A couple of weekends ago, the kids raved at the Closeup Forever Summer Party held at the Globe Circuit Events Ground. Yes, this is what we went to SM for even after purchasing tickets online. I prefer the hassle-free Ticketnet service but what can I do? Closeup Summer preferred the hassle-much SM tickets. Gahhh!
Closeup Forever Summer is the first-ever crowd-sourced party in the country. From the theme, to the music, to the venue and artists, Closeup gives partygoers control over this summer’s freshest party by voicing out their votes on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram through the use of the hashtag, “#CloseupForeverSummer”.
Over 500,000 people collaborated and voted to shape #CloseupForeverSummer.
Here are the results:
Music: Electronic Dance Music (EDM)
Venue: Outdoorsy Circuit Makati
Theme: Freshest Beach Party in the City
International Artist: Alesso
Local Artists: Ace Ramos and Mars Miranda
World-famous Alesso (Sweden) headlined Closeup Forever Summer and supported by international rising stars, Helena (Australia), and Deniz Koyu (Turkey). Completing the lineup last April 05, 2014 are club favorite local DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar, and Marc Naval
Tickets were sold at VIP = 4,000 Gold = 2,500 and SVIP table reservations.
I was hesitant in letting the kids go because we all know what happens at raves! @_@
* Rave: A party or event attended by large numbers of young people, involving drug use and dancing to fast, electronic music.
And I thought my Lovey was a bit young to be exposed to PWSS (people who snort stuff -right in your face) & PWMP (people who momol in public -right in your face), but they have their own minds. And since we exercise democracy at home, I was outvoted!
The 2 older kids promised to take care of my baby girl, so I had no choice but to relent after so many discussions. They have to be let out in the jungle someday anyway. So I guess that someday came early. @_@ And it was a test of their character & judgement. I am confident that I have raised them well for them to know what’s right & what’s wrong. What’s good & what’s bad.
Meanwhile, Kap & I were a couple of empty nesters! We decided to take the opportunity & go on a childless date! Talo pa rin ako coz we caught a guy movie.. meaning all bleeding macho stuff. But Kap was happy so ok na rin. Arnie is so old na though, gosh. You only realize how old you are when people you see on the big screen look a LOT older than the last time you saw them.
I braced myself for a boring night ahead but I was surprised to like the storyline of SABOTAGE. I thought it was just all blood & gore,but there’s a bit of heart in there somewhere. I wouldn’t normally watch it as my movie of choice, but I was captivated after a few minutes into the show. There’s a nice twist, I promise you! ;)
And as usual, after the movie, Kap & I went on a prowl to look for a place where we can have our midnight snack a.k.a. 500-peso-date-challenge! @_@

On our way home, my tummy was still grumbling. Hindi masaya si belly, gutom pa talaga! Kap heard it. He said: “ATM Sweetheart“! I thought he was laughing at my earlier booboo with the kids. But no, it wasn’t “At The Moment”. What he meant pala was.. Ang Takaw Mo. :P
