My daughter and I manage to watch the “Storyland: Cosplay Meet & Greet” where cosplayers entertained us with their lovely costumes and dance.. the kids definitely had a fun time getting to meet the Asian or Malaysian version of Belle, Beast, Snow White, Sailor Moon, Harley Quinn, Joker and so on… And posed with them…

The “Street Beats: Brass Ensemble” promises fun in music—street musicians playing drums, trombones, and trumpets, among others. Kind of reminded me of a certain band at the Universal Studios Osaka as well… But definitely not lacking..

Do take the opportunity to celebrate your holidays with your kids with pomp and gaiety at Boulevard’s Parade at the Open Car Park of Genting Grand.

We were there to watch the Soul of Shaolin theatrical show.. being among the oldest institutionalised styles of Chinese martial arts, Shaolin kung fu is second to none in terms of beauty and artistry.

Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story is touching tale of the life of a Shaolin monk. The tale begins with a woman who is forced to abandon her son when she finds herself harassed and chased by some bandits. The woman hid her baby among tall grass before jumping off a cliff in her effort to evade capture.

The child is later found by Na Luo, a Shaolin kung fu monk, who also picks up a piece of broken jade he finds near the former.

Years go by, and the child, named Hui Guang, grows strong and healthy—raised and taught by Na Luo and also Miao Xing, the abbot of Shaolin Temple.

Hui Guang’s past is not hidden from him; the truth is revealed to him, along with the piece of jade.

When he learns about his past, Hui Guang gets drunk and ends up provoking other monks. He is then punished by Miao Xing who places him in a cave known as Bodhidharma. As it turns out, Hui Guang learns about being a paragon of virtue—that it is the real soul of Shaolin.

  1. Don’t I wish I could watch Shaolin kung fu live! When I was in Beijing, I really wanted to go but didn’t have enough time suddenly!! Now that Shaolin is practically at my door step, must make greater effort to go.
