Year 2008 when I picked up my first DSLR and started travelling. I’ve been to the picturesque Batanes, the elusive Basilan, the country’s highest peak, Mt. Apo but have never been outside the Philippines. It is really on my plan this year to visit other nations but not Singapore. It was supposed to be Indonesia because I wanted to see Borobudur. It was a sudden changed of plan because one of my most favorite bands, Foo Fighters will be playing in Singapore. Unfortunately, the tour was cancelled a week before the show because of Dave Grohl’s medical condition. I was really upset but I can only complain to myself. I am just a fan and Dave’s health is more important. Yeah, he is a famous rock star but he is only human like us.
I still pursued the trip even without the concert, airfare cannot be refunded anyways. I spent my first night shooting the city. I took this opportunity because I can’t do this here in the Philippines. Unlike in Singapore, there are no prohibitions; no security guards will stop you from shooting the buildings and no worries if there are snatchers or hold uppers.
There is no time difference between Philippines and Singapore but the sunset and sunrise is a bit late compared to the Philippines. I was astonished when I saw the time on my watch. It was already 7:15pm but the sky was still bright.
I was a little bit tired and hungry during the shoot but the beauty of Singapore at night took it all away.
