Wicked the Musical
I was able to watch a making of the wicked the musicale while I was watching the in-flight entertainment of Cathay Pacific. And boy, was I impressed. The music was really nice and the production seemed so special. Honestly, I do not know the summary of Wizard of Oz. All I know is that it's a classic and it's a well-loved tale which Americans really love and treasure. (There was even this Ruby slippers (shoes actually) that Judy Garland wore which is preserved and presented to Oprah one time - and the curator wouldn't let Oprah touch without gloves! And I digress. Haha)
I tried searching for the songs but of course, since it was new then, there wasn't any available. I rekindled my interest today and found the songs! My favorite is "For Good". This is the song that Glinda, the good witch and Elphaba, the misunderstood witch who became the wicked witch later on. I like the duets! I also like the song "Popular".
This is Wicked's summary: And the characters of the musical:
The lyrics for "For Good": (Elphaba) I'm limited Just look at me - I'm limited And just look at you You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda So now it's up to you For both of us - now it's up to you...
(Glinda) I've heard it said That people come into our lives for a reason Bringing something we must learn And we are led To those who help us most to grow If we let them And we help them in return Well, I don't know if I believe that's true But I know I'm who I am today Because I knew you
Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun Like a stream that meets a boulder Halfway through the wood Who can say if I've been changed for the better? But because I knew you I have been changed for good
(Elphaba) It well may be That we will never meet again In this lifetime So let me say before we part So much of me Is made of what I learned from you You'll be with me Like a handprint on my heart And now whatever way our stories end I know you have re-written mine By being my friend...
Like a ship blown from its mooring By a wind off the sea Like a seed dropped by a skybird In a distant wood Who can say if I've been changed for the better? But because I knew you
(Glinda) Because I knew you
(Both) I have been changed for good
(Elphaba) And just to clear the air I ask forgiveness For the thing I've done you blame me for
(Glinda) But then, I guess we know There's blame to share
(Both) And none of it seems to matter anymore
(Glinda) Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun Like a stream that meets a boulder Halfway through the wood
(Elphaba) Like a ship blown from its mooring By a wind off the sea Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood
(Both) Who can say if I've been Changed for the better? I do believe I have been Changed for the better
(Glinda) And because I knew you...
(Elphaba) Because I knew you...
(Both) Because I knew you... I have been changed for good.

Pray as you go...
I managed to find this site because a member from the catholic groups i was in posted this. i want to share this site to everyone who thinks they don't have time for prayer anymore. :) this is a prayer as you go literally!
It was Papa's 49th day last Saturday. That meant the end of mourning - we can now cut our hair, wear clothes other than white color (although personally i'll be avoiding red until 100 days). And the first thing I did? Read below:
While everybody is getting their hair rebonded these days, i've jumped over the other side of the bandwagon and did the opposite... got myself a digital perm and lovin' it! :)
It takes getting used to... after all, I think my straight hair and I have been together for less than thirty years already. :)
some comments so far... ... you're so channeling carrie from sex and the city (BEST COMPLIMENT EVER) & whoa... effect ba ito ng sex and the city? ... you look so pretty (yey! the perm did make me feel pretty) ... so korean! (anohaseyo ^.^) ... you look mature! ... magkaka-papa ka na!!! (sana! hahaha)
