Before 2009 Ended, Friends (Re)United and Wincy is the New Mong

2:31 am, 1st of January 2010. Happy new year and thanks for being a part of my 2009!

Generally, 2009 has been good to me. My career and personal life is doing well and so far I haven’t encountered any big problems yet. Hopefully this will be a refreshing start in my career.


Days before 2009 year ended, I was fortunate to have spent it with my different sets of friends. First is the wedding of my blogger friends, Jay De Jesus and Aileen Apollo-De Jesus last 26th December. This is the official merging of Google Philippines and 😀 (not in the business sense, ok? hehe). Congratulations to the both of you and may you have beautiful children! Although your bridal car did not arrive on your wedding day, what’s important is that you were able to say your “I do’s”. Sue them afterwards so that they’ll have a dose of their bitter medicine. 😉 Continue reading “Before 2009 Ended, Friends (Re)United and Wincy is the New Mong”

Rock Bosch 2 at Saguijo Cafe: Pupil, Sandwich, Chillitees, Sugarfree, Itchyworms, Southsuperhighway, Top Junk and Join the Club

The second leg of the series of benefit gigs for Anabel Bosch happened last January 9 at Saguijo Cafe in Makati. The band line up was really good and because of that Saguijo was filled with people as early as 8 pm. Usually the place gets filled up around 11pm -12 midnight. And the funny thing was, the Eraserheads Mailing Listers (a.k.a Circus Mailing Listers) actually filled half of the place. Of course even though the band had already disbanded we would still support the individual member’s respective bands and at that night Sandwich (Raymund’s band) and Pupil ( Ely’s band) was there to perform. There aren’t any chairs left to sit so Karla and I decided to stand infront of the mic. (If you have been in Saguijo, you know what I’m talking about) Well, Saguijo is just a small place and there’s no stage so from where I am standing at that time, I was literally infront of the vocalist ( So for more picture opportunity for me! 😉 )

This was a Rock Ed gig but Gang Badoy wasn’t there yet so there were proxy hosts for her. They already have sponsors that night such as Slenda and Enduranz, so the hosts had some games and gift packs to give away. I actually won a Slenda DVD (it’s an advantage being right infront of the host haha). Well anyway, here is the order of the bands: South Superhighway, Sugarfree, Top Junk, Chillitees, Itchyworms, Pupil, Sandwich and Join the Club.

Elmer Ona of South Superhighway or SLEX 🙂

Sugarfree – Ebe Dancel (vocals), Jal Taguibao (guitars) and Kaka Quisumbing (drums)

South Superhighway is a band composed of members namely Elmer Ona on vocals/guitars, Ben Riego on guitars, Vhall Riddle on bass and Shinji Tanaka on drums. It’s my first time to see them perform. Their songs are feel good, not so heavy.  After SLEX, Sugarfree performed their old songs like Burnout, Kwarto, Prom etc. They also performed a new song entitled “Hay Buhay” from their newest album which will be released this year. It’s a positive song about life. Ebe even forgot the title when I asked him about it. hehe.  Have a sneak peek of it below 🙂 Continue reading “Rock Bosch 2 at Saguijo Cafe: Pupil, Sandwich, Chillitees, Sugarfree, Itchyworms, Southsuperhighway, Top Junk and Join the Club”

Admit ONE gig: Reunion fever is on!

I know that this is a super late post but I will still post it for my sake 🙂

Even Admit One is riding the bandwagon for reunion gigs. Last Wed, August 20th Admit One was in Saguijo Cafe in Makati. Bands that performed were: Cambio, Sugarfree, Twisted Halo, Fatal Posporos and Blast Ople. It was the night of reunions you know why? Sugarfree performed with their former drummer Mitch.  It was nostalgic of my college days because that’s the time when Mitch was still there. Sugarfree was singing their songs from “Unang Araw” their first album.

( Original Sugarfree line up performing “Burnout”)

Saguijo Virgin No More!

Another bumming moment with Karla today! hehe.. After work, my teammates and I decided to go to starbucks and just hang out. Well, I actually initiated that since I know I will be waiting for Karla to finish her work and will be able to meet up with me by 6 pm. So my teammates left eventually while Karla and I still continued to hang out at Starbucks. Then had dinner at Mixxlada then hung out in Greenbelt. We have to really do something cause we’re waiting for John ( Karla’s ex-officemate) to arrive so that we could all go to Saguijo to watch a gig sponsored by Nu 107’s In the Raw.

It was my first time to be in Saguijo.. I must say it was my virgin moment. hehe. The bands that performed were Traumaligno ( I got ur cd guys! hehe listened to it, ganda! astig!), Ursa Minor, Paraluman and Queso. Well unfortunately we weren’t able to catch Traumaligno and Paraluman. We only got to see Ursa Minor and Queso. With Queso, i’m glad that I was able to catch their performance of Mottaka.. Cool! Just had 2 beers, 1 can of red horse and a bottle of San mig light. I arrived home abt 2 am.
