one of my favorites in 2011 – the incubus concert

incubus, events, music,

One of my favorite things in 2011 is the July 27 Incubus concert in Manila. It was one of the best events I’ve been in, a perfect me-time. It was a good thing my brother agreed to babysit the little man for me so I get to enjoy this concert sans the usual worries of mums whenever we go out on our own + leave the kiddos at home.

I have not posted about this event before + here is the post that’s been sitting on my hard drive since September:

 If Not Now, When? Incubus Live in Manila

It was either my birthday came exactly a month earlier or Christmas arrived 5 months in advanced! That is what I am feeling while we braved the rain + traversed the wet road en-route to the Smart -Araneta Center in Cubao on the rainy, Thursday afternoon of July 28. My most favorite band is coming to play live tonight + I was all psyched to rock out the entire evening. I was only too grateful that my bro, Ken, agreed to take the child-minding post whilst this mum had a great time.

+ this mum gets to see incubus live in manila!

This is just a very brief post to let you know there will be silence from this end for awhile…well, at least until Incubus‘ Big Dome concert is over…I shall be heading South-bound in a few hours to watch my favorite band again + I am just so, so excited! Good thing Ken agreed to look after my little man while I am away, thanks bro, I owe you one! 😀

I will be back with a detailed post on how I ended up with a front row ticket to this would-be sold out concert + with loads of concert stories accompanied with photos (I just hope I’ll be sensible enough to take some :))

I only wish I can tag Jared + Jared’s dad along but I will be with my two sissies who were lucky enough to win 2 tickets for later’s event.

It is 5 hours before the much-anticipated show of the year + this mum needs to get ready, so I’ll be seeing you in awhile.

For now, I leave you with an invitation to sign up as sponsors to my son’s blog. I am cooking up something for our birthday month next month + I do hope you will join us. Thank you in advance 🙂

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, I sure will!

musings about july

Just a few more days + this month will be over soon, but I haven’t posted about the reasons why I was looking forward to July this year + why I simply love this month 😉

Here, let me count the reasons why:

  1. I simply love July since a month from now my little man, Jared, will be turning a big two, + his blog, jared’s little corner, will be celebrating its birthday along with mum 😀 + although there won’t be no fancy celebration this year, it will not make the event less exciting or make me look forward to it less. We might go out-of-town even for just a day on Jared’s big day or the days nearing that date 😀
  2. The last installment to the epic saga, Harry Potter + the Deathly Hallows comes out in the cinema this month. We have been highly anticipating it + although it will be a bittersweet experience to watch our hero for the last time on the big screen, it is something I wouldn’t want to miss! Long live Potter!
  3. This month is also the month my fave, incubus, will be coming down to Manila for a concert at the Big Dome on the 28th + though I haven’t got a ticket yet (which I shall be posting soon as I got one!) this is something I really look forward to! This early I have to be good to my siblings so they will look after the little man whilst mum watches a concert 😀
  4. A lot of exciting + new things are happening in the blogosphere, with loads of giveaways too, and although I was spending more hours in front of the PC + spending less + less hours sleeping, I definitely have no complaints..well except that I hope my pc can cope up with all the things I have to do online, that is! 🙂

So, what are you looking forward to this month?
