Aerosmith concert in Manila - not true!

I just got this in my Manila Concert Scene network


Guys about the Aerosmith concert, OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

From: Dan Weiner
Date: Wed, 23 Feb 2011 08:27:52 -0800

I am the exclusive agent for Aerosmith. There is absolutely no truth to advertisements or rumors that have been appearing lately that Aerosmith will be playing in Manila during this year. We are all very concerned and upset that Aerosmith's fans are being misled and hope and trust that no one has bought worthless tickets for events that do not exist.

Dan Weiner
WEBSITE: www.paradigmagency.com/divisions/music
a local concert organizer consulted directly to the talent agency of Aerosmith to confirm about the rumors of their concert here in Manila. Then this information was shared to us by the local concert organizer to give us light about the rumor. The info was sent directly to Manila Concert Scene and I asked permission to post it here in my blog. (since I also moderate their other networks and blogs )

I haven't seen any advertisement of the concert, but I see lots of postings in Facebook and on Twitter about the concert, there's a date but the venue is not mentioned or the organizer.

here's a sample rumor post in FB

Interesting gadget items at True Value

nokiac30487Here's my grand plan again, visit a store and check out what will be the interesting stuff or items that they have for me. Me and Lace visited True Value store in Shangri La Mall the other day, Lace was gone for a few minutes and me was lost inside the store, and while looking for her, I saw these cool items.

I'm creating my own summer again (that title is inspired from a Deftones song), and I remember that I want my year always a summer season, because outdoor activities and skating is my lifestyle during my youngling years, but now as an adult, I want my own summer to be adventurous and travel around the world or visit different beach and provinces. But your summer adventure can be forever with Havaianas, as they launch their gimik and race contest that will start in Boracay and then to Hawaii!. oh la la la!

Baby blog: Ashton's first walker

Video 4 03m 21s
I want to post this here in my blog to note that Ashton already used the walker for the 1st time. Its funny to see him stroll around the house and reach all of our things over the the table. He chases us and stop in one location and stay there and play.

I'm glad that I didn't bought a new one and we saw Anya's old walker here in the bodega, a clean and new walker. Now the next thing to do is buy a rubberized sandals that has sound, so that we can bring Ash outside in the morning and play with us at the parking lot under the mango tree. I predict that Ash will walk without the walker before he reaches 1 year old this May 2011. Oh wow, time really runs so fast.

I searched online to see if there are other walker for sale and research if there are Star Wars design walker for baby, then I saw this cute costume! hahahaha. Looks like Ash will have one this ToyCon 2011

The brightest show on Earth shines for the 2nd time
