- Friends, nandito ako, so manood kayo! :) -

The New Voice Company, Asia's Pioneering Theatre Company, will be staging its 2008 Musical Theatre Workshop Showcase, EKSENA'T KANTA (Scenes & Songs), on June 1, 2008, 12 Noon, at the RCBC Theatre (RCBC Tower, Ayala Avenue, Makati City).

The showcase, directed by two of Philippine and International Theatre's most celebrated actors and directors, Rito Asilo and Monique Wilson, features the talents of the 2008 NVC Workshop Students. The show will also include the special participation of noted NVC alumni, such as acclaimed Philippine Theatre and Television actress, Missy Maramara.

Plus, it features ME! And I'm worth more than the price of admission. Hehe. :) Panira, ano?

The New Voice Company has always been known to produce shows of the highest standard possible, this showcase is no exception. (I'm not one to lie, and I'm telling you, its going to be a great show!)

Tickets are at P150, and you can call 8966695 / 8965497 / 8990630   or visit the site (http://newvoicecompany.com) for reservations & other details. I'm sure you can also buy tickets on the day itself, but you have to be quick, because these things have been known to run out. :)

For those who can stay 'til 7 PM, some of us from the workshop will also be performing in NVC's V-DAY: back-to-back performances of A MEMORY, A MONOLOGUE, A RANT
and THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES. This will also be on June 1 at the RCBC Theatre.

The stellar cast features Philippine Theatre's finest - Bart Guingona, Michael Williams, and Monique Wilson, just to name a few. You can visit the site for the complete cast and other show information. All V-Day Manila Events benefit the Lila Filipina Comfort Women group.

What better way to kick-off June than to partake of NVC's season offerings?

See you there!

It's been that way for a long time now. 

Half a year?



Whattaword. I feel the power.

Thank God for summer. I can finally get back to watching my films.

Talk about counting your eggs. I haven't even finished with all my requirements yet.

Anyway, I've also been drowning in Meteor Garden these past few days. First on my hitlist has always been those traitors who denounced the show the minute it turned jologs. The very same people who were moderating the Meteor Garden Philippines forum and brandishing their Make A Wish albums during the height of F4's popularity.

Nearly 5 years laters, I still miss Dao Ming Sz. :( If he smiled at me like that....


In other news,

March 19 was a tremendously spectacular day. What a way to end classes:

  • Geografilm 2008: Our film, Dokyu (which I wrote, directed, edited, acted in blah blah...o siya, magbuhat na ng sariling bangko won Best Short Film (Suspense), Best Technicals, Best Original Story, and Overall Best Short Film! I also won Best Actress and Best Director Kamusta ka naman? I, however, was not there to reap the benefits (certificates and panlilibre ni sir sa group namin), because I was over at the -
  • PE2 Sport Climbing Interclass Competition: Our team, Papables (I was team captain, hence, the name. Thank you, Cake) won first place! after a short awarding "Wait! Ibalik niyo medals niyo. Mali computation!" scandal. My new CHK medal is made of shiny, wow-ngayon-ko-lang-napansin-na-C-H-K-pala-yung-hugis-nung-tao-sa-CHK-logo pseudo-gold win.
  • Submitted my Portfolio for Film 110. Wala lang. It's a nice feeling, after the yellow-nails-crammed-darkroon-shit that was the day before.
  • And: Something else. Very nice.

    I lost something, though I didn't even notice.

And now, I have the Photo Exhibit on Wednesday and the Summer Musical theatre workshops. To cap it off, namumunga na ang punong Makopa namin!

P.S. Moves I wish I could do in real life, but let's face it, I cant -

The Evita - poised on the balcony, suddenly raising your arms to the cheers of your adoring subjects. Fran Drescher did it in The Beautician And The Beast, Ai-Ai did it in Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo, can't I do it? Probably only if I was the dictator of a latin american country.

Running to a church, raising a person over my head while yelling, "Sanctuary!"
Wait, I actually have done that in Church several times. That explains a lot....

And finally, Stage Diving. *sigh* Only if I were a Rock Star....

Looks like summer's going to be just as shitty as last sem. 

ETA: My head feels so light. Maybe I'll float away, like in all the Shel Silverstein books.

Heath Ledger is dead.

They found him in a NYC apartment, in the bed, naked, with sleeping pills at his side.

They found his body a little over 4 hours ago, the story went to the presses a little under an hour ago.

He was 28. He had a daughter.

I can't believe he's dead. They still haven't confirmed suicide, and I refuse to believe he went out like that. It's so weird that his movie career suddenly flashed before my eyes - the awkwardly-brunette bully in 10 Things, the innocent, idealistic son who got killed in The Patriot (seeing him in colonial garb made me think he'd be a perfect Teddy in a Little Women remake), and geeky grin in A Knight's Tale.

That smile. He was just a kid. There were supposed to be more movies....

Hay. Wala nang Brokeback....

I just realized...

I don't have enough time to prepare for my prod.



I now associate Bob Marley's 3 Little Birds with a dog dying.

Damn you, I Am Legend!

Is it so obvious that I'm trying to delay preparing for my prod?

From sigarilyo

Comment with a "hey, sup" and I'll:
1. tell you why I friended you.
2. associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.
3. tell you something i like about you.
4. tell you a memory i have of you.
5. ask something i've always wanted to know about you.
6. tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. in return, you must post this in your lj--but only if you want.

Damn you, Jack TV. It's bad enough you went over to the dark side switched to Destiny, Did you have to take all the good shows like SNL and Late Night With Conan O'Brien with you?

I remember, the only thing on everybody's y!m lips when the New Year came was:

Alam mo ba kung nasan ang Jack TV?

It's gone. That, plus Velvet and the cancellation of Rated Oh and subsequent search for the new face of ETC (Oh noes! It's Sib all over again!) makes 2008, and possibly all years thereafter, not a good time for TV.

Good thing we still have Marc/Rovilson and Terri/Henry drama on The Amazing Race Asia. It's the only thing worth watching nowadays.

My brother asked why the teams are always asked to do such menial challenges instead of ones that truly show the nation's culture. Heck, instead of delivering supplies from a Caltex Station or assembling a bike while they were in the Philippines, dapat pinag-deliver sila ng Lechon (yung buo pa na nakatuhog sa kawayan) habang nagbibisikleta, o di kaya pinagdeliver ng kama na nakapasan sa likod nila.

That's Filipino.

ETA: Seriously, what the hell am I supposed to watch on Saturday nights? My Boys?? Screw you, Skycable.

Went back to Basic Account. Realized those ugly ads were really stressing me out.

I'm trying to simplify my life.

I Cheated At The Vanilla Ghost House.


In other news:

  • The family and I went to the Tiangge at Lung Center, the single biggest and most amazing bazaar we've been going to for, what, 3 years? We're suki of the Food Trip at Lung Center, and I got full-to-queasy just on the Free Samples. Am presently hitting myself over the head for not getting the names of the stores and making a review.

  • Rikka, TCo, and Jenin came over yesterday to rehearse for our SFX prod. We didn't accomplish a lot, actually ended up backtracking (which happens increasing often in our meetings) and singing Lion King songs on the karaoke mics.

  • Sheryl Cruz just moved into the new house at the back of ours.

  • Meteor Garden marathon late last night. Di ko ma-take, ang pogi ni Dao Ming Si! AAAYY!!! BTW, F4 is making a comeback. They just released a new album, and their latest song, "Waiting For You" is already on Youtube, and I daresay I really like it.

    All the guys with short do's - Vanness with Tropicana hair!

I noticed that, similar to Hitler's Nazis, hoardes of people later denied ever affiliating with the F4 fandom. However, like the Holocaust, we cannot deny its existence and the enormous impact of the phenomenon that enveloped all of us (and our hairstyles).

I don't care if they're laos. I'm not ashamed to say that I AM AN F4 FAN and I will watch them if they stage a concert in the Philippines.

And yes, I did buy Vanness' album back when the F4 Fever was still raging!

Hwooh. That was liberating.
