The rare things that you do..
tadaaa . ni gambar tangkap sendiri
I missed the badminton session with the kamcheng boys for this ? Imagine that.. haks.. Well , though i am a true fan of theatres , bangsawans , musicals , orchestra.. but dance ? haks.. i was indeed my first time. Well , not my idea really but i was coaxed by my dear wifey to attend the much acclaimed and publisiced dance show.. WILD ZEBRA..
favourite scene.. the rams..
Did i enjoy it ? haks.. i would be lying if i said yes ! half the time i was looking at my watch hoping that it will end soon ; as i may still have that tiny chance to go and play badminton ! in fact , i brought my gear along in the car !!! I was dissapointed though as there was no way that the show would end before 11 pm !!
At least i realize that dance is not my thing. I can't imagine watching through the Ramayana or Mahabrata ! haks.. its just not to my liking. I just cannot appreciate their movement or feel the sadness of unfulfilled love. haks.. I did laugh though when there were scenes of other animals besides the zebra... rams , ducks and monkey ! it was enjoyable.. and the crowd did appreciate it..
A bit of the synopsis ( at least from what i understood in the 2 and a half hour dance show.. ) : it was about the forbidden love between princess zebra and wild zebra prince. The Old Queen Bear ( princess's mother laa ) was hunting all the wild zebras for her wardrobe and magic mantle.. and surprise-surprise ; prince wild zebra was the 100th zebra to be killed for her to achieve the magic mantle. And the love affair happen la.. In the end , the princess died while trying to save his loved one.. well , the scene was suppose to be tragic , some people actually cried.. but me.. haks.. tak sampai la pulak the message..
