The Phantom of the Opera is Enchanting!

It’s been a week and I’m still not over the feels of The Phantom of the Opera! The music plays endlessly in my head. Would you believe that I’m currently listening to its soundtrack in Spotify while writing this? Hahaha! πŸ˜‚πŸŽΆπŸŽ­

It’s been two years since I went to watch the theater, with Wicked back in 2017. When I found out that The Phantom of the Opera is coming back here in Manila, I decided to go without a speck of doubt. I invited my family along. My aunt loved the movie, and for sure, she would love the theater even more!

And just like that, we bought tickets right away! Together we went to The Theater at Solaire last March 7 for the evening show. The whole place was all about POTO feels! 



Hi guys! I'm beside the POTO poster

....and also by the entrance! 

Me and my family at the mirrors photo booth.

Woah! That sculpture will put you further in the feels~

Of course, the mask has a food version, too! 

Nearing 8PM, we were called to go inside for the show was about to start! πŸ˜ƒ Excitement filled my heart because entering the theater is like going into a new world. 


Something wonderful is going to happen on that stage!


Excited for Phantom!

And when the lights came off, the show completely consumed my attention. Sorry guys, taking photos of the scenes is not allowed. But I tell you, the show will blow your mind! 

The first scene with the chandelier, with all its captivating lights and movements, literally gave me a jaw dropping experience. Literally, yes. I knew it would be good, but it exceeded my expectations. Makes me wonder how they did that. 😲

The main cast, Jonathan Roxmouth (Phantom), Clara Verdier (Christine Daae), and Matt Leisy (Raoul Vicomte de Chagny) were impeccable in their acting. Their singing are all enchanting! I got goosebumps at every scene, the voices of all the main and supporting actors… and the harmony of the orchestra! The sets, costumes, the props! Everything was well done and well coordinated. 

And here’s the thing, I have watched the movie a lot of times. But it was the theater that gave depth to the experience. I already knew the ending, but it didn’t stop me from getting emotional, too. 😭 Overall, the performance was spellbinding! The thunderous applause of the audience was proof! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»


Bravo to the cast!




And if at the end, you too, would be mesmerized by the show, you can check out the souvenir shops for these gorgeous finds! I personally love the Phantom bear. Cutieee~ 


Those Phantom bears! :D

Trinkets mugs, aaaand masks

Shirts and hoodies, too!

Woah! Pins and more souvenirs!

I have been smitten by the Phantom. The Angel of Music has entranced me! I left the theater with The Phantom of the Opera singing in my head... 

🎢 “And in this labyrinth,
Where night is blind,
The Phantom of the Opera is there,
Inside your mind.” 🎼🎀🎭

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
