I was invited for the Youreka finale at Singapore Flyer Deck.
This is going to be the final showdown for the active Youreka participants. Besides the winning of the 1.3 Honda Jazz, there were tonnes of events lining up in this finale.
I am impressed by the performance put up by the organizer especially for the fact that they have hired local artists. Getting DJ Koflow to kick off the party has certainly heat up the atmosphere. 98.7 FM Radio Dee Jay Mr Young and Danial Ong have completed control of the event and of course, their crappy but entertaining sense of humour played an important role in spicing up the event.
Local artists like Electrico and Firefight have performed a couple of songs during the party. I seldom watch local performance and I was very impressed by their performance and started to convince what DK has said, “Singapore does have talents!” but Singaporean just couldn’t be good audience. I think it is just a typical Singaporean’s behaviour and this has made the event less “noisy” despite the fact, it was very well-executed.
