Wicked Singapore

Last weekend me and Ariel headed down to Singapore to catch the musical; Wicked.

Exploration mode

We stayed in a building which reminded me of a Japanese school and we stumbled on an elephant porn shop (no kidding – at least that’s what they call it) and an ice cream shop which had tiramisu with a “kick” to it. 😀

Whenever we watched a musical at Marina Bay Sands, we’d prefer eating nearby to not worry of being late. But don’t expect the greatest of food, especially in the food court.

Decent looking Sarawak noodles

It was definitely decent looking but you can say, it’s only to fill your stomachs necessarily.

The musical was suppose to tell the origin of the Wicked Witch of the West. And having not watched the Wizard of Oz film before (yes, you may scream blasphemy) I didn’t know what to expect.

Last time we watched The Lion King, I got us seats nearby the stage but it was too near to the right – where the speakers were placed. Though in my defence, I couldn’t help it because the seat selection was automated and I never expected the speakers there. 🙁

This time for Wicked, I bought seats which were a little more pricier and you’d seat in the center rows. However, we weren’t all that tall so taller patrons kind of obscured our view. So, we may try the booth seats in future – if they allow me to purchase 2 tickets.

Thankfully, the musical was superb. It’s theatre design and performance was of the quality when we watched The Lion King musical. I’ve watched the musical Cats in Malaysia but for some odd reason, I’m not sure why the quality wasn’t as great compared to both musicals in Singapore. *shrug*

And before I wrap up this post, can you tell me what’s wrong with this photo?

Curry sauce, really?!

I was quite shocked to see the sauce. But thinking how bad it could be was a bad decision. The sauce was sweet and you could taste the eeny meeny bits inside it, like what you get from low cost sauce. I didn’t touch it after 1 dip. *shivers*
