Anniversary date with Lion King

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, August 06, 2011
On 8 Aug 2003, my THEN boyfriend waited outside my school gate to pick me up after our National Day celebration, brought me to his house and went down on his knees with a bouquet of sunflowers (my favourite flower by the way) and asked me to be his girlfriend. One year later, 8 Aug 2004, I got married to him... It has been 7 years of marriage and I find that I am loving Chee Tiong more and more... Anyway, for our anniversary date, CT brought me to go watch Lion King as he knew I have always wanted to watch it AGAIN. Yes, the last time I caught it was probably about 10 years ago when I was in London with my family as we went there for holiday cum visit as my brother was studying in Imperial College for an exchange programme during his NUS days then. I enjoyed it so much that when I knew it would be coming to Singapore, I kept telling CT that he had to catch it! Before the show, we went to Raffles City for lunch. I am not one who craves after expensive food. It really doesnt matter to me. Company is definitely more important to me. So anyway, we had Macdonalds for lunch as there was a promotion for the new burgers! It was 2 for the price of 1! After Macs, we went to "The Handburger" Restaurant in Raffles City basement for a dessert burger which we was also a 1-for-1 promotion as well! How cool! We are definitely a sucker for promotions as you can tell!
I would definitely go back to this place to try their beef burgers! Yum yum.. After lunch, we walked over to Marina Bay Sands for the Lion King show.
We bought the 2nd most expensive tickets as were sitting about 7th row from the stage. So, it was pretty near.
The theatre is pretty nice. However, I was slightly disappointed with the stage as I was comparing with what the one I saw in London and the stage in Singapore seemed smaller. Moreover, they added local flair into the show like Chinese or singlish...so it felt kind of strange. Nevertheless, I enjoyed myself especially when I was sitting by the aisle and got close brush with the crew as they came down from the aisle quite a number of times. I even reached my hand and touched the elephant! Thanks dear for the date! May we continue to have many more good years ahead with each other...
