Fete de la Musique live in Malate!

For the record, I've been awake for the past 27 hours...

After my night shift, I went straight to my Photoshop workshop in Intramuros and did my seatwork. I'll post my works after he workshop next week.

But I'm insatiable. I live like the Energy bunny. After my class at 5pm, I headed to Malate with good friend Nykko for the annual Fete de la Musique. Finally, naka-attend na rin ako woooooo!!!

Over a hundred bands in four stages in the coolest place in Manila. What can I ask for. Hehehe...

Good thing there's a PLDT booth here in Nakpil. Free internet access for me so I can share to you the fun. Hehehe. They're offering super fast broadband internet for just P999 a month *not a paid ad ;-) *

13 minutes

Anything can happen in 13 minutes.

A hot lay. A bank heist. A life-saving rescue mission. Or a sunset show like this one in San Carlos, Pangasinan (As I type in this entry, a motorcycle accident just occured outside this computer shop).

In 13 minutes, I might as well log off then head home safe.


It's also on this same place Kermit the Frog and a pal were stoned to death by some some kids in an earlier entry. Their 13 minutes of fame.

Kermit the Frog, pal stoned to death

The ricefields looked peaceful. But that afternoon saw blood as a group of kids in this quiet farming barangay in San Carlos City, Pangasinan stoned to death unsuspecting noisy mating frogs in the area for dinner.

Assailants pounded from a bridge several stones and rocks twice as big as a quezo de bola to kill their targets. Two frogs were killed and were picked floating from a puddle.

The kids claim those kind of frog has been a regular dinner fare whenever the rainy season begins.
