Because I missed out the last Close Up Forever Summer – It’s Now or Never, I will just reminisce the first time I attended this event. It was held in Globe Circuit Concert Ground last April 5, 2014 featuring some international and local DJ’s and artists. It was my first ever party concert so this event is a memorable one.
While waiting for my turn in my dermatologist I browse some old magazines found in the waiting area. I got interested in one article about “Talk to Anybody!” since it’s one of my insecurities. It’s really hard for me to start a conversation to someone I’m not really close too or someone I just met because I’m a type of person who don’t really talk much unless you approach me first. I also don’t like long conversation and be friendly to strangers. So, after reading the article written by Holly C. Corbett in Seventeen Magazine I got some ideas to help me out in starting a good conversation with someone. Since I took a photo of it for my reference, why not share it with you.
My friend and I loves to talk about everything and anything under the sun and one of it is going on a trip together but it was me who can’t commit on joining since it’s hard to ask permission from my parents. I’ve been constantly invited out by her but I always decline until this trip. I was a little bit hesitant at first to ask if I could join my friend in Cebu but a little bit of me is confident that they’ll allow me since it was my mother’s home town. I did ask one lunch time, did a little convincing for a few days and I promised to drop-by my grandma’s house then I got that big YES from them.
It was a long bus ride going to the island. Bantayan Island is located in the west of the northern end of Cebu and its a roughly 6 hours drive from the city. I have been to Cebu many times already but it was my first time in the island and with just friends traveling. It was a short 3 days trip and while travelling with just friends I learned things that I wanted to share with you.
Do you remember when Taylor Swift had her Red Tour concert here in Manila last 2014 and do you still remember the Cornetto commercial promoting her concert on TV where she is singing Red (if not, here’s a link RedTourCommercial)? That’s when I become a super fan of her because I always get LSS with the song. I’m not really an avid fan of her music nor any type actually – I rarely even remember the song titles I hear on TV or radio except if I hear the song often like what happened to the Red song of her (I guess that Cornetto commercial really did an impact after all). I didn’t got to watch her concert though if she happens to go back here and have another world concert, I’ll definitely line up for a ticket just to see her.
Green Pastures is an organic restaurant of Cyma’s Chef Robby Goco. The restaurant is located at the fourth floor of the new East Wing of Edsa Shangri-la Mall. The place is very cozy despite of all the other restaurant beside it. The place might not be budget friendly for a barkada’s catch-up or treating your family but it’s a good place to bring a date because of the ambiance even though it’s located inside the mall. If you love organic food or just wanna try something different, you might want to visit this place.
