Incubus Concert

OMG
I went to the Incubus concert last night!
It was freakin rad!
Brandon was hot. hot with a capital H!

The moshpit went ballistic... I was hit in in the face and body a few times... it was great! I haven't been in a really good moshpit in a while! I remember just pushing big sweaty shirtless bodies.
My arms and t-shirt was soaked with sweat, my hair was in tatters and on my face, it was getting to a point where my hair was blocking my line of sight.
I think the best part of the concert was when Brandon took his shirt off. *roar*. All the females went crazy! haha

At the end of the concert.... Tim, Nino, Rob, Frannie, Micky A and Micky C were drenched in sweat! As in it looked as though the lads jumped into the harbour!
They all took their shirts off and squeezed out all the sweat. It was feral..haha.... just think of dumping your shirt in a bucket of water... than taking it out and squeezing all the water out..... yeah it was exactly like that..... not only were their shirts like that, but also their jeans.......
If you were desperate for water... you could of drank it..... nice.

I'm back in Sydney

My stint in PI is over. reality is now kicking in.
I am quite tired, I had a restless flight back home, I was floating in and out of sleep.

GK was one big experience. I absolutely loved it! I was able to experience a different kind of Philippines.
I travelled with 10 amazing people to Mindanao, and met more awesome individuals.... they made the GK experience even more memorable....

Our entrance to Davao was pretty interesting. Our plane almost crashed. As we were landing we quickly ascended, sharply. The pilot anounced that we were coming in too fast, so he needed to reland the plane. It turns out that there was actually another plane on the runway..... we ascended because we were about to hit it..... yikes!
We had quite a few 'final destination' moments..... Leonard was mauled by red ants, he was on crutches for 2 weeks (yet he still built! props to Leonard). The ceiling fan fell between 2 of the GK volunteers in a house they were staying at....

Anyhow.....

Unfortunately we did not get to build any houses, however, they put us into good use..... we built two septic tanks. It was hard work. blood sweat and tears I tell you!
I find the GK beneficiaries really inspiring. You could see how GK has changed them.. They were very hopeful for the future of their families especially for their children.
My host family were so loving and welcoming. I felt like I was in my own home.
Words can't express what I had experienced during GK. All I can say is just go and volunteer with this amazing organization, then you'll know what I am trying to explain.

I will post pics later.....
