 WAS I invited?
YES I was!
16th October 2009... after a hard day's work preparing for 
a high tea the next day in our house, 
my pic gave a surprise call
"Do you wanna go?"
"To the orchestra in Philharmonic?"
"But I still have to clear this, clear that..."
"Are you sure you don't want to go?  Think about it"
"Aaaah well... Oh ok, everyone's going out tonight and I would be alone at home"
"So, you are coming, right?"
"Okay, what time are we leaving?" 
My oh MY! Suddenly my excitement caught up with me... (so soon???)

Fri 16 Oct 2009, 8.30pm

Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
Carl Davis conductor

The Big Country

WE were "chauffeur driven" by my young cousin, Amin who "owned the tickets" who was home on a holiday here with his beloved family from his work place in Doha, Qatar. According to his lovely wife, Iz, she did not want "extra orchestra" coming from their baby Zara and their first born, Zachary.  So, we  (me and their mom- grandma bloggers)  were jumping into their wagon and arrived just a little early with ample time to share some snacks.  We were in the Suite section of the Hall.

While in the lounge, I managed these snap shots to share with my beloved blogging friends.  They are from my phone cam.  Thus poor quality snaps.  
But I hope you still enjoy my postings with lights almost everywhere.

A view in front of me. The door on its right leads to the grand hall.

This is the top view, strongly sitting above my head.

A view from my back (?), was it? Nope!  Apparently... 
It was the tea section.


Ahaah!  Before the show started I was naughty.  I managed this snap just before the announcement came with a gracious reminder about 
using camera, notto forget to turn off mobiles and all kinds of beepers.

Thank you for taking Mummy out tonight!!! A remark of gratitude coming from Za.
