Cirque du Soleil Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is a must watch!

A few days ago, I caught my very first Cirque du Soleil performance. The name Cirque du Soleil has been around for 3 decades, but due to various reasons including costs (it costs a pretty penny!), I’ve never been able to watch one until recently. If you’re new to Cirque du Soleil, and have the impression that they return to Singapore every couple of years or so, note that it’s not actually the same show returning. The current one being featured at Bayfront is Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities and is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since starting in 1984.

If you’ve never watched a Cirque du Soleil performance, now is the best chance because I am told that Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the better performances around. A Cirque du Soleil performance is not just your average circus show with acrobats and death defying acts. It’s so much more than that. It’s music, it’s theatre, its drama, it’s beautiful costumes and of course heart-stopping jaw-dropping acts, all beautifully weaved together in a fantasy storyline and whimsical stage props. Speaking of props, there are 426 props in Kurios, the most of any production in Cirque du Soleil’s history.

Bee Choo Origin – Herbal Hair Treatment

[Sponsored Post]

For the longest time ever, I have been wanting to find a solution to my thinning crown. Even prior to giving birth to Edward, I had considered consulting various professional hair treatment services that are popular in the market. However, a couple of things bugged me. One was obviously the exorbitant cost, made worse by the fact that you need several treatments before actually seeing results. Second being that I have had conflicting feedback from friends, some claiming that the treatments are just gimmicks and don’t really work. In the end, I never did visit any hair treatment businesses due to sheer inertia and doubtfulness.

Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment (8)

Thankfully, recently I was approached by Bee Choo Origin to try out their hair treatment services. To be frank, I only had a vague impression of Bee Choo Origin as being some neighbourhood hair care business near my parents’ place. I was wondering why they would contact me for a collaboration. I did a brief check, and to my surprise, Bee Choo Origin actually has 7 outlets in Singapore and many more in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and even South Korea! Not bad for a business that was established only in 2000 as a home-based business with just a stand-alone steamer!

Musical TARU (恐龙复活了!) – A Review

I can’t believe 2018 just passed like that in a blink of an eye. Don’t you think the period between Christmas and New Year’s gives off such a weird feeling? Like you’re still in a Christmassy mood yet you need to keep reminding yourself that Christmas is over. And New Year’s Day is when you realise that not only is Christmas well and truly over (the malls in Singapore don’t seem to believe in the 12 days of Christmas because Chinese New Year decorations are up), but that even the YEAR is over!

My New Year’s resolution for this year is to get off my ass and try something new, each and everyday. I think trying new restaurants and cafes is the easiest (!) but I also want to have new experiences be it in terms of travelling to new places, reading new books or even watching new performances. I have actually been in that framework of mind since December, so I can say December saw a few first from me. One of which is still etched in my mind is my one day trip to JB with 2 friends. It’s the first time I have travelled overseas with friends (not family) in more than a decade, and also probably a decade since I last visited JB. I am itching to go again! Blog post on that JB day trip will be up soon.

Another first that I can report is watching a musical in Mandarin, the Musical TARU! It is a Mandarin production that has been locally adapted from Korea’s No. 1 Family Musical. I have not watched any theatre performances in the longest time due to time constraints, and much less one in Mandarin! It was also Edward’s first musical and the husband’s first musical in Mandarin! My Mandarin isn’t that great, although I definitely can understand conversational Chinese. Even people who do not understand Mandarin can watch the musical because English subtitles are provided via two screens mounted on the left and right walls beside the stage. I had to depend a lot on the subtitles though because it often is a little bit more difficult to decipher what is being said when it is being sung instead of spoken.
