Lady Gaga’s Showcase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! by Singtel AMPed

I can’t believe I was so lucky to get last minute complimentary tickets to Lady Gaga’s exclusive showcase OHHMYYGOOODDD. That’s right biatches! U jelly?

Thank you Huiwen / Nuffnang!!!! ♥

Even though it happened like 2 weeks ago I STILL get the shivers when I picture her coming out on stage, every time I recall that night my heart flutters a little bit. To say that being privileged enough to watch Lady Gaga perform live a mere few metres in front of you is a euphoric experience is a shameful understatement.

I swear the whole time I was like :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

*hyperventilates and screams*

Even though I’m not a super die-hard fan (meaning I don’t call myself a little monster or keep up with her obsessively or listen to all her songs) I’m still incredibly fascinated by her.

I think she is amazinggggg at what she does. I may not like certain messages she’s sending across (why do some of her music videos look like cult freak shows / blasphemy related content).. But hey, who am I to judge.. it’s working out for her right? She’s like the Michael Jackson of our time. Her difference is to her advantage. People say she’s the new age Madonna but I think she’s wayyy bigger than Madonna, I don’t think Madonna ever made this much impact on people around the world.

Whenever I watch one of her live performances online I just stare in awe. She’s got such a unique and strong voice and her stage presence is crazily empowering. If Taylor Swift was enchanting, Lady Gaga was ELECTRIFYING!

Brought Eric along! At first I thought Sam wouldn’t be interested and I always see Eric raving about Lady Gaga’s “artistry” on Twitter and I can tell he’s a huge fan so I thought it’d be nice to do him a favour!

But turns out Sam is a closet Gaga fan HAHAHAHA thinking about it now he always go “rah rah rah ah ah” for no reason and breaks into Gaga songs spontaneous (mainly Bad Romance and Poker Face) and I managed to get 1 extra ticket for 3 of us to go!!! Yay!!

Thanks for the treat to Thai food btw Eric! ^.^ He’s a sweetie.

Sam and I SUPER psyched.

Surprisingly we were both much more excited about this than Taylor Swift’s concert (even though I listen to Taylor’s songs much more) I guess Lady Gaga is more iconic and is more of a performer? And also because it was such last minute notice!!!

We were informed of the free tickets ONE DAY before the actual showcase and it was a pleasant surprise to say the least hehe.

Got there rather early and our view was pretty good. We weren’t at the very front but pretty darn close!! I SWEAR ONCE OR TWICE GAGA AND ME LOCKED EYES FOR A SPLIT SECOND

(coz I’d be waving frantically to catch her attention lol) but that may just be me being bonkers.

We stood around for like a full hour before she entered the stage…. and when she did I don’t remember much besides opening my eyes like this O.O and not blinking for 10 whole minutes and tiptoe-ing so much to see her properly (tall crowd) that my calves cramped up and it hurt like shit but I didn’t care!!!!! It was crazy to see her in person. She looks and sounds exactly the same on Youtube, TV and on her album lol. I know this sounds stupid but often I find it hard to believe that celebrities are real.

So whenever I’m moderately near them (like in the same concert hall) or something I’m like OMG SHE IS SO NEAR ME!!!! That’s so cool! I’m breathing the same air as her!

MAYBE I CAN ABSORB SOME OF HER TALENT THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE

#foreveralone #foreverunfamousanduntalented

I was staring at her ass and hair (blue/green wig) the whole night lol. They’re fabulous.

Observing every single movement she made intently!!!

Gaga was like crawling and jumping and bouncing and floating and galloping and running and falling and sliding all over the whole damn stage!!! Not a second of it was boring or mediocre.

She had very minimal space to perform because the auditorium was tiny (PRIVATE showcase you know!! *fans self*) but she made full use of it.

Most of my pictures of her that night turned out like this. Blurry and half assed lol. Everyone was jumping up and down so much (including myself) I couldn’t keep my camera still for one second!!! There was so much jumping that the ground trembled under the pressure WTF for a moment I thought there might be an earthquake going on.

Crazy stomping fans on a rampage + exploding ear drums due to massive sound waves from giant bass speakers = earthquake simulator.

All of them had giant fake moles drawn on their faces hahaha

Comforting to know even Gaga has bad angles

Special effects wowza!!

Hailed as a goddess by so many. I wonder what it’s like to live a day in the life of Lady Gaga.


“WA MENG TTTTIIIIIIII WA MENG TI!!!”

0:49 LOL!!!


I WHIP MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH!!

Speaking of hair, Gaga sang a breathtaking acoustic version of her new song, “Hair”. It’s so beautiful I almost cried while she sang it.. wait I think I did cry a little.

Her performances are rock solid powerful!

You can listen to it here… it was even better live and when everyone was singing along!

I’d bet her armpit smells like roses.

…Or hairspray. Or talent. What does talent smell like?

Sam and me sweating like crazy while being squished like sardines. I was in a tight black dress and he was in a tight blazer but we could still jump up and down like hyperactive 15 year olds throughout the show lol. Eric was beside us the whole time diligently FILMING the whole concert!!!!

D.e.d.i.c.a.t.i.o.n.

I tried to get him to jump and scream with us by shaking him but I don’t think he appreciated that very much LOL must have caused his video to go blurry.

I took a video too!! With my iphone so the quality is worse than lao sai but you can catch glimpses of Sam and I jumping up and down hahaha.

Lady Gaga sang all her top hits (Bad romance, Judas, Edge of Glory, etc) but included some of her newer songs and I didn’t expect it to go on for so long, it was for at least an hour I think. I thought she would’ve left after like 3 songs but it felt like a full concert!!!!


VERY HAPPY ME.

I really really really enjoyed myself!!! The experience was relatively brief but it made a huge impact. I’m definitely a bigger fan now, I listen to her songs much more often (even the non-popular ones) and I find her wonderfully inspiring.

After the concert, Alaric Sophie Eric Sam and I went to MBS (the showcase was held there) food court for supper. We got some food and chatted for a longgg time about everything under the sun (they are all such nice people!!!) before Alaric drove us to play some zombie smashin’ L4D.

They brought us to this lan shop at Selegie which was like the best lan place I’ve ever been to. Super clean, quiet, nice smelling, sofa seats, and after people get off their computer when they’re done using it the owner actually wipes the mouse and keyboard with a clean towel so everything’s spotless!!!!

AMAZING. I’ve never been to a more pleasant lan shop lol

Most overplayed map urgh I hate it

Sam had an equally great time that night!!

Thank you Nuffnang for making this possible. And to everyone else that night for being great company :)

LOVE YOU GAGA! ♥ I can’t wait to see you live again next time!!!!!! You are truly, rightfully legendary. Years down the track I will remember this night about how I was fortunate enough to be in the middle of a privileged small crowd that Lady Gaga performed to and how awesome it was to be in her presence!

Ending this post with one of my favorite performances by Gaga ever. Posted this some time back but doesn’t hurt to post it again.

She’s poetry in motion.

Fidelis’ 21st!!!!

A couple of nights ago, Sam and I excitedly attended Fidelis’ big 21st! I haven’t seen her in forever, and it was really good to catch up again.

Picture intensive post ahead! (66 piccys to be exact)

The best thing about being friends with bloggers is that even after many months (over a year actually) of not talking to each other, you still have a brief idea of what’s going on in each other’s lives because of blog entries, so you can skip the awkward “What are you doing now? What happened to your ex?” etc etc sort of talk.

It almost felt like nothing has changed, that it was 2008 again. I wish that was the case though.. but as long as everything’s all good now, I suppose it’s all that matters :)

Birthday girl dutifully preparing treats for her guests before they arrive. Her party was so much fun! Plenty of food, booze, non-stop flow of music, laughter and camwhoring!

She baked these meringue cookies herself! Yummeh. I LOVE MERINGUE ^.^ Egg whitey sugary goodness!

Candy floss machine! :D First time I’ve seen a mini version, so cute

Purty!

I wonder if this was the stuff she put in the jello shots lol

These jello shots are AH-mazing! ♥ I couldn’t stop popping them. So petite and colorful, cuteeee! From the moment I arrived Fidelis kept shoving them down my throat. Trying to get me drunk tskkk!!!

It’s by far the most addictive alcohol drink / shot everrrr because the jelly and sugar made the alcohol taste so unoffensive, it was like liquor chocolate but better.. liquour JELLY! In fact I really want some now hahaha I can’t even remember how many I had, but the following pictures should give you a rough idea…

Val and I downing jello shots ;) First of many to come lol

Another…

And anotherrRRRrrrrRRRRRRrrr….

Valerie is sooooo tall! I can’t remember her exact height but I’m like 1.7 so she’s probably like 1.86 or something. I always feel unnecessarily midget-like when I’m around her, which isn’t fair because I’m not short in the first place LOL

So I made her bend down to take pictures with me n_n

Sam over enthusiastically urging me to drink with a SINISTER look in his eyes. I know your motives!!! You want to get me drunk then take advantage of me obvs. Ain’t happen bruddah!

To infinity, and beyond!!!!

I think 7 out of 10 pictures I’m in from all the pictures taken that night I had a jello shot in my hand / mouth LOL

Something about catered food makes me smile. I think it’s how all the food is neatly labelled and presented and knowing I could have as much of it as I want, the food’s just sitting there waiting to be eaten :P

I brought the special B’day girlie customized cupcakes from Shiberty’s Sweets to suit her Mardi Gras themed party! Green, purple and gold. Butterscotch and chocolate flavored. They received a lot of raves at the party, much to my delight ♥

Her other gift was a Victoria’s Secret perfume called “Sexy Little Thing” and it’s SOOOO sweet, it smells like you’re being soaked in vanilla fields. One of my fav scents out there, hope she likes it as much as I do!

Cuppycakes!!! ^.^

Fidelis actually handmade all these ADORABLE props for all of us to take piccys with!! My favorite was the hitler moustache hahaha

Actually.. it looks more like a Charlie Chaplin moustache when I put it on :P

HUA! I IZ MARDI GRAS POCAHONTAS! (LOL) Or is that a masquerade mask? I can’t decide.

*cue kung fu fighting song*

HAHAHA after he saw me wear the mask he was like, “GIMME!” with grabby hands, then started doing silly poses with it. Typically Sam.

My stern expression after seeing his antics. *not amused*

Him trying to be the same. He can’t pull a serious face for shit LOL

Taking a picture of you taking a picture of us! My lens is damn dirty o.x Time for a wipe-down.

Speaking of which, most of the pics in this post is credited to Chris L (dude in green obvs) and his pro Canon 5D camera hence the ultra clear quality! Knew him as a photographer since years back from when I used to do shoots.

LOL random gay moment.. by gay I mean happy of course, rite? Just so ppl don’t go all ZOMG U HOMOPHOB on my ass.

Playing with the Cotton Candy machine!!! Waited all night for my turn because there was always somebody fiddling with it. Lost interest after 2 minutes though.

SO SLOW!!! I need more candy then a few strands of candy per minute. om nom nom nomz -turns attention back to jello shots-

He’s such a kid :) It tickles me in a good spot to know that candy floss can still make my 24 year old man happy! It’s all about the little things in life.

When you turn this red -hic- It’s a good indication to stop the shots. By this time I’d already spilled 2 drinks (not sure due to my clumsiness or tipsy state? I wasn’t light headed tho.. I think)

Sam’s had a few himselfff hurhur

BNW white pic so nobody knows how notices how red we are :DDDDDD

Sam with Eugene, Val’s friend! You know when they say birds of a feather flock together it’s true because Eugene also damn tall wtf. I also wan to be damn tall!!! The air must be fresher up there!

And talking to shorter people must be fun because they must actually look UP to you (geddit?) if they want to hold a conversation lol

Lots of love for the b’day girl!!!!!

HAHAHAH omg my expression is so stupid in this picture!!! Chris why you take such unglam shots of me?

We were chilling in the bedroom upstairs watching Zombieland (yayy zombie movies!) on Val’s iPad 2 and she was showing off the cool functions to me and I think this was captured when she did the 4 finger swipe thing and I was like WOAH they can sense how many fingers are on the screen. LOL. I call this the /nubface/

Slightly better pic! Redemption.

At this time Fidel came up to the room to check on us and to offer us icy cold Sprite and other refreshments, and also to tell us that cake cutting would soon begin weeeee

Leon finally arrives and helps the b’day girl prepare the 2 tiered cake!

We didn’t manage to do Fidelis’ cake for her because by the time I’d received the invite, I heard from Leon that she’d already ordered her cake from someone else!!! Boo!!

But it was a good lookin’ cake nevertheless, and the best part was the extremely competitive pricing. *nods head and squints eyes…monitoring competition* :P

..And then it begins, all her friends clapping and chorusing in unison! I can see it in her face that she was really happy. ♥ Happy for her that she’s happy. Been damn long since anybody sang me a B’day song like that besides my bf -tear-


Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!

Happy birthday little munchkin, happy birthday to you!

IT’S YOUR 21ST YOU’D BETTER BE A BIG GIRL NOW AND STOP TALKING IN THAT BABY VOICE HEHEHE

Was part of her 19th (only 4 of us at Leon’s place, good times), missed her 20th but thankfully I’m here for her 21st :)

Pictures galoreeeee

Kisses for you!

Oi, what’s that reaction?!? Dunno is flattery, disgust or confusion?

Out comes the cuppycakes to share with her guests!!!

Valerie aka potential future Miss Singapore savoring a cupcake! She’s running for this year’s title and I think tomorrow is the finals. Good luck Val!!!

I can’t wait till she wins, then I’d plaster this photo + her raves on the cupcakes onto Shiberty’s Sweets website. :P

“MISS SINGAPORE SAYS…. CUPCAKES FROM SHIBERTY’S SWEETS PWNZ!”

Leon and Fidel’s friend giving LMAO expressions after their first bite.

In case you think it’s an unpleasant reaction, it’s not ok!!! They were like “WTF so pretty and so yummy one?!!!!! :O”

“Want to try??? Here, have a bite! Om nom nomz”

I think Leon has a damn classic comical face. I look at any picture of him in it pulling an expression and I feel like laughing LOL

While people were eating ma cupcakes…. I sat in a corner watching them, eating salsa with chips.

I also wanted a cupcake but it seemed kinda rude to eat your own cupcakes at someone elses’ party, no?! You’d think after being around cakes 24/7 for months now, I’d be sick of it, but I’m still not! I love licking the frosting the most, sets me on a sugar high n_n

Forget about sugar high.

I think me and Fidel were downright bloody high off alcohol already LOL coz we saw THIS:

Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeps marshmallows!

And Fidel started exclaiming “OMG LET’S PLAY CHUBBY BUNNY!!! CHHUUBBBYYYY BUNNYYYYY”

..Ok bby girl, if it’s chubby bunny you want, it’s chubby bunny you’ll get!!!!! Be forewarned though, I’m kind of an expert in chowing down food. *grins*

…………………….
……………….

Ready… set… GO!!!

*stuffs face in front of everyone watching*

Marshmallow one – IN SUCCESSFULLY! *says Chubby Bunny*

Marshmallow 2….. *muffled Chuwwy Buwwy comes out of Fidel’s mouth*

Man, these little fluffy duckies take up more space in your mouth than you’d think!

By the 3rd one, we started gagging already LOLOL. OMG WE LOOK LIKE BOOMERS ABOUT TO EXPLODE.



RUNNNNN, the horde’s about to come!!!!
Bile incoming!!!!

*tries to say Chubby Bunny but it sounds like… OOFEE BOOWEEE*

By our 4th one, we were falling to the ground, choking heavily on both marshmallow and our own laughter!!!!!!! You can’t even laugh properly because if you open your mouth too big all the marshmallow would stop popping out LOL

I think we stopped at our 5th one because we were about to throw up!!! We ran to the toilet to spit everything out. Ewwwwwwww hahahah saliva dripping all over my mouth, face and hands!!!

It totally didn’t help that the Peeps marshmallows were overly sugary and sweet but it was worth it. Haven’t laughed like that in so long!

TIME TO PUT OUR BOYFRIENDS TO THE TEST!!!!!!

Don’t fail me baby!!!! I believe in you and your humongous mouth! :D Make me proud.

The boys did the first 3 with ease!

Ohhh, Leon, showing signs of weakness so soon???

Watching your friends gag is so hilarious yet cruel ^_______^


SAM STILL GOING STRONG!!!
It’s his 5th one!! Leon stares in disbelief coz it’s only his 3rd. His face spells – “What the fuckkkk, how big is your mouth you freak?”!

HAHAHAHA Leon looks as though he might launch a marshmallow cannon-spit-ball into Sam’s face!!!


“KILL ME NAOOOOOOOOO”

We tell the boys to go spit out the marshmallows so we can count them properly and that was either a terrible or brilliant idea, depending on how you look at it :P

I apologize on Leon’s behalf for the string of saliva. LOL

But… he still seems kinda pleased with himself, because he scored FIVE!!!! Same as me!

*drumroll*

But Sam emerges as the winner….. for he had SEVEN MARSHMALLOWS IN HIS MOUTH!!!!

SEVEENNNNNN. How does he even do it? Don’t ask me, but he’d make a great girl since his gag reflexes are close to zero lmao.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the face of d-e-f-e-a-t.

…With 5 marshmallows stuffed in it’s mouth and 2 middle fingers pointed towards the high heavens in anger. It is not a very pretty sight.

“WA MNG TIIIIIIII WA MNG TIIIIIIII Y MY MOUTH NOT SO BIGGGGG???”

Well, in the end the boys shook on it and…

*deng deng deng deng deng*

We have a winner!!!!

Congratz darling! *blows kisses* No real kiss because he was dripping with saliva. LOL.

Gwen in Singapore!!!

My hands were awkwardly squashed because I had to hold my laptop up in the weirdest position ever :3

Gwen and Blake are in Singapore and we’ve had so much fun the past few days!!!!

Swimming in the pool and funny wrestle matches, midnight movies and awesome meals, marina bay sands and board games and cooking and wii!!! AND MORE!

Can’t wait to blog about it but I’m sooo tired now.. something about bubble baths and hotel beds give you a lethal drowsy combination.

I promise lots of beautiful happy photos soon :)

So much to share. 2011 has been so eventful thus far, let’s hope it stays that way!!

P.S – Check out some Photoshop work I hastily did while I was bored!!! A 10 minute job or less but I think it’s a good look if your aim is to resemble a porcelain doll.

Before

After!!!


Never believe what you see on the internet, people!

And this is coming from the girl who’s past 3 boyfriends have all been from different online games. Way to go.
