    hey luval, perhaps you could be so kind to share with us what the timing is? rather than just tell us that there's a timing, which is obviously so.

    the first rehearsals at padang will be on the 25th...2 wks later...on a saturday afternoon. they will most probably close the surrounding roads from late noon onwards. holding area is most probably beach road camp and marina promenade.

    I took part in the 2000 mobile column. The holding area for all vehicles is the huge carpark near stadium. Beside Leisure Dome.

    Most practices are done at Tuas but they should be doing the actual thing very soon. Maybe this weekend.

    If I can recall from the 2000 NDP, the mobile column vehicles were all lined up along Nicoll Highway rite? Just beside Suntec that stretch of highway. Awesome sight man.
