According to the MC, they had a very hectic schedule, having 6 performances in various schools before performing at Suntec City! Kudos to them for keeping up the standards and great performance!

Simple lunch @ West Coz Cafe

I had a simple set lunch at West Coz Cafe. 4 people, 2 sets and 6 dishes from 3 categories: side dishes, vegetables and fish/meat. Nice and not too expensive.

Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall Open House

The Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall had recently undergone renovation and upon completion, they held an open house with free performances. As usual, I brought my family down for to catch some fun.

First, we went for some piano performances at the concert hall, but my restless kids could not really appreciate.

Next we went for some indian dance performance by the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society. This time, they are mesmerized.

We then head for lunch and some rest at home, before coming back for another performance. We didn’t know the performance by the Chinese Theatre Circle was an Opera, and were even more surprised to find it done in English!

Between music and dance, I think they prefer the more physical performances.

CNY lunch at Miao Yi

Went with my colleagues for a Chinese New Year lunch at Miao Yi, a Chinese vegetarian restaurant. Due to the festive season, there are special dishes as well.

Compared to Indian vegetarian, Chinese vegetarian is really meant for those who can tame their mouths, but not their mind. 戒口不戒心。
