My Visits to Madame Tussaud’s in Bangkok and NYC

I had always wanted to visit Madame Tussaud’s at London yet I did not get a chance to. The good thing is: Madame Tussaud’s has so many branches worldwide now. Therefore, I went to the Tussaud’s at Bangkok for the very first time in 2012. Here are some of the pictures:

I think I have a para-social relationship with Oprah. I never used to miss the Oprah Show when it used to be telecast during weekends at my home country.

This has always been a dream to appear as a guest at Oprah Show. Well, if not in reality, one can click a picture like being interviewed by none other than Oprah Winfrey and frame this photo in his/her living!

I am with the replica statue of how Einstein would have looked like in the real life! My cousin who was a doctorate and post-doctorate from Princeton was inspired to study Princeton University since it was Albert Einstein’s school!

I am inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven’s inspiring compositions and when I read his biography, I really feel very sad as his hearing power was compromised at an early age of his life. The cause of his ailment was unknown — most probably it was an autoimmune disorder. Ringing in his ear made it difficult for him to hear music. I feel so sad when I try to imagine his situation. I also try to put myself in his shoes as to why he used to immerse his head in cold water to stay awake. Although living with the challenge of deafness made him think about suicide, yet he made a resolution to continue living for and through his art.

The Bangkok museum also had a replica of Oval Office, which was interesting! Once I went to the Madame Tussaud’s at NYC last year, I also got to pose with the Obamas once again!

In the museum at New York City, I saw Oprah once more.

I admire Ben Franklin a lot and that’s why I posed with him and sat on the mock set up of his desk there. Benjamin Franklin had a beautiful handwriting! His handwriting was once featured in one of the Advertising texts written by Arens where it had a vignette on early days of advertising.

Here is Marilyn Monroe’s statue in her classic pose wearing the ’White Ivory Cocktail Dress’ in Manhattan subway scene in the film ’Seven Year Itch’ !

I listen to a lot of old-time songs since my very childhood and The Beatles is my most favorite. Here in the Tussaud’s museum, all of the statues of this pop group seemed a ditto copy except the statue of Ringo Star (which was sitting beside John Lenon’s).

I have been a fan of Michael Jackson since I was in school. I feel really sad however of his early demise all on a sudden!

I am with the Spice Girls’ statues below. In my high school days I used to listen to their upbeat music and do my sums!

I remember, when I was a toddler, I got to know about the legendary boxer Mohammad Ali. Bangladesh had a huge fan following of the legend at that time. I believe this fame of his has not waned at all even till now at least my home country. There was also a song dedicated to the legend. When I was a child, I used to sing, “Tumi Mohammad Ali!…” (meaning ’You are Mohammad Ali!…’)

image

I saw Tyra Banks for the very first time in one of the Oprah Shows. This ’Black Beauty’ is one of the most attractive fashion models I have ever seen!

Shelly made me pose with the statue of George Clooney in the next picture:

When I was in school, I used to watch the television show ’Mork and Mindy’ where Robin Williams was the lead character. This picture below with his statue was clicked in May 2014. At that time, I had no idea that he would leave us so soon! Maybe his complications with Parkinsons were really terrible that he did not want to live anymore! Nonetheless, I am no one to judge yet having a little experience with Multiple Sclerosis I can tell that the option of suicide may not be a great idea since one never knows for sure if s/he will get salvation in the afterlife from the pangs of day to day sufferings of this world!
