Statement.

Aftermath: Alden Richards ‘Adrenaline Rush’
21 September 2018 – Kia Theater

I had difficulty figuring out how to begin this Aftermath report. My blogging skills have been really rusty these days and the concert has so much feels, I don’t know where and how to start.

To warm up, I re-read the beginning part of my blog re: last year’s Upsurge concert. Guess what, the first paragraph basically said the same thing: I don’t know how I’ll write about the concert. :lol:

This is my overall takeaway from Adrenaline Rush: Alden Richards made a statement. That statement being: “This is me. This is what I want. This is what makes me happy. I will do things my way from now on, and I hope you’ll still be there with me and believe in me as I proceed with this journey.”

Best. Prize. Ever.

(This blog entry is a bit late. As usual. :hihihi: Sorry, reality got in the way.)

There’s nothing more awesome than receiving news that you’ve won a contest named “Meet and Dine With Alden Richards”. I mean, my current idol + Food. Nothing could get any better than that. :smile:

April 14, 9:15pm. I was startled by a phone call from a seemingly familiar number. I picked it up and got this message:

“Hello, is this XXXXX (my full name)? This is XXX from Cookie’s Peanut Butter. I’m sorry to be calling so late…”

Right then, it suddenly hit me why the number was familiar: it was the same number that I contacted to inquire about VIP slots for their April 22 event at Megamall.

Me, in my head: Shet. Naubusan ako ng VIP slot sa Megamall. Ibabalik pera ko. Parang Boardwalk event na naman ‘to.

:nailbite:

The caller continued:

“I would like to inform you that you’re one of the winners of our Meet and Dine with Alden Richards contest.”

Me, in a very small, pabebe voice: “Oh. Thank you.”

:lmao: I may have sounded too funny because the person on the other end of the line laughed, as well.

One fun day with one fine bae.

One Fun Day With The Bae at EK
Alden Richards’ birthday celebration with his fans

Enchanted Kingdom – 06 January 2018

Alden Richards is truly one of a kind.

How many artists do you know who would go to the extent of organizing a big birthday celebration that is open to ALL of his fans – not just the ones with fan clubs – at a huge theme park with unlimited fun rides the whole day, with the first three hours exclusively for the attendees; a buffet lunch – yep, you read that right!; a photo op with the artist; a souvenir T-shirt; and capping it all off with a free concert?

I honestly can’t think of anyone else who has done this.

Aftermath: “Thank You For 30” Cebuana Lhuillier 30th Anniversary Concert
01 September 2017 – Mall of Asia Arena

This is one of those beautiful accidents that I didn’t plan on happening, but it did.

Around 2:00pm, 1st of September. I was busy twiddling my thumbs at home when I received a message from a certain someone, asking me if I’m watching the Cebuana Lhuillier concert happening that very same day. I said no, I don’t have a ticket. She said she has some, and she’s giving it to me and my fellow ‘no-group’ friends. Her only reason: she wants me to be there. Ok, then. Who am I to say, ‘no’ to that? :hihihi: I’ve been really wanting to see this show because, hello. Alden Richards and Sarah Geronimo. And then JaDine was announced as surprise guests just the night before. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to score tickets #longstory but I guess the universe – or certain, uhm, *someones* :phew: – really wants me to witness this.

So I took a quick shower, grabbed my super-zoom cameras which were, thankfully, fully-charged, and hurried towards Mall of Asia Arena for the Thank You For 30 concert.
