i'll make this quick coz it's late and i need to wake up really early.
Fete was located at Metrowalk Ortigas. i kinda felt i was too old to even go there but actually, i went there to expose my new friends who rarely go out from laguna. i was curious, too, what the scene would look like. it was quite dissapointing because it was not as grandiose as it was back in 2003 and 2004. the bands were fewer and the zoning was weird. we didn't get to see the reggae since we had to pay for the entrance fee.. nevermind! LOL. we just stayed outside and listened. at pop alt stage, i've heard music fresh to my ears. nice! mostly, we stayed in the pop alt stage for calalily (aiza's crazy about kean, the singer). took pictures. i never payed attention to calalily's music until last night. they were great.
@world music. very very few artists. no cynthia alexander, makiling ensamble, bayang and the whole gang.... but kadangyan was there. root of nature has a superb percussionist. absolutely superb. but i think, domeng's better still.
@metal rock. heavy security. it was like going to a place with no tomorrow, like a death valley. everyone was wearing black. the stage was covered with a protective net so that the artist won't get hit by UFOs thrown by crowd.
i shall post another entry for another topic about what had happen. i'm too sleepy to continue. ok good night to me. :)

ok... so here are some blog entries from mulitply which i failed to import here. :)

(X-sign means, no more BP. it was the end of the road for us. naks.)I was reading through my old entries and it felt like opening an old closet jam-packed with old memories. :) i have an entry about our last meeting with BP with a picture on it. so i thought of posting this picture here which was taken in 2007. we've never had a complete picture except the fete 2004 photo posted in the newspaper. good old days.
here are other old pictures which i've never posted anywhere, i guess. haha
wala lang magawa. hahaha. ;)
As we spoke and ate on the table, grilling time was up for me... one asked.. " e ikaw, nakikita mo ba ang sarili mo as a nurse habang buhay?"... i told them..."hindi." ..."e ano sa tingin mo ang magiging trabaho mo in the long run?"..." ewan ko."..."aaah.. nako.." (with the facial expression that may have said..tsk tsk tsk. tanda mo na hindi mo pa alam)...and i said, kind of defensively," pero hindi ako worried. di katulad ni ***, na parang din pa nya alam kung ano ang gusto nya talaga."... and she once again asked, "e ano nga yung nakikita mo?" .... ok so i was getting uncomfortable with the question coz i dont have an answer or not sure what i was supposed to answer. stupidly i said, "kusinera" with a nervous laugh... and the other one said,"bakit hindi ka nalang maging writer.. para kang anak ni bob ong magsulat...".
i don't understand why i got uneasy. they are my friends. i should be comfortable telling them anything. And then i realized, i was talking to people who have kick-ass designations, who earn mega bucks and who know exactly what they really really love in life.
I got uneasy... then bitter... then felt like crying... but of course i didn't look like it.
the next day, i was still thinking of what had happened... i felt bad that i have mentioned ****'s name, comparing her to me... i felt bad that i was not able to explain myself clearly.
it was nice talking to ert a bit about it online. at least i was able to share my feelings now. it was a breather. it's not that i composed some answer to defend myself... i just realized that the reason why i don't see myself as a nurse is because, stupid as it may sound, i still associate 'nurse' as a katulong lang of the doctors (which is super wrong talaga). And to speak the truth, i really can't still see what i'll be in the future... i'm still wishing/ hoping that this is my calling. i do love the medical field now. I'm not like yi who sees herself 20 years from now. Not like ert who (wanted to be and) is now a teacher. not like mygz who likes computers ever since she was born and who has a beautiful son and a husband. I'm just me... and 'me', for sure, will have a mark in this world someday.

I love this picture courtesy of mygz. It looks like a poster of a feel- good movie. :) Mygz is leaving today for Singapore. I'm really happy that she has recovered from all the needles and chemo and radiology therapies she had.
As this gathering was for mygz's going away party, it was also a welcoming party for ert comingfrom indonesia.
It was so nostalgic... the 4 of us, together + our beautiful godson, ULAN. :) haha... just a thought, we looked like fairy godmothers here. LOL!
Mygz is continuously growing her hair back, ayi had a new hair cut and ert just had her hair colored.
Ulan was so adorable. :)
I wonder when this will happen again. hrmm.

I had my 3rd shot today. ate rochie dropped me off in front of CDH.
I want to go somewhere different today or do something, but I can't think of any place to go. And I've spent too much yesterday already when ate Aimee and I went to Shangrila Mall. Ran out of tickets for the La Pianiste movie. So, we just went trippin on food.
While walking back home, i was thinking of what my friends had told me. they said they could set me up with someone i could date... it's funny coz i think they're frustrated for me. anyway... i refused because of a couple of reasons. (1) i'm kind of shy meeting up with new people (2) i may not have the resources to communicate constantly, unless he'll go online. texting could be quite expensive (3) time could be an issue. must be focused on studies (4) i'd feel weird, being set up like that. i mean of course there would be some kind of expectation... what if we dont like each other? kakahiya naman don sa nag set up...
the term set-up is a weird word. i mean, relationships just happen, right? i know it's just a term. but it's weird
such a nega star... but i was actulally giving it a second thought. i felt like texting my friend and saying yes to it. why not?! right? it could help having some kind of inspiration. thing is, i don't have my friend's number. oh well, i hope that someone could be medically inclined somehow. it would be nice to talk about medical stuff, too. but musically/ artistically inclined people are still super fun to be with.
we had sort of a BP reunion last sunday. ayi, japs, domeng and melay werent there, sadly.we watched JP play. he was really good with the hand and 'toe' choreography he did while playing. haha.
i missed the bp boys. was nice seeing them again all grown up. ahaha
it was great catching up on stories with muffet an d burn. stayed with them til Shangrila closed.
that sort of gathering may happen after a 3- 5 years again. maybe.
