Oops, it's been few days I didn't update this blog already. Well, I've been quite busy with my car in the workshop and all. Also I had to renew my passport on Wednesday after getting the invitation to join the 10 winners of the Hitz.FM and MY FM on the Maxis Lotus F1 - Singapore Grand Prix 2010. Thanks to Maxis and also Nuffnang, me, Jessica and Jackie Loi embarked on the journey from Menara Maxis to check in at Grand Park City Hall, Singapore and will be going for 3 days for the F1 events that is going on there.

Even walking to the City Hall MRT station I was able to hear the F1 engine roaring. The hotel is charging SGD 8 per half hour for Internet in the room or SGD 24 for 1 day. Thank you Singapore Government for having Wireless@SG which is a free Wireless Internet service that I was able to connect through in our room, which is on the 6th floor by the way. Registration is needed but you'll need a Singapore number. I got Hotlink roaming and connected to M1 and it sent me an SMS to dial *181*# and a username and password will be text to you to connect to Wireless@SG WiFi. The connection is pretty fast at this hour, 1 a.m.
My SG F1 pass for Friday 24th Sept 2010
After the dinner, my bro-in-law dropped me at Tanah Merah MRT station. I then took the MRT to Lavendar station which is the station to get to Gate 1 of Singapore F1 Circuit. It's very convenient because there will be shuttle bus just outside the station to fetch the guests to Gate 1. Gate 1 has Village Stage which Missy Elliot just performed.

I reached around 10.45 pm and there's still some crowd but not too crowded. Went to find my seat at the Pit Stop Grandstand. Which means we can see the pit stops from the Grand Stand. Not bad, not bad. This afternoon (Saturday) the organizer of this trip will try to arrange us to visit the pit stop of Lotus F1 team. Fingers crossed.
Can see Singapore Flyer from my seat.
