Celine Dion @ Stadium Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur – 13.4.2008

I managed to catch the Diva on stage, on a RM1000 seat – courtesy of A. Despite being on a RM1000 chair, Celine Dion was 5 inches tall. I bet those who had the RM200 ticket could only see a 5mm tall Celine Dion.

I boasted to my friend that my RM1000 would be close enough to smell Celine Dion. However, there was another section in front of us reserved for VVIP. Damn, now they know how Celine Dion smells like.

It rained heavily before the concert hence the weather was cooling. However, our seats were located on grass and everything was wet. Insects were flying around too. One dragonfly almost crashed onto my face.

The show was scheduled to start at 8pm but it only started around 9pm because we had to wait for Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong to arrive. Deputy Prime Minister and wife and also Tun Dr Mahathir and wife were present as well – in a yellow box far away from the stage.
As soon as the Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong arrive, Celine Dion appeared on stage and started singing all her best known hits. The concert lasted for around 2 hours with uncountable songs being sung. I heard that Fat Kingston (Sean Kingston), who had a concert a day before, was an hour late and sung only 3 songs.
Celine Dion was amazingly good. She sound exactly like her songs from the CDs. She ended her concert with Malaysia’s all time favourite, the bloody Titanic song.

There was a huge commotion when Tun Dr Mahathir and wife left the stadium. Many were rushing towards Tun Dr Mahathir to shake his hands and people started pushing and shoving until his body guard had to make way for him.

Spot Tun Mahathir and wife!
Lady’s Voice: TUN!!! WE LOVE YOUU!!!!!!!!!!
Crowd: wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
