DIARY OF A NEWBIE!

THE “P” TALKS!

BY: Pilar Mateo

HE JOINES THE “BUWAYARTISTA” segment in the noontime show, “LOL” (Lunch Out Loud) hosted by a bevy of artists.

Migz Coloma shares his experience in the show which in the end got him a P10K win.

“Nung paglabas ko pa lang ng bahay tita, sobrang excited na po ako. Despite it being my first time sa lock-in taping, alam ko po sa sarili ko na kaya ko ito. Before I got in sa service, I already had my game face on to be sure I was ready for anything.

“As we arrived at the location kung saan kami mag swab po, I then realized na ako na lang pala magisa. Wala na sila mommy, nasanay po kasi na buntot kay mommy (Juvy) hahaha! Pero I knew that I had the guts to be on my own.

“As we got to the hotel, lalo po ako na excite. Nandoon po yung ibang sasali din sa contest sa ibang segment. Nakaka overwhelm yung feeling na nandoon ka na kasi you don’t know what to expect din lalo na sa shoot namin kaya I didn’t put my guard down. Habang nasa hotel po ako, inorient din po kami about sa flow ng show. Good thing I took down notes kasi para i-practice ko po s sarili ko at ma gamay ko ang show para hindi na mangangapa pag dating ng day of shooting.

“Nag-practice din po ako agad ng mga ipapakita ko at sasabihin ko sa contest namin. I was up all night just to practice and internalize. I did all this kasi tita for me, hindi lang po yung talent at yung looks ko ang pang laban kundi ang confidence at pagdedeliver ng mga sasabihin at gagawin ko on stage.

“If I were to be asked: “What would be your advantage sa kalaban mo?” Ang masasabi ko po tita yung pag peprepare ko sa sarili ko. Imbis na nag hayahay ako sa hotel na nagrerelax panood nood lang ng TV, I pushed myself to practice every second I had the time to relax. Kaya siguro tita pagdating ng shoot po namin, I knew that I would kill this stage!!

“Kaso tita nung pagdating po namin sa studio medyo nanliliit po ako, kinabahan po ako tita bigla na may halong excitement. Nung pinag run through po kami ni direk ng talent portion po namin ramdam ko po yung kaba ko tita kaya at that time, medyo sumasablay yung kanta ko at yung galaw ko pang patay! Sabi ko po nun “Hindi pwede to!” So I shrugged it off. As time passes by, naghihintay na lang po kami ng turn namin sa segment.

“Habang tumatagal ako dun tita nagiging komportable na po pakiramdam ko, I was more relaxed nung naka daldalan at biruan ko po yung makeup artist na si Ms. Rhea. Also sa makakalaban ko sa contest naging close na din po kami ni bro Marlon Mendez.

“Nakakahalubilo ko na din po yung ibang staff po doon sa set, nagustuhan din po nila siguro ako. Unti-unting nawawala po yung pagiging tense ko. Also, nakapag papicture po ako kay Ms. Laboching! Kaya lalo ako mas naging comfortable sa loob ng studio. Iba din po kasi yung feeling pag nasa studio na, lalo na’t first time ko po. Nakaka kaba na nakaka mesmerize po yung pakiramdam.

“Nung tinawag na po kami tita para pumunta sa backstage, I was getting pumped up and ready to go. Although nakaramdam din po ako ng kaba pero natabunan po ng excitement. Na parang wala akong dapat gawin kundi magpakita ng talent at galing sa stage, na parang wala nang kinabukasan. I also prayed na bigyan po ako ng ni Lord ng strength to perform and that no matter I do, I do it to glorify Him. And no matter what happens after this whether I proceed to the next or go home, I prayed that may His will be done.”

The show proper.

“As soon as the music began, I knew it was show time! When the backstage opened up and I was going to walk in that entrance, I felt fire in my soul like I knew I was gonna show everything that I’ve got and that there was no holding back. Before I knew it, I was already standing next to The Ms. Alex G, sir Billy (Crawford) , sir Bayani (Agbayani) and sir Wacky! Grabe tita yung feeling na katabi mo sila. Dati napapanood ko lang po sila sa TV and now, ako naman ang napapanood sa TV with them! Halo halo na po yung pakiramdam ko at that time pero I had to keep my cool kasi nasa contest na nga pala ako hahaha! They interviewed me as if I was only in a casual TV/Livestream guesting.

“At this point I knew that I got this in the bag because I’ve been through this kind of setting for quite many times now, It’s like riding a bike standing up. They let me act to show what I can do in acting.

“Pinabunot po nila ako sa dalawang bowl. The first bowl is the theme of the movie na iaact out ko, 2nd bowl is the lines na iaact out ko po. Kinabahan po ako pero nagulat po ako sa nabunot ko kasi alam ko po na kaya kong gawin yung nabunot ko, and so I did my best to impress them at natuwa naman po sila sa nagawa kong piece.

“After that it was time to showcase my talent. Dito lalo lumakas yung apoy ng pakiramdam ko. Nung nagpeperform na po ako, I felt nothing else but the feeling na I was so so so happy to be there showing my best sa lahat na nandoon, lalo na po kila Ms. Alex, sir Billy, sir Wacky and sir Bayani. Pag nagpeperform na po talaga ako, bigla nawawala yung kaba.

“Parang hyper pa nga po ako pag nagpeperform ako tsaka sobrang na eenjoy ko po mag perform at gustong gusto ko ipakita sa mga tao doon na nageenjoy po ako sa stage at gusto ko mag enjoy din sila sa performance ko. Yun po talaga purpose ko sa pagpeperform. Hindi lang sa masaya ako sa ginagawa ko, pero gusto ko din nakikita na masaya po ang tao sa performance ko.

“Pagkatapos po ng performance ko, pina baba po muna ako sa stage para maka entrance na po yung 2nd contestant. Doon po sa pinagtatayuan ko, nandoon po sila sir Ariel Rivera and Ms. K Brosas. Napatingin po sila saakin kaya napangiti ako sa tuwa at nag wave and hello po ako sakanila. Nagulat po ako tita nilapitan po ako ni sir Ariel!!! Ang sabi nya po saakin: “Taga San Juan ka din pala.” Tinanong nya po saakin kung saan po ako sa San Juan sabi ko Brgy. Batis po ako. Sinabi naman po nya na taga San Juan din daw po siya, sa Brgy. Balong-bato. Grabe yung pakiramdam ko tita! Sobrang tuwa na nalapitan po ako ng Veteran Singer/Actor na si sir Ariel Rivera! Just by standing close to them is something that I can’t describe. Parang panaginip to be working with them and seeing them close by. Ehh tita paano pa kaya yung feeling na nilapitan ka ni sir Ariel, it’s outta this world!!

“Nung nagpeperform na yung 2nd contestant, I knew na mananalo na siya. Ang galing nya po tita ehh napa wow din po sila sakanya. But then I said si Lord na bahala, I trust in His plan for me. Nung natapos na po siya, pinabalik na po ako sa stage. It was time for the results. Dito po ako mas kinabahan sa lahat tita, ayokong ma matalo, ayokong makain ako ni Crocky yung buwaya hahaha! Pag talo po kasi tita pinapakain kay Crocky kaya ang tawag po sa segment: ‘Buwayartista.’

“Nung nakuha na po yung result, nakita ko may hawak si sir Bayani na necktie. Di ko actually nagets nung una, yun po pala “It’s a tie!” Hahaha! Either may isa pong mananalo tita or dalawa mananalo or parehas talo po. Ang nangyare, dalawa po kami nanalo kaya it was a successful day para saamin ni Marlon. No one was eaten by Crocky hahaha! First time nga daw po nangyare na may nag tie o dalawa nanalo po tita. And sa susunod na round, mas gagalingan ko pa po. I’m actually already planning on what I’m going to show them sa Semis!”

It was last July 9 in “Lunch Out Loud” on TV5 when his chance to win in ‘Buwayartista’ segment was shown.

The Kindat King of San Juan made it!

Now, he is in Villa Escudero to do several scenes for GMA-7s “LOLONG”!

Step-by-step, Migz is slowly inching his way to get to where he is fated to be. In showbusiness.

The stars are already giving him tons of memories to keep!
