Universal Music Malaysia 'fly us like a G6' to SINGAPORE!!!

Just as reality kicks on what has happened this week (meeting with MEL B & EPF Masters Footballers), received a call on Tuesday night exactly about 10pm.  was puzzled as Michele Ng of Universal Music Malaysia announced that  was the Grand Prize winner for the Far East Movement( FEM) slogan contest from their website. I was the one delighted as I knew by then we are on our way to Singapore for the Wired Tour concert by FEM. So who are they (to some that still haven't heard the song invading all the radio wave "Like a G6"--where have you been??) ?

The Far East Movement is a rapping, songwriting, and music event producing group formed in 2003 in Los Angeles, California, consisting of Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman. They put together the first multicultural live music event in Koreatown, LA to benefit a drug rehabilitation center in the their community called "Movementality".These rappers from LA are ready to take on Singapore on their first ever Asia tour! So put your hands up!

Well, back to the call..after some clarifications, we decided to bring Joshua along as it was the school holiday and we almost wanted to buy the tickets to Singapore last Saturday during the MATTA fair. Well...good things happens when we least expected. Wednesday was pretty hectic for both B and Joshua. Passport application & to purchase Aeroline coach ticket that are selling fast as we are scheduled to head to Singapore this Thursday itself at 6am.
I didn’t sleep the night before coz i worried i cant wake up on time and yeah i’m pretty excited too. Ehehehe.So at 530am, we arrived at Corus Hotel, met Michele and Alycia ,the main P-I-C from Universal Music Malaysia (UMM). Really cool staff of UMM. The journey was pleasant as it took about 5 hours with food on board. Seats are comfortable and spacious, seated at the upper deck with lower deck are the ‘lounge’ area.

So at 11am sharp, we reached at Harbour Front, Centre Singapore. Transferred  by cab and finally we arrived at Sentosa Island. We will be staying at Siloso Beach Resort where it cost about $220 (promotion rate) and $270(peak) for Deluxe Room. The best part was it's fully sponsored by UMM, SingTel & Blackberry which includes Aeroline coach (return) , transfer, accommodation with breakfast, FEM access tickets at Wave House  (Siloso Beach) and maybe..hopefully hv the chance for meet and greet (M&G) session with the 4 members of FEM for 2. It is still under pending for approval. So fingers crossed. Upon check in, it was free and easy till 5pm.

Love the swimming pool from this view..gonna explore them before later
The journey of my travels started with a single step

MERLION--hear it ROarrrr
So without wasting any time, after chucked in our bags in the room, we took the free ride Sentosa express to Universal Studios Singapore (USS)! Anyway USS is slightly smaller than the one we visited in Japan but the colourful candy shop keeps us all in jolly mood. Before that we took this opportunity to check out the Merlion statue that was like more than 15 storeys high.

Beware of candy dropping
After all that, our stomach started to grumbling...so we took the MRT from Vivo City and heading to Little India. We settled for late lunch at Apollo Banana Leaf. Satisfyingly delicious. Then, walking around with a full stomach seems like pinching us to dreamy land as 3 of us looks like sleepyhead walking around there...hahaha. Almost 4pm, so we planned to head back to Sentosa.

The picture speaks for itself
Yummy with a portion of rice
aikssss....bewareee
 I really wanted to go to Marina Bay Sands as its one of the iconic building at this moment in Singapore but due to time constraint, i might have to let go this thought of mine today..perhaps next visit.sigh...

Then  received an sms, stating that they managed to arrange for the meet & greet and that we need to be at the lobby by 430 pm. Gulp..we were rushing like mad cow..oooo...can we make it on time??? stay tune on my next blog post...
