it is michael jackson- the king of pop.....and he really deserves the title. no contention.
the initial plan was to go watch the time traveller's wife....but while in the queue, i noticed that they were actually selling tickets to mj's this is it!!! and i thought they were all sold out in malaysia. i must have mixed up with the newspaper report i read....were the tickets sold out in the states???
i bought the 4p.m. tickets and my hall was not full at all. it was soo cold, luckily i brought my jacket along. next to me was a middle-aged woman, you can say that there were ppl of all ages there. there was a child coughing behind onto my hair and kept rubbing the headrest. it got me really irritated. luckily the seat next to mine was empty and i jumped there.
my verdict for the docu-concert? 9 out of 10. it was good. too bad we were all there on the seats. at some songs, you actually felt like jumping and dancing there. i could imagine one whole hall of mj fans who booked the place for their private screening and enjoying the time of their life with their idol. that would be ideal. i couldn't help tapping and singing along too. i saw my friend there already swaying to the music and beat and actually singing the songs out. kenny ortega was awesome to have produced that concert. it would be the best concert ever performed....if it was ever performed live. in the meantime, it is the best ever concert on the silver screen. and i felt it was tooooo short. not enuf!!
you could really see what a talented performer mj was. he knew what he wanted in the concert, he knew every bit of his song, he was no 'diva', he worked with everyone, he gave opportunity to the crew to shine, etc.
the only minor mistake was....well i guess they din have time to do this.....at the end credit, they only printed michael jackson's name as the person who wrote the song 'this is it'. if you have been following entertainment news, you would have known that paul anka collaborated with him in this song and they have rectified the mistake in giving all credits to mj.
so if you like music, go watch this movie. try to go during office hours, i am sure you will be able to get tickets.
moving on....well, i din buy anything for myself in midvalley. hehee...i am not surprised. i din go down with the intention to shop you see. so there was no urge at all. in fact, it was my friend who shopped. she bought a pair of shoes and a watch. well, the things i bought were krispy kreme original glazed doughnuts (half dozen), gion bread and xxl crispy fried chicken for grandpa. all carbs huh??? they better help me finish some....haha...imagine forcing doughnut to grandma and mom. dad is also health-conscious and i dun think he is a doughnut fan. i will be stuffed.
talking about stuffed, well we were stuffed for dinner. as planned...we went to tony roma's at the gardens. the meal came up to around rm130 and these were what we had:
complimentary bread, seafood chowder, ribs sampler (in four flavors: Original, Carolina Honeys™, Blue Ridge Smokies™ and Tony Roma’s Red Hots™) and
Tony’s Sampler (A trio of appetizers - Red Hot Buffalo Wings, Spinach Dip and signature Onion Loaf matched with Bleu cheese dressing, salsa, sour cream and house BBQ dipping sauce. )
i felt the food was quite expensive. the ribs were rm60 and the starter was rm39 if i was not wrong. imagine paying rm40 for potato skin, onions and few pieces of chicken. overpriced. the meat on the ribs also was not much. i think the ones we had at chilli's with atticus was better. the ones i had today was a bit dry....overdone.
phew...my hair is almost dry now. tomorrow is an early one. have to go to work ah.....my conscience does not permit me to go and get an mc. any employer interested to hire such worker??
alarm is set at 5.45a.m. yawn.............zzzz...snort snort
