Today, we digress from paleo and talk gaga!

I read online that the 'Born This Way Ball Tour' (TBTWBT) is good, but how good is good? When tickets to her 2 days concert in Singapore sold out in mere hours of release, it was a sign of goodness and I was secretly kicking myself inside. Hence, when Lady Gaga decided to add a 3rd show, we, of course went for it.
Where do I even begin... First and most importantly, Lady Gaga can sing Live and really well! Her voice was crystal-clear, she hit crazy notes and when she spoke to the audience, her voice was so enchanting, inspite of being in between heavy pants from those intense dance moves.

And speaking of dancing, her backup dancers were super hawt! Rock hard abs, oiled-up and shiny, seductive and in spandex most of the time. Ok, I know they are all gay, but I'm very hum sup one and always ready for a visual feast! Did I mention, they point their freaking toes all the time. Totally put me to shame.

What is Lady Gaga without her outrageous costumes. In her first song, she came out in this costume, which I guess was inspired by the Alien franchise (maybe it is, I'm not too sure). The rest of her costume changes did not disappoint, I mean, she is Gaga after all, 50% of the controversy that surrounds her hails from her outfits. Anyways, they are an eccentric mix of futuristic, meets avant garde, meets haute coutour. Which is not surprising, since she worked with an impressive line of designers, such as Giorgio Armani and Christian Dada for TBTWBT. My favourite is the one she wore for Bad Romance, with laser cuts, designed by Void of Course. I have no idea about this designer since I am not really an avid fashion follower. However, my first impression was that I could totally wear the dress out to one of the girlies' wedding! Haa! I'll be Lady Gragra!

By saying the concert was "good", it is definitely an understatement (quoted from my friend BOO). It was awesome, entertaining, shocking and provocative, the BEST I have seen in recent years!. I don't think there is another performer who can supercede Lady Gaga's supremacy, maybe Madonna, but that's about it. Pau and I were very satisified with being seated the whole time and just watching the concert in awe. It was $222 well spent.

Mother Monster, we will see you tonight

It's only right to use this photo since it is paleo-friendly.

First Entry

Its been awhile since I blogged, the last time was in 2007, when I had a Xanga account. I was keeping my limited readers updated about life in Boston. Fast forward to 2012, I am happily married to Paleoporean (eating paleo but technically not Singaporean), and jumping onto the bandwagon of eating healthy (clean) and keeping fit, which is exactly the reason why we set up a blog. This, you can read more when Paleoporean decide to go about setting up a 'About Us' section.

Last evening, I was suppose to attend the Techniques class at Bobbi's Pole Studio. Unfortunately, the scrape on my left knee was still weeping and had to give the class a miss. I have been plagued by a series of bad luck since I got promoted to the Prep-Advanced class. I had to miss a couple of classes due to the cold virus and now, another one or two to allow the wound to heal. I could persist and went ahead with class, but I doubt all the left-leg hangs and crazy leg splits will help in recovery at all. Instead, I ran on the treadmill at the gym, 4K in ~22 minutes. For dinner, Pau (my affectionate nickname for Paleoporean) was sweet to make me a nice, quick dinner of Garlic Herb sausage that we bought from The Butcher (located at Chip Bee Gardens) and stir-fried broccoli with Proscuitto de Parma bought from Hubers Butchery.  

I shall keep this virgin entry short and end with a photo of my post-run dinner. Till the next time the wife blog...

Slow Cooked Beef Brisket

This crazy delicious beef brisket was braised overnight, all slow like, in what else? Our slow cooker. I nuzzled it up to some home made guacamole, mixed greens and a couple of boiled eggs.
