Finally spent time with Jencarps last Saturday. We both wanted to watch Avenue Q but since
there were no more tickets that we both can afford, we decided to catch Rep's Love's Labor's Lost at Onstage since we were already there. The dilemma is that we're there before lunch
and the show starts at 8.
We spent the first part of the morning shopping...(Jencarps shopping and me watching her) and then we met up with Obie and his sister for lunch at the Tea Salon. After lunch, with Jencarps barely surviving and the morning marathon taking it's toll on us, we decided to make
time pass at Fuzion . I was surprised when Jencarps ordered food! This is barely an hour after lunch.
Time sure did pass with our incessant gabbing! By the time the show started we were already tired and feeling sleepy. I desperately tried to keep my eyes open while Jencarps peacefully dozed off beside me! :))
Excluding our short meetings for Zsazsa, we never really had a chance to catch up on each other's lives. It was sure fun to finally spend the entire day just talking about what keeps us busy and the emotional roller coaster ride that we both had to go through.
I begrudgingly dragged myself out of bed (at around 1pm) upon receiving Willie's call reminding me that he's already on his way for our swim meet. This has long been planned and I really needed the exercise so I took a shower though still very sleepy. After the invigorating
exercise, we headed to Shangri-la for a late lunch at Tokyo Tokyo with Em-J and Clarice in tow.
Upon arriving at the office, I received a message from my manager reminding me that we'll be joining Em-J's team for dinner at Dad's. I was already full and decided that I'll no longer be partaking in the buffet. We then headed to Dad's Megamall but I found the smell of food too enticing to pass up. Before I knew it, I was already holding a blue plate and filling it with food.
I frankly had more than enough of my fill that it was pure agony just staying still. I am swearing off buffets...for now. Uggh!!!
Curiously, on our way back to the office, a shot taken by our friend caught us looking at
Last Saturday, I finally got the chance to watch Avenue Q at the RCBC (thanks to Hogi!). I frankly didn't expect much since I wasn't sure if the the Manila production would be able to pull it off. Not that I have anything to base it on but the musical is so different, to quote them "it's a new breed of musical", that it's scary to expect too much.
The show, however, blew me away! It's laugh-out-loud good! Though I am already familiar with the songs where you can already surmise the plot, the experience is totally different.
The actors, most of them veterans of the stage, still managed to surprise me with their talent. Hats off to Rachel Alejandro whose seamless transition from the sweet Kate Monster to the seductive Lucy the Slut is already worth your ticket price. Ditto to Felix Rivera whose on stage a lot as Princeton and Rod. The biggest revelation, however, is Frenchie Dy. She is perfect as Christmas Eve! We luurve her!!!!
Avenue Q is already on it's 2nd week! Hurry and get your tickets now!
