Coldplay Concert Pictures @ Rogers Arena

I went to the sold out Coldplay concert on Friday night at Rogers Arena. I had amazing seats - row 4 on the floor. I don't think I've ever been that close to the stage. The bass blasting out of the speakers vibrated my whole body. I missed most of the opening act - Metronomy (a little too weird for my taste). Coldplay came on at 9 and wow, what a concert! They sang all their classics including The Scientist, Yellow, Viva la Vida, Clocks and In My Place, as well as songs from their newest album. The confetti canons were working on overdrive too - by the end of the concert, the floor was littered with piles and piles of it. I felt kind of bad for the staff that had to clean it up, only to have to do it again after Saturday's concert! Everyone was handed a wristband when they entered the arena and they all lit up during select songs. It was a very cool effect! A great concert! Here are some pictures and videos:

DisneyNature's Chimpanzee - Movie Review

I was lucky enough to be invited to the advanced screening last week of DisneyNature's newest film, Chimpanzee. Chimpanzee follows the life of Oscar, a young chimp, and his life with his large family living in the African rain forests. The movie had amazing and beautiful footage, often capturing scenes that will make your jaw drop. Chimpanzee offers viewers a glimpse of what life is like for chimpanzees in the wild, the struggles to find food, as well as shows how intelligent chimpanzees are, using makeshift tools. The film is narrated by Tim Allen, and weaves a story of Oscar and his family and a rival group of chimpanzees, led by Scar (The Lion King much?), who is after the nut groves. Like previous films by DisneyNature, I thought Chimpanzee was a fun, family friendly movie. It was certainly educational - I learned a few things about chimps I never knew. The footage itself is something to be admired, and besides, who doesn't like a fun romp through the African jungles? 

A portion of ticket sales during the opening week of Chimpanzee will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute to protect chimpanzees and their habitat Chimpanzee is out everywhere in theatres today, April 20th.

Buy Eyeglasses Online: Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and more eyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo's slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.

Most eyeglasses wearers have purchased eyeglasses at traditional eyeglass stores. Nevertheless, due to the limited styles and unaffordable prices, consumers have had to regard eyeglasses as a medical tool used to correct vision instead of a fashion accessory. But now, with the emergence of online eyeglass shopping, we can get fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices. Among the many online eyeglass stores, Firmoo, which combines fashion and economy, is undoubtedly the most outstanding one.

As we all know, we usually have to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Yet, you can get the same pair of glasses from online eyeglass stores at a fraction of the price. For this reason, buying glasses online is, so to speak, quite an economical way to get eyeglasses. Among the numerous online optical stores, Firmoo is the most economic one. Customers can usually get their beloved glasses at a price that is up to 90% lower than that in brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Furthermore, new customers can even get their first pair for FREE there. Some people may doubt the quality, safety, durability, etc. of eyeglasses purchased online, but there is no need to worry when purchasing from Firmoo. Firstly, all glasses provided by Firmoo are carefully manufactured by skilled workers and are strictly inspected by professional opticians before shipment, thus ensuring the quality and safety of glasses; secondly, Firmoo has developed a try-on tool for customers to try their beloved eyeglasses on so as to see how they look on them; thirdly, Firmoo has a customer service team that has always been committed to offering their valued customers the best service; lastly, all glasses available at Firmoo are provided by their affiliated factory, which is why they can offer eyeglasses at such a low price.

"We have dozens of affiliated eyeglasses factories which enable us to provide our customers with the most affordable eyeglasses around because there are no middlemen in between. Meanwhile, we have devoted ourselves to providing our valued customers with fashionable and aesthetic eyeglasses," said Patrick Li, Firmoo's CEO.

Compared with purchasing eyeglasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores, purchasing eyeglasses online is not only more economical but also enables customers to select from more fashion elements. This is due to Firmoo meticulously picking several hundred classic styles from thousands of eyeglass models.

Firmoo CEO Patrick Li also added, "Our team has selected hundreds of classical and fashionable styles in order to save time for our customers when they are picking eyeglasses."

So what do online eyeglass stores bring to us? We believe the answer is fashion and frugality.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst #CCMorningBurst

A few weeks ago, I received a Klout Perk in the mail - three full sized bottles of Clean & Clear Morning Burst body wash. They are body washes that are infused with bursting beads and come in different fruit scents: Wildberry & Guava, Pomegranate & Orange and Mango & Papaya. I've had the opportunity to try them out and they smell as amazing as they sound! The beads that are suspended in the body wash are a lot of fun too - you can squish them and they go KAPOW! Just kidding! The body washes come in a hefty 473ml bottle. I have to stop myself from squeezing too much out because it just smells so yummy!

Check out Clean & Clear website for more information on the Morning Burst body washes.

Cats The Musical

I went to the opening night of Cats, one of the longest running musicals on Broadway. I've always wanted to watch Cats ever since I was in elementary school. My grade 7 teacher really enjoyed musicals and got our class to sing them during music class - one of them was the song Memory from Cats. My mum even gave me the Cats CD as a birthday present. So it's been 12 years since then and I was excited to hear Cats was coming to Vancouver!

Cats is based on poems by T.S. Eliot and introduces many different cat characters throughout the musical. Grizabella, the cat that sings Memory, was one of my favorites - it was very sad to see all the cats shun her! Andrew Lloyd Webber must really like Elvis, because Rum Tum Tugger (a rock-and-roll type tomcat) makes me think of the Pharaoh from Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. The costumes and makeup were amazing - the hair was fascinating, with the tufts of fur that forms ears. I just stared throughout the show. Cats is a very fun musical to watch. There are great songs that just makes you want to sing along to!

Cats will be playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre until April 15, 2012 - get your tickets now!
