I Heart Naydah

Just in case you missed the show last Thursday, some people have already posted snippets from this year's Faculty Follies on YouTube.

Jovy Peregrino did a very awesome job as La Diva. Watch the opening here. He had several costume changes.

The Dean's office was the first to perform, with Galileo Galilee doing "Blue Jeans." By sheer cuteness, he won the year's search for KALkaibang Idol.

The department of Art Studies had a political allegory with Gloriyah singing "My Way."

"I Heart Naydah" 1, 2 is the Department of English's take on (sac)religious Abba and Shaider medley. This is your only chance to see department chair Dr. Naida Rivera singing songs by Abba, Dr. Consolacion Alaras dancing to the Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps," and the junior faculty taking off and waving around their brassieres to the tune of the Pussy Cat Dolls' "Doncha." Some wiseass said that the performance should have won Best Portrayal of the Triumph of Women. Nyahaha.

In "Paris, that's hot" the Department of European Languages envisions what would happen to Paris Hilton should she get poor and start working in a call center. Prof. Erwin Bautista dons a blonde wig and four inch heels while sashaying to "Nothing in this world." Fun fun fun, and their call (center) girls can shake it like there's no tomorrow. They won the "Putogenic" award entitling them to a year's supply of puto. But I think they should win for Best Use of Office Equipment.

The Department of Filipino traces the rise and fall of Vina Te, a former porn star trying to stage a comeback. Vina Te was rumored to be actually a man and s/he tries to disprove it by singing Tuesday Vargas's "Di Ako Bakla."

The office of the college secretary had Rhicky Marthin. Ten years after swinging his hips to World Cup theme, he reprises this role amidst a stage full of young men.

The Department of Speech and Theater Arts represented the military with Rambeleena, an operatic diva. They won Best Production for their yards and yards of wavy cloth which covered the entire stage.

All in all, it was a fun (though tiring) experience. Both shows played to a full house, with lots of people sitting in the aisles and laughing their heads off. Our thanks to everyone who supported and helped us with the show, especially to Vlad who tirelessly directed, shot, edited and scored the video and Fairlycloudy, who did our fabulous makeup.
