SM North Skydome is turning out to be such a memorable venue for me. Last May, I got to see American Idol Season 7 winner David Cook there when he promoted his and David Archuleta’s Manila concert. Last Friday, I got to actually thank Ely Buendia, the man who has written many of the songs that mean a lot to me. Soundtrack of my life, I regard those songs.
I learned about Pupil’s Wildlife Special Edition launch from Tina-chan. We easily decided on going despite her having an org orientation on that day and my having Nihongo final exam the following day. I left the school around 5 PM, and told Tina that I would probably wait in one of the coffee shops in Sky Garden. Once in Sky Garden, I remembered our DC meet-and-greet experience, so I decided to buy the CD and just wait inside the venue so that I could get us good seats. The Dorques was doing soundcheck when I got in. Then, rain fell heavily, and with heavy rains came terrible traffic and delay in schedule. It was a good thing that I brought all my Nihongo study materials with me.
Pupil of course is worth the wait. Yan Yuzon must be one of the warmest band members I’ve ever seen. He got the party started when he invited the audience to come closer to the stage, which of course we gladly did. Ely did some neat dance moves (Note to self: Look for videos of Ely dancing). The band performed not only songs from Wildlife but also from their first album Beautiful Machines. すごい！
What almost ruined it for me was the two annoying guys who kept shouting “Alapaap” when the audience was asking for an encore. I really wanted to scowl at them for being immature. Hay naku talaga!
To my pleasant surprise, Pupil did my favorite Michael Jackson song “Man in the Mirror.” とてもたのしかった！
Remember my 100? Realizing 38.1, I am starting to believe that everything is possible.
