After Vivo city, we took an MRT and headed to Pearl Centre. We were still planning to go out of the country to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong and this centre has many travel agencies. We didn't find any nice offers, that weren't by bus in the building till we walked outside of the centre. Less than a meter away, there it was an offer, an interesting one too, so we walked in and talked a bit. A few hours later, we had booked three tickets to Hong Kong! We are going there from 21 July till the 25th. I'm looking forward to it! Fuwa >.<
Today, we went to Esplanade (a beautiful, two duran-like, concert building) to listen to music played by the Singapore Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Lan Shui. It turns out that we know him from more than fifteen years ago - when he was a student, he stayed at our place for awhile - Surprisingly, he called my younger brother personally after an email message this afternoon. How amazing is that?!
The first song that was played during the "Prize Premieres" concert was "Flute Concerto" composed by Zhou Long. It was a world premiere and the flute soloists was Sharon Bezaly. The music was very modern and miss Bezaly played the alt flute, flute and piccolo. Unfortunately it wasn't my cup of tea, but the next song was. It is called "Symphony No. 2 in F minor, Op. 27" composed by Rachmaninov. It was the highlight of the evening. Lan Shui was moving intensively and with every stroke another beautiful melody was played, hard, loud, soft... It was intense, exiting and beautiful! I loved this performance ^^ They were great and amazing!
Before the concert, actually the days before, I was thinking of going there wearing a dress because the dresscode might be formal. I found out today, that we didn't have to wear formal clothes. Thank goodness, because I haven't found a dress yet... A dress... Me in a dress... A skirt is plausible these days but a dress? Even though it is impossible at the moment, maybe it won't be by September. There will be a formal dinner in Antwerp for Singaporean's, who have left Singapore to live somewhere else in the world. I wonder, how I'll manage that. Oh well, that is still far away.
I might not be able to post tomorrow, so a short plan of what I'm going to do tomorrow. Tomorrow, I'll go to the Expo in Singapore near the Changi Airport, where there will be a library booksale with my younger brother. Hopefully, we will find a lot of books.
Zzzz... I'm so tired... Today is the first time we came home so late... Half past eleven... It's 1 am already... Night night everyone and talk to you soon!
