Passport Renewal

So, here's the thing, we've been preparing for a trip abroad that's always been a dream of mine. We had it booked on the first day of this year because that's the time when airlines are giving discounted prices. And we all know that passport is needed when you have to travel abroad. 

In the country that we will be going (praying that our visa applications get approved, *fingers crossed*), passport should not expire within six months the date of your travel (the immigration might not let us pass). But ours will expire on the first quarter of 2016 and our travel departure is on November 2015. We then decided to have it renewed in order to avoid problem.

My sister set up our appointment in DFA SM Manila last October 2, she couldn't find a nearer DFA branch because of the short timeframe (we live in Makati). She chose 10AM and I'm glad she did because we were the first batch for that day and we finished for about 20 minutes only!

One Direction Live in Manila 2015

One Direction On The Road Again Tour 2015.

One Direction will be having a concert here in the Philippines next year, March 21st and 22nd 2015 at SM Moa Concert Grounds.

The English-Irish international pop sensation group is coming to Philippines for the very first time! Thanks to the promoters MMI Live, Ovation Productions and Futuretainment for inviting the world's most no. 1 best-selling artists!

One Direction has been a hit here in the country. Their songs, especially 'What Makes You Beautiful' and 'Best Song Ever' shook us like a storm. 

Don't miss this once in a lifetime experience! This will be the biggest concert scene ever next year.

Thirty Seconds to Mars Live in Manila . 29 July 2011

Closer to the Edge World Tour. 29 July 2011

It's been almost two years, July 29, 2011, Friday. 

Sang my heart out in the pouring rain at the concert together with my brother, sister and other fans.

We were drenched from head to toe throughout the concert. 

Thank God I haven't lost my voice from shouting and singing along!

Well, our camera got wet but it was worth it! We should have bought a water resistant camera. I'm glad that two of our tickets somewhat survived the rain! By the way, we were at the left side and near the front of the stage. We got lucky in our place, we heard and saw them clearly (gorgeous and talented guys!).

My sister, brother and I after the concert. Soaking wet. 
Thank you to Jared, Shannon, and Tomo!

Fans going wild. 
(I wonder what happened to their cameras? 
Ours got blurry, not useful anymore. but worth it!) 

This is how close we were on the stage.

My sister was so lucky! She got the chance to join Jared, Shannon, Tomo, and other Echelon on stage during the last song (Kings and Queens). She was beside Tomo, while all the others were standing and jumping on the front with Jared. After the song, Tomo gave the guitar pick that he used to my sister! So lucky! It was surely a night I will never forget! 
(We don't have any up-close picture of Tomo, sayang!)

Drenched tickets, guitar pick, baller and t-shirt (designed by yours truly). 
Unforgettable experience. EPIC. haha.. the rainstorm didn't stop us from having fun. It even made the concert more unforgettable!

It was the most unforgettable concert I ever experienced (as of this date).
