i didn't expect things would turn out like that. haha! i wasn't actually planning of taking part in huling papampam in this tour, but things just didn't go my way. haha! fuck tardiness, fuck oversleeping. haha!
we had a tour at abs-cbn with a chance to watch showtime. sounds great, right? it really was great! haha. the call time at school was originally 4:30 a.m. those who'd come by 5 a.m. would be left. sounds bad? really bad! haha!
well, my plan was to wake up by 3 a.m. so that at least i'd have enough time to prepare. sadly and horribly, i wasn't able to wake up on time according plan. i woke up by 5 a.m.!!! what the fuck was that?! haha! when my mom woke me up and told me what time it was, i didn't know what to do and how to start fixing myself. oh god! i checked the time and saw that it indeed was 5 a.m. already! i was panicking. i was soo mad of course. who wouldn't get mad for such a thing? haha. without second thoughts, i rushed to the bathroom and got myself cleaned. o heck. there were so many text messages asking where the hell i was and telling that they were about to leave in ten minutes. ten minutes?! fuck. i haven't left our home yet then and it usually takes 25 minutes for me to get to school, so how was i gonna be able to get there in just 10 freaking minutes?!! HOW?! haha! there were calls from liezette asking me if i could still make it. she was asking where i was already. haha! i was soo in a hurry. i didn't even manage to put powder or anything. i was only able put my earrings and perfume when i was already in the jeepney on my way to crossing. couldn't waste a jiffy. haha!
i met them at turbina. when i got in the bus, madam phlor and madam gerby were seated in front! haha! of course, they were mad and i understand very much why. haha! i apologized to everyone. it's the least i could do. haha. my classmates told me that they were all so worried about me. they said they were bothered that i might not make it. haha! well, i was so worried of myself too! haha! thank god i still made it! haha!
some of my classmates were asking what i would do if i wasn't able to make it. truth is i don't know. haha! we were all joking that i will just go to sleep again and not watch today's episode of showtime because i am bitter. haha! but no, i seriously don't know what i will do if ever it happens. maybe i will only know if it'll happen. i hope it won't. i wish it will never happen. haha!
during the whole day, we would always use the statement "wag maging kampante." haha! it's especially for me and for those who still have "atrasos." haha! whenever someone becomes happy, he/she will be told that statement which will eventually remind him/her of his/her "atrasos." poor kids. haha!
|camille, hanawoods, and ate dakka.|
|ri-ri na naka-aura na naman with camille! haha!|
|yvonne and roc.|
the tour was not that exciting anymore since it was our second time already. we went from one studio to another. there was this sir who guided us and shared things about abs-cbn and its studios and sets. hehe. then, it's SHOWTIME!!! haha.
|this is us before the tour begins. haha.|
|abs-cbn's sets of equipment hanging on their ceiling. haha!|
|dervs and okiy with madam ana manalastas. haha!|
|paul and alaga. haha!|
|mga kita sa tv o. haha!|
we were seated at the fifth or sixth row in front which meant that we were kinda near the stage. hehe. before the show started, there were entertainers who set the mood and taught us dance steps for the opening of the program. i am not a dancer! good thing the steps were cute and easy to follow except that they were too many. haha! found it hard to remember all of them. hahaha!
|the entertainers before showtime starts. haha!|
|yvonne habang naka-split together with the others na nagpasikat din sa sayawan. haha!|
when the show began, we were all energetic as we clapped, cheered, sang and danced along with the artists and other audiences. haha! more than anything, i was caught on cam. exposure, baby. hehe. i am such a camera shy but was not able to stop and cover myself before they could catch me on cam. o heck. those things made me conscious all the while. haha! everyone in the set was soo nice. and as usual, the studio is way, way smaller than you expected. their cameras are so updated that they have features that can magnify a thing for up to maybe 10 times. very tricky! hehe!
showtime was a blast from the beginning 'til its end. hehe. it's just that we were all so tired after because we clapped and cheered all throughout the show, plus those cameras that make us oh so conscious. our only chance to relax were during commercial breaks. very few of my classmates were able to take pictures with the artists.
after having our late lunch, we headed straight to the national printing office. they were holding their sports fest that's why some of their operations were temporarily stopped. but still, they were kind enough to let us tour around the printing office. hehe. the tour inside NPO was exhausting 'coz there were so many offices and floors. part of the exhaustion might also be because of the hangover at showtime. haha! they are the ones responsible for printing the ballots, birth and death certificates, and other receipts and papers that the government provides. on a personal note, i can say that the building is a true picture of a government-owned facility. lack of budget led to the current state of the building. maybe you'll only understand me once you get inside it too. you'll surely see what i mean. hehe. anyways, their people were accommodating and approachable. i thank them for that. hehe!
one of the highlights of the whole trip was when we were already at turbina where the two professors were already out of the bus. we all started singing the showtime theme song, then all of a sudden there was a commotion! we started pulling off paul's clothes, they all began to just hurt anyone near them and that's basically ME! i was tortured! haha! they pulled my hair, they all jumped and bumped me! haha! before i knew it, i was dead. there was also a cat fight between vyna and jamie. haha! we were already at lyceum when all the chaos ended. at least it ended without anyone rushed to a hospital. hahahaha!
the day was such a memorable one. haha!!!
