Finally, nirelease na rin nila officially. Oh-em-gee. I swear. I’m so loving this.
Sabi nga ni Allyson habang nag-uusap sila ni Mommy Paola sa madilim na bahagi ng pageant sa Bukidnon (in Tagalog):
Allyson: Di ko maintindihan kung bakit dito sa mga probinsya, mahilig sila magpa-MG (Miss Gay) para sa mga first timers.
Mommy Paola: Masarap raw kasi ang first time.
Oo. Eto. Perstyam ito ng TYG kaya masarap (at hihirit akong sana masundan pa, haha). Masarap na masarap, ohyeah. I-access ang press release dito. Opisyal na. TYG competes in the Dragons and Tigers Section sa Vancouver Film Festival. Char!
