Never in a gazillion years I would have thought of traveling across a border just to experience a night of partying. Plus, I'm not much of a trance person anymore but as the complimentary tickets were given to Point8cam and I by Advertlets, why would we say no to another great getaway with great company, right?
It was all a rush, and I was not in the mood to care about accommodation and transport so I just tweeted out that he and I need a place to bunk our bags and all and guess what, his friend replied =)
Thanks John, you were a great company. Anything goes during this trip, including my decision to actually just drive down, thanks to fully booked coach tickets -_-"
But I think driving down was one of the best decisions, although I was driving both trips back and forth. On that Saturday itself, was driving from 10am to 7pm from home to Singapore 0_o
Excuse my sans makeup face, I couldn't be bothered haha especially driving a bunch of noisy, funny loons across to another country =P
Driving in Singapore ain't hard. You just need a trusty GPS (try not to use Garmin though, they kinda suck in Sg), your car registration, and buy an autopass at the border immigration counter when you enter. Simple! And there I was, thinking it was gonna be hard. The only thing I dislike there was the hook turns. Not sure what it is? Google. I still can't get used to it T_T
Once I dropped the boys at the Harbourfront where they met up with the rest of the bloggers, we went to pick up John at the hotel. Mandarin Orchard, just above Mandarin Gallery next to Takashimaya. So easy to find food, ice-cream in bread and all sorts of things. We then decided to just drive into Sentosa, rather than wait for the MRT to open til 6am in the morning. We can leave, or sleep in the car, anytime we want.
The only thing that I didn't like about the event was that it was filled to the brim with rowdy, drunk, and uneducated monkeys or kampungan for the Malays. I'm not saying that all Malays are kampung but these are the annoying ones that won't stop howling "YYEEEAAHHH PARRTTAAYYYY" in the bus, while queuing for the bus, at the beach etc -_-'
Or the Gwai Lo, who just simply push people around to make their way through. One girl, nearly got one sucker punch on her nose from me. I was walking in front of her while point8cam was holding my hand making sure I won't get swept away in the pushing crowd. She broke off the chain by pulling our hands apart. What.A.Bit*h.
However, crowd issues aside, it was said that the lineup this year would be epic, to commemorate Zoukout's 10th year anniversary. Big names such as the legendary Tiesto, the party starter David Guetta,the hip hop maestro Jazzy Jeff, and others such as Afrojack, Dubfire and so on was on the decks at different stages throughout the night til dawn.
Somehow, I wished the stage could have been bigger, or maybe the space, like in Genting. People were pushing each other like in the mosh pit and it was not getting funny as the crowd gets to rowdy. I was so ready to give and receive two flying kicks already by that time haha
We did not enter til Tiesto was on, seeing the ants of people heading into the beach area. We ended up buying drinks from 7-eleven at the train station, and sitting on the floor underneath the station and just chilling and talking. It was hot, then it rained then it stopped, and we were still sitting there haha oh and the queue to the toilet was.....I saw some "casualties" too, in the form of drunk, sleeping girls -_-"
Dem. Fun thing apart from the main DJs spinning was there was massage areas to soothe the aching feet (although the combo of sand and massage oil didn't strike my interest) and also....WAVE POOLS! If I knew earlier, I would've brought spare clothing. I was not ready to actually get wet =(
And here are some photos I got with the GF-1. Sorry couldn't zoom in, I only have a pancake (prime) lens -_-"
I think we gave out due to hunger, instead of hungover hahaha
left the place, in search of food, or at least the buns we left in the car and went back to the hotel to sleep zzzzz
Next day, since we were just next to Takashimaya S.C, it was somehow compulsory to drop by at ToriQ, my fave Yakitori kiosk, and also MOS Burger, since point8cam was craving for some yakiniku lovin.
This time, since his tastebuds were much better compared to our last visit to MOS Burger, I asked him to order the frozen strawberries. Cold, and sweet, just the way he likes it haha
We were just going around Orchard, to meet up with the person point8cam was supposed to, and bumped into old uni mates, Jeremy and Sidharta. OUT OF ALL PLACES! And I didn't even bump into people at all at Zoukout!
Called the rest of the bloggers for dinner at Hooters, and bumped into more uni mates, Zen, Julian, Daryl, Shereen and the rest of the MUSA Lounge kakis.
No trip at hooters would be complete if you don't order their buffalo wings. It's a bang for a buck, SGD9.90 for 10 pieces. Proper food at a reasonable price.
Went back early. Sunday night calls for early retreat to dreamland. So much for a crazy weekend hahah woke up the next day to more foodventures. Brunch at Niwa Sushi at Somerset, just a walk away from Orchard where they have a 4 storey Forever21 store. This japanese chain has good food at cheap prices! The sets below, costs about SGD5-8 each. And TRUST ME, we couldn't even finish it haha
Oh, and we wanted to try the Sup Tulang Merah so I drove the boys there and boy, it was fattening. Located around the Bugis area, it's not that easy to find although I bet that you foodhunters would REALLY go your way through for this
I guess that concludes our weekend trip this time. Not sure whether there's gonna a video but will let you guys know if there's one. Now go pester point8cam for it! haha
Instead, he went on a photo frenzy!
