When in Singapore

Hello, it’s been a while. Sometimes work and laziness just gets the best of us, but I’m back! So what triggered my sudden urge to get this blog running again? The recent news of the Foo Fighters playing in Singapore on Saturday, which I have absolutely zero moolah to spend on. I have high hopes that Dave Grohl will stumble upon this and send me free tickets. Wishful thinking, I know. It got me to retrospect on my not so recent trip to Singapore a few months back for the Coldplay concert. It was my second time in the Lion City, and with its smorgasbord of gastronomic delights, swanky hotels, rooftop bars and pools, I wouldn’t mind coming back again.

Cherry Blossom Festival

Spring has sprung and people are flocking to different parts of the world to catch a glimpse of blooming cherry blossoms or “sakura.” Every year, Washington D.C holds its annual Cherry Blossom Festival when they reach full bloom in early Spring and I had to see what all the fuss was about. Why are people going crazy over these flowers? In an attempt to prove that there was nothing special about it, to my dismay, I was proven wrong. Cherry Blossoms are one of the most beautiful wonders you’ll see in this planet.

Coldplay Fever

The most emotionally charged concert I’ve ever been to. First, you’re dancing, then you’re crying, the next thing you know you’re dancing with tears in your eyes. Well, I guess that’s what’s in store for every Coldplay concert. The band has a way of drowning their melodramatic lyrics with upbeat melodies and vibrant visuals. Truly making every Coldplay concert an, “Adventure of a Lifetime.”
