The magical journey of musicals begins at KLPAC this April

From the dramatic and iconic tunes of Les Misérables, Chicago, and The Phantom of the Opera to the family-friendly soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast and Wicked, this is what music lovers can expect when they attend KL Pac Orchestra's latest offering- Magical Musicals. Held for only three days 7 to 9 April 2017, this is an orchestra performance not to be missed.

The smashing season opener under the baton of Lee Kok Leong will also comprise of  multi-award winning singer and entertainer Tria Aziz, the charming tenor-baritone Joel Wong and trumpet virtuoso Kay Wong Sze Yen.

Always a delight to watch on stage, Tria Aziz is no stranger in the musical scene having performed since she was 12 and appeared in over 20 productions. After winning ntv7’s Audition reality TV show, she went on to bag Best Actress in SHORT+SWEET Musical 2013 and Best Musical Performer at the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards 2014. Her vocal prowess and captivating stage persona makes her a crowd favourite.

Magical Musicals also welcomes back on stage Joel Wong who teamed up with Tria in the 2016 Sudirman tribute One Thousand Million Smiles. When he is not performing with the Young KL Singers, he is a regular feature in musical productions such as Kaki Blue (2009), Songs For A New World (2012 & 2013), Marrying Me (2013), Merrily We Roll Along (2014), Larger Than Life (2014), Cabaret (2015), The Best Of Sondheim “Abridged” (2015) and "Into the Woods" (2016). He is also the man behind the lovely graphics created for The Actors Studio and The Kuala Lumpur
Performing Arts Centre (klpac).

Kay Wong completes the exciting line up for the concert. One of the top 40 contestants for “Astro Star Quest”, Kay normally plays the trumpet with the klpac Orchestra, klpac Symphonic Band, Selangor Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonic Winds of Malaysia. But many may not know that she in fact minored in vocal performance when she was pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in Music at the Middlesex
University in London. She recently performed with her trumpet ensemble T.T Ensemble in Taiwan.

Magical Musicals will hit klpac on April 7 and will run until April 9.

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …
