Ok. So a little disclaimer, please DO NOT EXPECT that this is an informative article about the thing because it isn't.

For set list and information go here, because my friend is far better than I am in this department.

Anyway, so this is officially one of the best things that happened to me this year... if not THE BEST that happened to me during the first half. I was really really excited about this event ever since that announcement where Kiiyan even mentioned Philippines. LIKE WHOAH. WAIT. HOLD EVERYTHING. IS THIS THE REAL LIFE OR IS THIS JUST FANTASY?!

ehem. So anyway, bought tickets as soon as possible and I was so excited I even drew some shit.

I know that it is nearly impossible to see Granrodeo live here in the Philippines so this is everything I could ever hope for.

If I should summarize that night in one sentence... it's glorious. JUST PURE HAPPINESS. Kishow's vocals were on point and amazing. My love him was renewed in every song and I was just reminded why and how this man had captivated me for five years.

I could go on and on how amazing it was but it would be repetitive and I don't have the words for these emotions.

AH. MY HEART. Oh yeah.. I bought some merch because JUST TAKE MY MONEY! You think I was kidding when I said I don't care how much Granrodeo's stuff are?! You think this was a game?

So yeah... I bought some merch because these are the only ones available. I didn't buy the towel... because of reasons I can't remember... (probably budget because I needed to eat? Idk.)

Still can't even. OMFG. I want to have that day all over again. Please.

Boracay Weekend 2016

Back with a vengeance! Hahaha not really. 

So my officemates dragged me to Boracay and with the lure of calamansi muffin I agreed. It was not a wise decision considering I'm saving for my trip this October. In the end, I did not regret the decision. 

The first time I went to Boracay I had little budget and the weather was rainy. It was quite an experience and I still remember how much the raindrops hurt when it hits your face on a speeding boat. 

I guess it's quite appropriate to say that I was back with a vengeance and my goal is to enjoy this trip as much as I can. 

I did! 

The weather was amazing considering that the past few days were rainy. Just look at that white sand against blue. AMAZING!

Parasailing. Underwater helmet diving. Banana boat. ATV. YES I TRIED THEM ALL!


Lol the fishes looked photoshopped, but I swear they're real. Since this is my second time helmet diving I was not that scared anymore. ^o^/ 

Parasailing though... this was a different story. I know I wanted to do this and agreed to it, even paid for it! But all the time I was very very scared. I asked myself: when was the last time I said 'yes' to something that scares the living hell inside me?

"Are you scared?"
"Good. Let's do this."




Look at that fear in my grip. Was it worth it? YES. Would I do it again? YEAH. Will I be scared if I do it again? FUCK YES.


I know I've been snorkeling many times already but this must be the first time I actually enjoyed the activity. Why? Contact lenses yo! This was the year I decided that I'll wear contacts when I swim in the ocean. So far I had no incident. 

I love all the activities but there was something about the ATV that made me really happy that I signed up for it. ROUGH ROAD RIDING YEAH!

Of course we still manage to chill and enjoy the island at day and at night: Fire dancing, Gmax (I only watched people get flung. I'm not that brave. ) and the sights and sounds of the island. 

Finally, here's a video of the whole thing compiled and edited by the awesome sir DJ. Thanks man!
