Cheers to the load of great fun and new experiences as I joined the Migme
team on the 25th Oct with a group of overseas bloggers from Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines. Among us was a young Indonesian celebrity, Anisa Rahma and her lucky fan whom she picked to join her for this trip to Singapore!
I started off my fun filled day with a spread of seafood from Crab in Da Bag! They were the FIRST in Singapore to serve the ‘Caboodle Boil’ – their very own Southern Louisiana Seafood Boil Specialty.
The staffs brought out metal buckets containing a mixture of seafood, corn, sausages and potatoes, pouring them onto the table itself. Cameras were already taking aim like sniper rifles, ready to capture the best pouring shots.
Armed with a bib and nutcrackers (optional) to disarm these crustaceans, everyone began dissecting these red creatures. Mollusks such as the mussels and clams were not their priority but still being attacked after their larger relatives were de-shelled.
Sad for me, due to being allergic to crustaceans and with their sweet reactive juices coating everything in there, I could only manage to eat 3 sausages and a corn before my allergic reaction got worst. It was great to watch the others really enjoying themselves, savouring the freshness of the sea while biting into the hidden flesh of these shelled creatures. Even though I could not enjoy eating them, I still fed my camera with photos!
After a sneak peep at the training court where the players were practicing hard even before the competition, we proceeded on to walk around the event space, all revolving around the tennis theme.
Check out some of the activities I had participated in the pictures below!
Swinging my racket to hit virtual balls and missing all of them while hitting the wall behind instead.
Acting like a kid and swinging on a swing with seat made of tennis balls.
Smashing hard to test the power of my swing.
Aiming to stick the balls on the giant racket.
Not forgetting the photo booths as well as many wefies I had with the other bloggers!
Finally it was time to head over to the Racquet Club. The building’s interior was furnished like a hotel lobby and the staffs provided excellent customer service. There were cluster of different rooms and we were led into the one called ‘Chris Evert Suite’.
Dinner was a buffet spread with my choice of wine, champagne or orange juice. I almost thought that I was in a hotel as the food tasted really awesome, with the wok fried wagyu beef in black pepper sauce, garlic flakes and pepper confit being my top favourite dish that day.
After 2 rounds of serving, it was time to rush into the stadium to watch the WTA Finals 2015!
It was a thrilling experience to step into the indoor stadium to watch a live tennis match! I have never had the chance to watch a live match till now, especially when my seat was considered premium which meant that it was closer to the court!
The finals have finally began! I had a clear view of Maria Sharapove VS Agnieszka Radwanska that night. I witnessed the 2 beautiful sporty ladies displaying their shift moves, high stamina and strength as they played throughout the match! The cooperation, applause and the constant cheers from the audience displayed the support people show to their tennis idols!
In between the matches, I went for a toilet break and visiting the lounge since I was around that vicinity. There were cocktails, champagnes as well as wines available. I went towards the Nespresso counter since I spotted a crowd watching the barista preparing some fanciful looking beverage. Without thought, I had the mango cream with espresso without realising that I just had caffeine. There goes my sleep that night…
After my potent stay-awake concoction and chatting with the staff a little, I headed back to my seat to catch the final moments of the match! The situation was rather tense, my eyes locked onto the ball each time as it flew across the net. The cheers grew louder each time and the final roar of cheers boomed as Agnieszka Radwanska’s final ball hit the net. Victory goes to Maria Sharapove as she shrugged her shoulders and smiled in bewilderment.
Cameras were once again snapping in unity as many stood up to continue cheering for her victory. A speech was made and people could be seen clustering nearby, holding on to their large tennis balls, waiting for her signature.
Congratulations to Maria Sharapove as she scored a victory. Agnieszka Radwanska also did her best at the court to strike back. I had a great time watching the match, enjoying the yummy food, as well as getting to know other bloggers.
Thank you Migme for the invite!
