Starvoice 2014 at Active Fun in BGC

Last Saturday August 23, I was invited to attend an event at Active Fun in Bonifacio High Street Taguig for Starvoice 2014. I was quite giddy to know that I will be attending my first ever blogger event. Feeling ko kasi lumi -level up na aketch! Hahahah. Charot.

Along the way, I was so annoyed at myself for making the wrong decision of which way I will take going to BGC. The last time I went there was when I was 3-4 months pregnant with James along with a mommy friend of mine. I only have one route in mind however, it was really, really traffic. I was thinking not to attend anymore because it was past 4pm na but my inner blogger self wants to go. When I got to MRT Ayala Station, I found out the the bus shuttle wasn't there because of the road construction along the loop so I decided to ride a taxi. Good thing, there were taxis there who offers a ride for 4 going to BGC so I only paid 50 pesos. Hihi =)

When I reached Active Fun, I asked the guard as to where the event is being held. Oh Dear, I don't have any details of the event. Waaa!! I am losing my hope in going. I tried texting the contact person but she's not answering back.While waiting, I saw Kristine Hermosa with her kids and a Nanny going inside Active Fun. Na starstruck ako mga te!! hahaha. She was tall and pretty. I guess she's pregnant but I can't tell kasi I am focused on her face eh. Heheh. I decided to call the contact person again and she answered. I was headed to Upperground floor where the event is being held. By the way, I went alone because James was sick the day before eh. Pinagpahinga ko muna.

I approached a very accommodating staff as I am looking for the person that will accommodate us. I was asked "blogger po?" Kinabahan ako mga teng! I was hesitant to say yes because I don't consider myself as a blogger eh. This blog is like an online diary lang talaga although I am really glad to be invited on occasions like these. I was given a seat and handed a meal. I felt a little VIP ha?! Hehehe. I don't know if it was really like that talaga for bloggers. I just didn't like the seat we were given kasi there was this huge post na nakaharang so I kept on standing and going to the center so I could see the contestants.


Can you see where the guy in a gray top? Malaking poste yan. Yan ang kaharap ko while watching. Hayy..

Going back, since I arrived almost an hour late, I heard the last little division contestant singing "You'll gonna love me". Grabe!! Diba sobrang taas ng song na yun? Abot na abot ni bagets. Nawindang akong tunay!

Let the photo do the talking. Shall we? =)

It was the two Active Fun Mascot along with the dancers ala Bruno Mars
 
After which, another round of singing kids has started.This was for a different age bracket of kids (Junior Division) who joined Starvoice.


Would you believe that this kid sang "Let it Go"? Ang cool ng voice nya!!
This kid naman sang the "what the fox says" Ang galing din!!

These cupcakes caught my attention because they were seated right beside me. Hehehe! Drooling!
Gladys Reyes hosting the event. I don't know the name of the guy though.
I liked the cupcake but not the icing. Parang lasang margarine eh hehe. Too much butter siguro? I don't know. I like red velvet more kasi. =)
Gladys and her co-host sang "Bakit Ngayon ka lang?" while waiting for the judges to decide on the winner.
Then, the announcement of special awards followed.






The Starvoice 2014 Winner Junior Category

Contestants of Little Division
Unfortunately, my phone memory is full so I wasn't able to take anymore photos after the announcement of winners for Little Division. 

Judged by Ms Ana Liza Porto of Grand Videoke; Ms. Naths Everett of Repertory Philippines and; Mr. Jay Pangilinan of Repertory Philippines. Starvoice 2014 was indeed a great way to showcase our child's talent. I was so amazed with the contestant and surely, the judges had a hard time choosing the best among the best. I have watched some singing contest but this was so far the greatest I have attended. I swear, sobrang gagaling ng mga contestant. Nagsisi tuloy ako na hindi ko pinursue ang singing career ko when I was a kid. Hahahah. 

Also, one of the judges Mr. Jay Pangilinan sang. Ay grabe! It's as if I watched a live play in theater, si Lea Salonga na lang ang kulang, Miss Saigon na ang dating. It's like those from Disney movies ang peg!! Ang cool!! That's what Repertory Philippines is about eh. 

I waited until the event ended and heard the winners sang their winning piece again. The winner from Starvoice Junior Division had a future peg of Lea Salonga while the winner from Little Division is the future Beyonce Knowles. Ganon sila kagagaling!!

After the event, we said our goodbyes and took home these samples. Nag enjoy sa Goody Gulp si Daddy Daryl. Hahaha. Makasali nga sa giveaway nyan. =)



Thank you Active Fun and StarVoice for inviting us all. I surely had a blast! =)
