lauv‘s concert in manila  – Talk Academy

  lauv‘s concert in manila On Sunday morning, I left for Manila to watch the Lauv concert. Lauv is going aruond Asia. he is  an American singer-songwriter. I knew Lauv was having a concert in Manila, so I thought I should go. The reason is because I really like the singer, and second, I thought that watching a concert in Philippines would be hard to do again. I booked the first class bus in advance, because it’s comfortable. I can arrive in my destina-tion within 5hours. in addition, the restroom is inside the bus, so it’s very convenient. I can  watch videos to kill the time, I can also recharge my phone inside the vehicle. We arrived in Pasay city, Manila around 12noon,  As soon as I arrived, I used the Grab to move to the hotel. I booked the hotel near Greenbelt, it is a big shopping mall. It is a good place for family healing because it is well organized.     I went to the  hotel afterwards, we shopped some clothings and we saw Okada fountain show.In addition, the Okada Hotel in Manila was good to watch because there was a big casino inside. After watching the fountain show, we went back to the hotel. we ate dinner in the restaurant  and slept early. The next morning we got up early and headed back to the greenbelt mall, went shopping, and rode the Grab to Cubao, where the concert hall was located. We found out that we left our tickets at the hotel while drinking coffee at the cafe. Our cell phone didn’t work, so we sent a message to the manager to explain our problem and ask the hotel to call. The manager and vice president contacted the hotel and took the ticket from the hotel. We immediately went to there by Grab. It took  two hours to get there because of traffic jam, but we  found a ticket thanks to the manager and vice president. If we didn’t find the ticket, we wouldn’t have seen the concert.  I really enjoyed watching and listening to my favorite singer and sharing it with my best friend. And it was very special for me to be able to see the concert in Manila. Also, I did not understand the singer because he  speaks so fast, but I thought I was good at studying English because I could understand it little by little and communicate with other audiences. The concert ended around 11:00pm and I had to take the 12:15am bus that I had reserved in advance. Many people came out of the concert hall at once, so we couldn’t catch Grab, and fortunately, the bus stop is 15 minutes from our location and we walked there using Google Navi. It was possible because the teachers told me the location of the concert and bus station in advance. We arrived safely at Baguio city at 5 a.m. When we got there, taxies are waiting right in front of us, so we can easily come back to the Academy. As soon as I came back to the dormitory, I felt like I came home. I felt uncomfortable at first, but now I feel at home. that trip was successful because of the help of my teachers as well as the manager.
