I’d like to talk about what I did on Valentine’s Eve. Unless somebody comes along my status will not change anytime. Might as well enjoy the singleton life so I planned something for the day to beat the Valentine blues.
Took a brief respite from work (although I still went to the office). I left early to beat the traffic bound Edsa and arrived in Greenhills rather early.
Late lunch/early katsu dinner
I was that hungry.
Watched 50 Shades of Grey to pass the time, which I kinda regretted afterwards.
The Main Event at the Music Museum
I’m thrilled to watch my fave singer Joey Albert again. Plus one of the best vocal groups, The Company, it sure promises to be a great night for OPM music lovers like me.
I just love the repertoire! Joey Albert and The Company sang their hits and the audience just took everything in. The Company went from wacky to senti with their set and I have a feeling that they’re getting better over time with new member OJ Mariano in the mix. As always, the blending and synchronization is almost perfection, which the opening act MICA should take as a lesson if they want to stay in the business for a long time. And Joey Albert is just lovely. I was mesmerized when I first saw her live in early 2000s and she still takes my breath away with that voice. She sings from the heart and that’s what younger singers lack sometimes. Aside from Million Miles Away, I have to say that my fave performance is the mash up of Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin and I’ll Be Seeing You which she sang with Moy Ortiz – absolutely beautiful.
Actually, I miss these kinds of songs from the past – beautiful lyrics combined with hauntingly good music that over time will turn into classics. Hopefully the younger generation will get to discover and see them in a new light just like I did.
So anyway, I digress. There was a meet and greet at the lobby afterwards and of course, I have to be there. It was a dream cone true when I finally got to meet Joey Albert, my first time ever, and we talked a bit (makes me love her even more), she autographed my CD and I took the selfie. Fan mode to the max!
Well, I wasn’t satisfied with the selfie so I went the second time to ask for a picture again, which she graciously did. So happy!
Oh Mr. OJ Mariano, who I saw before in Ramahari and Rak of Aegis took that selfie, galing!
I was on Cloud 9 that night. It put some positive vibes back to me. Although I was rather shy to meet with the rest of the members of the Company, I took some pics of them and hopefully there will be a next time.
Thank you Ms. Joey Albert and The Company, for a wonderful night.
