❤ Love of my life ❤

I am sure most of you have read Our Story in this blog where I wrote about my love story with AS. I have always said that I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life.

The day that he entered my world changed me in such a positive way. Life is beautiful now. I see the importance in every action that I take. Each moment is cherished.

We have been through the good and the bad times in life together and I have to admit he has been a pillar of strength in my life.

He knows me so well and makes sure I am happy. He makes me smile and laugh and I love those moments.

This morning I woke up as normal. AS and Chhori were still be in bed and I started getting ready to go to work. When I went to the kitchen to make breakfast, this was on our kitchen bench top, it just melted my heart.

I think it is the small moments like this that make life truly amazing.

Hakuna Matata: Lion King, the musical

I have to admit I am not a big fan of musicals and neither is my husband. When I start to think about musicals, my mind drifts away but The Lion King musical was a different story.

I am sure most of you have heard how amazing The Lion King, the musical is.  The show tells the tale of Disney’s “The Lion King” through acrobatics, dance, music and puppetry. Based on the 1994 animated film, the musical follows the adventures of Simba, a lion cub, as he struggles to accept the responsibility of adulthood and his destined role of King.

The musical debuted July 8, 1997, in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Orpheum Theatre, and was an instant success before premiering on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theater on October 15, 1997 in previews with the official opening on November 13, 1997. It was Broadway’s fourth longest-running show in history and the highest grossing Broadway production of all time, having grossed more than $1 billion.

Since its success, the musical has been produced in many countries and everyone who has watched it has raved about it. It had come to Sydney several times before, but unfortunately, we had missed the opportunity to go and watch it.

In order to quench our curiosity, hubby and I decided to go and watch the musical at Capitol Theatre, Sydney this time. The tickets were not cheap but from what I had heard it was worth every penny.

We did some research beforehand and bought an aisle seat and the one next to it and it was a great idea. A few times during the show people dressed as elephants, giraffes, birds and other animals walk/danced past us and it is a joy to see them up close.

I have to admit, The Lion King is the ultimate live theatre experience, provoking the full range, an abundance of spine tingles, goose bumps, laughter and tears. It has dazzling visual delight, with hundreds of masks, puppets, state-of-the-art lighting and more than 700 costumes creating the enchanting backdrop of the Serengeti Plains.

It was amazing to enjoy songs like ‘Circle Of Life’, ‘Hakuna Matata’, ‘Endless Night’ and many more which capture both the pain and joy of the characters. When we finished the show, I was still in awe of the colourful characters, heart-warming story and catchy songs.

Showing great respect to the source and setting, The Lion King has created a world of rituals, traditions and social hierarchy in which the animals and the land are connected as one.

If you every get the opportunity, do not forget to grab the ticket be part of the history of amazing musical. Like me, you may still be humming ‘Hakuna Matata’ even after many days :).

 “Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase”
