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:
Galinda, Glinda

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.

making waves :)

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)
