My eyes were stingy and bloodshot. My head was still spinning from the 7-hour bus ride that began at 4AM that day. All I could remember was I stood up, shook hands along the way and waited for the cue on where to stand. Posed for the camera. Got the trophy, took the podium and delivered an impromptu speech!
The fatigue and social anxiety were elements of a disaster. What should I say? I almost had a panic attack. I came to Silay and Bacolod with a venturesome spirit and without any expectation to bring home the trophy at all. All I ever wanted was to join the complimentary guided tour around Silay, meet the blogging community for the first time and somehow, put faces behind blog names and eventually have a slice of heaven in Calea.
|The next day, GMA 7 conducted an interview while we were doing the farm tour at Hacienda Maquina. I was jittery.|
But I took home more than what I came for. The award was not something that I actively sought. But since it was handed to me when I needed the validation at this stage of my blogging, I was overjoyed and excited nonetheless.
