Meandering

A couple of weeks ago we had to go get our laptop fixed, Singapore phone plan, and get some photos off our computer hard drive. We found this mall down by city hall that is entirely dedicated to electronics. If we had time Lyndon would have spent a long time there. Electronics paradise. But ya know with kids it's another story. We had a few hours to hang around while our laptop screen was getting fixed. We were going to go pick some stuff up at the grocery store, but on the way we saw some pretty neat stuff and just decided to forget the grocery store and explore this area.

We went to see a dance opera (basically a ballet) at the Esplanade Theatre downtown this past weekend for our date night. It's called Silk Road based off the Dunhaung Frescoes in the Gansu province of China. It was phenomenal. That is why I am sharing it. Both of us were so moved by the production, especially by the music and the costumes.  The music was majestic and touching. It forced you to become emotionally involved in the story, applauding the character's triumphs and crying in their pain. The story line was both personal and epic. The main characters were a father and daughter. It was so sweet to see their love and sacrifice for each other. Story lines are so often about two lovers, it was refres…
