The Dawn Listers Night at Club Dredd

I have been a fan of The Dawn since I was in grade school. The first The Dawn album I had was Puno’t Dulo but I knew that their older songs such as “Enveloped Ideas”, “Love Will Set Us Free”, “Iisang Bangka” and “Salamat” were already hits before my adolescence years. Those songs also became my favorites until now. The Dawn was like The Eraserheads of my generation. If I was born earlier, probably I would be one of the fans who would frequent the bars where they have gigs. When I had the opportunity during my grade school life to watch gigs in bars, they weren’t as active like they were before. Continue reading “The Dawn Listers Night at Club Dredd”

*Updated* Toblerone’s National Thank You Day Photo Contest

Thank you. A phrase that shows gratitude and appreciation for one’s act of kindness. Isn’t it nice to appreciate someone’s effort and be appreciated as well? Thanking gives someone a special place in this world or in other words, one’s existence is being recognized.

Hearing someone say ‘thank you’ makes you giddy and fulfilled inside just like how Toblerone’s sweetness can make you giddy too. This is the reason Toblerone thought of having a National Thank You Day which started last year. Mayor Alfredo Lim even made October 20th, the official National Thank You Day.

For this year, Toblerone wants to know about the things that you should be thankful for by expressing it through photographs. Toblerone is giving away 3 Toblerone Gift Packs to your beautiful photos that show appreciation and gratitude to each other.

An Intimate Night With Sugarfree at the Dekada Concert

Ebe Dancel at Sugarfree Dekada 4

Ebe Dancel of Sugarfree

It’s not common seeing Sugarfree in an intimate set up, most especially with the Manila Symphony Orchestra. I got the chance to experience watching them up close during the Dekada concert held at the Music Museum last August 28th. It was nice seeing familiar friends in the audience area. Karla and I were seated front middle row. We didn’t expect to be seated there. Thanks to Jay DJ of Titik Pilipino for giving us super nice front row seats.

This was actually my first time to see them perform with the Manila Symphony Orchestra. I wasn’t able to watch them 2 years ago. I was working in the night shift then and my gig life was so corny. Continue reading “An Intimate Night With Sugarfree at the Dekada Concert”
