The Undead

Best Blogger Tips



The Undead



My arms, restless;
My feet, careless;
Consciousness, undead.


My mind, unleashed;
But my body, leashed;
Out of Control.


Oh set me free,
by a shot of bullet,
or a slash of sword.
Let it be over with, 
this hell accord.

Happy Days

Best Blogger Tips



Happy  Days

My happy days are numbered
So let me savor life,
Of time and bliss stolen...
And few minutes of smiles.

For time is precious
And they're stealing my time
For they're born of  injustice,
And  twisted  pride.

So let me breathe...
These last few breaths...
Of living with life.
For tomorrow I will only be living
But without life.

Pyromusical: Fiery Blooms in the Sky

Best Blogger Tips
Have you seen the pyromusical competition in SM Mall of Asia this year? It is an annual competition and I have always wanted to go see it. And it came true for me two weeks ago. Me and my friends decided to see the spectacle last February 25. On that day, two companies from China gave awesome performances of their fireworks.

Me,  enjoying  the scenic view! :)
There are lots of ticket options available. We bought ours in the kiosks located all over the mall. The Silver ticket (PhP 100), being the farthest, would give you the whole view of the sky. The Gold (PhP 300), being somewhat nearer, would give you a bigger view of the bay and the fireworks. If you want the front seat, you can opt for VIP with dinner (PhP1,500). My group bought the Gold tickets! Wheee~

My golden ticket
There are lots of food booths and merchants in there so you don't have to worry about getting hungry during the show. I would advise you to bring mats though, as there are no seats provided. :(

The show was started by Lidu Fireworks and the title of their performance was Epic Fantasy. Here are some great photos, courtesy of my friend Geniel. I didn't record a video of the whole thing as my arms grew tired. But the best part for me was when the Game of Thrones theme began to play. I think it surprised everybody, too.










Next was Polaris Fireworks, they made it to the top three last year. So, we kinda expected a lot from them. And boy, they didn't disappoint! I only got a recording of the finale part… and at the last minute, you could hear everyone screaming, including me! :)





Each pyromusical lasted around 20 minutes. The 8th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition is up during Saturdays, until March 18 at SM Mall of Asia.  You will enjoy it, enough to lose track of time. Catch these fleeting paintings in the sky! It's proof that the beautiful things in life are to be enjoyed in the moment.

I Feel... Wicked

Best Blogger Tips
It's been like... more than ten years since I watched the theater. I missed it a lot. I try my best to stay in touch in the world of arts. Even if it's the opposite of what I truly do. The arts are so inspirational in all forms. The theater is undoubtedly one of the best.

Wicked and upcoming theater shows in Manila

So when I heard that Wicked the musical is going to be shown here in Manila, I got excited. It's definitely my kind of genre, fantasy. I booked a ticket with excitement. It's been a long time, I said.

My golden ticket for Wicked


The Theater at Solaire became all green in theme of Wicked.

I already felt the vibe at the entrance to the Theater 

Green lights illuminated  the lounge

Oh! A map of Emerald City where you can pose for a photo!


Souvenir booths and a shop were all selling Wicked themed t-shirts, keychain, pens, and… food! :)

The souvenir shop :)

Yummy! Wicked sweet treats!

 This is genius! A jeep...

....that sells Wicked drinks and sweets. 

The theater started on time. The sudden rising sound of the orchestra playing definitely got my attention. And as the stage curtains slowly go up, I held my breath as my journey to Oz began...

Sorry I don't have photos of the show. Like movies, it is not allowed to film any of the scenes. So, I took snapshots of the souvenir programme instead. The photos are stunning there...

This is my favorite photo in the souvenir  programme.

The theater also has special effects. Rain, weather, sunlight… all amazing! They all transition smoothly before your very eyes. The animatronics they used in the set were excellent. My favorite was the Wizard of Oz, I felt fear in my heart when it spoke with glowing eyes.

The sound effects were all from a live orchestra. I think this was a first for me… to go to a theater with an orchestra, with a maestro to boot. All those talents playing music… superb!

I won't spoil it for you guys. So I'll just share with you the best parts that made an impact on me...

Defying Gravity by Jacqueline Hughes gave me the chills. Wow… the rising platform made an effect as if she's really flying. The lighting were all perfectly positioned to focus on her. The lights made a prism emanating from her body, clearly visible in the balcony. And of course, her voice defied gravity and it made the audience scream and applaud. What a performance!

Yep... close to what I saw for real...

The role of Glinda played by Carly Anderson was an entertaining one. She's just the funniest and the classiest... like a princess and Legally Blonde combined. My favorite was the Popular part, where she was all pink and singing very well, “Popular, you're gonna be popular…”

Glinda in pink!
Bradley Jaden as Fiyero was outstanding. The role fits him. His flawless voice was so dreamy on stage, especially during the “As Long as You're Mine" part. He reminded me of Romeo… :)

My crush Bradley Jaden as Fiyero :)

The cast did a great job in bringing the story on stage. Everyone was perfect. I didn't notice any mistakes at all. Oh, bring me to Emerald City! :)

Emerald  City! 

You know, I've been to movies a lot.  I've watched in 3D, 4D, and in IMAX. But it was the theater that gave me the most unforgettable experience. It engaged my senses entirely. Being there… the lighting, live orchestra, the overall atmosphere… it gives a wow factor, overall.

No movie made me hungover for days. But the theater and Wicked… unforgettable! I'm unable to move on… I'm still streaming the songs on Spotify, with Defying Gravity stuck in my mind for days.

“Tell them how high I'm defying gravity. I'm flying high defying gravity”
