Operation Birthday Surprise

It has been a tradition to decorate the workstation of a teammate when it’s his or her birthday. Yesterday was my turn. As soon as I approached the room, I can already see the big Happy Birthday banner spanning over two desks. Yes, that’s how big it is. Around the birthday banner are balloons that are taped to the ceiling. Tie to each balloon is a ribbon where polaroid films were taped on. Continue reading “Operation Birthday Surprise”

Guardians of the Galaxy: Throwback your Playlist

I just watched the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend. I loved the soundtrack of this film, just like the first one. Hence, I searched for the Vol. 2 mixtape. I found one on YouTube. However, I wanted it to come from an official source. During my search, I found out about a Disney and Spotify collaboration. I visited this website to generate a retro playlist based on my selected Spotify playlist. The playlist is now named Coldplay!!!- Vol. 2. It has 20 tracks from various artists. My playlist has songs from Queen, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Sex Pistols, Led Zeppelin, and more. Continue reading “Guardians of the Galaxy: Throwback your Playlist”

  • 10 foreign bands I’ve interviewed (one is a lie)

Romantic Punch – a band from South Korea

Romantic Punch

While we were walking along the streets of Hongdae, we chanced upon a Korean rock band performing. We didn’t understand the songs that they sang but it seems like that they have a big fanbase. Aside from Romantic Punch, there are other street performers around the area. However, they have the most number of audience in the area. It is also interesting to note that the fans of the band are also passionate in singing their songs while they’re performing. Hope to see more street performers here in South Korea.

Preparing for the Coldplay Concert in Bangkok

It’s gonna be my first time to watch Coldplay live, my first time to watch a foreign act overseas, and my first time to go to Thailand. Me and Sharlyne did a little research on what not to bring to avoid additional inconveniences that we may experience on the day of the concert.

We found a website (originally written in Thai) that contains information that we need. Continue reading “Preparing for the Coldplay Concert in Bangkok”

The Dawn Trenta: The Repeat

The Dawn - Trenta - 4
Jett Pangan and Carlos Balcells

The Dawn celebrated a repeat of their 30th anniversary at The Music Museum last night. I missed the first one that was held at the Craft BGC last September. I’m glad that I didn’t miss this one 🙂

Yes, this was certainly our party. We stood up after a few songs were already performed by the iconic Pinoy rock band The Dawn. Some were drinking beer while singing with the band while I was drinking my Rhum Cola and was taking photos in between.
