Not to make this post long, just want to give you a recap on how I spent the last day of July. I was supposed spend the day at home resting but I had a shoot scheduled today so Sunday became a working day for me. (just today!) So ayun na nga, I had to be up early for my 10am call time at the Carillo’s house for a TVC shoot (Our home in My Bebe Love!) It was very unusual for me to work for a TVC shoot on a Sunday, also during daytime because I usually do them after Eat Bulaga so I am used to shooting at dusk and finishing at dawn. Anyway, while having myself dolled up for the actual shoot, I thought about Selena Gomez’s concert tonight. Considering the fact that I LOVE Selena, I really didn’t plan on watching her concert for some reason. Anyway, a part of me suddenly felt the need to see her. It was around 2 in the afternoon when I decided that I want to watch her concert so I immediately asked Kuya Mike (my handler) and Ate Pat if they could get tickets for the show tonight. I said I wouldn’t mind being seated anywhere the arena for as long as I get to witness her perform live– I could be at the General Admission section, keri lang. I think it was at around 5 in the afternoon when they told me that they already found tickets. Thank goodness! We finished the shoot at 9 then rushed to Mall of Asia arena straight away to catch the show. Selena was already performing when we got there but I am glad that we made it!
Selena Gomez. Breathing the same air as me. Wow.
Wizards of Waverly Place was my favorite show as a teen. I was thirteen when I first catch sight of you on TV, and I swear watching your show every single day was one of my best “childhood memories”. I have memorized some of your best lines in the show! (I remember jotting them down on a notebook that I still keep inside my closet. Haha!) It was the witty witch who captured my heart at first but I have gotten to know the person behind Alex Russo. Turns out she wasn’t just a “witty witch”– she was something else. And there is this one thing that both Alex and Selena have been fortunately endowed with– MAGIC.
You’ve got the magic in you, Selena. You are one amazing person. You inspire me in so many ways and you have been an inspiration to a lot of people all over the world for being so real and keeping it that way come what may. You set a great example to the youth. You are one of the people I look up to; perhaps because I kind of see myself in you. You are an incredible person and it is your pure heart that made your gazillions of fans adore and love you. You are a beautiful being and a strong woman, Selena. I may not have followed your journey since the beginning but you have always been and will always be an inspiration to me as I go along my own journey.
I may not have seen you up close tonight but it was really nice seeing you perform live. Again, you are amazing. I would love to meet you (#ImeanIcould if I only had things prepared ahead of time) but I don’t think I am emotionally and spiritually primed to face you. Baka bumula ang bibig ko kapag nasa harap na kita. Admiring you from a far was enough. You were so great on your show tonight and I am really happy that I got to see you. Continue inspiring people and keep slaying, Selena. I love you from the bottom of my heart. Hope to see you again soon– sa tamang panahon.
one of your lowkey fans.
I hope you guys had a great week and a great month as well. Happy August 1st, everybody!
