I was almost home from Sagada when my father texted me:
"Chyng, andito na yung remote at lens."
Remote at lens?! All I ordered from my brother's friend was an RC-1 remote. I was delighted to see a 50mm f1.8 II prime lens in the house. I like that prime lens more than I want a telephoto lens. A cheap but good lens. I asked my brother about it and he said, pinabili ko na din. Hati tayo ha.
Joke. Of course Im happy my kuya Jongster purchased that one. I forgot to mention in my Sagada series that he drove me to EDSA because he found out I will be going on a solo trip. Haha Worried si loko! Ü
Musical Pyrolympics proper.
The excited me used that prime lens right away on our Binondo Food Trip with Doms and Doc Gelo, and other bloggers (see Doms and Doc Gelo's entries for reference). After that, I together with my friends met at MoA to see the much awaited Musical Pyrolympics. Note: It's not the World Musical Pyrolympics. This event is named 1st Philippine Pyromusical Competition.
Moving on, we arrived at about 6:30 due to the horrible traffic. I have never seen MoA that crowded. All the streets and possible entrance and exits which lead to the fireworks location are blocked. Seriously! Im amazed how the organizers dispersed all the people.
Another thing, all the restaurants that are fronting the bay are blocked too! You must avail a set meal to be able to enter the area. Ang talino! Set meals are priced depending on the location and food they serve. We saw a set meal as high as P1500 and as low as P300 (2 bottles of SMB set).
And since we have no tickets, patol kami sa offer! We settled at Seattle's Best Coffee which is located at the Ground Floor North Veranda Wing. Their set meal is priced at P400/head so pwede na. Patol!
