[WIN TICKETS! Giveaway Alert] Trumpets Presents: The Horse and His Boy

I'm sure I'm not alone in this when I say that as a child, C.S. Lewis was my hero and I grew up as the biggest Chronicles of Narnia fan. So when news that Trumpets was going to have a stage adaptation of one of C.S. Lewis' classical pieces, the 10-year-old inside of me turned ecstatic.

Trumpets proudly takes us to an epic ride this November in an amazing theatrical spectacle, The Horse and His Boy. Unlike the other stories in the series, the Horse and His Boy doesn't focus on the Pevensies (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy), but on Shasta, a child on an exciting journey with a talking horse. Like most people, I remember having this particular book as one of my favorites among the seven, so I'm really, really excited to watch this come to life tomorrow night.

Here's great news, guys! We're giving away fifteen (15) tickets for tomorrow's 8PM show time. Which means we'll be having 5 winners who could bring 3 of their friends with them!

Rapunzel of TANGLED-themed Costume!

Say hi to Uriel aka Flynn Rider! 

Next to Belle, Rapunzel is my favorite Disney princess. I could relate to her character very much, because, well, duh, she's so gawky (!), awkward, childish, strong, and determined-- all at the same time. 

And that was why when UP Manila Dramatista, a theatre organization I joined in school just this semester, asked us to dress as Disney characters for a day, without even thinking twice, I decided to be Rapunzel.

(Below are some photos from the movie Tangled that I just got from the Internet)

Outfit details:

White blouse (used as inner top): Bayo

Purple skirt: an old purple dress that I just found in the closet

Pink corset: a random corset in our house lol

Flowers: borrowed from my bff, Ji! Which reminds me.... lol I haven't even returned this to her yet =)) HAHAHA hi Ji, if you're reading this, I love you. =)) I'll give this back to you next week.

Frying pan (choz! This pan is actually teflon lol #sosyal) : borrowed from Ji..again. =))

Nude flats: payless

We had to stay in character the WHOLE DAY, so imagine me running around school acting scared and holding a frying pan. Haha. 

My fellow applicants were amazing; they did such a great job in portraying their roles! Hands down! One person even went us a frog (from the movie "Princess and the Frog"), so he had to hop around the College of Arts and Sciences bending down.

Can you spot Hades? What about Captain Jack Sparrow? Snow White, anyone?

I just want us to be friends again, but that will never happen, won't it?

You're probably off somewhere hating on me, burning pictures of us together, cussing behind my back,
thinking how much of a worthless piece of crap I am.
Or maybe you just want me to evaporate, to disappear from your life forever.

Or maybe you just want to forget.

But you can't.

Cause you hate me.
Your heart burns with a deep and passionate hate for me.

And there's nothing I can ever do to make you forgive me.

Because I'm a monster- a heartless freak.
I'm mean.
I'm ruthless.
I'm a "worthless piece of shit", as you now call me to be.
But I'm not a cheat. I never was. And I don't know how I'd make you accept that; understand that.

I admit that I've done you wrong.
And I'm sorry.
And I hate myself for hurting you.
And it also hurts how you hurt me.
But it aches the most how one time, we meant the whole world to each other, but now we've grown so much apart.


Well, I did ask for this, didn't I?

I wanted

Don't get me wrong.
I'm having a great time learning, growing and discovering things by myself.

And actually, I'm happy with my life right now- with where I am and with the people I am with.

But you're not.
And that makes me unhappy.

Sometimes, I think I start to miss the little things.
How you lulled me to sleep at night over the phone, even though we both knew you didn't sing.
Or how you randomly knocked on my door and surprised me with flowers (and fries).
Or how you wrapped me with your sweater in class when the room temperature went on Antarctica mode.
Or how you told me I was beautiful every. Single. Day.

But then I realized that the one thing I miss most is how we were before:
the best of friends.

It's been months since we last talked.
And I'm trying to be okay with that.

I try.
And try.
But I fail.

And I'm sorry that I'm very happy, but you're not

and that makes me unhappy.
