Two weeks ago, our choir joined the first Choral Competition sponsored by St. Mary’s Church here in Dubai.
We had to memorize 5 lines of lyrics in order have a winning edge over the competition. I tried to memorize all five lines but can only memorize up to 3.
I told Jane, my choirmate and is positioned across me, “Jane, saulo mo ‘di ba?”
“Oo. Memorized ko naman,” she answered.
“Pa-mouth maigi ng words ha? Kokopyahin ko buka ng bibig mo. ‘Di ko masyado saulo yung last part eh.”
“Ok,” She answered.
During the contest, I realized that Jane kinda forgot some of the words as she is also struggling to catch the lyrics.
After our performance, I kiddingly told my choirmates, “Di ako mali ng lyrics ah! Kay Jane ako nakadepende eh nalimutan n’ya so s’ya ang may sala.”
“Nalimutan ko kasi eh,” Jane answered on her defense.
Joking aside, our hardwork paid off as we were declared champion on the said competition.
