Here's a timeline of what happened yesterday, November 21.

5.30pm: Universal Music Singapore delivers the Guns N' Roses Chinese Democracy album to me - the first person in Singapore to get the album! It is only available in stores on November 22 after 6pm.

6.00pm: Meet other bloggers at the lobby of Fairmont hotel to wait for our limosines to fetch us to Scarlet hotel for a blogger event (not related to the Chinese Democracy Listening Party).

10.00pm: Event ends and I get the suite at Scarlet Hotel for the night.

10.45pm to 2.00am: A total of 56 invited guests and friends become the first people in Singapore to listen to Chinese Democracy at the Pre-Launch Listening Private Party hosted by me.

In all, I received an incredible 159 requests for invites to the party. I'm extremely sorry that I couldn't invite everyone because the suite has a limited capacity.



I would like to thank everyone who wrote in for invites, my friends and the 56 that showed up at my private party, the bloggers who stayed behind after the previous event, the Scarlet hotel technician for showing up two times during the night because of power failure and a mysterious burning smell in the room, Axl Rose for making such a brilliant album and Universal Music Singapore for the support and the CD!

It was an amazing night and now I can really look forward to growing old and tell my grandchildren the story of how I helped Guns N Roses launch Chinese Democracy in Singapore. Purrrrfect! Oh, and thanks for all your birthday wishes and pressies! Will post more photos but here is the first batch.
