So the famous Madame Tussauds is here in Singapore. Having not visited the one in HK, this was the first time we stepped into one of the 18 Madame Tussauds attractions in the world. Statistics have shown that the attraction draws million visitors across the world every year. So we are now officially one of the millions.
Good thing about attending a media invite was the lesser crowd in the attraction, we have all the time to slowly take a stroll around the place and take more than usual number of photos. But the disadvantage was not able to see all the wax figures as some are still under construction.
Nonetheless, I have nothing to complain as we had a fun time taking selfies with the celebrities, both local and international.
The attraction takes the visitor on a journey through different segments like Film, TV Studio, Leaders, Sport, Music, etc.
My personal favourite, Ghandi.
See how real it can be!
There is also a room where they show you the process of creating a wax figure. Quite interesting to read.
Every created wax figures has to be approved by the celebrities before work can be done. However, it is a rare occurrence for someone to decline to be included.
Do you agree that the local celebrities are usually not so real? Or maybe it’s me who have seen them more on TV.
Puah Chu Kang has to be our family’s favorite character.
The famous yellow boots!
Who is the real king of music?
Jayne trying her best to a pop star.
Jack Neo is also part of this category. And doesn’t the wax figure look so real?
The kung-fu masters, past and current.
The contrast of their faces is not missed. But both are exceptional actors, no doubt.
The ladies’ like are so different. Mummy went for elegance of the East and Kless went for the manhood of the West.
Last but not the least, even ET was featured.
Do you know?
