Musical Notes

The Slinky and Hed Kandi parties are back-to-back weekend events in Boracay organized by Big Fish, the same company that brought Paul van Dyk here in Manila last December 9. Slinky happened last March 26 while Hed Kandi will be this Saturday, April 2.

The World Shakes Anew

5:16 am PHT

There was another large earthquake that struck almost exactly five hours ago on the same fault line as the earthquake that struck December 26 last year. Fortunately, there were no tsunamis reported from this 8.7 magnitude quake.

Holy Week Musings

5:54 pm PHT

So it’s Holy Week once more. I’ve almost always stayed at home during Holy Week and never gone out of town or wherever especially on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. I’m a bit envious of all the people heading out to the beaches, whether in Puerto Galera or Boracay. But, I don’t feel it’s an appropriate way to spend religious holidays, especially the culmination of Lent.

The Irony of the Movement

1:16 pm PHT

I expected more from the event that called itself The Movement. Sadly, it failed to deliver what it promised on the promotional material:

Clubbing is getting classier and more sophisticated. Clubs abroad such as the Supperclub in Amsterdam have made elegance and clubbing synonymous. It’s now time to show your style, sip your cocktails and unwind to the soothing sounds of a more refined groove within a chic atmosphere.

I Found Gold…

11:04 pm PHT

For the month of March, I’m spending more of my time in Robinson’s Galleria instead of SM Megamall, thanks to the 1-month gift certificate my sister got from Gold’s Gym where she’s enrolled. I’ve been going to the gym for over a year now and during the past year, most of it has been spent at Excel Fitness Center at the fifth floor in Megamall.

The Chillout Project: House Sessions 2

6:16 am PHT

As I mentioned before, I’m going to do a review of Anton Ramos’ The Chillout Project: House Sessions 2. I’ve seen this album months before but it was only two weekends ago that I finally decided to buy it, thus formally starting my CD collection. (Heh.)

Sunday at Tagaytay

12:27 am PHT

Yesterday my sister celebrated her birthday. And so on a whim, my mother decided a few days ago to catch the 7:30 a.m. mass at the Adoration Convent of Divine Mercy (a.k.a. the Pink Sisters Convent) in Tagaytay.

They’ve Shown Us Love

10:34 pm PHT

A bunch of us watched the Jars of Clay Show You Love concert here in Manila (Araneta Coliseum) last Wednesday. I think it was the first time I really watched a concert of my own volition (and the first time I visited Gateway mall). The mall was nice enough. The Jars of Clay concert was even better.
