^ Ako rin! Naenjoy ko kasi yung Zaia in Macau kaya go na go ako dito. Napakacolorful and nice music. :)

I'll wait for Andrew Lloyd Webber reviews muna sa thread na 'to before I buy tickets. I imagine the show to be the kind that would give me goosebumps. Sana nga ganon ka-enthralling.

^ Good for you. Hope you enjoy it! :)

Anyway, we saw Varekai last night. Grabeng ulan and baha ang hinarap namin mapanood lang 'to ha. 1:00 AM na ko nakarating ng bahay.

Was it worth it? Yes.

It was my second Cirque du Soleil. First ko was Zaia in Macau. Mas nagustuhan ko Zaia kasi big production naman talaga yon as seen sa mga props and all. Varekai is also nice pero mas intimate yung setting. Maliit lang yung stage and less number of artists compared to Zaia.

I like that the Cirque set up a "big top" sa Quirino Grandstand. I love the music and the colorful costumes. Natutuwa rin ako kasi napakaappreciative ng mga Pinoys. They are clap after each act. Unlike sa Macau na keber lang mga audience. Kagabi, standing ovation pa talaga.

So, that's my mini review. Ayoko magkwento ng anything about the show para di ko naman i-ruin for you guys yung mga mangyayari. :)

^Talaga, sis?  My friends and I are super excited for tomorrow. :D  I hope the Big Top holds up to the weather.  I somehow missed Zaia in Macau.  Kaya nung nalaman ko na pupunta ang Cirque du Soleil dito, book agad. ;D

^^Lucky you, sis! ;)  Kami kasi, the first week that the tickets went on sale, hindi na kami nag-isip.  Bili agad.  Haha...  Effort to with the weather.  Pero excited pa din kami.  Tatlong buwan din namin 'tong inantay. :)

^ 2 hours. Pero may 25-minute intermission. Hindi lang sila rain or shine, they really started on time! Sabi ko pa naman baka hindi magstart on time kasi baka mag intay pa ng mga dadating na natraffic dahil sa bagyo.

Kaloka nga, binabaha yung area na yon. Lulusong ka sa baha pag nagkataon, so be prepared. (Dala ka ng bota or slippers). Ang parking nila, nasa labas. Yung big top, nasa loob ng fenced area. Grabe nakalubog na kagabi yung ibang sasakyan tapos nakapaa na yung mga audience papasok dahil nga baha. May dropoff area naman pero kawawa ang driver dahil no choice sya kundi lumabas ulit at dun magpark tapos lumusong sa baha para makapasok sa big top. Ang ginawa namin, pinasok namin sa loob ng fenced area tapos nagpark sa may damuhan sa bandang gilid. Buti pinayagan na kami.

^Wow.  I have to keep those things in mind.  Sa Quirino sila nag-set up, diba?  I may have to consider what to wear.  Wala namang dress code diba?

^^We didn't get it on discount, sis.  Funny nga kasi the week before we found out, we were talking about Cirque du Soleil and which of their shows we'd like to watch.  Sabi namin, e pagkakagastusan talaga namin ang Cirque kung sakali.  A week later, tinawagan ako ng friend ko when she saw the billboard while driving on Magallanes.  That same night, usap agad kami.  Before the week ended, naka-book na kami.  Ganun kami ka-excited.  Di na naghanap ng discount. ;D

Nag-aantay din ako ng feedback on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

Sa mga manunuod ng Verakai at nasa Level 1, saang section ba maganda? I was about to purchase na kasi kaso nalito ako saan ba magandang pwesto. Kung nasa Section 200 something na nasa center or yung Section 100 something na nasa left and right.

May napili na rin akong date kung kelangan ko mapapanuod yung musical. Bili nalang ako bukas ng ticket sa Ticketworld. Gusto ko kasi mamili ng seat kesa dun online na sila nagbibigay ng seat.

This post inspired me to go ahead with watching the two shows alone :)

^ Maliit lang sa loob ng big top. Kahit nasa likod na likod ka, kita mo. So kung ako, sa gitna na lang siguro pipiliin ko. Basta yung Section 200 na pinakaunang row ang pipiliin ko.

Premium tickets yung amin. Pinakaharap ng Section 200. Row J. Gitnang gitna. Pagdating namin sa venue, kaloka may nakaupo sa seats namin. So ginawa nila, nilipat na lang kami sa Section 102, Row I. So mas malapit kami sa stage ng konti. Di sila mahigpit sa seats. Parang pwede lumipat pag vacant naman yung seat.

^Row J din kami.  Sa pinaka-unahan ng Section 200.  So gitna din talaga.  Kita mo lahat.  Daanan pa ng performers. :P  Kami naman, inaantay namin yung kasama namin, may biglang umupo sa seat nila.  Kaloka si ate.  Sinabihan na lang namin na may nakaupo dun.
