Was so lucky to see Carlos Acosta and Tamara Rojo dance the opening night. I've sincerely fallen in love with their passion and dedication for the arts. Every one of their movements really touched corners of my emotions. I've already treasured every memory I can recall from their performance that night.
By the time it ended at 10pm, I was addicted to a couple of things. Tamara Rojo and Prokofiev's score. Loving Tamara Rojo basically meant endless YouTube views of Rojo talking, dancing, and pretty much 'forever lasting with perfection' pirouettes.
Prokofiev stalking meant getting the full piano score of Romeo and Juliet, Op.64 and attempting to play it. Yet sometimes I wish I didn't over-estimate myself. So now I've humbled back slightly to his Ten Pieces for Piano of Romeo and Juliet, Op.75.
Time to get on a plane now back to Brisbane and touch a piano as soon as possible!
Saw the sushi class in action! Really wanted to be a part of it but the next class was at 3.30pm. Couldn't wait that long, so we ended up buying lunch from the freshly made Japanese food fridge. There was a huge variety of Japanese food - from white rice sushi to brown rice sushi, chicken to prawn, chirashi to sashimi, and sesame ice-cream to strawberry cheesecake. I ended up having a chirashi (which was really the leftover bits of sushi all packed into one plate) and seaweed salad with sesame oil. I haven't had it in a long time! It's one of my mum's favourite side dishes and mine too! Love the punches of spice give by the slices of chilli too.
After lunch, we went around the grocery store to buy some ingredients for beef udon lunch and gyoza dinner, plus dried seaweed - a childhood favourite snack. Scroll through the slideshow below to have a look around the store!
It's the middle of nothing to do week (*cough cough to a stack of repertoire*) and I was invited to a Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club. Free entrance for RCM students - thumbs up to jazz students.
*Sorry about the dark images. It was indeed very, very, very dark. I had trouble seeing the menu so I ended up using my Assistive Light app on my phone. Thanks Samsung.
