Jo and I attended the Official Opening of Tampines 1 on 17 July 2009.
Held on the Tampines 1 Mall Rooftop, the area was transformed with pretty tentages (the weather has been very erratic) and multitudes of industrial-standard coolers and mist machines to keep guests cool and happy.
And that is not forgetting the elaborate decorations…
Everywhere you turned, there was something interesting and eye-catching to oogle at.
And lets not forget the food!!!
Smart move to have mall tenants provide food for the event. I’m not much of a foodie, but without a doubt, two thumbs up (!!!) it was really good. (:
There were macaroons, J.Co mini donuts and Bakerzin desserts…
drooling yet? 😀
There were also three sushi chefs stationed there for the entire evening, frantically folding, rolling, pressing, cutting, arranging sushi for guests to eat. (Thank you sushi chefs, you are appreciated!)
We soaked up the atmosphere and ate the our food to a live 4-piece ensemble who serenaded through the night.
Drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, were freely flowing through the night. (wah! big budget can?!‘)
And the white wine they were serving was the shiz!!! I could have downed an entire bottle because it was that yummy. *slurps (:
In addition to the decor, food and drinks, Mr. Brad Blaze, speed painter based in Sydney, Australia, was wandering around the rooftop, doing caricature drawings of guests upon request.
Seriously, Tampines 1, where do you get all your money from!!! I’d like some too!
And if you think a rooftop party with tentage and fans, freely flowing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and donuts, macaroons, shotglass desserts, cakes and sushi, (did I also mention that the 15+ waiters kept asking us if we wanted hors d’oeuvres through the night!), live music, Aussie artist and photographers taking guests photographs…
We each went home with a party favour – a bottle of wine!
Thank you for inviting us Tampines 1! (:
