It’s the end of our anniversary week and the start of our 7th year. We started our celebration by catching Maroon V in Hong Kong. It started with me, trying to get tickets here in Manila but the concert was sold out as early as June 2015. I thought I didn’t have any chance of catching Adam Levine anymore but my very resourceful knight in shining armor got me concert tickets in HK. WOW!!! Best.Anniversary.Surprise.Gift.Ever!!! I don’t think any anniversary gift could ever top that. I actually still owe him an anniversary gift but none of my ideas come close to what he got for me.
The icing on the cake was that the concert tickets in HK cost less than the ones being sold here in Manila! Unfair, right? 🙂 It was my first time to catch a concert abroad and I am hooked. First, everything was so orderly. Concert tickets were shipped to us via snail mail. We went to the concert venue and lines were orderly, no worries of a stampede or mad-adam-fan-club-crushing-us-to-death scene either. Seats were as promised, crowd was orderly, no pushing and shoving. I am officially concert-spoiled.
Here are some highlights from our Maroon V concert. One off of my concert bucket list.

We are also thinking of catching Madonna in HK or Taipei next year… no need to pay for 57k here in Manila! Not to mention catching a concert abroad is definitely an adventure in itself, a “honeymoon” trip again and an excuse to visit another (new) country.
To my honeychiwa, I don’t normally do cheesy posts but you deserve this one. Thanks for thinking-out-of-the-box! I would never have thought of watching a concert in another country. Only you could think of weird solutions to my problems. That is one of the things that I’ve learned being married to you for 7 years. Thanks for the persistent efforts in trying to make me happy. Thanks for helping me tick things off my bucket list even if you aren’t necessarily “game” to do the things on my list. That might have just been another concert night for you but to me, it meant the world to me that you would watch Maroon V for the second time just to make me happy. The effort you put into this anniversary gift is humbling. You are my Adam… you are my rock star!
To our 2 babies, please look for future partners who will care enough to want to make you happy and may you both put in the same effort for them also. It’s not the value of the gift but the thought behind the gift that makes it memorable. Putting extra time and the element of surprise in gift-giving should never stop just because you are way past the courting stage. I think the married stage needs more of these spurts of excitement, since we tend to get into this familiarity rut. Speaking of… I still owe the hubby an anniversary gift. The perfectionist in me is trying to top what he gave me or at least try to “equal” the value in sweetness. Any ideas??? 🙂
