Because one of my guests got sick on the Friday before the Sinulog, we were not able to go to Life Dance 2015. Good thing, the next day everyone felt reenergised so we went out on Saturday night. I wanted Lot and Maan to see the awesome side events of Sinulog. There was a free dance party courtesy of TV Channel ETC in Cebu Business Park. The ETC #Paintensity was held at the Sumilon Road of Cebu Business Park. It is the area near the CIC back gate. The venue was big but their set-up was not enough for the deluge of people. By 9 PM, the line was so long that we decided to go at the side and just move close to stage and have fun.
We picked the left side and we saw lots of people doing the same thing. Steph and I even saw an old friend Mark Quitos who came over from Cagayan de Oro City just to take photos of the Sinulog 2015 festivities. We have not seen Mark for 4 years.
The party atmosphere extended to our side and a lot of people were dancing and drinking. DJ Funk Abby had a great mix and crowd was pumped up.
Eventually, the barrier going to the main area was removed but we remained in our spot. It was not as rowdy and we were all having fun drinking some Emperador with Iced Tea. There was even a time that the music was stopped because the middle part got too crowded and some people got hurt. The organisers even threatened to end the event early. Eventually, DJ funk Abby resumed after like 30 minutes of silence.
We stayed past midnight in time for Ace Ramos to start his set. I did not want to leave yet but we know that we still have an early day the next day so we have to wrap up. We had a great time and probably we will still attend a similar event in Sinulog 2016.
