Grateful for the opportunity to work with colleagues from the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts (DSCTA). Coincidentally, we are all former fellows of the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship at the Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Lahat din kami fan ng bakuna. Akalain mo yun?

Salamat, Oscar Tantoco Serquiña for leading this panel! Salamat din, Charles Erize Ladia and Junesse Crisostomo sa comments, tawanan, cramming, chikahan, at health tips. Buy 1 take 3 po kami sa publication sana. Sana rin magtuluy-tuloy at lumaki pa ang ganitong writing group sa department.

Mapagpalayang pag-ibig sa inyong lahat sa 11 June, Friday, 8pm sa Ampalaya Monologues.

MananangGAL GADOT (MPAU)

I commissioned artist Malayo Pa Ang Umaga (fan niya ko dati pa!) to interpret MananangGAL GADOT, the resident mananaggal acting titser and MonoVlogger in Kumu. Di ba pag sa Zoom mukha tayo lahat manananggal performers? Ito yung character na nagtuturo kung paano gamitin ang buong body online. Grabe yung detalye ng bituka, monoVlogger talaga. Si Alejandro (bungo) ay may special appearance din. Hahaha. Ang manager ko po sa Kumu ay si Dr. Layeta Pinzon Bucoy. Gusto ko lang banggitin kasi siya talaga nagturo sakin. Paki tag si Sir Budjette, baka naman pwede isama sa Trese. Nahihiya akong i-tag siya kahit FB friends kami. Haha. Paki tag din si Gal Gadot.

Levitate!

Sa episode 9 ng Ang Paglalakbay ni Madam Tseter sa Kumuniverse ay pasan ni Madam ang buong daigdig kaya’t nagpatulong siya sa kanyang Levitate! Guru (@ericvdelacruz) para palutangin ang kanyang worries, duda, social climbers, bashers, at kung anu-ano pang nagpapabigat sa kanya. Maghanda para sa isang sensorial path to levitation!
