last thursday was my dad's birthday (HAPPY BIRHTDAY!!!) it was also bruno mars' first concert here in Cebu, Philippines at the Waterfront Hotel, Lahug.
morning of that day, i had my duty in ICU. i hurriedly went home after my shift so that i can start and finish my requirements (which i thought was due the next day!) at around 6pm, we headed to the hotel. all we ate along the way was snickers chocolate which my friend, Hannah, bought for us (thaaaaaanks han!) at exactly 8pm, Michael Copon (Felix Taggaro from OTH, remember him?!) opened the show and sang, more or less, 5 songs. we waited almost an hour after Copon finished performing before Bruno Mars' went on stage.. but the waiting was worth it. people became lively and ecstatic when he went on stage even the lights were still out. when the lights were turned on, he started playing the drums and people begun shouting. he sang a couple of songs like: Other Side, Billionaire, The Lazy Song, Marry You, Billy Jean, Liquor Store Blues, Count On Me, Grenade, and Just The Way You Are. after he sang his supposedly last song (just the way you are) and after he and his band went backstage, the fans kept on shouting ''ONE MORE!''.. he gave in and sang Runaway Baby! oh yea, they sang and danced! he also said he was a proud filipino and he promised that he'll be back pretty sooooon!
after the concert, we went to Hebrews to eat and drink and drink and drink a lot of water! as you can see in the picture above, i bought my requirements so that i can finish it.. HARDWORKING student, eh? :)
P.S. bruno mars was way hotter and cooler on stage! hahahaha!
