Les Misérables Singapore 2016

What a night. When we went to London in May 2015, I almost decided to leave my husband and daughter at the hotel to catch Les Misérables at West End by myself. Why? Because I’ve always wanted to see the musical. You see, I really, really loved the book. I first read it around 2004…

That’s What I Get from Paramore Live in Singapore 2011

I’m so glad I got to see Paramore again, in Singapore this time, and minus drummer Zac Farro. When I first saw them in Manila last year, Josh Farro wasn’t with them because he was too busy planning his wedding. The concert was held on 21 August 2011 at Singapore Indoor Stadium. Here are some…

Complete Song List from PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

This is the most difficult song list I’ve ever tried to make, since the soundtrack contained instrumental music. I had to really familiarize myself with the melodies before I could begin making the list. 1. DAWN (track 1) – Played at the beginning of the movie while the opening credits are showing. Lizzie is walking…

Decoding Paramore Live in Manila 2010

I don’t even remember when I first heard about Paramore. It was probably about two years ago, when my then-boyfriend (and now-husband) heard “That’s What You Get” on the radio and was intrigued by the beat used during the stanza. I listened to the song and liked it, but I didn’t become a fan until…

Beat It

Beat It is one of those songs where two things I like collide – in this case, Broadway and Michael Jackson. Once upon a time, there were two rival gangs – the Jets and the Sharks. Tony, the best friend of the leader of the Jets, fell in love with Maria, the sister of the leader…

Gone Too Soon

Michael Jackson’s death in June 25, 2009 affected me more than I thought it would. I mean, I know a lot of his songs, I’ve seen his music videos, I was familiar with his story – but I wouldn’t really go and consider myself a fan. But like they say, you don’t really appreciate what…

Complete Song List from Twilight

This is the complete song list from the first Twilight movie. To read the song list for New Moon, please click here. 1) Full Moon (The Black Ghosts) – track 3 in the soundtrack – This was played when Bella left Phoenix to live with Charlie at Forks, up until she got to her room….

Rocking with Michael Johns Live in Manila 2008

Wow. I just came back from Greenbelt 3 Park, where Michael Johns did his last show here in Manila (21 November 2008). I was so torn up that I couldn’t go to his show at Glorietta two days ago, but I had stuff to do. For some strange reason, I forgot to call to reserve…

More on Lea Salonga in Cinderella 2008

As I mentioned in my previous blog entry, I saw Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella last August 10. I must admit, I only saw it because my mom wanted to, and since it was her birthday, I had to agree. Of course I’ve always wanted to see Lea Salonga perform live, but I would have preferred…

Watching Lea Salonga in Cinderella 2008

To celebrate my mother’s birthday last 11 August 2008, we watched Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella along with my boyfriend, Sidney, and my grandmother, Lola Nanding, who was here for her yearly visit from Australia. It was everybody’s first time to watch a production at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the first time to…

Alicia Keys Live in Manila 2008

  I’ve always loved Alicia Keys because she’s my age, she plays the piano (and a pink piano too in her Karma music video), she has a big voice that sounds bluesy, and she’s got STYLE. And to top it all off, she reminds me of the time I first started going out with my boyfriend,…

High School Musical: The Ice Tour (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my first entry, I watched High School Musical: The Ice Tour in Araneta Coliseum (Quezon City, Philippines) in July 2008 with my niece Raicielle, nephew Brian and boyfriend Sidney. The second half of the show told the story of HSM2. When the final school bell rang, signifying the beginning of the…
