Yesterday, my husband and I planned to bring the kids to Tiendesitas. But before going there, I asked him if we can drop by SM Megamall first because I have something to buy at Tobys. He said yes so there, we went to Megamall first. My husband remembered the ice skating rink so he said maybe we can try to go there and ask Emily if she wants to try it. When we get there, we found out that there is no more Ice Skating Rink there but a Stage where an audition for SM Little Star Talent search is going on.
Emily got so excited with the toys around, the clothes and the stage with big pictures of kids. She said she wants to join! So I was like, "are you sure you wanna join?" I even asked her a thousan times! And she answered me a thousand YES! So there I was the stage mother on the next level beside the very supportive daddy of all time. A 200 proof of purchase was required to register and since this is unplanned, we went ahead and looked for the dress she wants to wear. While daddy is paying for that dress I am still asking my daughter if she is really decided to join and my mind was panicking what is she gonna do there and how are we gonna prepare for it in about less than an hour!
Here are Emilys picture for whole body and half body by the way. Sorry if you feel like there is no make up. I am not good in putting make up to others faces. Now I am thinking on studying how to do that because cases like this might happen again every time we are outside with Emily. Anything can happen you know. This picture took 30 min before it was printed out so I left the studio and go ahead to find the nearest record bar to grab the CD of what shes gonna sing.
The first choice that she wants is a tagalog song from the TV soap "Mutya" I wasnt able to find it so I grabbed the 2nd song that I know she can sing. That is the song "True Colors" original by Cyndi Lauper but the one that she knows is the Glee version. I already uploaded one of her vid singing that song in youtube.
When we went back to the studio to claim her pic, there are other moms with their kids there as well. Lining up for their kids picture taken. As soon as we got her pictures we immediately went back to the recreation area and submitted the registration form with Emilys pictures. A birth certificate is also required but they gave me an email address to where to send it later.
After the registration, I retouched Emilys make up because she needs to be interviewed or some sort before the audition. They took some photos and video of her holding one of the sponsors product.
When we joined the other contestants I got nervous for my daughter. Most of them are so ready to dive in and show everyone what they got! Some even have their costumes! I saw one who is wearing a hawaian outfit and she danced pearly shell. Most of the other kids danced as well. Some using Lady Gaga others are Shakira. A couple kids act and several sang. I saw one kid who played the violin.
I noticed the moms of the other kids who were like dancing as well at the audience area and their kids on stage are looking at them. I was like "OMG! Am I gonna do that?!" I am not used to this kinds of exposure for my daughter. Well, I post her vids on youtube but... not in front of other people! You know what I mean!
Finally, my daughters name was called. I dont know what to feel! I am excited and nervous! Like I was the one called! So there we are, Daddy prepared the camera and I waved to my daughter making sure that she knows we are watching her. Here is the video of her performance:
I am so proud of her!!! As soon as she went down that stage, I went ahead and pick her up, there is this little boy ahead of me who stole a kiss from Emily! I was so shocked when this little boy kissed my daughter on her cheek!!! I was speechless!!! Caught by surprise I really dont know what to do. I just said HI! and Thank You to that little boy. Hahaha!
Oh btw, if you noticed the music, that is not a minus one CD. I cant find any. Until now as I searched for it in youtube. So I made a video showing the preparation before that audition on stage. Its like the backstage event prior to the show haha! I will definitely cherish this memory, My family date turned to a stressful audition for Emily! Hahaha!
For those who are asking if she won. I dont think so. You see, we left early. Maybe a few minutes after her song. Because we are tied up with a meeting with someone in Tiendesitas so we didnt find out if she won or not. Its not that I didnt care or whatever. If she did win I am sure they will call me or my husband for that. And since they dont, still, I know in my heart, Emily is definitely a winner!
I so love the courage coming out of my daughter. The confidence. I am still blank on what will she become when she grows up. Well, its still something to find out in the future. I am just supporting her on whatever she wants to do. That what we parents are here for our kids right?
Here is the preparation video. Like or comment of you like my shirt! Hahaha! Its from bloggershirt.com. See how busy the mommy of this girl is. Find Emilys Manny Pacquiao Pose! please post the time in the comment section as well! Enjoy!
