Two Ways

Posting some old photos when I still had my sort of wavy, thick and frizzy hair. I now have a curly, thick and frizzy bush of a hair.

This thrifted top is one of my favorite finds. It's pleated and has chain prints, but its being pleated sold me to it. This is mostly worn during movie dates and trips to the grocery.


It's Friday we're in love,

If Not Now, When?

The reason of all reasons. The point of it all.

Yes, this is the point of my trip to Manila - Incubus' Manila leg of their If Not Now, When? tour. Three years ago for their Light Grenades tour, I flew to Manila too to watch them live (I was already in Cebu then and I promised my friend I'd go as a birthday gesture to her). It was my first time to watch a 'real' concert and an international one at that so imagine my excitement. I would get lost at some Incubus geekery but you know, who cared? And I had a real sweet fleeting moment (don't ask) before the concert started so it was quite memorable. Hmm, I think I still have some pixelated camera phone videos somewhere...

I sang "This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made" immediately after I opened my eyes that morning. True story. Had a late lunch at Pepper Lunch Greenbelt then headed to Araneta Center. We arrived early, around 4:00pm and the earlier birds are already queued up.

My friend and I felt a bit sleepy so we thought a cup of coffee is fine. IT WORKED. We felt even more nervous AND excited.

Waiting was an agony. I already felt tired and sleepy queuing up outside the coliseum and standing/waiting at the SRO area a.k.a. mosh pit. But you know, IT WAS ALL WORTH IT.

ZOMG I nearly died HAHA.

Can you see me? I can't. Haha. There was a lot of pushing and jumping and I just had to jump up and down too otherwise I'd die LOL. I was actually close to the front (like 4th or 5th row, if you can make out the rows) but I had a bit of trouble seeing because I'm short and the farking cameras are just all around my face. I still had a pretty good view though.

I decided not to take videos and photos during the concert because I wanted to just be an old school concert goer.

One of my favorite Incubus songs is Consequence.

If they sang I Miss You 3 years ago, I would have bawled buckets. Not anymore HAHAHA.

The Walled City: Cloudy Afternoon Edition

When you're in Intramuros, walk. Padyak drivers may approach and offer you a tour for a fee but only agree when your feet already scream of murder. Otherwise, walk. Walk, look around, admire, read historical facts, learn. And take snaps, of course.
