Weekend Snapshot: Disney on ice

Disney on ice comes to Bangkok once a year. The fact that I don't like to watch it alone always made me unable to see it for more than a decade. Finally this year I found someone who wants to witness it as much as I do. Off we went to Impact Arena where it was shown last week. I took these shots from my seat:

Smoke on ice...

The plot/smoke thickens:

My friend turned to me smiling when the nickname a college sweetheart baptized me with boomed out of the speakers-Anastasia. "I have always been game for your version of charm, Ivan, haven't I?" I blew a thought while snapping into the magic.

An enchanting refrain engulfed the entire arena - "believe in your dreams... someday my prince will come..." It faded before I started going sentimental. This princess has obviously found her prince:

My prince could still be in some pond leaping and croaking. I'm not sure if I could kiss a frog with bulging eyes and serpent-green skin in real life though. But I was 100% happy to be transported into a magical world for an hour.

Oh yes, it would be fun to watch shows like this with a friend. The last time I watched Disney on Ice was years ago when my daughter was still in preparatory school.

What a fun series of photographs and great text to go with it. I have a lot of ornamental frogs in my garden. I joke that I've tried kissing them but they don't turn into a prince. I'd never try that with a living leaping eye bulging frog.

julie, that's right. i would gladly kiss the ugliest of frogs if i knew a prince will come off it after the kissing lol!

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
