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.

Musical TARU (恐龙复活了!)

Opportunities to watch musicals in English are a plenty in Singapore. However, what about those in Mandarin? Glad to report that from now until 13 Jan 2019, Resorts World Sentosa will be staging Musical  TARU, a Mandarin production that has been locally adapted from Korea’s No. 1 Family Musical. It’s also a musical that is suitable for children, not only because of the catchy songs and dances but because there will also be life-sized dinosaurs!

Unique Dim Sum dishes at Avenue Joffre (Sentosa)

Do you get the feeling that if you’ve tried one dim sum restaurant, you’ve tried them all? While the culinary scene in Singapore has been hotting up and throwing out all manner of new and exciting dishes, it has not been the same case when it comes to dim sum. Don’t get me wrong, I love eating har gow, siew mai and cheong fun, and these are must orders whenever I have dim sum, but I also want a few new dishes as well to whet my appetite and make the entire experience memorable.

Well, I’m glad to say I’ve finally found a restaurant that serves dim sum I’ve never tried before, and the dim sum dishes taste good! It might be a bit tiresome to have to go into Sentosa, but at least Avenue Joffre is just a 3 min walk from the monorail station, and it is well worth the effort. And the best part is, the prices are very reasonable for the quality that is served. Most of the dim sum dishes are priced at a standard $6++ per basket.

But before I delve into the dim sum proper, I would like to add that their roast meats are fantabulous too! The meats are marinated for 1/2 a day and roasted over lychee-wood, rendering the meats with a subtle fruity flavour.

Avenue Joffre - Honey-glazed BBQ Pork $18 (3)

Honey-glazed BBQ Pork $18

Just look at the lusciousness of the bbq pork, so juicy and tender, and enveloped by the sticky sweet honey glaze! Each slice has been cut extra thick for you to get maximum impact.

Fengshui Inn Resorts World

*Media Invite*

Written and photographed by Jerry Wee

It would be a wasted opportunity if one does not play a part in the Singapore 50 years of Nation building.  Same goes for Feng Shui Inn at Crockford Towers Hotel Resorts World Sentosa where you can enjoy their celebratory SG50 Dim Sum a-la-carte on Friday and Saturday 28th and 29th August. Chef Li Kwok Kwong, who hails from Hong Kong, has created a premium selection 42 dishes in Cantonese style just for your enjoyment.

It was great that I had the opportunity to sample a selection of the  42 dishes and did not regret making the trip down to the somewhat inaccessible Feng Shui Inn at Crockford Towers Hotel for this dining experience.

The restaurant wasted no time in bringing in the appetisers and the dish that hit you visually and aroused your sense of smell was the Crispy Fried bitter gourd with salted egg yolk. This dish alone set the mood right for the dining experience. Most dishes did not disappoint and were visually appealing to boot.
