After “climbing” the world’s tallest tower last weekend, we headed to TGI Fridays in Dubai Mall to re-energize. In between the chatting and munching, I could not help but (impossibly) wished that I were in the Philippines that night to savour the finale concert of APO. If only one of their farewell concerts coincided with my most recent break in Manila and/or somebody from the UAE offered to produce their concert (instead of the Marian-Dingdong and other nonsense gigs), I would be more than happy.
There is really such a thing as mind over matter. Just when we started consuming the appetizing lamb rack, tenneesees, fillet, lemonade and lush, some of APO songs filled the air. With the right company, generous portions of edibles and just in time music, that moment was the next best thing to being in the actual concert with this TGI Fridays branch’s view:
I have uploaded here a playlist (20 songs) of my favorite APO songs (special mention to When I Met You, Pag Ibig, Bakit Ang Babae and Panalangin).
Here is a very heartwarming video of one their last performances (do not miss it!):
