PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!!!

August 28, 2013
Been super busy with school and TJM lately I can hardly breathe, so when I found out Gushcloud got me tickets for Phantom Of The Opera(POTO), I REALLY DIED OF HAPPINESS!!! 
Had only watched the movie when I was younger and never had the chance to watch the musical.
EXCITED ME ON THE WAY TO MBS!!!
The world’s most successful and popular musical, and the longest-running show on Broadway, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, comes to Singapore for a strictly limited season in July 2013. 
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal hit celebrated its 27th anniversary on the West End stage last year, and continues to play to full houses nightly in London, New York and around the world. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has been seen by over 130 million people worldwide, has been performed in more than 27 countries, has won over 50 major theatre awards, and has grossed more than US$5.6 billion. 
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a heart-wrenching story of the mysterious, hideously disfigured Phantom who lives beneath the Paris Opera House, and his obsession with the young singer Christine. Disguised as the ‘Angel of Music’ he devotes himself to creating a new opera star, and winning her love from his rival Raoul, while exercising a reign of terror over the Opera House. 

POTO IS LIKE THE….CHANEL OF MUSICALS!!!
Got stall seats some more! Thank you Sheena and GushCloud <3
My plus one was Cailing whom I haven’t met in ages! Miss you dearly!
No photography allowed during the musical so this was the only photo I could get before the show started!
Verdict of POTO : 
I LOVE IT!!!!! I couldn’t stop telling CL “omg so nice so nice so nice” throughout the whole show. The songs, the act, the dance(esp the ballet moves) moves, setting, backdrop, costumes and lightings were I M P R E S S I V E! I don’t think I’m gonna like any other musical more than POTO already! And the best part of the musical was that it felt so engaging and tragic I actually felt like tearing at some point? Everything from the start to the end was perfect!!! 
One of my favorite scenes!
Pity it’s gonna end on 1 Sept cos it means most of you probably can’t catch it after seeing this blog post! :/
Here’s a POTO trailer for those who are interested!
Thank you bb for coming with me today!

I feel like I’ve cheated a bit today cos I didn’t do any work at all. I’m swamped with school assignments and TJM stuff I really feel like the only time I get to rest is when I sleep (6-8 hours a day). 
Anyhoos, guess who got a new phone!!! YAY I finally got rid of my cracked Iphone and bought my Samsung S4! Still trying to figure out how to use the phone. Please tell me the good apps to download on my askfm here!!! Spanksssssss~~
Ending with a Park Sora inspired make up I did!

SIS’ GRAD X PEPPYTHREAD!

August 24, 2013
Congrats to my sister for graduating from uni!! (:
Squeezed out some time from my lecture to take some pictures at her graduation! Didn’t really dress up for the grad cos I didn’t wanna look like some siao ding dong in class. 
My family <3
I’ve got a very handsome dad and a pretty mum (:
After that we headed to Jones the grocer @ Dempsey for high tea/brunch to celebrate my sis’ graduation!

Sis and her boyfriend, Sean!

Crochet top from http://www.peppythread.com/! Will blog about it further down.
Have y’all seen a colorful rose before? It’s super pretty!!! My sister’s friend bought it for her!

Accompanied Daniel to cut hair in town after that, and then we had the most orgasmic dinner ever………..

ABURI SALMON ROLL FROM SUSHI BAR!
I really cannot emphasize further how much I like it though I’m not a fan of salmon!!!!! 

Sirloin steak which was quite yummy too! And I don’t like steak in the first place too.
Peppy thread is a relatively new establishment, and it’s also owned by my friend Julene! I’m not saying this just because she’s my friend but I think the webstore is great for starters! They update very often and have a wide variety of apparels for you to choose from!

This crochet detailed piece that I’m wearing in this post is sponsored by PEPPY THREAD and I love it for it’s simplicity! It’s great for pairing all my fancy shorts and jackets, and the crochet details spice the top up a little! I’m contemplating in getting the black one as well.
These are some of the other stuff I like from PEPPY THREAD!
And this was a tunic sponsored by them awhile back (:

Last Bangkok Post!

August 22, 2013

Put up at my favorite, Glow Pratunam Hotel this time! I’ve tried so many different hotels in BKK and I still love this the most. The service and rooms are impeccable! Even the room service food is nice yumzzz!

Not bad for self timer huh hahah

Room service cheese fries! Quite alright but I still think the fried rice w chicken wings DA BEST!
Met Jor and Gemma who were coincidentally staying at Glow too! Headed to Audrey @ Siam Center for dinz!

Snapback and jacket coming up on TJM soon!

Tom yum prawn pizza (VERY YUMMY!!!), Tom Yum pasta, Salmon salad, Beef noodz.

Look at the jacket!!!! I LOVE IT!

Thai iced tea milk tea which was surprisingly delightful!

As you can tell from the pictures, Audrey Cafe is inspired by Audrey Hepburn especially “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” if you have watched that movie. Being an Audrey lover, I was really happy to be dining there though the food wasn’t impressive except for the pizza and cake. The decor is really parisian and sophisticated so thumbs up for that!
Audrey’s located at Siam Center and Thonglor!
Brought them to massage at Number one, @ Petchburi rd soi 15.
Good morning (day 2) from the most comfortable bed on earth!

Did shopping for myself on the second day and bought myself and Daniel a minion t-shirt!!!! I super love minions, I think they are the cutest cartoons EVER! I went nuts when I saw the t-shirt!! Hahah gonna force Daniel to wear it. 
So, as my title goes, this is gonna be my last bangkok post on my blog unless I go there for leisure purposes. I will also stop answering questions regarding BKK on my askfm. I know some people will still try their luck but don’t bother cos I’ll delete any questions regarding BKK. I had done numerous blogposts on BKK and a BKK guide so you can refer to those if you want to find out more.
I have my reasons for doing this, so please understand X.
I will still be posting pictures on instagram when I’m there though, so you can follow me on IG if you haven’t.
@sophiachong
Off to shoot for TJM now! 
Tata,
Sophia!
