Hello! As I write to you now I am hunched over my laptop in my living room trying to figure out certain things in my life. A few weeks ago I turned 25. Ohoho. That went well – I had a toothache so I’ll let you figure out the rest.
Over the past 2 months I was having the time of my life. Me and a bunch of friends from work formed a band, now called the Saboteurs, and played 4 songs during our company’s year-ender shindig. ’twas fun! We performed Are You Gonna Go My Way (Lenny Kravitz), Hallelujah (Bamboo), Crushcrushcrush (Paramore) and Antukin (Rico Blanco). Sadly, only the first 2 songs got recorded, so… just look for them in Youtube, yeah? :p
Left to right: Raizza Videna (rhythm guitar/backup vocals), Nico Africa (lead guitar), Alan Chiu (lead guitar), me (vocals), Abes Abenoja (drums), Mond Merle (bass/backup vocals).
We played at the Makati Shangri-La’s Rizal Ballroom. Whut! Two of my bandmates even met Apl.de.ap from the Black Eyed Peas…that was wicked. I’m jealous.
We’re planning on joining our company-wide battle of the bands. Mind you, we have about 10 offices throughout the country. This is gonna be interesting. There might also be a kind of Valentine-ish acoustic night, I’m sorta interested, but we’ll see.
I’m going to the Evanescence concert next month! They have Bush with them, so that’s gonna be amazing. I might go alone, haha. That’s ’cause everyone’s pretty much focused on the Singapore concert of the Foo Fighters – which I might go to as well. I just need to get my passport sorted, then off I go! I’m mega excited as that will be my first time out of the country. Hopefully it’ll kickstart my year of going abroad! I plan on taking over England ya know.
As far as new songs and covers go, I haven’t gotten any for you just yet. But wait. I’ve pulled crazier tricks out of the hat before.
Peace, love, rock & roll…
