This Happened In Anotherland… Were you there?

Last May 29, 2015, we tore the south down with the sickest party that ever touched Filinvest grounds. I know some of you guys missed out in all the fun because ya’ll had to do something on Saturday morning or were really not in the mood- Boo! Since I’m awesome, I have decided to a little something for you guys! For those who missed Anotherland, I’ll be recalling the experience in writing so it’ll be like you guys were there too. Here it goes!
Opening (5pm-11pm): You arrive at the venue a little before 11, because who goes to a party at 5pm right? You could hear the music from your car window, even when you were still a few blocks away. The music was booming by the time you actually got out of your car. You walk the long road before reaching Anotherland until you see it. You see the barriers to the gates of another place, another world. Cars are lined up at the opening of the play ground. They’re filled with booming music, accessories, and girls. You feel like you just stepped in Furious 7. You give out your ticket. You get a stub and a glow stick, because you’re VIP. The place has food and tattoo shops inside the Gold section. You make your way to VIP and you see the stage. It was illuminating and the music was pounding harder as the night grew. There weren’t a lot of people yet, but you could already see the potential of some. You drank and ate while waiting for the crowd to grow.
Main Act (12pm-Onwards): The crowd got bigger all of a sudden. A lot of people you actually know started piling in the fest grounds. You and your friends greeted everyone else. The main act started playing and the crowd goes wild. People start pilling to the front giving out their best moves. You join in because who wouldn’t? You dance till your feet hurt. You know you’re not the best dancer out there, but at this moment you really just don’t care because everyone seems to be enjoying each other’s presence. You follow every command of the hosts. If they say put your hands up, then you do as your told. It seems like anything is possible at this moment. You could go for anything and do anything. Now the night goes on in your will. Will you talk to the hottie? Will you break out in dance? Will you triumph in the drinking games on the sides of VIP? It’s up to you.
The following day: Well, whatever you did yesterday made sure you aren’t getting out of bed properly today. You know maybe you should cancel your plans today.
Wish you went to Anotherland? I know you do. Don’t worry, Axell will providing us with more parties to come!

Let’s Not Carpe This Effing Diem, But Let’s Party as Man Should in Anotherland

Okay, I’m not going to start this article with the usual, “Let’s Carpe this effing Diem!” or “It’ll be the sickest night of your mothafu*king lives” like your usual HS rave parties in the bahay or the super yehey venues where you get invited to- OMG! Forbes Park! Because this party is not like your usual Saturday swing outs. This May 29, 2015 Axell Entertainment will be having Anotherland in FEU Block, South Corporate avenue of Filinvest City, Manila and they will show you why God created man, and how man created fun.

You’re probably wondering why I have so much faith in this establishment. Well, creating fun is harder than it looks. You know what I mean. We’ve all had a fair share of very weak raves, so I don’t blame you. But this Music Festival will be different and I have cold hard facts to prove it.
Fact 1: Anotherland is patterned after multiple European Music Festivals and we all know how the Europeans party. Here’s a heads up; Tomorrowland, Donauinselfest, Sziget, and much more. Check this website for a run down of all European Music Festivals: http://www.festicket.com/festivals/
Fact 2: How could you go wrong with Anotherland’s theme, Sin City. You could finally pull on your best bad girl Jessica Alba look or your tough guy Bruce Willis act without being judged. The best part is you’ll feel completely bad ass with all that B&W glory.
Fact 3: It’ll be just like Fast 7, but this time you can actually see the cars first hand. Bro, if I could just touch that Lykan Hypersport, my life would be complete. Your 2013 self, who was toying around GTA 5, will be rejoicing when he chances upon the cars they’ll showcase in Anotherland.
Fact 4: There will be Tattoo Hubs! Okay, a lot of people will strongly discourage you from getting a tattoo in a Music Festival because it’s permanent and the artist wouldn’t be focused, but this is only if you get a huge ass tattoo. I think it’s pretty cool if you get a small tattoo lamented on your skin, which will remind you of one awesome night. Since it’s small, it’ll be less likely screwed up.
You can even talk to the artists in their free time and maybe you’ll step it up a notch and figure out what their tattoos mean.
Fact 5: Have you seen the line up? All the other facts are kinda unnecessary after you’ve seen the line up. Like, really. I’m not even kidding right now. It’s actually why I placed this fact last because if it were the first fact then you wouldn’t have bothered to read everything else. We’ll be having DJ MC Ronthug, DJ Ace Ramos, Funk Avy, Deuce, Roda King, Carlo Atendido, Ron Poe, and Steal. If you haven’t been living a pretty basic af life for the past few years, then you would know why these DJs are Manila’s Best! They’ve been to every single best raves and parties all around town. Uniting them all as never done before would be incredible.The party will also be hosted by Zoe Alfonso, Axell, and Miyuki. I have the biggest girl crush on Zoe Alfonso!
Believe me now?
See you there.

Thoughts That Probably Crossed Your Mind During #OTRA Manila 

Hi guys, 

As you all probably already know, One Directions recently visited Mah-Nila Mah-Nila! I watched the concert alongside my fellow Directioners on the second day of the On The Road Again Tour in Manila. I know lotsa people say that the second day was waaay different from the first day, but I bet we were all channeling the same vibe when the boys were going down and dirty with their ama-Zayn vocals (Lol- no. He didn’t show up). 




  1. “DAMMIT! It was just a dream? Maybe it was a prophecy not a dream… A girl can dream hehe!” Admit it girls we all dream about how a celebrity will meet us in a crowded concert and will ask us out because we’re actually actually really good looking but we’re just insecure then vavavoom we get married and have beautiful talented British babies. Yeah, I had a good dose of those dreams the night before OTRA.  
  3. “Let’s pray that maybe someone will scout us and give us upgraded tickets or meet and greets since we’re so early!” Oh you know we all hoped the same thing, dear. 
  4. DAMMIT! DAMMIT! WHY ARE THERE SO MANY PEOPLE LINED UP ALREADY? It’s freaking 7am!” Apparently, Directioners are morning people- Well if it means fighting for the closest spot to the stage. Oh and darling, 7am is late in concert text book. Yep, L-A-T-E! 
  5. “Okay, I’ll eat first and then you eat next or I can buy us our food. Waddya think? No, not both of us! Defend your line, woman!” Cheeseburgers, Pizza, Fries, Ice Cream, Nuggets (*wink wink*), and Brocolli (*double wink wink*) will have to wait for my future husbands. It’s called true love. Just saying. 
  6. “OMG! OMG! AHHHHH DID THEY PASS BY???” No, someone just showered the fans with water or they showed 5SOS’s music video again. 
  7. HOLD MAH SHIZ! THAT RATCHET ASS MOFO JUST CUT IN FRONT OF ME SO IMMA CUT HER P1300 SHIRT MERCH!” I swear to mah goodness gracious there were some real ratchet ass basic beaches in that concert! Sumi-simple pa sila! I see you and I will not hesitate. I might look nice but if you cross me I will cut you.
  8. “I can’t take it anymore… Let’s just upgrade the ticket already.” My wallet “Cried Me A River”
  9. “WOOH! Alright! DJ KC IS ON! Get your sprak on theyre next!” *Show starts 1 hour after opening act* 
  10. “Darling, it’s okay. You tried, KC.” I don’t know if it’s because we were all tired AF from the rain, we didn’t know the lyrics, or we heard too many get your motherfu**ing hands in the air. I felt like was the only one freaking out. It was probably the fact that there were mommies all around. 
  11. “Great. It’s raining. The only thing keeping me alive right now is the thought of them dripping in the rain. Oh yes.” 
  12. “Okay… wow. Rain stops when they get on stage.” They got us wet and kept us hanging.OMG! Really? Did they have God on speed dial and told him to make the rain stop? How’d they do that? I wanna know. It could be helpful some time. 
  13. “HUHUBELLS… Zayn, where art thou? It’s not the same without youu! The notes! The notes!” We still love you, but yeah… It wasn’t the same. It wasn’t the same.
  14. “I’ve lived in Manila my whole life and I’ve never thought of saying Manila like that. Bravo. You da best, 1D!” Complete genius! Manila like Mah Nigga, Manila like Ariba, ManilaManilaManila- I was so fascinated. You deserve 10 star claps One Direction. 
  15. “I wish my name was Manila.” And I quote, “Manila you are so beautiful.” Why, thank you! Oh right my name isn’t Manila it’s Mika. 
  16. “Come on, Harry! You can do it! Throw in a little back arm, so I can reach your throw!” No matter how dismantled and ugly that water bottle is I still want one. 
  17. “That’s right! Little beach got my bottle from bae. Nuh-uh. No way in hell.” Hunger Games was renamed Thirsty Betches for the night.
  18. “He was totally looking at me when he sang Little Things.” Gurl, in gen ad? Ya sure? 
  19. “THEYRE LEAVING?! WAIT WHY? OMG ILL MISS YOU… OH NO YOU DIDNT! DONT YOU DARE STAND ON YOUR SEATS! SECURITY ARE YOU SEEING THIS?” Okay, this really happened during the concert. Girls, I know ya thirsty, but please there are people behind you. Share the water. 
  20. “What just happened.” Now you cannot fathom your thoughts in to one due to the overwhelming euphoria you just encountered. Deep noh? This show deserved deep. It was incredible! 



   Hope you guys had as much fun as I did!
