The STGCC 2012 Survival Guide!

This year, the Singapore Toy, Games & Comics Convention will be held at Marina Bay Sands! It’s a whole different game from last year when it was at Suntec. The Sands Expo & Convention Centre will be quite a new place for a lot of us visiting. I’ve not much pictures but here’s a written guide for you.


1) Via MRT: Drop at Bayfront MRT and just follow the exit signs towards the convention centre

2) Buses are: 97/97E, 106, 133, 502/502A, 518/518A, NR1 (Available on Fridays, Saturdays and eve of public holidays), and NR6 (Available on Fridays, Saturdays and eve of public holidays). When you’re getting on the bridge and going up towards MBS, you’ll press the bell when you’re about to reach the Bayfront MRT station.

You will WALK a lot. Either way, the bus stops and station will be at opposite ends of Marina Bay Sands. The convention halls are in the “middle”. Ok, its not THAT much walking but just be prepared to go up/down the escalators to get to the floor with the convention halls. Or just follow people in costumes.

Selamat Hari Raya Puasa for 2012

Or in other parts of the world, Eid Mubarak works too.

For those who thought the Geylang bazaar was quiet, well, it wasn’t. At least not for the 17th since it would have closed on the 18th. Slashed prices. Kueh on sale. Everything had to go.

This year’s trend for outfits is Arabian style. Plus stalls doing henna designs on your hands and eyebrow threading besides the usual stalls of food, decorations and clothes.

The most unlikely to be at the bazaar appearance was…

Hello from Sarah and hello from SG

Happy National Day to you lot! Instead of posting anything, since it was a holiday and all… Have you checked Hello from SG?

One Twitter account. A different person living in Singapore a week, every week.

That’s their tagline.

Ironically, at the moment of this post, their tumblr’s about page still doesn’t state the twitter account name except for Sweden’s. It’s mostly there on the usual page s where the people introduce themselves though!

The Dark Knight Rises… With Domino’s Pizza

This post is brought to you by Domino’s Pizza and!

Like Catwoman, I was trapped in Gotham. Instead of Gotham, it was Vivocity since I missed the last train at Harbourfront. How did I end up there even?

I got to watch The Dark Knight Rises by getting a ticket by Omy in a private theatre just reserved by Domino’s. The movie ended at midnight since it was that long.

If you’re a fan of Domino’s, you should like their Facebook page. You might win some tickets to their next movie outing for their special customers. And wow, they have quite a lot of special customers who love to buy their pizzas.

It’s cool to know that they do keep a list of special customers and give out goodies or tickets to them besides for fans who like their page.
