MYX had their annual summer party here in Cebu last Saturday(27Apr2013). Alongside MYX VJs and other DJs was Chicosci and Powerspoonz. After 6 months of waiting for Chicosci to come back to Cebu, the long wait was finally over.
I was broke, really broke that I only have 100pesos in my wallet. But luckily, I have a supportive father who gave me 200pesos to buy tickets and so off we went, me and my gig brothers and sisters.
When we got there by 8pm the thing has not started yet and most of the people were still outside the plaza strolling the rest of Mango. Upon entering and paying of course, we’re given these cool neon bracelets which comes in four colors: green, yellow, pink and orange. I chose yellow of course and my 3 other friends got green (so much for being the odd one hahaha).
Anyway, since it the thing has not started yet, my friends and I decided to stroll and survey the area. Came back at round 9pm but it still hasn’t started yet so we decided to stay outside the venue and then we saw the members of Powerspoonz arrive one by one. A few minutes later, the event officially started with FIREWORKS! We didn’t go in tho coz they were still doing games and stuff so later on we went somewhere (I won’t tell coz it’s my ultimate gig secret hahaha) and then waited for Chicosci to arrive.
We were just talking there and then we saw Franco, though we frequently see him we still get the chills because of his awesomeness so we had a photo opp with him. Yay! Then a few moments later, we saw them, the people we came there for, CHICOSCI. I panicked and started straightening my Chicosci shirt and wiped away all the blemishes. :) We saw Calde first and then took pictures with him, had a little conversation. Then Mcoy, and then I sw Miggy who was still inside the van. I waved at him and he waved back and mouthed something I completely wasn’t able to read.
When Miggy got out of the van I softly called him and coincidentally somebody else was calling him too, he talked to him first and I patiently waited and composed myself. When he was done I called him again and this time, he met us halfway(really so nice of him) and opened his arms for me and Jeny. And of course we wouldn’t be Cebu’s Mesdames Chavez for nothing, we hugged him right away (fangirl mode on).
(Meet Cebu’s Mmes. Chavez)
I asked Miggy if he still remembers me and he said, “Yes of course, Mia”. I almost died literally,almost died in his arms. Then the three of us had our picture. Since Jeny and I both want to have solo pictures with him, we both started talking in front of him using our language. Miggy just stared at us both, so we started talking in English and had more pictures took with him. He’s so adorable and is still very nice, they all are actually.
Fast forward: The bands played at the Mango Plaza while the DJs entertained the ones inside Alchology Club. There were less people at the plaza which is also just outside the club. Most of the people were there to go clubbing than listen to the bands but when it was time for the bands to play, people started to gather up and rock out.
CHICOSCI’s set was wild! I was up front of course, VJ Chino even noticed my Chicosci shirt and said “They’d be very happy to see that!”. I was so excited, for of course this kind of gig only happens once or twice a year here in Cebu. They opened with Fire Away and I started singing and screaming and getting crazy! Then they sang Unbelievable and then Magasin. This time Miggy went up to the fence and crazy fans just like me started reaching ang grabbing his shirt, hands and everything else.
Then he got back up on stage and then sang Raspberry Girl then Diamond Shotgun then CVSC. Sometime during the gig, i forgot what song, he went to the fence again and we thought he was just gonna stay there, but your majesty jumped off the fence and joined the crowd. Fans went from crazy to uncontrollably wild. The equally dispersed male and female fans then became female fans clustering around Miggy and the male fans moved away from the cluster to avoid further injuries brought by high heels and sneakers.
It was one wild gig and I could totally say it was the BEST CHICOSCI GIG I’ve had in my life! Thank you Chicosci, you always make everything worth it! Stay adorable and humble you guys! :)
Yes, Mong’s not round so I wasn’t able to have my MIA WITH CHICOSCI picture. Next time around I guess, we’ll make that happen. :))
