Thanks to Magnum, I received 2 blogger complimentary tickets to London Musical. It was my second time attending their musical, with the first being Magical Musical which I went during their gala opening.
This time around we decided to take Sairah because I figured she’s old enough to attend a musical and secondly, because I knew she would love anything musically related. Oh and my third reason – she’s under 2 making her entry FREE :D *cheapskate mode ON*
It was on a Friday so I made a mad dash home to get ready and by 7.45pm we found ourselves in Sunway Pyramid. There was a car exhibition on display so naturally the husband just HAD to check it out for a while. He’s very annoying that way esp when he trolls the sales people into thinking he might be keen to buy it. After they brief him about the price and specs, he usually runs over to me and proceeds to tell me we can buy this in OZ for the fraction of the price!! Idiot or not??!
Dear fellow audience, today I’m going to tell you why you should buy a vroom vroom car.
For starters, when you drive a car, you wouldn’t have to run around aimlessly on a road. On a side note, why is that young kid on the streets alone without his parents?
You wouldn’t have to take the bus either, or is that a electric powered train? Crap, let me check my notes.
You wouldn’t have to sit on the bus/train (okay it’s starting to look like a train to me!) and put on a sour face just because the air conditioning doesn’t work.
With a car, you can be your own boss and park it whever you want like a sohai coz that’s how we Malaysians roll (btw the four shadows belong to us and my 2 cousins who met us briefly – I’m afraid we were her ONLY audience)
And that concludes why you should buy a car, okie thanks for listening to my speech! *cue standing ovation from mom, dad and both uncles*
That said, the walk into the amphitheatre was a LONG one. That would be my only complain coz by the time we reached the show we were sweating! We had a similiar experience during the other musical and I was almost regretting coming for this one.
But good thing half way through, a buggy service was provided to all patrons so they can reach the theatre even faster. If we were to walk the entire journey I reckon I would just DIE!
Though she looks a lil skeptical here, she enjoyed her ride thoroughly.
I was happy to find out our seats were pretty good – about third row in the front, hurrah! The crowd was pretty decent esp since it’s been weeks since this musical started. Baby girl couldn’t contain herself coz even she knew our seats were good too!
Har har front row you biatches, eat that!
I think the show started 15 minutes after 8pm.
My only worry was whether Sairah would sit through the show quietly, fuss free and that kid made me proud that night. She was very curious and as soon as the show started she begin to clap her hands, gave 110% attention, clapped her hands and even attempted to sing!
Since the seats next to us were rather empty she had her own seat!
And let the show begin!
A little bit of dancing…
A lil bit of clapping….
A lil bit of nose picking coz I think the love story was about to unfold and she just couldn’t contain herself!
A little bit of woot woot y’all….
And maybe the excitment stemmed from looking at the main actor in the middle who was quite the looker, ahem.
A little bit of Vitagen break…
More singing and dancing and jumping around… (that’s actually a song from BabyTV FYI)
She sat like a good girl glued to her fav cartoon for the next 1 hour 15 minutes. It was then that they decided to have a 15 minute break. By that time it was already close to 9.30 pm. The husband just HAD to take her down for a ‘walk’ he said and the next thing I knew Sairah was wrestling with him coz she wanted to go on stage, lol. Can we please scrap the break for the next musical please??!
Let me take centre stage old man, I can do this!!! I was born to be a star!
And everything just went downhill from there because now she didn’t want to sit down quietly but instead was working her way to the stage. God knows they didn’t need an extra dancer for sure, esp since all their dancers were stick thin, ahem
So we did the next best thing any parent would do, we packed up and graciously left :D To me it was a blessing coz as we left, the guy in the buggy gave us a lift all the way back to the entrance We never got that service for the first musical coz it was such a mad rush when everyone left at the same time.
But overall, it was indeed a good musical to attend and I’m still proud that my girl sat through it quietly during the first half. Well done Sairah girl!
The show is still running until 8th of July so there’s still time to catch this musical. For those keen, you may purchase your tickets on AirAsiaRedTix.com and for those who missed the cheap tickets on Groupon, well too bad hor.
So now, am most definitely looking forward to the next free musical by Magnum.
That said, I don’t remember attending any musical as a kid, esp not as a 22 month old toddler so I sure hope Sairah had a blast. Do check out the video here Does she look like a huge fan or what?!
