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..

    corlista: that is cool!! 3 times!

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

    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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
