“It’s the picture of a thousand sunsets.”

“Paint My Love” by Michael Learns to Rock | Friday night after party after two months (well, more) of grueling work on an industry event. I was at the hotel lobby with a friend, who was trying to get a cab home. We did not notice the hullabaloo happening just outside, but we did notice three tall Caucasians walk in with flower necklaces around their neck – well, not full of flowers, but you get the idea. Welcome necklaces. “Who are they?” my friend asked one of the men hovering at the lobby, holding some large-sized photo with a signature. “Michael Learns to Rock,” he answered. Yes, in a weird twist of fate, Michael Learns to Rock – staple of masa stations until time stops, and then some – walked past us. And we did not know. But we knew the songs. This was instantly stuck in my head the moment I learned that the band – who performed in Manila on Saturday night – was staying at the very hotel I was in. And it played as my friend approached another foreigner asking for a photograph, neither of us realizing until much later that he’s just part of the entourage. [NB]
