Neil G's embarassing moment

"i screwed up wyl hosting an awards nyt."

4 d 2nd tym in a row, d awarding ceremony of d ten outstanding students of region 7 was held in cebu. ds s lyk d oscars in d movie industry by d way. 2 those hu r familiar, i guess u know y. i made it as a finalist in 2003. anywyz, i didnt know y d organizers had 2 choose me 2 host d event d following year coz i know der wer a lot far better than me... i was hesitant coz i had only a few experiences in hosting and admittedly im nt gud at it yet... nonetheless, i accepted their inivitation thinkng it wud b a great exposure on my part.

d nyt finally came. maybe i was jst 2 tensed during dat nyt dat i didnt notice d venue was already filled wid guests... frm decs, ched, d organizers, d sponsors, skul administrators, parents of d awardees, d awardees, former awardees... every1! mas kinabahan ako tuloy... my co-host (a teacher, a former awardee herself and host 4 d past few years) had started entertaining and welcoming guests even b4 d program formally started. ang hirap tlaga maging host. ang daming pahabol na mga messages, names of persons u dont even know, may mga changes sa line up ng program. kng pwede lng sanang magbackout at kng di lng cguro ako nka designer barong, ginawa ko na...

i thot everthng was scripted pero hndi pala. i knew i shud hav prepared 4 ds. we had 2 do adlibs. kaya naman nang may pinasang question sa akin yung co-host ko duirng d welcome at d very start of the program.. bigla akong natulala... d question was about d award na di naman tlaga ako masyadong familiar wid ... so ganun nga ang nangyari... nagwelcome din ako sa mga guest para di masyadong halata na wla akong sagot at eto na... nagkwento na ako bout d award wen suddenly.....oh my god! NAG-BLOCKOUT AKO. doon ko lng nakita ang mga mukha ng mga guests na nakatingin sa amin sa stage. it was 30 SECONDS DEAD AIR. at kahit seconds lng yun, for me hours na yun. buti nlng sinalo ako ng co-host ko. hndi ako makapaniwala na nangyari yun. I WAS SO EMBARASSED. NAG-SHRINK TALAGA AKO. to think, it happend pa isang outstanding student awards nyt and in frnt of d guests pa hu i knew wer expectng more frm me being d host and former finalist...

parang nagstop bigla ang tym and everythng was in slow motion... and i was already imagining every1 laughng at me during dat moment gusto ko tlaga umiyak dat tym and maging invisible. GUSTO KO RING I-REWIND ANG NANGYARI PERO DI NA TLAGA PWEDE. hndi na ako naging comfortable throughout d program pero sabi nga nila... D SHOW MUST GO ON.

ang kulang ko lng cguro doon was dat i never prepared dat much 4 d event. nagrely ako masyado sa script. nakapaghost pa rin naman ako ng iba pang event after dat despite wat happend. at least nw, im improving. d greatest challenge nga di ba "IS NOT SUCCEEDING BUT RISING UP EVERYTIME U FALL". hehehe.
