Why you should hold your Wedding @ the SEA Aquarium in Singapore.

So, I recently performed at the most beautiful wedding yet, 
within the comforts of one of the top tourist destination in Singapore - SEA Aquarium. 
Now, i know that the aquarium has been a popular choice for many corporate functions & company DnDs, 
but THIS Wedding, was a whole new underwater wonderland. 

Believe me, 
i perform for an average of at least one wedding per week, 
and this one exceeded all expectations. 

Anyone who has been to the SEA Aquarium will know that the last observatory, 
where the humongous aquarium for the Open Ocean Habitat stand, 
is the perfect ending to the aquarium tour, 
and probably worth the entrance fee by itself as an attraction. 

Imagine that space being transformed into a dining hall with
raining glitter, 
tiffany chairs, 
underwater-themed decorations, 
starfish and shellfish trinkets, 
all to set up for a backdrop of soaring manta-rays and squadrons of marine life frolicking in their natural habitat. 

No wonder my Facebook post of this photo garnered so many likes.

So here are some reasons why you should totally hold your wedding at the RWS SEA Aquarium, if you happen to be pretty rich. 

Screw flowers and half-hearted tea lights!
With a backdrop like this,
cake cutting and champagne pouring has never looked more magnificent. 

You are allowed to have ridiculously pretty table decor, 
like starfish centrepieces, and reflective lazy susans, 
and yet they will not look over the top. 


Tiffany Chairs look better in an aquarium than on a lawn.


And you get a sky full of stars, indoors.  

Imagine dining in front of fishes,
while having a nice piece of cod fish. 

Instagrammers be snapping' with glee.
Shots like these will probably garner a tonne of likes.

 Meanwhile, on my own Instagram...
I just had to!


Photowhoring is allowed because every corner is a photo point! 

You can place a band at the top of the space to perform for your guests. 
You can even get to sing a song for them.
At least that was what the bride did, she did a special surprise performance for her hubby :)
And with the tiered ballroom, everyone was able to have a grand view of the bride singing.


You are free to roam around the other areas of the aquarium,
champagne glass in hand. 

You get to champagne-tease fishes. 

The stroll towards the ballroom will be lined with mini aquariums and different 
underwater habitat displays,
so much so that you would already have taken 13942309854 pictures 
before you even reach the final destination.
The build up to the climax is important, they say :)

DT in Dalian, 15Nov!

If Dalian is a china lady, 
she would be the demure and romantic one. 
Beautiful both on the outside and on the inside. 
She's prim and proper, wholesome and clean, 
compared to her other sisters, Beijing and Shanghai. 

Long and short of it, 
I love Dalian! 
It's really nothing quite like the other polluted China cities. 
Even the people there seemed more cultured, unlike the more rural parts of China. 

It could also be because it was fall and autumn leaves were everywhere!! 
As usual i didn't have much time to explore, 
so i decided to take a stroll at the park opposite my hotel one fine morning, 
to take in the Autumn fresh air and experience fall!! 

Setting out! 

The park was truly amazing. 
Out of nowhere stood an amusement park entrance.

Lo and behold, 
carousel in the middle of a park. 
JAWDROP. 
It was so pretty!!


AHHH.... Autumn trees!
It was soooo beautiful!





 I was infinitely fascinated.
The summer girl is suagu.



Giant fallen leave the size of my face 0.o

It took me about an hour's stroll in the park, 
and i was having all sorts of emotions welling up within. 
I hardly ever felt this way about life but at that very moment, 
i felt peace, serenity and completeness. 
It was just all too beautiful; 
the yellow orange and red leaves, blue skies, candy coloured amusement park rides
which were all empty since it was too early in the morning. 

Then i walked into this retro-themed cafe, 
and it was playing jazz music in the background. 
The diner was quiet, 
with some light chattering among guests. 
I ordered a cuppa earl grey tea and found a seat.
It was another perfect moment right there. 



On my way back to the hotel, 
i passed by more random objects. 
Like a huge bouncy castle in the middle of the park.

A very chillax popcorn man reading his book,
completely not giving any rat's ass about his popcorn sales. 

Day 2, 
we had a little bit more time in the morning and decided to venture further out. 

Guzheng player Jing Jing and I cabbed to Xing Hai Square!

Hugee skating rink.





More random amusement park.




We hopped on a cab and he gave us a tour up the mountains.

This reminds me a lot of the Great Ocean Road in Melbourne!!!



And this was what i went to Dalian for :) 
To sing!!

Rehearsal and soundcheck in progress...
