T4F: yeah. I’m thirteen again.

3 May 10

 

manila, may 2, 2010 – tonight, my kuya, SIL and my bestie cheche watched the dynamic duo tears for fears at the araneta coliseum. oh boy, they did not dissapoint. save for a few songs from their latest album that I didn’t quite dig, the trouble was all worth it.

we left kawit at exactly 5:00pm so that we have ample time to get to araneta for the 8:00pm show. since there’s the megamall sale, we figured it was good enough allowance for travel time. well, the trouble began when we reached guadalupe. traffic suddenly turtle-paced and it was horrific! nagtaka lang ako bakit ganun ang gapang namin. turns out, the yellow ones are having a miting de avance at the white plains. kwenta byahe, guadalupe to white plains was freaking 1½ hours. during this time, the four of us practically covered all the burning gossips going around our town. good times. haha.

parking was another problem when we got to araneta. so my kuya said that the three of us better just go inside the dome and secure our seats while he waits for an open slot. maybe I was just so worried we were going to be late, I mistakenly fell in line where the posh tickets are – eh, gen ad lang kami. anyway, we found our gate, got in and settled. 

pupil was on. ely was great, oks pa din but my heart belongs to the original eraserheads band. anyway, we were famished so my SIL ate kerol got us bonggang siopao and iced tea from the in-house food stall.  there was this big burly guy right infront of me who kept on nudging my knees with his elbows. I think he did that about 100 times during the entire show. but I got my revenge when cheche accidentally whipped him with her fan. he soon expired, as I can now smell a whiff of “asim” emanating from his multi-folded nape. but that’s okay, I was having fun!

they sang a fitting encore, as the song shout brought the house down. I had a hoarse voice after the show. roland orzabal said the word “mabuhay”, a pre-requisite for every foreign act coming to the philippines. my kuya was so glad he watched his favorite duo, to think that he always hesitated everytime I asked him to come watch them with me. he can’t stop raving about it on our way home. so. am I a great sister or what?

then he asked: “si mia prats from bagets yung nasa likod ko kanina, napansin nyo ba?”

us: “oo.”

kuya: “kapatid ba siya ni john prats?”

me: *snicker*

oh, brother.

meet enday (not related to ondoy), my mum:

you can call her wendy, wendeline (as in fall in line), wen (kailan?), wends (mga hangin?).

it’s not her birthday and it’s definitely not mother’s day. I just thought  I’d share this pretty layout I did of the one person who can read me, and probably my thoughts (gasp!) even from a mile away.

hug your mom today. she probably misses your bear hugs already.

have a fruitful weekend, peeps!

 


wapak!!!

at just half past one in the afternoon, my little town of kawit was virtually a ghost town. there are only a handful of tricycles plying the streets. all government-owned elementary schools and basketball courts were transformed into makeshift viewing halls with meager amenities for the attendees. people flocked here, even in the heat of high noon, just to watch “the pacman” in a widescreen together with a sardine-packed crowd. this is the closest my kababayans will ever get to do ala-MGM grand garden arena. but who cares?

mabuhay ka, manny! mabuhay din si nanay dayo-nee-zsa at jinkee

bagong bag, alahas at sasakyan na naman ito para sa kanila (and God knows what else).

PS:

la diva was a tad offtune in the beginning of their performance, noh? buti they were able to redeem themselves towards the end 😀

nanood kami ng friends ko ng mocha girls (oh, yesss…) sa island cove resort nung biyernes. at dahil pag-aari ito ng mga remullas, isang kilalang political clan sa aming bayan, natural lamang na nandoon ang dating kongresista ng ikalawang distrito ng cavite na si gilbert remulla. NGUNIT, DATAPWAT, SUBALIT! hindi ko akalain na makikita ko si atty. adel tamano doon!

atty adel tamano

sa sobra kong katuwaan ay nasigawan ko siya ng: “hi, attorney!”. sumagot naman din ng, “hello, kamusta!”. o-ha, feeling close 😀

this harvard-educated, former kundirana member was so divinely handsome and charming, I had to call dear to deliver the good  news. hindi ko talaga napigilan ang aking sarili at ako’y kinikilig pa habang kausap ko ang aking kabiyak sa cellphone. kerengkeng, noh?

lucky, lucky girl.
