Crikey - me neither.........seriously thought I'd be on my own as a Charlie no chums!!!!! Right well we'll all have to hook up then, definitely!!!!

Domel - yeah 4 seems pretty awesome but this sport has nearly bankrupted me!!!!! McLaren need to get some serious points to make me feel better about my empty bank account!!!

Looks like we're all getting/have got the gen admission tickets so we should meet up, have a few beers and reccy the track together!!!!

I hope to fly into Singapore on the 21st and as it's my birthday on the 22nd, hopefully I'll get to meet peeps who are up for a few drinks that night. Will prob head off on Mon 26th.

Anyway, if you fancy hooking up at some point for the f1 etc, inbox me or look me up on facebook. I'm Simone Si Young and my profile pic is Hamilton's car in Monaco!

Think I've got a similar plan, flying into Singapore on the 22nd and leaving on the 26th. I stayed in the Fernloft hostel in Kuala Lumpur and it was probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in! They've got 3 or 4 in Singapore so I'll probably stay in one of those, barring any ridiculous price rises or anything..

Premier Walkabout looks like the best value ticket I reckon. Someone with that ticket last year posted pictures of the view from Turn 3 on some forum and it looks like one of the best places to be!

Hope to see you all there!

Hi guys

We're nearly there!!!! Has everyone got their tickets yet??? I'm mindful that I still need to get mine but need to make sure they are compatible with everyone else. Also, have you all figured out where you're staying??

Cheers

Simone

Fantastic F1 banter.

Hopefully we can conspire to have a TP meetup. I land on the friday at midday. 2nd time out there,since last time,was all work and no play. If you like the beach,we should meetup and hit Sentosa island for decent beach time,food,music and just a beautiful setting (Tanjong Beach Club). Sunday brunch (to cure that 'headache' is famous.

Fly out on the monday as well for New Zealand.

You can drop me a message via tpoint.

Beach sounds like a good plan - superb way to relax after the previous night's practice/qualies.

Ok - best plan to meet up is to probably meet in a certain pub at a certain time each night as we're all flying in at different times/dates.....that way our group will grow each day, and any excuse to prop up a bar!

Anyone who can vouch for a good pub in Singapore? Beer prices pretty grim I think so one not at the Raffles end of the spectrum would be good!

This one looks pretty lively:

By the way, domel - where in Borneo are you coming from? I'm heading out to work in Sepilok/Sandakan in the new year.....perhaps you could give me a few tips over a couple of beers about where to head to in my spare time?!

Not long now!

Booze prices suck and its worse during F1 weekend.

I'm bringing any much alcohol from home(way cheaper)in my luggage. Apparently, ex-pats etc hit the 7eleven and head out to parks etc, and drink. supposedly quite festive.

Yep I heard that too. Apparently the cheapest place is the duty free shop next to the arrivals lounge - you can go in even after landing but just need boarding pass/passport as usual.

The backpacker pub Prince of Wales where I am staying one night has reasonably priced beer (and live music every night) plus the hostel I have booked into for other nights have a bar downstairs which sells beer at $1....so you are all welcome to enjoy these facilities at both places if you like!!!

I land on the 21st and will stay at the POW backpackers pub that night......anyone there by then please come and join me for a few beers! Will plan to stick there for most of the evening.

Otherwise, for anyone arriving on later dates, please drop me a text so we can all arrange to hook up.....just inbox me for my number

See you next week guys!!!
