Dinagyang '09- I Rocked but didn't Drop

The Dinagyang fever is over. I planned to watch it live last Sunday but the plan wasn't pushed through. I was too tired watching Bamboo's gig with Sponge Cola and Callalily the night before that. And as a loyal supporter of Tribu Bola-Bola, I'm kinda disappointed that they only got the first place(Tribu Paghidaet was able to defend their title as the Champions of the Ati Competition) and a minor award, Best in Street Dancing. That was when I told myself, "so this is how the supporters of other tribes feel every ti
me we win the championship crown and most of the special/minor awards before..." I do feel a little frustrated... LOL

Since my dearly beloved tribe did not win in this year's competition, I won't talk much about the competition itself. I would rather reminisce Bamboo's gig last January 24! It was pretty exciting. Callalily, Sponge Cola, and Bamboo performed in one venue- The Avenue. I really enjoyed watching and singing along just like everyone else. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed it so much that even though I promised myself that I will only use my cellphone during Bamboo's performance, I can't help but break my promise and took videos of the bands before them! As a matter of fact, the battery of my cellphone died out just minutes before Bamboo's performance! F@#$! I was really pissed off.

Loved this Sponge Cola's version of Sana Maulit Muli.The last video I took with my selcam before it died out.

However, lady luck is still on my side since I won an MP4 in the raffle and also brought my Motorola K1 with me. The one thing I forgot was my K1's memory card! hahah.. so much for lady luck, eh? Anyways, I only ended up taking photos of the band. The quality isn't that good but well, Bamboo is still Bamboo! So, f@#$ the quality! @_@

It was a very exhilarating night just like the nights we had before- the nights when we used to watch gigs of Bamboo.

Back home, my feet were numb and my throat hurt as well as my arms and shoulders, and my back. In short, my whole body was in pain! But its all worth it. It has always been worth it as long as its Bamboo. In fact, I even wanted more- just like every believer who watched the gig. I can't wait to see them again.


*The Dinagyang photos aren't mine by the way. ^_^
