    A must visit place in SG.
    Make sure to take a stroll on promenade, go on rooftop for a drink and some good pictures.
    There is a library at level 3, a must see how well maintained Singapore public libraries are.

    There is a so called food street that opens at 4pm till late selling local food, more of a tourist trap.
    Better to go Lau Pa Sat for more authentic experience.

    Was there to watch Josh Groban’s concert in Feb 2019.

    It was a nice theater. Certainly quite big. Could accommodate about 5 thousand people. Side by side to a mall.

    Advisable to order grab or go car after a performance at night, as taxi were not much or actually hired.

    Caught a couple of musical/plays here and the one thing i remember is if you purchase the grand circle seats, be prepared to crane your neck or get annoyed with the ones sitting in the row before you. If they choose to lean forward during the show, it will block your view of the stage. Also, although the seats were fine, they can get quite uncomfortable after a while.

    If you have been looking forward to the musical/play, ensure that your ticket is at least for the dress circle seats. Otherwise, the theatre is not too bad.

    It has been years since I visited this theatre and it has not changed much. Enjoyed the short film. Worth a visit especially if you plan to visit the Science Centre or Snow City as they are located next to each other.

    It's a beautiful open concept for eatery and meeting up. Together with the capitol theatre, the old movie theatre transform to a classic event place.

    First Time Here For The Lion King Musical.

    Love The Professionalism Team Who Make The Entire Flow From Check In To Seating Arrangement.

    One Point That Definitely Need Immediate Attention Will Be The Washroom! Imagine Hundreds Of People May Want To Go To The Washroom At The Same Time During The Interval Break? Is Havoc!

    So My Advice Will Be, Go To The Washroom Before The Show Starts, And Try Not To Go Washroom If There Is No Need During The Interval Break. The Ladies Washroom Que Is Scary.

    A wonderful introduction to the ancient art of Chinese Opera. Our evening started with dinner including a delightful Lychee infused Chinese Tea, all the while excerpts of opera were shown on the TV. After dinner our host gave us the historical and artistic context of the costumes, makeup, music and stories.
    At the end we were treated to a performance which incorporated what we just learnt. The costumes and makeup were a sight to behold.
    A great way to spend Friday night in Singapore and an essential part of any Singapore holiday.

    I came here towards the end of Feb 2020 to see the play, "Lifespan of a Fact". This was a relatively short production of less than 3 hours with just the 3 characters, but it was really very good. The first time I've seen a play in a long time, and very lucky I did as it may be a very long time before it is possible again due to the virus situation.

    I visited the Substation Gallery recently to view Yeo Tze Yang's solo exhibition titled “Evening, Once More". The artist is very talented for his almost photographic-like oil paintings that depict scenes of ordinary life in urban settings. The paintings captured brilliantly the twilight hours from 6.30-7.30 pm. This exhibition is opened from 1-8 pm until July 12 2021.
    I also attended a free one hour tour by Raymond around The Substation during the weekend. He was enthusiastic in explaining about the arts and the buildings near to the Substation. I became more aware of the murals around the Substation. They are:
    1) Sing Along If You Know The Words by SpeakCryptic (2019) on the upper wall at the alley between Substation and Peranakan Museum
    2) 𝘼𝙧𝙩 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙗𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙗 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 on the lower wall by Suan Toh Bee (2020) which is very popular with children
    3) All Good in the Hood by Hellopigu (2019)
    4) Solidarity Project by Singaporean crew RSCLS with an Indonesian crew (2013)
    There is another Solidarity Project by RSCLS between Singaporean and Thai artists from Bangkok (2015) in the alley connecting Waterloo and Queen Streets next to Hotel Oxford.
    5) Rasa Sayang by Lab Six Five on wall facing Stamford Road (2019). This is a very pretty mural capturing the Peranakan culture and plants as this area is also a park in the city.
    He also shared interesting snippets such as the former S11 food centre between the former National Library and the Substation which was a popular and convenient food haunt and that S11 stands for the $ sign.
    The Substation was a former power substation built in 1926 in the modern style with its steel framed glass windows and the iconic flag poles. It was founded in September 1990 by Cultural Medallion winner and playwright-dramatist, Kuo Pao Kun but it will moved out of this premise soon after 31 years here.

    A great evening watching this good production. Athletic performers and actors, prancing all over the whole theater was a treat. Cats from British actors and actresses. Some were trained ballet background . Worthwhile.

    Too disappointed by the midday show. All dancers were very good except the 2 soloists who were very boring to watch, did not give much emotion.
    Ballet was good though thanks to nice choregraphy and brightful costumes
