Kapuso, na-55 tayo!
55 years na tayong nag-aantay dito sa pila, di pa rin tayo pinapapasok!
-I ranted as fellow ka-puso na-55, ecspectators laugh.
Last Sunday, amidst the constant rain and jammed traffic, I managed to make my way to GMA 7's sine totoo in SM Megamall. I was so excited that day that I didn't care if my shoulders ache because of the jansport the clings on it. I was excited because I will be seeing Kara David.
Yes. It's about Kara. Although I'm quite bias to the kapuso station, the main factor that drove me to the event was to meet and greet one of their great anchors, Ms. Kara David.
I am a Kara David fan, if that's how you'd call it. I do admire her. Maybe it's her mesmerizing charm that excites me whenever I see her.
The three-hour queue was almost unforgivable, if not of the thought of seeing Kara in the flesh.
Anyway, the documentaries presented are worth watching. It helps bring back the fire of the dimming social awareness of individuals inside the theatre. Although I've already seen most of the docus presented, I'd say that it's better the second time around. You get the chance to see the bigger picture and you also get to understand some points you've missed before.
My pseudo-cousin friend nearly gets annoyed with me because of my so-much ranting about Kara David.
I did had the chance to meet and greet some of their reporters and anchors, (i.e. Sandra Aguinaldo, Arnold Clavio, Ivan Mayrina, Raffy Tima, Jay Taruc, and the others) but my goal is to meet Ms. Kara in the flesh.
I waited more. Patience pays.
But no Kara David steped out of the red carpet. I approached Mr. Raffy Tima and instantly asked him Ms. Kara's whereabouts.
He just smiled and said: Naku, sori. Wala siya ngayon eh. Di makakarating.
To exxagerate the story, my world stopped for about 2 seconds. Just two seconds.
What? She's not here again?!
Last year I went to see I-witness docu-festival in our campus to Have a picture of Ms Kara and me taken. Unfortunately, she's not present, but did have our pictuires with Ms. Maki Pulido.
And that's it.
Oh well, maybe those moments are just not right for Ms. Kara and I.
I know, someday, I'll have my chance.
Someday is not a farfetched reality.
why oh why Ms Kara, are you always missing?
Well. All I can do is continue on my musings.
Anyway, I don't care if I'll fail to see her 55 times.
Because I believe that in one way or another, our paths will cross.
