Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

On the first day of our Hong Kong trip, we visited Madame Tussauds and The Peak.

I've been to The Peak many times but have never gone to Madame Tussauds. I'm not sure why, but I've always imagined it to be small and probably not quite worth the visit. I've been so wrong. Madame Tussauds Hong Kong houses over 100 celebrity wax figurines! I had so much fun taking silly pictures with the figurines.

The entire place is split into the following themes:

-  Hong Kong Glamour,
- Historical and National Heroes,
- TV Studio,
- World Premiere featuring movie stars from early black and white Hollywood era,
- The Champions featuring sporting heroes,
- Authentic History that gives you a peek of what goes behind the making of  a wax figurine,
- Music icons; and
- Fantasy Kingdom that is newly expanded with different superheroes and characters.

A group shot before we boarded the tram that was going to take us up to The Peak and Madame Tussauds. The night city view on the way up is really beautiful!


Oh hi, just hanging with Brangelina. They are the first few figures that you'll see upon entering Madame Tussauds.

Trying to look very important whilst hanging with Barack Obama in his office at the Historical and National Heroes room.

Us all at the TV Studio area with host Sandra Ng. This is a replica of the TV talk show, Sparkling Club.

Oh nothing much, just having tea with the beautiful Audrey Hepburn at the World Premiere room. I can't focus on my tea. She's gorgeous!

An OOTD shot, Wing Chun style with Donnie Yen. I love these Nike sneakers that I got from Tokyo!

In this Authentic History zone, you'll see the step by step production process of how Donnie Yen's wax figure was made. From the very beginning of measuring size, sculpting, moulding to the final stage of colouring.

 Hanging with the Beatles at the Music Icons zone. I grew up listening to their songs. What's your favourite Beatles tune?

Pretending I'm cool and chic like Lady Gaga.


Tired of hanging with celebrities and icons, I suddenly find myself part of a classical painting. Trying my best to fit right in!


And, The Hulk got me at the Fantasy Kingdom zone! This newly expanded room houses Marcel Superheroes Iron Man, Wolverine, Monkey King, Doraemon and...

Spiderman! I was trying to re-enect that popular kissing scene between Spiderman and Mary Jane. If only Spiderman was hanging upside down too!


   

Went trigger happy taking selfies with all my favourite celebrities and icons!


This is not quite about Madame Tussauds, but we went to Tsui Wah Cafe before heading up to The Peak and these 2 dishes are so good! You've got to try this condensed milk toast and chicken wings when you're in Hong Kong. I'm salivating already just looking at my pictures.
