Voyage de la Vie @ Resorts World Sentosa

Hubby got a pair of complimentary tickets for Voyage de la Vie from his band mate and thus, we got to watch the show yesterday for free!  We were seated at the Stall, the ticket price for the Stall seat is priced at $88 each for the supposedly 90 minutes show.  The show started at 5pm and ended promptly at 6pm.  We were quite surprised that it ended so fast. 

I loved all the acrobat acts especially the dangerous swinging rope act by Liina Aunola and I didn't really care much about the plot.  This is not really a musical, the circus/ acrobat performances should be the highlight.  In fact, I also felt that all the singing and "acting" by Johnathan Leong was a bit redundant.  Most of the time, he was just an observer, trying to look curious and atonished in every scene as he doen't possess any acrobat skills.. ya.. so he just sing...

I was still puzzled why the show was only 1 hour and when I reached home, I did a search on the Internet.  From their facebook page, I got to know that one of the main casts, "The Diva" was injured and so she is still unable to perform.  The Magician's straitjacket act also not in.  No "Crystal Cat" too.  The game master for our show was Kevin Carpenter and not the very popular and cute Alexey Goloborodko.  Kevin is also very flexible although Alexey is more famous.  Thus, our show that we watched was somehow incomplete.  Luckily, our tickets were complimentary.  I will feel quite sad to pay the same price ticket for an incomplete show.    More information on the casting can be found here at Resorts World Blog

No photography and videography is allowed during the show.  A lady seated in front of me still took photos of the show with flash and she was told to delete her photos.  :P

We decided to have a simple dinner at Ruyi resturant as hubby needed to rush off to work after this.  This was the second time we dined at Ruyi, the first time we had "Ruyi" is at the airport before we departed for Melbourne last December.
Nice flower-shaped ceiling lamps in the restaurant

This is Chinese Fast Food.  Many of the cooking processes are done automated.  However, I don't find their signature Ruyi Fried Rice very nice.  It was a bit dry and salty.  $6.20 for this bowl of fried rice is really a tad expensive.  Their soup, which come together in the set, was even more salty.

Although the show was complimentary, we payed a parking fee of $23 for about 2 and a half hour of parking.  Next time, will not park at resort world. :(

I went to watch it a few months back on complimetary tickets too. Love the show. They had a kind of 15 minute pre-show thing where 2 actors do some mime joke thing. Ya it would be quite terrible to pay the full price without getting the full deal? I was gasping at the high trapeze act. I kept fearing she would fall! No safety hook! Why do these people not have fear of heights?????

My parents had the fried rice at ruyi and they thought it was a disaster!
