Charice was set to perform at the first day of the 2011 Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix. After exhausting all my efforts capturing the cars in motion, I headed down to the Padang Stage where the Filipina prodigy & Glee star sensation was set to unleash her vocal prowess. As I arrived, I was stuck right beside the control booth at about 100 meters away from the stage. Beyond that was a controlled fence which only allows ticket holders with privilege wrist bands.

As cheapskate as I can be, I spent a few bucks for a 1 day walk-about, which, in return gave me an opportunity to witness the event at the worst view anyone could  ever imagine. I was carrying an ID that hinders me from enjoying at an elevated platform without the fences glued in front like Britney Spears’ bodyguards. (more…)

It was until I saw Todd Owyoung’s photo blog of Suicide Silence at Mayhem Fest that got me jumping-off my seat itching for that gig to come. (more…)
