Peter Pan The Musical

I have to admit when I first heard people mentioning that Peter Pan was coming to town, I wondered what the fuss was about for a band from Indonesia. It was only later I realised my mistake and everyone was talking about Peter Pan The Musical.

The Gala Premiere of Peter Pan The Musical took place at the newly refurbished Amphitheatre in Sunway Lagoon on the 26th November 2010. The musical production is a first collaboration between local and international talents.

The show was directed by Chris Colby, who have been involved in musical productions such as Aladdin, Cinderella, Beauty & the Beast, Oliver and Annie, he leads a 16 member cast line-up who hails from Europe, South America, the Philippines, Indonesia and of course not forgetting, Malaysia.

A bunch of us gathered up and got there before 8pm as that’s the time the show was supposed to start. The place was already packed and the best seats in the house (middlerow) were practically full. It took a while for the show to start as Mr Aaron Soo, CEO of Sunway Lagoon gave a speech followed by Mr Chris Colby & David Kort, Producers of the show.

If you’ve not already heard by now, YTL is finally launching their 4G services. Yes you heard that right !! On the 19th of November there will be an official launch and your’s truly has been invited. Before the unveiling of their services and price plan to the public there was a soft launch on the 3rd of November and I for one was really excited to see the solution provided by YTL.

What makes YTL 4G service a little different from their competitors is that they are boasting voice services that will be already integrated with the mobile internet. Instead of having to subscribe to a voice plan, a mobile Internet plan and a mobile broadband plan, you can get everything in one simple plan with Yes.

Yes claims to have 3 to 5 times faster speed than 3G and when a demo was performed the speeds was indeed impressive. We’ll just have to wait and see how consistent the speeds are when there’s few thousand people using the service.

Apart from that Yes promises to charge for the data that you use, just like electricity. With 65% coverage around Malaysia upon launching you can be certain that most major cities are already covered, even when you’re travelling at 120km/h along the North-South Highway !!

 

Yes !!!

Yes !!!

What really caught my interest is that you don’t need to have SIM-card to use Yes. It connects via your Yes-ID allowing you to login via multiple devices or borrow a friends phone when your’s is out of battery !! Contacts etc are now stored on the cloud making you truly portable. There’s even news of an Android device in the pipeline !!
