rainy weekend

wednesday again.my nose just itches and i feel like my body was run over (again) by a car or something.ah. anyway. the hype after the NU Rock Awards 2009 is over and i got the chance to witness it.it was my first time to watch it.even if the weather wasn't that game (at that time typhoon "Santi" already was in the manila area).I was with my friends Ben and Charles, and the gave me the ticket ABSOLUTELY FREE .heheh.But the event was hell fun. Because the event was not that packed,and it was star studded-rock stars everywhere. from the hottest names-like say, Ehra Madrigal, Ornussa Cadness, and other heavy names in the biz,i'm in absolute haven,i guess.Iza Calzado was a goddess by every inch and her co host was even a rockstar-Ramon Bautista.hahaaa. The performances were stellar-from the opening acts like Salamin, Turbogoth and Even to Up Dharma Down's Armi Millare singing the National Anthem, and to the hardcore acts like Kamikazee, Urbandub, Juan Pablo dream, Razorback,Kjwan and Chicosci. But 3 of may faves would be from Franco, Up dharma down and the one for Francis M- Ely Buendia singing "Higante" with Elmo Magalona.i couldn't help but coo at his kid siblings at the side of the stage-the youngest of the Magalona clan-they were in synch with the rap part. The downside part of the show would be the storm and how the heck are we going to go home after.But that was not part of the event-so blame it on the weather that time.hehe.
