A few days ago, I posted a status on twitter about how I got slammed onto a table full of bottles and broken glasses. So here’s how it happened:
It was a monkey day for WilaBaliW as they had 2 gigs, one in 12 Monkeys in Makati and the next one was in Funky Monkey way, way up north – in Fairview.
A really rowdy crowd is normal at the rock gigs that I go to. Your popstars? Your pop-rock stars? SORRY, I can compare and they can’t compete with the kind of crowd I always experience with the rock gigs that I go to.
I’ve been pushed, hit in the head and got wet with beer and It’s very normal. Except this time it was the first time I actually semi-destroyed property, HAHAHAHA. There was a couple who was sitting on the table I slammed onto and they stood up out of fear. I was scared at first, then I felt so relieved nothing happened to me, then hours and days later I started getting all sorts of thoughts about how it could have destroyed my camera, only 3 weeks with me!
The funny thing about all of it is that I actually saved my camera which is why I fell. I could have used my hands to hold on to something, but I decided to just fall on my side or back (or side-back, whatever) to protect my camera.
I said that the photo I was trying to take should be worth it, but it isn’t. It’s a normal photo. I wasn’t looking for danger anyway, danger came to me. If my intention was to get a dangerous photo I would have something different.
Anyway, the photo just looks near to the crowd, but I wasn’t really directly behind them. It was dark and apparently I took a snapshot of the table right beside the one I landed on the way down. Haha.
