I admit it, I do have the sappy gene. Last Wednesday, my mom, sister and I went to an absolutely knee weakening concert in the most unusual of places, the parking lot in Promenade at Greenhills.
It was a free concert by the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, and for a few hours, we just lost ourselves in the notes. I cannot presume to know the pieces that were played as I am not a devotee, but what I heard, I liked.
We giggled when the orchestra played a few songs from The Sound of Music because we were desperately trying to keep our mom from singing along. When they played a medley of Parokya ni Edgar songs, it only endeared the group to us more.
We had so much fun, we hardly noticed the rain until the downpour.
We left soaked and shivering and went off to dinner satiated, and cannot wait for the next installment.
It capped off a stressful, yet fulfilling day that until now has me smiling a little.
I hope we catch the next one when it happens.
