Last April 8 (Friday), nasa art exhibit ako sa DLS-CSB SDA… ♫ all…by…myself…♫ At dahil mag-isa akong pumunta, sinubukan kong maghanap ng makakasama pero I realized everyone I wanted to invite were so busy (malapit na kasi nun ang Finals Week ng APC). And I had to confirm the exhibit from my college professor and friend of mine, Ms Bea. Habang ako ay nasa building na at nagmimilipit sa hiya (wala kasi akong kakilala dun kaya shy type ang drama ng inyong abang lingkod), tinext ko si Ms Bea kung may exhibit ba talaga sa SDA. Knowing that she served as college instructor at CSB, I was hoping that she was also there. Baka ininvite rin siya ng friends niya who were also teaching there. Pero she told me that I must ask Ate Cris Dumlao. Kaya napagtanto ko na hindi niya alam and hindi siya pumunta.
I had no one to talk to kaya I just texted her again about what I was feeling at that moment. Nagreply siya pero tipid :D. I was wondering kung bakit (pero alam kong ganoon naman talaga si Miss, she’s not into texting, I suppose). Inisip ko busy siya. Kaya I decided to take some bravery and roam the winding corridor of the 10th floor of SDA where the exhibit was taking place.
The next day, I found out that she won an award from the 12th Philippine Web Awards. Kaya pala hindi na nagreply sa text ko haha! As far as I can remember, she already mentioned in her blog a month ago that one of her sites, Otaku Fridge, made it to the semifinals of the seemed-to-be-like-the-Academy Awards of the Philippine cyberspace. And after surges of outpouring support from her colleagues, friends, family, relatives, and students (ehem, kasali ako), her entry finally made it. I’m super happy! 🙂
For her story about her winning the award for best website (blog category), click here.
I was able to saw a video clip (but I can’t upload it here) during when she accepted the award and gave a speech. That was the shortest speech I’ve ever heard. Haha! Bilang sa daliri ko sa kamay + daliri sa paa ang mga salita niya :D. And ang suot… naka jeans! Tinaob ang mga nakabarong at terno gowns sa venue! Haha!
Congratulations, Ms Bea! You deserve the award. Finally, you got it after trials and nominations. Honestly, kung hindi dahil sa inyo, hindi ko susubukang mag-blog (hindi ako magaling magsulat, sa totoo lang). I remember when you handled us (your first batch at APC), you encouraged us to have a Multiply account. At first, di ko trip yung blogging pero through the years, I got hooked. Now, I made this WordPress account in honor of you (NAKS). And I’m sure hindi lang ako kundi marami din ang naiinspire magblog because of you :). I hope that next time, yung Skysenshi.com naman ang isali mo :). God bless you and keep on inspiring us through your blogs. Mabuhay ♥ (okie, ang bakla ng heart hahaha!)
Hot like Mexico, rejoice!
