Ready, Get Set, Party!
Formula 1 weekend has definitely got to be the best time to be in Singapore! The atmosphere leading up to the weekend when these million dollar turbo cars race through the veins of our little island city is absolutely amazing.
The best part of it all – I got to enjoy the weekend with my bestest friends.
Ready, get set, the weekend begins!
Always happy to see my girls! Especially when Nura came back all the way from Amsterdam just for F1 weekend. Here we are, in the queue to read our palms. Ha, this secret shall die with us.
Up close with Caterham’s car. It reminds me of Green Goblin’s cosmic surfer!
My best Miley impression.
Sergey looking great in the F1 t-shirt he bought on that day itself!
With Nura and Chris.
So, this is how the steering wheel of a Formula 1 car looks like.
Meeting the Master Chef again! I remember meeting him for the first time last year at Ku De Ta and asking him how he liked our chicken rice. He absolutely hated it and called it a disaster! Oh no you didn’t, Gordon…
The Williams team doing a tyre change drill for the race that evening.
With Charley, who manages Amber Lounge.
A spectacular parade of Singapore Girls and vintage Rolls Royces.
Catching the one and only John Legend at the F1 Village. It was crazy hot but worth it. I loved how everyone sang along to his latest hit, All Of Me. Me included!
An absolute honour for me to have met our Prime Minister at the Paddock on Sunday. So proud to call him a fellow alumnus of National Junior College!
It’s Also About The Food…
This could be one of the things I look forward to the most every year at the Paddock. How can you say otherwise when Jean Georges comes down to Singapore to feed you!
THIS wagyu beef burger.
I must have asked the lady to shave an entire truffle on my burrata!
Pan seared foie gras with a side of longan and molecular foie gras powder.
And The Parties!
I think I have turned into something of a homebody lately, going out maybe one night a month? But, Formula 1 weekend is the one weekend of all weekends that you have to be out. Definitely worth staying out late and getting up to mischief for this one. I think I might have gotten a little more than I wished for. Maybe, a lot more.
Never miss a beat with these girls!

Nura being cheeky with Alex, a dear friend of hers and also the only F1 driver to ever come from our region!
The ultimate Singapore Grand Prix selfie, with Ferrari F1 driver Fernando Alonso and friends!
It was so adorable how he turned around when I called out “Jon Snow”. Must not have been the first time that someone has mistaken him for the brave Stark. And Alonso was kind enough to take this photo for us!
Was also great to bump into Joonas again after seeing him last at the Lotus garage last year!
Jealousy is a funny thing.
I have never been one to welcome every person I meet into my life. A handful of people that I can trust my life with is all I need. It has always been the case, and for good reason.
I think it’s become apparent enough that Shahnaz and I joke about this being the story of my life – I make a new girl friend, we get along really well and we start to hang out more and more. Soon enough, I’m getting frenemy vibes. One completely uncalled for Facebook unfriend later, I’m left confused and resigned.
But I won’t pursue, because it’s not worth it.
Why spend your time ruminating about someone else’s silly deeds and expose yourself to such emotional toxicity when it is much easier and more straightforward to appreciate that you have friends who have stuck around for years and will stick around for more. Most importantly, I don’t believe in anyone making me feel guilty for all the things I worked so long and hard for.
I love how my little sister puts it. “If anyone sees you lounging around in your pyjamas at 2pm on Sunday obsessing over your perfect Animal Crossing town on your Nintendo, they would soon realise that there’s nothing to be jealous about.” Mark her golden words!
I won’t ask you to hang out but I will say hi like how I always do. I will treat you the same, and it is up to you how you would like to reciprocate, as it has always been. Drama has never been my strong suit, and I don’t intend to make it.
If you think this post is about you, then you must be quite the funny thing.

I think you can definitely tell my style from my picks – A girly pastel pop of colour with a little bit of edge is definitely my thing. Alright now, if only I could remember where I left my limitless credit card…
