Saboten @ Parco Marina Bay

Before going for Kit Chan's Concert at Marina Bay Sands, we had our dinner at Saboten at Parco Marina.

Sauce for the tonkatsu.  3 scoops will be enough and mix it with the grounded sesame seeds.
Grinding the sesame seeds...

Free flow of shredded cabbage

Both of us ordered the Loin Katsu Set which comes with rice, pickles, miso soup, free-flow of cabbage and also desserts.
Great Tonkatsu served here.

We had a scoop of green tea ice-cream each.  The ice-cream was soft but nothing exceptional.
After dinner, we took our time to walk over to Marina Bay Sands, passing the helix bridge.  It took us around 15 minutes to walk from Millenia Walk to MBS.

Unarguably one of the most established local singers, Kit Chan is often dubbed as Singapore’s “national treasure” for good reasons. Since her debut in 1993, she has proven herself in many diversified areas – singing, theatre, television drama, poetry, song writing, community work, etc. 

Before the start of the concert, in her sexy voice, she made the "Not-so-standard" type of announcement to the audience:  “Please turn off your mobile phones, even if you own HTC phones and subscribe to SingTel” (the show was sponsored by HTC and SingTel ), and urged those who didn’t like the way she made the announcement not to write into the forum pages to complain.

The music director for the concert was Goh Kheng Long.  However, seated at the circle seat, I couldn't see the faces of the performers :(  Kit Chan impressed us with her good sense of humour and of cause, her great vocal.  I think she is really the best in Singapore!  Other than Mandarin songs, she also sang English, Cantonese and even French!
Photography is strictly not allowed during the concert.  If the usherer caught you taking photos/ recording the concert, he/ she will flash the torchlight at you which can be very embarrassing.
It was a great concert!  I totally enjoyed it and I think I will be getting her new album "Re-Interpreting Kit Chan" soon!
