All At Once The Crowd Begins to Sing, Sometimes The Hardest Thing is The Right Thing All The Same
Posted on: 25th of April 2010 | Under: Entertainment

The main reason why I maintain this blog is to be able to jot down experiences that, a few years down the road, I would still love to look back on and remember. One event that’s quite note-worthy was watching The Fray live at Timbre Rock & Roots last month.

The music festival was held at the F1 tracks at Marina Promenade, with the breathtaking view of the Singapore Flyer as its backdrop.

The whole festival started as early as five in the afternoon, but knowing that The Fray was scheduled to play last, we arrived at seven. The open-air setting of the festival made the wait quite enjoyable. Other bands played, and we enjoyed their tunes as we sat ourselves down on the ground (or more technically, the F1 pit) and sipped our beers with the rest of the crowd.

Just before The Fray went on, we managed to station ourselves right behind the metal barricades towards the left of the stage. We didn’t have a central view of the whole performance (the reason why I didn’t get to take photos of some of the band members), but our spot, being right in front of the crowd, gave us a pretty clear visual of the concert. Plus, our location gave me a thirty-second close encounter with Isaac Slade (the band’s singer) when, before ending their set, he walked down the stage and stood on the metal barricade right in front of me!

Our Families in Singapore
Posted on: 15th of March 2010 | Under: Life & Love

Having our Registration of Marriage in Singapore was the perfect excuse for our families to fly in and spend time with us. Several days of bouncing from one place to another was physically tiring, but we enjoyed every minute of it. It was nice taking everyone around for some food tripping and a whole lot shopping.

We Did It!
Posted on: 22nd of February 2010 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

After six years and four months, we finally got married last February 17, 2010! :)

Well, it’s not the church wedding yet (that’s scheduled for the first part of 2011), but our Registration of Marriage in Singapore. Similar to a Civil Wedding, the whole ceremony was quite short and simple. However, the entire family (except for JR‘s younger brother) flew in, so it turned out to be quite a nice celebration nevertheless.

My sister did my makeup:

I sat in front of our bedroom window and placed a portable mirror so I could see the makeup application progress. =P

Ion Orchard on HDR

Finally got around to trying HDR. I was out shopping a few days ago when I spotted the pretty view of the new Ion Orchard. Decided to take shots of it and created this HDR image when I got home:
