When Elmo grows up

I heard about this show on radio the last couple of weeks but it never occurred to me to bring Yiu Yiu to watch, since she was never a fan of Sesame Street. The only two characters she knows are Elmo and Cookie Monster :-)

Anyway, last Friday, my younger sister called to say that her clients gave her few free tickets for the last show on Sunday, and asked if I would want to bring Yiu Yiu along. Got free tickets of course go la :-) So off we went, three adults and three children, to Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil on Sunday, for the 8.30pm show.

The moment we settled into our seats, Yiu Yiu said, "Mummy, we came here before one. The Disney Princess show remember? Last time we sit (sat) there one, remember?" This girl really amazes me sometimes with the things that she remembers. Many a times, she'll remember things from the past and tells me about them – things which I myself can't remember :-)

Anyway, the stage seems quite small and there were not many people at that last show. But the moment the lights were dimmed and the characters appeared, it was totally entertaining. There was 90 minutes of lively songs and dance, and awesome backdrops. Even this cynical mummy enjoyed herself thoroughly.

The opening act

This song is about being a cowboy

And this about being a forest ranger

And this is obviously being a fire fighter

Can't remember this song...train driver perhaps?

The final song...dunno why they call this the Pageant

A very happy girl at the end

So what do you want to be when you grow up?

Mamapumpkin - quite low profile I think. I only heard some ads on the radio while driving to work.

smallkucing/Jazz - it was really quite fun.

Your camera is good.. can take such clear photos of the stage, and I'm sure it's in low light condition.

ZMM - I think it's the same model as your la, 450D.
