BACKSTREET BOYS – in Vancouver


OMG OMG OMG, I was suddenly 15 years old again and gaga-ing over Nick Carter… *sigh*. It’s quite a feeling, watching your fave boyband in concert. Your biggest crush from over a decade ago. Your teenage love. And looking at where you are, what you have done, regardless of what you have or have not accomplish. It’s almost surreal. Takes you back to those rooms, those cassette tape, those walkman/tape player….
The boys did a fantastic job, the show was epic! and I was oh so glad of the picture that I managed to take, with my ol’ point-and-shoot camera. Not too happy about someone who ‘steal’ my pic on FB and post-it as their own. (Yes, I’m tad particular about my photos, and ‘friends’ who try to take credits. Being a bit bitter here) Anyhoo… suffice to say, I thoroughly enjoy my 2nd concert. I wished I had purchased the pit tickets (right next to stage), but I probably would have to go alone, if that’s the case… maybe next time….

Here are the songs that was played…. to the T…

  1. The Call
  2. Don’t Want You Back
  3. Incomplete
  4. Permanent Stain
  5. All I Have to Give
  6. As Long As You Love Me
  7. Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)
  8. Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely
  9. Breathe
  10. I’ll Never Break Your Heart
  11. We’ve Got It Goin’ On
  12. 10,000 Promises
  13. Madeleine
  14. Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)
  15. The One
  16. Love Somebody
  17. In A World Like This
  18. I Want It That Way
  19. Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)


20. Larger Than Life



Blue Man Group in Vancouver!


source- Blue Man Group official website

Prior to last night, I have never heard of Blue Man Group. Okay, prior to bf mentioning about them, about a month at most, before last night, I have never heard of them. But I googled them online, and it looks like something I’d enjoy, so we went.
And yes, I did enjoy it a lot. The humour, the colourful display, the music, and the ambiance. Especially for the price we paid. I was told we paid approximately group price. Got the tickets from one of those coupon websites.

And we also got a decent seat. Now, if you’d like to join in the ‘festivities’ and whatnot, you might want to pick seats that’s on the lower level. But if you like a bird eye’s view of things, our seats were the best! Now if only I had my camera, or we’re allowed to take picture…. oh the colours…

Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon – checked!

I’m finally signed up..  to SeaWheeze Marathon by Lululemon. It’s been a while since I did any running event. Well it’s been awhile since I ran, period. Now I’m still exercising, just not running. I need to get cold weather running gear if I want to run here. And they are NOT cheap. so, for now, I’m sticking with my exercise routine, and maybe run on treadmill for training. I know it’s not the same, but I can’t have it both ways.

So anyway, I guess the run is full now. Surprised, but no surprise there, considering the website crash on the actual registration day, 23 Jan 2014. I tried for a good 3-4 hours before they just shutdown the website. Then postponed the registration to 3 Feb. I guess 10,000 spots are not big enough. I know the last Standard Chartered Run in Singapore that I did (probably a good 3-4 years ago), catered to 50,000 runner and it was sold out. Granted that the fee was much cheaper, but Singapore is so small, and they can cater 50,000 people. Just wondering why Vancouver can’t, that’s all.

So anyway, yay me, but woe is me. Cost $128 to enter the race and another $25 for extra ticket to Sunset Festival. Hopefully it’s worth it, the festival, I mean. I am so looking forward to the run itself. Yea, I know, there are other half-marathon, but not many in the summer. And I was looking at Scotiabank Marathon, but when I started looking, the registration was already closed. So here I am… Good Luck me!
