Hello everyone, how you doin?
Sorry for the uber late post and update. I have sent the gifts to all the Christmas giveaway winners so if anyone of you have receive them, let me know in the comment box below. I hope you guys enjoy the gifts!
Speaking of gifts, how’s your Valentine’s day this year? For me, this year’s Valentine was a semi special. Why? because at one point BB had already prepare a special night out at this nice Southern place but we were stuck in a horrific traffic so we had to cancel it. And what sucks is that it was on a Sunday afternoon! We were swearing like crazy in the car consider how packed up the highway that day!
But of course there was a sweet ending to that! BB gave me the best Valentine’s gift ever. Nope, not a diamond, not a car, but something that we would cherish for the rest of our lives.
Those were lovely but not those. LOL.
A night with Michael Bolton.
Yeap, there ya go! Michael Bolton’s concert on February 19th 2017.
For those of you who do not know me that well, I am gonna spill a secret. I have been a fan of Bolton since I was in elementary school. Yea yea, I am an old school persona and I still think he’s hot even at the ripe age of 64! Ok, don’t tell BB that LOL but seriously he still has the voice, the charm, and the… (ok enough :P). And that Sunday night concert prove it.

BB lookin dashin handsome (as always!) 😉
The same dress I wore to Il Trovatore in Oct 2015 LOL
Bolton and his back vocalist, Sam Fly (or so I have heard :P)
Ay, even at 64 he is still lookin hot! 😀
So Bolton sang most of his 80s and 90s hits including How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, When A Man Loves A Woman, Steel Bars, Said I Loved You But I Lied, How Can We Be Lovers, Sittin On A Dock OF The Bay, as well as his songs from his latest CD “Songs of Cinema”. BB and I really enjoyed the concert although I must say I was sorta bummed because he did not sing Go The Distance because I have been waiting for him to actually perform it. Another bummer was that when he performed When A Man Loves A Woman. Bolton always surprised his fans during his concert but this time around he only came from one side of the guest entrance (not from the middle part of the seating section) so I could not take a much closer picture with my camera. Unlike Singapore’s concert in 2009 which I also attended, he basically just stayed in one side then went back to the stage. This left most of the viewers on the other side (including me) blocked from seeing or taking pictures of him. I was also surprised that he did not sing songs from his 2009 album “One World One Love” but I guess it was understandable consider he needed to prioritize his latest album first.
Despite those glitches, BB and I really enjoyed our night out together and I eventually made him like Bolton now. LOL. The day did not start smooth but the evening concert really paid off. Oh and btw, don’t expect too many pictures or videos from the concert because I am not the type of person who would glue to her cell or camera from beginning till the end. When I go to a concert or Broadway play or Opera, I want to enjoy it as much as I can. Bolton did not mind the audience taking videos or photos tho but to me I’d rather take couple of mementos and hear him sings because hey, the show is not free! 😉
Yours Truly 🙂
P.S.: incase you are wondering, we only went to a small Bar and Grill to eat before the show. Nothing fancy really just a pierogies and Jamaican pork sandwiches with fries.
