introducing natasha cang. she used the first three to describe herself. you can also add the last two to her resume after she hosted the company 2010 year end party.
towards the end of the show, she announced the best dressed male and female awards. and sounding like a TV sales channel, she said.. "but wait! I said we are awarding three best dressed awards for tonight, we have an award for the in-between..."
"maybe i should call this CREATURE on stage."
ooohhh... i can hear the kitty claws popping out.
some high profile officers beside me literally cringed when natasha said those words. the company i work for has a very strong policy regarding racial, religious, political and gender discrimination. to have a host refer to an employee as an in-between and a creature is plain stupidity and shows an utter lack of sensitivity.
at the very least, she could have taken a cue from the roaring approval of the audience when the company "goddesses" came out in full Victoria's Secret inspired number that shows how inclusive the organization is. a fact that even the 2009 host, Jude Bacalso, noticed the open acceptance of the gay community in the company is something that speaks about the culture of an inclusive global organization.
Rain for Queen 2009, Vanity for Ms. Carnival Queen 2010 and Maki as Queen 2010. All employees (or former employees) of the company that are highly regarded amongst their colleagues.
if you are to line up all three with Natasha on stage, it would be an easy guess which one is going backstage. not to nitpick, but the gown that Maki wore on stage during her production number as well as the hot red dress that Vanity wore easily wins versus the glittering red lechon inspired serpentina gown of ms. cang. Cang's lechon for Natasha Cang - how appropriate.
it would have been a bit more palatable if she displayed amazing hosting skills. the quirky thing about call center companies, we easily pick up on grammatical and pronunciation errors. generally we turn off this evaluation mode in a social event. on the other hand, her gaffes are becoming obvious specially when she got paired with an equally incompetent and amateurish male host who even consulted the backstage crew how to pronounce the names of the officers listed in his cue card. just a small tip, at the very least, know the names of the top brass and bosses of the company and make sure to acknowledge their presence.
if it is any consolation, this one is definitely sure - she's not going back as host of any of the company shows. and if this post goes out to the other call center groups, she just might not get any hosting jobs from this sector.
