‘God’s Gift to Musical Theatre…’ — THE TIMES, UK

Music of The Night…

“Close your eyes and let music set you free.” ― Charles Hart

July 2013 marks one of the most Spectacular month of my life. Having to be part of the audience for two great musicals and plays from Broadway, US. It is indeed an eye opener.

These are what I call passion-for-the-arts, the hidden talents only seen in theater at such. You can’t compare anything else with them. 

Before I elaborate more on ‘the Phantom of the Opera’, I shall reverse back to what’s happening in the day.

Beer Market Flea!

Featuring famous blog shoppes such as ohsofickle and markeddownmarket where they had a clothes buffet session of only $30 for a bag and you can squeeze any amount of clothes inside the bag.

Very competitive indeed, but considering the large crowds of shoppers, business was pretty good.

I had to clear all my old stocks away and so we were selling everything as low as $5 for one dress!

Girls,  you just have to dig in the box and find that lucky dress of yours! 🙂

And yes, many girls did dig, which was pretty surprising! I’m glad they are happy shopping with us and we are also happy that they found their favourite pieces out of that massive haystack! LOL.

I stayed at that event till 5pm before getting my ass out of the chair to MarinaBaySands with Joyce!

I am so elated for this day to come! Having the privilege of getting a pair of complimentary tickets to watch this artsy musical, I am more than just fortunate and grateful. Thank God.

It was still pretty early before the show commence. So me and Joyce decided to go for a little tea session at TWG Boutique. Well, it was her virgin moment!

TWG Tea Boutique always gives me a great feeling to be seated on their comfy sofa seats, along with a heart to heart talk, smelling the fragrance off from the tea in the little tea cups, sipping bits of it and biting the macarons, flavour to flavour. Ahh!! Such awesome Life. The only thing missing was the MADHATTER.

I am a tea person. Like, literally. A fetish for it and a sucker for it.

Joyce seems to be enjoying the tea as well! Finally, a date with  my secret partner ❤

Our seats were pretty steep and far away from the stage. As you can see from the image, we were at level 3. Well, I wouldn’t conclude that it is a bad seat. We  can still see the whole play clearly, but we were just too unfortunate to be seated behind to big, tall couple! Damn! They were annoying.

The musical lasted for about 120 minutes with a 15 minute interval.

The effects and props they used are more than just AMAZING. Not to forget, the vocals are INCREDIBLE.

Exhilarating, I am. After the musical.

To mark this memorable day, we took a picture with the nice back drop.

I strongly recommend everyone to catch this musical while you can. But, read the love story and be touched by the phantom’s strong love for Christine!

Listen to the music of the phantom and Be dazzled by music and synchronized contemporary dance.
