20th April 2013
Last Saturday, we attended the annual Ka-Angkan Festival which is a celebration of kinship and solidarity among Marikeños. The event started out with a parade of clans and was followed by a performance by the selected high school students in Marikina.
It was actually my first time to attend Ka-Angkan. I sort of felt obliged because our Tia Edna asked us to be there because our Tia Luming’s going to receive an award. However, due to the sick condition of Tia Luming she cannot attend the said occasion. Which is why in behalf of her, our Tia Edna took her place just for that night.
So there, that’s our City Mayor Del de Guzman handing over the award to Tia Edna.
#Family Pride :)

I won’t give you lotsa deets about my family though. Anyway, here’s my OOTD that night haha. I wore purple because it was mandatory for the clan.
After the awarding ceremony, we all headed to the pavilion at Tia Luming’s house to eat dinner.

Standing in the dark, together with Ara, we were taken to nirvana as we saw the beauty of experiencing music live! Yay!
Ara, my officemate-slash-friend introduced me their song, Standing in the Dark. I actually saw their music video on MYX before, but then I am not that keen on it since I thought they’re just the same as other bands, but no, I was entirely captivated by their eargasmic music. We then planned to attend their concert and yes, eventually the heavens heard our plea and then this much anticipated concert finally happened.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Lawson band, they are a British band consists of Andy Brown (acoustic guitar and lead vocals), Ryan Fletcher (bass guitar and backing vocals), Joel Peat (lead guitar and backing vocals) and Adam Pitts (drums). Their debut album is called “Chapman Square” carrying my favorite songs, Standing in the Dark, You Didn’t Tell Me, and Learn to Love Again.
