Here Comes The Sun

Wow. It took me this long to put up this post.

Anyway, last October 22 was our last day of final exams for 1st term. Uh-huh, I wasn't able to chose not to study despite... whatever. It didn't really matter, I'd only be repeating things I already know if I studied.

After finishing in second in our last exam, I hurriedly went out of school to meet up with my friend Donna at Mall of Asia for our evening rendezvous. Unexpectedly, a lot of things happened in between making me late (again) for our appointment schedule. So around 6:30pm, I was able to meet up with her and her friends Meg and Andre. We headed to her house for dinner and some rest before we went to Bagaberde in Roxas Blvd. for the benefit concert that she was invited in by Jayjay Lozano (yes, of The Bloomfields).

After some yada-yada, walking, weaving through crazy night traffic and some more walking we arrived at Bagaberde at half past 8pm. The place was good, though a little bit thrown off by the indoor smoking... but it was all good. An hour and a half later, Marie (Donna's school friend) arrived just as the first few songs were being performed by the first band.

I just wanted to have some fun. And fun I DID have.

The sets were really really fun and hyped-up. The band Take Note was the first to perform before The Bloomfields. And that night, despite myself - I became a groupie fan.

We grooved to old school tunes like it's a 70's promenade. And after a few vodkas or so (just 2 bottles, promise), I found myself dragged on the dance floor by Donna.

Good times, seriously. There was even a time that Pepe (Lozano) danced the twist with me. Donna was shocked, so am I! That was a really fun night. Case in point: Jayjay's Uptown Girls (secret na lang 'yon!).

It was too bad though 'coz I have to end the fun at 12:30am. Dad was calling me nonstop. It was really sad that I wasn't able to meet the guys after their set.

But anyway, there's still next time right?

Congratulations to The Bloomfields for a very successful benefit concert (and to everyone else involved, this goes out to ya'll!).
