THANK YOU!

27 08 2011

HINDI KO ALAM kung paano ito sisimulan. Susulatin ko ba ito sa wikang Filipino o gagamit ako ng Ingles para maunawaan ni James Soriano?

IT WAS JUST OVERWHELMING.


I wasn’t supposed to attend the Tatt Awards Friday night. I had a terrible headache. In fact, my doctor slash lawyer Raulito Lambino advised me to seek medical treatment abroad. I refused.

The electronic invite says the program was to start at 7 o’clock. I was still on the road at 7:20. It was payday. It was Friday. Perfect recipe for a monstrous Makati City traffic jam. We got stuck in traffic along Makati Avenue for like forever. Sadly, nobody informed us that traffic along that street was really bad. They should have put a sign or something, I don’t know. I should have been informed. Cigarette and sampaguita vendors just stared. It’s as if they were waiting for motorists to just do that – drive on a congested road. Dapat ininform nila ako. Inform! ‘Yon lang ‘yon eh.


The fact that the event was to be held at the Manila Peninsula escaped me. Otherwise, I would have just marched with Senator Trillanes and Ces Drilon towards the hotel. Iwas-traffic pa.

We arrived just in time for the program. With a smile on their faces, members of the hotel security greeted us, “Good evening sir. Good evening ma’am.” Wow, nag-English si manong. Learned.

Gang Badoy, yup, THE Gang Badoy presented the winner in the WordSlayer category. “And the Slayer is…,” Gang announced, “Loi Reyes Landicho!” Stunned. “Syet. Totoo pala ‘to. Winner nga ako.” To which the Alabang Boys said, “Kami rin!”

Winners were not allowed to deliver an acceptance speech. Sayang! I intended to joke pa naman about my lovelife in my speech.

Just to be sure, I had to verify the name on the envelope. Malay ko ba! Baka Ruffy Biazon pala ang nakasulat do’n ‘tapos sa media ko lang malalaman na siya pala ang winner. Ang sakit no’n ‘di ba?

For the first time, I met former ABS-CBN News Chief and former CNN Jakarta Bureau Chief Maria Ressa who was a member of the Tatt Council. I was awestruck. She was so down to earth. Mararamdaman mong interested siya sa sinasabi ng kausap niya. And for a moment, I thought, why kaya? Do I look like a terrorist?

Tim Yap co-hosted the event with socialite Divine Lee, daughter of Globe Asiatique’s Delfin Lee! I was so tempted to approach and ask her, “May boyfriend ka na? Kumusta ang PAGIBIG mo?

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to ask Tim if there’s truth to rumors that he’s been offered to host the PCSO’s lotto draw. Why not ‘di ba?

I was glad that the event was over before 10 o’clock. I was half unwell. Before the final act performed, I started to feel a stinging sensation in my neck. Hopefully, it’s not a pinched nerve.

After the win, my friend said, “Thank everyone who supported you. Hold a press con next week!” Ano ako? DOJ secretary?

Thank you Tatt Awards. Thank you Tatt Council (judges). Thank you supporters. Thank you virtual pals (Twitter, FB, Friendster, and blog). Thank you friends and co-workers. And of course, thanks to my family. WE won!

Espesyal na pasasalamat sa mga mamamahayag mula sa iba’t ibang pahayagan at himpilan ng radyo at telebisyon na pangunahing pinagkukunan ko ng impormasyong nagsisilbing basehan ng aking mga artikulo. Thank you guys!

Personal
Apologies to a group of people who requested an interview. It wasn’t my intention to ignore you. Hinila ako ng direktor ng event. Sisihin n’yo si @Loyva88!

It was great meeting some tweetpals: Maria Angelica Tulod of Bulacan, Ronnie Mia of Cavite, WhenInManila’s Paula De Los Reyes and Mark Pere Madrona of UP Diliman. The Azkals’ Jason Sabio who was seated right next to me during the Kobe Bryant event at the Big Dome tweeted that he was right behind me this time. Gusto na yata akong irecruit. To those people i met but whose names I cannot recall (I am not good at remembering names), apologies and thank you for the support.

Lastly, i was able to meet THE @chicogarcia in person. Si Delle na lang ang hindi pa.

To Coy Caballes of Globe and to the organizers, maraming salamat.

Fellow finalists and winners, congratulations!

Thank you all! Have a great long weekend!
