A day in Singapore..

About 2 weeks ago, I went to Singapore to help out Isaac with his short film.. I drove in with Isaac and Jason.. Jason drove in his car as well.. So the day started at 7am, that's the time I woke up I think.. haha..

It was my first time going to Singapore after a almost 3 years.. We went through Malaysia's New Customs.. It had just open that day.. So we were one of the first few people passing there.. haha.. By few I mean like few thousands.. haha..

Next we picked up the crew and casts for the film at Woodlands.. Then we went for breakfast.. I got no idea where actually.. I just followed Jason only that day.. haha.. Literally everywhere we drove that day, I was just tailing Jason only.. So after breakfast, we were suppose to do the first scene at the St. John Headquarters but some problems arose and we couldn't do it there..

Trishna played Casey and Teresa played Nadia in the film.. There were no other characters in the film.. Just the both of them.. WOO HOO!!.. haha..

After that we drove to the next location which was The Marina Bay.. Most of the other scenes took place here.. THE LUNCH, THE TUNNEL, THE BIRTHDAY, THE PHONE CALL, and THE BABY scene.. All of it was there but at different corners of The Marina Bay..

Then after THE BABY scene we finally had our dinner + lunch I think.. All of us was so hungry but couldn't eat yet until we finish the scene.. So ended up at KFC's for dinner.. We continued with the other scenes after dinner.. Who ever thought it was going to be a long night.. haha..

So what was my job for the whole day?? haha.. I was the photographer / driver.. hahaha.. I had fun that day even though I reach home the next day 7am.. Literally one whole day out in Singapore.. It was very tiring but a very good experience for me.. My first time anyway seeing how these stuff is all done.. Thanks Isaac for inviting me to join you guys.. hehe..

So till my next post, there are still some more to blog about this filming.. Let you guys in first, the tapes for some of the scenes were spoilt and they had to re shoot it again.. Funny but kesian la man.. Had to redo again..
