Crazy Rich Asians. A hit movie that shines the spotlight on the “lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” in Singapore. We will show you the filming locations and play out a key scene from the movie with your participation.
We start at CHIJMES, a white gothic-style chapel where Araminta and Colin’s wedding took place. Then it is on to Singapore’s “Beverly Hills”, where we reveal the eye-popping values of the multi-million dollar homes belonging to “crazy rich” locals, and make a photo stop at Peik Lin’s expansive mansion in Cluny Park.
Visit Newton Circus Food Centre, which boasts three hawker stalls listed in the Michelin guide. Here, both tourists and locals, rich or otherwise, are spoilt for choice with the plethora of unique flavours and tantalising delights. Eat like a local and learn the “Chope” culture, where seats are “reserved” with tissue packets or other personal items!
Our next stop is Ann Siang Hill, home to numerous clan associations. Here we stroll down the street where Eleanor made her way to meet Rachel at the Mahjong parlour. We will also visit Bukit Pasoh Road where Rachel had a heart-to-heart talk with Peik Lin. Just down the street is Singapore’s very first millionaire’s club, where you will be regaled by stories of outstanding business leaders and pioneers of Singapore’s Chinese community in the Pioneers’ Memorial Hall.
Leaving the best for last, we finish with a Mahjong 101 session in a clan association hall. Not only will you get a crash course on the Mahjong basics, you will also learn the significance of the moves made during Eleanor and Rachel’s showdown at the Mahjong Parlour, while you sip tea and savour Nonya kueh.
