From Suite 337 of MOA Arena: The Vamps, Before You Exit, The Tide Concert in Manila 2016 
Back when I was younger and the only Boybands I knew are the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, I did not experience the ultimate fan girling moment of attending a concert. 
I had to wait until the then Boybands reunite for a concert and for me to earn my own money to live the ultimate fan dream.
Last night, we arrived in SM Mall of Asia Arena with the sea of fun teens waiting for one of the ultimate Boyband acts in Manila. Imagine 3 Boybands performing in one night. The big names – The Vamps, Before You Exit and the Tide. 
The Tita in me was clueless about these kids. All I know – they are real bands who play their instruments and not just dance + they are a bunch of good-looking kids. 
We found our spot at Suite 337 care of KitKat (thank you Rodel for tagging me along!). It was my first time to watch a concert from this view. I prefer VIP or Lower Box seats but looking from the balcony from where I stood last night, I thought we got the perfect view of what is happening in the stage. I love the view of the playful lights, dancing crowd and cute talented boys slaying the stage.

I just enjoyed the show and just took random photos. Sorry guys, this is all the Lenovo Vibe Shot 3x zoom camera can do for last night. Security was so strict that they asked guests to leave their tablets, cameras and tripods. 
On a lighter (and chocolatey) note, we got comfortable couches and boxes of KitKat to enjoy while waiting for the next band and we got our own washroom and minibar #ruthapproved!

(1) Suite 337 suit us well (2) we were like – there are kids in front of the condo having karaoke! (3) Thank you Kitkat! (4) Having a break with David Guison – yes I am #guisonatic! (5) Thank you Manila!!! – been wanting to do that!
The three bands were amazing!  The crowd was fun! I danced to the beat of their songs and sang with them on their covers.  I think I am an instant fan. Adding these bands to my playlist along with Justin Bieber :p
Thank you Kitkat and Nescafe for the #concertbreak! 
Shout out to Rodel for tagging me along. Hi to Yuki too!
