Fairy Tales

J: A woman crossing the seas to chase her man? Since when?

G: That’s why it’s called a myth.

We Malaysians can achieve great things if we put our minds, hearts and souls into it. This is the irresistable proof of that fact.

I really do want to be part of a musical theatre production at least once in this lifetime. It doesn’t matter whether I’m serving coffee, dancing like a fool or belting out my bassy voice. Because I have dreamt my life to be one epic story (kinda like a musical) with the ups and the downs, victories and defeats, moments to be cherished and tragedies to be mourned over. That is why when I watch PGL, I could totally connect and relate to the drama and the emotional rollercoaster it leads us into. To be able to bring that story alive for the audience, I can imagine, is an amazing experience. A real privilege.

Because they paint portraits of hope coming out of despair. Of audacious love blossoming through heart-wrenching situations.

Fairy tales. Ever wonder why we want to believe in them so much?

Because they seemed truer than reality.


These tales say that apples were golden only to refresh the forgotten moment when we found that they were green. They make rivers run with wine only to make us remember, for one wild moment, that they run with water.

– G.K. Chesterton
