Maverick Sabre

November 28th, 2015 No comments
Ever since I saw Maverick Sabre performing for Glastonbury, I've made it a mission to see him live.
His voice is refreshing; you instantly know he's a true artist.
Beside the rare events outside the UK though - Turkey and some festival in continental Europe - He rarely performs outside of Great Britain so I was really lucky to be here to see him.
I heard that he has a new tour for his new album and it's going be fairly near where I live so  I persuaded some of my friends to come and see him.
Liam Bailey for the warm up set.
This was in Manchester Academy 2. The place is quite intimate but I though just the right size for the crowd. A few years back, I was told, Parokya ni Edgar was in Manchester Academy 1 which is bigger than this venue but it was only about a third full. They might have been better off here.
Closer than it seems, it was pretty intimate.

Oh Samsung S6 Camera, you were so promising.


You can get close if you really want to. It's a bit of a trade, get close to the stage or the bar which is opposite the stage. Tough choice.













 One of the crowd pleasers is Come Fly Away sung acoustically. Amazing. Here is a sample from one his gig. I didn't take a video, I just don't. Enjoy the moment I say.



'Who needs a work out, when you're sweating like f*&#'

Emotion (Ain't Nobody) I though before was just okay but when he sang it live it just took it to another level. So here's the closest to live as I can find...you just had to be there.
 Amazing voice. Really good artist.

As I rise, I carry you along with me, a heady, dizzying spin toward the sweet oceans of eternity. On wings of flames we sink into the sea of love.
May we burn forever like bees in honey.

Singapore, Manila and Home

November 3rd, 2015 No comments
I've got friends in the Merlion City and I've always heard how nice Singapore is or how clean it is and how there is order. so I decided I'd go for a short trip. How short? 12 hours from a flight with no sleep
 The day was a bit hazy as apparently smoke from forest fires in Indonesia are blown to the city. The cab and the tour driver wasn't happy - at all.

 Went to see the Malay part of the city. The distinction between the neighborhoods are so pronounced.
Just to piss my friend off, my first stop right of the plane was the Golden Arches. He's been saying because of the food choices in Singapore he has to be dragged kicking and screaming to eat at Mc Donald's.






The highlight of the food trip is Chili Crab though. It was so good. I'm just happy I had someone to help me finish the crab. I ordered the medium but it was so much for us. It was a messy goo of delicious. 

Crispy baby squid
Nothing beats the beat and the feel of home for me though. Arriving back in the country just puts my heart at ease - didn't help the jetlag though.   

Bicolandia in time for fiesta. 




It was a short holiday. I did manage to squeeze in an ATV tour of Mayon, yey!
Also, tried the posh tea experience in Avenue Square. I'm not really a big lover of tea but my friend was.
The service in Avenue is still impeccable I just wish they served scones. Warm scones and myself get along well.




A bit over the top service. Avenue is a pricey place but having someone hold your umbrella is overkill. Sprained hands, maybe?
Time to go back to reality.
One last hurrah in Singapore
I only had five hours to kill this time in Singapore. I exited customs to try more local food outside the transit lounge of the airport. They were still all good...
Singapore noodles in Singapore!



Perfection. No more peeling. Crabmeat in a bun.
