 photo L1050244_zps02198163.jpg

We usually go a day before the actual festival. May ganap na kasi na parties but also to avoid the traffic and rush!

You can stay in a hotel or you can try to rent a house around Palm Springs. We wanted to try out La quinta since villa type sya. Bonggels naman kasi pwedeng quad-sharing, so tipid sya. I compared it to homes in AIRBNB.COM, masmahal pa lalabas. So i guess mas ok lang yun if masmarami kami.
 photo L1050268_zpsadb7ed78.jpg

Bongga nung pathway! KLAZZ! photo L1050274_zps46d57968.jpg

AYYY! Photo op ditey mamya!
 photo L1050276_zpsfe8ba494.jpg

They have restos in the resort and madami kang choices. But best in bili parin kami sa labas. Sabi ni V, pumunta kang america tapos ang hinahanap mo palagi PANDA EXPRESS? haha! Sana naghong kong nalang tayo. haha! D ko kasi bet yung burgers and pizza. KANIN TALAGA!

Very subic lang yung villa! Sana pwede magbarbeque! Next time, siguro when bigger group we will get the house for rent para may bbq ganap!

Ayan, parang bonjing.. lagay ko daw arm band nya. Laki laking lalake, d kaya maglagay ng armband! haha!
 photo L1050292_zps7f4f38ab.jpg

We gave the box kit for Pia to keep since coachella virgin sya. Gusto ko yung parang nanalo lang ng JACKET sa wowowillie ang pagkahawak! haha!

 photo I31B9509_zps3abf6c6a.jpg

So next day before heading to the fest, nakigulo muna kami sa pool party. Always bring a valid ID, they need it for ID check 🙂

 photo L1050338_zps4ae58938.jpg

 photo L1050340_zpsb484ae83.jpgSige fine… simulan na natin ang festival… This is the sked. In fairness, compared to last year… masmarami na akong alam and nakakarelate nako. Although, the dj sets last year was better and masmadaling pasabowg na guest like Rihanna for Calvin Harris, and Snoop Dogg had 5 or 6 guests ata with hologram pa! Paandar si Snoop!

We took the shuttle to the main concert grounds. Kasama yan sa package, hassle magdala ng auto eh!

 photo L1050343_zps9c2331cc.jpg

Walkaloo ang peg. Leather shorts ba kamo? haha! Don’t worry, hindi ako nainitan kasi maganda yung lining!
 photo L1050345_zps07b486d2.jpg

 photo L1050346_zps3671ee3d.jpg

At least handa sa taginit, may pa blower effect. Kahit mainitan ako.. deadmatology! Baka malusaw yung kinulot kong buhok!
