Drunk before dawn For free
Well, it is quite boring this few weeks. I have no money and all the thing I do is only study. It was very boring when your laptop’s DVD-ROM damaged. Nothing to do with it. I feel so boring. My life was not interesting as the last semester. Maybe because the new year is coming so this is the end of the year. So I just hoping that the next year will be better for me.
Until one night, around 11 pm, Sunday, I received a message from my friend inviting me to watch a musical drama entitled Drunk Before Dawn. I don’t know how but he manages to sponsor me a free ticket for the show. At first I was just yes or no, no big deal. He even ask me to ask my other friends whether they want to go to the drama or not.
Well, when I ask some of my Malay friends, they did not show any interesting response about that show. So I think the show was only another boring fund raising show held by a secondary school or something. But when I asked one of my Chinese friends that originally come from KL, he was surprise that I have free tickets to go the show cause the show was quite popular in KL last year. I was a little happy that time cause now I know I really get something interesting to do.
In the beginning there were around 20 sponsored tickets but at last, only 5 were given to me on Monday. I was a little sad about it. But still, I can bring 4 of my friends to go the show. So who to choose? It was a very hard thing to do because in the end, everyone were interested on going to the show. Now everyone feel like going. But only 4 will have a great opportunity to go there for free.
After all the trouble of choosing only 4 of my friends when there are 11 of them that wanted to go, I manage to bring 4 most qualified persons. But I think my choosing is not that good. Maybe I was wrong choosing one or two of them. But I don’t care. It was very hard for me also to get the ticket. Have to go to KK at night searching for it, and have to be blame for only getting 5 tickets, not 20 as I say to them earlier.
I don’t care about it. What I care is I one to watch a live musical drama. It was my first time. I have watched a theater before entitled Puteri Gunung Ledang in KL but a musical drama, I never watched this kind of genre. So I hope this how will give me a good first impression.
So, 21 December 2006, I went to the venue with my 4 friends, and sit in that auditorium for 2 ½ hour watching a very interesting show. The show was organized by SIB church KL and it is basically about how Christian established in Sarawak during 1930’s. It was based on a true story and the story was simple and plain. But what is interesting about the show is about the song, the music and the way the performed on the stage.
I enjoyed my 2 ½ hours show. I was mesmerize through out the show. I love their voice very much. Very live. Very beautiful. I did not believe that they are really singing and acting live on the stage. After the show, I feel satisfy. Maybe if I pay RM30 for that ticket I won’t be that satisfied but because it was free….. of course I’m satisfied with it.
Anyway, even though sometimes I feel that my life is boring, but suddenly there will be something that will happen to me. Something that I never ever planned to do. This is what me and Kimy ( my old timer best friends) philosophy said : ‘Unplanned hing usually happen than the plan one and it is usually more interesting rather than planning to do something interesting and it wasn’t that interesting as planned.’
P/s: One of my girlfriend was very afraid to go the show because he scared that the show will turn her into Christian. It was the most funny reason I ever heard.
p/s: The drama really is about Christianity but I never understand what they wanted to say because I was enjoying the music and the way the actor act on the stage and I accidentally ignoring about the contents of the show.
p/s: In the auditorium, I think only me and 2 of my friends were muslims and the other were Christian. So why we are there? Because of the free pass we get obviously. I will never reject a free things like this.
p/s: I know already that the show is about Christianity but my friends already told me that the story was actually more on History of Borneo. The only things is it was organized by the SIB church and the song was all like a church song. But play in a different way.
p/s: I’m happy in the end. And enjoyed myself. Thanks to my best friends Lee that get me the free pass. Thanks also to my friends that accompany me to the show. Izwan, Emee ( she does not turn to Christian in the end), Connie ( my hometowner) and Yong guang ( the one who brief me about the show and what is the show all about. And the one that tells me that this show was popular in KL last year).
The next things to do is… to find a free pass for a rock concert that held in an auditorium like this. Haha. In the future….
