    Thanks guys, I think i'll park at Central itself since it's almost the same as a parking coupon. Hmmm... possibilities as a future base of operations for street shooting and general roaming around.

    if i'm not mistaken, the street-side parking lots only start charging from 8:30am onwards.
    So it's FREE PARKING when you arrive, and possibly even covering a quick breakfast after sunrise

    If you enter any of the shopping centres before 7am, they have a charge before 7am, and then another one kicks in after 7. So it could get expensive.
    Why not all park along Carpenter Street, just opposite Central?

    hahaha it's whether you're willing to take the risk, that's all.
    I live fairly close to Clarke Quay, so if the sky is badly overcast and/or raining at my place, it's safe to assume that the light won't be wonderful. So in that case I'll rate sleep more highly than taking so-so pictures.

    It's a tough call! If you see heavy clouds to the south, and moving farther south, then also can assume the rain will reach Clarke Quay...

    It is a tough call to postpone or cancel due to unfavorable weather conditions.
    .....pray...for good weather... fantastic sky... superb lights...

    To get there by 6.30am, it will still be dark when i leave my place so can't really tell how bad the weather will be unless of course its already raining cats and dogs by then. So i'll probably be at the venue regardless.

    Since u r staying nearby the Clarke Quay & can easily view the weather condition,I think u should take down all the members contact and drop us SMS within 5.30am for confirm the outing GO or Not Go..
