Can someone please check if pigs have sprouted wings again? Because last night, this was posted at Araneta Coliseum’s official Facebook page:
Yup, Rain is coming to Manila. Again.
I’ve been throwback-reading all the posts from 11 Days of September 2010, so when this came out, I was like… “can we still do this?” OK, more like, “am I still willing to do this again?” You really can’t blame me for asking if you know what happened seven years ago.
But one thing is for sure: I’m still going to watch.
Well, not really an update. Just more rambling.
We’ve been busy the entire day. I’ve asked a question this morning: do we still want to do this? The answer is, apparently, YES. The old CloudPH admins chatroom – aka. the Voltes Team group chat – was buzzing non-stop the whole day as we were brainstorming and trying to find whatever information we can from our various contacts. It sounded incredibly familiar. It’s very… September 2010. Please don’t tell me we’re going to be losing sleep over this again?
We still don’t have any definite details yet aside from the venue. But I received word that this concert is definitely happening before the year 2017 ends. Let’s wait and see.
I do know that my pocket is ready for this. I actually was saving up for Bruno Mars, but I failed to get tickets on both of his concert dates. Apparently, there is a reason for that and the reason is Rain. I’m more than willing to shell out good money for this. It’s Rain, after all. The last time I saw him live was 7 years ago here in Manila, and it was awesome. There’s no way I’m gonna miss this even if I haven’t exactly been a fan of the guy for the past… yes. Seven years. I mean, c’mon. I shelled out good money for Nam Joo Hyuk tickets even if I haven’t seen any of his projects. Why can’t I do that for my No. 1 Korean idol?
I have no plans of welcoming him at the airport or doing a hotel stake-out, but I’m not ruling out the possibility. I just hope that the next time I chance upon him at his hotel, there’ll be no pillars around to disappear at.
Before I end this blog entry, I’d like to share this paragraph that I posted as a parting shot to my retrospect of 11 Days in September 2010 on this blog:
The one thing I will never forget about this whole thing are the tight hugs I exchanged with both longtime and new CloudPH members after the presscon and the concert. We can never say this enough: it was once an impossible dream, and it happened. And we were together in witnessing it happening. Will it happen again? Let’s wait together for another pig to fly, shall we?
I’ll be on the lookout for flying pigs starting tomorrow.
