My favorite part in Hands Up is when they say, “ladies and gentlemen, T-O-P!"😍 Still euphoric over the fact that I was this close to them.🙏🏼😘 #BBMadeInManila #BIGBANG #MADETOUR (at The MOA Arena)

TOP singing BANG BANG BANG while there’s chocolate stuffed in his mouth. My poor baby … must have been so tired that he needed the sugar rush. #BBMadeInManila #BIGBANG #MADETOUR #TOP (at The MOA Arena)

After almost a decade of waiting, Linkin Park finally came back to Manila to conquer the Arena wherein thousands and thousands of manic LP fans screamed, jumped and rocked their souls with the band. Considered as one of the highlights of the Philippine concert scene this year, the show proved to be a riotous success as the Arena burst with multitudes of people from the moshpit up to the upper boxes. Without a shadow of doubt, the evening turned out to be one of the most unforgettable concerts that Manila had ever experienced.

Linkin Park… where do I even begin?

I’m alive! Excessively so, actually. I was at the right side (facing the stage), 4th to 6th row. (It varies because of the pushing and jumping and other usually abnormal frantic concert behavior, all of which I had indulged myself into doing.) 

Their setlist was a blast: Papercut, A Place for My Head, Shadow of the Day, Bleed It Out, In the End, Numb, Faint,etc etc etc. 

…And this: I got to touch Chester’s hand when he came down during One Step Closer, screaming “shut up when I’m talking to you”. His hand was cold as ice. That split second was just out of this world.

Also, I almost got Rob’s drumsticks which made me feel like Jam at the end of Detroit Rock City, but unfortunately, the fat guy who caught the other end went haywire and shoved me. (That rude piece of shit!)


Regardless, it was all so, so epic.

As a kid, I could only imagine being in one of Linkin Park’s concerts as I watched their music videos and listened to their songs on loop. Seeing them right in front of me was just a dream made real. 

 

P.S. I got to touch Chester Bennington’s hand.

As it turned out, the most decent band shot I could get was this. (Err.. not all that sorry.)

BIGBANG MADE in Manila 2015 - G-Dragon "쩔어 /Dope" Preview FANCAM

BIGBANG MADE in Manila - G-Dragon “쩔어 /Dope” Preview FANCAM

Not a beauty-related post, but you know this should be right here in this blog.

Here’s a 6 minute video of their talk prior to performing “Fantastic Baby”

  • Seungri’s version of “Pabebe” (this is a really annoying Filipino slang for “aegyo”
  • G-Dragon confused over the Filipino slang “Sample”
  • G-Dragon sang a bit of “쩔어 /Dope” from MADE Series E Album
  • Fantastic Baby Intro

*Sorry for the intense screaming and chanting plus the occasional blurs as my hands were terribly shaking.

I’m still in the process of actually sifting through all the fancams I have here coz there are just tons of them. Unfortunately, about 50% of them are either super shaky (coz I was dancing along) or just me screaming (coz I was singing along) in the background. I am going to make a full blog post for this, I promise.

For now, here’s the first one I have successfully uploaded on my YouTube account. It is seriously my favorite part! G-Dragon sang a bit of 쩔어 /Dope” from their MADE Album Series E (which is seriously amazing)!! Not to mention how criminally cute he was when he’s super confused over the Filipino slang “Sample”. FYI, in the Philippines, we have this popular TV Show wherein whenever the artists or guests were asked to show their talents off, people start chanting “Sample” which kinda means “Show us a sample of your talent!” or something like that. LOL I’m not sure if I am making any sense, but that’s just to help non-PH VIPs out there. J

This BIGBANG fangirling is gonna last for a long time. If you’re following me on my SNS, I apologize for all these spamming.

PH VIPs you were all awesome! Yellow Ocean 성공!!!

그리고 BEAT App 너무 감사합니다. 정말 행복해요. ㅠㅠ

Super special thanks to KitKat Philippines for the ultimate #ConcertBreak! Thank you for having me to watch my BIGBANG boys with you guys in your private lounge. I really felt like a true VIP thanks to you guys.

Again, please wait as I finalize everything and I will make a Full Blog Post about this.

I love you guys. Back to being tulala
