Tony invited me as his date for the Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge event at Le Marquee, Palace of the Golden Horses on 9th of April. Using Tony's Blackberry GPS, we got lost a little but arrived safely. The theme was classic black or chic gold for the outfits. Black isn't exactly my colour but had a piece or two in my wardrobe so I wore a dress with the combination of both :)
Pins for guys and necklaces for ladies .
Met up with the rest of the bloggers and got ourselves a table.
With Suresh and Tony.
Shii Teck and Jun Fook
Isaac and Jessy
Bumped into a few of my friends too.
Wen Bing and Wen Jun
Shantee and Jay Dee
It was a great night with great music and meeting new people. Partied all night and danced away~

Okay, so now on my 2nd day in Singapore. Most pics are arranged in collage form because there will be too many pictures! You can view the individual shots from my Facebook.
Woke up at 10am and had dim sum for breakfast in Geylang. Then, off we go to Little India as we're moving to another hotel! We wanted to stay at a backpacking hotel called The Inn Crowd but it was fully booked, so we walked to the next street and settled for Checkers Inn which is something like a boutique backpackers hotel. Super awesome!
Check out the lobby area :) They have really interesting stuff hanging on the ceiling. It costs about 30SGD per night. It's a really cosy place!
Some of us waiting during check in. The good thing about Checkers Inn is that they have seperate dorms for male and female. If you are with a bunch of friends, get the mix dorm which can fit up to 10 person :)
Our dorm! They provide us with lockers :) With 8 of us inside, kinda pity the Korean couple who were assigned to our dorm because we are a noisy bunch. opps. Oh, and that gorgeous Gibson electric guitar is Jared's new toy!
Settled in at Checkers Inn with shower and nap. Went to Esplanade again in the evening. Yes, they are performing for 2 days :)
Walked in Esplanade and there was some exhibition thing going on.
One Upon A Time There Was A Sausage Named Bob preparing for their performance.
Show starts at 7.30pm
Car Crash Hearts
Max Brenner. woot! The place that serves the most sinful chocolate desserts~
They have smooties and also other chocolate drinks :)
Waffles *drools* Too bad they don't have a branch in Msia!
Mel brought us up to the rooftop and the view is spectacular. They have a rooftop garden and a pub for you to enjoy the view too :)
After their performance, we went to Clarke Quay for drinking session. Walked around Clarke Quay and finally decided to settle at Clinic. As the name goes, the concept is also very clinic/hospital like where you have the operation lights, wheelchairs etc. Too bad the table with the wheelchair was packed, it'd be hell lotsa fun :P

Been so busy with Uni lately that I've no time to update my blog. Traveled to Singapore with a bunch of friends during early March as they were having their band showcase there. Was hired by my friend's band, Once Upon A Time There Was A Sausage Named Bob to be their photographer during their performances. It was a 3 days 2 nights stay, a short one for me because I had classes on weekdays. The rest stayed back longer.
If I'm not mistaken, the last time I've traveled to Singapore is when I was 12 for my final year school trip. Can't remember much but Singapore has definitely changed a lot. Got to explore the other side of Singapore as the last trip was at Sentosa, but this time we stayed in the town area. This would be my third time in Singapore.
4th March 2011
Headed to the airport with Shogo via KL Sentral in the afternoon. Our flight was a 3pm and the rest my friends were already in Singapore a day earlier. I had class on the previous day and on the flight day itself, bummer.
AirAsia. The flight was surprisingly fast. It was just buckle seat, emergency briefing, filling in the embarkation forms and next thing you know you're already in Singapore!
Headed to Geylang where the hotel was located. Met up with the rest and then we had early dinner.
Singapore Flyer - on the way to Esplanade After getting ready, all of us took the cab and headed to Esplanade in the evening. The stage was located at The Waterfront where all are bands performing are from KL.
The buildings surrounding The Waterfront area. Reminds me of HK. The event started at 7.30pm. Had some time to spare as we reached ahead of schedule, so I went around taking pictures.
You can get a great view of Marina Bay from here. The view is just magnificent!
Decorations at the outdoor area.
The first band to perform was EVE.
BOB getting ready for their performance at 9pm.
Finally they're starting :)
Estee - Lead vocals
Jared and Anthony - Guitar
Chen - Bass, JC - Drums
Next up was Car Crash Hearts.
After a long day, I was scheduled to meet up with 2 Singaporean bloggers which I've gotten to know them from Innit. Darran and Kelvin. Was excited to meet them and they came over to Esplanade after their work n stuff to meet me there as the rest of my friends were heading to party at The Butter Factory. Shortly after, we decided to head to Thomson Road for a yamcha session but the place they chose was closing already. So we headed off to Roti Prata House in Thomson as well.
Had a great chat with them and they're really friendly n fun people :) Thank you Darran for sending me back to my hotel even though u don't know the location. Really appreciate it :) Too bad my schedule in Singapore was tight and theirs was equally busy as well so we couldn't hang out more. Anyway, it was great meeting both of you and hopefully you guys will come down to Msia soon and meet the gang of bloggers!
