Mamma Mia in Auckland.






The water engineer and I went for a night of nostalgia, a time when we were young and unmarried and unburden with household and marital and parental responsibilities. I am not exactly a fan of ABBA, though I like some songs like Fernando. But the water engineer liked their song so much that he played it over and over that our children even got to know their songs. The kids sing and gyrate to Mamma Mia.

We headed to The Civic Theatre , and joined audience of golden oldies and young fans. Many danced and clapped and sang and waved their hands and glow sticks with the performance. It was the opening night here in Auckland, and I am sure with the response of the audience, the performers had a very warm fuzzy feeling. That's Aucklanders for you.

On our way home, the water engineer felt sad that they didn't sing his fav song, Fernando. What a surprise! I didn't know that before.

We had also watched Mamma Mia! The Movie, starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan. I thought this movie was quite funny especially watching Pierce Brosnan sing. I thought it was quite painful.

Do click to the link of the Civic Theatre. This is such a beautiful grand old lady. It is a heritage building, I can't take a photos to show you.

Dear Ann
Just read your comment left in my blog (Bread fruit). Thanks. Today I have just uploaded my article on Sirih.

Have you learned that my uncle (opposite your house) - Embang Road passed away last year? Chiong and his wife are in Singapre. Ping is now in KL. The youngest daughter is in Singapore. Maggie is in UK. My aunt has shrunken in size (too much grief).
