MoS lands in Singapore

So, Friday night, couple of friends and I went to the official opening night of The Ministry of Sound here in Singapore. Located down at the highly popular restaurant/bar/club area of Singapore, Clarke Quay, its made the place get from busy to even busier.

I went with an open mind, probably a few pre-conceptions in my mind, but hoping to have a good night out. But it was a rather *meh* experience. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I was wearing new shoes (what a fool, do I never learn!) that killed my feet.. and probably most of my mood. In the end, I surrendered and just took them off!

Anyhow, the club itself .. MASSIVE. The largest club in Singapore, double the size of Zouk (but you know what, somehow Zouk still feels like "home" .. haha!). Its sectioned off into various areas:

1. the main dance arena in the centre, playing signature MoS techno and might I add rather disappointingly too.. may be if I was off my face, I might have enjoyed it but that kinda leaves ;

2. Pure, the white room which plays lounge. Hmmm not sure why, but it felt very Velvet-esque except that everything was so bright.. the floors were white, but not for long - clubbers do not have clean shoes!;

3. Smoove, the hip-hop/r'n'b room, with a rather kinky cage surrounding the dance floor. I do like my r'n'b but sad to say, I couldn't get my groove really going to the music they played;

4. 54, yes as you may have guessed, disco music and lit-up dance floor. Think John Travolta. No further comment.

5. Various VIP rooms/sections.

Oh and the biggest surprise was bumping into sexy Sui Lin (nice to have met you girl! ;)) .. very random, but goes to show how small the world is! :)

So all in all .. it was an experience to see what this famous UK club had to offer, but quite disappointed overall. However, I'm thinking it might have had to do with my aching feet so I MAY go and try it out again .. but with my proper dancing shoes!!!!
