Pony Show Off! Competition Winners
To continue my previous post (Pony Show Off! Exhibit Part 1), I’m happy to report that a few OPM artists graced the Pony “Show Off!” Exhibit and Awards Night with their presence. (May I digress for a second: I sound like I’m in gradeschool! Haha!)
Before the program started, Ramon Bautista and Nani Naguit, the hosts of the show, asked to have their picture taken with me… ha ha, kidding! They were more than happy to oblige me with a few photographs.
Kitchie Nadal and her band were there to perform a few songs. Kitchie’s blouse was gold and glittery and made me sooo green with envy! Actually, I have a gold see-through blouse which lies waiting in my closet for the perfect occasion. But, again, I digress.
I took pictures here and there while someone took pictures of me taking pictures. No, that was not meant to be a tongue twister.
And please bear with me while I post a few more pictures of myself. (This is my blog after all, eh?) No worries, I shall be announcing the winners soon!
Kitchie crooned onstage and asked everyone to sing along with her familiar songs. I knew them at one point in my life, but I confess to early-onset Alzheimer’s because I failed to recall the words! Ah, the opportunity to sing out loud has come and gone…
At one point, girls started to scream, making me wonder what on earth was going on. One look to my left and I found out that Bamboo and Champ Lui Pio have arrived. Ah, figures. Bamboo and Champ were there to present a few awards. Both were cute, I have to admit – and I loved how Champ seemed to be so nice to his fans.
Before I share how I got called to the stage, here are a few pictures of Ramon Bautista and Nani Naguit trying to get the better of a few good men onstage. And every guy they called was such a sport, making the impromptu contests a blast.
I ran into a few bloggers as well, including Jeman Villanueva of Orange Magazine TV. Picture, picture! Places, everyone!
Anyway, I got called to the stage that night! Not as a winner, unfortunately – after all, I didn’t join the contest. But Ramon called me up the stage to ask me about my email address (he has this theory that if a girl’s email address had the words “cutie” or “girl” in them, they’re probably ugly). Ha ha ha!
