History was re-Tell

Puteri Gunung Ledang was one of our magnificient folk tales. The story was told from generation to another generation; the unspeakable beauty of Gusti Puteri Retno Dumilah and the charming yet cunning Hang Tuah fallen in love secretly behind the knowledge of Sultan Melacca.

Their love story are now came into life @ Istana Budaya Kuala Lumpur. Tickets were sold out 2 weeks in advanced and the extended show tickets are gone in just 3 hour! Am lucky to have the tickets last night, thanx to my gurl, Sri. RM30 tickets sitting on the upper circle ... luckly my view wasnt block much. Picture below is the view from my seat.

It all started in Majapahit when Mahmod of Melacca came over to Majapahit under the government business. As soon as Gusti Puteri Retno Dumilah look upon Hang Tuah's she'd knew that she had fallen in love with the Laksamana of Melacca. They met secretly in Majapahit. Everything was beautiful till the day when Demak, suddenly attacked Majapahit terratory and threaten to attack Adipati's Palace. Adipati the ruler of Majapahit asked for help from his brothers of Melacca. Sultan Mahmod agreed to help, but with a price - if Demak stop threatening Adipati, Mahmod of Melacca shall have Putri Gusti as his Mistress, and so Adipati agreed... without Putri Gusti knowledge. Hang Tuah was sent by Sultan Melacca to give his words to Demak.
After a while, Putri Gusti cant wait no longer and so she decided to sailed to Melacca all by herself, leaving
behind her name, fame and family. And so she climb up the Gunung Ledang to wait for Hang Tuah to arrived. At the same time, Adapati was pissed off when his sister, Putri Gusti had left her chamber and sailed to Melacca. A promised must be fulfilled!!! Adipati told Mahmod of Melacca that his sister was hiding in Gunung Ledang and so the Sultan ordered Hang Tuah and his men to go to Gunung Ledang and return with Putri Gusti. And so the sad, romantic live story begins ....
"Setapak melangkah meninggalkanmu, dua langkah kasihku akan setia kepadamu"

soon after its finished, I bought PGLtM Music CD for RM18, it has only 5 tracks on it. I am quite dissapointed because at first I thought it has the whole soundtrack in it. After listening to it in my car, it is worth RM18! Beautiful words and its music has been arranged gracefully .... it captured my ears.

As an add-ons, last night I saw Afdlin Shauki, Siti Nurhaliza, Roslan Aziz, Zahim Albakri and a few more .....

PGLtM was marvelous. The music, dance choreographer, settings, and not forgotten the actor/actress in it .. everything was great!!!

...something to be

I like matchbox20, Rob Thomas ... though he's going solo these days ( resembling Robbie Williams .. R and R .. huh, what a coincedence!!) This tune of his has kept me listening forever. In the car, at the office and in my walkman W900i phone. Owh, flash news -> I'd bought SE W900i few weeks ago ... a record for me cause I still havent put a single scratch on the screen. I need no iPOD now!! hehehehe ......

...something to be was release last year, 2005. This is a back-dated news. hehhe, it took me quite sometimes to think and grab this record. It cost me RM45.90 for this. Overall, worth for my money. No complains ... I like him but lurve Robbie more. Heehehehehe ...

Sorry - madonna

Lo siento
Ik ben droevig
Sono spiacente

I've heard it all before

I don't wanna hear
I don't wanna know
Please don't say you're sorry
I heard it all before
And I can take care of myself
I don't wanna hear
I don't wanna know
Please don't say "forgive me"
I've seen it all before
And I can't take it anymore

You're not half the man you think you are
Save your words because you've gone too far
I listened to your lies and all your stories [I listened to your stories]
You're not half the man you'd like to be

Don't explain yourself 'cause talk is cheap
There's more important things than hearing you speak
You stayed because I made it so convenient [I made it so convenient]
Don't explain yourself, you'll never see

Gomen nasai
Mujhe maph kardo
Forgive me

This tune keep on playing in my head and I am sooo into it. ... while EGO keep on fighting in silence

Azman and Diyana Yang

"Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence." - H.L.Mencken
She stood there gorgeously in her maroon-gold songket, with her hair up in a sanggul and holding those lovely flowers in her hand waiting for her dear prince charming. The moment she'd been waiting is finally here. The day where two souls will be unite for the rest of their life.

Congratulations to Azman and Diyana Yang ... and may God bless both of you with His neverending lurves.
