For the longest time, Tim and my friends have been convincing me to join TV. I love watching TV and I admire the hard work that artists put into each show, movie, performance at iba iba pa. As a bystander, I saw how V wakes up so early to go to tapings, and the long hours he puts into it- nakakabilib talaga. The key is all about PASSION.

So when I got offered to do shows before, I didn’t accept, not because hindi ko type but because i have to feel deeply passionate about something. I never start something only to quit in the middle. Same with this blog, d ba? napakaupdated. HELLO! I lose sleep na kasi demanding kayo! haha! jk 🙂 But I love how this blog became a venue and stage for everyone. And I’m willing na kareerin to as long as we can inspire more people to attack life FULL FORCE with a smile on your face!

During my whole panic mode on the recent Japan tsunamis and earthquakes. I felt so helpless. Yes, nakapagdonate ako sa redcross through texting and I even wrote a letter but I really felt kulang pa. When Ondoy happened, I had the ability to get up and do something but I felt helpless with Japan. I prayed hard and told God. “Hello God, d ko forte tong feeling na itich. Pwede bigyan mo ako ng bonggang pwedeng gawin to help? Expertise ko po yang construction pero wala naman ako magawa. And I’m sure masmagaling sila sakin sa JAPAN but I wanna do something. God, avail nyo naman yung tinuro nyo sakin. Baka ma-panis if hindi ko magamit sa mabuti.” I am always thankful for all the experiences and talents (may S talaga, marami eh… choz!) God gave me and as much as possible dapat magamit sya to help others. Believe it or not, mabilis talaga si God. I left my twitter open so hindi ko napansin that i had a direct message. So pwedeng bago ko pa hinigi, binigay nya na. Anyways, to cut the long story short. I was invited to do a screentest for EXTREME MAKEOVER HOME EDITION. First reaction ko was shock… “Ako? eh the same person who invited me to do a screentest invited me before and no appearance ako. Buti nalang naisip pa nya ako ulit”. Then next was excitement. “OMG! Extreme makeover! Gosh, lahat ng episode na pinanood ko umiyak ako. I remember even asking myself before.. sana may magawa akong ganyan! Ang saya siguro ng feeling”. Then next was a little fear “SHUCKS! Finally something that I really wanna do but…. BAKA HINDI AKO MAKUHAAAA!” – Take note lahat yang emotions in a span of 5 minutes. You know guys, when you feel that much emotions, you know the situation means something to you. Kaya alam ko na, sinagot ni God yung hinihingi ko but kahit si God hindi lahat libre. Work dapat. So during my screentest, hindi ako umarte and say na “Oh, I’ll see chuchu..” I told them, I really want this show. I want to be part of helping rebuild homes and rebuild lives. I was so nervous during the screen test but everyone in TV5 made it so casual and friendly that after awhile I forgot that the camera was there. Nagpaturo pa sila ng BECKIMESE. So bongga! Alam nila ang turf ko. haha!

Weeks after I got it! I got a text that the DESIGN TEAM has a meeting daw! Gosh! I did it! DESIGN TEAM! KABOWG! I was actually in the TV5 office early (first one for the meeting) and saw a group of people waiting. Hindi ako makatiis, I thought they were the family we were gonna help. When i went to the toilet- tinanong ko talaga anong ganap nila. I asked them, “Ate, sa meeting po ba kayo? (didn’t diclose anything baka ako pa sanhi ng leakage! haha!) so when they said no. Medyo I had to hold myself back. Ready na akong yumakap eh! haha!

So here it is guys! We will start shooting na! I’m so excited! I love how the design team, host, executives and staff of TV5 allowed us to voice our opinion about the candidates and all. TEAM EFFORT SYA. And with that being said… For sure, madami kaming matutulungan. You should see the devotion of the people there. Lahat may opinion and that means a lot because it means that WE care about who gets picked.

I really hope you exert the same effort to support this as how you supported this blog. Maraming Salamat!
