Tattoo Lovers Just Love Uniquely Singapore

Tattoo Pride for Tattoo Artistry – Singapore Tattoo Show Tat2 2010

Tattoo Lovers will descend upon Singapore in 2010 … seeking creativity,  education in responsible tattooing, observe fusion of east and west Tattoo Artistry … and 3 days of massive entertainment.

With the intention of not only providing a show for tattoo lovers, both in Singapore and Asia, but also wanting to ensure sufficient education in responsible tattooing amongst teenagers and young adults; the Singapore tattoo show is coming back for the 2nd time, bringing more entertainment and exposure to people through this unique form of art. Organized by Debra Tan and Kirby Lian from Utopia Studios, the show is to be held at the Singapore Expo, Hall 6B from 8 to 10 January 2010, starting from 12pm to 10pm on the 8th and 9th, and 12pm to 8pm on the 10th.

Tat2 2010 Event Invitation: Mingle with over 15,000 Tattoo Fans & Artists

With guest appearance by Kim Saigh (LA ink), Tim Hendricks (Gold Rush tattoo), Michelle Myles (Daredevil tattoo and winner of TLC’s Tattoo War Competition at the 6th Annual Boston Tattoo Convention), Shige (Yellow Blaze Tattoo, Japan) and returning to this show again will be Chris Garver (Miami ink) and Bob Tyrell (Night Gallery). Also attending the show will be VIP guest, Matt Booth, celebrity jewellery designer and owner of Room101 who is also the guest judge for this upcoming year’s tattoo show with Room101 being the major sponsor for this event.

People attending Tat2 2010 can be prepared for a wide variety of visual feasts with a line up that includes Rubberboy’s performance, Best male and female tattoo competition, and the first of its kind in Asia – Miss Tattoo Asia, alongside with over 300 internationally regarded artists coming together to showcase their talent in full view of audiences who are fans or just mere curious. This is the place to be if you are an avid tattoo collector or  people who are interested to see what Tattoo today is all about, a culture that used to be taboo but is so widely welcomed in recent times.

The newest addition to this coming year’s show is the Miss Tattoo Asia segment. Probably the first of its kind, it attempts to open the minds of the general public that beauty comes in all forms, especially in recent times where people are exposed to so many different things and the form of beauty is somewhat subjective. Trying to break away from the stereotypical female beauty, it aims to address a form of liberalism and modernist way of perceiving beauty.

Apart from this unique beauty contest, there is also the best male and female tattoo competition where proud owners of beautiful masterpieces on their bodies get to flaunt and compete to stand a chance to win the top prize. You’d be surprised to see how realistic and beautiful a tattoo can get, as the standard and works of tattoo artists are getting better and better, especially with quite a handful of artists who already have a history of doing fine arts before they ventured into tattooing.

The message of this show to entertain is made evident with other programmes such as the Rubberboy, who has three Guinness World Records for being the most flexible man alive. Daniel Browning Smith, who is also known as the Rubberboy, is an actor, entertainer and contortionist who also went on shows such as Ripley’s Believe it or not, the Oprah Winfrey show and the grand prize winner of 30 Seconds to Fame. Works by finalists of Beauty is Skin Deep, a body art design competition, will also be displayed in the art gallery section as well as works of graffiti artists and some of the tattoo artists’ works, showcasing their talents and passion on canvas.

And we said entertainment – Singapore’s legendary Velvet Underground is our party venue sponsor and there will be nightly events to give artists and fans the opportunity to mix, dance & party as only possible in uniquely Singapore – Asia’s Jewel city.

School Nationals – Singapore sports kids get publicity

Singapore Sports Kids get burst in exposure:

The School Nationals is an exciting new sports programme that puts the local school sports scene on centre stage. It aims to get Singaporeans excited about school sports and the youths in sports.

In the Round-Up segment we showcase the National School Sports Championships across all three divisions (A, B and C), with coverage on all 26 sports. It will keep Singaporeans updated about the latest results of interschool championships and the achievements of school athletes.

The programme also aims to give school athletes greater exposure via the segment, Upstarts . This segment will feature a different young athlete each week. Viewers will get to find out more about these promising young athletes – learn about their passion for sports, how do they strike a balance between sports and academic work; and what do they aspire to achieve in sports.

Check out the Match-up segment to catch some fun and lighthearted sporting moments as we pit a top school athlete against a national athlete from the same sport.

Special Event: modern astronomy & the dawn of creation


An overview of modern astronomy and our quest to find the dawn of creation

Premier’s Fellow
School of Physics, University of  Western Australia

Astronomy is the oldest scientific endeavour of mankind. The pattern and regular motions
of the Sun, Moon, stars and other planets have guided our agriculture, our religions, our
technological development and our journeys of discovery since before recorded history.
Over the past 400 years, the invention and the development of telescopes has allowed us to
step outside our own solar system to begin a new voyage of discovery, back in time, to the
birth of the cosmos.

On the journey so far, we have found a treasure trove of objects and
phenomena from star destroying black holes, to whole galaxies in the process of collision,
to new planets like our own Earth. We are now nearing a period in our cosmic time travel
that will contain one of the Universe’s most profound events –the first light from the first
star – the “dawn of creation”. This event will be found and studied by a new telescope
which, when completed in 2020, will be the world’s largest astronomical facility. The
telescope is called the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and Western Australia is currently the
front-runner in an international competition to host the SKA. The remote desert of WA,
home to Aboriginal peoples who are arguably the world’s first astronomers, may provide
mankind with its clearest view of the first objects created – the seeds of the Universe we
see around us today.

Perth Education City is proud to present Professor Peter Quinn for a special seminar at the
Australian Education Showcase 2009 on the cosmic journey back in time – the findings, the
mysteries uncovered and the new generation of telescopes that will be built.

Venue: Suntec Exhibition & Coonvention Centre Hall 402 Level 4

Date: 21 March 2009, Saturday 12 noon.

The Prodigy’s sweaty undies

Rookie band runner/driver reports in about the Prodigy’s undies….

IT’S almost midnight and I’m waiting outside the Hyatt for The Prodigy‘s sweaty undies.

As a rookie band runner/driver at Friday’s Big Day Out, this odorous task is my last duty for the night, although I dare say there are plenty of fans who would gladly swap places with me.

One of the crew finally emerges from the depths of the hotel and kindly picks up the errant socks, shoes, belts and other items of clothing that have been shed in the back of the Tarago during the tyre-squealing, post-gig dash.

The Prodigy LIVE in Singapore Feb 3 2009

Having only moments earlier watched the band perform from backstage I was able, for a couple of minutes, to get a feel for what it must be like to be in one of the most popular acts in the festival.

Despite the swoon-inducing heat, the crowd was heaving. The air was densely humid, both from the mist sprayers and the punters’ sweat, but it didn’t make any difference to the fans screaming for the guys on stage. It must be awesome to be a rock star.

Having been offered the chance to work “undercover” at the BDO, I was unable to resist the opportunity to get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes at Australia’s biggest music festival.

And my first job of the day was to collect UK dance legends The Prodigy from the airport.
