Just the perfect way to cap my birthday weekend off that is to spend a fun evening watching my favorite band perform on stage. The only band that I spent my teenage years obsessing over to the point that I have kept every single magazine article, centerfold pull-outs, a card signed by all five of them and countless CDs and singles that I bought using my school allowance. My love affair with the Backstreet Boys began on the school year of 1996 and it goes on till this day.
To Nick, Howie, AJ, Brian and Kevin (who no longer joins the group), you got a loyal fan in me! :)
So when news broke out that the Backstreet Boys are teaming up with the New Kids on the Block, a popular boyband in the 80s -- expect to see the newly-constructed SM Mall of Asia Arena filled with eager fans majority of which are screaming ladies in their 20s/30s.
Inside the Arena, there are a lot of snack stations and food stalls. I saw Krispy Kreme, Yellow Cab, Kobe Kroquette and Starbucks Coffee has a branch there as well. You'll surely won't go hungry when you're in here.
We were told to head up to the fourth floor where a door leads to a flight of stairs to get to the Gen Ad section. We passed through the Lower Box section, the Premier Suites which looked so pretty, the Upper Box and finally the gate to the Gen Ad.
People were screaming, pushing, shoving...it was pure chaos. It somehow showed how poorly disciplined some people were as they simply just wanted to get ahead of others...even those who spent more time waiting in line. Wish the SM MOA Arena management can do something about this.
It truly felt like high school all over again. Girls screaming at the sight of their favorite boy band. Some loves the New Kids on the Block, others are Backstreet Boys fanatics. Nonetheless, it was fun singing along to our favorite songs. The NKOTBSB magic is alive and kicking!

I found out that after touring the world for more than a year, last night's concert was their last and they chose to have it in Manila! Sad but yay!
I ♥ NKOTBSB!
