We were supposed to have our Prom last Friday, February 22, but alas because of the uncooperative weather, it was postponed and rescheduled to Monday, February 25. The funny thing was after it got rescheduled, the skies cleared and the sun smiled down upon everyone hehe. Another weird thing is upon waking up, I had the tune of I Don't Like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats stuck inside my head the entire morning. What is freaaaaaky.
Anyhoo, so yesterday. Was. Monday. Ergo, we had our prom yesterday!! I started off the day by watching Argo hihi and it was such a fantastic film and one that really deserves the top award at the Oscars. After watching and after taking a bath and eating a snack, I went over to Casa de Chloe Reyes so we could go to the salon together and be girly and giggle hihi and live out our movie-based prom dreams.
For this year's promenade/turn over ceremony, we were to have a masquerade ball from sun down to sun rise (bongga ka day). We had the liberty to choose from the following themes to use as our guide on what to wear: Victorian/Shakespearean, Arabian Nights, Fantasy and the last option that I seem to have forgotten. The day the theme was released, which seems like decades ago, my friends and I hatched a plan to go as the people from Batman. After verifying with our teacher if it'd still fit in the fantasy category, we went on our ways and had our costumes made. But alas, a few weeks after, it was announced in an assembly that superheroes and characters from that kind of fandom are not allowed. The news seriously pulled the rug from under our feet but we had no choice since our costumes were already being made to come to life.
I really felt nervous about my get up since it was my first time ever to wear a wig. I had doubts if I'd come across looking very funny and out of place but then it is true that Poison Ivy wouldn't be Poison Ivy without the flaming hair so I gathered my wits and my big girl knickers and headed to the salon, wig in hand.
*This is my first time to do this and I feel really shy*

Chloe and I took our precious time and so.......we ran a wee bit late but as we sped through the high way, we used the sun to measure our tardiness hehehe. After serenading the seniors, we thinned out and formed a human border (that cheers) for the pathway of the seniors.
|I could double for Ariel..................|
|Adorable Partners #1 Chloe Reyes and Berns Bernal HAHA these very preppy and very pastel-y and mint-y woodland fairies with their Lana del Ray-ness and Etsy-y floral headdresses deserve the 'Cutest Pair Award'!!|
We then went to the Amadome where we sang songs and had the turning over of gifts. The highlight of the program, for me, was when Mr. Orines, our principal, sang 'Go The Distance' with the chorale. His voice was so nice and he was so inspiring and everyone just felt so inspired because the song was nice and inspiring and the night was soooooo nice.
|The teachers released butterflies all over after singing their song hehe|
After the program, the boys in our batch fixed the chairs in the Amadome and the buffet was officially opened.
|Black Swan Kobe!!!|
|My favorite of the night please!!!!!!! Tisha Esquejo just had me fawning all over her Red Queen costume hihi|
|Other adorable people!! Erik and his cropped suit hihi, Nona and her mataray gown with the poofy skirt, and Gil such a cute fairy!!!|
|Bianca, the Swan princess and emcee with Sir Carpio...as Padme Amidala ughh so cool!!!|
After dinner, we were gathered again in the Amadome to watch the Cotillion wherein the Presidents of each class and their partner....danced. I ultimately and officially became a stage mum/ #1 fan of Diana and Lennard hihi.
The party started after the Cotillion annnnnnnnnnnnnnd the amount of fun in it cannot be contained by the word fun. It was very fun and very nice and very tiring and very unforgiving to feet wearing high heels and very sweat-inducing and very bouncy and very funny.
|Prom King woop woop|
