Another sunny place
I'm lucky I know
But I wanna go home...
- Home, by Michael Buble
Yes, learning new songs - it's a never-ending process in my life.
Home was something I ought to know, but never got down to learning.
Printed the lyrics, youtubed it, and started transcribing the melody,
and this phrase struck me.
i love it.
Shanghai was unexpectedly cold, everyone was unprepared.
Right before going onstage,
I told David Tan,
"I'm already looking forward to the flight back home already, something is very wrong."
and he said,
"Yes, something is very wrong."
Yes I was shimmying up to DT in this little dress freezing my ass off.
Of course courtesy of my almost upskirt pic of aforementioned frozen butt,
this pic HAD TO appear in most papers in his concert review.
Oh, check out DT's multifarious new coat :)
He changed his outfits for this encore concert.
Giraffe and floral print spectacular!
We were in Shanghai last July
for the opening act of his 123 We Are All Wooden Men Tour,
and it was a huge success, so were were back again!
it had been awhile since we performed in an outdoor venue,
and just the number of people X the passion/screaming they exhibited
really drove me from wanting-to-go-home to a mad adrenaline rush :)
i took refuge in backstage (or downstage) from the cold whenever I could.
this staircase leads up to the fire and glory that is ONSTAGE :)
live editing of concert
the band plays 大风吹!
it started from this.
jamie and casey exchanging instruments.
(pix from my sony ericcson.
i lost my camera charger :( )
band leader eggs everybody on
david tan is liberace.
ujang takes on a different beat
elisa and i just laugh and take pix LOL
all this happened during the Marry Me Today opening segment,
while DT was whirling around with the dancer babes,
oblivious to the changes, but hearing very obviously that SOMETHING WAS WRONG.
and.... Jamie and Casey just had to pull this again during the concert itself.
POWER to spontaneity! :D
a very coincidental contrast:
i'm literally the 合音天使 with my full-on white outfit
complete with silver shoes and grey bag,
while elisa is fully decked in black.
hawking earrings by the roadside with an umbrella
Green Massage, next to Bellagio Cafe (our fav supper place) near 新天地
awfully posh and zen.
how about an origami lantern the size of 2 cows,
floating peacefully above a sandpit, i mean, a zen sand garden,
while you get your feet kneaded?
a mysterious buddha hand lighting my way to the toilet
i love the city area
i love the airport :)
till next time, shanghai!
