Worked at SingFest on Saturday and Sunday.At least i get to watch Alicia Key's performance!!She's just so damn awesome!Anyway,more on that later.
Saturday was the longest/dirtiest/sweatiest/sticktiest day ever!The weather was so friggin hot,we were like roast pig under the sun.Really damn tiring!Worked from 10.30am all the way to 1.30am(no,your eyes are not playing tricks on you,10.30am-1.30am it is!!)15 hours of work and only ONE meal.POWERRRRRR!!But yesterday,the boss was very apologetic about it and kept saying sorry while explaining to us.
Anyway,got to see quite alot of Singapore's celebrity in the crowd as well.Jean Danker(SHE'S DAMN PRETTY AND FRIENDLY!!),Fiona Xie(she actually wore sunglass at night(?!)yah,tell me about it.But she's hot,very petite)actually she's quite nice.I don't know is she really that cheerful as a person or what but yeah,when we talked to her and people approached her for phototaking,she seemed really friendly.Oh!And i saw Nat Ho yesterday!!I didn't know it was him actually until he walked closer and he smiled at me.*melts*Come to think of it,most of the Singaporean celebs are actually pretty friendly,just that it's really quite hard to go gaga over them.
Oh,and Andrea Fonseka(or however you spell her name).I used to think she's really pretty and stuff but after Saturday,i totally changed my mind.Super arrogant and guess what?She smokes!And she only interview caucasians lor.Damn right-in-the-face man.But who cares..not really that great a deal to me.Just another DOND girl who got famous and yadda yadda~~
Anyway,we got to see a few international celebs while walking up to our respective stations.I saw Simple Plan on Saturday and the weird thing was,i think 2 of the members came out from the main entrance to pass the pass to a guy,Christy and myself just looked at them and went like 'orh',before opening the gate for them.And the weirder thing was,nobody screamed.They were all minding their own business.LOL!Ok,actually not that funny.It's damn sad if you're the artist and nobody cheers for you when they see you.Maybe can't really recognise lah,angmohs all looks the same just like how they see us.
As for Sunday,the crowd was crazy!!I think there were more than 10,000 people.
Our station was the ticketing station and luckily i'm only supposed to usher them at the queue.Christy and a few other colleagues had to tear the tickets from 1.30pm all the way till about 6pm.Just imagine how bloody long was the queue?It was never-ending and we had idiotic people venting angers on us just because they stood under the damn sun for over an hour ONLY.Like hello?We stood there for HOURS ok?Till the sun sets ok!?Talking about tired,we worked all the way till 1.30 in the morning the day before and having to report to work the next day at 10.30am again,who are the ones supposed to be feeling tired?Nonsense leh these people.
I mean ok,i understand some people were pretty pissed off knowing we had to take back the stubs even though USUALLY,they can keep it for well,keepsake's purpose?But it was not under our control lor.We thought it was quite ridiculous too when we were told to do that but what to do?The organiser wants it that way so we were just doing what we were told.Simple as that.We want to be flexible too but we can't.
There were so many cases,i don't think i can list down all.
Back to my Alicia Keys.She's awesome!!:)
You know that kind of feeling when you see everyone sing along to that particular song and you can feel goosebumps all over your body?It's very overwhelming.My colleague and myself actually ran down all the way just to hear her sing the last song and damn,it was just..fantastic!!
