Michael Firestone & I - MJ Live Tribute In Las Vegas

The following night after the heavy downpour, it was a time for another excitement, this time it was not as "threatening" as the previous night but a time for a "thunderous" one... an event I was looking forward to since the day I arrived in Las Vegas!

The only SHOW I wanted to go and watch is none other than a tribute to Michael Jackson and he is none other than Michael Firestone!  Upon checking into the resort, we quickly booked tickets to the MJ Live in Rio Hotel...
Getting ready for the show... 
The good old "Charlie's Angels" and their "Bosley?"  LOL....
The Crown Theatre Nightclub where the show begins at 8.30pm..
 We were there very early around 7pm...  (kiasu-ness)
... first come first serve seats.... 
One ticket cost around $37usd.
Soon we were led into the nightclub....
and get the Best Seats ever.. 
(after giving some $ tips!)
Getting the feel of the surrounding...
Take some pictures ....
before the show began... 
Trying out the camera la ... 
the curtains raised up and Michael Firestone 
appeared... and sang... "Man In The Mirror"
For a moment, I really thought it was the real Michael Jackson..
even his voice sounded the same as the original MJ...
Thriller... Dangerous... Billie Jean... Beat It...
all the popular songs from Michael Jackson... ..
Hearing these songs made me miss Michael Jackson in a way...
Felt sad that he had passed on just like that...  
The One hour performance by Michael Firestone 
did not put MJ to shame....
It was really worth watching the "MJ Live"
and I wouldn't mind watching it over and over again...
Michael & I
After the performance, fans of MJ (or should I say Michael Firestone)
queued up to take a picture with him....
And that is how I have this picture...
Though it is not the real Michael Jackson
I will treasure this one here always!


  1. He bears a close resemblance to MJ. Guess he must have gone through multiple plastic surgery.

  2. I heard he has to get "approval" from MJ's family before he can perform like MJ...

  3. wow, that's interesting and I missed MJ too..

  4. gigi: yeah!!

    wenn: more you want to go! :)

  5. He does look like Michael Jackson. the magic of plastic surgery I suppose.

  6. It must be great such a Michael Jackson show.


  7. I've seen his show 3 times; in Albuquerque, NM, Laughlin, NV and Santa Fe, NM. He's great! Makes me miss Michael more every time but he does MJ proud. He met and spoke to MJ at length one time in Las Vegas. He's a true Michael fan. Made me appreciate him and his act even more.

  8. nice! I love those shows they have overseas. Expensive but so very well done, so very nice, it is worth every cent!

  9. It must have been a great show. He really looks like MJ.

  10. agnes: i read his interview, he said it is all due to makeup..

    filip: indeed it was.. i would love to see it again if i could..

    corlista: that is cool!! 3 times!

    stp: I only watch those that I like.. :) worth ever cent..'

  13. mecoy: he is real...but his name is Michael Firestone..hahaha..

    kathy: me or him? :)

    ling: yeah, he looks very alike..

  14. Looks like you really had a great time. Feels good to see MJ again (Michael F). Thanks for the visit!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
