November 27, 2014. Jason Mraz with Raining Jane live in Manila. My Mraz addiction as told by this post, I never wanted to miss hearing him sing live for the world. It was kind of short notice, for I only heard about the concert a month before. I didn’t have enough time to save up for a nearer seat so I ended up in General Admission, the farthest one. I wasn’t complaining, though, all I needed that time was to hear him live!
I looked everywhere for a concert buddy but everyone’s either busy or not interested. Luckily, a very good high school friend of mine agreed to come and watch with me! I seriously owed him one, especially that I really needed someone with whom I can watch and go home late. (And one more thing, my friend’s teammate went to the concert as well with his girlfriend. Yay, company!)
When the much-awaited came, I couldn’t just contain myself. Not to mention it was also my first-ever concert experience. Unfortunately, my phone charger had been acting up so I was left with my point-and-shoot camera which was also kind of acting up. The least thing I could do was to pray that my camera would not let go. It didn’t, surprisingly, but I was only able to record I’m Yours and It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday. I didn’t need too much photos, anyway, I was seated in General Admission section. All my camera could see was the lights and mini Jason Mraz. Plus, I came to the concert to hear him live, not to see him in person. Although the latter is now my goal.
I never thought the show would last for almost three long hours! I was expecting that it would be quick, 1 and 1/2 hours max. We arrived at the venue at 4:30pm, stood in queue until 7:30pm, got let in the coliseum at exactly 8pm. We waited for a while, the show officially started at 8:30pm. Sang my heart out for three hours, and then went home at 1am. Everyone I know knows how much short of a patience I’ve got, which FYI is just like an inch, but it was totally worth it! I wouldn’t mind doing it all over again.
It was totally the highlight of my 2014!!! Now that 2015’s almost coming to an end, mind sharing your year’s highlight?
Love and light,
