Once upon a Twelfth Night

I have always been an avid fan of Shakespeare in the Park ever since I watched A Midsummer’s Night Dream by Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) in Sec 3 for a Literature field trip. After Macbeth last year, I managed to catch this year’s production: Twelfth Night.

For those not familiar with the story, to make it simpler, refer to the movie She’s the Man if you have watched it before! Otherwise, the plot of the original Shakespeare play: Twelfth Night.

One thing to note about SRT is that they often inject humour and “Singaporean” flavours into the play to engage the audience. It helps to facilitate the understanding of the play, and also a deeper insight into Literature for people who may not be very familiar with Shakespearean English.

I have to say, I was totally mesmerised by Adrian Pang’s performance of Feste, who livened the entire play with his crazy antics. I was particularly amused by Daniel Jenkins’ role of Malvolio, who provided to core comic relief to the play.

Also, Shakespeare in the Park also provides a great setting for a night picnic under the stars whilst enjoying the play! I loved the set particularly this year, I guessed it was the nicest set I have ever seen in the 3 productions I attended.

Oh and look at the barang barang other people brought!

People were really armed with stools, brollies, picnic baskets, repellent and all! I’d recommend bringing a poncho though, with the erratic weather Singapore’s been having. I got caught in the rain without one! ):

If you’d like to try watching a Shakespearean play production, I would say Twelfth Night is a good show to start with as it is a comedy, and the story is not complicated to understand. At the end of the day, Twelfth Night will leave you reeling with laughter, and ensuring an enjoyable night, to you and your companions (:

Shows run until 20th May (Sunday), grab your tickets if you haven’t! (:

Love, Vee!

Long time no see, my friends.

Finally got the chance to meet up with the tension girls over dinner on Friday, and at the same time I was able to satisfy my ramen craving at Ramen Play @ Junction 8!

Ordered a Spicy Tonkatsu Ramen, I love my ramen spicy and soupy, absolutely delish and it definitely hit all the right spots! 😀

Spicy Tonkatsu Ramen $10.90++

They even have the tamago (the braised egg) with a slight runny centre, exactly the way I like it 😀 The soup base was rich yet non over-powering, and the noodles were really bouncy too! I think I found my new favourite ramen heehee 😀

And you should totally ask the waiters for the chilli chives, they really add an extra kick to the meal and a good company to the ramen! The waiters are all really chirpy and polite, it was genuinely a good dining experience (:

Verdict: 4/5
