Went to Genting Highland on the Christmas eve to attend a dinner event. It was sort of a dinner-cum-evening musical where a number of Christmas songs were performed by the carolling group, Genting international live band and singers, and last but not least the star of the day itself - Teresa Carpio.
A fusion of east & west cuisine were served. Among others are:
Foie gras mousse, asparagus and not-sure-what-are-the-others
Dried scallop with ginseng and chicken essence soup
Pacific cod with assorted wild mushrooms and garlic, olive oil and pasta
Roasted turkey with baby potatoes
Mum and I had an enjoyable evening as the songs performed by Teresa Carpio ranging from English to Chinese, classic Christmas tunes, Abba Mamma Mia stuffs, and some 60s & 70s songs.
Her vocal range is superb and she can sing well in various languages.
How come i have never heard of her? All these while i only knew of Lea Salonga, but this is a real star who can sing and dance well, plus she has a good sense of humor!
At the end of the day, we even shook hand with her when she came down the stage and bid farewell while performing the song "When Will I See You Again"....
Well, I hope to see her again, perhaps next year?
