F1 Rocks Singapore really rocks!


I had a blast at F1 Rocks Singapore. No Doubt and Beyonce were amazing! Gwen Stefani and her band mates were at their rocking best and Beyonce - what a diva and... what a voice!


Videos of Beyonce and No Doubt below but first here's a pic of me with the LG Viewty phone that I was given by LG to try out at the concert. Not a bad phone, really. The 8 megapixel camera which comes with a reasonable flash is really good but the lack of zoom is a drawback if you're going to use it to take photos or videos at concerts.

No Doubt!

Beyonce! I like the crotch grabbing part.

Oh btw, did you know that Gwen Stefani is related to Singaporeans? She claims she's a relative because her husband's stepmom is Malaysian. LOL. Watch the video above.

Exclusive E! Event: I.Z. Reloaded at the red carpet!

Yesterday, I went to the super exclusive E! (Entertainment Channel) Asia's Red Carpet Event at The Prime Society. It was the first time ever that E! rolled out a red carpet in Singapore and last night was definitely an A-lister party with lots of celebrities like Eunice Olsen, one half of twins May & Choy, Benedict Goh, Allan Wu, Irene Ang, Stephanie Carrington, Jaymee Ong, Max Loong, Jimmy T and many more attending. Here are some pics!

Fangirls and fanboys waiting to catch the stars arriving at the red carpet.

And yes, I was on the red carpet too posing for the cameras. Felt like a star for a few seconds. LOL.

There were lots of pretty people at the party.

The lovely Stephanie Carrington. She's hot!!!

No idea who this lady is but I'll have both Stephanie and her please.

May or Choy? I'm not sure.

No red carpet event will be complete without nice food and drinks. The snacks they served were ok but the wine was good and I had lots of it.

Ok. Maybe a little too much.

Enjoy this video taken at the event. See if you can spot the celebs. You can catch E! Entertainment on Starhub Channel 80.
