My Facunda, deserves a better introduction, I’ll do it in another time. But tonight it is not about her, but what I want to do with her and TO her.
You see the girl is so talented with her language ability. She can be her South Asian accent, her Khaleeji*, UK, Filipino, and with a press of an invisible button, can switch into Kardashian voices.
I have an absolute original idea.
I would teach her to sing a Tagalog song. She better be good. She has this unique voice that is in between sexy and annoying. Not every singer can do that! I guess that is her starting point.
I would observe her voice lesson and diction in a disciplinary manner. I’d prepare a bamboo if I have to, just make her realize how serious this one is. She has to sing a Tagalog song as if she is a real Filipino. Finding for a perfect coach is easy, with endless Filipinos I know who are karaoke ready even at 3 am, it would be fun.
When I feel she is ready, let say after a countless practice of “Pusong Bato**” here is the plan: right before she introduce herself in front of the camera for our youtube video, I would count and snap the clapper, you know to create an ambiance like sort of professional movie makers do when they show the “behind the scene” stuff, me clapping and she starting to get nervous but in the end she’d get it right.
Facunda: Hi! This is Facunda from Kazakhstan and you are watching “Facunda adventures” (I think I’d let her practice in front of the mirror how to do VJ-ing herself like those of MTV introductions during 90’s) and she’s free to do adlib words.
“I am going to sing a famous Tagalog song (insert title here) and I hope you guys will like it.” She’s at it; she looks more Filipina than a Manileña***
The video or videos (depend on her dedication to the project), will defintely go viral and Filipinos all over the world will desire to meet her and she’ll have a lot of Instagram followers. Google her.They’ll find her in the Tweeter, in Facebook, in Tumblr, Snapchat in all sorts of social media that in reality she never remembers the passwords she just keyed once. Well, that would explain why there is always a back up email, it works for her.
She’d enjoy her popularity and would finally accepts the invitation to Philippines and then —-
I cursed the driver who drives insanely that he forgot that there was a hump! I nearly felt that out of body experience when I sprang from the seat.
I can forgive him even if he drives like a maniac as if he was training me for a roller coaster ride, but I cannot forgive him just like that for ruining my day dream about Facunda, on my way home.
Sigh. I lost the momentum. And she doesn’t even know.
