Street Dance Alive

Last night with some friends I went to City Alive, what they called as Singapore's Biggest Street Dance Party, placed in Tracks at Pit Building. I've visited Pit Building before, not for watching F1 of course not my favorite, but for Club 21 big sale *doh*. But this is my first time coming into the Tracks. The floor dance was on that road.

One of the Highlights said in its website is: Big Surprise! City Alive! 2010 will have a big surprise to kick start the party, be on time when the party starts to catch it! When I came in (too on time, cause they're getting late for 30 minutes), there were many people in front of a main bus which is wrapped into DJ station. This crowd looks like ordinary audience....

Suddenly they're dancing in the same move.

That was the surprise! Then the floor was prepared for Street Dance performed by crew from Japan and Singapore. There's also battle dance between those groups.

After that, DJ asked the audience to participate by showing their street dance skill. Some people hit the floor in turn without any commando, how confident they are!


This street dance euphoria actually only lasted for 1 hour, then it just turned into another usual clubbing party, with DJ Space Cowboy from UK. He's famous as Lady Gaga's DJ. I like Lady Gaga songs but I don't like this DJ spinning, too smashed and messy (I don't know if these are appropriate words for music term). He played Poker Face twice, failed! The next DJ's playing is local DJ Inquisitive, I know this one from Lady Gaga concert last year. This explains a lot why most remixed songs last night are Lady Gaga's, such as Poker Face, Monster and Starstruck.
Groove slam work it back
Filter that baby bump that track

Filter that baby bump that track

Space Cowboy just play that track

He made some spinnings in that part.. Space Cowboy.. Space Cowboy.. I love this song, if it's only not being mashed up by that guy.

Now I'm interested in signing up for hip hop dance class. Any recommendation here in Singapore?

  2. I know some good courses in Singapore for Latin (e.g Salsa), Indonesian (e.g. Bali) and Indian dance. I guess hip hop is not so popular here.

  3. Join a gym, they offer pretty much lots of fun hiphop classes with simpler choreography :)

  4. I knooow, once I joined Fitness First when I was still in Jakarta, that was my favorite class! I still remember the teacher's name: Kak Bayu :D
    Then in Singapore I'd joined FF again for one year, the one's near my office, but they only had dance class once a week in office hour time, and it was not hiphop. I've quit :D

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
