Must Haves this Month

There are three music CDs I’ve been meaning to buy since late last year. On top of this very short list is Madonna’s latest compilation album, Celebration. Being an avid fan of the Queen of Pop, I told myself that I just got to have this album – particularly the two-disc edition. This edition includes practically all of my favorite Madonna songs – well, almost. Each disc contains 18 tracks including the song “Celebration” (love the fan video by the way – the one with Lourdes in it). Along with this is the Celebration: The Video Collection DVD, which I’m also planning to buy. Like the double disc CD, this one also contains most of Madonna’s hits through the years – but in video. Music videos of her classic hits such as “Material Girl,” “Like a Virgin,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like a Prayer,” and “Vogue” are included in the DVD as well as her newer hits like “Ray of Light,” “Frozen,” “Take a Bow,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “Hung Up,” and “Sorry.”

The other two must-have CDs for me is Glee: The Music, Volumes 1 & 2. I am one of the millions of Gleeks who tune in every week to watch the cast sing and perform various songs. And since I enjoy their musical performances so much, it’s only natural that I want to have the two volumes in my CD collection. I already have MP3s of Glee songs though but I think I want to buy the albums themselves.

However, due to financial setbacks I had in the past couple of months, I haven’t been able to get a copy of these albums. Hopefully I can get them by the end of the month.

The Birthday Chronicles

Well it’s been two days since my birthday and I must say, I had a fun celebration. But my birthday celebration wasn’t glitz and glamour or anything like that. What happened was a simple get-together with new and old friends alike. Actually, the celebration was kinda unique since it was rather a protracted one. I had a pre-birthday celebration last Saturday. I met with my two friends Andy and Mela and we spent a few hours at the salon pampering ourselves (they each had a pedicure while I had my hair treatment). My plan to get hair highlights was postponed as expected due to the condition of my hair. The hairstylist told me to go back after two weeks. After the trip to the salon, we went shopping a bit and dined out.

Then my actual birthday came. There was a simple gathering with my friends at the office and we had a fun (not to mention boisterous!) celebration. But the celebration didn’t end there. I also met with my other friends for a quiet dinner that night at Gerry’s Grill. The next day was my office friend Lady’s birthday and it was decided before that we merge our birthday blowout on her birthday. So the result was another boisterous gathering at the office pantry. And finally last night I treated my housemates to a pizza as promised. It was a quiet late birthday celebration and I had a good time talking with my housemates. Whew! Talk about a prolonged birthday! Well for me it was worth it since we only celebrate our birthdays once a year and it’s not every day that I turn (ehem, insert age here), hehe. It was another experience for me – a happy and fun one.
