Swan Lake

Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake performed by the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre with Irina Kolesnikova as Odette (her feet have an amazing arch!) was absolutely, absolutely amazing :))). Such a beautiful ballet.

There's going to be another version performed by the English National Ballet next summer... see here.

Now I wanna watch The Nutcraker Suite too!

Ps. I wouldn't recommend arena seats in the Royal Albert Hall.

An old hymn came to mind today...

On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand...

Missing home

I am missing home!

O well, at least there's Swan Lake to look forward to tommorrow night... that's one thing to strike off my list. Yay! And then I'll finally be moving to my new place and soon after there's Barcelona! Woohoo!

Although in the midst of all that, there's an essay to be completed, err, 2 essays actually... One can't have everything. :P

Yummy Thai lunch off Oxford St

Had a lovely lunch yesterday... with Ju Li, Harry and several of their friends from home.

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Today is the day I hunker down and get through the reading (all? I dare not say) that I'm supposed to do in light that it's already Week 5 of the term. :P

On a lighter note, I discovered a cute lil shop in Covent Garden selling cute tees and knick-knacks that girls will love.... it'a called David & Goliath. Here's something I bought myself since Christmas is round the corner ... ;) Check out!

Pride and Prejudice

The BBC series is beautifully made... can't believe that I've only just discovered it! It's so so good... it but gives me hope! :)

Weekend last with the Seets in Woking

Guy Fawkes

Tonight, London's skies are alight with displays of fireworks... all going off almost simultaneously! There're 3 or 4 flashes in different areas at any one moment in time.. lovely!
