hanson live in manila

Hanson, music, events, concerts

The Hanson brothers are in Manila for their Shout It Out Tour. They are slated to perform at Smart-Araneta tomorrow, 30 March, + in Waterfront, Cebu, the next day. + as of this writing my baby sister is probably going gaga over these 3 talented lads in SM North EDSA, where they have an album signing tonight. The little man + I would’ve loved to come but we had a change of plans before the event. I would’ve loved to photograph my Jared beside these guys + hope the he will grow up to be like them in the future: well-rounded, grounded, talented + inspiring individuals.

hanson, music, events, concertsWe have loved this band since the first time they came out in 1997, the Mmmbop era. Back when people are debating whether the lead vocalist, Taylor, is a boy or a girl, we are falling deeply with this group ‘s songs + their very first album, Middle of Nowhere. It was my sister, Cel, who is hit the hardest + went on to see them perform live in Manila for the first time in 2004. 

I must say my favorite Hanson album will have to be This Time Around + my most favorite song is Love Song + this is how this goes:

We talked about love a million times it seems
The words come out our lips like we forgot what it means
We said we’d be together ’til death do us part
But we said those words with only half our hearts

In this life long love song
You can love right you can love wrong
In this love song you can love long
And if you love wrong it doesn’t mean love’s gone

What can I say, I used to be a sucker for this kind of songs…+ if I were not a mother, I would probably one of those people lining up tomorrow to see them live in concert. I would most definitely enjoy it. Oh well, I will just wait for the stories from my sister. She must have a lot as she is lucky to win a slot at the Hanson pre-concert Meet + Greet, too, I know some people are just darn lucky! 🙂

Anyway, if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you might as well cram + get one from this groupon site, they are offering the upper box tickets at half the price. Check out the deal here: https://www.ensogo.com.ph/manila/hansons-live-in-manila-03282012.html

Am sure this Hanson concert will be a blast, it’s just too bad that I cannot go to the show. But, nevertheless, there’s no reason why I cannot enjoy a Hanson show on youtube, right? I would check out a video + I’ll watch it with my little man tomorrow. 🙂

Nice To Know You Wednesdays, online q + a

Before I plunge into the chores that I need to be doing or head out to take the little man somewhere, first let me give you our 5 questions for another round of Nice To Know You Wednesdays + thank all the lovely participants of last week’s! 🙂


  1. What’s one song you dedicate to your child {or a loved one, in case you are still single :)}?
  2. What’s one thing most people do not know about you?
  3. How many tattoos do you have? If you have none, do you think of getting one?
  4. What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been?
  5. What do you do most when you are bored?

a list of things to do

motherhood, parenting 101, getting organized

I simply love lists + I have been making them since time immemorial. + don’t you just love it when every item on your list is marked done at the end of the day {or whichever time frame you set for it!}? It makes me feel like i am an efficient + accomplished mum + homemaker {not to mention, an online worker} when I see all those ticks + remarks, not to mention organized + helps me recall stuff I’d otherwise forget. 😉

Oh well, here are a few of the items on my to-do list for this week:

  • buy a rash guard for the little man. I spent a couple of hours browsing through online shops in search for a rash guard for the little man + finally managed to see some, but decides the best deal I can get is the rash guard/trunks pair we saw at the mall on Sunday + made a mental note to swing by anytime within this week so I can purchase one for my Jared.
  • do my weekly laundry. Of course, this task is present in my to-do list every single week, + until the time I finally managed to get me a new washing machine, I shall be hand washing all our soiled clothes, + making my back hurt in the process, for the time being. Not one of my most favorite chore, I tell you!
  • contact the swimming coach for Jared’s enrollment. I have been meaning to enroll the little man in a swimming class this summer + I have just found the perfect one + it is just a jeepney-ride away from our place. Hopefully this will push through, I bet my little one will enjoy this much as he loves swimming in the water.
  • update my blogs. Read: write posts after posts! I have yet to write about Denver CO real estate company + all about real estate Denver boasts of. I also need to update my travel blog as I have been neglecting it lately, focusing more on this mum blog + the little man’s blog. Hopefully I get to find the time to update all three in a timely manner as I am having thoughts of coming up with yet another one, a food blog this time! 🙂

This list can go on + on, but I do not want to bore you with it! I only wish I can accomplish all of them this week so I can get more job done next.

What is on your to-do list?
