Rick Astley Live in Manila

I never thought I'd be watching.

I actually got the idea from Spanx. He was the one who started it all (in my opinion!).

And now that he's here.. Well..

It was actually my Panget who was pestering me all day yesterday to watch the concert. Being an 80's kid - I knew most of the songs - but my Panget, knows ALL of his songs. He even has ALL of them in his iPod! Hahaha..

He was sending me corney (but cute) messages all day using lines and titles of Rick Astley songs. By then time we finished work - he decided to purchase 2 Upper B tickets, he was really keen on watching. I was shocked. But our good grace came in the form of a text message sent by a friend to my mom. It was really unexpected. The text read 'Ma'am - I have 2 tickets for you tonight'. My mom and I wondered what kind of tickets - the reply said 'It's compli (compliemtary) Ma'am'. I was jubilant - but I think my Panget was more jubilant than I was when I told him of the great news!

We got to the Araneta just in time - the show started late. The front act was a band from Bacolod - and I couldn't help but laugh when they sang the first song. We built this Sit-teh, we built this sit-teh on rock and roll! Hahahahaha...

I was able to capture in video the whole Kuya Dick singing and dancing with Kuya Rick 'Never Gonna Give You Up' number. But I'm somehow having a hard time uploading it on Youtube (anyone care to help me??)

So for the meantime, I hope the pictures will suffice!

My favorite song in the whole concert was 'Cry for Help' but the best part of the concert? Well, of course - the Kuya Dick and Kuya Rick number. As Rick said 'It doesn't get any better than this!'

I had such a blast singing with my Panget and dancing too!!
Spotted a couple of celebrities, former flames of friends and friends too! Hihi..

Well, it was worth the wait - it was such great show! I wish he could sing all the songs again for another time! I really found it cute that he wears glasses now.. :)

Mercury Drugstore: No Return No Exchange

Mercury Drugstore has been the only drugstore in the country for years.  It was only recently that there were new players in the industry.  Before there flooding of The Generics Pharmacy - it was only in Mercury Drugstore that you can buy medicines.  I used to complain that there were so few Mercury Drugstores and that their business hours were only up to 8PM.  When I was younger I used to worry that if an emergency happens, we wouldn't be able to buy medicine elsewhere!  But then a few years ago, I was so happy to see that there are branches that are open 24 hours.  Gosh, FINALLY someone thought of doing that.  It was a long time coming.  A few years after - branches were mushrooming everywhere.  I applaud their desire to serve more people - I thought it was such a great move.  I mean for a pioneer - it was a long time coming. One of the things that I like with Mercury Drugstore is that they offer refunds and exchanges without question.  As long as you have the receipt with y

Breastfeeding Mama!

"Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (July). For this month, we join the National Nutrition Council - Department of Health in celebrating Nutrition Month with the theme "Isulong ang Breastfeeding - Tama, Sapat at EKsklusibo!" Participants will share their experiences in promoting breastfeeding or their tips on how breastfeeding should be promoted. Please scroll down to the end of this post and check out the other carnival participants." When I got pregnant, I knew instantly that I would be breastfeeding my baby.  My mom found it odd that I decided to breastfeed - this was because I grew up formula fed.  My twin brother and I were given formula since birth, there was no attempt whatsoever to breastfeed.  In fact my mom recounted that she was given medicine to stop the milk production.  My pedia, Dr. Joy Ty-Sy said that during my mom's time (when she had us) it was the boom of formulas, that it was the trend that time.  I grew up with formula, my c
