For three days, I experienced for myself what a privilege it is to be serving the King of Kings. He changed lives right before my very eyes! I wanted to scream and cry and smile and fall down in awe all at once. People who were lost and hurting were given hope and a new life. I am extremely…
Ever since I’d been habituated to listen to classical music these days, I started to delve in to classical movies as well and decided to watch my old childhood cartoon movies which usually consist of music in different genres.
My first dig upon the transparent-cased CDs I have is a 1999 animated film adaptation of a stage play entitled The King and I. It was produced by one of my favorite film productions which is Warner Bros. Animation and Morgan Creek Production. I was around five (5) when I first watched it and fell in love with it. They produced quite a traditional music which I very much love mainly because it evolves around Siam, where Anne Leonowens changed the King of Siam’s thinking around the royal academy.
Next up is the very known Alice in Wonderland which was produced in 1521 by my favorite Walt Disney. When I was a kid I used to get scared with the weird-looking characters most especially the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar. Now I am drawn back to the movie and I couldn’t help recalling my funny reactions watching my childhood movie nine years ago!
Another animated film produced by Walt Disney is the popular nose-stretching-when-lying Pinnochio. I was actually touched of Mr. Geppetto's loving care to his wooden marionette boy. The classical music used as well within the whole story-line really gave me an awe.
The last broken case I stumbled upon to is my old 1998 Disney Renaissance animated film Mulan which was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation! Because this movie is going to be our stage play for this year, I thought of watching it again so I would know what part to audition. Truthfully, I fell in love with the commander Li Shang, silently cursing under my breath that I’d find a love story like this someday. Lea Salonga's singing voice of Mulan (as well as the following sequel, Mulan II and Princess Jasmine of Aladdin) really made me want to salute her for making me so proud to be a Filipino!
Being the one who can’t really get enough, I vowed to have another batch of movie marathon yet again this following weekend so I’d be reminded that living in my childhood could indeed be boundless!
(The only living picture from 2010’s Mamma Mia stage play!)
Apparently, our school will hold an audition for this year’s musical stage play entitled Mulan (yes, my number one reason for joining is because it’s Disney!) and I decided to give it a try this time again. For two consecutive years I’d auditioned for this annual stage play and it’s undeniable that the arduous rehearsals everyday and after classes usually takes in some energy for all of us. And in those two consecutive years as well I was sorted into the singers, which I constantly audition to be part of, and to the point that I don’t really mind at all (in fact, I like it very much!). Only last year I wasn’t able to continue my endeavor because of my hectic schedule and a conflict for rehearsals in a school presentation.
The scheduled dates are this coming September 1, 2011 for Main Casts, September 2, 2011 for Singers, and September 5, 2011 for Dancers. My mind is still boggling if I should really go for main cast (because everybody has been nagging me to play a part in the play) this upcoming Thursday, but I’m a hundred percent sure that I’d audition for the singer’s part.
Then again, I realized how time flies by so fast to be approaching in this kind of activity already. Looking back more than two months ago, I realized that indeed, time flies by so fast when you’re having so much fun. And I wouldn’t miss a chance in meeting new friends this time! ♥
Although the day for us CAT officers started rather painful for us because of some section’s accusation on us, and me having an H-fever, I still managed to have some fun during our Pista sa Nayon and also during the highlight of the day which was the Buwan ng Wika 2011 wherein different contests were held in different categories.
You’re so demanding you’re becoming much worse than my mother when here I am trying to help you very much for you to perform your song tomorrow. You should still be thankful rather than mouthing words that aren’t even considerable to me first. Just because you’re kind of the queen in the school doesn’t mean you need to shout to your best friend just like that. I’m no idiot. And I’m no maid you could tell what to do. I have my own genius mind and for the nth time I’m telling you I have a brain.
Please just say the fact that you started this furious thing between us. You’ve been stupid enough. Everybody says so, too.
August 20, 2011: A day of celebration of Zildrac’s birthday! x
Last Saturday, due to excessive works around the house, I wasn’t able to blog about the momentous event (or, let’s say, just a small party in the beach) that I spent with my friends. We had a good lots of fun even though the whole section didn’t come up with our meet (I still feel way sad not to see them there!).
In the morning, the 2nd Lieutenant CAT officers (including me) were anxious to get away with our formation because we definitely had to go to the beach to meet up with my classmates. It was raining hard, there was doubt in me if we were indeed going. When noon came, though, I wasn’t surprised they pushed through with their plans because they’d already made mango floats for our dessert. Yummm! *u*
We had two Lieutenant Colonels who came with us, who were both coincidentally former Maroonians! Our birthday celebrante conceded to let them hang out with us, which we don’t mind at all.
I’m one of the boys! Kidding there. We were only three girls that time. :(

Hmm, the story-line is still in the process of making in my mind, but what’s at the top of my head are probably romance, fantasy, and comedy (maybe a bit, I don’t really know how to do this of thing). I may add more later on as the story develops.
Please don’t hesitate to drop suggestions! My ask box is very open to all, registered users and anonymous, so please do drop by! It would help me with my story very much.
So my Dad woke me up early in the morning to finish my five-page short story project, and I was yet to fix my beds and have my breakfast. Unfortunately, I can’t really come up a good storyline for my short story so I decided to catch my own motivation first.
I’m starting my draft for the first page, and so far, I’d let my creative juices flowing down. I hope I could make this until this afternoon so I’d gradually start on all my pending projects. I’m heading over to the conclusion that this upcoming week would be very, very busy after all.
