What has RuPaul’s Drag Race Taught Me

I’ve recently started binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race and so far I’ve seen seasons 1, 4-6, and 10. Personal favorites are present, of course — Nina Flowers, Sharon Needles, The Princess, Adore Delano, and Kameron Michaels. For me they stood out during their batch runs and their costumes and makeup and concepts just blew my mind.

Their skills are just so surreal. How do you turn your man-self into a woman in just a matter of hours? It’s a queen’s secret, I guess. As a girl who is never artistically-inclined, I like watching this show because I can see guys who are, and are just so freakin good at it! I could honestly never.

Their wardrobe is straight out of a designer’s sketchbook, and sometimes even waaaaay better — no offense. The fact that they visualize and create and sew them themselves, woah. Mind blown. I myself know how to sew a few stitches to mend a tear on my clothes, but a whole-ass outfit? With all those details and rhinestones and crystals? Work!

The lip-sync moments, unbelievable. How can somebody be fabulous AND talented at the same time? 😦 Don’t you think it’s a bit unfair for the rest of us here? Hello?!

Okay kidding aside, my ulitmate favorite moments are when Ru asks the girls thought-provoking questions, i.e. who should go home tonight?, why do you think you should win? These may seem a little bit shallow for some, but if you try to answer those questions, you would also think about the pros and cons of each contestant, how were they able to use their strengths and weaknesses in the competition, did their dress complement their true selves, how did they shine throughout?

You see, it’s not always about the glitz and glamour. Most of the time, it’s discovering your authentic self while watching these talented queens discover themselves as well. The friendships and the sisterhood that develop — genuinely beautiful. To be able to mix with the people who have the same interests as you, who will definitely teach you a trick or two, who are not afraid to show vulnerability to you, and you to them — you would just hope that everybody finds that kind of relationship. It may be like that on some other shows, but recently, I’ve really been addicting over Drag Race. To the point where I felt the need to write this. LOL.

So much love for my CUNT queens!


Love and light,
Precious

Aladdin: In the Eyes of an Agrabah Outsider

I learned to not have high expectations when I’m about to do something for the first time. Aladdin is the first-ever musical (outside school requirements) that I have ever seen. But I did have high expectations on this one, unlike on the live-action film.

Make Way for Prince Ali!

Everybody knows Aladdin. In fact, growing up, one of my favourite Disney princesses is Jasmine. When I first saw the trailer, I thought that it might be a bad adaptation. But there’s a lot of grey area in “bad”, if you know what I mean. Thus, I did not have high expectations on this one.

I would just like to say a few things about Aladdin 2019. Hmm, where do I start?

{Book Review} All the Bright Places

ATBP_BLOG


Written by Jennifer Niven and published on January 6, 2015, All the Bright Places is surely Eleanor & Park meets The Fault in Our Stars. This young-adult fiction novel has its own twist, though. It may seem a little goody good and light for its cover and title, but what do they say, “Never judge a book by its cover” and by its title, as I say.
