The Sound of Music

Guess what? We went to Lintas Supermarket last night to buy some groceries, and papa stumbled upon an old favourite movie ~ The Sound of Music. As lil C is very music incline, so we thought that he will definitely enjoys this show.

Well, he loved all the songs and the gimics the von Trapp's children was doing.
His favourites:
1. Lisle and Rolfe sang "16 going 17" (he'd climb his bench and started to imitate the energetic trotting of those two);
2. Do-Re-Mi (The children cycling);
3. The Lonely Goathered puppet show.

We enjoyed the show too.. I guess there's nothing more than a classic-feel-good kinda movie (not to forget the family sing-a-long too! hehehe)

As usual, after watching it, I went to googles.com to read more about the Von Trapps. and guess what, the movie wasnt as true story as we all wished for.. Apparently, Maria wasnt hired to be the governess for the children, but only as a teacher to one of the illed von Trapp's children. Secondly, the names and sexes of the Von Trapps children werent the same as seen in TV (There were 9 children in reality, before they left Austria)... hmmm... the lists can just go on!!! To you who are interested, check The Real Story of the Von Trapps to start of with! They didnt run away to Switzerland, but went to Italy by train, then continued and settled in Vermont, USA. There, they have their family business, The Trapp Family Lodge... sigh!

So, where are the Sound of Musics Children?

Can you see the resemblance after 40 years? guess who's who before checking out their site!
