Today, I am going to show you a place in London where you can meet with a lot of superstars and famous people from many different field of expertise. This is another paid attraction, and in fact, they have a lot of outlets all over the world. But this one in London is their original site, so it is definitely more prestigious to visit here.
Today, I am going to show you Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London.
Actually, there is nothing much to describe about this place at all. This is a wax museum where you can find wax life sized wax figures of many famous people. And they all look very real. I’ve seen some of the photos my friends took in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, they didn’t seem as real as the figures I have seen in Madame Tussauds London.
And, you know how we got a good deal with the London Eye thanks to Iceland supermarket? We got the same [Buy 1 Free 1] for Madame Tussauds too, on a different grocery day. So instead of £25, we each paid only £12.50 for the tickets. Awesome!
Without wasting more of your time, let’s dive in and overwhelm you with lots and lots of superstars and famous people…
Crap… I think we should move on from actresses, less I show you even more
horny-faced incriminating photos.
Yeah, I already knew about Jamie Oliver back in 2007. Not many Malaysians knew of him back then. Certainly none of my friends knew him. But they saw a lot of other tourists taking pictures with him, so they kind of understood that he is famous.
Let’s move away from TV and big screens, and move on to sports…
What? You thought
Ronalfatto Ronaldo was the most famous Brazilian footballer of all times? Pfft… he’s not even close. Anyway, this was how Pele looked like as a teenager. Today he is just an old man who makes wrong predictions 100% of the time. You can get instant success in football betting by always betting against his predictions.
I am actually showing you the photos in the order of when I saw them. We started with all the famous people of the showbiz industry, and then we moved on to all the sports personality. After all those, is a section with all the dan lain-lain (others) categories.
In case you do not know who King Henry VIII was, not a big deal. He was merely the king who successfully separated the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church. At that time, most people thought he did so because of a woman, he wanted to divorce his wife to marry another woman, but the church did not allow it. So he gave them the finger, so to speak. But more recently, scholars believe he did so out of financial reasons. You see, he was a lavish spender and brought England to the brink of bankruptcy. The Roman churches owned most of the land and resources, and he wanted those resources for himself. So he kicked the Roman church out.
Does such behavior not remind you of a certain someone us Malaysians are dealing with currently?
Anyway, let’s move on…
All 11 of us (10 of us in the picture and the one holding the camera here) had tonnes of fun touring this wax museum. I did not regret paying to enter this place. It was totally worth every ££ I paid.
Oh yeah, I shall end this blog post with a photo with Madame Tussaud herself, the original maestro who started all these wax figure magnificence. Truly, she is a legend all by herself!
