My blogging hiatus..almost done

After a short break from blogging, I will be doing my best to update my blog page with new stuff, events, and some news (relevant to my likings of course). It's been a very hectic month at the office, considering we have to meet the expectations of our clients as one of the best tech support there is to date. I am going to train for a new field next week..after Installation, we are gonna tackle Digital Imaging..sounds exciting but we will see..

Once I get back to my hyper excited blogging spirit..I will be telling much about latest things that happened, at work, home, or even the web. For now, I really have to rest..I'm losing weight again..and it's not a good sign.

This photo was taken during our Back2Skul Rally at the office. I gotta dress like a Korean/Japanese/Hogwarts exchange student IDK...LOL

Usher in Manila

The very first concert I attended in Manila. Last July 9, 2010, Usher had a concert in SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds to entertain his Filipino fans and to promote his latest album Raymond V Raymond. The show started a bit late (supposed to start at 8) with an opening act from South Border and Nina.

The show started an hour late than the scheduled event time. Usher started the show with Caught Up which gave everyone the hype to sing with him. But the wait was worth it. Usher performed a total of almost 15 songs which included all of his all time fave hits (Caught Up, Yeah!, Love in This Club, Confessions, Nice and slow, etc.). We purchased general admission tickets for Php600..far from the stage but the projectors provided up a close up for the performances. And guess how much the VIP tickets cost? It's amount that can only local actors and elites can afford of course. The concert was jammed pack with almost more than approximately 3000 to 5000 people. And me, Edz, and Ching were among those who enjoyed the night with Usher's awesome dance moves and voice of course.

Here's a video of his finale song, "OMG"

4 days getaway from stress: the Short Vacation in Manila

After 2 months, I was back in Manila for a short but fulfilling vacation (I was there last May for the DDR General Assembly). Thankful for my supervisor for approving my 2 days leave which 'sandwiched" my 2 days-off during the weekend.

Me and Edz stayed at Ching's (her college classmate) apartment in Villamor, Pasay just near NAIA Terminal 3. We started Friday night off with a blast. And guess what it is? A concert in SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds by none other than Usher. The program started with South Border and Nina performing a couple of songs and later on 14 to 15 songs from Usher himself. It was a fun night, even if we did only get to have general admission tickets, the experience was really really great, seeing one of my idols perform on stage.

The next day was Enchanted Kingdom day. But this day doesn't seem to get better. It started off when we had a small argument way back in Makati before leaving for Laguna. It took us 2 1/2 hours before we left the place due to an misunderstanding between us (passengers) and the driver. They promised to leave at exactly 3:40PM (we were there since 2:30PM) even if the vehicle is not full but they didn't. So we were behind schedule. We arrived at EK around 5PM where it was drizzling. My camera malfunctioned during the said trip (a usual malfunction for Canon cameras). We haven't had a chance to go to Watercamp in Cavite to saty for an overnight because of time constraints and lastly, our taxi was caught by the traffic enforcers after a wrong turn on our way home. This is indeed not a good day to remember, but funny if you think of it LOL.

Sunday was DDR day again for me. Edz and Ching went shopping while I head down to Glorietta 4 in Makati City to meet with Edison and of course my DDR Barkada in Timezone. It was a fun 6 hour gameplay and I almost got my first AAA, but I didn't..what a frustration! grrr..

We went home in Bacolod a day after which was July 12th at 4pm. It was a fun weekend stress free from work. I'll be back soon in Manila this October and hopefully to Baguio for the DDR General Assembly in the Northern Luzon area.

New DDR X2 Poster..and 3 more days to go...

A month ago, Konami had already announce the final date of release for DanceDanceRevolution X2 (AC) in Japan. It will be on July 7, 2010..and hopefully soon here in the Philippines. I remembered two years ago when DDR X was released, it came to the Philippines just a week after. Hopefully it would happen again. I'll be in Manila by that time..but I think it would arrive the latter weeks..

Here's the new poster I saw in How I wish I could print this out and put it in my room..hehe

Oh, that reminds me of the article I need to create about the said events to be posted on (on its first issue) e-zine website for DDR Philippines..deadline is next week so I have to finish it by this weekend =)
