A Tale About Our Princess

Barney Live in Malaysia

12th November 2005:
We took Princess to watch Barney & the Musical Castle Live in KL Convention Centre at Plenary Hall. Poor Lil Darien had to taken care by my mom. Initially we thought of bringing Darien there but he’s only 12 months old and we’re afraid that he’ll demand this and that. So it would be the wiser to live him with my mom. The whole journey, Princess was asking where is ‘titi’ (little brother). We explained to her that her brother is too young to go. Next time when he’s older we’ll bring him. She seemed understand and nodded. The next moment, she asked again. It was endless. We took LRT .. thinking that its a 1st time ride for Princess and Daddy. It had been years since the last time I took the LRT. It was a bad choice this time round. I had forgotten we had to stop over in so many stations and Princess was scared the whole journey through. We had to carry her in our arms. Carrying a two year old is no joke …. Boy! She’s heavy. She’s a timid little girl. Upon reaching the concert hall. Everywhere was pasted Barney this and Barney that. Our girl got so excited. We had been telling her about this concert a few days back. And now here we are … Barney the purple dinosaur! When entering the concert hall, I told her .. “see there at the stage, Barney will come out from there later”. Then she told me .. “I don’t want”. Oh my Gosh! I was like what does she mean by she does’t want? She was mad about Barney. Oh Boy .. this is going to be a challenge. Daddy tried to pacify her telling her it was ok while I booked for seats. We bought the cheapest tickets so the seatings were free. I was thinking of getting the $130 ticket but was thinking what if she’s scared then we’ll waste all the tickets. So I chose the cheaper ticket. She asked Daddy to go to the highest seat. Poor poor Daddy. Finally, when the show was about to start, she decided to sit where I was sitting.
The start of the show begins with the Barney theme song (in a yankee doodle tune) that goes like …

Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination
When he’s tall he’s what we call a dinosaur sensation
Barney teaches lots of things like how to play pretend
A-B-C’s and 1-2-3’s and how to be a friend
Barney comes to play with us
Whenever we may need him
Barney can be your friend too
If you just make believe him

Overall, she enjoyed the show. Being enclose like this is something new to her .. so I think it takes time for her to adjust. In the end, she ended up with two of Barney’s friends, Baby Bop and BJ. She already had Barney lying around at home.

We went for a friend’s wedding dinner at Summit Hotel Subang Jaya. As usual, poor Darien will be at my mom’s place. When we arrived there, Princess was clinging to us. We were like oh Gosh .. here we go again. There are loud noises here and there and our poor lil’ Princess got scared. Hmm … a quarter way through it, I took her back to my mom’s place leaving Daddy there. This was the 2nd wedding she went to. The 1st one she was clingy but not as bad as this one. There is another wedding we need to attend next month and another one after that. Hopefully by that time, she’ll be fine. I asked her .. why are you scared. She answered me “Many people”. That’s funny ‘cos when we went for shopping there are also lots of people. If she’s shy, I’d say not ‘cos she’s been out with our friends before and she’s ok with them as well. Don’t know … probably after effect of the Barney show … :)
