My birthday was actually last Feb 11 but one month prior, my best friend Timmy asked me to save Feb 21 for my surprise birthday celebration with our barkada from DLSU. So that night, I got dressed extra fancy and headed to Fort for dinner and dancing.
I spent an awesome night with these people! Timmy brought us to this bar/pub called Relik where (surprise, surprise) there was an open mic night. I already had suspicions that their surprise would be something singing-related so I already had a song in mind (I want to break free by Queen); however, open mic night was Acoustic versions of 90’s to current music so they didn’t have my song 😦 I sang Alone by Heart (Celine Dion version) instead because that’s Timmy’s favourite song for me to sing. I was shaky and flat at one point since I don’t sing Acoustic so it was difficult for me to adjust. I did enjoy Smith’s rendition of Breakeven as well as Ysa and H’s awesome acoustic version of Ignition (R Kelly).
Stole this photo from Timmy’s instagram account. Finally an updated photo of our awesome friendship! Everything about this night was planned by this gorgeously OC girl. Timmy was my first friend in DLSU and we’ve been there for each other through almost everything. Can’t imagine what I would have been or how my university experience would have been like without her.
We walked to Aracama from Relik. We reserved a table (P3500 for a small table for 8) and we were there from 11:30pm to 4am. No one got super wasted nor caused a scene which is not normal when we’re all together so ACHIEVEMENT! It was my first time there too. My overall impression of the place was that there are a lot of people there that were in our age bracket so not bad. There were definitely alot of students and there were some familiar faces.
Ended the night at my place where everyone crashed. I had school the next day (Saturday class, ugh.) so I really needed to get some sleep. This night is definitely one for the books especially since I never celebrate my birthday. I promised myself that in 2014 I would put more effort to making more memories so this is definitely putting me on the right track.
