GS moment kicks in

RVP, Messi grab headlines


RVP scored the winner though he had a quiet night against Manchester City. Now Manchester United have 6 points lead over Manchester City.

Messi beat Gerd Muller's goal by scoring his 86th goal in a year calendar. The last record was back in 1972. He is definitely a phenomenal player and how I wish he plays for an English club before he retires.


ZO rocked the weekend!!


RA saysWhat a weekend!!! I managed to cover the Red Bull Rookies event last Saturday, caught a bit of Thirst at Sepang then flew back to Singapore in time for Zoukout event at Siloso beach and it was a spectacle. Now I'm having my sweet time and not worrying about coverage this week as I will be in Singapore till the weekend and taking time off. So if you want to reach me on my Brunei line, tough luck mates.. You can reach me via email if you want to get hold of me or those who have my contact, you can still whatsapp me.

Yesterday I covered a gaming event at Marina Bay Sands and it was similar to my version of Brunei Cyber Games but this one which was called Licence 2 Play was 10 times better than the one I normally organised. Judging from the props and set ups, they must have fork out a fortune and plus they have tons of sponsors to fund the event. I did have a good time and I got whipped in FIFA 13 by a Malay guy in a friendly game.

By evening, I was contemplating whether to catch Argo (the movie) or nap in time to catch the pulsating derby match between Manchester United and Manchester City. I opted for the latter and wow, someone realized that I had dark circles around my eyes. It must have been the lack of sleep for the past few days and even last night's sleep wasn't enough because my body clock normally is 7-8am.

I'm planning to catch Jersey Boys and maybe.. just maybe The Jackson's Unity Tour this weekend. Oh yeah, I will be heading to Legoland with the family this week. So something to look forward to :D With a week left, I can still take my sweet time and just enjoy my time in Singapore. I have yet to catch anyone in Singapore though I bumped into some friends here and there at Zoukout. Last year, I failed to bumped into any familiar faces. However, it was a different case last weekend and the crowd was just massive (40,000 people at least) at Siloso Beach.

So do bear with me with my relatively moderate to slow updates on RA. Have an awesome Monday and of course, throughout the week!!!

Pictures from Siloso Beach


Security check at the entrance. I was pretty sneaky because I cut the queue which was at least 500 metres long.. Shhh...

The DJ lined up at ZO

I loved the lightings

Calvin Harris in the house. Definitely the highlightt of ZoukOut 2012

They have upgraded the lighting effects and it looks wicked

The crowd and the atmosphere were pretty crazy

Meet the drum guys!!

Glow sticks were selling like hot cakes. I didn't get one for myself though.

Everyone going nuts when it was time for Calvin Harris

Loads of human lifting too

I bought some merchandise from ZO

High demands for recharging your smartphones. However, signal is very poor because of network congestions

I kinda like Nina Kraviz

The mini fireworks by 2am

ZoukOut 2012 was a blast indeed!!

I love DJ Porter Robinson

The scene at Siloso Beach

There were some games for the public to play

Such a bad idea to have this game, don't you think?

A-Trak was not bad.. Apparently the Star Stage didn't have as much of a crowd compared to the Moon Stage

The great thing about carrying an SLR, they keep asking me to take photos of them :D

So did these ladies…

Brunei represent yo….

The ushers killing time as the queue died down.. Well, it was almost 4am that time

My final pitstop before heading back to the hotel. My cab charge was $50 then.. but I was just wanna get home without the waiting for so long
