I was invited to the press conference, pyromusical, and concert held by Close Up Philippines on the same day my birthday is! I really had plans with friends to watch the fireworks on my birthday when they invited me so I requested if I can bring along Angela and Hanna as well! Thank you to Close Up for accommodating me and my friends!!! I really felt special that day – they even greeted me on Twitter that day, it was so crazy!

We were led to the VIP section of the Close Up stage. They had a separate stage from the SM stage (which is near the bay area.) Very excluded from the crowd outside, and it was just comfy there. I didn’t even have to worry about my things. Most importantly, I could see the artists perform really near, and of course, take good photos!

Then, an intermission. The #NewCloseUpSong was introduced and some former Close Up hits were also played.

The winners of the Pyromusical were announced, then the Philippine team  presented. There was a technical difficulty, and seriously SM needs back up plans when this happens again. Anyhow, they recovered after some 30+ minutes and continued with the show. Nothing really spectacular but it was good.

Rico Blanco, who was also celebrating his birthday that day, was the last to perform! He did quite a set and I was actually singing to Antukin and Liwanag sa Dilim. Thank you, Rico, for singing such beautiful songs! It was very appropriate for our birthday!

DSC_0066Another Rico! DJ Rico Robles!

It was a tiring day (and night) at MOA, but the party ain’t over since some friends are waiting over at Delish in Maginhawa for some drinks!!! Love these guys to bits!!!

I can’t wait til my next birthday! So far, it just gets better and better!
