Wicked the Musical is back with a vengence !

If there is a musical you have to catch for 2016 and you have not watched a single one yet, I would say that it will have to be nothing else but Wicked ! Returning to Singapore for the 2nd time after a wonderful 1st run few years back, this time they are featuring an international cast.

With a simple story line about good & evil plus a friendship of two unlikely friends, this musical has so much to offer in a short 2.5 hours.

Plagued by her green appearance was the not so welcoming Elphaba who's mother passed away since young, and detested by her own father. It certainty isn't' easy being the odd ball. In the twist of fate, she became good friends with her popular but somewhat airhead blonde classmate, Glinda . She even taught Elphaba the art of hair tossing !  Jacqueline Hughes who played Elphaba has such strong powerful voice and it was a delight hearing her sing !In fact, most of the cast gave a thumbs up performance and has crisp strong voices too. 

Lighting and costumes plus the staging of the whole musical is nothing but perfect and wickelly captivating. ! If you ask me, it is truly my most enjoyed musical for the year.

 Guess some of you could be very familiar with this song lyric ..Love this song Defying Gravity sand by Elphaba



"Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap! "

I am sure children will also enjoy this production as
much as the adults ! It will end its run on 20 November 2016
Thu, 29 Sep - Sun, 20 Nov 2016
Tue - Fri: 8pm
Sat: 2pm & 8pm
Tickets starts from $55

Mrs Toh eats Cha Thai

Situated along the bustling Telok Ayer street is a restaurant that wants to bring to diners Thai food that is prepared with loads of passion, lots of pride and bolts of genuine quality. Cha Thai's founder, Leah, believes in using quality ingredients, together with traditional recipes cooked with modern techniques so as to present a different dimension of Thai cuisine. Let's see if they really do stand out this way !

I tried their food a few weeks back and let's take a look what they have to offer .

Appetizers to share

love how they use dropper bottles for the sauces

Crispy Prawn Cake $15
The portion of this serving of prawn cakes is very generous
Food at Cha Thai is meant for sharing !
Dip into the sweet chili sauce.


These are very addictive sticks !
Creamy Crab Roll $15
Love the crab curry dip :D
Personally I like it but price point is
slightly on the high side for this
 Their gravies, sauces and chili are all made from scratch
This is the Lemongrass prawn salad $28
Love that thick gravy..

 Saute Kai Lan with Roasted Pork $16
not the most healthy veggie dish ..
but surely one of the tastiest....with those roasted sio bak! 

This Simmered Pork $22
has been cooked for hours !
Tender and well braised , you need a bowl of rice to go with it 


Premium Giant Tiger Prawns Claypot Glass Noodles $159
this is great for sharing ! 
It may be slightly on the high end price wise, but you can 
be assured that it is quality food that you are getting 
* prawns were tad overcooked that evening thou but still 
they were crunchy and good *

Tom Yum Vegetarian Dumplings $18
Great if you are a spicy food lover :)



Most people just wanna eat the usual mango sticky rice as dessert, 
but really, there are more Thai desserts than just that.. 

One of the nicer toast I have tried !
Charcoal crispy toast with pandan dip. 
Very legit, very good. Love that crispy crunch of the toast
Comes in easy to eat cube sizes 

If cold dessert is your thing , then you gotta try the 
Emerald Jade (green ruby) $8
or if you like , the Red ruby
Top it up with those tiny mango cubes :) 

Milo Dinosaur $8
I personally wouldn't recom. this
It melts and kinda becomes like drinking
cold milo.. just doesn't do it for me. 

Overall, I think Cha Thai is a decent place for a get together
with friends, enjoy good quality Thai food. The accessibility is a plus point
being near to Chinatown as well as the CBD area.

Early birthday celebration at Mitzo Weekend Brunch

July has always been one of my favorite months.The reason is quite simple..and I have to thank my family and friends who indulges in me ! As with previous years, I will be eating my way from mid July to mid August as a way to commemorate my birthday !

Here's the first of a few birthday meals. I'm grateful and happy to have a bunch of foodies to count on as friends . It was Sunday well spent as we laughed and ate till we burst at Mitzo's new Weekend Brunch. Thanks for the early birthday celebration !!

Upon arriving at Mitzo, we were shown to our table for 5 to which we actually swapped for with another table just right next to the window. However, it proved to be not the best choice ( but great for our photo taking LOL ) as it seems we have been transported to the desert of the whole restaurant. 

Apart from the heat, other aspect of the restaurant is awesome. Service staff is efficient and polite. The decor of this place has left a deep impression on me . I love how modern this Chinese restaurant is and the clever use of prism and mirrors and reflection of the colorful panels 

The Place

hehehe our reflection

Come night time, this sexy place is transformed 
into a chill out bar. 

the table nx to the glass window was where we were seated 

The Food 

Mitzo recently introduced the  Weekend Brunch ( $68++ per pax)  which is only available on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. It is a dimsum extravaganza that show cases over 40 selections of dim sum, wok dishes and supreme seafood delicacies comprising of Bamboo Clam, Live Lobster and Abalone dish.

 We DID NOT try all 40 of the dishes of coz ...that would be insane hhahaa.What we did was ordered certain recommended items and re- ordered those we tried and liked :)


We started off our meal with the a wholesome bowl of  winter melon soup . It's sweet and it warmed our hearts and tummies ~

Let me show you the Supreme Seafood selection first. Each person is able to choose an item from the 3 catogory - Live Lobster, Bamboo Clam and Abalone .

 Top: Spicy Chili Lobster served with buns ( each half of a lobster is one serving )
Below left :  Baked lobster with creamy lemon sauce and cheese
Below right : Bamboo clams with preserved veg and minced garlic

Here's one of my personal fav.
Abalone Tuffles Rice
 I like how each mouthful of the rice is filled with the truffle's aroma


Mitzo Special BBQ Pork
One of the better Char Siew I have eaten !
Sweet caramelized crystals added a different
texture to the meat.  We like it so much that we had a 2nd helping


Such pretty Royal shrimp dumplings!
The skin is very thin and transparent !
How elegant they look..topped with caviar

Custard Moon Buns
(Liu sha buns ) Very pretty with the golden
crescents. It's a pity that the salted egg yolk sauce
is too watery. Nothing much to rave about .

Have you tried Steamed Bacon?
This is the Steamed Bacon with gold seafood sauce

Who would have thought snails could be so cute !!? I like these!
Escargots with melting cheese encased in this snail shaped puffs !
It resembled bunnies at certain angles hahah ..
Just a overview of some of the items we had :)

For foodies who likes deep fried dim sums
like these Deep Fried Shrimp Dumplings
and  Black Pepper Cod Fish Dumplings

Wok Dishes

For meat lovers, there is the popular Taiwanese dish
Braised Truffles Pork Ball
The Chinese name for this dish is kinda cute

These Black pepper beef cubes
were quite tasty and tender !

Melon Pork Ribs soup 


There are 5 desserts to eat to your heart's content
Do not hesitant to order all of them !
Here are the 3 cold desserts
Aloe Vera with Osmanthus jelly
Double-boiled longan treasure tea 
 Chilled mango cream with sago and pomelo topping
 Very refreshing and thirst quenchin!
We would have ordered them first should we know
that they tasted so good ! Some of us had two of each !


I could have pop a few of these

Deep-fried chocolate liquer dumpling
if not for the fact that I was already
200% full by this time!
These balls filled with chocolate liquer are quite the bomb!!
Usually these deep fried babies are filled with either peanuts n
mung bean paste but over here, they gave it a twist !
Love this !

These mini size Hokkaido Milk Cheese Tarts
are hot items on the menu. The server was so nice to
give us a few plates of these ! Eat it while it is hot !

My bunch of foodie friends were really nice !
They got the staff to present to me these Longevity buns 
for my early birthday celebration!

Never too old to celebrate birthdays !

Here's one with me and Alex :)
There are more birthday meals to come ! Watch this space and see what I have been eating ! Just don't ask me how old am I ! LOL!

Snippets of The Tohs in Europe

In an blink of an eye we have somehow progressed on this year we have arrived at the end of June already ! A month ago, we were touring parts of Europe and enjoying the cool weather and now we are back in the hot arms of our sunny island :(

Yes, the Tohs travelled across to another part of the world that they have not ventured before. We joined a 13 days group tour organised by ASA Travel agency ( there are reasons why we chose tour grp instead of free and easy ) .

We covered quite a number of must see tourist attractions and I wish we had more time. It's a pity but I know we will be back to some of these cities and countries again ! No more tour group travel anymore for us !

Gonna share some photos from our trip :)

Vatican city 

Trevi fountain

Leaning tower of Pisa

Some of the food items we ate
Didn't had the chance to wander away too far
since we are in a group tour.. 

Asian food in Paris

dessert in town

Waffles with loads of strawberries and cream !
We had this in Brussels

Work is a frenzy lately ! Catch you later !
