Johnoy Danao at Wharf Galley Rock Cafe – May 21, 2011

Johnoy’s gig was actually supposed to be on May 7th, but Typhoon Bebeng (Related story: Bebeng Threatens Bicol Region) came lashing down on the entire region with strong winds and heavy rains, which caused Johnoy and his team, on a Cebu Pacific plane that hovered above the Pili Airport for some time waiting and hoping to land to no avail, to come back to Manila. Incidentally, that also spoiled our Pacquiao vs Mosely plans at Ramashinta Resort & Spa, as well as my Mother’s Day Special at Stonehouse Gardens.

This is the old poster, which we released back when Wharf Galley Rock Cafe was still at its old location in Elias Angeles St., near Nagaland Hotel and our partner printing press was Goldprint. This was also back in the time when I thought one could make do with only a few sponsors here and there (and boy, was I so wrong!)


The First Became the Last… Metal Night

Camarines Sur, Music, Wharf Galley Rock Cafe By June 22, 2011 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

My motto this past month is “No to musical discrimination,” and because of that, I agreed to hold the first ever metal night in Wharf Galley Avenue Square. I had really wanted to go and see it for myself, just to see what the fuss is all about. I wanted to see what this “mosh pit” they all talk about and see how that goes, with men and women in it. I wanted to see a big crowd of black-wearing people and feel their energy. On the personal side, I had wanted to look after what I need to protect, my people, my property, or at the very least, my name. But I was home sick and was only updated via phone.


Wharf Galley Now At Avenue Square

I don’t want to say it’s a new beginning. It is whatever it is. I just could not stay another day in the old venue of Wharf Galley so we tried our best to look for a new home. Avenue Square made it possible for us to be here, and so here we are. Others might not like this change, this might not be considered growth, but at least it’s no longer “One step forward, two steps back.” I said either Wharf Galley moves to a different location or it closes with me, as nobody else wanted to see to it that it goes on. More than just myself, there is the staff, who needs this more than I do. This is not a selfish move. I myself do not need this. I can just go back to my normal life in Manila and just leave all this behind, but here we are, James and I, our entire families, all the staff behind us, all the bands, and everyone who is supporting us, fighting on…


Around my Birth Place – Naga City (Camarines Sur)

Camarines Sur By October 31, 2010 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I made a visit to my birthplace in February 2010 and took some time to go around the city, just to take photos here and there.

I took the bus from Pili, which is about 15 kilometers and 30-45 minutes away, and got off at the Central Bus Terminal – a short walk away from the recently opened SM City Naga.

Judging from the number of motorcycles in the parking lot, it seems that the motorcycle fever has hit the Nagueños.
