Fever




Ang fearless forecast ni Mugen last Saturday sa inuman ng mga Engkantos ay magiging kulelat ang pambato ng Philippines sa Miss Universe Beauty Pageant. So what kung nasa Top 15 siya, Thank You Girl pa rin ang award ng ating kandidata.

Unlike Miss Venus Raj na inapi muna at nilapastangan ng Binibining Pilipinas Charities bago pinadala sa pageant, Shamcey Supsup has basically no story to tell. Walang drama or struggle na todo relate ang lahat kaya naman ang buong sangkabadingan ay lukewarm ang reception sa kanya.

The Missosologists are betting for Miss Ukraine, while the Las Tres Estrellas were for Miss Greece. I for one had already pinned my hopes with Miss USA because I found her elegant and beautiful. Ang mga Engkantos naman ay walang say sa kung sino ang dapat patungan ng crown, except that they are planning to copy that YouTube Video na sumikat last year.  

Tatapatan daw nina Pilyo, Papa Tagay, Rocco Sison at ni Fox yung mga tili at tambling with matching tears of joy nung mga bading.
  
Like I always did in the past, I would just sit in a corner and let the mainstream gays revel at the beauty pageant. Sino ba naman ako, hindi ko nga alam kung sino yung contestant natin sa Miss Universe before Venus Raj. Besides, with the odds stacked against us, I'd rather spend my time poking fun at the yearly habits of gay people during this time of the year.

Konting konti na lang, maari na magdeclare ng national holiday ang gobyerno tuwing sasapit ang coronation night. Sa dami ba naman ng nagle-leave of absence sa tuwing oras na ng telecast, better to let everyone enjoy the show kesa naman patagong nagsisipaglaho ang mga bakla. At this rate, it's not impossible to think na a third ng male population ng bansa ay maging swingers by 2015. Even the President of the Republic might be a closetta by 2020.

When I was in high school, nobody bothered to watch beauty pageants. Men would say they're just looking forward to the swimsuit competition, while the ladies, hindi ko actually alam ang reason nila for watching. Kids like us watched the show because it was an international competition. Kailangan daw "suportahan" ang pambato ng bansa.  Besides, enjoy naman talaga yung parade of colors diba?

Who would have thought those kids would grow up to become beauconeras one day.

More than the fun and the festivities, the growing tradition of beauty pageant watching tells something about us. Before, it was the effeminates and the parloristas who would rally behind the candidates. Kiburlah na ang sasabihin ng iba, basta dapat ang Pilipinas ay well-represent.

But now, things are starting to change.

I asked a gay colleague earlier kung ready na siya for Miss Universe. Siyempre ang sabi niya oo. We talked about Miss Supsup pati na rin yung signature walk niya nung pre-pageant. Apparently, he doesn't know about the walk. So ako naman na well-informed ang nagbigay ng link. To be honest, it was the Tsunami Walk that caught my attention. It was sweeping, revolutionary, at shit, napako ang tingin ko sa liyad at giling ng balakang ni Shamcey.







So there, life as we know it will grind to a halt at 9 am. And for the first time in recent memory, I have decided to throw my support and be one with my brothers and sisters in watching this yearly event. If ever Shamcey wins the crown, tatalbugan ko ang mga engkanto at pag-aaralan ko talaga yang Tsunami Walk na yan. If not, dating gawi ulit. Babalik ako sa pagka-straight, magbubuhat ng bakal sa gym at tatantanan na ang pagga-gay speak sa Twitter. 

But yes, you heard it right. I will be tuning in to Miss Universe tomorrow morning.

Rei:

Somewhere in your school, a group of gays and their fag hags will be watching the pageant. Lolz. Most likely, even some of your teachers will be secretly tuning in.

jetlander said...

Hi Mugen! Bet ko Si Ms. Malaysia. She's very elegant and queenly just like me. CHAR!

Ronnie said...

Oh gosh, I'm so boring. I just predicted Venezuela to win this year.

And oh, Supsup's catwalk is making waves ah. Kung makakendeng si anteh, kembot till the world ends LOL.

Unfortuantely, half-day lang ako bukas. Di pumayag si supervisor na iwanan ko ang trabaho over byukon hehe.

Pepe said...

ako na ang walang alam sa Tsunami Walk na ganyan. parang wala lang, pasalamat na kung lulusot si semis.

di ko nasundan to ngayon masyado, busy ako sobra kaya US and Venezuela ang hula ko. lol

Being the obsessive freak that I am, I tried to figure out how she does the Tsunami Walk. Here are my thoughts: shoulders held backward midway, back overarched to create tension, the torsion comes from pushing the lower torso outward as one walks, creating that snappy, uppity sway that cascades down her legs, knees kept supple and flexible to accentuate the disparity between the hips' movement and the gait of the upper body, and pointing her toes letting the toes hit first the floor first to elongate her strides. Her walk actually reminds me of Tyra Banks' Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2001 walk, but slower and more deliberate.

sh*t sa breakdown ni red the mod! hihi

ZaiZai said...

miss universe is to gays as manny's boxing fights is to the straight men.

kaya shamcey, ibongga mo yan, i knock out mo sila with your tsunami walk :)

Yuan said...

i dont think one needs drama or struggle to enter this contest and win it all. kanya kanyang tactics 'yan.

i believe Shamcey will win (nationalism aside).

^^

Leo said...

Aabangan ko ang video ng mga engkantos. It'll be fun for sure. Gusto ko ung idea na pinresent mo Mugen about a closetang President. It's possible! Haha. :)

wanderingcommuter said...

aaaahhh! the image! naiimagine kitang nag tsutsunami walk! WAAAAAAHhh!

RainDarwin said...

papa joms:

cge nga mag-tsunami walk ka nga next time na magtagayan tayo. Remember 3rd runner-up si Shamcey. It's already a feat.

Aabangan namin ang pagtsunami walk mo ha?

I repeat aabangan namin ang pagtsunami walk mo !!!

Mugen said...

Papa Pilyo:

I'm sorry but I want her to have the crown. At dahil diyan, walang Tsunami Walk na magaganap. Lolz.

At teka, nasan na yung tilian portion niyo ni Dadi?

Wiwik:

May kasama pang pouting lips yun!

Pero parang gusto ko yung lakad ni Miss Angola nung evening gown competition. Parang kinasta lang ng kabayo.

Leo:

Haha, sino ang tingin mo na closetta. Lolz. Wala eh, umatras sina Fox at Pilyo.

Yuan:

If I'm not mistaken, it was Miss Angola who organizes beauty pageants for other kids in her neighborhood when she was a young girl.

Diba ang ganda lang ng storyline? Lolz

Mugen said...

Zaizai:

Na-prove naman kanina. Hehe. Lahat ng mga bading nasa mga forums at twitter. Talagang opinionated basta pag dating sa Beauty Pageant.

Ronron:

Honga, walang representative ang Norway. Di ba dahil ito nung massacre a few months ago?

Hot Bicycle:

Napasupsup ka ba? Sayang no?

Bien:

Aasahan namin ang iyong kuwento. :D Biglang nanahimik sa twitter ang mga nag host ng Byucon viewing dito.

Greenbreaker:

I'm sure updated ka rin sa mga nangyayari kahit nasa iskool ka. Lolz.

Mugen said...

Jetlander:

Wala, olats si Miss Malaysia. Lolz.

Ronnie:

Di baleng half-day basta naabutan mo yung pageant. Haha.

Pepe:

Wala sa mga hula mo ang pumasok. Hehe. Actually, ang may closest prediction eh yung mga Missossologists. Hehe.

RedtheMod:


Thanks for the primer. Pag na-pressure akong mag Tsunami Walk nina Pilyo, hetong observations mo ang susundin ko.

Lyka Bergen said...

Lalabas at lalabas pa rin talaga ang pagka-bading mo pare ko. Sayang di nanalo ang Greece. Pero Oks na kami kay Angola. Cute sya!

Mugen said...

Lyka:

Ikaw ang may kasalanan nito kaya ako naging interested manood. Lolz.

Sean said...

wag nang closetang president. malay natin meron na pala dati di ba? dapat yung out and proud! pero sana gwapo at maskulado rin lol!

Mr. Brightside said...

I'm not a fan of beauty pageants but still proud that one of our own kababayan placed in Miss U this year. :D

Btw, yup that is our pic, taken sometime in December last year.

Mugen said...

Sean:

Nako, dagdag ka pa siguro ng another generation for that to happen. Hindi pa tayo handa. Lolz.

Mr. Brightside:

Haha recently lang ako naging interested ulit, salamat sa pakikisalamuha ko sa ibang bloggers.
