Your Not-So-Imaginary Pledge

One of my favorite local indie bands, Your Imaginary Friends, is cooking up a second EP. I can still remember the time when I went to their first EP launching (One Dreamy Indeterminate Hum) two years ago at the Ayala Museum. Man, it was one hell of a night! After that, their songs have been a staple in my playlist — perfect for pre-sleep moments, brief bus travels to work, and a kick-giver when you’re bored at work.

So yeah, I am very much excited to hear something new from them again. Can’t wait to hear the studio version of Your Silence is a Villain. πŸ™‚

The 2nd EP is set to be released this December. The band is currently collecting pledges until October 25. You can check out the details here.Β Every pledge amount has something special waiting for the pledger.

What are you waiting for? Turn in your pledges now! πŸ™‚

Rainy Sunday. Chill fun.

Last weekend’s weather was terrible but it didn’t stop me and some of my friends to go out and have a chill fun. I miss spontaneous hangouts like this. Reminds me of my younger days when everyone is still very much willing to trade sleep for escapades. Oh well, I think we’re just getting old. But not that day! πŸ˜€

Meeting up with Char and Jing for the movie

We started by catching one of the entries in Cinemalaya Film Fest at Greenbelt, Mga Mumunting Lihim. Stellar cast, great director, and good plot. And have I mentioned that we watched this with the beautiful Mylene Dizon? Yes! We did! She was sitting 5 rows behind us. Haha!

Christian, give your friend some corndog!

After the movie, we went to Chili’s for dinner, where we had a round of superb Mexican food. We were joined by another friend, Maryann, whom we fondly call Ermengarde. If you’ve been an avid fan of the Princess Sarah TV series shown in one of our local TV channels, you’ll know why. πŸ˜‰

Ermengarde is the cutest!

We ordered the Bottomless Tostada Chips for appetizer. They were perfectly crisp and were served warm. It tastes good even without the salsa. We had 3 or 4 rounds of this so our 330 PHP was put into good spending.

We also ordered Triple Play which consists of Southwestern egg rolls, Buffalo wings, and Chicken Crispers. I’m not a big fan of the SWER but it comes with a yummy guacamole dip that goes well with the other entrees on the plate.

For our main dish we had Fish ‘n Chips and Fajita Trio. The Fajita Trio is special because it has a little bit of everything: marinated steak, grilled chicken, spicy garlic and lime grilled shrimp, onions, and bell peppers. I would have liked my pita bread to be softer, though, rather than crispy.

Before heading home, we went to UCC Cafe for coffee. I ordered their iced cocoa which I’m not getting again because it did “wonders” to my stomach. >_< We just passed the time taking about exclusive schools, religion (we were not drunk, I swear!), and Australia. Quite diverse topics but somehow they got interconnected. πŸ˜‰

Overall, I’m glad that we pushed through with our hangout despite the red warnings and flood alerts. And yes, I’m also glad that we all got home safe. πŸ™‚

Bed Weather

Was supposed to go out today, meet some friends, and catch Mga Mumunting Lihim for the Cinemalaya Film Festival in Greenbelt. But the weather is not cooperating.Β I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks so this weather issue is really a bummer. I even made a list of the movies to watch, checking their schedules, and fitting them into mine.

Oh well.Β I’m still crossing my fingers that it’ll behave later (the movie’s gonna be shown at 6:30PM), but news of floods around the Makati area and red warnings across the metro are disheartening. If ever this doesn’t push through, I’ll just prepare a cup of cocoa and be a couch potato for the remainder of the day.

Join me?
