Taylor Swift Live in Manila!

Taylor Swift Live in Manila
Araneta Center, Cubao
February 19, 2011

     It was November of last year when we heard that Taylor Swift will have a concert here in the Philippines. We immediately asked Ticketnet regarding the ticket prices and originally decided to avail of Upper B tix since the other tickets are costly. Unfortunately, they were sold out. Good thing that there are still available slots for general admission (Taylor Swift is indeed popular!).

Four general admission tickets ^_^
     We were already in Cubao by 4pm and planned to go to Gateway Mall first but decided to line up instead after seeing the loooong queue for the concert. We ate snacks (McDo haha!) in line. Crammed the burger and fries in the bag since we ran out of time.. It was our turn to go in before we knew it.. Hehe! :)

 Araneta before the concert :)

     We braved a mini stampede before we got inside Araneta. General admission was already full when we had our seat (5 o-clock position from center of the stage, not bad!). We waited for about 2 hours before the concert started.

16th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Up, Up, and Away
Clarkfield, Pampanga

     We've been wanting to go to the hot air balloon festival since last year. Finally, our most awaited trip pushed through thanks to Tonie! :)

 Our tickets to the Fiesta :)

     We spent the night at Tonie's and left at 3am, had breakfast at Jolibee NLEX, arrived at Clark Field, Pampanga at around 5.30am just in time to see the hot air balloons being prepped for take off! We squeezed our way through the throngs of people to get a closer view of the vibrant balloons. 

 Hot air balloons preparing for take off!

Give me some fire! :D

     We liked the inverted balloon, darth vader’s head, the barn and the giant snowman hot air balloons! Too bad darth vader’s flight was short-lived.. too big? haha! :D Here are our shots of the balloons...
