Shaan in Singapore!!! Wooohooo!! 😀
After grabbing an early dinner at Komalas, Sayesha and I made our way to Kallang Stadium ahead of time, and like typical girls, spent around 20 minutes looking for the place the actual concert was to be held. (I for one, am a total direction dud…I can never find any place by myself, even if its staring me right in the face!!) When we finally got to the right place huffing and puffing (our seats were on the highest levels), we had to wait another 15 mins for the guards to start letting people in. My enthusiasm was already fading…all the waiting around was quicky sapping me of the bouncy energy I’d felt when I’d first gotten out of the cab.
My enthusiasm dropped another notch when, all settled and ready for Shaan, we were forced to endure MPM and the Rangers. The less that’s said about them, the better…they were absolutely miserable. Well, to be fair, MPM had a pretty nice voice, but singing three full songs when the whole audience is impatiently waiting for Shaan, is stretching it a bit too much. After a lot of booing from the audience, she left…and in came Shaan.
The man is a living dream. He’s cute. He writes and composes his own songs, and sings them to magical perfection. And as he showed us in the concert, he can hold his own on the dance floor. He’s got a pretty decent bod too, which he flaunted for us when he took off his jacket for a Salman Khan number. He made several references to his wife, all of which made us in the audience go ‘Awww!!’ Needless to say, I had already fallen hopelessly in love.
He sang all my favourite songs. All of them. Movies, albums, everything. I sat in that hall for 2 hours in peaceful bliss. Shaan’s got his way of making you forget about everything when he sings. All thoughts of my impending German test, which had been plaguing me all through the day, flew out the window. I even managed to ignore the blasted Rangers. For 2 hours, I listened to an amazing man croon amazing melodies…most of which I’m sure will carry me through many many years. I hummed along in some bits, but most of the time I just sat there open-jawed, at a loss for words to describe this miracle man.
Ah, what a day. It was amazing. I came back to my hostel happy as could be. I owe that happiness to three people.
To you-know-who, thank you sooo much for the ticket. I had a wonderful time and I wish you could’ve been there too.
To Sayesha, thanks for being such wonderful company. I don’t know if I’d have enjoyed the concert as much if you hadn’t been around.
And lastly, to Shaan. You made my day, man. Keep making beautiful melodies and singing them in that angelic voice, cuz you know what?
I’ll always be there to listen to them. 🙂
