In The Mix Music Festival

What wouldn’t be the best way to enjoy the night than by listening to six acts perform live all night (with two of those being your fave bands and one of those being one of your fave solo artists) and jumping, screaming and singing your heart out until midnight? I experienced all of these last Thursday, August 18, 2016, during the In the Mix Music Festival at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Revolution in Manila (Les Mis Review)

Stage before the start of the second act of the show

After falling in love with the musical about 4 years ago, I waited for the moment when Les Miserables would finally come to Manila to showcase its marvelous beauty. Luckily, it was announced late last year that the Australian production would be coming to the country + imports from the other productions of Les Mis, such as Earl Carpenter from New York to play Javert, and our very own Rachelle Ann Go to play Fantine. I was really happy to be able to watch the April 1 show at 8 pm in the Solaire Theatre.

Sam Smith Live in Manila

image

Last November 21, I was able to witness one of the greatest vocalists of this generation. If you are familiar with the 2015 Grammy Song of the Year “Stay With Me”, then I’m pretty sure you know who I’m talking about. He is no other than Sam Smith, who mesmerized the hearts of many Filipinos during his concert at the Mall of Asia Arena. Click here for more pictures.

The Night Manila Felt the Sweetness

IMG_20150918_200257

She Will Be Loved. This Love. Misery. Makes Me Wonder. Maps. Sugar. The list goes on and on. Maroon 5 has been making hits for over a decade, and I was really hyped when I was able to watch their fourth concert here in Manila last September 17. The concert was sold out, and I was really stoked that I got tickets to see one of my favorite rock bands live, whose songs will keep you dancing on your feet and stage presence to bring you a whole lot of energy. Click here for more pictures.

When Walk the Moon Made Us Shut Up and Dance

image

2015 is the year where indie rock artists and bands rose to fame, and Manila was once again lucky to be able to watch one band whose famous anthem, “Shut Up and Dance” is evidently heard on radios and can be seen on the charts. The band behind this song is Walk the Moon (WTM), and they had a mall tour here in the Philippines last August.

Living the Teenage Dream in Manila

Katy Perry performing Firework

Katy Perry’s highly-anticipated return to Manila for her Prsimatic World Tour brought me to over excitement on the morning of May 7. Despite the concert starting at 8 pm, my parents and I left home en route to the Philippine Arena which was the venue for the show. With this arena located at Bulacan which is more or less 3 to 4 hours away from us, we had to leave early. And even if this concert resulted to us arriving back home at 3 am, hands down it was the best concert I’ve ever seen. Objectively speaking.

‘Superheroes’ in Manila

image

Happy to say that I finally saw the band I’ve loved since I was 11 years old last April 17. This band is of Irish descent and is known for their hits “Breakeven”, “Nothing”,  “Hall of Fame”, “Superheroes”, and many more. This band is no other than The Script and they set Manila cheering once again as they held their 3rd concert in the country at the Mall of Asia Arena.

1989

A record-breaking album with a whole new vibe, I didn’t really expect Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 to be a huge hit to be honest. I mean, she’s technically a country/pop-country artist and I wasn’t able to imagine how she could pull off a pure pop record. Till I listened to the album of course. Continue reading “1989”

To Stay or not to Stay?


What if you already had a happy life? A perfect family, a loving boyfriend and a bright future ahead of you? Then all of a sudden these things are worthless because of a fatal accident. But what if you were given a choice? What if you were given a chance to live? To survive and do all the things you need to do? Continue reading “To Stay or not to Stay?”

I would like to start off with the first memorable experience that I had this year.
