“Captivating, timeless, a musical delight…

WANDERS is a one-of-a-kind musical extravaganza that top bills our best homegrown talents in the entertainment scene. It showcases world-class Filipino performers who are out to captivate audiences with soulful renditions of timeless classics and vibrant dance numbers. A fusion of cultures, the show also highlights gravity-defying aerial acrobatics and stunning displays of skills by flamboyant performers from China and Russia.”



I have always found this ad intriguing ever since I saw it. I wrote it on my wish list, that I may come across the opportunity to watch it. Thanks to my good friend and Business Network International co-member Armand, this has come to fruition. I brought my five-year old son Terence. He is a juggling fanatic and spends most of his time viewing youtube videos of magic, acrobatic and juggling acts. I had no doubt in my mind that he will enjoy.

The show ran for one hour and forty five minutes. Thirty minutes into the show, Terence asks me, “Mom, what time is it?” I reply “It’s 9:15. Why do you ask? Are you sleepy?” He answers, “Not at all, actually, I don’t want it to end just yet.” I was delighted with his response knowing that he was enjoying the show.

My favorite number was the silk ballet “The Flight of Love”. It featured two performers who were flying in the air with the aid of harnesses. I was very touched as I saw them fly like angels, and at that instant, I knew what I want. Like them, I want to fly! The best way to describe my feeling was that of a mystical, out of body feeling. It was more than the yearning for adrenaline rush that a skydiver gets as he jumps of the plane, but that nudge to be free from everything that binds me and pulls me down.
