Encore @ Fort Canning Green (28th – 30th March 2014)

“Encore is a 3 night musical showcase featuring the musical movies “Mamma Mia!”, A hard days night’ from the Beatles & always popular “Grease”. “

Some snippets of the 3-day event 🙂

Day 1: “Mamma Mia!”

A mini rant!! We didn’t know that we can’t bring outside food to the venue 😦 so we packed picnic food on the first day. Was quite pissed off by the rather ridiculous rule as we actually paid about $20 per ticket for an open air screening of movie. And then forcing us to purchase $3 mineral water (yes you have to empty your bottles at the entrance), and another $10 – 15 buying food, same food everyday. I saw someone abandon their watermelon, it was quite funny. We think this is the most upsetting part of the screening and will deter us from joining next year.

Anyways, luckily we arrived slightly early on a Friday evening so we found a spot outside the venue, just next to the park to picnic first. Free live band from 5 pm to 7 pm before the movie screening. Singer (Syltra Lee), her voice super power!

No mood to cam-whore!! cuz we need to rush through our picnic!! boo

Decided to splurge on beer because of the promo buy 2 get 1 free (~$30 for 2 cans).

Kronenbourg 1664  The Blanc tasted very smooth and fruity (passionfruit / mango?)  Love it!

But not the very high quality type la…. hahs. And the humid weather made the popcorn turned soggy very fast.

 Arrived early so we went to take some photos at the photo booth! The props were rather interesting and apt.

We shared a roast chicken breast salad which were not bad, meat wasn’t too dry and salad dressing was tangy and appetizing. Salad $10 + Fries $5 + Water $3

This movie was my least favourite, maybe because I am not so much of a Beatles fan. *shrugs

 

Day 3: “Grease!!!”

 My favourite movie of the event! Grease reminded me of the 70s High School Musical. The leading actress (Olivia Newton-John) was so pretty and graceful in the movie. The million dollar question: why is the movie called Grease? 

 Overall I enjoyed myself over these 3 days 🙂
