Dumating kami dun tapos na ang lunch and siesta nila, and the next batch of games were about to start already.
Kaya gustuhin ko man gumawa ng detailed write-up about the grand event that took place yesterday, December 14th somewhere in Laguna, I obviously can't.
Highlights na lang siguro...
The planning... Grabe lungs ang pagplano sa event na ito. Though, I'm not part of the team that conceptualized this big event, I could see na puspusan talaga sila sa pagbuo ng Christmas Party for PLHIV. Plantsado at pulido. Three thumbs up!
The food... Friend kita JR so I don't know how you are going to take this compliment. But yes, the festive food was awesome!
Again, hindi ako food critic. And whenever I eat, I just basically munch up anything that's on my plate. All I know is that foods are either good or bad. And yesterday's menu was good!
The games... Hindi ko inabot yung mga games nung umaga kasi nga I was late. Ang inabot ko na lang were the games in the afternoon. Still, it was fun.
I joined District 4. And my district was as competitive as the others. Karir kung karir din naman talaga.
Pass the message - Kaloka, ang Darna naging Booba! Ang Queso de Bola naging pizza. X-Men's Storm became the Flash. Just imagine how did it happen. Go figure!
Quiz Bee - Unang tanong pa lang, difficult level na agad? Walang nakasagot. Ano nga ba kasi ang gossamer? Ano na nga ba ang apiary? Dinugo utak ko dun.
Longest Line - Hala sige, hubad na kung hubad, mapahaba lang yung line. Pati sigarilyo isama sa line. :D Balita ko may nahulog pa daw na cellphones sa pool?
Pabitin - Sa 7-feet deep na pool? Buwis buhay nga naman. Nagkaalaman kung sino sa mga pusit ang hindi marunong lumangoy.The pageant... Mga gandang di mo inakala. Labas na labas ang creativity ng mga beks! Syempre hindi nawala ang curtain/bedsheet-turned-long gowns. Hindi pinatawad ang decorations sa venue. May gumamit pa ng mattress magballoon lang ang gown. May namitas pa ng mga dahon dahon. (Later on I found out hindi pala totoo yun mga dahon.) And of course, hindi rin nawala ang mga skimpy underwears. Lol!
Bukod sa pagalingan sumagot ng mga kandidata sa Question and Answer portion, nagpakabugan din ang audience sa pagtanong sa mga candidates. May Miss Universe 1969 inspired question pa:
Judge: In the next day or so, a man will land on the moon. If a man from the moon landed in your hometown, what would you do to entertain him?
Gloria Diaz: Oh, just the same things I do. I think if he has been on the moon for so long, I think when he comes over he wants to change, I guess.
Miss District 5 contestant: (Nakalimutan ko na sagot niya sa sobrang haba!)Pak na pak!
In the end, only one pair among the 5 pairs of.. er gorgeous and lovely candidates emerged as the winners of Mr and Miss Twitterlandia. Congratulations to the representatives from District 5! #proudboyfriend ;)
First runner up naman ang District ko. Congratulations din sa inyong dalawa! :D
The tribute... The event wasn't for pure fun. We also paid tribute to our dear friends who have gone to meet the Creator. It was emotional. Who wouldn't be when you've lost someone who's close to you.
Feel na feel ko pa nga ang pagkanta ng "Power of Your Love" habang nakataas right hand ko.
Sabay pang bumuhos yung malakas na ulan. Pati ang langit, nakikiisa sa aming pagdadalamhati.
Then after the song, biglang "Your score: 95! You're ready to be a great singer!" Medyo panira lang ng moment.
And yung inspirational talk from PP. Your story is truly an inspiration. (Redundant!)
The free time... Ayy! Ewan ko na kung ano nangyari after ng pageant and the tribute. Kanya kanya na. Meds time, tulugan, swimming, chikahan, inuman... awrahan? Charot!
We're all in this together.
New found friends.
Old virtual friends na ngayon ko lang nakita for the first time.
"Ano twitter handle mo? Ahh, ikaw pala yun..." sounds familiar?
Really, nakakatuwang isipin na who would have thought that it's our condition pa that would bind us all together that day.
Overall, the event was a big success! This event would not have been possible if it weren't for the passionate and very fab organizers (bola much na.. hahaha!). Kudos sa inyong lahat. Ang galing! :D
Applause! Applause! Applause!
So what's the next big thing na dapat abangan sa Twitterlandia?
Hmm.. A good reason to keep healthy and stay alive. Lol! Pwede!
