Singapore [Day 1]



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.

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!

3
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!

After a long day, I was scheduled to meet up with 2 Singaporean bloggers which I've gotten to know them from Innit.
24
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!

  4. Nice photos! All without any flash too? So glad to have you in Singapore even though it was for a couple of days. And it was a weird location to have your hotel situated in.
