phoenix, rising.

with 5 comments


whenever i told my friends i was going to jakarta for a short trip, they all had that weird look on their faces that just screamed out “why jakarta?”. as one friend said, nobody goes to jakarta for fun. well, for your info, i was going to jakarta to watch phoenix.

the concert did not disappoint. i also thought the experience was different. i’ve never been to jakarta and did not exactly have any great expectations about the city. it’s pretty much like any other south east asian megapolis. i do have to note that the club we went to was very pretty and i thought, fun. and believe me, i’m pretty jaded. you’ve been to one club, you’ve seen it all. or so i thought. i wish manila had that kind of vibrant scene. everything just seems stale in our lil old town.

much thanks to wysgal for organizing the trip :)
