I just got a barrage of photos about the ACS US Tour. It has been three years since my last trip to the US. Seeing them having fun in my favorite spots brought back a lot of memories, specially of NY. Between you and me, it made me really envious.

I love NY because of the busyness of Manhattan. In one of the photos, I saw TGI Friday's peeking out in the corner. It is where Vic and I had dinner after the lighting of the tree in Rockefeller. Central Park was where my Tita and I would rest our feet after walking the stretch of 5th Ave. Penn Station was where Vic and I dragged our luggage down the flights of stairs. It didn't occur to me that subways and train stations in NY didn't have escalators. I remember feeling so tired and frustrated that I broke into tears inside the train.

Who could forget our all-time favorite stop, Target (tar-jay)? I could spend hours in this store. Target kept me busy after work during my business trips. Shopping kept me sane in those days. Going home to an empty hotel room can do a lot to a homesick Pinay.

Most importantly, those pictures showed faces of people I haven't seen in a long time. It brought back memories of visiting new places, creating wonderful music, making new friends, stressing about Joel or Jojo's musical requirments, cramming to memorize new music and getting used to one's tantrums or drama queen-ess. It can be difficult at times but it can also be very rewarding. Touring with the ACS is one of the memories I will always treasure.

Hay...I can't wait for the next one.
