Hello again, or should I say Guten Tag!?
As you may not know, I went back to Germany with my beau. We had such a wonderful time, and now I want Germany to adopt me. All of the food was so fresh, there are many amazing vegan places to eat and we went on adventures and explorations every single day. If you haven’t been, you need to. I feel that Germany as a holiday destination, is so overlooked. Well, in the U.K. it is anyway. I’m going to be sharing more of what we did and where we are over the next few posts, but I want to share with you our last night in Berlin.
The sun was shining, I was with my favourite, and we had a table booked for Kimchi Princess. Kimchi Princess is a Korean restaurant where we had genuine Korean BBQ, cocktails and some kimchi of course. I’ll be posting a review soon.
We had arrived early, so headed across the road to a Mexican cantina for some cocktails. They were delicious, although potent so I bet you can imagine where this is going.
After a delicious dinner, we realised there was a karaoke bar nearby. Monster Ronsons Ichiban Karaoke to be exact. It sounded fun, so we thought a few more drinks and some singing would be a treat.
After hopping off the U-bahn, we headed over and were told on the door that there was some live music on, and that the main karaoke stage would be open afterwards. We could hire a booth, or watch the show. I’m always up for an adventure, so the show it was. Enter, Loving the Alien.
As soon as I sat down, and the show started; I knew I would love it. Imagine if the Rocky Horror Picture show had a love child with David Bowie and was the most fascinating and exhilarating thing you had ever seen and you get the idea. Everyone brought something different, and gelled in a way that you don’t really get nowadays.
The outfits and styling were impeccable, and the short videos in between kept the story moving and everybody engaged. Perfection.
I was held in the bubble of the show, I couldn’t focus on anything else. I wanted to know what would happen, the tongue in cheek jokes and one liners kept me laughing and sniggering all the way through.
The story of Iggy, an otherworldly being and how he learnt about earth and love really touched a chord with me. We can all learn from each other no matter how different we may seem. We all need love.
If you are lucky enough to be in Berlin on Thursday, head over to Monster Ronsons and see the final night showing of Loving the Alien. It’s one of the best, and they really are a talented and wonderful group of people, and I’ve been to the west end don’t you know ?
They all really were a delightful bunch, and I spent so much time (drunkenly) telling them how cool and amazing and wonderful they were. I must admit I feel the love when I’ve had a bit of gin. ?
In other news, I got horrendously drunk and decided it would be a good idea to sing on a stage. I have seen video evidence. It’s not a nice sound… bit like a strangled cat. But I have a wonderful picture of me on stage for proof. It doesn’t look like me, to me anyway. I look almost glamorous. Guess I still have some self confidence issues to work through ?
I have so many updates, but I’ve been unwell recently. Don’t fret though, I’m feeling much better now and I’m back to my usual, unusual delightful self. Many more to follow my lovely little flowers.
