Red Carpet Wax Museum has 6 thematic zones such as World Icons, Celebrities, Sport Stars, World Records, All Stars Café and interactive.

Before go up, we are welcome by three pretty ladies and they can nod and said “Welcome” in their own language so don’t be surprise when they are talking. Haha..

Looking back to my pictures, I found out that I am not good in posing because some people can do a fun pose with wax models. Look like I need to learn how to make a good and fun pose. Haha..

In Red Carpet, it has a staff in every section to make sure all the wax models are in good condition. When taking pictures, three of us take by turn so we wish to ask staff to help us to take picture.
