Feared Soldier~ Sailor Saturn (Seramyu) Digital Painting

4th June 2017

Dear Chibi,

I once joked about only doing one digital painting per year… and it looks like that’s actually happening XD. Well, here it is! This is my first time painting Japanese singer Karin Takahashi as Sailor Saturn from the Sailor Moon Musical Un Nouveau Voyage :D I really enjoyed her performance and had the sudden urge to do a Sailor Moon fanart (it’s been a long time!)

I end up spending my entire weekend at the computer with my wacom tablet. All up, it took around 24 hours to finish. I’m really quite happy with how it turned out :) I took some liberties with her eyes to give it a more anime-ish feel. Hopefully she still has some resemblance to Karin XD

See it come together (Work in progress below)

A Whole New World ~ Aladdin The Musical

18th March 2017

Dear Chibi,

Aladdin Musical @Captiol Theatre Sydney

Last night Kaz and I got to see Disney’s Aladdin musical performed at the beautiful Capitol Theatre. We were on the third row seating near the middle, so our view was amazing! WE COULD SEE ALL THE DETAILS! I’ve never sat so close to the front before and it really makes a huge difference seeing all the characters faces and expressions. There’s so much glitter and sparkles (It almost got blinding at times). We also had streamers falling over us. I was thoroughly impressed by the production quality, the special effects and all the backdrops left me in awe. There was just so much energy from the cast it made for a very fun evening :D Of course, the humor was brilliant also. The Genie stole the show, but other characters also had their moments (Iago cracks me up) I had a grin on my face the entire night and now my cheeks slightly hurt ^^” All in all, I had a fantastic night :D

Aladdin Musical

Best scene hands-down was the MAGIC CARPET SCENE OMG IT WAS BEAUTIFUL :’D Even sitting so closely, it was hard to see it being hung on anything. I also loved the cave scene, that was really spectacular.

Sailor Moon Musical ~Amour Eternal viewing

30th December 2016

Dear Chibi,

It’s time for our annual Seramyu viewing again! This year’s performance is titled “Amour Eternal” based on the 4th season known as SuperS/Dream Arc. Fans don’t often quote the 4th season as their favourite, but it’s still enjoyable nevertheless and has a fun group of villains. I’m so glad the Outer Senshi return, because I loved them so much in ‘Un Nouveau Voyage’!

Before we started, I made spaghetti bolognese for lunch and Kat brought along a plate of spinach cob dip! Yum!

25th December 2015

Dear Chibi,

SailorMoon-UnNouveauVoyage09

Last year, Kaz and I were lucky enough to see the Sailor Moon Musical ‘Petit Etrangere live at AiiA Theatre in Tokyo! It was a very magical experience :D This year there was a third musical production based on ‘Sailor Moon S/Infinity Arc’, titled ‘Un Nouveau Voyage’! This is one of our favourite Sailor Moon seasons because it marks the debut of Sailor Uranus, Neptune and Saturn~ AHHH!! :D <333 Now I wish we had gone to see this one live too!!

On Christmas Eve, I invited Kaz and Kat over to watch the performance together ^^ It was so AWESOME.

Part 1: I flew to Japan for the Sailor Moon Musical (and it was awesome!)

29th August 2014

Dear Chibi,

I’m finally back from my “SAILOR MOON TRIP TO JAPAN” adventure~ flying to Tokyo for the Sailor Moon Musical :D Instead of always ‘wishing I was there’, I decided I was going to make it happen this time. The idea itself excited me just as much as being there :D Sailor Moon is one of my most favourite things ever, so being able to watch a live show for its 20th Anniversary, meeting other moonies, buying merch and shopping in Tokyo in general (I LOVE JAPAN)~ was going to be great. So the journey begins, with just me and Kaz (my twin sister) who’s also into Sailor Moon!

Unfortunately, the trip didn’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. The moment I got off the plane from Narita Airport, I was hit with the crazy humidity and 36°C heat and got sick… so sick that I end up wasting an entire day lying on a couch without air con :’D Thankfully, Kaz came home that night with some dinner and meds for me :D She spent the day exploring Shibuya herself.

Kaz with our 7-Eleven dinner :’D We stayed in Shin-Okubo.

The next day was the day of the the Musical~ Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon: Petite Étrangèr :D :D Brad helped us and Cycyn get tickets to the first show, so we met up to see it together. Both Brad and Cycyn have been my long-time online Sailor Moon friends, and it was my first time meeting Cycyn in person!! SHE IS SO CUTE AND BUBBLY!! AHHH I’M SO HAPPY I COULD FINALLY MEET HER :D!! (She’s even appeared in my dream before…lol that sounds kinda creepy XD)

Wicked – The Broadway Musical

10th March 2010

Dear Chibi,

Last night at 8pm, Jacky and I went to see WICKED- The Broadway Musical at the Capitol Theatre :) It was the first time I’ve ever seen a live musical, and going inside Capitol Theatre. It was quite an amazing experience O_O! I was just mesmerized by all the shiny glitter and lights.. the atmosphere was quite something.  We felt under-dressed though, hahah! We had no idea it was such a dressy occasion but I guess that made it more special. (And now we know.. for next time..xD)

We end up getting pretty good seats and thanks to Kaz it was discounted too, yay~Too bad she couldn’t see it with us.

Wicked Amanda Harrison and Lucy Durack

Elphaba & Galinda

We’ve never seen The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, so didn’t have any idea what to expect story-wise (I didn’t watch any trailers either).  All I knew was that there’s a Tin-man, scarecrow and a girl…and they journey together… yeah.. XD Fortunately, watching this musical wasn’t confusing at all, though there were many references I’m sure fans would have enjoyed :) Today I started reading up on The Wizard of Oz and thought the links were fascinating! I really enjoyed watching the performance, it was humorous and entertaining. I thought the most impressive part was the singing, particularly Jemma Rix who played Elphaba..she’s INCREDIBLE!!! I know they’re pros.. but still, how can she sing so well..so flawlessly, act, remember her lines, dance at the same time? Galinda was pretty funny, and although she had a vain and irritating personality, she really grew on me.

There were some parts that were slightly creepy – I don’t like witches very much….green faces in dark capes don’t go well with me, lol. Good thing I didn’t get nightmares ^_^

It finished around 11pm so by then we were both really sleepy and tired. Worth watching though :D
