Review: Wooster and Jeeves in Perfect Nonsense at Capitol Theatre

Ever watched a comedy live? Wooster and Jeeves is back in Singapore! What that means for you is a hilarious time of old British humor if you can appreciate it. The accent may require some getting used to but if the male actors' impressions of old ladies don't crack you up, probably nothing will. With exaggerated movements, a dose of silliness on the part of the actors and their stage props, the play will leave you in laughter.

Watch the story unveil before your eyes as Bertie Wooster both narrates and acts out his recount with the help of two other characters, Jeeves and Seppings, the butler. With just three actors, they manage to pull off an entire play juggling the roles of many others through what is seemingly an ordinary day in the life of Bertie Wooster.

[Review] Wicked The Musical live in Singapore at Mastercard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands

Wicked The Musical live in Singapore Review:
Can you imagine a flurry of wild flying monkeys, with creepy music playing and spotlights dancing on the stage? How about guards brandishing their weapons and 18th century people adorned in green costumes? That's right, welcome to the Emerald City. A city of dreams only to the naive.

No one needs introduction to the main character Elphaba who is decked in black and mocked due to her green colored skin. Yet, she is only as ugly as you think she is. Wait till you hear her break out in song, one of the highlights of the musical. It will leave you in awe. Personally, I found the lyrics to be most catchy and uplifting, full of positive vibes.

Wicked is no doubt one of the best musicals with a theme focused on friendship and sacrifice. A light hearted musical that gives you a different perspective to the story of the Wizard of Oz, it does not fail to entertain. Just Glinda and her regular hair tosses and jokes at expense at her shallow character will keep you laughing in your seats.

A delightful grilling sensation with Jumbo Grill at Dunlop Street

Let’s get grill in this October at Jumbo Grill, a one-stop restaurant bar that brings popular skewers from all around the world to you. The Jumbo Grill serves a variety of scrumptious BBQ and grilled skewers from Turkish kebabs to Japanese yakitori, and Korean pork belly to Chinese skewers as well as our local skewers delights.

It was an amazing dining experience with my friends at the Jumbo Grill located at 42 Dunlop Street. We were first served with their signature Homemade Thai Ice Tea prepared by the boss himself and while waiting for our skewers to get grilled and BBQ-ed, we started off with our appetizer dish, the Salad Greens.

The fresh Salad Greens comes with Green lettuce, purple Lettuce, purple cabbage, pickled Zuccini & onion; cherry tomato dressed with extra Virgin olive oil & mixed herbs. It tastes refreshing and appetizing and it is definitely a good start before the grill dishes.

Thank you Jumbo Grill for the generous platter serving for our dinner. We had tried total of 8 skewers from Japanese yakitori, Korean Pork Belly, to Singapore’s favourite such as Satay chicken and Lamb skewers.

Singapore’s favourite: Satay Chicken
Indulge with the local all-time Singaporean favourite, Satay chicken is one of my favourite among all the skewers at Jumbo Grill. The tender and juicy Satay meats melt my mouth after a little dips on their signature Peanuts Satay sauce. It just tastes simply perfect for all Satay lovers!

Bacon-wrapped cherry tomato
Popping cherry juicy tomato that burst into your mouth immediately after the first bite, it mixed well with the freshly grilled Bacon, giving you the most mouthwatering sensation at Jumbo Grill.

Jumbo Grill hot seller: Lamb Skewers

Shiitake Mushroom

 Korean Pork Belly
Well-marinated Korean Pork Belly that suit Singaporean taste bud, and it goes well with the Premium beer served at Jumbo Grill too. It’s recommended!

My verdict:
My friends and I had a delightful dining experience at the Jumbo Grill. There was a wide variety of grilled and BBQed skewers for us to indulge in. Their meats were well-marinated and nicely cut making it look very appealing. They tasted good with their signature Peanut Satay sauce and Thai chilli, leaving an enjoyable aftertaste. I was specially in love with their flavourful homemade authentic Thai Ice Tea. Overall, Jumbo Grill is a brilliant place to chill out at with friends and I will definitely go back again!
