harry potter in concert

.

Heyyy ❤️ I was reading through my blog last night and I realised that I have talked about nothing but headspace for the past couple of months! I swear I have things going on in my life 😛

.

Soo.. Last weekend I went to the Harry Potter in Concert at the Plenary Hall, KLCC. It’s on the first film — Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Some call it the “sorcerer’s stone”, I just go with whatever’s written there.

.

Basically I ended up with 5 tickets to the concert (long story) so I gave 2 of the Sunday tickets to my sister and brother-in-law. I went to the concert on Saturday with 2 of my eldest nieces. We had the privilege to get the gold tickets and we seriously thought that that was awesome enough!

I made the mistake of not checking where the venue is beforehand and we went to the Petronas Philharmonic Hall instead. 😐 Thank goodness it was around 6.30ish p.m. when I was told that the concert was at the Plenary Hall. The show wouldn’t be starting until 8 p.m. so we decided to walk to the Plenary Hall via the underground tunnel. Thenn… I read a notification that the tunnel would be closed after 10.30 p.m.. What a bummer!

.

So we decided to take the tickets and take some pictures first before I leave my nieces to move the car from KLCC to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Mind you, I was doing all the walking and driving in a pair of 4-inches heels. I was lucky my feet didn’t fail on me throughout the night. I did, however, decided to go barefoot on our way back to the car after the concert though haha. 😅

.

The concert was great! The orchestra was magical, I promise. Until today, I still find myself humming to the Harry Potter soundtrack. Here’s something that you might not know about me: I used to dream of becoming a professional violinist. So watching and listening to any orchestra performance would make me all giddy inside!  I used to be an avid Potterhead too but it sort of faded out as I grow up. I haven’t watched the any Harry Potter films in a looong time, so watching it during the concert reignited my fangirl-ness.

After the concert finished, there was a surprise announcement that the organiser was going to the their own version of the sorting ceremony — it was a lucky draw. The first four draw recipients were given something from MPH. Most probably there were Harry Potter books inside.

.

Dariena (my second eldest niece) wanted to leave the event since she’s getting tired and sleepy. I told her that we should stay as to respect the event. I wanted to teach her a bit on etiquette as I thought the lucky draw is going to finished in a minute or two anyways.

.

Lo and behold, the organiser announced that they were then going to draw the seat number for the grand prize — an all expenses paid 3 days and 2 nights visit to Universal Studio Japan. And there I was thinking, “Great, we have to wait for at least another 15 minutes.” I already had my admission tickets in my hands by then, just in case. 😂

.

Then, the seat I was sitting on before the remission was announced!! I changed my seat with Natasya (eldest niece) after the break. The three of us screamed and did a little dance right after that! Hahaha. So much for teaching them about etiquette 😅

That’s the end of our night. We got so high from the turn of event that we only slept 1ish a.m. that morning. When I was walking down to the podium to take pictures with the organiser that night, something came up my mind — “What if I have used all of my luck on this lucky draw?” 😂 Choi. The organiser contacted me the day before yesterday to confirm the winning prize.

.

It was a fun night, even if it’s without the lucky draw winning, I got to spend time with my nieces. ❤️

.

p/s excuse the shitty pictures please, these are the only ones I have of the event since my phone’s battery died on me right after the concert starts. 😕
