16th Dec 2006
What a day it was..the day prior…I was really having a terrible…diahorrea and a super messed up time at work…which really strengthen my resolve to leave the shitty place altogether…if there’s a birthday wish I wanna make..and have it come true..that would for me to be able to leave the sHitty Place altogether….
Anyway, back to the concert…We arrived at the esplande at around 6.40pm…and there was this xmas performance going on..there was this nice gentleman who came along and ask if I wanted to dedicate a song that they will be performing to my gf…I said why not…since Ginger was in the ladies and she didn’t know!
Why we were at the esplande? For Corrinne May’s concert of course…it was my xmas day gift from Ginger..she knows how much we love Corrinne…the hours we sat in the little blue jazz listening to Corrinne May…And muacks to her for buying me the Xmas Album, the gift…
Ginger was so nicely dressed! Black top, blue jeans with a shawl from Sapa…and likewise I was in blue jean, black top…haha
The concert sequence went something like this….
I’ve just returned from the concert, “Christmas with Corrinne May”, held at the Esplanade. As to be expected, it was a spectacular evening filled with heartwarming songs presented in a soulful, meaningful manner.
Each song was rendered in the same lush manner by Corrinne May, who was dressed in a dark blue evening gown, backed up by an incredible band and string orchestra that was totally in sync with her piano playing. There were few hiccups, no major boo-boos except for a minor audio issue that was laughed away casually. The only complaint I have is that, at times, her voice was drowned out by the loud background music, particularly the drums and guitars.
1. Silent Night
2. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
3. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
4.Be Thou My Vision
5.Away in a Manger

And that was it. There was an autograph session at the end of the show, but I didn’t stay for it and my camera battery was flat…Ginger should have allowed me to bring my 20D instead!
