September 13 was supposed to be just another typical work day. Clocked in right on time (yay!) and dragged my sleepy ass to my cube only to find out that there's a crowd in front of our TV area, all giddy and cheering like crazy. In my head I was like...it's not the Oscars today, right? Hahaha, lagot ako if it was the Oscars and I didn't know about it! For those who are clueless, I work in a Hollywood magazine, so Oscars is some kinda our version of Christmas.
So anyway, of course it was the Miss Universe pageant and we're actually winning, which explains why everyone was glued on the screen. And I mean everyone, even the guys! The energy was so palpable, and because of that fan meter thingie going up and down on the screen, the whole office was roaring! Something like this:
Host: Ms. China!
Office crowd: Down down down! Yay, ang baba!
Host: Ms. Philippines!
Office crowd: Woooo! Up up up up up... YAYYY!!!
Host: Ms. Angola!
Office crowd: DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN... ayyyy, daya!
Bwahahahaha. Napaka-competitive ng audience! When the contestants were down to 5, I just knew I had to record this moment.
