Day 3: Singapore Menswear Fashion Week 2011

Free seating.
Started the day early and was at Marina Bay Sands(MBS) at 830am to watch rehearsals for the Joey Samson show and note down possible changes or anything needed still to do.  Am loving the music and set up with stills as backdrop.  Here is an idea of what am talking about...  
Stop!  in the name of love?
Oliver's twist.
En Point.
Doesn't he remind you of Jason Priestley in the original Beverly Hills 90210?
Surfer's up with Keanu Reeves look alike.
Don't look back...
Last march.
Under the microscope.
 There's a room backstage where all the clothes, accessories and shoes are kept.  Racks of designer collections fill the space almost like a can of sardines.  A shopping haven waiting for all eyes to see.  Finally was able to take a long break after rehearsal and had the day free a little before lunch.  Had to wait for photographer Joan Bitagcol coz she was coming in at 230pm in MBS.  While we were waiting, Joey and I ate at Mozza (restaurant of Mario Batali-the famous chef who had a show called Molto Mario).  When Joan finally arrived, we headed to Orchard to make a quick look around on what we can potentially add to our closets.  Nothing really much this time around, we were all on "diet shopping" mode to save for a rainy day?  Perhaps...
A room full.
Like a deck of cards.
My production i.d, plus behind are the dates and time slots of the shows and events.
Busy schedule.
Set cards of almost all the models participating in the show.
Will surely miss the Style concert tonight.

Microscopic puzzlement.
Makes you wonder what this photo is.  It could be the fine fibers of the pina or jusi (both are indigenous materials used to create fabrication for the Barong Tagalog)used as detailing in Joey Samson's collection.  An architectural wonder tinkering our minds of endless possibilities.  From simple connect the dots to the vast constellations, whatever comes to mind in is anybody's interpretation of this visual amazement.
