'Cause You Give Me Something
I consider myself very lucky to be selected as one of the few bloggers to catch James Morrison live in Manila. My deepest gratitude to the Araneta Center for giving me a chance to watch James Morrison fan, whose songs meant a lot to me.

But more than giving us passes to watch the concert,we were given a "royal" treatment by also making sure that were all busog before the concert. So we were given a sumptous dinner at Pizza Hut, Gateway.
Bloggers Ria, Hazel and I were joined by 5 winners (and their friends) of The Araneta Center's Facebook contest. They were Rainier Villareal, Kris Tacuyan, Alfred Antone Jr., Raenz Abarro and Jaja Laure. If you remember it, The Araneta Center asked the question, Why do you think Smart Araneta Coliseum remains as the Mecca of Philippine sports and entertainment? and fortunately they were the lucky ones to be chosen as winners. (Yay)
With Ria, showing off our tickets! Yay thanks so much Araneta (imagine a rockstar tone while I said that!) Haha
With Hazel, Ria and Sir Teddy (Bear) (sabi ko kasi diba, wacky sana haha)
We were then joined by Helen. I soo love hanging out with these girls :)
And we were seatmates all throughout the concert :)
And this is my instagram post for that night. I had a great time watching James Morisson as he sounds exceptionally good. Well I believe that he sounds better live than on recording. I just wished that there were more people on the concert so they can hear him sing.I never thought he can actually reach those high notes with such ease.
And he definitely gave me something that night. He gave me that feeling of love. (chos!)
I'm sure that together with these people, a lot of happy and sad thoughts came to our minds when James Morisson serenaded us with Broken Strings, Wonderful World and You Give Me Something. Broken Strings gave me shills as James sung it perfectly and romantically. The whole experience was overwheling.
Indeed there are #NOOTHERCONCERT that comes close to Araneta Center. I have been to Araneta a dozen of times and all the events that held there were simply world class. I've been to concerts, games held in the center and they were unforgettable. Another thing I love about the center is its like a one-stop-shop where you can dine, shop and unwind too.
Again and again, many thanks The Araneta Center for the invite. I am deeply honored. :)
