Welcome back to my trip’s recap. Before I dive in, I have to admit…recording my emotions and events that transpired throughout my blog has been very fruitful for me. You, as the reader, are living vicariously through me. As the writer, I get to relive the excitement when I indulge in my writing. Soooooo, if you have an experience…write about it… and share it with me dammit. haha. Let’s dive into some more Singapore Deetz.
Yacht life was cool and all, but I was ready for more. Roger and his girlie Sophia needed naps. Everyone on that boat wanted a nap before the night commenced.
… Not I!
I kept myself occupied during everyone’s nap time by working on some lyrics for my next album. Once they woke up, it was time to head into the lovely downtown area of Singapore to observe some Formula 1 Racing. Wooooo baby!! The idea of smelling burning rubber mixed with the combusting petrol lifted the hair follicles in my nostrils as goosebumps shot throughout the entirety body. Tossing my camera and all of those emotions into my personalized TUMI bag, we finally made our way downtown using public transportation.
What we call the MTA or PATH here in New York and New Jersey respectively, is called the MRT over in Singapore. There was a time where I believed that the PATH train was as good as it could get. (Much better than the MTA, in my solid opinion) Guess what? My beliefs were shot dead when I experienced the futuristic and hyper clean underground ecosystem Singapore currently has to offer. Holy cow! The stations were like spacious gerbil homes where commuters were separated from the track by a strategically constructed dome for modern transportation. What do I mean by this?? Ok ok. I know it sounds odd, but imagine an MTA underground station where you aren’t able to see the actual track. If you were to stand near the edge of the platform, you would be able to touch a wall of glass with strategically placed doors. These doors would only open when the trains would arrive and line up with the actual dome you were currently inside of. Don’t forget, that we are totally underground during this entire spiel. Ok. That’s enough of that.
We made it to the metropolitan area where we would finally purchase and pick up our tickets for the Formula 1 Event. Once we purchased and retrieved our tickets, we were able to enter the exclusive area that was set for the Formula 1 race, and it was a sight to see. Before I get into the details, let me tell you that I have never been in a city where the streets were lean & clean enough to host a freakin’ race. New York would be the worst place to do so considering all of the pot holes. Singapore’s roads are track ready and the city was more than happy to host a race with FORMULA 1 CARS!!! What the FLYING FROG!!!
Alright. I don’t need to mention that the cars were fast as hell. These cars aren’t NASCARS; they are vehicles that were engineered for cornering and picking up speed quickly in order to make it to the next corner. Racing lines are important here. Quick recap…the race began with a crash. Eventually, Lewis Hamilton took the chip. Immediately after the race was completed, fireworks shot into the sky directly between us and Marina Bay Sands. Once they were done, we headed over to the main stage to check out Calvin Harris.
Calvin did an amazing job but I didn’t hear any of his newer songs. Bummer.
Anywhoooo, I think that should be enough for today. Let’s pick up next blog entry with Marina Bay Sands. It’s only right considering there’s so much to tell about that experience. Trust me, you don’t want to miss that.
For now, toodles my JuliPeeps. Until next time!!
