Full version of July 29, 2011. (Just pass through it if you want to. :)) I don't mind. :D)
Since I didn’t properly post the whole entire thing on what happened yesterday, I’m posting it in a more detailed manner.
Hannah and I agreed to go to the MRT with her brother, to go to Trinoma. It was a pretty long ride. Despite the fact that it was super long, and crowded, we got to talk about a lot of things during the train ride to Trinoma. We talked about our experiences when we were in France, our experiences during high school, and personal stuffs.
After almost…an hour of traveling, we finally reached our destination. WE WERE ABSOLUTELY PSYCHED UP! (I literally used psyched up a lot, because I really couldn’t think of anything then. :)) ) And we ate dinner in Jollibee. And saw a really…REALLY big banner of the event. So I took a photo.
After that, we went from place to place looking for the Mindanao Parking Lot, and when we were at the entrance, we both looked at each other, Hannah then asked me, “…Are you ready?" and I looked at her and said, "Heck yeah I am!”. We slowly walked through the bridge, trying to solemnly remember every scenery we can absorb right through our brains. And while we were walking, I asked Hannah if I can take a photo of her. And Here it is :D :
When we finally reached the parking lot, we saw this…HUGE sign which says “Silver" and it looked kinda awesome, lotsa tough-looking guys, but when we were trrying to get in, they’re sweet and funny. There were two guards in one line, One guard is giving out the instruction of what to do and NOT to do in the concert. The other one asks for our tickets. I was having a tough time closing my umbrella. And the first guard still let me in and told me to close the umbrella inside the concert, and the second guard asked for my ticket, I was having a hard time (AGAIN) to get my ticket out, and he was like “Hala, nawawala na ma’am" and I was scared, but then I got my wallet and just laughed. Then when he was checking out my ticket, I told him "Sir, dapat nasa Gold section ako, kasi gold ang kulay ng ticket." We both laughed and yea. :)) Me and Hannah finally went inside! :D
We finally saw the huge stage, and a lot of stalls. We were shrieking and running and was full of excitement. We bought disposable raincoats (but I ditched mine’s even before the concert. Since it was pretty useless, my bag got wet and so did I. Hannah eventually ditched her’s at the start of the concert.)
I guess, one of the best part of the concert was when the people from the silver tickets were complaining at the people opening their umbrellas.
I remember sentences like…
“WOW. GANDA NG VIEW! PURO UMBRELLA!" ;
“GREEN! GREEN! GREEN! *waving their hands downwards as if playing in “Pera o Bayong* (HAHA! PWEDE NG MAGING GAMESHOW!)*” ;
“RED AND WHITE! RED AND WHITE! RED AND WHITE! *same gesture as “Green”* ;
“ANG GAY NG YELLOW! GAY NG YELLOW! GAY NG YELLOW!" ;
“UY! TINGNAN NIYO YUNG NAKA NATIONAL OH! DONYA ANG GAGI!" :)))))))))
It was seriously funny, me and Hannah were also shouting when a lot of people were shouting.
And in that one hour, there’s the pink girls, the smokers, and the epic people behind us.
The opening number was some local band. Me and Hannah thought it was them, until we heard the guy’s voice, we were like “…WHO THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS?!” “WE PAID 2K FOR THIS?! BRING OUT THE REAL DEAAAAAL!" During their entire performance, Most of the people, were more caught up, screaming for the others to lower their umbrellas, this went on for like….FOREVER. XD (Well, until the concert started anyway. :P)
After an hour and a half, we were soaking wet, I felt numbness on my legs, and I was freezing. But I didn’t mind. I told Hannah “I swear, this should be worth my time. I’m ending up having, Pneumonia, Throat Cancer, and Lung Cancer. It better be worth it." (and HEY! IT WAS WORTH IT. :D) She then said, "I bet this is going to be one of their memorable concerts, I mean, COME ON! PEOPLE HERE BOUGHT TICKETS, AND EVEN THOUGHT IT’S RAINING HARD, WE ARE JUST TOO DEDICATED TO THEM!”
At the beginning of our concert, They first sang, “Beautiful Lie”, “Attack”, and “Alibi" after that, they changed to Acoustics. and God…It was solemn and..awesome. I really didn’t know what to type, it was just…so heavenly. I mean…His voice was just so…soft then epic at most parts.And at some point of the song…I think it was…Either “This is War”, or “Kings and Queens”. I carried Hannah. Like Literally, carried her on my shoulders. :)) Even though It kinda hurt a bit. I didn’t mind. It’s just…I know how much she really wanted to see Jared, so I told her “Hannah, Come on. I’ll carry you." She was like "No Karinna, It’s fine.” I then said “It’s either I carry you, or you carry me." She then said "Are you sure?" and I said "Yep.”. I knelt down and jokingly asked her to marry me XD. And then I started carrying her for a short while. (People might think I’m a Lesbi or something, cuz’ people are starting to stay away from me. XD But hey, I’d ruin my own reputation for a friend. :) )
Jared talked to all of us. and said “PHILIPPINES! *people shouted* I hope you guys are going to love the songs, Extend your arms up and reach for them rainclouds! *people screaming*”
“Do all you Filipino people eat Noodles? *people screaming yes* *Me: HECK YEA! ALMOST EVERYDAY OF OUR LIVES!!* Well I just had Noodles for breakfast this morning. *person at my back: PANCIT CANTON KA NA LANG EVERYDAY!*”
“PHILIPPINES, IKAW NA!”
“Where the Fuck is Shannon?”
“I had a wonderful night tonight.”
“YOU ALL WERE FUCKING AMAZING!”
“I want you guys to dance around like a complete maniac, and Jump higher too!”
“GET FUCKING CRAZY!”
"I’m glad to find another home."
But like I said in my earlier post, the most epic part was when Jared asked this guy what to say to his Filipino fans, he just said “Mahal!" and yea. :)) we were like "OO NGA! MAHAL ANG TICKET! KANTA KA NAAAA!”
And the funny thing during the concert was when, Jared was singing he part “Do you really want….Do you really want me?” One girl was screaming “YESSS!!" and then a dude shouted "OO NGA SABI EH! AKIN KA NA LANG! YUNG SHIRT MO RIN! TOL I LOVE YOU!" =))))))))))
Anyway, I’ll just post the songs I remember.
- A Beautiful Lie
- Search and Destroy
- This Is War
- 100 Suns
- Vox Populi (A Call to Arms)
- The Kill
(Instrumental Intermission by Shannon)
(Back to normal playing of songs)
- The Kill
- Search and Destroy
- Closer to the Edge
- Kings and Queens
And those were the songs that they played during the concert that I remember. But yea, overall great. :D Here are some pictures to prove it. :))
At the end of the concert, we were desperate to buy the cd’s in the stalls since, if you buy a cd, apparently, you’ll have a shirt to come with it.
We ran out of money, so we didn’t get to buy it.
Aaaaaaand, at the end of the concert, we went back to Trinoma, It was almost closing time, and we were wet, So Hannah’s ninang bought us some Wanton Soup to at leas keep us warm. :)
When her ninang’s friend was driving us back home, He said “Nakita namin ang concert." Then we said "Ows?" and he said "Oo, dito lang oh, sa Parking Lot. Parang nasa concert narin kami nun. 40 pesos pa! Kay mahal ang ticket niyo, Pwede naman dito sa parking lot na 40 pesos lang." Then I said "Ikaw na…po." :))
So yea, Me and Hannah started reminiscing the concerts and some more personal stuffs. And I came home safe and sound thanks to her Ninang. :))
So yea. NOW THAT’S WHAT YOU CALLED DETAILED! =)))))))
Sorry for this long….LOOOOOOONG post. :)) Just scan right through it if you don’t care. :)) I’m posting this for a friend of mine so yea. XD >_<
But to those people who came this far, KUDOS TO YOU! :D I LOVE YOU GUYS! :D
