"Sesame Street LIVE: Elmo Makes Music" To Our Ears


I'm pretty sure almost everyone of you know about Sesame Street. At the cost of sounding old, back in my day, Sesame Street was THE educational entertainment show to watch. From the likes of Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Grouch, Bert and Ernie, The Count and of course the furry red monster that was Elmo among other memorable characters, I learned my ABCs and 123s through the songs and dances on Sesame Street, and for a while, even thought Sesame Street was a real street in the US. 

Of course, as I grew up, I watched lesser and lesser Sesame Street. But I never forgot how awesome my childhood was as a direct result of the things that the Sesame Street characters brought to my TV screen every Saturday morning. So when I heard that Resorts World Genting was bringing the Sesame Street cast down to Malaysia, it was a blast of childhood nostalgia. 

I was invited to the official launch of the Sesame Street Live: Elmo Makes Music at Highstreet 1 Utama. It was insane because Resorts World Genting was pulling all the punches to make sure that the Sesame Street Live show was fully reminiscent to the glory days of the TV show. So they brought in Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie to liven up the crowd. 

Then suddenly, a familiar red, furry and giggling monster appeared. Elmo had arrived, and the children (and myself) squealed in delight. If you don't know what this feels like, just imagine seeing the Power Rangers morphing into action right in front of you. It's a childhood hero thing. 

The 2 monsters and whatever the heck Bert and Ernie are quickly livened up the crowd with a short musical performance; a prelude to the upcoming show. It was...beautiful.

The VIPs had to give a word or two about what they thought about Sesame Street Live. Mr. Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment was up first:

He was followed by Christopher Harper, the Director of ‘Sesame Street Live - Elmo Makes Music’ and my new favorite person in the world. He had this to say:

And of course, the customary group pictures with the 4 Sesame Street characters.

The boy in the front, third from the left is like: "Why am I not at the concert right now?!"

Because I was such a huge fan of the show, I was also invited onstage to pose with Bert, Ernie, Elmo and Cookie Monster. We're now Whatsapp buddies and regularly text each other just for the fun of it. Cookie Monster only knows how to type in one word though: cookie, but it's still cool.
