Intention of Desire & Desired

When you intent to desire something, the desired must understand the intention. ;)

You're So Vain by Carly Simon

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror as
You watched yourself gavotte

And all the girls
Dreamed that they'd
Be your partner
They'd be your partner and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
When you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me

I had some dreams
They were clouds
In my coffee
Clouds in my coffee and

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your near jet to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not you're with

Some underworld spy
Or the wife
Of a close friend
Wife of a close friend and

1972 till date, the song still holds true.

Dance Again with Jennifer Lopez!

As you may already have guessed after reading the blog for a while, I love the atmosphere of a live event, be it concerts, F1 races, rugby matches, football games, theatre and dance.

So when Jennifer Lopez is having her inaugural concert in Singapore, guess who got all I-can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-some-tickets? 

However, it didn't seem like my close friends and colleagues were on the same page as me. When I announced excitedly to everyone that JLo is coming to Singapore, all that I received were disinterested stares. I must have asked at least 20 people if they were interested to go to JLo's concert with me and all I got were "I'm not a fan". Nobody cared for JLo's infamous ass! How is that even remotely possible? Hello, people? I am not a fan too but one would jump at the chance to view that derriere in person, or so one would think! 

When Nadia told me a few days ago that she could get me tickets for $99 (promotional price which I never got to enjoy cos nobody wanted to go with me), I was determined to find that someone who'd go with me. As a last ditch effort, I posted on FB.
This is what happens when you post on social media - nobody treats it seriously. To cut the long story short, I did manage to "convince" three others (namely Winnie, Rudy and Jasper) to go with me. Honestly, $99 is a bargain for an international act like JLo! 

So big day has finally arrived today! It started raining at 6pm this evening and this is a rain or shine event. SAY WHAT?! Yes, it was an outdoor concert like Madonna's and the F1 concerts. As the time approached 7.30pm, I kept saying "The rain will stop. We don't need umbrellas!" But Rudy refused to believe me and I took shelter under the umbrella while waiting in line. I was secretly pleased that I didn't have to brave the rain or my non-waterproof mascara would mean I'd make a bigger entrance than JLo. Haha. In the end, we were handed ponchos (umbrellas not allowed into the premises) and by 8pm, the rain stopped! Woohoo~ 

The not so good news was that the rain made the concert arena muddy and that didn't bore well with my suede leather shoes. In the end, someone (read: me) had the clever idea of me wrapping my shoes with the plastic poncho. Well, since it wasn't raining anymore, I might as well put the poncho to other  and better use - to protected my beloved shoes. I think I made quite a fashion statement in these poncho-wrapped wedges. Marc Jacobs should soooo be stealing this idea for his Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Some other strangers, upon seeing my clever contraption, followed suit. With such superior cognitive ability, I wonder why I haven't already found the cure for cancer. I know right!

If my veteran concert-going experience had taught me anything, it's that ALL concerts always start an hour (or more) later than scheduled. While waiting with a beer in my hand, I was thinking the show better be worth my time. It's a Tuesday night and I have pull myself out of bed to go to work tomorrow...

My oh my, JLo put on a show that exceeded my expectations by a mile! Or many miles, for that matter. She sang, she danced, she shook her booty, she screamed, she laughed, she flirted, she changed many times(!), she talked, and she performed liked how a diva should! I had so much fun grooving to her previous #1 hits that she belted throughout the night and I was surprised by how many of her songs I knew. I am totally impressed! By myself and her.

Sidetrack: So many awesome concerts this year - Jessie J, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Katy Perry, JLo. Whatever would I have to do next year to fulfil my concert lust? Sidetrack end.

The night concluded with me posting the kind of non-serious stuff which one would post on FB "Dance again with JLo! That's one fine piece of ass! *yumz*— with Winnie Lin and 2 others at The Meadow @ Garden By The Bay."
