Past Event: Hardstyle Climax @ Snow City (Singapore)

So on June 19th 2009 i was invited to play as a guest dj in "Hardstyle Climax" in Snow City Singapore (Jurong)
The event went really well, and apparently these kind of events (hard dance and shuffling themed) is kinda rare in singapore. Occasionally we have International DJs like YOJI and Kutski and but other than that the local hard dance scene is pretty non-existant (This is what im working on at the moment actually! haha!)
But i was glad to see the event went absolutely well, sponsored by snow city and MAGMUG.COM it was really good to see this kind of event in Singapore and im very certain that there will be loads more coming up~
BTW Congrats to the 1st winner JB ROCKAs all the way from malaysia for winning, and also all the participants who were on the comp, u guys all rock!
check out some videos on youtube, type in Hardstyle Climax and you'll see some videos the shufflers took during the event :)

R.I.P. Michael Jackson... OMG IT REALLY HAPPENED??

About two days ago i first heard the news that the KING OF POP, michael jackson recently passed away, aged 50. My initial response was "Whoa! what a cruel joke!" I really thought it
was just a hoax, i thought "nah it couldnt happen".

And then came more news, i opened up my mozilla firefox and the home page (i set yahoo at my home page) had the news all over. I was like WTF? IT REALLY HAPPENED? OH MY GOD!

I used to be a big fan of michael jackson back when i was a kid, "THRILLER" and "BAD" were the first two CASSETTE TAPES i bought (it was 1990 DUDE! no CDs or CDRs back then!)
i used to listen to them on my WALKMAN TAPE while riding my bicycle after school
i totally forgot about him later on tho, but i will always remember those two albums in my head, it brings me a lot of childhood memories lolz! And who can ever forget the NO GRAVITY LEAN on "smooth criminal"? and the moonwalk? damn those things were hectic back then!

so yeah, when i heard the news i was pretty shocked~
one of the things i always wanted to do since i was a kid was to watch a Michael Jackson CONCERT Live in person sitting on the front row~ i totally forgot about it, but now that it happened, it just strikes me that seems like i will never ever be able to do it, as he has just passed away

no more new albums, no more live tours, no more mj? oh my god it really happened


and funny enough it happened exactly one week after i was able to finish EXPERT MODE of "beat it" on Guitar Hero: World Tour for Wii...

R.I.P. Michael

you were an icon in music, i dont care what they say about you or the allegations, i totally respect you as a musician and for your talent
always have and always will!

Welcome to... Singapore?

So here i am for the past few months of my life, in the nice sunny city of Singapore!

Well since i left sydney in late 2008, that's where i've been most of the time (other than indonesia or taiwan actually

Well... my family relocated to singapore after i moved to australia a long time ago, so i cant say im very familiar with singapore at all, in fact i didnt know anything much bout singapore till i actually moved here!

Ah well, so here's what i find interesting about singapore:

-It's an ENGLISH speaking country! (sort of~!) well unlike in taiwan where you are likely to get lost without speaking the local language, in Singapore you'll do just fine~

-The local food! NASI LEMAK, ROTI PRATA, and of course CHICKEN CHOP~ to be honest i've never heard of CHICKEN CHOP before i got here... so what is it? well basically its chicken fillet on a steak sauce, pretty good stuff actually hahaha

-the clubs close earlier than it is in australia: In singapore clubs either close at 3am or even way earlier, whats up with that? in sydney we have impulse! 10pmto10am! yay! lolz

-its a very metro city: Its a country of good economy, lots of good shopping spots, very CLEAN and VERY SAFE!

u kno what i think im gonna like it over here~ hahaha

the only thing tho- the air and the humidity, its bloody hot in here!
