There is a Le Miserables fever in the house!


The other night, I slept at around 1:00 AM because Rolex forced me to watch Les Miserables the movie. Starring Liam Neson, Uma Thurman, Geoffrey Rush and Claire Danes, Les Miserable the movie is an adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel. Honestly, I didn’t know that there was a movie version. All I knew is the musical which featured our very own Leah Salonga as Eponine and then later on as Fantine. Good thing the movie which was actually released in 1998 was good, that I lasted until 1:00 AM to finish it. Though it was not as complete as the book (as usual), still I give it 4 stars…=)


Tonight, we lasted for hours watching highlights of Les Miserables the musical on Youtube. Now I dream to see the musical, for real…in person! I don’t know if Lea Salonga will again take part in the cast…in the future. I told Rolex that maybe while watching the musical I will cry not because of the story but because of how magnifcent and flawless the actors’ voices are. I even told myself, what the hell I was doing when I was younger, musicals and plays were so far away that we were not even exposed to it. Instead, we watched That’s Entertainment and screamed for the Tuesday edition.

Now I am screaming my lungs out to the tune of "On My Own". I hope our neighbors’ will not think I have gone crazy.

And now Im all alone again
no where to turn no one to go to
Without a home without a friend without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
now I can make believe hes here

Sometimes I walk alone at night when everybody
else is sleeping
I think of him and then I’m happy with
the company I’m keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

On my own,
Pretending he’s beside me,
All alone, I walk with him till morning.
Without him, I feel his arms around me,
And when I lose my way, I close my eyes,
And he has found me…

In the rain,
The pavement shines like silver,
All the lights are misty in the river,
In the darkness the trees are full of starlight,
And all I see is him and me,
Forever and forever…

And I know it’s only in my mind,
That I’m talking to myself and not to him,
And although I know that he is blind,
Still I say, there’s a way for us…

I love him,
But when the night is over,
He is gone, the river’s just a river
Without him the world around me changes,
The trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers.

I love him,
But everyday I’m learning,
All my life,
I’ve only been pretending,
Without me,
His world will go on turning,
A world that’s full of happiness,
That I have never known…

I love him… I love him…
I love him… But only on my own…

Cheers!
