The Script-ed

There's nothing like a concert where you can sing along in almost all the songs of the performer. This was also the case during the first ever concert of The Script in Manila, April 16, 2011. Sorry to disappoint you but this is not an account of their latest concert here. This is more like a throwback post because I wasn't able to blog it then.

I was really ecstatic when I found out this Irish band was having a concert here.One, they are one of my favorite bands, two, I know most of their songs. In fact, my all-time favorite was "The man who can't be moved" it never gets old. I immediately told my friends about it and luckily, they all loved the idea of going. 'Luckier-ly', our friend Ate Mary gave us a treat for summer and sponsored our tickets for this concert. How sweet!

On 16 April 2011, I went to the venue with my cousin. He's also going to the concert with his then girlfriend so I decided to take a hitch and we planned to just separate ways there as I join my friends.The roads then were very traffic that I felt I will almost miss the opening of the concert but of course, we can't let that happen. So we made it there. There were almost no seats, because our slots were free-seating which meant we really have to be there earlier than the show. I was with my friends, Alette, Ghe, Linette and Dennesse. Bianca was also supposed to be there but she had a family-affair to attend to then. We stayed at the SRO area as we jumped, waved our hands, screamed and banged our heads all night.

Not that I don't believe in The Script or anything, but during their first visit I didn't know they have such huge following that could fill up Araneta so I was surprised that they did and even more they surpassed the usual crowd capacity of the Big dome! It only goes to show that their music even then was already appreciated by Filipinos. All the more today right? I could attest that those who attended weren't posers because everybody was singing along the right lyrics and tune and were genuine supporters. It was nice to be doing that with them and the band. After all, the crowd added to the success of this concert to which I'm glad to be a part of.


So here goes a happy ending of the concert for me and my friends... A midnight heavy snack after the concert at Kangaroo Jack just a few steps away from the Araneta Coliseum! You see #Foodporn and/or #Foodtography was already "in" for me then. I am doing it even before it became famous. Hipster remark but true. I've been taking photos of food I eat since I don't know, since camera phone era maybe. It's just intensified now after the birth of Instagram. 

Anyway, parents gave us these treats. For my mini food review: Yummy, steak and pasta, mashed potato and nachos! Click the photo for a larger view. I say 4.5/5 for Kangaroo Jack. Good food and very affordable. Plus they serve food even if it's already late night, I guess this is for the Cubao branch only. Other branches do well too, only, they follow the regular mall hours which usually close at 9/10PM.

I am singing If you ever come back by The Script for The Script as I end this post.
