Born This Way Ball (Manila, Philippines)

The house of Lady Gaga’s Born Ths Way Ball Tour

For a few hours last night, I felt like a high schooler screaming my lungs out, jumping like there’s no tomorrow, and fist pumping like hell.

That’s how I love Lady Gaga. Yes, Lady Gaga.

I may not look like much of her fan, but man you don’t know how a deal breaker she is for me. I love her songs, how she speaks her mind out, how she loves her fans, and yeah maybe her fashion too (like how she deviates the norms, stuff like that).

Purchased the first day of ticket sale. Spell “FAN”

Daddy & Nebraska & Jesus Christ & Hello Kitty

I went to last night show with my sister and Hello Kitty. Only just to have a Gaga inspired fashion. Thanks to my sister by the way, for the Gaga shirt.

Last night’s show was really awesome. She’s really a great performer. I love all the songs she sang, and how she performed it. Gaga’s belting on her songs was crazy! Whether she’s crawling, lying, sitting, standing – whatever position she’s doing, her voice is superb.

The stage was unbelievable too. At first I thought it was small, but when Lady Gaga came out and started doing her thing, I guess the stage size was just perfect for the show. The castle on the stage, the costumes, the dancers were all going well together. Everything’s cool.

I always love how Gaga appreciates and thanks her fans (aka her Little Monsters). Maybe that’s why may favorite part of the show was when she rode her motorcycle, played her piano, and sang Hair. I almost cried the same time she started crying and explaining how she was affected with all the protests, how she admitted that she is sometimes irresponsible on her actions, and how she just want everyone to come together, stop bullying, and do good to each other, and be free. I know she also cried in Tokyo ball, but man I just felt her emotions. Oh, how I love her (that’s not quite obvious from the start of this blog entry, right? Lol). By the way, Gaga singing Judas = Bad ass moment.

Anyway, generally the show was awesome. I hope the second show tonight will be as  crazy as last night or even crazier! Last night was one of the best days ever in my life. Gee, I’m such a fan. I know.

More love to everyone. Paws up, Little Monsters!

UAAP Cheerdance Competition 2011

 Video from YouTube’s bjhernandez

It’s back to back to black. Thank you very much Madonna. ❤

Last Saturday was a blast for all the university students, and to not-so-much-of-a student (like me), as the UAAP Cheerdance competition took place in the Big Dome. Like the past years, the scenario of long lines, campings, line cutters, and high ticket prices from “fixers” never changed – These, for the love of school spirit.

Since I came from University of the Philippines (UP), some of my friends and I went to see the event live. We always do it every year, specially that UP is aiming to defend its crown from the last two year’s competition. This is my third time to watch them live, but I always do watch the show before on TV.

Let me share some of my snaps, and I am sorry this is the best seat I could get (thanks to Beans for my tickets!). Believe me, the tickets are just like love… It’s hard to get. Chos. 🙂

Of course in every competition, there are winners.

Congratulations to the UP Pep Squad for bagging the title once again! Your UP fans are hoping for another title next year, and and swag-er performance. Unibersidad ng Pilipinas!

BTW, obviously I was not able to take photos of the UP Pep Squad. That’s because I am too busy cheering for them, okay? Sarreh! 🙂

You And I – Lady Gaga

As you all know, I am a huge Lady Gaga fan. So here I am, taking time for posting her latest, weird and epic music video – You And I.

Watch and enjoy the trademark Gaga fashion. By the way, I am glad the dancing is back! Woohoooo!

That’s all. I love her. SUPER.

Koi at the Airport!

A few weeks ago, new members of our workforce were added at the airport. First their workplace were set, then maintenance were added, and finally they were “deployed.” Meet our new friends, the Airport Kois.

Yes, the newly added members of our team are composed of all Japanese Kois. These creatures may not be doing the same thing we do, but they bring positive atmosphere in the entire workplace.

Since they are becoming a substantial addition to our team, we thought of doing the best possible way to take care of these laid-back creatures. At first, we were always wondering who’s in-charge of feeding them. Believe it or not, nobody can answer our question whenever we ask somebody at the airport. Since that was the situation, one of our superiors decided to include the “feeding” to our daily task. That’s a great idea, by the way.

Of course we can only do that much on our part – The cleaning and maintenance will be others’ task already. I really hope people from the airport will not leave them swimming in algae. Right now, so far so good on the maintenance. They should! Because these folks are what keeping us insane and calm on our daily operations at the airport.

iLuminate! Light Yourself Up!

I have been spending my rest day surfing the internet because of bad weather. Good thing, I am still enjoying it up to this hour, and I hope boredom won’t strike me. I guess, I won’t get bored until I watch the last video I could find in the internet showcasing the new dance technique I discovered. It’s said to be called Luminography.

I am not sure if you guys notice that I love watching videos and performances which has creative choreography and dance techniques. Though I am not that of a good dancer (because I haven’t try dancing in front of many people. Fine, just once), I find this new dance technique very entertaining and mind-blowingly creative. Ladies and gentlemen, the iLuminate.

With the sick choreography, cool dance steps, and astounding lighting program, the performance looked very modern and new. Some artists are also getting to the vibe and including this on their performances – There’s Chris Brown and Black Eyed Peas, and Death Cab for Cutie.

I really hope to see more of iLuminate’s technology. I love how original the idea is, and how cool the result it delivers. More power and success to the people behind iLuminate!

Justin Bieber in Manila

So, Justin Bieber is in the Philippines right now. And his arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) momentarily stopped the operations at the arrival area.

I, myself (even not a fan) approached the area where he will be arriving. Few people from the airline, airport administration, airport police, immigration and customs are present just to catch a glimpse of the teen superstar.

I don’t like his bodyguards, though. They keep on shoving away cameras (according to some people who assisted on his arrival), and covering JB. But of course, it’s their job to protect Biebs – May that be from any serious threat, or from an egg-throwing threat (which happened in Australia, BTW). Good thing our group got a good spot to see him. Hah!

Alright, that’s all. I’m just sharing my JB experience with y’all. Enjoy the very, very short video of JB’s arrival. ‘Till next time! 🙂

My Earth Hour Activity

As we all know, last night was Earth Hour. For those who are not aware of it, it’s an event when we remind ourselves to save energy (to make a difference in saving mother earth), by switching off our lights for 1 hour. I am not sure when this thing started, but it happens every year. This is my first time to participate on this activity.

Since the lights are off, I decided to do some sort of experiment (or “self-absorbed activity” if you wanna call it that. Haha!) during the “switch-off hour.” I took some photos of my room and myself with the lights switched off. So the only source of light in these photos is the built in camera flash. Of course, with some help of Adobe Photoshop, the photos looked better. Let me share some snaps with you.

Alright! That’s it folks. Thank you for all those who joined the Earth Hour. Of course, this cause can also be done whenever and wherever. The more we practice energy conservation, the better. For those who were not able to participate this year, don’t worry, maybe you could join next year.

Let’s all give Mother Earth a helping hand.
