My Black Eyed Peas Experience

The MR. and I are not big on concerts but we sure had a GOOD night at the BEP Live in Manila, the other night. It was a last minute thing but who in their right minds would pass up on a VIP opportunity to watch Black Eyed Peas

Amazing would be an understatement. The energy on the stage and on the floor was just insane! The Mall of Asia concert ground was packed! We may have stood for more than 3 hours and it sure was hot (and stinky) but it was a small price to pay for such an experience. 

I had fun feasting my eyes on Fergie's 5 outfit changes. My most fave was the galaxy dress she donned when she performed "Big Girls Don't Cry." Of course, all the ladies, me included, sang their hearts out to the song. 

Filipinos sure love the Black Eyed Peas but the group seem to love us more. I am now officially a huge fan of Apl de Ap. This guy is amazing. The show took an emotional turn when it looked back to  his Filipino roots. Fergie also was at the verge of tears when she said the group is taking break.  

Another highlight was SMART's unveiling of its new hip and young logo. Who better do the reveal than Apl de Ap himself? Love the dots that can be anything you can make of. It promotes creativity, thinking-out-of-the-box, and is just plain empowering.

This post may be photo heavy but I realized I don't have photos of myself! It was the least of my concerns but in case you're wondering what this momma wore to the thumping grounds, it was something like this.
Well, not exactly. While I did wear a pair of cargos and a striped tee, I wish I took cue from Le Misch and wore Superga sneakers instead. And whilst shifting my day tote from one shoulder to the other, I was fantasizing of the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac. As mentioned, it was a last minute circumstance. But a fun one at that! 


  1. I love Black Eyed Peas! I seriously need to see them in concert. Lucky you!
