best in everything you do. Even if we have to drag our feet, we would still move forward and make true the plans you envisioned for our office.

Rest in power to one of the brightest person in the whole world, who never failed to reach great heights in serving the community. Our beautiful AD Lhen, your brightness will never be dimmed.
