Day 5 and I’m feeling a little better. I am thankful for my friends na talaga namang todo support. Pineda was just here yesterday with a milk tea for me. Janis dropped by for a bit this afternoon. Peachy was supposed to go here kanina. Inawat ko lang because I’m worrying mahirapan siya umuwi after. I am thankful also for all the messages that keep on coming. Hindi mo din talaga masasabi na kulang ako sa support system. Thank you very much girls. I feel very lucky I have people like you in my life.
To those of you na nangangamusta kay Mr. Sombrero, he’s okay. He’s doing better than I am. Hindi na kasi siya nagdwedwell like me. Wala naman daw kasing magagawa. I wish ganun din ako.
Anika is okay naman bilang wala siyang alam and it will stay that way.
She recently auditioned for a dance contest in school. We received a note 3 to 2 weeks back in her school diary from one of her teachers. Aralin daw some dance steps for the song HANDCLAP. They’re inviting her daw to audition. Yan daw ang magiging audition piece.
ME: Anika, do you want to audition for the dance contest?
ANIKA: Ang gusto ko talaga Nanay is yung singing contest eh.
ME: Anak, dito na lang muna tayo sa siguradong pasok ka ha? Napakagaling mong sumayaw. Sa singing, mag voice lessons pa tayo more.
ANIKA: Okay fine.
And so I googled the HandClap song and ito yun.
Inaral ko yan in 20 minutes and taught it to Anika for another 30 minutes. Nakuha naman ng bagets but not without mga snide comments from her and Alvin.
ME: Go, Anika. One more time! No mistakes this time.
ALVIN: Yung totoo Babe? Sino ang mag-aaudition?! Ikaw or si Anika.
ANIKA: Oo nga, Nanay! Mas feel na feel mo pa eh.
Feel na feel agad? Hindi ba pwedeng stage mother muna?!
Nagbunga naman ang pagiging mala-G-Force teacher ko because a few days afterwards, she happily told us that she got in the dance auditions.
I posted their actual dance piece in my Facebook page. Check niyo. Ang cute nila. They one third place. Ang magkalaban na grades is Grade 3 and 4 so sila lang ang Grade 3 na nanalo.
I was on bed rest so I wasn’t able to watch. Si Alvin na lang yung nagpunta. I was so happy for them when I watched the video. One of the mommies sent it to me. I will enroll her in dance lessons ulit. Sayang eh. May talent talaga siya.
Hiphop na hiphop.
She’s growing up so fast. I can’t keep up.
