I am badly missing Singapore and Laneway as I find myself lost during lunch break, watching videos from Youtube. I still cannot believe I went there and saw Of Monsters and Men live! It was such a magical experience, as their music is to me. Lately, I either work or read about travel and I am still on a traveling high. Maybe it’s high time I explore the world more… And when I say more, maybe a few hundred (or thousand) miles away from home.
Six weeks is one of the memorable songs Of Monsters and Men played during the festival, and quite apt, it talks about going away and coming back. A little more than six weeks and I’ll be back flying again, I guess.
And maybe I’ll dread to come back because the world is ao beautiful and there is just so much to see.
Sleep, sleep all night
while the young, they wait alone.
Get up, shake the rust.
We crawl, we crawl, we crawl,
we crawl on the ground.
P.S. This is just a spinoff from my Singapore-Laneway series but I really wanna start it out on my new platform! I’m really working on it so please please please watch out for it!
After two years (oh how I miss MTV Asia!) I’ll be back in Singapore, now for St. Jerome’s Laneway festival to be held at the new The Meadow at Gardens by the Bay. Now, I’ll have more time to go around to experience the famed lion city. I really cannot hide my excitement!!! OF MONSTERS AND MEN is playing among other amazing bands. I’m also excited for Kings of Convenience, Gotye, Kimbra, Bat for Lashes, ALT-J, and Polica! And that’s just the cherry on top! There’s a total of 14 bands playing (others are Tame Impala, Yeasayer, Real Estate, Nicolas Jaar, Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, and Divine Fits) Hope I win the Meet and Greet too! Teehee!
I’ll be live tweeting at the event… and mostly for my stay in Singapore. Thanks to Globe’s BridgeUnlimited unlimited surfing, it’s more affordable AND just easy to register but just the same reliable service we get while roaming. So if you wanna keep tabs on what’s happening during Laneway, feel free to follow @Jonver_David!
PLUS… I’m planning a blog reboot. Whew! I’ve been scared to tell here, because it’d be so much pressure, but now I’m really sure! Keep tuned in for developments and I hope you’re still ready to follow my blog in its soon-to-be new home.
