Circle of Life Lower

11822414_10206432478427431_1029797217636213623_nFermel and I share singing the solo parts of our choir’s rendition of Circle of Life.
Since he is back in the Philippines, I had to rehearse and try singing the full song alone — with the high parts.

During rehearsal yesterday, I was still able to hit the high notes.
The choir erupted in cheers.

After two more hours and on a different venue (we had to transfer from the church to The Fridge warehouse for our rehearsal) I cannot reach it anymore and my tones was stuck flat.
I was holding a microphone singing in front of the stage when Joy screamed, “Orlee, sa part ni Fermel ibaba mo lang.”
I was kinda nervous and had a sigh of relief when Joy said this, “Hay salamat. Octave lower,” I told myself

When I sang his part (octave lower) Joy screamed, “Yung mic lang ibaba mo. Hindi tono.”

Curious Mitch

“I’m always curious.”

That’s what Mitch answered, when I posted this candid photo of her on instagram with the caption: She likes touching the walls to feel the material. #architect #onlyarchitectsgetit #passion



To which Joy, our choir conductor, commented: Yan din ginawa nya sa choir loft kahapon. Nakita ko yun!

Anong Ginagawa Mo Dito

Joy was going to ask Janice what is she doing in a particular song (Soprano 1 or Soprano 2?), she instead blurted out, “Anong ginagawa mo dito?”
Everybody else screamed, “Anong gingawa mo dito? Lumayas ka!”
Followed up by, “Parang awa nyo na po…”

CVC @ 7: Chinese Themed

Last year we celebrated the first 6 years of CVC with the epic CosPlay Party. To celebrate the 7th, Atong, Liza, Rollie, Kay, Ella, Ron and I were tasked by the Council to set up a Chinese New Year-themed party.

Last night was a success. Here’s a collection of the pictures from the event.

Running joke of the evening: Massage Parlor employees.

Fermel: Jed Madela Chinese look-a-like

Glenn Babasa: Laurice Guillien

Thei and Fermel: Stars of the evening… Rosebud and the Dragon

Special Awardee: Joy and Erwin: Couple of the Night… Lutong Macau!

Kuya Arnold received a jacket. Arn said, “Tamang-tama! Mag-sa-summer na.”

Game 3: Ponkan Peeling Contest. No hands!

Kung Hei Fat Choi!  From CVC Year 7!

MD Joy Surprise Party

We prepared a surprise party for our Musical Director today at McDonald’s Sheik Zayed Road. I kept my iPod ready to capture the perfect reaction.

Here’s how it went down:

I wanted more! Seriously. Joy confessed that she held her tears as she doesn’t wanna embarrass herself. I told her after, “Alam mo, Joy? Mas maganda pa and reaction ni Atong at Arn arn kesa sa’yo eh.”
“Oh? Paano?” she asked.
“Nag-practice kami,” I told her and showed this video:

She was so touched. We’re happy that she had fun.

Face the Floor

“Bakit ka late?” Joy asked Sheryl.
“Sorry po!” She answered.
Instead of ‘face the wall’, Joy kiddingly told her, “No! Face the floor… Planking.”

Vertical Stripes

For last week’s choir uniform, it was decided that we’ll wear vertically striped-top.

Since Joy, the Musical Director didn’t have a vertically striped shirt, she has decided to wear her diagonally striped top.
“Eh wala akong vertical eh. Ganito na lang, ” she tilted her shoulders and acted as if conducting and said, “I-ko-conduct ko na lang kayo ng patabingi para naman maging veritical.”

One problem solved.

But we were all worried about Kay, who was wearing a horizontally striped shirt.
“Hihiga na lang s’ya habang kumakanta.”

“Bwisit talaga! Sabi ng officemate ko talaga pahiga ang vertical stripe!” Kay screamed frustratingly.
