Yes Prime Minister****one of the UK’s most popular TV series ever is now an award-winning stage play is a bitingly funny satire of British politics at work. At the Raffles Jubilee Hall Theatre, an appropriate venue for this brilliantly performed play. Prime Minister Jim Hacker and his Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby deal with the thorny issue of their house guest, the Kumranistani Oil Minister, who wants a wild party at the PM’s residence at Chequers, in exchange for a billion dollar oil contract!

Halia at Raffles Hotel***not much to write home about. So-so food, service with a beautiful smile but lost in translation somewhere in Korea! Maybe one should order their recommended dishes but did not feel like meat!

Sun: appreciations to Clem for getting me to go to these plays over the weekend, otherwise would have been too lazy! Enjoy them thoroughly and time well spent in good company. Today has been just wet wet wet and pleasant to doze zzzz after a lovely wet late-morning walk 🙂

The rains have stopped and it turned into a beautiful  evening. Belated Mother’s Day Celebrations with the Guest of Honour ESM Goh Chok Tong/Grassroots Adviser for MP and live-music blasting downstairs. Looks like I will have to stay awake until it is over, thank goodness for all the afternoon naps today 🙂 🙂

Here in his world she was trapped in an intolerable corner, which seemed to grow tighter and tighter each year… she, too, could become someone else. Eventually. Or she’d told herself all these years… but in the end he didn’t love her enough to fight for her – Nicole Mones/Lost in Translation
