11.45pm MNL time.

Am listening to Vertical Horizon right now and it totally slipped my mind that I wasn't able to blog about my adventure!

Here goes...

Was surfing the ticketnet website (my day isn't complete without checking if there are new tickets available for upcoming concerts here in MNL) and I came upon the Vertical Horizon concert.

Immediately IMed my concert buddy, and he was game to watch =)
Called the ticket hotline and reserved 2 tickets for upper A (this isn't the front block), but we were front row -- albeit not in the center area.

A colleague of mine happened to drop by my computer and saw that I was arranging for the tickets. She called up another colleague and convinced 2 of their friends to go with them in the concert. Funnily enough, my teammate also learned that I was going to the concert and also wanted to watch.

So, the next day, we got tickets -- row A seats 1-6 of upper Box A area 302.

Only prob was my teammate had a different seat reservation -- i believe area 301, seat 7-8 row D.

The day after that, he was able to exchange his tickets for the ones beside us. So now we occupied Upper Box A area 302 row A seats 1-8. Fun, huh?

So, day of the concert. December 7th, 2007.

Plans of leaving work at exactly 6pm was thwarted since there was this user from London who needed attended to.

Ended up leaving the building at 6.15pm and traffic was hellish! It took us an hour and a half to get to the venue.. Yes... that long. We arrived at the Araneta Coliseum at around 7.45pm.

Sheryl was feeling like we were in the amazing race.. Wanting to beat the time because she wanted to watch the front act, a local band called Rivermaya.

We were able to see a few of Rivermaya's set while eating overpriced Wendy's takeout that we had for dinner.

Jamie Kennedy was also there. He was funny.

Then a LOT of waiting before Vertical Horizon came in.

They started playing at around 9.30pm and the show started around 10.45

Nice yeah?

I don't really remember the setlist but i'll probably edit this post once I do remember -- IF i do remember :P

Off to bed now...

holiday day 1 -- december 12th.

Stuck at home watching the telly.

Curently watching CNN where they were talking about the film "Babel" (which I didn't get to watch -- loser me). This girl was talking in Japanese -- i used to know how to speak Japanese, but for some reason, my memory isn't as sharp as it used to be. errrr.. that was only a year ago since I last took lessons and nearly 6 years ago since I took this up as a foreign language in high school.

Chatting with Nina right now. Talking about... this band... and anything under the sun.

L, a close friend of mine, is currently on vacation too but she is getting her passport ready for our trip next year (sooo can't wait -- i really must get my funds set up for this cos my teammate told me its gonna probably cost me around 50k if i plan to go to all the countries i told you -- OMG...)
L, I also researched on how to get visas on those 3 countries we were talking about. Hella hard to get one, man!

I was also searching the net last night for some quotes and I came across these:

"Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."

"Try and fail, but don't fail to try."

Very inspirational, huh?

On another note... I so want the Starbucks planner -- not that I need it (I already have a planner for 2008). But its just that I'm only 11 coffees away from getting the planner -- thanks to my meal allowance and also some colleagues who gave me their stickers =) So.. I just have to find the time (and the money) to drop by Starbucks and get myself my favourite drink -- Peppermint Mocha. I hate it that they only offer this drink every Christmas X-(

That's it for now. I'm off to watch some old tv reruns. =)

the days ahead before the year ends.

It's also been a while since I've blogged.


Today is the officially start of my 7-day holiday.

So what now?

I've actually planned to get a few IDs during this time -- Social Security, Drivers License -- that is, if i'm not too lazy to do it.

For those of you interested, this is what I plan to do the following days ahead...

Wednesday, December 12th -- I plan to catch up on some telly shows that I've missed

I've been thinking of getting a pampering day on Thursday, December 13th. I kinda need that.

Friday, December 14th -- I am going to a carnival with my friend in the evening, and in the morning, its shopping galore in Chinatown =)

Saturday, December 15th -- Office Christmas Party -- will do a dance cameo with colleagues.

Sunday, December 16th -- hibernate. hibernate. more hibernating.

Monday, December 17th -- this is the day when I'll really walk around and apply for those IDs I just mentioned above. I'll also probably do some driving around -- if i could have some extra cash for gasoline, that is.

Tuesday, December 18th -- er.. no plans yet.

Wednesday, December 19th -- back to work. I have a Christmas party at 730pm so I'll have to leave work early -- yay a reason for me not to go on overtime!

Thursday, Deccember 20th -- going to a carnival again (different from the one I've mentioned above) with another friend.

So, that's the start of my busy, busy week. yay yay.

Adventure, memories? Here I come.

On techie news..

I saw a college friend of mine a while ago randomly while I was strolling along a mall, on my way home. She's got an awesome phone! I don't know what model it is but now, I'm sooo wanting the phone of my dreams at the mo -- a Nokia 5700. Argh. Even though my old phone -- Sony Ericsson T630 -- is working perfectly at the mo (well, not exactly perfectly, its got its bugs and kicks but it still can receive text messages, calls, and can take photos albeit not very good ones) *sigh*

Also, I was reading here in blogger that I could link my youtube videos from there to here! Er.. will just try that out for a sec and will contine blogging after =)

Welcome Welcome! =)

Welcome to yet another blog site of mine in the web :P
I've grown fond of Multiply and Facebook but since it won't allow me to put google Adsense in there (i need the extra money for my adventures), i'd rather post here instead.

So, stay tuned to my adventures -- shopping, movies, concerts, and others in between-- and thanks very much for visiting my site. Do drop by often so I could earn more revenue lolz, and hopefully you'll get entertained by my adventures :)

--Ruby =)
