Truly, Madly, Deeply

Last year, I had my first MAJOR part in a wedding. I was the Maid of Honor for my friend in Graduate School. It seems that more of my friends are settling down. For this year, my calendar has noted 3 weddings that I need to attend. The first was last Saturday at Batulao, Batangas. For this wedding, I was a guest. 

A couple of my officemates were there as well. I feel humbled that the couple (who are also my officemates) have invited me to witness this event. I'm from Cavite but it took like 2 hours before we reached the place. I was surprised that it was near Charles Huang Conference Center. We used to have our retreat there in college. Anyway, Chapel On the Hill is such a nice, solemn place for weddings.

Before the ceremony, I learned that one of my previous hires/employees and the groom know each other. Small world, huh? I can't find my officemates so I decided to go with our former employee and his buddies. The wedding started at 2PM. While the mass was on-going, the former employee made chit-chat and informed me that he checked Jobstreet and he saw that there are a lot of openings in his (former) team. He concluded that many people are leaving because of a certain 'hierarchy' in that team. He was telling me this while we were observing the wedding. *SIGH* I really hate it when people bring up WORK-RELATED MATTERS during special events. Yes, I'm in HR. But I have a life outside work. 

I cut the conversation by telling the guy that everything is going well with his  (former) team. The reason that there's an opening is because there were some promotions and not because of people are resigning. I ended my statement by telling him: "If you have issues, you should have raised that in your exit interview. We're attending a wedding and I prefer to focus on that."
I thought the guy would stop but hellno! he tried to save his ass by telling me that I was the one who opened up the topic. ME?! gods, that made my vein popped. I answered: "I didn't even ask about your work. YOU started this topic. Why are you even checking the company thru Jobstreet? YOU wanted to know about your team. I just replied to your inquiries." 
FINALLY! That made him shut up. 

After the wedding, I learned that guy and his buddies didn't have a car. They went to the church via bus and tricycle. I felt sorry for them as the reception is in Tagaytay and offered my ride to them. But once in the car, I didn't talk to that guy again. He was trying to make chit-chat but I acted deaf. Once at the reception, thankfully! I shared tables with my officemates and not with that guy. My officemates were a bit late in the wedding that's why I couldn't find them first. Since I'm single, I was being teased or rather... pimped (lol) to the bachelors.

One of the things that I look forward to in a wedding is I'd like to hear what the families have to say to the newlywed couple. We always thought that mothers would be the first ones to cry but in all of the weddings I've been to, it was always the father who cries first. 

Also, gone are the days when singles would vie for the bouquet and the garter. I noticed that the wedding games are getting creative just to corner 1 male and 1 female. For this wedding, the guys have to do the Limbo Rock/Dancing. Whoever touches the satin ribbon will be the "winner". One of our officemates was declared as the "winner".
For us, females, each were given a sleeping/eye mask and we need to find hairpins that were carefully tucked at the bachelor's body. haha.. it seems most of the female participants are motivated since the bachelor was good-looking. As for me, since he's an officemate (not the former officemate, oki?), his charms no longer work. hahaha.. but he's really nice. He's one of the fellows we can joke around with. :)

The program ended at around 8PM, I think. I was surprised that in Tagaytay, there's traffic already. I remember the said place with little or no traffic at all. After the event, I realized it's already my 2nd year attending weddings with no boyfriend and that I'm always part of the SINGLES game.

One of my friends suggested I should stop this whole anime-cosplay-Japanese thing for me to get a boyfriend. That guys get turned off that I'm still in tuned with childish hobbies. But I also realized, there would be always be guys who'll not see me as their potential mate.

I tried to 'tame down' who Nagi is. I colored my hair in dark brown to look normal and didn't mention about my interest in anime, comics and fashion. BIG MISTAKE! Because I maybe able to hide who I am. But I can't hide who my friends are. Friends reflect who we really are. 
Besides, I may love to color my hair, watch anime, read manga/comics, etc. But I think I have a pretty good sense of responsibility when it comes to my career. For starters, I'm on my 4th year with my current company. :)

Well, if I can't find a guy who'll truly, madly, deeply accept me for everything that I am. I'll just settle for the role of the cool aunt that kids love to hang-out with because she's never boring, cooks great food and has a nice home that offers an awesome home theater system and a library full of manga/comics. BUT she looks so awesome for her age that your kids' friends would thought their 'aunt' was a former supermodel. hahaha..
This is not to say I'm closing my heart to love. This is what you call the back-up plan. :))

2 more weddings... 2 more ways to expand my network. Will this lead me to Prince Charming?

Single Girl Nagi (lol)

Driver's High

After the concert, we (I, Hoshi, Tcha and Fairy) ate at a nearby Burger King joint. Our conversation started how we all got to know each other and about L'arc En Ciel (of course!) then it evolved to discussing other Jrock acts and that the newer bands doesn't  catch our attention. We wondered. Is it about the lyrics? music style? visual presentation? or...simply because we are getting old? We laughed at such thought. We also discussed about other celebrities such as GACKT and Utada Hikaru. Then we got serious on about work and the people we deal with everyday. We didn't even realized that it's already 12MN! And we missed the last trip for the train.

The inevitable discussion of other Japanese music artists after the concert

Thankfully, transportation in Singapore isn't a problem. And it's safe too. Hoshi called for 2 cabs and it arrived just after 5-7minutes. We let Tcha took the 1st cab since she'll be traveling alone back to her hotel. Hoshi, Fairy and I took 1 cab together. Our uncle was nice and entertaining. He likes to ask questions and share stories. I can't help but feel how similar this scene is. Most of the taxi drivers here in PH at night will also try to engage you in a conversation. Probably a way to keep themselves awake. Uncle even shared some tips about traveling in Malaysia and how to eat durian without leaving your hands so smelly.  :)

When Hoshi and I got home, I noticed that it's already 1AM. this time, I feel bad that I'll leave Singapore. This was the longest bonding moment Hoshi and I have so far. This really helped to make us closer. We talked things outside of the fandom. About family, work, plans in our career and yes, even love life. Mine's boring tho. XD

Before I sleep, I checked my towel which I used to cover Hoshi's pillow. tsk, tsk.. it has some dye marks already. But good thing, it's not on the pillow cover.

Lost Heaven
After a few hours of sleep, I woke up around 8AM and prepared myself to go to church. I was accompanied by Hoshi's roommate. I think it was a good 15-20minute walk from our place. Also, there's a Buddhist temple. It's just a stone throw away from the Catholic church. This was my first time to see two different beliefs sharing a ground near to each other. You'll get a vibe that everyone really tries to get along with each other.

The mass just ran for 1hr. And when we got home, I organized my things. On the other hand, Hoshi was preparing herself for her church service. Hoshi and I left their home at around 1PM. One of her roommates, Popoy helped us in carrying my luggage. Before I rode the taxi, I hugged Hoshi tight. Who knew that a simple letter in Questor magazine could lead to a friendship that withstood years!

My flight back to the Philippines is scheduled at 2:20PM. I was at the check-in counter already at 1PM. It took only 20minutes to finish the process. I used my free time to look for more pasalubong at their Duty Free shop. I didn't notice the time that it was almost 2PM! I was afraid that I was late but when I got to the boarding gate, we were informed that the flight will be delayed for 1hr since the first flight that day was delayed. Domino effect... Anyway, our flight officially left Singapore at 3:45PM.

I arrived Manila at around 7PM. The moment we were at the PH Immigration counter, I miss Singapore. Not only because my friends are there and L'arc En Ciel had a concert but because it was very organized. Most of us,Filipinos are complaining that the sign boards are confusing. The board says NON-RESIDENT PASSPORT but alas! all of us were asked to line there. One returning resident asked in local language that he's a Filipino and why does he need to line to a NON-RESIDENT PASSPORT counter. The personnel just replied: "Okay lang yan" (translation: It's okay.)
/sigh/ I joked myself: I'm really back in the Philippines.

ROUTE 666 
After the Immigration counter, it was the dreaded Customs counter. Again, the signboard problem. The board says WITH ITEMS TO DECLARE. Even if us, passengers who don't have any item/s to declare, we still need to line up there. The NO ITEMS TO DECLARE counter is closed. I don't get it. In Singapore, both counters are open. When it was my turn, the officer was curious with my boots. Her questions seem to hint that I need to pay taxes because I bought it in Singapore. I told her that I bought it here in PH at a department store. She replied that it still looks new. I told her that I just use it for events such as concerts. She has this surprised look as if she saw a celebrity. NO KIDDING! And she just managed to say: "Singer or Performer ka pala."  (translation: You must be a singer/performer.)
And then she allowed me to pass. /RELIEF/ Anyway, if she insisted that I should pay tax dues for my shoes (hey, that rhymes!), I have an evidence that my shoes were bought here in Manila. ^_^

I went to the receiving area of the NAIA Terminal 3 for arriving passengers. I couldn't find any available Money Changer so I opted to withdraw from an ATM. I saw another disappointment. There were some people hanging out near the ATM counters. The guards doesn't even bother to budge those people who are hanging around and obviously not withdrawing from the ATM. Doesn't they realize the threat of allowing random people in such area? So much for the IT'S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES campaign. Safety should be a priority! Ohwell... at least I'm back in one piece.

I still have a music hang-over if you may call it. Especially with their ANATA performance.

But this trip is not just about a simple fangirl's trip abroad to see her favorite band. During my short stay there, I was able to experience for myself what our fellow Filipinos are saying about Singapore. I also got a feel of our OFWs' work and compensation expectations if ever a company based in the Philippines would ask them to come back. Most importantly, it also made me closer to one of my friends, Hoshi. We may not be rabid as before with the band and their songs. But it was nice to bond over things outside of fandom too.
I get to see the serious side of Hoshi. I've to say she has her own tough chick side underneath the bubbly persona everyone sees. I leave you now my favorite piece off their concert in Singapore.

I'm So Happy

We got up around 8AM and started the day by doing breakfast for everyone. Hoshi was really nice and accommodating to me. I helped around by making scrambled eggs with cheese. Don't you just love cheese? *heart* We had Pinoy-style breakfast but with brown rice. Can I just say their brown rice smelled like chocolate porridge? I'm not sure why. I couldn't help myself but get another serving!

After the breakfast, I logged online and informed Tcha that the roaming service isn't working but I told her I'm looking forward to see her at the concert. I also memorized her seat and row #. I was also touched how my friends are cheering for me at Facebook that I'll see L'arc En Ciel. I like the punchline of my friend, DK. He said: atleast he showed up where he's Hyde-ing... 

Supposedly, our itinerary will be Little India and Chinatown. And also to taste more Singaporean food but since we took in consideration that we need to be at the Singapore Indoor Stadium at least an 1hr or so, we  decided to cut our itinerary and just go to the Mustafa mall to buy some pasalubong. I'm also delighted that this mall is open round the clock (yes, a 24hr mall!) and accepts credit card. Singapore does not only offer convenience to its citizens but to tourists such as myself! ^_^
I just bought a few items since I was thinking of the weight of my baggage and fear over the PH customs. *_*

Just when we were about to leave the mall, we saw a PINK watch by Zerone. I didn't have any plans to buy something for myself but god, it was a PINK watch. I asked the sales lady to convert the price to PHP and when I found it reasonable, yes... I bought it. LOL.
We were also reminded by the sales lady that as a tourist, I'm entitled to a 7% rebate from the GST (Goods and Services Tax). However, you need to go to the GST counter on the same day of your purchased items so you can avail the said rebate. What's so cool about this rebate is that you have the option to receive it via your credit card or thru mail. If it's mail, I think they're going to send a cheque instead. :)
Anyway, the shipping from Singapore to Philippines doesn't take long. Usually just 2-3 weeks (including weekends) based on my experience from eBay.

After shopping, we went home and took a "power nap". ^_^
I'm not sure how I was able to get some nap as I'm starting to feel giddy from excitement. hihi..
Anyway, after the nap and eating a light dinner, we dolled ourselves up. Hoshi's cousin Ate Shiela helped with our "dolling up session" too. :D Made me miss my cousin whom I'm very close to. Before we left the house, we had a mini-photoshoot. We took a cab from Hoshi's place and I'm delighted how easy the travel was. Hoshi showed me how the toll gates work and yes, it's another "whoa, hi-tech" moment for me. :)

When we reached the venue, there were a lot of people already outside. Some fans even dressed up as the band members. I even saw a few who have HYDE-inspired Angel Wings tattoo. Anyway, we made a beeline to the souvenir booth and by accident, we saw one of Hoshi's friends! It was Fairy.

It was really nice that we were able to arrive before the concert started. We hang out with Fairy and shared how we all knew L'arc En Ciel. The common answer was: Rurouni Kenshin.
At the souvenir booth, they no longer have (t-shirt) sizes available for us. I just bought the World Tour pamphlet. Once inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium, we agreed that after the concert we should hang-out again. Fairy has a different seat. At this time, I was also thinking how am I going to meet my online friend, Tcha. I tried texting and calling her number but failed. All I knew was she's seated at PC2 (blue seats, near the stage).

Fans waiting for the concert - Singapore Indoor Stadium

As people started to gather inside the stadium, the sole thought in my mind was: I'm really here~
haha.. yes, I'm amazed how this "dream" became a reality for me. I remember at my former blog, I have an entry around 2008, that I wanted to see L'arc En Ciel in concert but I didn't have a passport yet. I think that concert was in Hong Kong.

Anyway, Hoshi and I talked about our favorite songs and our expectations for the concert. We also giggled that our view is really nice. That even if people would stand during the concert, we could still see the guys perform. Then, I looked at those blue seats below us. I wondered if Tcha has received my message and if she's already here in the venue. As if on cue, I saw a girl with long hair, looking at our direction from the blue seats. I have a strong gut feel that it was Tcha. I waved my hand and it seemed that "girl" is acknowledging my presence. I told Hoshi that it could be my friend and we went to that railing and I continued waving my hand. The "girl" went to the railing too and true enough, it was Tcha! May I add that our seats were 30-40mtrs away from each other. I think I forgot to tell Tcha that I colored my hair in red violet. My FaceBook profile pic is still in brunette. We had a quick chat and agreed that after the concert, we'll meet on the same railing since the roaming service didn't work (Both of us are GLOBE subscribers).

When we got back to our seats, I saw that there were a lot of people who were taking pictures even when there's a notice in the SISTIC website/ticket that taking photos and videos are not allowed. Since I saw everyone was in a photo frenzy, I decided to wipe my camera out as well. But I still act with caution. My camera's barely a month old and I certainly don't want to depart with it because of my fangirl foolishness.

It was almost 8PM when we heard like a 5-second guitar riff on the speakers.Fans can only guess if it was Tetsu or Ken who's doing a sound check but the whole crowd certainly roared with excitement. When the white lights went off, I gasped for air for what's about to happen. The concert started with a 2-3minute 3D video clip. Artistically telling us, audience that we're going to embark on a journey. ^_~
And then, the screen showed HYDE punching the screen and breaking it into pieces. Excitement went one notch higher as we heard a piano piece played until the voice of HYDE seductively stormed the speakers. Hoshi and I hugged each other~ The fans screamed more as the guitars and drums played in unison taking our souls in a musical journey which is made of 20 years.
People couldn't help themselves but stand during the concert. Especially during the 1st song. The usherettes tried to keep people on their seats but it was no use. Everyone were standing and dancing.

I was wearing boots. I think by the second or third song, my legs started to feel heavy. For someone who's wearing heels everyday, this is unexpected. LOL. But when HONEY came, it's like my legs have been magically healed. LOL. I was dancing and singing like crazy. And I was surprised that I still know the (majority of the) lyrics by heart. After HONEY, we decided to take our seats for a while. I liked the idea that during DAYBREAKS BELL, their background is undeniably Gundam-inspired (of course, it's an Op song for a Gundam series, what could've been better!). But it reminded me more of Gundam Wing's 1st Opening rather than Gundam 00. I was half-expecting there'll be a 'poor teady bear with no owner' scene. hehe.. A few more songs later, 4th Ave Cafe came and my! Hoshi and I were singing and dancing our hearts out again. And finally, STAY AWAY. Those who knew me all through my L'arc En Ciel fandom days is familiar that I love this song to bits. That I even played this on Guitar Freaks and Drum Mania. I'd even copied the dance moves from their video. And yes, I even tried copying HYDE's gender-bender look.

Their background for this song I believe was the Japanese TRON dance group. Talk about combining novelty here. hahaha..  After Stay Away, RSG!! was played but I was not that familiar with it. When ANATA came, it was the perfect 'cool down' song~ It was beautiful. I heard there was a fan who cried when he/she heard it live in Singapore. After ANATA, Winterfall was played. Among the 'downer' songs of L'arc En Ciel, this is my favorite. Blurry Eyes was played after that. And the concert ended with the song, Niji. I know Hoshi loves that song and I think it was nice that they played the song at the end. A perfect way to seal our memory of this concert.

The Forbidden Lover 

I've to say, I'm more familiar with their playlist on the latter part of the concert. I didn't realize that Driver's High was not performed until the concert ended. They also give each member their own time to perform their instrument. I always viewed Yukihiro as the shy drummer. And when I was there in the concert, he still looks shy to me. But I've to say his arms are rockin'! So sexy~ I wished they focused it more and his face. Not just the whole drum ensemble with him on it. Ken... or I'll just call him fondly as Ken-chan~ I never thought I'll be interested in you physically, aside from your mad guitar skills. LOL. He looks good for his age. And I like his style. It reminds me of classic glam rock.
And Tetsu~ baby Tetsu~ *chu* *chu* You still have that youthful energy and still like colorful clothes~ hahaha.. I really like how you do that leg gesture when you play your guitar and trying to get some sort of a balance. I know Tetsu's the cheeky one but I never thought he's that dead cheeky even in a concert. How we wished we got your free lollipops and that sparkly banana water gun. And of course, no Japanese concert will be complete without a comedy skit. It was by Tetsu and Ken.
Ken mentioned that he went to Mustafa mall and bought Tetsu some Merlion statues in various sizes. Hoshi and I giggled because we just came from Mustafa a few hours before their concert. Thru Ken, we also learned that Tiger Balm is from Singapore. All the while, I thought it's from Hong Kong! So Ken, thanks for enlightening us. :))

Promised Land

*If you're a L'arc En Ciel fan, you know the title is a song. :P

The plane arrived a few minutes shy to 10AM. When I stepped on the ground of Singapore for the first time, I was really happy by the weather that greeted me. Yes, it was hot but not humid. I felt it was the perfect weather for sightseeing. I don on my sunglasses and I was thankful that it was tinted since it will hide my expression of awe. I also tried to act cool as if I'm an experienced traveler, walking around the airport with ease while my eyes carefully followed where my fellow passengers are going. And finally, I saw the Immigration desk. While waiting for my turn, I turned my phone on and checked if the roaming service was already activated. I'm using a BlackBerry and it just showed an SOS on the network indicator. I dismissed it as we just arrived in SG and thought it will change once I go outside the airport.

When it was my turn to the Immigration Officer, she read my name correctly and with no hesitation how to pronounce it. And I thought my name's unique. LOL. Anyway, I replied a very cheerful "Yes!" to her. She asked me if it's my 1st time in SG and who lives in the address I stated in the Immigration card. I answered the Officer very briefly and I could hear the excitement in my own voice. I hope I didn't look so silly by smiling all throughout the said process.

It seemed I forgot those horror stories at the Immigration. And then I heard the sound of the passport being stamped. I said "Thank You" to the Officer and proceeded to get my luggage. Once I got everything in place, an officer reminded some of us (especially those who have their cameras hang around their necks or wrists) that we can't take pictures inside the airport.

As soon as I went outside, I immediately saw my friend, Hoshi. We glomped each other and ecstatic to start our adventure. LOL. She also took a pic of me but outside of the airport. We also stopped by at the airport's money changer. Aside from the notes, I got my 1st SG coin which is 5 cents. I checked my phone and there's still no sign that my roaming is active. What's odd is that I have received an SMS confirmation that the roaming service will activate once I reached my destination. And I've registered 24hrs before my flight. I'm a GLOBE prepaid subscriber. Hoshi offered her phone so I can contact my family and tell them that I've arrived safely. My mom's phone was off so I was only able to reach my younger brother. He was teasing me, "Are you sure you're in Singapore already?" After talking to my brother, Hoshi and I had a quick snack at the airport. We had cake and tea. Hoshi's cake is strawberry. While mine's chocolate. She also gave me a crash course on the escalator and MRT rules. We rode a train from the airport and switched to 2 lanes (if I rem it right) before we reached Hoshi's place.

I settled my things and changed to something more appropriate for a city tour. The first thing that caught me in SG was the mobility and how organized the transport system is. Also, you can just use one card to pay for your train and bus ride. You can also pay credit card in their taxis. Also, I noticed the vehicles are in the right-hand drive. Hoshi and I rode a 2-level bus. I think we got off at the area of Lucky Plaza then proceeded to those hi-end shops. This place reminds me of Makati and Cubao (in a more organized way). There were also a lot of shops that caters to high-end brands like Versace, Louis Vitton, Armani, etc. I learned that the gov't has a rule when it comes to buildings. The developers have to follow a strict limitation on how many floors and what materials they can use. Another thing I noticed is that there are only few private vehicles. Aside from that it's very expensive to buy vehicles in SG, the permit and other fees for you to own a car is also quite expensive. One even claimed you can buy another car with the fees you need to pay.

             Lau Pa Sat Hawker Centre 

My friend, Hoshi and our first Singaporean meal 

Hoshi and I decided to go to Lau Pa Sat Hawker Centre to eat. YAY! My first Singaporean meal. We had seafood noodle and orange juice. Lau Pa Sat is located at the CBD of Singapore so if you're going to eat there, avoid going around lunch time. The usual lunch time is around 12:30nn-1:30pm. Good thing, we arrived at around 4pm and there were no queues. After eating, we stopped at a drug store and I bought a box of medical tape with Doraemon design. My shoes rubbed on my Achilles' area and the tiny wound created from the friction is starting to hurt while I walk. Once I got it covered by the tape, we proceeded to the MRT and here I experienced again how complicated the design of their train system. I meant complicated in a good way. Because you'll need to walk a lot but it's fully airconditioned and there are shops to check out too! On our way to Esplanade, Hoshi and I got ourselves a drink called PINK DOLPHIN. I tried their Apple flavor and liked it. We also found a souvenir shop that sells items that are made from Kimono fabric. Some items there costs similar to a seat in a L'arc En Ciel concert. Maybe if you have money to spare and like cute stuff out of Kimono fabric, you'll like it there. ^^;;

Anyway, we went around Esplanade. I must say I REALLY love this place. I love how this place with lots of paintings, exhibits and art-sy stuff. I saw a group of people doing some dance and the vibe was all about art. We went out of the Esplanade hall and walked a few metres until I finally saw the famous Merlion statue, Singapore Flyer and the Marina Sands Bay Hotel. Yes, I did the compulsory photo-taking with the Merlion. :)

We stayed there until 7:30pm. We went to a place called Makansutra for our dinner. There were a lot of people who are talking in Tagalog. It made me feel like I didn't leave PH at all. :D I was entertained how some of the sellers are speaking Tagalog. That's what you call connecting to your customers. LITERALLY. ^_~
For dinner, we had beef satay with peanut butter sauce, prawn roll and Yang Chow. For drinks, I had Bandung. Hoshi said it's made with rose. I love the smell and it tastes so yummy.

After Makansutra and checking out a pop culture and movie paraphernalia shop, we went to meet Hoshi's relatives (who were at Clarke Quay). I was shy at first since supposedly, we're going to meet them around 8PM or 9PM but we (Hoshi and I) had some fangirl-related stopovers so we met them around... 11PM already. >.< Anyway, they're a fun bunch and they accepted me as easily as if we've known each other for a long time. I even managed to crack some jokes to them. After eating, we saw another bunch of tourists who tried this bungee jump-thing. It was fun to watch and maybe if I wasn't so full, I'm willing to try such risky tourist attraction. :))

We waited for Hoshi's aunt and uncle to get a ride before we went home. It was almost 2AM (I think) when we got home. Once my head touched the pillow, I fell asleep in a snap. LOL. Good thing before I fell asleep, Hoshi and I talked what time to get up to prepare breakfast so I managed to set the alarm.
