What I miss about Singapore...

When a friend of mine forwarded me an email about a concert to be held in Kota Kinabalu this coming May, it reminded me how I used to enjoy guessing and knowing who will be the next singer or band performing in Singapore. This of course happened before I return to Kota Kinabalu from the city of Lion about 4 years ago.

Besides some great friends that I've made, attending concerts is one of the things that I miss most about Singapore. I can't really recall all the concerts that I've attended (pardon me for being "ancient" hehe) but I know I've truly enjoyed concerts by Shaggy (I really love it when he sang "the strength of a woman" coz all the ladies in the house were shouting like mad including yours truly hahaha..), Ronan Keating (he is absolutely gorgeous esp when he shook his cute bump!!! Auuuwwww I can die!!!....excuse me hubby but this is just me being girly haha), Red Hot Chilli Pepper (really hot concert!), No Doubt (fantastic show!), Jewel (more of a relaxing and quiet evening as her performance was basically her singing on a stool the whole nite hehe) and errrr...what else ah?? Errrmmmm...yikes my memory died on me again!! Oh I've attended the Disney on Ice too and one really funky & modern Christian Concert!! I can't remember the others so won't crack my brain for it here hehe.. What I wanted to say is just that I do miss Singapore and hope I'll be able to return there for a break and meet up with all my friends soon :)

And oh...talking about the upcoming concert in KK this May, here are the details:
