June 12 is the official Independence Day of the Philippines. It is considered as an important holiday for the Filipinos because it is the day wherein our ancestors finally had their freedom from the Spaniards. It also happened to be an important day for my second short film called The 12th of June. It has nothing to do with the history of the Philippine Independence, but errr… I consider it as a special day since it also falls on a Saturday this year.
Watching The 12th of June on the 12th of June, 2010
I first had my film showing at Mam Bebs in Davao City last year with the help of Avatar Media and had another one at Tomato Bomb. Some of my blogger friends were able to see Kuya Bunso and Positive. However, more friends were asking when I’ll be having the next screening. Since I wanted to host one so badly, I planned to have it on The 12th of June with no particular place or any other activity yet.
I first heard about Penpen’s Resto at Ping Medina’s Twitter account. The place happened to have Pasta Buffets on Tuesdays and the second floor is open for parties, film showing among others. I inquired through Ping Medina’s Facebook account and I’m glad that he replied. I then decided to have a Pasta Buffet Party + Film Showing there.
Now let me narrate everything that happened on my very own independence day:
Chloe The Hotlight Girl's Treat 😀
I woke up late and bombarded my friends with text message asking if they’d make it on the film showing. My college bestfriend arrived at home straight from her work then we went to Krispy Kreme Greenhills to pick up Chloe’s surprise. I was surprised when I found out she’ll give out 35 boxes of original-glazed donuts! The staff remembered that i shot some scenes of The 12th of June last July 2009 and they’re asking me when I’m going to shoot again LOL.
Hello, Krispy Kreme Lovers! Thank you once again for sending your entries for the second week of my Krispy Kreme Treats for Mommy contest. I received a few entries and the one photo that really captured my interest is the one sent by 8 year old Angelo delos Santos! Here’s the cute winning entry that really made me smile 🙂
This is one of my magical moments with my Mommy Suzanne and sister, Gwyneth, wherein my Mom prepared a surprise birthday party for me and little sis. It was really unexpected since we also had parties in our school. Our Mommy, is the BEST!
Congratulations Angelo! I bet one dozon of Krispy Kreme donuts will be a very good surprise treat for mommy and little sis! Your photo somewhat reminded me of my very own brother Carlo. Wait for my email and reply back ASAP so you can claim your surprise treat. Happy Krispy Kreme time! 😀
