Never in my 22 years have I ever attended a concert - as I have thought it to be expensive and I could jolly well be listening in to the singer's songs on CD in the comfort of my own home.
But today, I attended my 1st @ NUS UCC Hall.
I attended Corrinne May's concert - Beautiful Seed =)
A great concert, I must say. There was a grand piano in the centre of the stage & together with it are drums, guitars, percussions & even strings. And of cos there is Kavin, the Music Director cum manager cum husband of Corrinne May.
Talking about a cool couple team, this must be it..hehe
Anyway with all the live band, the concert was magical. The lightings just made things even better. Well, this could be my 1st time in a concert that is why everything seems so fresh to me. But one thing I can certainly be sure about is that even people who have been to Corrinne May's concert enjoyed it too. =P
Her voice is so powerful yet so full of emotions.
Her voice seems to go so well with the band.
In fact for some moment her songs made me think about those days back then when Eddy courted me by singing her songs. There was a song from her collection used by him back then for my every mood. That is why when she sang those songs, it made me tear abit.
But seems like Eddy enjoyed it more than me cos he was shaking his head, hands & feet to the rhythm but to my IRRITATION.
Its DISTRACTING me~!!! Grrr.....
After the concert, we rushed out to get in the queue for autograph. Omg, when I saw the queue I almost fainted. Its so freakily long. Think there is almost like 100+ people in front of us *faintz*.
Hence explaining why we queued from 11pm all the way to almost 1am before we got there. Yeah~!
In total, I would say that this concert is a success~!
My boss likes Corrinne May's concert too. When I told him that Corrinne May's concert is not some crazy concert where fans stand around, scream and faint but instead all the fans just sitin their cosy seats to enjoy the nice ambience, we started to have a mini discussion about this. Finally, he told me this..
Screaming & waving green light stix is for the young; sitting around & listening is for the old.
I completely son't agree with it at all as I simply like to sit in the soft chair listening in to the concert. Its simply one of life's enjoyment~! =P
This does not mean I am not old right? =S
Anyway, these are my rewards for having queued so long...haha
After one year of tedious endurance & many times wanting to way the white flag and walk away from the scene, I've finally been promoted. I would say that this is really hard-earned effort. How many sleepless nights, sweat and tears have I shed; to this day I have already lost count of it.
But todday my efforts paid off. Yeah! *pops champagne*
This company is still what I perceive it to be - having a healthy working environment & a good boss (except of coz that woman I was talking about). And most importantly some of my good friends are here, this makes leaving hard for me.
But alas, a dream is a dream. It still has to be fufilled lest I live in regret. So here I am fighting hard to get to where I wish to be. But the problem is NO ONE HAS APPROACHED ME YET~!
Haiz...wonder whether the problem lies with me or the ugly world out there.. =(
But anyway, I will perserve~! Hope that tomorrow will be a better day~! =D
