Love me. That's all I ask of you.

Last night my good friend and I went to see the Phantom of the Opera.
 When I first learned that they will be staging the Phantom at the CCP a year ago, I was beside myself with excitement. Finally! Something to look forward to this 2012! I remember when Cats was staged in Manila, I absolutely loved the show that I watched it three times. I was readying myself for the same experience with Phantom but because my schedule does not permit it, I'd have to make do with this one night affair.
The show lasts for two and a half hours. The first part of the program was simply magical from the staging, the songs, the overall effect-- it was all so bewitching! I was so hungry at the time because I didn't get to eat lunch but I was so pleased with the show that I was able to forget about my hunger for a while.

But the 2nd half came and I found myself zoning out. For me, the test of whether the show is good or not is if it is able to keep me "present" the entirety of the show. Present means either I stay awake or fully engrossed in each and every scene. However, during the second half, I found my mind wandering off to where I'd like to eat after the show. I thought I was the only one zoning out but a few minutes after, I saw my friend starting to fall asleep! Lol! So okay, maybe we're just so dead tired and hungry but it is what it is. That was what happened and I'm just relaying it so there. Judge for yourself :)

Still, congratulations to the whole cast! Talent-wise, you guys are phenomenal!
As for my outfit, I decided to go with this short tube dress from Forever 21. I just love how plain it is which makes it the perfect canvass to so many different looks in the future. For last night, I opted to go the "cute" route with this studded peter pan collar and ribbon belt, also from Forever 21.
Here's a closer look at my accessories:
It's blurred, I know, forgive me. And I don't quite get why the dress suddenly became purple? Perhaps it's the lighting. I took this shot when I got home under white light.

So there goes my Phantom of the Opera experience! I can't wait for the next musicale!
