    I suppose the big crowd has gathered at Vivo. Raffles City is the place for those who wish to avoid the crowd. Need to arrive like 10-15min before the show.

    Hope I got time to drop by this weekend.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    Yah the stage at Raffles is like so high! U'll need a ladder in order to take or u'll always be pointing upwards.

    The performance at Raffles City is quite boring to me ........... no dances .....just playing of musical instruments.

    The stage is also high up and small.

    In the end I only took some close-up shots of the flowers from the well wishers.

    Yeah that's what i was saying. This stage is so far the weirdest kind i've seen for stage events. The one at Vivo is ideal for taking this event.

    Thanks Clockunder and Snoweagle for the valuable info.

    So, looks like I will have to go to Vivo and jostle with the BiG crowd there. Or find some other subjects to shoot la.
