when i joined tag’s pressure cooker game

It was Sunday, the 1st of December, the UAE National Day holiday. I was in the middle of making a batch of cupcakes when I received a call from an unknown number. I answered and to my surprise it was Maria Maldita of Tag 91.1 asking me if I was game to join their Pressure Cooker contest. Of course I said YES! and she immediately got ready by announcing the game and prize.

Everything happened so fast. When I heard her say “Hello Pamela!” I was so excited and nervous, which was obvious with the high pitch of my voice when I replied “Hello po!” (Syempre, magalang dapat. Hahaha). Here’s how the rest of our conversation went:

Maria Maldita: Ready ka na bang sumali sa Pressure Cooker Game?

Me: Yes po.

Maria Maldita: Ok, Pamela, sa loob ng 30 seconds, magbigay ng pangalan ng tatlong banda sa Pilipinas bukod sa Eraserheads. Go!

My brain went totally blank so I ran to the bedroom where Hubby was because (1) he had attended several concerts when he was in college, and (2) he had a shirt that had all the band names that performed in one of the concerts he had attended. Unfortunately, he was too distracted and the shirt was in the washing machine.

Me: Tatlong banda sa Pilipinas? Umm…umm…ahh…

My sister suggested a band.

Me: Neocolours?

Maria Maldita: Ok.

Me: Umm…banda sa Pilipinas…Parokya ni Edgar?

Maria Maldita: Ok. Isa pa!

My nephew suggested a name, which I later learned is a Filipino hip-hop rapper.

Me: Abra?

Maria Maldita: Abra?! Hahaha! Hindi! Isa pa. Kaya mo yan!

Me: Ahhh…umm…Six Cycle Mind? I wasn’t even sure of this answer because I don’t even know the band, but it just entered my brain. But luckily…

Maria Maldita: Yehey! Congratulations, Pamela!

I literally shrieked with happiness and relief! And when she asked me if I wanted to greet anyone, I just blurted out the names of the people who were in front of me: Guchi, Ate Ning, Gabe, Caila and Sophie. I forgot everyone else. So to all my friends out there, sorry na. I totally forgot because of all the excitement.

When I put down the phone, I didn’t even know how I would be able to claim the prize. But then yesterday, I received an SMS from 4003 with the details on how to collect it. And this morning, a staff from the radio called me to confirm if I received the SMS. Nakakatuwa! 

So what did I win from getting pressured for 30 seconds? 
2 tickets to see Eraserheads, Parokya ni Egdar and more on the 27th of December at the High Impact A2 Festival at Meydan Racecourse!
I haven't claimed the tickets yet, but I definitely will before the 26th of this month. 
Yaaaay! What a great treat for our monthsary!
