Yesterday I sat at the Esplanade listening to that song, I became that teenager again...

|The Feel of the Stage before the show|
Its surviving residents ( many moved to brand new HDB like Ang Mo Kio) include Chow Kew Teng and his daughter Bee Lean, who runs a noodle shop on the ground floor of their crumbling shophouse home.
Together with the neighbours, Bee Lian struggles to save her little street. Along the way, she encouters excitement, fear and love...
The actors in the musical include Taufik Batisah ( the 1st Singapore Idol) , Denise Tan (who played Bee Lian), Sebastian Tan, the legendary Rahimah Rahim etc...
For me, the star of the show is Denise Tan. Her duet with her 'father' Lim Yu-Beng was equally touching. They have voices suited for the stage.
Taufik Batisah only shines in his solo when Denise is falling in love with Sebastian. That song has the same feel and during the intro..I thought he was going to sing Me and Mrs Jones..the song that brought him to fame in the Singapore Idol.
Overall, it a heart warming show and I can never forget the line "Fried Rice Paradise, Nasi Goreng very nice..
If I must say, this show is better than the previous Dick Lee's musical..Beauty World
