..to the 2010 NU107 rock awards. On the day itself, while still in the office, one of my officemates is busy reading the newspaper. She saw the ad for the rock awards, then remarked that she didn’t realized that it will happen on that day.
This was what transpired before my shift ends:
Me: Yes, it ’s today. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend. It’s only on an invitational basis, I didn’t win the raffle, so I don’t have tickets. I tried joining a few times, but I guess malas talaga akong tao.
Officemate: Do you want to go?
M: Yes, of course, I’d love to, especially, this is the last..but i can’t, because i don’t have tickets!
O: I want to go, I think I can get tickets, but I don’t want to go there alone. But do you really want to?
M: Yes, yes, yes!
O: Give me your phone. I don’t have minutes left. I need to text someone so we can get tickets.
**After a few minutes, someone called my number. My officemate answered it.**
O: All set, we now have tickets. And it’s VIP!
M: Wee!! I love you!
And that’s how it happened. On that same day, Igot the tickets, and the two of us went there.
Well, there’s Hayden Kho. I texted mama, telling her that Hayden’s there. She replied immediately, saying that I should take a picture of him. She finds him very handsome. Too bad I wasn’t able to. There’s a lot of people around him, I’m not into celebs, I’m too shy to ask if he could pose for me so I can show it to my mother, and my phone is very ancient (2 MP, no flash, very slow, because it’s already filled to the brim with my music and videos).
I just concentrated on finishing the show and savoring my first (and last) NU107 rock awards. Too bad I was unable to take clear, crisp photos (as always, whenever I attend a gig or concert).
