The Rock and Roll Life + I Got Chainsmoked!

August 24, 2016
Life is … attending two amazing concerts on two consecutive days nights! Have I mentioned that the first night involved 6 international acts? 
One of the most awesome Thursday and Friday nights of my life! The highlights – Third Eye Blind and The Chainsmokers!

In the Mix: August 18, 2016 – MOA Arena
In the Mix Concert is one music festival that brought together international acts – The 1975, Third Eye Blind, Panic! At the Disco, James Bay, Elle King, and Twin Pines. I went there for The Third Eye Blind, but I got home an instant fan of The 1975 and Panic! At the Disco! They are such great performers!

my camera’s speaker and mic had gone berserk after it went diving to a water tub last year 😀 

It was surreal standing in a moshpit area, listening to Third Eye Blind perform the songs that you only got to listen to in a cassette player when you were growing up (influenced by my sister). I wish they got a little more playful with their performance but they are releasing a new album. Who is excited for that?  
The Chainsmokers: August 19, 2016 – MOA Arena
MOA Arena in Manila is starting to become my favorite place. The following night – we went back (ahah! same crew!) for the Chainsmokers one-night only concert!

The crowd was much younger that night. But so happy to be and see this bunch!

We got Lower Box Standing tickets but we wouldn’t trade it with the VIP tickets because we got the best spot during the concert! The VIP area looked too crowded that people couldn’t even dance. We got a special area where we got a good view of the show, crowd, lights and production. 

Draw me Roses? 

Shout out to #MMILive! Thank you! 

My mom always complains about ratty jeans and shirts I buy 😀
