Mint Showcase II – Media Preview

Mint Leong, she’s a very bubbly, very friendly and very nice little girl. I remembered her when I first met her during Singapore Social Media Day 2011, whereby I was helping out in a photography sharing session and she was part of the organising committee. Mint also performed during Singapore Social Media Day 2011 too with her singing, mesmerising the crowds with her vocals and talent. Meeting her and listening to her singing for the first time, I felt that she had a great music and singing talent inside her.

Recently, Mint invited me to her upcoming Mint Showcase II – Media Preview, performed at All About Eve Bar. Mint and her band performed 6 songs from her upcoming Mint Showcase II during the Media Preview, giving her loyal friends and supporters a glimpse of her upcoming Mint Showcase II concert. Listening to Mint and her band performing, it was really awesome and I liked it a lot! I am a supporter of music rock bands that play in pubs, the feeling of live rock unplugged music. Mint and her band’s singing reminds me of the good old days of 新谣 (xin yao) music, with artists like 梁文福, Eric Moo etc … Their music and songs sings into our heart and soul.

During her Mint Showcase II – Media Preview, I didn’t take many photographs because my photography gear were at another location in preparation for my evening photo shoot event. After her rousing performance, I had to rush off and couldn’t stay behind and chat with Mint, as well as fellow friends from the social media/blogging scene.

Mint shared the history and beginnings of Mint Showcase II –

The humble beginnings of Mint Showcase started in January 2011, when Mint and Band performed for a sold-out crowd of 100. Mint Showcase I consisted of 10 original songs, all of which were written & composed by Mint herself. Mint and Band would like to thank everyone who helped to make Mint Showcase I possible.

Following the success of Mint Showcase I, Mint and Band started preparation for Mint Showcase II, 5 months before the actual performance dates. Mint Showcase II promises to be bigger and better than the first. This time round, they are performing a total of 12 songs, comprising of 6 originals from Mint Leong  (from Mint Showcase I),  1 original from Desmond Wong and 5 cover songs with the theme, Dreams & Support: 我是一只鱼,感动天感动地,我的未来不是梦,你还是要幸福 and 红蜻蜓。All the performing songs are produced & arranged by Won, the owner of All About Eve Bar.

Celebrating Singapore’s Social Media Day 2011!

This was the first time, a maiden event celebrating Social Media Day in Singapore, our very first and very own Singapore Social Media Day 2011, celebrated on the 25th June 2011 at *SCAPE ! Organised by bloggers for bloggers, tweeples and people in the social media networks, channels and circle.

A day of fun and events, started with my small photography workshop sharing and an interactive hands-on interactive events photography workshop with my participants, my first time helping out at Singapore Social Media Day, even with 2 registered participants, Colin and Juliana, supported by Amanda and Sue who came down to support me whilst they are busy with their activities. Since it wasn’t my first workshop sharing, I am better prepared than last time and it was intended to be more sharing of my photography experiences, personal projects, tips and tricks and where to go take photographs in Singapore. After my sharing, we went around photographing Singapore Social Media Day event, the SoMe wall, the performances and the crowds at Singapore Social Media Day 2011! I had lots of fun too, exchanging Juliana’s GF2 with my 1Dmk3, playing with the wide angle pancake lens while Juliana was testing out the high fps of the 1Dmk3!

After my photography hands-on session was over, I continued to stay behind capturing photographs of the event, watching performances and making more new friends at Singapore Social Media Day 2011! The blog shops were fun and interesting, packed with nice and unique stuff for sale and some of their proceeds go to charity. Overall, it’s good to catch up with blogger friends whom I knew and met before, finally meeting blogger friends in real life and last but not least knowing more new blogging/social media/twitter friends! Do check out some of the photos uploaded into my facebook photo album!

This event was organised by the bloggers forming the Singapore Social Media Day Ex-Co and I would to congratulate them on a great job! Well done and keep it up! I would also like to thank the Singapore Social Media Day Ex-Co for giving me this opportunity to do a sharing on my photography experiences and social media networking.
