My Cherie... Blossoms
After, like, less than 45 minoots, we reached the Washington, DC area via Georgetown. It's the opening of the Cherry Blossom Festival so it was pretty hard to get a parking space. The first car, composed of Pauline (Malaysian) and two Filipinas, Armie & Rachel, got a spot by waiting at Lot B. We (Ogz with bro & wife, Tina, and the knottydon) drove very far just to find a parking space. The nice thing is, it's in front of a shuttle station that gives free rides to DC visitors. We just had to wait for like 20 minoots and we're reunited with our friends at Jefferson Memorial.
Lorton is, like, 30 minoots from DC. When we got there, Racquel, Ogz's longtime friend, welcomed us. She and her family are visiting the US till the second week of April. Ogz and Racquel have been traveling the US separately and they haven't met in the US until now. Thanks to our new super kulit friend named Steve for taking these photos.
Around 9ish, the MagicSing was setup. Of course, I wouldn't say no to singing ;oP For my first song, I did "Babe". There was a slight probs with the audio though. Similar to what we experienced before with an LCD tv, the audio is slightly delayed. Anyhoo, with delay or not, I kept on singing. Got 97 on Eraserheads "Para sa Masa". Ogz sang "Kahit Kailan".
Some guy requested me to sing Journey's "Open Arms" 'cause according to him it suits my voice. Afterwards, he requested "Love Hurts" because nobody can or wants to sing it. Then for the last request, he gave me "Rosanna" by Toto. First time to sing this so I got a 93.
We truly enjoyed the food, the company of Racquel, and gained a new friend in Steve.
*** Thanks, Tina, for some of these photos
