Official Opening Night of the Hit Broadway Musical Aladdin

Image
The Hit Broadway Musical Aladdin has landed at the Marina Bay Sands, and you are guaranteed an awesome show that contains beautiful song pieces, glittering costumes and jaw-dropping sets that bring out the magic of the fantasy city of Agrabah! Singapore is the ONLY Asian stop for this show, hence do NOT give the show a miss! This musical will definitely leave a deep impression in Singapore's Musical Scene! 

The show is reminiscent of the 1992 original animated Disney film of the same name, and opens with the song 'Arabian Nights'! Aladdin's journey will take the audience into an exotic world full of daring adventures, classic comedy and timeless romance! This Broadway Musical keeps the magic of Disney's Aladdin alive for a whole new generation. 
Like the Disney animated film, the play tells the story of a young man with a kind heart, who comes into possession of a magical lamp containing a genie that grants three wishes! The plot is fairly similar, but with some mino…

(Jewel Changi Airport) Singapore Tea Festival + Herit8ge - 回忆

Image
I LOVE WEEKENDS!
We're back at the Jewel at Changi Airport again, after a hiatus of 3 months! Baby didn't come with me for the preview back in April, so this was an eye opener for him!

I was attracted by Herit8ge - 回忆 which is located at the highest level, and the restaurant offers modern western cuisine with a local/contemporary twist that pays homage to old school local Singaporean flavors! 

I ordered the Kou Rou Pasta (Chinese Braised Pork Belly with Pasta) Ooh... I loved the thick stewed meat gravy!
Baby ordered signature Char Siew Pork Ribs. The charred grilled pork ribs were served with satay sauce and 2 local sides - Achar (South Asian pickles) and Ketupat (type of Malay dumpling made from rice).
Overall, the food is decent and can be considered affordable, as compared to the other restaurants within Jewel. Thanks Tracy, for the SGD10 voucher which offset our meal! We paid SGD38 for the two of us!
The annual Singapore Tea Festival by Teapasar was held at Jewel Changi Airport,…

[USA TRIP] My visit to Washington, DC

Image
After spending 4 days in New York, we checked out from the Avalon Hotel in the morning and made our way by foot to Penn Station to catch our bus to Washington D.C. Baby did his homework and read up from various websites on all recommended bus companies that ply the New York to Washington D.C route. There were various mixed reviews on different companies, and in the end we decided on using the Tripper Bus Service.
We were glad that complimentary WIFI were rendered to the passengers on-board the bus, as the journey to Washington DC was about 4.5hours. The damage for our round-trip was USD134.50 for 2 pax. The drop off point was at Arlington, and we purchased a metro card each to take the metro train to our hotel! Our hotel was between the two metro stations of Foggy Bottom and Dupont Circle, and a 5 to 10 minute walk was required!
We checked into 'The Wink', a small boutique hotel in the neighbourhood area Dupont Circle. The amenities were well stocked, and I loved their body lo…
