Ethnic immersion

I am emotionally and physically drained. I lost weight and an inch of my waistline. My skinny jeans are now loose they look like flares when I wear them. lol. Just a joke.

Well here are the photos from the first of my rockin-social-life week (hehehe). Went to Penguin Cafe, Malate after being prodded by BJ's sisters and brothers-in-law to treat them to a nice place somewhere - anywhere - for my despedida. I told them of the bar, but after uttering the words Pinoy ethnic music, they were a little taken aback. "Like, they have gongs and stuff?" asked one brother-in-law. Although I haven't seen the other bands perform yet, I thought of Kadangyan and said yes. Then silence screams in the car.

But ftw! We went there anyway.

Meet Butong Pakwan. My friend Ryan said they haven't performed in a while. Although their music makes you think of road trips on plains and hills, I'm not a total fan still.

Psychedelic chill. Thanks to Goodleaf. Great pure reggae tracks, but I was bummed for they played just a few songs.

I find the drummer cute anyways =)

Earthfish. Is it just me or the acoustic band doesn't belong in the event that evening? Not organic.

Unitiima. Not because one of the band's members is my friend, but man, they rocked the evening! Tama lang ang amats. lol. They should be the event's finale, and should have played more songs.

Lakbay Lahi. You can expect nothing but the best from this band. But where's Heidi? Naman!

I was tipsy after a couple of screwdrivers, but still managed to take a photo of each band that performed. We called it a night at 3am.

I will definitely miss this when I get to SG. It is music straight from our roots. So beautiful the melody will absorb you. Heaps =)
