Last night I took part in a milestone in Philippine music history.

08 March 2009

Saturday of March 7, 2009 was one of the most awesome Saturdays EVER. All hail to Eraserheads! I love Chito Miranda but I've got to give it to Ely Buendia, you totally rock! You are a genius, and I love you. Raimund Marasigan, Marcus Adoro, and Buddy Zabala, I love you.

I was waiting for this event for weeks, and I am just so happy I was able to go. I went with my soul sister/ co-editor in chief/ co-publisher Ana and my brother Ken.

I am glad I was one of the sea of people who trooped to SM Mall of Asia just to take part in this never-to-be-repeated event in music history.

Last night, under the inky black sky, under the moon and the stars, together with the other 99,999 people (assuming that the event's "10 million fans, only 100,000 will see" tag line is accurate) who came to see Eraserheads' final set, I was blown away.

I grew up listening to their songs and I am just thankful for the chance to see them perform live, for the last time.

Ely singing "Kailan" accompanied only with a piano was indeed heartbreaking, poignant, enigmatic. I caught my breath, I was mesmerized.

Electrifying. Overwhelming. Orgasmic. Words are not enough to describe it.

I took videos and pictures but I would have to post them on Tuesday because I would go back to the apartment in a few hours. More comprehensive post when I finally post them.

Truly, it was a night worth remembering. A milestone, if you may. And I am glad I was part of it.

Thank you Eraserheads, for your contribution to OPM. Can I just say again that I love you?

And to Francis Magalona, I love you and I admire you greatly. You will be sorely missed, but your legacy will live on through your music.

I am still overwhelmed.

Victorian Valentine II

03 March 2009

I was finally able to upload the photos from the Victorian Valentine party! I was supposed to post them last week but forgetful me left the memory card at the apartment when I went home =[

Anyway, the pictures were from the event I blogged about in my last post (which seems like ages ago!). I attended a Victorian Valentine party with my college bestfriend Recks and her boyfriend Ryan and sister Michelle.

The ambiance was very nice and apt, with good lighting, beautiful and ornate furniture and lots of rose petals strewn everywhere. There was even a string quartet! There was a Human Auction (with the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross), tarot reading (I wanted to have my fortune read but I was too lazy to fall in line haha!), poetry reading, ballet dance number, photo booth, and a ball. We were served cupcakes, bread sticks and red wine. There was even a chocolate fountain and candy sprinkles and rice crispies.

I spent more than half the night ogling at other people's costumes. People really do spend for these stuff! It was my first time to attend a cosplay event so I was amazed at the effort enthusiasts put in in creating elaborate and very detailed costumes.

Okay, enough talk. Here is what I wore!

I wore a long black backless satin gown, accessorized with black strappy heels. black satin 'finger-less' gloves, black satin rose bag, red feather boa, black/ red fascinator, black rose ring, swarovski earrings, and the black necklace I made.

The black pearl/ chain necklace I made especially for this occasion This is probably my favorite part of my outfit. This and the satin gloves. Ü

I did my own makeup. This is my waterloo, my Achilles' heel, if you may =D

We look like covers of the Twilight saga. from left to right: Michelle - Twilight Krissy - New Moon Ryan - Breaking Dawn Recks - Eclipse

I just love this photo.

All balls had to end though. Recks dropped me off at McDonalds in QC where Dane was already waiting for me. We just stopped by a Burger King drive thru and then he took me home.

Cinderella all-smiles after the ball.
Oh wait, I love Jasmine more. I'll be Jasmine.
Jasmine all-smiles after the ball haha! Ö

I had so much fun! All in all this was indeed a night to remember Ü
