part two: eng’gchanted

Posted on: December 19, 2011

after our chocolate kiss merienda, maki and i headed to the up theater for the miss engineering pageant. this is sort of a culminating activity for the up engineering week. it’s a contest where guys pretend to be girls and wear bikinis and gowns, just like in a real beauty contest.


first time ko sa miss eng! hahaha! and this year’s theme is eng’gchanted. the stage had towers on each side… for princesses to come out of. hihihi.


here’s the ticket and uh, i was wearing shorts… this is something i like in up, they let their students wear comfy clothing. going back to the ticket, this one was courtesy of my maki’s friend aileen. thank you very much! i love engineers!


the show started with a blast! they showed a short documentary of the contestants… kung papano nila tinago yung alam mo na, hehehe. take note, these are all straight young men. gays are not allowed to join, so i’m told. tapos kung sino daw yung gusto nilang patulan among the contestants. too funny! they were also introduced and had a dance number… there was snow white, tinkerbell, princess jasmine, even the red queen! but since i’m with maki, who’s a member of the ge club or the geodetic engineering club, siyempre ang bet ko ay si cinderella! he’s the ge representative. here o…


ang cutee niya, from the top, you see him in his character dress, the shoes are so shiny! ; then swimwear, ang kinis kinis po ng pwet nya. hahahah! ; next is the talent portion where he danced to bubble pop by hyuna, i’m not a big fan of hyuna but i like bubble pop now. ang galing niyang sumayaw, his is the only performance wherein the backup dancers didn’t steal the light. ; after that is the evening gown, ang bagal ng lakad niya, walking in sky high cinderella heels is no mean feat, but he got the award for best evening gown! so pretty! ; and of course, the question and answer part! sa tingin ko, he had the wittiest answer of all, but this part only accounts for a small part of the scores.


third runner up! he was ever so graceful and smiled a lot. i think he deserved the crown. in the end, i knew the ge club were happy, which is an understatement kasi they were screaming at the top of their lungs, and proud of their cinderella.


attack of the engineers! maki and i milled around with a few more of her engineering friends. sobrang nag-enjoy ako, next year ulit. more pixxors here!

yun lang.

[…] this year’s theme is andronica. unlike last year’s super girly, lace-filled enggchanted, andronica is more of sexy robot glitter and metallics. there was even one contestant who came out […]
