I can’t believe how great this day is! Okay let me start off with my frustration that with all the HUGE acts coming to Manila this year, I have been able to watch ZERO. My biggest reason is, I don’t like watching in open area venues. I hate the idea of standing the whole time, so any act that will perform in an open field, I automatically cross out of my list. But lucky for me, two shows will be in seated indoor venues, but we’ve been dragging our feet for so long, that I feared that we’ve run out of good tickets. When we found out that THE Cirque Du Soleil would be performing in Manila, it shot straight up my to-watch list. I’ve never watched Cirque in Las Vegas (or anywhere for that matter), so I vowed to myself I’d watch it here no matter how expensive. But again, I’m such a procrastinator that weeks after they started selling the tickets, we were still ticket-less. Until this morning, during boardwork, Delle and I decided to go to the website hoopla.ph (they only sell tickets online), and decided to check out the day we wanted. And when we input 4 tickets, we found out that there were 4 available tickets in the FRONT ROW! I couldn’t believe it! We paid immediately, and now, we are proud owners of row AA tickets to Cirque Du Soleil!
Now the awesomeness doesn’t end there. Delle went straight to the ticket whatever and looked at the available tickets for the other concert we REALLY wanted to watch: The Script. They’ve been selling tickets for so many weeks now that I was pretty sure we won’t have good seats anymore. So imagine my shock when I found out that Delle was able to get seats from the 5th or 6th row (not really sure). So in one day, from missing out all the nice shows, we end up buying really good seats to our top 2 shows of choice. So happy! Of course, we will bleed when paying the credit card time comes along, but it will be worth it.
I actually want to watch a couple of more concerts like Maroon 5, Bruno Mars and even that Andrew Lloyd Webber show, but let’s see if my budget can still accommodate these shows. Because my thing is, if I’m going to watch, I might as well get good seats. If all I’ll see is a singing dot, then I’ll just watch the video. So either I shell out moolah for good seats, or I skip it all together. But let’s see, I was able to catch Maroon 5 the first time they were here, so I might just decide later if I still have the budget for it.
But definitely I am over Uranus with the two ticket purchases we made today! Now I can’t wait to watch. I’m quivering with anticipation. 🙂 🙂 🙂
