it all started when my friend dragged me to join the contest, “Smart Black Eyed Peas, Fly me in Promo” by Smart Communications. We took a group photo and registered online.
After 2 days, winners were announced and fortunately, our group won via electronic raffle draw. We are so lucky, aren’t we? We were one of the 35 groups nationwide who got luckily selected. The prize was all-expense-paid trip to Manila. From plane tickets, accommodation and concert tickets.
We stayed at Manila Traders Hotel, one of the four-star hotels in the Philippines. The accommodation was superb. We have the most comfy beds, nice overview of the city and most especially, best cuisines were served.
The concert was held at Mall of Asia (MOA) Concert Grounds. It started at around 8 o’clock in the evening. The girl group named “Blush” was the front act, they sang about 5 or 6 songs before BEP. At first, while listenin’ to them, I was like, “Duh!” It was so boring. Their songs were so strange to me but I tried to listen to them and it was wonderful. They have tried to make par with all the Kpop girl groups that are making their way to stardom. *not bad eh* :)) Then after 30 minutes or so, at last!!! The stage was gleaming with lights, lights that went up with the beats of the song. I was amazed by Fergie’s voice. She showed a jaw-dropping perf! I also love her galaxy dress. *shining, shimmering, splendid* I was also inspired by Apl.de.Aps life’s story and his “We can be anything” Campaign. Will.i.am also showed his skills of DJ-ing. They performed almost 20+ songs until midnight. The crowd gone wild. All were just jumping, raising their hands up in the air, dancing, shouting at the top of their lungs and singing with BEP. The concert was really extraordinary. It was beyond of what i expected \m// BEP really rocked the stage!!
I really had a great time partying with BEP & I really couldn’t forget this night. This is one of the best moments of my teenage life..
After 3 hours of full-blast concert, it ended with a fireworks display. It was glamorous. The sky shimmered with the technique-colored pyro!
It was indeed a once in a lifetime experience! I got to experience everything fabulous for FREE! Super thanks to SMART! =)))
A psychologist says: “Don’t underestimate those children who chase after Korean celebrities, their hearts are purer than anyone else, they love courageously, they will want to try their best to tackle difficult obstacles, the language and cultural barriers. They symbolise peace, they don’t discriminate based on race, they befriend people with the same interest from different countries, they’re more passionate and warm than anyone else. They don’t betray the ones they like easily, they are persistent and don’t give up easily. They are stronger than anyone else on the inside, because when they are loving these Korean stars, they experience the setbacks they’ve never experienced in life. They are all sensitive children, easily touched to tears for a long time because of one incident.
Through investigation, most of them understand gratitude. Their way of thinking is different from others, they don’t easily get carried away by love, they don’t harbour thoughts of doing bad things, and their criteria when looking for a partner is very high, other than looks, personality is more important, so the rate of marriage isn’t high, but neither is the rate of divorce.
Their memory is very good, they can easily remember the korean lyrics they don’t understand, and their coordination skills are also very strong. Most of them are cheerful children, not the kind who keep to themselves. Their will of determination is also very strong, they are able to persevere all the way just to buy something related to the celebrity they like.
In short, the way these children think is vastly different from others, and their thoughts are not easy to understand. Generally, only those who have similar interests are able to enter their world.”
