lifehouse live in manila

a concert to remember

the ticket states that the show will start on time but it actually started 845pm. at 8pm, there was a mini program hosted by radio DJ's. they had a question and answer portion, and the prices were great.

someone won autographed CD's, t-shirts and new mobile phone. also the first 11 persons who bought the tickets have a chance to meet and greet lifehouse in person. waaaaaaaaah!

lifehouse first song was make me over and the crowd went gaga. then followed by spin. there were songs that i didn't know but nevertheless the band was awesome!

some of the songs that they played that i knew were hanging by a moment, blind, whatever it takes, take me away, so far away from where you are, you and me, disarray and broken.

i was kinda disappointed when they didn't play everything, somewhere in between and sick cycle carousel. but i went crazy when they sang first time, my favorite song! i think they sang a total of 15 or 17 songs, i lost track.

jason wade got his camera and took photos and video of the crowd. he said his going to upload it on his myspace account. how cool is that?! he also said, they had an amazing week here in philippines and he loved the people. he even said that the crowd was amazing!

overall, the whole experience was fun. another concert please! wehehe!

i still have a 'lifehouse hangover'...sing with me...

we're both lookin for something

we've been afraid to find

its easier to be broken

its easier to hide.........

we're crashing into the unknown

we're lost in this

but it feels like home...

lost in translation

this is my 8th time in KL and day 1 was a disaster.

my flight arrived 15 mins ahead of schedule so i thought i have enough time to look for the van that would pick me up. the scheduled pick up is at 1615. i was outside the arrival hall waiting... waiting... waiting...

loser conversation 1

gaiLie: excuse me, sir, do you know where's the van going to _____ condo?
guy 1: no

gaiLie: do you know...........
guy 2: do you have a ticket?
gaiLie: no, i don't have a ticket... it's already pre-arranged, i'm just waiting for it. do you know where they usually park?
guy 2: no

gaiLie: do you know....
guy 3: must go to the city first, then take a cab blah...blah..blah...

gaiLie: do you know....
guy 4: you look for a red van infront of The Coffee Bean
gaiLie: thanks (finally! someone knew what i was talking about. so, i waited for another 10mins... there was no red van in sight... i'm feeling like a real loser at that time)

frustated, exhausted and hungry... i went to our head office and asked regarding the transport provided for those attending the training. the receptionist gave me directions on how to get in touch with the one in-charge for our airport transfers.

so, i went to the bus counter... there were 2 girls asking for transport going to the same condo as i was. i introduced myself and told them, i too, was looking for the van/bus. turns out, these 2 girls will be attending the same training as mine.

i was relieved and happy but only for a few seconds, the girls will be going to the city. they gave me the number of the girl in-charge and told me that the bus will arrive 5pm. at 5, still no van in sight, so i called the 'van girl' . she told me to wait for 30mins. now, i'm really annoyed but what can i do, i don't have the address of the condo, i don't know how to get there. so i just waited for the next scheduled pick-up.

i went to mc donald's to grab something to eat, im starving. i haven't eaten anything since i left philippines. as i was about to take bite on my precious meal, my mobile rang. the 'van girl' told me that the van is already outside the airport. i quickly went outside and look for the van. but i can't find it.

loser conversation 2

gaiLie: hi, this is gail. i'm have been waiting for the van for 5 mins but i can't see anything. i'm infront of The Coffee Bean. Where did the van parked?
van girl: you go outside. look for RED van!
gaiLie: im outside! right infront of The Coffee Bean!
van girl: go outside,you see red bus? skybus?
gaiLie: yes, Sky bus. but i thought i was skyvan!
van girl: no, bus! B-U-S! red! infront of skybus is skyvan.
gaiLie: ok i'll check!

there is no van infront of the red bus, just another bus, and another bus, then another bus. no van! so, i asked the man standing nearby. someone overheard our conversation, a man approached me and said he was the driver of the van going to the condo! finally! when i saw the van, it was not red. not a bit of red in it! it's white and green. if i'm not that exhausted, i'd go back to the counter and i'll tell the van girl, where's the RED she's talking about!
what a day!

purely platonic

as mentioned on my previous post 'on an impulse' , im going to Kota Kinabalu with a friend.

did i told you that this friend is a 'he'?!

when i told my friends about it, alot of eyebrows rose.
[read: you?! travelling alone with him?! there must be something between the two of you?!]

no, we're not romantically involved. we just both love to travel. its just that he wants to go to the beach [coz he loves it so much] and as for me, i'd like to have my much needed vacay. its all about timing.

i dont need to explain myself or my actions (but here am i explaining...) nelly and i are just friends, it may sound as a cliche but its the truth. i dont have any romantic feelings for him and vice versa ... just friends, purely platonic. YES, purely platonic friendship between a guy and girl is POSSIBLE, trust me.

(my heart still belongs to someone else. yahoo! )

on an impulse

a few days ago, a friend whom i haven't spoken to for quite sometime, buzzed me on YM. he said he wants to go ko Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia next month and asked me if i'm free, without missing a beat, i said yes! and right away we scheduled our trip. after agreeing on what day we'll leave and planning our i am booking his ticket for the flight.

nellie and i both share the same passion for travel. and whenever we got a chance to talk, we often asked one another, what place are we going to visit...but we never got to do it. now finally, our travel plans pushed through.

i think, sometimes its better to do things spontaneously.

i am miss understood

i did something today that i know i can be proud of in the future. i shared the good news to someone close to me... i thought i would make them happy and proud, instead their initial reaction was disappointment.
i too was disappointed, it saddens me that this so-called "my proud moment" was interpreted in a wrong way. i just hope someday they would understand my intentions and they can be proud of what i have done.
for the meantime...i'll just continue what i started and patiently wait for results...

no regrets! i know what i did was right!

once upon a time

once upon a time... i know how to draw...

as jean baptiste de lamarck states in his theory of use and disuse... 'individuals lose characteristics they do not require (or use) and develop characteristics that are useful.'
[sigh] maybe i just didn't pay enough attention... i just didn't practice enough... now, i dont know how to draw... i'll start all over again... find out if its still within me...
