After the movie, we proceeded to the Gallery Bar at St James Power Station, right opposite Golden Village at VivoCity where the gala screening was held. A small, cosy post party was held there where the bloggers got to meet some of the cast and crew, up-close-and-personal. Here are some photos taken at the event:

I was stationed at the artistes’ holding tent just beside the stage – meaning I have excellent access to the red carpet, the stage and even backstage with the celebrities. However, as I have to work also, I can only sneak in a few pictures here and there.
Preparation and rehearsals started from today and here are some behind-the-scene photos to share with everyone. 🙂 My apology for the lack of indepth text description as it’s already 4am now and I have to report to Marina Bay in 6 hours time… leaving not much time for sleep.
