Cirque Du Soleil / Circus of the Sun

Always wanted to know this, have any of the readers been to a Cirque Du Soleil performance? I know they've never been to this country or even Singapore, but it's one of the best, if not the ultimate best modern circus, and musical performance anywhere. Watched them a few times on tv, but the most striking would be Celine Dion's resident performance in Las Vegas with a CDS performance created by Dragone, the mastermind behind many of CDS's magic. Try YouTube for many of their amazing performances, and do leave a message if anyone experienced this magical show.

Watch this Alegria music vid by the CDS traveling troupe; Alegria.

And this exciting Power Track Act; Alegria.

[keshi!] please go! hahaha...i think you would love it. I wonder how it feels watching it from there itself? You can check their site for the latest scheduling. they have designed a new act, so Im not sure if Alegria is still on.

[Q9] Truly Q9, the details are amazing and they're flawless. Even their comedy routines are really mesmerizing.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
